Most teens don’t really need an elaborate beauty regimen though quite a few struggle with acne and other skin conditions thanks to hormonal changes during their adolescent years. Here are a few DIY beauty tips that teens can follow and enhance their natural beauty.
For lush, thick hair
Since teens style their hair often, they are prone to getting frizzy hair and split ends. Natural hair packs are a better option for teen girls’ hair than chemical based solutions. For thick hair, massaging hair with a mixture of olive oil and mustard oil will boost growth and the quality of air. It is essential to wash hair with a gentle shampoo as these oils may not wash off with a single shampoo cycle.
For scar-free, glowing skin
Apart from girls with impeccable skin, most teens tend to experience skin problems like dry patches, acne and post acne scar and even dull skin. A foolproof way to counter all these skin problems in one go is to make a paste of lemon juice, almond oil and egg yolk and apply this pack daily for 20 minutes. This pack will provide the skin with the nourishment it needs and keep it problem free for longer.
To prevent breakouts
While very severe acne usually needs to be treated with pharmaceutical supplements, occasional breakouts can be eliminated by making a mixture of grated onion and vinegar. This pack needs to be applied on the infected part and washed with room temperature tap water. This treatment usually gets rid of acne breakouts in 2-3 treatments.
For longer, thicker eyelashes
Since fake lashes look rather awkward on teen girls, the only way they can get their eyes to look quaint is by using a home remedy to thicken their eyelashes. This treatment requires girls to dab a ball of cotton in olive oil or coconut oil and apply it to the eyelashes every night before bed.
For dandruff free hair
Teens experience dandruff more often than adults and most cases of dandruff leave teens with acne as well. To eliminate dandruff once and for all, you need to make a mixture of coconut oil and lemon juice and massage it into the scalp gentle. Leaving the oil to cure overnight can significantly improve the treatment’s effectiveness. In the morning, the hair pack can be washed off using a mild shampoo.
