He's topless whilst getting ready (shaving, making coffee + breakfast, whilst flossing, whilst putting shoes on)
Puts on shoes and ties them
Puts on his top (looks like he's suffocating himself)
At the end when he walks out of his house, he is dressed in white which makes him look innocent.

He cleans the blood from his neck with a tissue
When he was putting on his shirt, he acts like he's suffocating himself
He uses floss to clean his teeth

skins the skins trailer teenagers are being represented in a negative way: i.e. as part lovers, promiscuous, violent, aggressive, drunks. druggies, riotous, loud, immature, destructive, ignorant, rude, disrespectful, obnoxious, energy, sexual, cheap/dirty and scrifty.In the skins trailer, the representation are constructed by: music [loud + fast pace],setting [pubs], costume, hair, action of the actors and the narrative content.from my own point of view, i would say that these features represent teenagers in a negative way and not all teenagers are like that. so it is stereotypical and being exaggerated.
