Swag Inspired by What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction
What is True Beauty?
According to the New Fab Five, a girl's fresh attitude of modesty makes her beautiful. Rather than vain preoccupation with one's appearance, a boy looks for someone who is genuinely happy in their own skin and maybe even oblivious to her own appearance. For a tween, going sans makeup can go a long way to appearing natural and happy, and not overly concerned with how she looks to others.
Skin Care and Inner Care for the Tween Girl
What Makes You Beautiful?
Clear skin. An inner glow. A winsome smile. An attitude of optimism. These are the things that a boy looks for, at least if you believe the lyrics of "What Makes You Beautiful" as sung by One Direction. If you are depressed, it's going to show in the dim light of your eyes. Try finding a new hobby, an exercise routine, a favorite author or confide in a friend or parent. You should be happy...you have the whole world in front of you! Get up every day and wash your face, brush your teeth, and dare to dream. If you don't get what you want, CHANGE what you want. Don't forget to think about a power greater than yourself...you have value as a daughter of God. When you achieve this inner peace and happiness, you will BE beautiful, no matter what!
What about that skin? What is the best skin care for a young girl? Believe it or not, you don't really need fancy lotions and potions for your skin. Try a gentle soap before you try anything else. Neutrogena makes a really gentle facial soap, but you can use any store brand that has equivalent ingredients. Another fact about face washing; don't overdo it! Excessive face washing can actually dry out your skin, throw your skin's oil production into overdrive, and make breakouts worse! A gentle cleanse once in the morning and once before bed will be plenty.

Have You Seen the New Movie?
Are They Cuter Than Ever?
One Direction is like the second wave British invasion!
Girls everywhere love to hear them sing in dulcet tones about the beauty of their girlfriend's eyes or body. Have you ever listened to their songs and wanted to be a better you?
You can share your inner beauty with just a little confidence and a lot of fun!
First, practice smiling in the mirror. Guess what...it doesn't matter if your teeth are crooked! When you unleash that big smile on people, they see your whole happy face; they're not focusing on that one tooth that doesn't go in the right direction. And if you have a kind word for them right after you smile, they will be thinking how nice you are and won't have time to be critical of your appearance.
Second, make sure your hygiene is at its best. Girls as young as 12 may need to start using deodorant and showering every other day. If you don't have time for a shower, brush your hair out several times and put it up in a bun or ponytail, and wash your face. Remember that a smile is the best makeup! So brush and floss regularly too.
Third, if you're allowed to wear makeup, less is best. A thin layer of gloss will bring out your smile, and one swipe of a brown mascara will look really natural on your eyes. If you have an eyebrow comb, (those are cute!) you can smooth out your brows as well.
Now you're ready to go to the One Direction movie and feel as beautiful as they make you feel when they sing!
I want to hear what it is about you that makes you beautiful! Is it your great attitude? Your smile? Don't be shy!
