Teenage is the most difficult of all ages. This is the age when a whole lot of changes manifest themselves in the body thanks to the ravaging hormones and their functions.
Even as a teenager finds herself growing taller, she finds a lot of other changes in her body. There are changes in the thinking also. The teenager suddenly equates with the beauty queens she sees on the television, and in several teen magazines, and in an attempt to look like them, she finds herself rushing to beauty parlors. What the teenager really needs is a bit of understanding and supportive behavior on the part of parents.
The teenager generally learns to recognise her skin the first thing of all. The skin helps her relate to the new identity she has found in the society by being pushed in as an adult in the making.
But most teenagers are generally hyper-sensitive to skin issues like pimples and boils. Be sure to help the teenager sort out her skin type as dry, oily or both. This way, the teenager can set up a distinct regimen for herself and her skin. She is bound to do her best to fight off the acne, and use a face-wash to make her skin glow.
Hair is one of the most important parts of the body that undergo changes with the onset of puberty. Help the teenager recognise the type of hair she has. It can be wavy, curly, straight, dry or oily. Identification of the hair type is going to help the teen with the proper hair care technique she opts for.
