Get up before you need to be ready. Stretch your arms, legs and neck.
Get in the shower and wash yourself with a body gel and a body loofah. Follow up with exfoliating and shaving if needed. Shave near the end of the shower, so that the hair has a chance to soften (it'll help with the razor burn and the shave in general).
Wash your hair with a good shampoo suited to your hair. Then use conditioner. Try to leave the conditioner in for 2 minutes.
When you get out of the shower, apply body lotion. Also apply deodorant to give it time to dry before you get dressed.
Wash your face with oil free cleanser suited to your skin type with cool water. Dry with a clean cloth and apply toner with a cotton bud and an oil free moisturizer.
Check your eyebrows. If they have some hairs growing out of place, pluck them.
Now it's time to get dressed. Make sure your outfit is totally you and fashionable! (It would be easier if you lay out your clothes the night before.)
Time for makeup. For teens, concealer to cover blemishes and under eye circles, tinted moisturizer with SPF or powder, curl lashes and apply a coat of clear or black mascara and a slick of lip gloss for a natural look. Don't wear heavy foundation or too much eyeliner or eyeshadow.
Blow dry your hair, then style it. Loose curls for long hair achieved with a good quality curler is suitable for school and also looks gorgeous. If you have a bad hair day, brush it into a ponytail and cover greasy roots with a headband.
After eating breakfast, brush your teeth well and floss. If you are worried about bad breath, use mouthwash. Listerine pocket packs are great for on the go breath fresheners.
Spray a little bit of perfume or body spray. Do not saturate yourself with it otherwise you'll smell too strong.
Eat breakfast! It'll give you the energy you need for the day. A healthy meal would be a glass of milk or orange juice, a bowl of grain cereal or cereal with fruit, a piece of toast and a fresh, nutritious orange.
If you don't like eating in the morning, try to get into the routine of eating your evening meal a few hours earlier and gradually get into the routine of eating breakfast starting with something light like a smoothie and crackers. Breakfast is too important of a meal to skip. It will give you energy throughout the morning and curb your appetite for a large lunch. It also helps with bad breath, because if you don't eat breakfast, 9 times out of 10 your breath is going to stink, so, eat up!
Drink 8 glasses of water. It might sound like a cliché, but it's true! Always carry a water bottle filled with water. It will help you feel energized, keep your voice strong and loud and keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful.
Unless your hair is extremely oily, don't use shampoo every day, use conditioner instead. The shampoo dries your hair out, but conditioner makes your hair soft and pretty.
You don't need makeup all the time.
Remember you are beautiful!
