Want to boost your body confidence is ten easy steps? Read on....

1. Remember you're the only one of you there is!

Yep, you're totally unique and that's pretty awesome. Celebrate being you - there's no right or wrong way to look, we're all individuals.

2. Embrace being young

Ok so your parents banging on about appreciating your youthful skin and non-achy joints may be slightly annoying, but there's no denying it's true. Enjoy it!

3. Dress to suit your shape

The key to feeling confident is feeling comfortable - and not every trend is right for every body shape. Make sure you look and feel your best by wearing things YOU want to wear.

4. Eat healthily

Not only can eating natural, healthy foods make you actually feel happier but they'll keep your body looking and feeling great too. Avoid junk food and fizzy drinks, which can make you feel sluggish and lazy.

5. Shake off the haters

NOBODY has a right to make you feel bad about yourself - so avoid anyone who brings you down. It can be hard, but try not to let any nasty comments get to you, and confide in your friends or family if you are feeling a bit down. A problem halved is a problem shared, and all that.

6. LAUGH

Laughing really is the best medicine - and there's nothing like giggling with your friends until you can hardly breathe to make you feel awesome. Also, what's prettier than a smiley girl? EXACTLY.

7. Focus on the things you DO like about yourself

It's all about a positive mental attitude. Rather than obsessing over things you'd like to change about yourself, focus on the things you DO like. The more confident you feel about yourself, the more confident you'll appear to others - and confidence IS attractive.

8. Beat the PMS blues

Periods can make you feel a bit rubbish, what with mood swings, cramps and bloating. Make sure there's one less thing to worry about by using Always, which will reduce the chance of leaks and keep you feeling protected.

9. Have a sharing sesh with your friends

It may sound cheesy, but if you sit down with your pals and have a chat about body confidence, you'll realise that EVERYONE worries about the way they look. You might think your BFF is perfect in every way - only to find out she hates her hair and thinks her boobs are too small. It helps to realise you're not the only one who worries - so suggest a sharing sesh with your friends.

10. Excersise

Excersise releases endorphins, and endorphins make you happy! Keeping active will also ensure that your body stays healthy - always important when it comes to loving the skin you're in!
