Beauty Benefits of Shaving Your Face

Facial hair: everyone has it. Even us girls! We have finer, lighter hair on our faces than the dudes do, but we still have hairy faces none the less. Sometimes the hair on my upper lip makes me self-conscious. It’s totally not noticeable to anyone but myself, but it still bugs me. I started doing a little research on facial hair removal, and I discovered that a lot of women shave their face! High class celebs like Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe swore by it.

Why? Because it is actually really great for your skin! By using a razor to remove the hair, you are also exfoliating your skin, which is a great for anti-aging. This makes your makeup go on smoother and gives your skin a glow! Here are a few common questions most women have about shaving their face:

  1. Does it hurt: Nope! You can get razors that are made for shaving women’s faces.
  2. Does it grow back thicker and darker: Nope!
  3. How often should I shave: Once or twice a week, if you make it part of your skincare regimen it will become a habit!
  4. What is the technique: First, get yourself a face razor at Walgreens. Next, pull your skin taut and shave downward on the skin in short strokes. Moisturize your face afterwards to keep it from getting too dry.

This next part is important: Only shave if you WANT to! This is totally a preference thing. If you don’t care about the invisible hair on your face, then leave it alone! Everyone’s beauty preferences are different. 😊

I love going to the gym. It helps me calm my mind and makes me feel healthy and strong. The only downfall of visiting the gym is that I seem to break out after I go. I looked up why this was the case, and it was because I wasn’t treating my skin the way I should! After we workout, our pores are wide open which means that they are open to bacteria and makeup residue. Your skin is super vulnerable after a visit to the gym. Here are a few ways that I found to keep your skin healthy after hitting the gym or the trail.

  1. Make sure your makeup is gone before you work out. Use a makeup wipe to quickly and easily clear your skin. Do this so that your sweat can filter out of your pores freely instead of getting trapped by your makeup.
  2. Use skin products that don’t irritate. Using a harsh cleanser after you workout is not doing your skin any favors! Spray a facial toner on your skin post-workout to soothe and calm your skin.
  3. If you can’t get to a shower, use healthy ingredients to wash your face. Makeup wipes with natural cleansers like lavender are a great and handy way to quickly and easily get your skin clean of sweat and build-up after a workout.
  4. Keep your skin care kit on hand. If you workout before work or school, or you typically have to go somewhere other than home after a workout, keep your skincare essentials in a small travel bag. This is a great way to make sure that you get your skin cleansed before going anywhere, plus it will make you feel refreshed when you are on the go.

Keeping your skin clean is the key to kicking breakouts to the curb!

Easy At-Home Ways to Detox Your Skin

Every day our face is hit with toxins and impurities, and this could be the culprit behind your most annoying skin issues! Toxins cause blackheads and pimples, plus they lower our skin’s ability to regenerate and make new cells which makes it look dull and dry. If you are having these issues, it means that it is time to detox your skin. Here is how to purify your complexion to make it radiant and healthy!

  1. Skin aromatherapy: Steaming your face with essential oils is a great way to detox your tired skin. Prep your skin with a hot towel that has a few drops of eucalyptus and peppermint oil to soothe and wake up your skin. Heat five cups of water, pour it in a bowl, and add some rose and jasmine oil. Then place your head a few inches above the bowl and cover it with a towel to keep the steam in.
  2. Stick to a routine: I know how tempting it is sometimes to just fall into bed without doing your whole face routine at night, but it is so worth it to stick to your routine to prevent impurities and toxins from getting in your skin.
  3. Do an at-home peel: Scrubs are great for occasional use, but using them all the time is too harsh on your skin. Peels improve the texture of your skin and treat acne, sun damage, and wrinkles! Peels utilize different types of acids in order to get rid of dead cells and promote new cell growth. There are tons of different peels for every skin type, so do your research.
  4. Use a salt and mineral mask: Yes, we need to get our skin a little dirty to detox it sometimes! Mud masks help detox by restoring pH balance and hydrating the skin. They also help improve blood flow to the skin.

These are all really easy ways to detox your skin right from home! Your skin will thank you.

I recently did a video on YouTube about how I cleared my acne, have you seen it? If not, a quick recap is that I started using a product called “Curology” and I am absolutely in love! This acne prevention medication is custom tailored for your skin and monitored by a licensed dermatologist, so this will work with any skin type (get a 30 day trial for free here:  https://curology.com/invite/chelsea). But, for those of you who like to go the more all natural, DIY skincare route, I did a bit of research and found 4 at-home skincare tips to keep your skin clear!

  1. Incorporate coconut oil: I like to use a little coconut oil on my skin after my shower, just to keep my skin soft. It is also antibacterial, so it keeps your skin clean and clear.
  2. Exfoliate daily: Use an exfoliant such as a sugar scrub every day to keep your pores clear and skin smooth. Every-day exfoliation helps keep oil and gunk from building up on your skin and in your pores!FullSizeRender-30
  3. Drink lots of water: Keeping yourself hydrated means keeping your skin hydrated! Staying hydrated helps your skin stay clear and moisturized.
  4. Change your pillowcase every/every other day. This keeps bacteria from building up and smothering your skin while you sleep!

If skin medicines aren’t your thing, try these healthy tips to keep acne away!
