1Be clean and hygienic. Being clean is all about being fresh and looking your best. If you're clean, you'll look great and feel even better.
Wash every day, preferably have a shower as baths are apparently not as hygienic. If possible, wash in the morning. The shower/bath will wake you up, and there's a chance your body could sweat in the night.
If you have brothers or sisters who take showers in the morning, and there is only one shower, take a shower before you go to bed. If it's hot out, don't sleep with the covers, and sleep with the sheets instead!
Wash your hair every other day or as often as it needs to look good. Washing it too often may strip natural oils, cause frizziness and make it more greasy. You can also try using dry shampoo if you think that it will help you look pretty as a pre teen with no make-up.
Find shampoos and conditioners that suit your hair's texture. If you have a dry scalp, you may consider using a dandruff shampoo.
Don't use too much of any product. Too much gel or mousse can result in a really bad hair day.
2 Moisturize your skin. Drink a lot of water and find a moisturizing product that suits your skin. There are different types for different skin types.
If your face is oily, always use moisturizer. It may seem ironic but it's still important. Use one that's meant for someone who has acne or that's designed for oily skin.
If your skin is dry, use a thicker cream based moisturizer. It will help your skin stay moisturized longer.
3Wash your face twice daily, once in the morning and once at night. Washing your face will help wash away dirt and layers of skin cells that build up over the day.
Try to find a face wash that is appropriate for your skin. You probably want a"non-comedogenic"wash, which simply means that it won't clog your pores.
If you're beginning to get pimples, use over the counter acne products. If it's getting worse and you're worried about it, visit your doctor who can prescribe something to help.

Nice smelling soap can give off a perfume scent, as can deodorant.

Try to stay clear of getting more than two colors. Even two colors may look a little too harsh for your face. Choose pastel or neutral colors--they look very pretty on braces.
Stay away from yellow and neon blue. They will make your teeth look yellow, and not white.
