16 Beauty Tips You'll Wish Someone Told You In High School
Written by Vanessa Hojda
When you’re a teenager you’re more receptive to change. That’s when most us start to figure out what we like and what we don’t like. It’s also the time when we develop some of our worst habits. That’s why it’s good to think seriously about slowly doing certain things for your health and appearance that go a long way like:
- Shower twice a day
- Use more moisturizer
- Drink more water
It sounds like what our moms always tell us: ‘Eat your veggies, sleep at a decent time and don’t slouch!’ and of course they’re right. In the long term, all of those basic habits can improve our lives by a lot. Beauty tips are another example of things that nobody really tells us about unless we go out of our way to read about them.
That’s why we put together a list of beauty tips that you wish someone had told you about in high school (and if you know any teenagers, it might be worth passing this along!)
Remove all your makeup before going to bed. There’s no reason why you should fill your pores with sweat, sebum and makeup. This terrible combination of stuff can clog your pores and give you the worst pimples ever.
Exfoliate your entire body (not just your face!). Exfoliating your face is important because it’s the place where you get the most amount of pimples. By reducing dead skin cells, you’re also giving your skin a chance to breathe and to look more radiant. And if you do this to your whole body, your skin stays fresh and radiant. It’s the best anti-aging technique out there.
Know when to toss old makeup and old beauty products. News flash! Beauty products have an expiration date. The best case scenario if you keep using something months after you bought is that the product doesn’t work. But the worst case scenario means infections and irritated skin. You don’t want that, so keep track of when you bought your makeup and beauty products.
Cut out these harmful things from your diet for some dramatic improvement: cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine and sugar. And if you want to take your dietary changes to the next level in order to improve your skin and hair: drink more water, reduce exposure to street pollution and eat more leafy greens and fruits.
