Non Makeup Beauty Tips for Pre-Teens Who Can't Wear It Yet ...

If you've ever experienced your friends - or even parents - make a comment about the way you look (i.e. "you would look so much better if you did this or that"), you'll probably know how self-conscious it can make you feel; it's not a nice feeling when others make you think twice about your own appearance. You might even feel a sense of pressure to take their advice on board and change the way you look to please them. On top of that, if you're in your pre-teen years there's a fair chance that makeup may not be an option for you to try. But did you know that there's plenty of ways you can feel just as amazing and full of self-confidence without any makeup at all?

Artprise has shared with us plenty of beauty tips you can use to look and feel even better, without a single product or cosmetic!

1 Be Clean and Hygienic

hair, face, blond, person, beauty, Being clean is all about being fresh and looking your best. If you’re clean, chances are you’ll look great and feel even better. Take a shower once a day, preferably in the morning. The shower will wake you up, and there’s a chance your body could sweat in the night. NOTE: If you have brothers or sisters who take showers in the morning, and there is only one shower, take a shower before you go to bed. If it’s hot out, don’t sleep with the covers, and sleep with the sheets instead! Wash your hair every other day. This will make it easier for your hair to retain moisture and will make it easier to manage. But the best thing to do if it’s oily is to wash it every day. Find shampoos and conditioners that suit your hair, not just the nicest smelling ones. No frizz, shine, smooth, manageable, thickener, straighter, moisture-enhancer, and dandruff are just a few different types. Don’t use too much of any product. Too much gel or mousse can result in a really bad hair day!

2 Moisturise Your Skin

musician, music, singing, Drink a lot of water (that is what helps keep your skin moisturized) and find a lotion that suits your skin. There are different types of lotion for different skin types. If your face is oily, always use lotion. It may seem ironic but it’s still important. Use one that’s meant for someone who has acne. If your skin is dry, use cream- or lotion-based moisturizers. They will help your skin stay moisturized longer.

3 Wash Your Face Daily

human action, face, hair, person, nose, Do this once in the morning and once at night. Washing your face will help wash away dirt and layers of skin that build up over the day. Try to find a face wash that is appropriate for your skin. You probably want a “non-comedogenic” wash, which simply means that it won’t clog your pores. If you’re beginning to get pimples, use over the counter acne products. If it’s getting worse and you’re worried about it, visit your doctor who can prescribe something to help.

4 Get a Nice Haircut

hair, blond, pink, beauty, hairstyle, Any length will do, but find the length that complements your face, too. Your hair makes a big difference to your image and your face. Ask your hairstylist what would be suitable for you. Try to have a hairstyle which is easy to maintain. With longer hair styles, you want to start with long hair and no bangs. Try a side swept layer look if you have bangs.

5 Use Lotion over Perfume

finger, close up, mouth, hand, leg, 2 Instead of using perfume, use a nice smelling lotion. Nice smelling soap can give off a perfume scent, as can deodorant!

6 If You Have Braces, Find Ways to Make It Work for You

model, singing, singer, 3 If you have braces, it’s not bad. Almost everybody has them at some point. Try to stay clear of getting more than two colors. Even two colors may look a little too harsh for your face. Choose simple pastel colors, they look very pretty on braces. Stay away from yellow and neon blue! They will just make your teeth look yellow, and not white. But most importantly, just find colors that make you happy. Stay natural. Try nail art to match with your clothes. After all, you want to look good.

7 Wear Nice Clothes

beauty, photo shoot, dress, romance, model, You don’t really want to use baggy pants and bold sweaters. Fitted clothes will make you look better. Dress to the seasons. If it’s summer, you should wear something sunny and bubbly! If it’s winter, wear something warm, comfy, and understated.

8 Try Dressing in Light Colours

fashion, spring, photo shoot, model, Light colors scream fun, lively, and adventurous. If you have dark colored hair, try a light gray or blue! If you have light colored hair, don’t try to dress too light, maybe go in the middle. For instance, if you’re a blonde, it’s recommended wearing a peachy color. It looks great with your hair! You could also try pale pinks, light greens, yellows, you name it! Remember, always wear whatever you think looks great on you. If you don’t feel good wearing your clothes, chances are you won’t look good.

9 Wear Colours That Suit You

clothing, leg, hairstyle, thigh, long hair, You are a unique person, and what fits another person might not fit you. Wear blues/greens/browns to bring out your eyes, and pinks to bring out your blush (if you have one). Make sure the colors stand out but go with your skin/hair. If you have red hair, wear green! Redheads look beautiful in green; try not to go for the lime/neon greens, however. Try to find hunter greens that make your hair stand out. If you have slightly yellowish skin be careful about oranges and yellows. You can wear black, but don’t overdo it. Sometimes a black shirt with blue jeans can make you look really skinny, or curvy. Black screams sophisticated and mature. It can also say you’re mysterious!

10 Have at Least One Cute Pair of Shoes

footwear, shoe, high heeled footwear, leather, leg, Have something to dress it all up. Whether they are boots, sandals, wedges, you pick it! But make sure it is appropriate! Go for different shoes in different seasons. If you live in a place that gets cold during the winter, you obviously don’t want to wear espadrilles in December. You also don’t want to wear Uggs during the summer. Mix it up.

11 Smile - a Lot!

facial expression, red, lady, beauty, smile, A smile is a great accessory! This means brushing your teeth to get that beautiful white smile. If you can’t brush your teeth after every snack or meal, chew on a piece of cleaning-gum. It’ll make your breath smell nice and keep your teeth clean.

12 Build Self-confidence

screenshot, Confidence is the most attractive thing, so be proud of who you are. Throw your shoulders back and your chin up high. Keep your hair out of your face and a smile. Don’t worry, you look like a million bucks.

13 Be Proud of Yourself and Never Criticise

performance, performance art, performing arts, stage, singing, We were all made unique and special. Remember, your “flaws” aren’t something to be ashamed of—they’re what make you distinctly YOU. Don’t try to be someone you’re not. If there is someone at school that you’re jealous of … think of reasons that you are equal to her. Just be yourself. Remind yourself everyday of the people who love you! Mom, Dad, your best friends, your pets, your teachers etc. It will boost your confidence! If you do wear makeup, don’t wear a lot, only use as much as you need to fit your skin type.
