Hey girl, I would check out this article:   

http://www.girlslife.com/post/2010/02/01/skin-pimples-blackheads.aspx.  It helped me soo much when I was having break-out problems!  The products it suggests (a salicylic acid wash and benzoyl peroxide cream) can be found for really cheap at any drugstore.  xoxo

MOD MOD MOD how can i get rid of oily skin?i think its because of my bangs. shiould i pin them back 4 a while? i also got facewash 4 oilyskin




Hey girl, use a Facewash that says "Oil free" on the front. Neutrogena and Clean and Clear have great face washes.  Also-that is a great idea to pin your bangs back.  That will prevent breakouts from oil caused by your hair follicles.

My, skin is dry, and i mean REALLY dry. I have eczema on my legs and i don't feel comfortable. I was thinking of using a liquid foundation to cover it up so then i could wear shorts. also my face is really dry unlike other people's skin and it's just getting worse. I DON'T KOW WHAT TO DO!!!! (sorry, got a little dramatic there haha). anyways, any tips? much appreciated thx bye




I would suggest seeing a dermatologist. They are the pros when it comes to dry skin.  So, they probably will have a solution! You shouldn't feel comfortable in shorts, so ask your mom to set up an appointment!

help please???
my clearasil is failing, mainly because I dont use it regularly.... D:
what do I do??? I DONT WANT TO BE PIMPLY AT THE MALL!!! haha
thanks Smile

 

Hey girl,

First of all I would use your Clearasil regularly and see if that helps.You need to wash your face twice a day, every day (once in the morning and once at night.) You could also go to the store and see if you can get a spot treatment or Stridex pads. If you're still having probs, see a dermatologist and see if they can help you out.

MOD MOD MOD!! mod MOD MOD!SmileHELP!
Im only ten and i am already getting zits and pimples my skin care routine is :
day 1 out of 3:
scrub then put moisturizer before bed
day 2 out 3:
apply a facial cleanser then apply a toner and moisturize
day3 out of 3:
dont apply any chemicals or products except water until the next day .
i do this over and over again.
Am i doing anything wrong??
HELP!

 

Hey girl, the way to get acne is to treat it based on your individual skin type. Everyone has different skin, and different skin-types need to be treated on an individual case basis.  If you have combination or oily skin, the moisturizer could potentially lead to more break ups.  Go for an "Oil-free" moisturizer instead.  Usually dry skin needs a little more moisture. Try a moisturizer that is strong but designed for sensitive skin/prone to break outs.  For most skin types washing your face with an acne fighting cleanser before bed, then dotting the individual zits with Benzyl Peroxide usually does the trick to minimize pimples.  If you're drying up and peeling, use moisturizer in the morning.  If you can't seem to clear them on your own, a dermatologist can prescribe something to stronger to kick your zits to the curb for good.

I have them on my forehead (which I know is common) I also have them on my nose, chin, below my nose (my upper lip) and also sometimes on my cheeks. I do everything I can to get rid of it...I use oil free face wash twice a day and acne pads twice a day. The acne pads are really strong btw. It seems to be getting a little bit better but I just can't stand it anymore! What are some things like home remidies I can do at home? How long should this last? May I add that I'm 12.

MOD I always hear about people using eyeshadow as an eyeliner, but I don't understand how you do that. If you used the eyeshadow wand, it would be a really wide line. Explain? Thanks!

 

Hey girl!  You're right - the eyeshadow wand is often too wide.  First, you need a thinner brush (an eyeliner brush is usually very small and slanted, with hairs more like a blush brush).  Another trick that can be helpful is wetting the brush before you swipe it in the shadow, so it's easier to get a more definite line.

MOD MOD MOD How can you get rid of or cover up dark circles under your eyes???? Thanks C=

 

Hey chica! Check out these tips Smile
 


1) Use thinly sliced cucumber strips. This is a very popular as well as an easy way to cure bags under your eyes.

 









2) Identify allergens. Allergies may be the most common cause of skin discoloration under the eyes. If allergies are the root of your problem, you simply need to treat them, or remove the allergen (i.e., the thing to which you are allergic). Seasonal allergy problems such as the hay fever can frequently be effectively treated with over-the-counter and prescription medications. For other allergies the best course of action is usually avoidance. If your dark circles or puffiness are constant, you may have an undetected food allergy or an allergy to a chemical in your home or workplace. Talk to a dermatologist for help determining what you may be allergic to. People with allergies also tend again to be deficient in B6, folic acid and B12 on occasion. Taking a multivitamin, if you don't already, may help with your allergies as well as black circles.A common allergy that causes dark circles is gluten. This is mainly an allergy to wheat flour. More severely, you could have Celiac disease. To test for Celiac, you can get blood tests by your doctor. It's important to remember, however, that you can be allergic to gluten, and not have Celiac.

 









3)
Get plenty of sleep nightly. Sleep is the number one thing to do! It’s not entirely clear why inadequate sleep results in dark circles under the eyes, but we’ve all seen it happen either to ourselves or someone we know. For one thing, lack of sleep tends to cause the skin to become paler (thus increasing the appearance of darkness under the eyes), and it reduces circulation. It’s also believed that too little time lying down is a cause in itself. Determine how much sleep you need (it’s usually 7-9 hours per night, but varies for different people at different times throughout their lives) and try to get that amount regularly for a couple of weeks to see if that helps. Remember that alcohol and drugs can adversely affect the quality of your sleep; abstain from these products or use only in moderation for best results. A lack of sleep, coupled with poor vitamin absorption also tends to reduce adrenal function. The less adrenal function you have the less B6 you tend to absorb, the less B6 you absorb, the less well your adrenal glands work and alas you end up in a vicious circle. Sleep, regular vitamins for those that need them, and good calcium/magnesium support in the form of eating a lot of greens (which are higher in calcium and magnesium than dairy products) or good mineral supplement restores adrenal function. So if you want to break the cycle and the black circles under your eyes, you've got to reduce your stress, sleep more and take the proper vitamins and minerals to support the adrenal function in general.



4) Treat your skin while you sleep. There are overnight facial masques available that may help reduce the appearance of puffiness or discoloration, but you can also make your own. Just before you go to bed, take a washcloth and wet it just a bit with cold water. Then squeeze out any excess water and place it over your eyes as you sleep. Treating your skin may help, but the real problem may also be that you have a poor vitamin and mineral absorption problem that must also be corrected. Seeing a naturopathic physician may help for those people who suffer other ailments such as miscellaneous aches and pains that come and go and a general run down feeling.



5) Apply cool tea bags, an ice cube wrapped in soft cloth, or cucumber slices to your eyes daily. The tannin in tea bags has been shown to reduce swelling and discoloration, and cucumber slices have long been used to reduce puffiness and refresh the appearance of skin around the eyes. Lie down, preferably in the morning, and leave fresh cucumber slices or cool, damp caffeinated tea bags (you can refrigerate them overnight so they’ll be ready) over your eyes for about 10-15 minutes. Keep your eyes closed.



6) Apply an eye cream containing vitamin K and retinol. Dark circles may be caused by a deficiency of vitamin K. Regardless of the cause, however, recent research has shown that skin creams containing these two ingredients reduce puffiness and discoloration significantly in many patients. Long-term daily use seems to have the greatest effect.



7) Avoid rubbing your eyes. Usually rubbing of the eyes is brought on by allergies, but not always. Regardless of the reason, stop doing it. The rubbing irritates the skin and can break tiny capillaries beneath the skin, causing both puffiness and discoloration.



8)
Eat a healthy, balanced diet, take vitamins, and drink plenty of water. A whole host of cosmetic problems can be attributed to vitamin deficiencies. Dark circles and puffiness are often attributed to lack of vitamin K or inadequate antioxidants. Also, a deficiency in B12 (usually anemia-related) can result in dark circles. Be sure to get plenty of fruits and vegetables—especially cabbage, spinach, and other leafy green vegetables—and take a daily vitamin supplement if necessary. Get adequate fluids to improve circulation.



9)
Reduce salt intake. Excess salt causes the body to retain water in unusual places, and this can result in puffiness under the eyes. Too much salt can also impair your circulation, and cause the blood vessels under the skin to appear bluer.



10)Cover the area up with cosmetics. Try to use an undereye cream. If all else fails, use a concealer which will camouflage the darkness under your eyes. The makeup will help cancel out the undereye circles. Be sure to use a concealer that matches your under tone (i.e. yellow, peach, tan, light brown, etc.) After applying, set the concealer with a light dusting of translucent powder.



11) Establish whether or not this condition runs in your family. Dark circles are believed to frequently be hereditary. This doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about the conditions, but you should be prepared for minimal success actually trying to get rid of them.

Hello there C! First of all, are you getting enough sleep? Make sure that you're getting at least 8 hours each night. If you are sleeping enough and still have undereye circles (which many people still have, unfortunately), try these tips to reduce their appearance Smile

The prib is my bff lyks one of the guys tat was there but he lykd my friend. and we were basically dbl dating but i told my bff that he didnt rly lyk her.. and my bff was all mad that he didnt lyk her. and she was mad at me bcuz i " didnt tell the guys that i didnt want to hang out" what do i tell her.. bcuz i want her to stop telling me what to do and i wanna let her know more gently that the guy didnt like her. and she needs to know that i want to keep hanging out with the guys!




Hey babe, I'm not sure I understand your comment.  At the beginning you said that the guy she likes also likes her, but later you said he didn't, so I'm not sure which is true.  I also don't really understand what you're saying your bff is mad about.  But if she is bossing you around or being pushy, you need to stand up to her and let her know what's REALLY going on.

Try bringing the article to a makeup store like Ulta or Sephora, or to a drugstore like Walgreens. Ask them if they have any comparable products to the ones you're interested in - I'm sure they'll be able to recommend some products that will help for a slightly cheaper price Smile

Hey! Use an oil-free scrub every night before bed, and possibly a drying acne cream if your skin is super oily. Oil causes blackheads. Good luck!

Hey girl, I would go to the store and look for face washes or creams you can use to get rid of them. Make sure you're washing your face daily, also. If you give that a few weeks and don't see a difference, then go to a dermatologist and see what he or she can recommend.

Hey babe! If your acne is causing you a lot of stress and trouble, the best thing to do is to see a dermatologist, and he or she can prescribe you something strong to get rid of your acne once and for all! If you think it's a seasonal thing, try not to touch your face as much and use a towel to wipe the sweat off your face instead.  Also, try washing your make-up brushes, which can contain a lot of bacteria and cause breakouts.  If you're looking for a cleanser to clear acne, I suggest Clean and Clear or Neutrogena (oil free) products!

How do I get rid of a under the skin zit? I have one on my nose and it hurts if i touch my nose. I've been putting hot cloths on it, I've been putting honey and lemon juice on it cuz I heard that they helped with acne and I've put ice on it for the last 2 days. But when will it go away?

 

Hey girl, it should go away in a couple days. Just give it some time and use something like toothpaste on it overnight to dry it out.

No offence but I don't really like the new layout of the site... Too confusing... It's nice and all, but I have no Idea where to go to find the articles I want and stuff as easily as I used to...




I know- it's going to take some getting used to! Give it a try for a while, most of the stuff is in a similar spot where it used to be!

my face rarely breakks out, but here lately i have this really bad problem area that doesn't seem to want to go away, what can i do?




Make sure you wash your face twice a day- once in the morning, and once in the evening before bed.  If that doesn't really help, maybe pick something up from a local drug store! I'm sure it will clear up in no time!

Hey! ok, so whenever im on my period my face breaks out like on my forehead and stuff. most of my friends have their periods too and that doesn't happen to them. is something wrong with me?!?! thanks in advanced!!

Every girl has a little bit different hormone levels, and it's perfectly normal to break out while you're having your period, and also normal not to. Nothing's wrong with you! Just be sure to wash your face daily.

Hey girl, if you have naturally oily skin, try going to the drugstore and getting oil-free slips, they're little slips (similar to paper) designed to lessen excess oil on our faces.

Ok so I was just wondering I've always felt kind of fat compared to my friends most of them are under 100 pounds and the one girl that is pretty much my exact height maybe a little shorter but barely says she is 100 pounds and I could believe it she's beautifully skinny. Ok so anyways what I am wondering is I'm 13 and I'm122 pounds and I'm 5'6". I don't eat as healthy as I could but I'm not like a junk food maniac or anything. I've been trying to drink WAYYYY less soda for the month of july and all together I've only drank like 2 glasses worth, and I've also been doing softball since May, which will end on the last days of July. Anyways my point is do you think I could bear to lose a few pounds? In my opinion I think I could but I'm not sure. I guess I just fell like I could becasue for some reason my friends talk about weight a lot and I always have to lie and say I'm 110 pounds cause I feel really embarrassed about it. Sorry for the Length! Smile
~Maddie




Hey girlie, I think you should focus on how you feel rather than the number you see on the scale. Everyone has a different weight at which they are healthiest, so it's pretty pointless to compare yourself to your friends! If you feel good, and you're exercising and eating healthy, you're fine!

Hey MOD!!
I posted another question and you answered it so thanks btw. Im going away for a week and a half, I was wondering what some good hairstyles would be. Especially because I will be either washing it at night and having it wake up crinkly or going out with it wet. Do you have tips for styles ro avoid the crinkles or things with the wet hair. I basically need some good traveling hairstyles. I have fairly long blonde hair with brown underneath.
Thanks!

 

Maybe you could sleep with your hair in a ponytail so that it doesn't move much during the night. Then, when you get up, you could do a half-up do, or a messy bun... or a plain ponytail! There are lots of simple but cute hairstyles. Try a side pony or braids for a day out, too.

Thanks for posting this article, but I still have actually 3 questions. I have slightly oily moderately acne prone skin. For some reason lately I've been breaking out more than normal. On the tops pf my checks, my chin ,forehead and my nose which I never get acne on! I'm going on a vacay far away for about a week and a half. This means lots of picture taking and me with acne! I was wondering if you had any tips for helping clear my skin up while Im there and when I come back home? Btw I also use proactiv morning and night.
Second Question. should I use a mask, or will that break me out by bringing dirt to the surface?
And last question. What makeup should I bring on my trip to Europe?
Thankyou soo much for hopefully answering, you guys are so helpful!

 

Hey girl,

The best thing to do here is to ask a doctor or dermatologist about what you should use. Just make sure you clean and moisturize your skin once or twice a day since you'll be using lots of sunscreen and clogging up those pores!  A gentle cleanser for combination skin could definitely help you, but you should make sure it won't dry your skin out while also using Proactiv. Same goes for the mask - masks tend to really dry out skin, so you might want to avoid that for now.


 

For your last question, try to stick to the basics. What are your must-have items?  For me it would be concealer and powder, eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss. But you might wanna throw in some eyeshadow and different lip colors to vary things up.  And make sure you pack it in your checked bag, NOT your carry-on, since airlines have strict rules on how much liquid you can bring on the plane.

I have an olive skin tone which is nice most of the time. But, I have a lot of little freckles/ black heads on my nose. I have had two different SMALL white heads on my nose but now they have turned into, like, craters in my nose which gets super annoying!! The pores on my nose are also pretty big!!! I sometimes get a breakout with a few pimples on my forehead, but not too bad. My dad struggled a lot with bad acne in his teenage years, and I don't want to follow in his footsteps! Any ideas? Please help!! Thanks!




Hey girl, get a good skin regime down that works for your skin type. If you have oily skin stay away from oily and perfumed products, stuff like that. Talk to your mom if you have questions about how to keep your face clear, but washing your face at night, using a light moisturizer, and treating your breakouts will help.

Hey chica! Unfortunately losing weight fast isn't always so healthy. It's best to change your lifestyle, rather than going on a "diet." Try getting more physical activity every day by walking more, and sitting in front of the tv or computer less. Do a workout video, or get outside and enjoy the nice weather. And eat as many fruits and veggies as you can! Smile

Hey girlie,

The best way to make him think you're cute is to dress in a way that lets you have FUN all day Smile  Go with a pair of jean shorts, a pair of comfy flats, and a top that is a little girly but also totally comfy if you're running around and playing.  Do you have any tank tops in a floral pattern?  Or what about a shirt in a bold color for a bit of sass?  What's most important is that you wear something that makes YOU feel great.  Chances are that he will be more focused on your face and your attitude than the clothes that you're wearing, so as long as they make you feel confident, it's a perfect outfit Smile

i just got a deep conditioner (Garnier Fruitcess Sleek and Shine) how often do i use it?? thnx!!!

 

Deep conditioners are different than regular conditioners because they actually penetrate the cuticle inside the hair shaft for a "deeper" condition {get it?}. For that reason, you shouldn't use deep conditioners as often as normal ones - anywhere from once a week to twice a month {once every other week} will do the trick.

Hey girl,

What about highlights?  Research them online - the pros and the cons - and ask mom if that could be a compromise between dyeing and it leaving it dirty blonde.  They really do give you a completely different look!  Present all the facts to her and see what she says. If she still says no, try spending some time out in the sun {with sunglasses and sunblock of course} to try to bring out your hair's natural highlights.  Don't spend TOO much time outside because you might not have that many natural highlights to enhance, but that's the only other thing I can think of.  There are lots of rumors about things to put in your hair to make it blonder {like lemon juice}, but none of them are 100% reliable.

in april i had cramps and spotting but i never had my period. that happened to my friend to. is there something wrong?

 

Hey chickie,

Periods tend to be irregular, especially when they first start.  I would think that, since you've experienced spotting and cramps, you should get a full-on period within the next couple months - but it's totally fine that it didn't come in April or May because it takes time for them to happen monthly and to last for the same amount of time each month.  If you're worried though, don't feel uncomfy asking your doc about this.  That's what he/she is there for!  Explain what happened and that you're kinda concerned - they can let you know if it's normal or if there's something else going on.

Hey girlie,

I wouldn't wear a liner in your bathing suit when you're actually going swimming because the point of liners is to absorb moisture... they'll fill up immediately when you jump in the pool!  But it's a good idea to wear it before and after because you don't want leaks in your suit/panties when you aren't in the water Smile

Go for jazzy neutrals, like gold, copper, bronze, peach, and dark green for your eyes.  Your foundation should match your skin and, if you use a blush or bronzer, go for something with the same shimmery-neutral feel as your eyeshadow {like a gold or warm sunny bronze}.  Keep your lips subtle with a nude lip gloss - play up those beautiful eyes!

1) can you post an article with more street styles? thats my style and you have a lot of girly stuff but not a lot of street. 2) i want to get my mom to let me double pierce my ears, but she doesn't like the idea;she says she doesn't like the look of it. what can i do to change her mnd about it? and 3) do you have any ideas for hairstyles for girls with thin hair? i'm getting my hair cut soon and there isn't much i can do with it (right now it's about shoulder length) at the moment
thanks!!!! -kacey-

 

1. Thanks for the suggestion, girlie!  We love hearing from you guys because you're the ones we write all the articles for - we'll definitely keep it in mind!  


 

2. This one is ultimately mom's decision, so remember that first and foremost.  Think about why you want to get the second piercing - what is the real reason you want it?  Why will it make you feel better?  Will you be able to keep up with the maintenance? {changing it, cleaning it, etc.} Having clear, real answers to these questions might help swap mom's decision.  And promising her that you won't take it to extremes - that you'll only use subtle earrings, maybe - might help!


 

3. I have thin hair too and I always get lots of layers cut into my hair.  It gives it shape and volume, which is key since I don't really have much of that on my own!

thanks! Do you still think I should wear spandex, just in case that way it won't leak and it will keep the pad in place??

 

If it makes you feel more comfy, go for it!  Remember though that the spandex might keep the pad in place but, if it takes on water from the fight, it probably won't prevent you from leaking either.  Wear whatever will keep you feeling most confident.  Either way, I'd probably bring a change of underwear just in case so I'd feel prepared for anything Smile

I like the last thing by Mark since its affordable...the other stuff is pricey! I know you are getting your money's worth but are there any affordable products (not all drugstore tho) that can help against acne and oil?? Also, another thing, I wash my face twice a day (I use St. Ives in the morning and another lesser-known organic one at night...then i apply a spot treatment.) Is this a good routine for me? BTW, I exfoliate twice a week since my skin is really oily. ALSO, what is a good, affordable spot treatment that has benzoyl and stuff in it? THANKS YOU MUCH! YOU'RE A LIFE SAVER!! ♥

 

Hey girlie,

As for the more technical questions {about your beauty routine and all}, you should definitely ask a doctor or a dermatologist. Every girl's skin is different so they'll be able to make suggestions based on your specific skin strengths/weaknesses...which is awesome because it's so personal!  For the spot treatment you want, I would try PanOxyl Acne Spot Treatment. It's like $6 on Amazon!  And I'll pass along your request for general beauty products that are more affordable.  Keep checking this area for new beauty stories all the time!  But definitely don't assume that a pricey product is automatically over-priced - like you said, you often get your money's worth with a product that is better for your skin than the cheapies!

okay so today I am going to a BBQ. There is gonna be a water fight. The only problem is that I just started my period. I'm really not ready to try using a tampon. Do you think wearing a absorbant pad and then wearing spandex under my shorts will be okay to wear instead of a tampon. Cause we are not going in a pool just a water fight. So what do you think?
Thanks

 

Hey girl,

Yeah, you should be fine wearing a pad if you're just having a fight with water guns/balloons!  You might get wet but it won't last too long, so just make sure you have an extra pad and you change it right away once the fight is over.  That's if you even get wet around that area - if you get squirted from your waist up, you won't even have to worry at all Smile

Mod,
In January, I went out with a boy who had been my very best friend for almost a year. He ended it in two weeks, and we havent talked since. I've tried texting him, but he wont reply. I miss him a lot, as a friend. How can I fix things between us? Or should i just let him go? Also, I have a new really great guy best friend, but I think we both have stronger feelings, but I cant lose him like I did the other. What should I do?




Hey girl, I think you should give it some time then talk to him again and try to work things out. You should be able to be friends again! But if he's not responsive, it might be time to let him go. -- Just take things slow with your new best guy friend, and you should be fine! =]

Ok so, I wash my face twice a day, everyday, when I wake up and before bed. Every day at school, during first period (90 min.) my skin starts to get SUPER oily and shiny. I have to bring those oil absorbing sheets to school and tons of nose power for my shiny nose, which i have to use a ton. (Luckily i never get zits). So, i noticed that on weekends when im with friends or relaxing, my skin is PERFECT. Not oily, not shiny. And now that its summer, its even more perfect. So, how come at school its so oily and shiny?




Hey girl, its a seasonal thing. The more time you spend in the sunlight and the ocean and pool water, it actually helps your skin A LOT, which is why my skin looks 20 times better now then it usually does in the winter.

A few questions...
1. I'm really organized at school but really messy at my house. My mom always complains when I leave my dishes out, and my room looks like a tornado hit it. I'm always making these plans to get organized so I take out everything to put it back neater, but then I get bored and just leave it there!
Wow, that was long. I may have to post my other questions on a different comment. Thanks for your advice!




Hey girl, haha! I do the same exact thing at my house. If you try doing that the same way, then you should take less junk out, so you make sure you put it all back in. It will take more time, but then youll be less likely to leave it out! =]

1.What are some ways that I can really push myself to lose weight? I justcan't seem to be able to find the will!
2.Is it true that water keeps your skin healthy-looking and clear?




Hey girlie, water is definitely apart of being healthy and that definitely reflects in your skin. If you looking for motivation to stay healthy. Being healthy will give you added energy, longer life, you'll look radiant and you'll feel radiant. Don't think about loosing weight as much as being healthy. Visit your local doctor to find out what that means for you, your body type, and your lifestyle.

 So it was pretty good.
BUT THEN
One of his friends {steven} (that i'm kinda friend-enimies w/) came up to me when there was like 5 days left of school and said, "Hey u know Micheal?" and i was like, "Ummm ya, wat about him?" and he was like, "He likes u" then they kept on saying thing like that and i basically ignored them. But then i wuld try to talk to him in class like we used to but he wuldn't. Like one day he was talking to bridget, so i started to talk to bridget then he got up and walked away. My friend said that it was probaly cause he was embarressed. 




Hey girlie, I had to trim your message down a little but I read all of it. I think you should definitely talk to him about because you don't even know if steven was telling the truth and if they lied to your gf or what? go to him and say that your confused and you want to just put everything on the table so you guys can be on the same page in not in this confused awkward limbo where you guys are now.

This may not work as good on oily skin (since it's oil based and almost everything in it is oil) but I LOVE the Burt's Bees products. I use the Orange Essence Facial Cleanser every morning and night, along with the herbal blemish stick, and the Peach & Willowbark deep pore scrub once a week (be extremely gentle with the scrub!). Ever since I've been using it (2 months) my face full of acne has cleared up so much!

Hey girlie, that is horrible no one should ever endure that kind of treatment. I know it's hard but you have to try and find the strength to ignore those kind of ignorant, rude, and superficial comments. You are a million times more beautiful than any of those people can ever be in their whole entire lifetime !!! Because you are a good person. Those mean comments are ugly and insecure and that's what kind of people say those things. The best way to get back at them is to not let what they say effect you.

Also, what kind of tampons do you think are the best? I hate feeling like i'm bleeding through a tampon at the pool. (yes, it's happened before)




Hey girlie, there are a lot of crunches including side crunches, front crunches, bicycle, full V crunches, as well as planks. The key is doing a number of set and reps and steadily increasing them. and make sure you get the right tampon for your flow like light medium or super.

So how can I go back to feeling and looking 13? Thanks




Hey girlie, maybe you should give yourself a break stop wearing just relax a vacation will be the best time to relax and rejuvenate, where you can have fun and forget about the year. You might want to see a dermatologist about your skin since it's highly sensitive right now.

I wash my face every night before bed and every morning when I wake up. Is that too much washing?
Also, recently I've been getting these big pimples, (bigger than the ones I usually get), and they are pretty red so they're really noticeable. I wash my face every night and every morning, and use acne cream whenever I get a pimple. I'm not allowed to use makeup, so there's no way to cover it up. Should I try a different face wash? And do you know any that work really well (and are cheap)? And I recently saw on TV a Commercial for Clean & Clear face wash and stuff, do you think it works? Thanks!




Hey girlie, does your face feel really dry after your wash and through out the day in the morning. That is one sign that you could be drying out your skin or over washing. You have to figure out what skin type you have and then pick what cleanser can best meet your needs to moisturize, exfoliate, etc.. I think you should try a few products and experience which one is best for you. Trial and error has worked for me everyone's skin is different therefore everyone can have different results.

Hey girlie, you should def. trade out unhealthy food for healthy one's you'll be surprised at how much this helps with energy and overall health. Frequent activity is a good way to stay fit and healthy you are on the right track to meeting your health goals. Why don't you try to include your mom and what your doing ask her opinion. Maybe if you included her in on what your doing she might feel comfortable enough to leave you be.

I really, really, REALLY wanted to visit my friend that lives in Washington state. well my parents don't want to pay for the ticket. so I decided to pay for it by saving money. a ticket costs around 375, and I only have 55 dollars. and I probably need enough money for the ticket by july 16 at the most, fairly soon. so I guess what I'm asking is for tips on what to do, and tips on how to make lots of money fast??? thanks a bunch I really appreciate it I really want to see my friend this summer.

 

Hey girlie, babysit for as many families as you can as often as you can to get cash quickly. Since you need it so fast it might be best to ask your parents to loan you the money and promise that you'll pay them back as soon as you can.

Hey girlie, work out this summer and gain as much muscle as you can. There's no harm in trying out. If you decide it'll be too tough with all of the boys then you can stop, but if you don't try out you might regret it later.

Hey girlie, right when you get it there shouldn't be enough for it to be especially obvious. I'm sure you'll have some kind of bag with you at the water that has a towel or whatever else you need. Keep a tampon in the bag and if you think it's an issue ask to go to the bathroom.

Mod- it wasn't THAT bad.....well, it wasn't my smartest move I've made. I sent him a picture of me in my bikini top and some shorts on. My mom said that was a form of sexting and she got really mad at me. Her and my dad. Frown but I'm likely never gonna see him again and I think it would be okay if I text him for the rest of the summer. It's only a few weeks.... I don't see what's wrong with texting him for a couple of weeks and then just maybe forgetting about him for the rest of my life. Cause I know I'm gonna meet new guys in high school and this guy will be in my past. But my Mom's also dead set on me never speaking to this guy again.... So... Thanks. Smile I don't know if this makes any difference.. Smile

 

It doesn't make too much difference but that's definitely not as awful as you made it sound before. I don't know your mom so I don't know how she'll react, but I still don't think there's any harm in asking.

1.) All my friends are going on vacation! I already went on a Disney Cruise, and then we went to Disney World with my family. It was super fun, but since we spent a lot of money on that, we can't afford going anywhere else. But anyway, my friends are leaving! My BFF is going on vacation with my other friend. I feel left out now, and I'm so lonely!  What are some fun things I can do solo or at least with my fam?
2.) I feel pathetic! I'm going into 6th grade, and I'm STILL not allowed to sleepover! I don't even have my ears pierced (I can wait a few more months for that one, but still!!!) I tried telling them I'm responsible, and I do my chores without them asking and they noticed. I want to sleepover, but I guess my parents are just being a little (more like a lot) overprotective! my brothers got to sleepover in 3rd grade, and I'm going into 6th grade! My mom said she wouldn't let me sleepover until JUNIOR HIGH OR HIGH SCHOOL! I feel like a pathetic little baby with unfair parents. What should I do?
THANKS MODS!

 

Hey girlie, Junior High is middle school so if 6th grade is middle school for you then you don't have much longer to wait. Tell her that your friends ask and you want to be able to. Ask why your brothers were allowed to so much earlier.

Hey girlie, don't be worried about it, just be ready. Keep a pad in your purse when you go out so you're always prepared.

um do you know any snacks or food that is healthy but tasty to get a toned tummy?

 

Hey girlie, fruit is always good and anything that comes in 100 calorie pack would be great too.

MOD- something happened recently with a guy that was sorta bad, but it could have been worse... my mom found out and is super mad! she won't let me talk to this guy ever again! he's no longer allowed to be in my life and i'm not allowed to be in his. Frown it's really sad because we used to like each other a lot and i thought he was starting to like me again. but now i can't ever see him again... Frown i miss him so much and i know he misses me cause one of my friends forwarded a text from him to me. i was wondering if you think i could talk to my mom about letting me text him for the rest of the summer. he's not going to my high school and chances are, i'll forget about him. i know i messed up, but i learned my lesson! really! i was so stupid! do you think i could convince her to let me text him for the rest of the summer? thanks. Smile

 

 Hey girlie, if it was that bad then her answer will probably be no, but it's still worth a shot. Try asking and see what happens.

Im going camping tomorrow with my friend and her family. We're going in a camper, we're in the tent though, with no electricity out there or indoor plumbing, except for in the camper where you can only go #1. Sounds like fun I know! Only thing isss, I have my period! What should I do?? I use tampons already, but what should i doo??

 

Hey girlie, you'll just have to discreetly put your tampons with the rest of the trash after you change them.

MOD,
This is regarding the Standing Ovation competition's youtube page. I think that GL should change their settings on that youtube channel so no one is able to comment on the videos because I was watching them and in the comments people are swearing and totally bashing on all of these girls who entered. I know that we aren't supposed to submit our own links on here because the MODs are supposed to know what's on the page that we're linking to so this should be no different because people have abused this competition through their comments.

Thanks,
Ash

Mod!
I wash my face every night before bed and every morning when I wake up. Is that too much washing? Also, even though I wash every morning and night, and use zit cream (Target brand, that's what my mom buys), I still have at least three really red (and pretty big) pimples on my face everyday. I'm not allowed to use makeup, so there's no way to cover it up either. Is there any other way to keep my skin clear? Like a certain brand that works? (A cheap brand?) And I recently saw on TV a Commercial for Clean & Clear face wash and stuff, do yuo think it works?

 

Hey girlie, it sounds like you're doing everything you can. Ask your mom to take you to a dermatologist who can help you get rid of it.

**MOD***
This schoolyear coming up I'm going to be a sophomore and I got into a really good private school. I want to take really neat and organized notes in class, but I feel like my handwriting is sloppy. Do you think there's any way I can improve my handwriting, or will I just have to live with it being messy forever?

 

Hey girlie, you can practice your writing this summer and try to make it neater, but as long as you can read your notes they can still be neat and organized for you.
