Teenage is the phase when the hormones levels in the body rise and it undergoes various physiological changes. Lot of teenagers, thus, suffer from acne, pimple, whiteheads and blackheads etc. during their puberty. This can be easily cured with proper care because it is only a temporary problem. Here are some beauty tips for teenagers which will naturally keep the skin healthy and glowing:1. Always use products intended for the type of your skin. Skin types can be classified into dry skin, combination skin, normal skin, oily skin and sensitive skin. It is very important that you use beauty essentials suitable for your skin type.
Drink lots of water. This is a very common advice given and yet often ignored. Water cleanses the body and eliminates harmful toxins, thus naturally helping the skin glow. It also aids the healthy growth of hair and nails.
Before buying any make up products like foundation or lipstick, always try it on a patch of your skin like the back of your palm. If there is any itchy sensation, redness or any unusual skin tingling, you should skip buying it.
Natural alternatives to the expensive scrubs and face packs include mashed papaya, lemon and honey, almond cereal and milk, oats and milk etc. You’ll be amazed as to how these ingredients, which can be found in your kitchen/household, change your skin’s texture.
Always use natural products for hair care. During hair cleansing, never forget to condition the hair follicles.
If you have dry hair, it is advisable to deep condition your hair once a week at least. Oils like almond oil, coconut oil, olive oil etc. are excellent deep conditioning oils.
Have a healthy diet which includes at least 5 portions of fresh fruit and vegetables. Also include nuts, dairy products, green leafy vegetables and healthy meat (if you are a non-vegetarian). A nourished body will have healthy skin and hair.
Exercise daily. Exercising not only helps you lose that baby fat and prevent it from coming back, but also tones up the muscles. Exercising has been scientifically proved to help in blood circulation, which indirectly affects the health of skin, hair and nails.
Avoid heat styling and overdose of topical application of chemical beauty products. These only provide a temporary effect and relief. Prolonged usage of such techniques may also damage your skin/hair!
Have a healthy sleep routine. Your body generates new cells and cleanses away harmful toxins during your sleep time. So do not ignore that “beauty sleep”.
If you have a very severe case of skin or hair problem, it is always advisable to visit a dermatologist as soon as possible. Never ignore any unusual symptom and always take good care of yourself!
