Tips for Teenage Girl

Growing Up as a Girl

  • First Things First- The first step in understanding puberty and your body is to know that your questions and concerns are completely normal.Women of all ages have experienced some of the very things you are experiencing now. Its important to remember this because many times a female adult can answer some of your questions. However, if you are not ready to ask someone those questions, we will try to answer them here.
  • When Does it Begin- In girls, puberty usually begins between the ages of 9 and 13 years. It lasts about two to three years, so the body changes have been completed by the time a girl is 11 to 16 years old.
  • Help Me Get Rid of this Acne-Donot worry, you are not the only teenager facing these annoying blemishes. About 90 percent of all teenagers put up with acne. Fortunately, many have the milder form and get just a few blackheads or whiteheads now and then.The excess oil causes the openings of the glands to be clogged with sebum and dead cells. If the plug stays below the surface, it is called a whitehead;
  • Do I Need to Lose Weight-This is a big concern for many female teenagers. Almost 25 percent of adolescents are already overweight or even obese (harsh word, but true) by medical standards. Extra weight gain often starts in puberty, and overweight teens are very likely to remain overweight as adults. So the teen years are a great time to learn how to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Beauty Tips for Teen Girls

  • In Sixth grade, wear lip gloss, some mascara, and maybe a little bit of pale eyeshadow; don't go too heavy or it may look bad.
  • If you want to try out more types of makeup, keep that for home experiments. As for clothes, keep it in your comfort level.
  • If you are wearing a short shirt, check in the mirror to see if your stomach hangs out of the bottom. Otherwise, wear something a little bit longer.
  • If you are acne prone, try foundation. Remember thet even oily skin can get flaky and that looks horrible with foundation. So try it on weekends first and ask your mother (or someone that uses foundation well) if it looks okay.
  • In Seventh grade you might want to try eyeliner. But not too much because you don't want to look like a racoon!
  • You might be wearing tighter jeans now and probably starting to get concerned with impressing the guys, so it's safe to try out more mature styles such as a sleek leather blazer, or lower cut necklines.
  • Ninth grade: high school! This is a big transition. Now in the same world as seniors, you are going to want to look like the rest of your peers. You should by now have your makeup and hair styles already.
  • If its known for it's left side part, part it even deeper. Make a straight style even sleeker and hip. Learn to make youre curls tighter, or looser.
  • It's also good to try new shoes, try wearing spikier ankle boots with a pair of hot jeans and a blouse. Chunkier heels aren't as hip as spikes as you get older. Incorporate accessories into your outfit.
  • You know what you like, so go and find clothes that fit your style, but crank it up a notch for a more mature feel.
