Beauty advice to teens: Look clean, shower fresh

TROPICAL heat

I have to say I find Aryanna Epperson to be one of the most refreshing girls her age. When I bump into her in the mall she is not wearing anything too short or ripped up, and yet her personal style is far from staid. At formal events she hardly wears makeup when all the other girls her age look like they hired a professional to work on them. In my personal opinion, teens should dress and look like teens, and she hits the mark. I’m not saying they should not try makeup or follow trends, but moderation is something teens have to be guided on.

If I had a girl in her teens, there would be one advice I would give her when it comes to appearance: Look clean, like you just stepped out of a shower. On that note, I would make sure to take her to a salon to get waxed and make sure she has a good dermatologist.

When it comes to beauty products, I would recommend SPF, a lash curler, and probably a lip and cheek tint. Smelling good is a big thing, too, so I will ask her to always use baby cologne. When it comes to hair, I am all for getting highlights and, if she wants to color the tips, purple or blue I would probably agree.

Going back to Aryanna, she just won MTV’s VJ hunt. Get to know her more and hopefully her “freshness” will rub off on teens and us who want to look youthful.
