    Keep clean.
    • Brush your teeth. Your teeth will look much better if you brush your teeth. Your breath will also smell nice. Don't forget to floss.
    • Take a shower every day. Wash your hair and body. This will stop you from smelling and will make you feel fresher. If you smell nice, people are more likely to be around you. Don't think that just because you are young that you don't need to keep clean.
