If you are a teen girl, you know you are starting to get really interested in any beauty tip you can get your hands on. This means from your hair to makeup as well as taking care of your skin so that it looks good and you look trendy. You probably are already spending a lot of your own money if not your parents money on expensive skin care products when you could save a lot of money by using some natural things that will work just as good as those expensive products you might be buying.
There is an old saying that less is more and this is a truly good rule of thumb for a teen to follow, especially if you want to have a natural beautiful look. This starts with your makeup. Try to avoid caking on those rainbow colors and tons of foundation. You should only use coverups sparingly and only for areas that have blemishes. You will keep a youthful look if you wear less makeup. You should stick with the tinted lip glosses and just a little blush which will give you a truly natural glow. You should keep your hair simple too. A simple, easy to take care of hairdo is going to give you a natural and beautiful look.
Teens do tend to keep late hours especially if they are cramming for tests and trying to keep up with their social life especially on the weekends and this can actually make your eyes become puffy because of the lack of rest. You can fix this by simply going to the refrigerator and taking out a cucumber and slicing it. Take two slices and put one on each closed eyelid. Cucumbers have a natural way of hydrating your skin and it will lessen the puffiness of your eyes because they are 90% water. The coldness is also a factor in the reduction of the puffiness around your eyes. It's also a good thing to do everyday as a regular routine to keep the skin around your eyes in good condition. You only have to do this for a few minutes per day.
By taking care of your skin now is going to ensure that you are going to have good skin when you grow into an adult. During your teen years your skin will go through a lot of changes because of the different hormones that are being produced. It's not uncommon to have oily skin but this can turn into acne breakouts. So you need to try and take control of your skin. So, always make sure to wash your face before you put any makeup on and then make sure to wash all of it off at night before going to bed. If you sleep with your makeup on you are only going to clog your pores and then more oil is going to start building up.
You can give yourself your own homemade facial by using oatmeal. You just need to cook up some oatmeal and let it get cold. Then put the cold oatmeal on your face and let it dry before you rinse it off. This is a great way to smooth the skin and give it a natural glow.
Always make sure to use a moisturizer for both your skin as well as some sort of protection from the sun. When you moisturize your skin it will keep your skin younger and will help to slow down the wrinkles when you start getting older. You need to also protect your skin form the rays of the sun. You can do this with one item if you find a moisturizer that also has a SPF of 15 or above. This will moisturize and protect your skin at the same time.
Your hair needs to be moisturized and protected just like your skin and you need to get conditioners that will moisturize your hair as well as protect it from the sun, curling irons, highlighting and blow dryers. Always using a moisturizing conditioner is going to help keep your hair looking healthy and shiny.
