I don’t know about you, but I constantly hear about the benefits of drinking lots of water.  I was always skeptical if it had as many beauty benefits as all the supermodels and celebrities say it has.  After I did some research, I found out it really is all it’s cracked up to be!  Here are some water beauty benefits that truly are beneficial and some that are simply myths!

Chelsea Crockett - Water BenefitsYou always hear people with perfect skin say, “I started drinking a ton of water and my skin cleared up so quickly.”  Although water helps with the process of eliminating acne, it isn’t the only success factor.  When most people say this, they usually do things like cut out soda, eat healthier, etc.  So although drinking your daily amount of water helps, lifestyle changes are usually put into practice, as well.

That being said, it also has it’s skin benefits.  If you have dry skin, drinking more water will give your skin the moisture it needs.  Water is also known for flushing out toxics and bacteria in your body.  So, it will also help get rid of that nasty bacteria in your pores, too!  It not as much helps with the appearance of your skin, but with the health of it.  It’ll help pump up your skin and revitalize your pores!

So, now you know!  Everywhere you go, take a bottle of water with you. You’ll see the magic happen right before your eyes!

  • Lip Love ($15).  This lip balm is an oil-based formula that leaves your lips smooth and soft.  It provides the perfect base for applying lipstick, lip gloss, or whatever lip product you’re rocking that day.
  • Pretty Gritty Skin Polish ($28).  Dry or peeling skin can oftentimes be the hardest surface to try and apply a long-lasting face of makeup to.  And since it’s summertime, I’m sure lots of us have some peeling skin here and there.  Use this polish to exfoliate your skin for a perfectly smooth face!
  • Pore Refining Peel ($26).  Are your pores clogged with oil, dirt, or other bacteria?  If your skin feels heavy and oily, try using this peel-off face mask to draw out any impurities that are harming your skin!

Why You Should Always Change Your Clothes After the Gym

When I have time, I love to hit the gym and workout.  With that being said, I’d be lying if I said I never break a sweat when I exercise. …

When I have time, I love to hit the gym and workout.  With that being said, I’d be lying if I said I never break a sweat when I exercise.  You might not even be aware of what can happen to your body after going to the gym, but here are a few reasons why you should always change out of your clothes after a hard workout!

  • We all know how acne appears right?  When our pores get clogged, especially after a sweaty workout, acne starts to pop up around our body, not just face.  Leaving damp, dirty clothes on for long periods of time suffocates and clogs our pores!Chelsea Crockett - Exercise
  • Okay, this one might be the grossest.  Bacterial infections love to feed off of sweat.  When you leave on damp, sweaty clothing, you’re leaving little to no room for your skin to breathe.  This is the perfect opportunity for bacteria to grow! 
  • When it comes to feet, we all know they can get pretty smelly at times.  If you’re someone that works out every day and leaves your socks and shoes on for hours at a time, they have no room to air out!
  • A lot of the time when we workout, we wear tight clothing such as leggings, sports bras, tanks, etc.  Just like acne, inflamed hair follicles can appear from suffocating your pores.  If you’ve ever had one before, you know how uncomfortable and painful they can be!

Crazy, right?  Well, now you know!  Make sure you’re always keeping your body clean and fresh!

Makeup remover is the best thing in the world when it comes to a quick fix for taking off your makeup. Some people confuse it as an every night substitute for washing your face which shouldn’t be the case! Others question if it’s hurting their skin much more than helping it. I did a little research and dug up some answers!

To sum up the overall answer, makeup removers are NOT bad for your skin as long as you continue washing your face after using them. Makeup removers cannot be Chelsea Crockett - Makeup Removersubstituted for your nightly face wash. This is where it causes a problem! Also, be a smart shopper when buying your product and pay attention to what ingredients are used. If it is an alcohol based remover, try avoiding it! They can sometimes dry out your skin and cause irritation. Look for oil-free products as well. Oil can clog up your pores and cause breakouts. I definitely recommend an oil-free makeup remover for those with oily or sensitive skin!

If you’re cursed with super sensitive skin, you have some more guidelines to follow. Makeup removers with fragrances can sometimes annoy and irritate your pores. BareMinerals is a good brand to look at when it comes to following sensitive skin rules!

What is your go-to brand for makeup remover? Let me know below!

10 Beauty Mistakes You Didn’t Know You Were Making

Do you ever crawl into bed after a long day and accidentally fall asleep with your makeup on? Or maybe you always “forget” to wash your makeup brushes. Sound familiar?…

Do you ever crawl into bed after a long day and accidentally fall asleep with your makeup on? Or maybe you always “forget” to wash your makeup brushes. Sound familiar? These are only a couple of the many beauty crimes you might be committing! I’m here to let you know what beauty mistakes you should put an end to ASAP!

  1. Sleeping in your makeup. Foundation residue and layers of eye shadow are doing more than you think when you sleep. They clog your pores and encourage breakouts!
  2. Wearing waterproof mascara every day. Doing this results in dried-out lashes. Also, when scrubbing it off at the end of the day, you’re likely to lose more lashes.
  3. Ignoring a topcoat. If you want your polish to last, don’t neglect this.
  4. Applying nail polish over your cuticles. Your polish won’t stay on for long. Avoid this!
  5. Forgetting to wash your makeup brushes. Keep them clean to keep away any bacteria you might be adding to your skin. Yuck!
  6. Applying makeup in the wrong lighting. You don’t want to look orange or like a ghost!Chelsea Crockett - Matching Foundation
  7. Reapplying makeup continuously throughout your day. Caking on makeup is never a good idea. Although it may seem like there’s none left, wash your face before adding another layer!
  8. Matching your foundation shade to the back of your hand. This often tricks you by thinking you found the perfect shade.
  9. Washing your hair every day. Having hydrated locks is good, so don’t dry them out by doing this.
  10. Forgetting to apply facial sunscreen. Sunburns to your face are often the most damaging to your pores. Avoid it before it happens!

And the list goes on and on! Put a stop to your beauty crimes before they do even more damage!

Egg Mask Facial

Hey Insiders,

Do you have irritating acne or acne scarring? Do you suffer from enlarged pores? Today I am going to give you an at-home remedy for these problems. It’s called an egg mask facial!

What you will need: One organic egg. That’s it!

First: Wash your face thoroughly, make sure you have no makeup left on your face.

Next: grab an organic egg. Why an organic egg? The chickens that provide these eggs are fed grains that are not grown with pesticides. They are also free range, which means they are not cooped up in cages. These kind of eggs are just all around better quality.

After that: Crack open your egg and separate the egg yolk from the egg white. Put them in separate bowls. Stir your egg white until it begins to get bubbly.

Next: take the frothy egg white and use your fingers to cover your face in it! Make sure you cover every inch of your face. Let it sit until your face feels tight, like you just got Botox!

After that: rinse off your face with warm water. Viola, you are finished! If you want to, you can use the egg yolk as a moisturizer. Just break it open and rub the yellow liquid all over your face. Then, when you feel it tighten up, then you can rinse it off.

If you want to: you can rub a piece of ice over your face afterwards to help close your pores. Nifty, right?

There are so many ways to approach skin care with natural remedies. There are numerous benefits from using natural ways, just a few of them being that there is no exposure to harsh chemicals and it is so inexpensive! Most of the natural alternatives use ingredients you can find in your very own kitchen. Easy peasy! Wink
