You think you know your body, right? Then you hit puberty, and it’s up in the air again. At school it becomes all about whose boobs are the biggest and who’s started their period first. Suddenly you start crying because you left your pen in Chemistry and that’s the other side of campus. Don’t worry, you’re not being taken over by emotional bleeding aliens. You’re just growing up. Embrace it, and you’ll get used to it quicker than you can say “I need a new bra”

Spots

More oil on your skin can lead to spots on your face, back and chest.

  • Wash daily with with warm water and a face wash, especially if you’ve started wearing make-up.
  • If your skin is still really spotty, over-the-counter creams can help – don’t be afraid to ask!

Sweating

You’ll start sweating more and it’ll be quite a bit smellier. Combat this by:

  • Using deodorant every day.
  • Wearing dark or white materials as sweat patches won’t show up so much.

TIP: Grey is the worst colour for sweat patches!

Breasts

Your boobs will grow and may feel sore.

  • Get fitted – 64% of women wear the wrong size bra, so it’s important to get it right.
  • Go shopping! If your tops are too tight across the boobs, it’s a good excuse to buy some more.

Hair

You’ll find hair starts to grow in your armpits, around your vagina, on your legs and arms, and sometimes on your upper lip.

  • Some girls shave or wax
  • Some girls use cream
  • and some girls just let it grow!

The golden rule is just do what feels right for you.

Hips

Your hips will get wider. It’s really to make having babies easier, but for us it’s all about the curves.

  • Don’t hide yourself away in baggy clothes (unless that’s your style!).
  • Have fun and experiment with your new shape.

Periods

Your body’s telling you it’s ready to have babies. Once a month, when your eggs aren’t turned into babies, your womb sheds its lining, which looks like lots of blood (don’t worry – it’s only three tablespoons).

  • Work out what protection you need when your period starts.
  • Keep doing your favourite things by finding the right pad or tampon
  • Hormones mean mood swings, but it’s nothing us girls can’t handle!

Some steps on the way to your adult female body are exciting – and some are not so exciting. But all of the body changes you’ll experience are totally manageable – you got this!
