There’s homework to do and hormones to deal with — being a teenager truly gets you at your wits’ end. There are endless bad hair days, followed by common skin conditions such as acne, eczema, contact dermatitis, and psoriasis, all of which dull your shine. Here are beauty tips for teenage girls that will make you want to fall in love with your skin one more time:
1. Drink Enough Water
You want to chug about eight to twelve glasses of water a day to keep your body hydrated. Water is life, so you want to drink it as if your life depends on how much water you intake. This will help you regulate body temperature, maintain blood volume, carry waste products out, lubricate body tissues, and transport nutrients throughout the body.
2. Wash Your Face
Washing your face is an integral part of achieving that glow. You want to use a mild cleaner to wash off dead skin cells and other external elements that may have accumulated on the surface.
3. Less is More, but More is Better
Skin tones are subject to color fluctuations throughout the year, so it’s good practice to have two shades of foundation at your disposal at all times. You want to choose one that matches your skin tone perfectly and the other that’s a bit lighter than the first. Blend the two and use them as needed.
But remember that you’re building a foundation, not a wall, so you want to avoid piling on too much product on top of your pores as it may lead to clogging. The base must be blended in and smooth to touch.
4. How are the Eyes Doing?
Primers, eyeliners, eyeshadows, and tens of other products can take the front foot for eye makeup. However, the smudgy look that’s clearly gone overboard is something teenagers should refrain from on a daily. An eyeliner or shimmery eyeshadow should do the trick in most cases as they define the eyes’ natural shape and brighten the region.
5. Leave the Lips Bare
There’s something about glossy lips that pulls the youthful look together. So rather than hunting for lipstick shades, a teenager should work with lip glosses to achieve a dewy, glowy finish.
