5 Things to Expect When Your Body Changes

While in your teen years, you’ll begin to notice body changes at some point. Some of them you’ll like and others you won’t. It’s all a part of growing up.

There’s no getting around the stuff that you don’t like, but if you’re better prepared before they happen, then you’ll be better off.

Here are some things to expect when your body changes…

Acne

Oh yes, the lovely world of pimples. There’s nothing appealing about it. Acne sucks and even more when you get it unexpectedly.

To help prevent them, make sure that you wash your face at least once a day. Twice is even better; once in the morning and once at night.

Try not to put your hands in your face all the time. Your hands carry a lot of germs and the last thing you want to do is to transfer those germs onto your face.

I bet you didn’t know this, but eating healthy and drinking plenty of water contributes highly to a nice skin complexion. Make sure your diet includes plenty of fruits and veggies.

Body Odor

Let’s face it, you’re not a baby anymore and body odor does exist. You need to make sure that you’re taking a bath or shower daily.

This is especially important if you’re very active. The last thing you want is to be the talk of the school because you missed that daily wash.

If need be, carry a stick of deodorant and some baby wipes in your back pack if you’re in school. Whenever you’re feeling a little tangy, you can excuse yourself to the bathroom and handle your business.

Body Hair

Pretty soon you’ll start to grow hair in places that you’ve never seen before. You may notice it on your arms, chest, legs, back, face and even around your genitals.

Don’t panic, it’s normal. You can always remove the unwanted hair by shaving. Even though it will grow back, you can at least get rid of it for the time being.

Increased Weight

You may find yourself gaining a few extra pounds over the next few years. For some of you this might be great, but for others not so much.

As you get older, your metabolism tends to slow down, thus making it easier for you to hold on to extra weight.

However, the weight you want to be at is easy to maintain with a little bit of work. For example, staying active and eating healthy is a great way to keep off that excess fat.

Sexual Urges

Now’s the time where you’ve probably already learned about the birds and the bees (I hope). You may know the basics about sex and the urges you may feel. I just hoped you listened.

Guys are known to get erections when they’re sexually aroused. It can be quite embarrassing for them depending on where they are and who they’re in front of.

Girls get aroused as well, only we’re able to hide ours lot better. Girls have what’s known as a clitoris that becomes hard when aroused.

It’s up to you to decide what to do when you get these feelings. Hopefully you have enough will power to fight them and stay on track.

You’ll come across quite a bit more when your body changes, but I just wanted to give you a heads up on a few of them. Have you experienced any crazy body changes? Comment below and talk about it.
