What do you love about your appearance? Is it your eyes, lips, hair? What don’t you like?

What are your best characteristics?

Also, do not put impossible things in the dislike column. Example: “I am too tall.” That’s something you can’t change, so embrace it!

With pimples and changes in your body it’s easy to begin to feel insecure at times, but no matter what, keep your head high and let it be known you love who you are. Don’t be arrogant because no one likes a snob, but if people make fun of you, use your humor to turn the joke back on them. If you’re sure of who you are and what you believe, the other girls will want to be like you.

If you don’t like your hair, try a new style. If you wish you could be more patient, start practicing!

Ashley Tisdale, should you care what she says, says, “I always think natural makeup is prettiest. It just looks prettier.” And it’s no lie! Mascara, eyeliner, powder, and lip gloss are all you need. If you don’t want to wear makeup, that’s fine, too.

Set goals for yourself!
  9. {“smallUrl”:”https:\/\/www.wikihow.com\/images\/thumb\/7\/71\/Shine-As-a-Teen-Girl-Step-9-Version-2.jpg\/v4-460px-Shine-As-a-Teen-Girl-Step-9-Version-2.jpg”,”bigUrl”:”\/images\/thumb\/7\/71\/Shine-As-a-Teen-Girl-Step-9-Version-2.jpg\/aid250274-v4-728px-Shine-As-a-Teen-Girl-Step-9-Version-2.jpg”,”smallWidth”:460,”smallHeight”:345,”bigWidth”:728,”bigHeight”:546,”licensing”:”<div class=\”mw-parser-output\”><p>License: <a target=\”_blank\” rel=\”nofollow noreferrer noopener\” class=\”external text\” href=\”https:\/\/creativecommons.org\/licenses\/by-nc-sa\/3.0\/\”>Creative Commons<\/a><br>\n<\/p><p><br \/>\n<\/p><\/div>”} 9 Get involved in sports or school activities. Sports are a great way to meet people and make new friends. They also help you stay in shape and learn new skills. Discipline is something else you learn in sport, which makes you a good leader and liked by other teen girls.
  10. {“smallUrl”:”https:\/\/www.wikihow.com\/images\/thumb\/2\/21\/Shine-As-a-Teen-Girl-Step-10-Version-2.jpg\/v4-460px-Shine-As-a-Teen-Girl-Step-10-Version-2.jpg”,”bigUrl”:”\/images\/thumb\/2\/21\/Shine-As-a-Teen-Girl-Step-10-Version-2.jpg\/aid250274-v4-728px-Shine-As-a-Teen-Girl-Step-10-Version-2.jpg”,”smallWidth”:460,”smallHeight”:345,”bigWidth”:728,”bigHeight”:546,”licensing”:”<div class=\”mw-parser-output\”><p>License: <a target=\”_blank\” rel=\”nofollow noreferrer noopener\” class=\”external text\” href=\”https:\/\/creativecommons.org\/licenses\/by-nc-sa\/3.0\/\”>Creative Commons<\/a><br>\n<\/p><p><br \/>\n<\/p><\/div>”} 10 Be yourself . It’s tempting to try to dress or act like someone else as a teen girl to get attention, but whenever you try to imitate someone else you always end up second. No one can do you better than you. Besides, people can tell when you’re being fake. Advertisement
