    As you know, a smile is a friendly gesture that attracts people. Although it is so simple, it is also the most effective way to show that you are glad to see them, and you are sincerely interested in them. Peo-ple are attracted to smiley, happy faces. Moreover, smiling is actually beneficial for your physical, mental and emotional health. "Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy". Smiling helps you to be happy, and makes you look friendly. That's why it is the best way to attract new friends. If you smile at some-one, she (or he) will smile back, and that can be the beginning of a friendship. After all, a smile costs nothing.

    So, smile at strangers and you just might change lives: your life and their lives.

    Be sociable, smile and talk to new people.

    Participate in social activities like parties,

    or community and school events, where

    you can meet people who will be your fu-

    ture friends. It is hard to attract friends, if

    you are antisocial. Talk to someone from

    your class, and see the common interests

    you both have. Smile lightens you up, so

    smile when you introduce yourself to a

    new person.

    Be careful! There is a line when meeting people, between a good friend and some-body looking for a date. When you meet a boy and you want to be a friend to him, make sure that he knows your intentions.

    When you find yourself "tongue-tied", feeling shy, or even embarrassed, then smile. It is the most beautiful way to "overcome" difficult situations, and helps you to relax and take your time. Smile "sends signals" to people watching, that you are easy going and fun.

    Smile and listen to what your "future"

    friends have to say, in order to show

    them, that you care, and in order to under-

    stand how your new friends feel. People

    seek friends, who care to listen to what

    they are saying.

    Smile and do something that will get you noticed, like helping them out if they need it, for example. True friendship starts when someone lends a helping hand to someone who needs it.

    Smile, laugh and tell jokes. If you don't

    know any jokes, find some. Try to see the

    humorous side of everything, and be a

    pleasant new friend.

    From the other hand, remember that not

    everyone will like you. Some girls are in-

    secure, and not open to new friendships.

    Smile to show them that you like them,

    even if they don't like you. You will see

    that, even if they don't like you, they will

    respect you.

    You can make friends naturally, but it takes work to keep them. People love to see smiley faces around them.

    Smile and let your relationships shine through.

    It is important is to smile during the hard-est of times. Your friends will like to see you, when they have problems, or when they are down, and they will feel closer to you.

    If they need a shoulder to cry on, be there

    for them, and remind them what Charles

    Chaplin used to say: "You will find that

    life is still worthwhile, if you just smile".

    It is also important of course, to know

    when to stop smiling. When one of your

    new friends gossips, don't smile. Show her,

    or him, that you are responsible, you have

    values, and you care about the others. If

    you gossip with your friend about the oth-

    ers, then she (or he) will feel that you will

    gossip about her too.

    A smile can change the world around you,

    so "use" it with respect. Know the differ-

    ence between being happy and smiley, and

    being silly and goofy.

    In conclusion, withhold a smile only when the smile can hurt someone. Otherwise, smile out loud, and let your smile bloom forth in a riot. Too often we underestimate the power of a smile: it has the potential to turn a life around; your life! So, begin a new day with a simple smile!

    You are finally home from school! Awesome, it is time to relax a bit and spend some quality time

    with your besties. Why not try an all-natural face mask to release some stress and freshen your face?

    Here, are a couple of masks that are really simple and made of only good ingredients that you can

    probably find in your kitchen.

    Remember before you begin either mask, make sure your face is clean and dry. Oh yeah and don't forget to wear your cutest headband or

    barrettes to keep your hair off your face.

    Naner Mask

    Bananas are great for snacks and are pretty good for your skin too. Bananas naturally remove excess oils from your skin and have anti-

    bacterial properties that can clear up acne prone skin. Try the Naner mask, if you or your besties are prone to oily skin by the end of the

    day.

    First gather up a few supplies:

    One ripe or over-ripe banana

    Honey (one Tbsp)

    Bowl

    Fork

    Towel

    Now that you have your supplies at hand, lets get started! Peel a ripe banana, place it in the bowl, and use the fork to mash it up. Once

    you have a nice banana puree, add a table spoon of honey and stir until you get a nice even spreadable consistency. For mixing ease, you

    may want to heat honey just a bit before you add it to the banana puree. Perfect! Now spread the yummy smelling mask onto your clean

    face. Let the mask sit for about fifteen minutes and then wipe away with a warm towel.

    Yogi Mask

    If your skin tends to be on the dry and flaky, side try a yogurt and egg white mask. The two ingredient mask will replenish the skin with

    soothing yogurt and keep your pores refined with egg whites. First gather these ingredients and supplies:

    2 Tbsp plain yogurt (not flavored) in either Greek or regular style

    Two Eggs (use the whites only)

    Bowl

    Fork

    Towel

    First, begin by separating the egg whites from the yolks. Use the edge of the bowl to crack the egg. Then move the egg yolk from side to

    side of cracked halves. The whites should shift out into the bowl (repeat for second egg). Either discard unused yolks or place them in a

    small container for a yummy recipe later. Now add 2 Tbsp of yogurt to egg whites and whisk with the fork. Mix well until the mask has

    an even consistency. Next using your fingers apply the creamy mixture over your face keeping it away from the eyes. Allow the mask to

    dry for five to ten minutes. You will notice your skin will feel tighter as it dries this is your pores shrinking up; smaller pores will give

    your face a smooth clean look. Once mask is dried remove it with a warm wet towel.

    Awwwwdoesnt that feel good? Your face is revitalized and clean. Now there is nothing between your smiling face and the rest of the

    world. Next time you and your besties need to relax, boost your mood and your bonding time with these fun and easy face masks.
