The 411 on Moisturizers

It's important to moisturize your face and bod during the winter or else you'll be left with dry, chapped, flaky skin.

Facial Moisturizers

  • L'Oreal Hydra Fresh Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($9.11 US) is specially made for young skin. It has a cool citrus scent that leaves you feeling and looking fresh-faced.
  • Neutrogena Healthy Defense SPF 30 Daily Moisturizer ($11.65 US) offers great protection from the sun's damaging rays. Plus, it's great for your face cuz it's not greasy, non-comedogenic (won't clog your pores) and keeps your skin hydrated all day long!

Body Lotions

  • Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion ($9.99 US) smoothes away bumps and rough patches, and reduces redness, so it'll work wonders on your elbows and knees.
  • Once you get over the yummy scent, slick on Body Shop's Cranberry Body Butter ($12 US). It's a great moisturizer that leaves you smelling absolutely delicious.

Hand And Foot Creams

  • The Body Shop's Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment ($12 US) glides on and instantly sinks into your skin. It contains panthenol to strengthen your nails and shea butter to soften your cuticles.
  • The Body Shop's Peppermint Foot Lotion is an all-in-one moisturizer and deodorizer, so it'll come in handy after you finish P.E. class.

How to Avoid Dry Skin

  • Drink at least eight glasses of water a day to keep your skin hydrated.
  • During the winter, take short showers instead of long baths, which can zap your skin of its natural moisture.
  • Try this simple trick for dry hands: before you go to bed, cover your hands with a rich, creamy lotion and then put on a pair of cotton gloves. Leave them on overnight - you'll wake up with super smooth hands!

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
