15 Ways To Know Puberty Hit You--Hard

Seriously. Being a girl can be a pain but it has its perks, too!

Once upon a time, a few mistakes ago, Taylor Swift's heart was broken.

But this was not your typical pretty boy who strums a guitar or a Hollywood heartthrob. It's PUBERTY. And boy, did Taylor see RED. Because she sings...

Unfortunately, most girls can't write songs and sing as awesome as Taylor. The non-celeb girl will have to face it with aplomb. But fret not, there's a Puberty Fairy and she will help you along the way. For now, you will definitely experience these:

1. PUBERTY = FLYING COCKROACH

Hitting puberty is like spotting a flying cockroach in your house. It’s terrifying, fast, and all you want to do is scream! And, don’t even try looking to your BFF for advice because she’s experiencing the exact same thing and is just as panicky as you are.

2. But KEEP CALM.

The Puberty Fairy works in mysterious ways. Think Zac Efron. Remember High School Musical Zac Efron? Here's a refresher:

It's makes you go FACEPALM for sure. But then he got all retro-cute in Hairspray as Link.

 

 

And from that point on, the awkward Puberty stage has left the Zef forever. Because the adorkable phase has long been gone. Meet the Zac Efron of now:

DAYUM Puberty did you good, Zac Efron. Congrats on your face! (And to us all.)

 

3. In the meantime though…Yes, you have to wait.

4. You will experience PIZZA FACE.

No, that’s not pepperoni on your nose. That’s a big, red pimple. And it always seems to pop up at the worst moments a.k.a. when you’re about to see your crush or go to prom! Blocked pores become unsightly blemishes, so keep the puberty fairy and pimples at bay by making sure you only use gentle cleansers for the face that are certified made for teens!

5. …and blackheads and whiteheads. I cannot.

Whether it’s a big red pump on your cheek, whiteheads on your face, or blackheads on your nose, acne is acne! Those blemishes are clogged pores and totes make you feel insecure! No matter how tempted you get, don’t pick and pop at 'em or use harsh soaps not made for acne-prone teen skin! It’ll just get worse. Trust us. And it doesn’t stop there…

6. Shining, Shimmering, T-Zone

As Aladdin sings it in the animated classic, an oily face is indeed a whole new world for teens.

Shiny things are cool when they’re new iGadgets for your birthday, teeth, or Rihanna’s bright diamonds. But, when you’ve got a shiny forehead, those odd looks you’re getting aren’t people admiring your pretty face, dearie. That’s excess oil on your T-Zone: your forehead and nose areas! Banish the oil with toner, oil film, and dab on some powder to rid you of that slick and icky look.

 

7. Time to break out!

Alongside your skincare woes is your monthly flow. It's inevitable and part of being a girl.

On average, Aunt Flo pays a visit every 28 days. And she’s going to be your worst nightmare every month until you hit 50 or so. Those menstrual hormones will make you break out, you've got to deal. Stressing out will only make it worse. Be consistent with your skincare routine and hygiene. Unfortunately, as JLaw says...

... if you don't do the proper methods of skincare. So always "Cleanse. Tone. Exfoliate. Protect. Moisturize. Repeat."

 

8. Your Stomach Will Turn Into a Black Hole

PMS is going to want to make you eat EVERYTHING that isn’t nailed down. You will crave junk food, and feel bloated, and then hate life, and to make matters worse…

9. You will feel like your insides are being squeezed, punched, and ripped apart.

It’s called dysmenorrhea, and it’s your body’s way of telling you that your period’s coming. It’s like Spider-Man’s spidey sense, but instead of warning you that danger is near, it marks the coming of…

10. BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!

The first two to three days will be the worst. You’ll be afraid to run, jump, or even sit. And don’t even think about laughing too hard or sneezing because it will be like Niagara Falls or Moses turning the rivers red with the blood of the firstborn. While there’s no getting around the fact that periods suck, do yourself a favor and use a sanitary napkin that has a raised center, anti-leak funnels, and a longer and wider all-night leak guard.

11. But the Puberty Fairy isn’t done with you yet.

Yeah, she’s annoying but be frenemies, it helps.

12. Singing Panties!

Even when you’re not on your period, your panty is still going to be really not-so-fresh. Heck, THERE ARE LIKE 3 SONGS ABOUT IT. Yes, singing panties.

13. So be a girl scout.

White discharge can happen anytime (not to mention sweat and pee, ew), so you need to be a girl scout and wear a pantiliner everyday to stay fresh down there. After all, it doesn’t make sense to spend so much money on make-up, hair, and skincare when you feel itchy, smelly, and wet where it matters most, right?

14. So remember: Sometimes, you have to go through a Taylor Swift broken-heart-meltdown before coming back out on top with a hit record.

Puberty? SHAKE IT OFF!

15. So don’t worry, it gets better! 

When periods, pimples, and unfreshness down there stress you out, just remember that trusted teen brands CLEAN & CLEAR®, MODESS®, and CAREFREE® have got you covered so you can keep calm and allow the world to see the real you.

LIFE ADVICE YOU NEED TO HEAR WHILE YOURE STILL YOUNG

This blog is dedicated to all teens out there struggling in determining what they really want in their life or if you simply want a glow up. And since were still facing a pandemic, I think this is also a season where everyone is re-thinking about their lives. So, I hope these advices might help you.

Tip #1. TAKE RISK - since most of you are still young, I advice you to take your biggest risk. Whether it may be taking the course you want, a skill you want to acquire or just simply taking the risk to throw away your emotional baggage from your childhood. While you're still young, you have very little to lose. You dont have that much commitments and responsibilities. Because the older you get, the more responsibilities and obligations came. So when they are still not piling up, take the risk! As for me, the biggest risk I took when I was still a teenager is to CUT OFF TOXIC FAMILY TIES.

I may sound rude here but, yeah. I decided to throw away my emotional baggage from my traumatic childhood and cut off some of my family ties and it is completely okay! You dont have to be bothered by whatever they will say. Because at your age, you are already investing on your growth as a person. If you really want to grow, THERE IS NO PERFECT TIME FOR YOU TO TAKE RISK BUT NOW. Because in taking risk you are actually giving yourself a reward of getting something amazing or beyond what you expect you can have. As they say, the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward. Keep in mind that the bigger the risk, the bigger possibility of FAILURE. But that is completely OKAY. Because just like what I said earlier, you are still young. You dont have so much to lose so, dont be afraid to take the risk and then fail. But after failing, learn from it and the more courage you have to take risk the greater the learning, reward or happiness. Ito na nga, how to take risk nga ba? And what are the risk that would actually help me to grow? #

2: VOICE LESSON - dont get me wrong, hindi ito vocalization para sa pagkanta. What I mean is, learn to listen to that VOICE INSIDE YOU. Listen to your heart, to your intuition and to your visions because it will be your GUIDE. Because I realize that as you go along your journey of your life and if you really want to be YOURSELF and be successful in achieving your goals, the only GUIDE that you should follow is your OWN VOICE.

It is okay to take and consider other people's advices but at the end of the day,you should never forget to listen to your own voice. Because that voice is what tells you what you truly want. How would you know that if it is your 'own' voice? Your own voice always comes from your HEART. The voice where YOU and GOD'S voice are one. Because I firmly believe that God knows your heart and that is where he reside. I like journaling because whenever I journal my thought every night and every morning, I feel a dual voice inside my head. Like, it contradicts what the other voice is telling. For example: If we have dreams or goals that puts us so much weight and pressure to the point that it makes you exhausted, STOP. Because it might be a dream or goal of someone else. I believe that your own dreams and goals may be frustrating most of the time, but that frustration has fueling feeling that will always tell you that 'This is the hard way to better so keep going'. Frustration in your own dreams will not make you feel exhausted because achieving a dream itself is a fulfilling feeling.

#3. TAKE ACTION - if you really want something to happen, take action. Dont just sit there and wait things to come your way. Make action or decisions that will take you to where you want to go in your life. Just like what I said in one of my novels that I am writing in wattpad, "There is no such thing as destiny or fate. Because YOU make your OWN life choices." For example, I cannot expect to be a published author if I dont write any novels right? The bottomline here is, if you are not moving forward you are actually moving backward. And it is a sad thing. Life is full of situations where you will be put in the line whether you take courage or just stay where you are. Because GROWING needs consistency in moving forward. So if you dont have to enough courage to take action, your life will always stay the same or worse you will continuously shrink down.

#4. EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS - this means stretching your comfort zone. I watched an anime entitled "Black Clover" there is a captain there where he always tell his subordinates to surpass their limits right, here right now. Going out of our comfort zones are surely scary and uncomfortable. But you have to accept the fact that you cannot stay on the coast forever. You have to change, because the only thing that is constant in this world is change right? Go out of your comfort zones because LIMITS are just in the MIND. There are disabled people who are successful in their own careers. Because the lesson here is, if you hold back there will be no growth. Because GROWTH blooms in DISCOMFORT.

Last, #5. INVEST IN YOURSELF - especially now that you are still young, you should focus on investing on yourself more. Time is your bestfriend at this point of your life. You have so much time to discover things about yourself. I never regret buying and reading books that I never knew will help me later on in dealing life's challenges. You can use that time to read books, gain wisdom, or pick a new skill, improve your talent and learn from your experiences. Keep learning outside your home or your school. Because the real battlefield is OUTSIDE. What you learn in school will only help you in your career but your wisdom and experiences will help you in life or as a person. People who doesnt embrace growth will never succeed in their life. (This is a reflection blog from my 21st birthday last week. I hope you can feature this on your page and I hope it can help others as well. )
