School's out and you decide to look different when you come back. This article is here to show you how you can look absolutely gorgeous when you come back from your summer vacation.

Admit that you need a change in your body. Women will always compare themselves to one another, especially if they have low self-esteem to begin with. There is nothing wrong with wanting to lose some weight, but becoming obsessed with it is not helpful. What you want to do is join a sport, or just work out. If you want to join a sport, go to a few camps. It's an easy way to get in shape and meet new people. If you want to work out at home, buy a couple work out DVDs/tapes and actually do them. You can even buy a dumbbell set and a strength train if that sounds like a better idea. Cardio is generally the best type of work out to burn fat. Whether you do it at a gym or at home, do 30-45 minutes of cardio a day twice a week and strength train twice a week. Always remember to give yourself one day in between work-outs so that your muscles can rebuild themselves. Go to sleep! Your body needs time to relax and recharge after a harsh day, so you need at least 7 hours of sleep. Aim for 10 hours if you can, but 8 or 9 hours is fine. Do not use tanning beds or lay out in the sun without sunblock, because you will be asking for skin cancer and premature skin aging. Instead, you can use a self-tanner, which is a tan you apply. It lasts for about a week long though, so you might just want to use a gradual tanning lotion. Go to a dermatologist if good skin does not come naturally to you. To keep up what the dermatologist does for you wash your face with a cleanser such as Cetaphil every morning and night. After this, you may want to tone your skin, moisturize, or use an acne treatment. Do not get fake nails because it will wreck your natural nails. Keep your natural nails trimmed and filed, and always keep your cuticles pushed back. Moisturize your hands frequently. If you have ridges, buy a nail buffer and keep them buffed. You may choose to polish your nails, do something that you like, and if you want fake nails, go for it.

Let your hair grow out during the summer. After school gets out, get your hair trimmed and leave it that way. During the summer, experiment with different shampoos till you find the perfect one. Go to your local salon and ask what shampoo they would recommend for your hair. If you really want to change, commit to it. Ask the hair stylist which hair cut would be best for your face (or what would be recommended). If you want to color your hair, do that about a week before school starts. Spend some time working on your wardrobe. You want to get the basics, like a nice pair of dark wash jeans and a nice white t-shirt. Depending on your age, you might want to splurge on investment items, like a nice suit or a little black dress (think Audrey Hepburn a la Breakfast at Tiffany's) and some nice pearls. If you're a teen, just find jeans and a shirt and shop around for what you like. Stay true to what you like but try to be more daring! Look around for things that looks great on you - as a teenager, you can experiment. Get your eyebrows done professionally if they are difficult to manage, then pluck the stray ones yourself. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, just find your brow bone and follow that. You can find YouTube videos on how to pluck your eyebrows.

Do your make-up according to your skin type. If you have dry skin, you will want to stay away from mineralized makeup because it will dry you out. If you have "Normal" skin (a few breakouts break out usually once a month. Or maybe not), you can use basically any drugstore brand and not have it harm your gorgeous amazing skin. Oily skinned people will want to find foundations and powders that are oil free. Splurge on foundation, concealer, and powder because when you have amazing looking skin. It'll make the rest of your makeup look flawless. Everything else - just head to the drugstore unless you have a sensitivity to any product. Brush your teeth twice or three times daily. The night before school: Plan out what you will wear. Pull your hair up, and take a warm bath just washing your body and shaving your legs. Then go to sleep and sleep for about 10 hours. Relax on your first day of school. You have all year to make a good impression.

* Put Vaseline on your eyelashes every night. It can replace mascara.
* Be confident!
* Stand up straight. Posture is a must.
* Wear lip balm like a god. Put it on morning and night, and whenever else necessary. It's recommended to use lip Med ex. It is made by Blistex.
* For under eye bags, cucumbers actually do work. Also, keep some spoons in freezer, and put them under your bags for a bit - that will help reduce.
* Smell good! Get some perfume. Orange pop by Calgone and American Eagle No.77 are both good choices.
* For makeup, go to your local department store and ask the lady at the makeup counter to do your makeup for free so you can figure out what looks best on you.
* Keep your SKIN clean. Wash it every day and night and put on moisturizer.
* Smile!

Be careful in the sun. Wear hats and sunglasses all the time, along with a strong sunblock.Eat healthy foods. Bad foods do not help anything with losing weight. Workouts can leave you really, really, sore if you do it too fast, too wrong, or just too hard! Work your way up - two pounds is the maximum recommended weight to lose in a week. Beware of anything you are allergic to. Don't buy expensive/inexpensive make-up until you check the ingredients to make sure that you are not allergic to any of them. Do not wash your face too often, it will dry out your skin.

When moving overseas for a permanent or long-term country change, it can be difficult for children to adjust to cultural changes but ensuring that the move is a happy one is highly dependent on making a cultural adjustment successfully.

Always speak positively about the change. Children will quickly pick up from you that you find change exhilarating or terrifying. Make it easier on them by being positive about it. There is nothing wrong with making comparisons but do this in an educational way, not a "I wish things were like home" way. This will help the children to see the change as an adventure and something to be excited about.Be patient. Your new environment is not going to be your old environment and even restoring the family dynamics will take some time. Even if you get a new home and move in, it doesn't automatically bring back the lifestyle that you enjoyed in your previous country. If you can accept this, you will not be battling the feelings of nostalgia - embrace the nostalgia (for it will wash over you) but also be open to wonderful newness of all that is around you and look for all the positive elements of the new country and living arrangements. Encourage the children to look for all the good aspects as well and share your ideas together.

Pack a "ready-to-be-home" box. This should be the last box on the removal truck and the first one out. Have each child place a favorite toy, book, bed item and wall decoration in this box. Add any other elements that you feel say "our home" the moment that you put them on the wall or in the house somewhere. The moment your goods arrive, take this box and remove all the contents immediately. Each child can put their special home items in their rooms and you can decorate the remaining areas of the house. Although it will take a while for it to be your home, these little reminders of the last place together from your home country will ease some of the strangeness of it all.Learn about the new culture as quickly as possible. Be open to the new customs and traditions. Help your children to learn the new customs and do your best to have them observe these customs. It is important to explain differences in behaviour that might cause problems if the children behave in ways that are frowned upon. Make sure that they learn new rules that will help them in social contexts, such as using the correct hand to eat food or bringing gifts for special occasions. Some local customs may bother them too, such as children being patted on the head a lot; help them to understand that this is an expression of love for children but if it gets intolerable for a toddler, lift her up and carry her until she gets used to it.

Learn the language. If you are not in an English speaking country, it is important to immerse yourself in the new language as quickly as possible. This tends to be easier for children and there are many fun ways that they can begin to learn a new language - through reading children's books, TV, DVDs, visiting the park and making friends, attending shows and the cinema, joining hobby groups etc. Even if they attend an English-speaking school, they will still need the other language for outside school hours and to really gain an appreciation of their time in the new culture. It also broadens their employment opportunities as they grow older.Have faith in your children's own strength. Children tend to be more accepting and more resilient than adults about differences. They learn quickly, they adapt quickly and they find their own ways to cope with new ways of doing things. And it doesn't help to try and hide the harsher side of life from your children, such as poverty and homelessness; the children will eventually see it and for many who do notice it, they become very aware of the need to give, share and be of some help, especially when they see other children in distress.

Help them keep in touch with old friends. Send postcards, letters and e-mails to friends from home. This is a good opportunity to have the children explain their new life in a positive light to someone who doesn't know it - in the process, this often helps them to realize all the wonderful experiences that they are having. If possible, arrange a visit from your child's closest friend when you are settled in. And sometimes you will need to comfort the children when the friends taper off as does happen - it takes a lot of effort to keep in touch and as time moves on, ties don't always hold. Enjoy the transition as a family. Often living in a new culture is something that brings a family closer together, as you all adjust and seek reassurance from those who care about you most. This is a special experience that you may not have had if you had stayed in your own country; cherish the closeness and the shared journey of learning and support. Do things together that get you out of the house and discovering your new place together; share your fears, joys and concerns together and help one another make this transition gently.

Always join in the celebratory events of your new country. It helps give you a good perspective on what matters to the citizens of that country and it helps you to start understanding the character of the country better. Children love festivities and celebrations, so this will help them to enjoy their new life more too. Ask your children to invite their new friends to your new home. Treat new friends of your children as guests, as and when they visit your new home. If you can, learn about the new culture before you leave your old country. This will help the children know special issues in advance and it becomes a source of interest to discover the things that they have learned from books and the internet in real life when they arrive.
