Repair Unwanted Summer Damage

            Hey everyone!  With summer coming to a close, we want to make sure we’re looking our best for the upcoming school year.  Throughout the summer, our skin and hair receive unwanted damage from too many days in the pool and sun.  Luckily, with the help of developed products, you can easily fix your dead skin and body cells!

             I know most of us love swimming and days at the pool, but of course, too much of anything is never good.  Most pools contain chlorine which creates some bad effects on our bodies.  Chlorine dries out your skin and hair and even brings redness to your eyes.  To fix your post-pool hair, try using the Philip Kingsley Swimcap.  This cream repairs the dried and damaged parts of your hair and also protects it from the sun next time you take a dip at the pool.  Even members of the U.S. Olympic Swim Team use this, so you know it’s the real deal.

            As far as skin goes, getting too much sun can end up in a nasty sunburn.  Sunburns damage the cells on your body and even worse, on your face.  The perfect solution to help cool the burn is aloe.  You can find aloe almost anywhere, but finding aloe for your face is tricky.  If you’re like me, you’ll need something that’s good on sensitive skin.  Clinique’s “After-Sun Rescue Balm with Aloe” is oil-free and calms sun-exposed skin.  To help your cracked lips, try either EOS or Burt’s Bees’ Conditioning Balm.  Both products will soothe the burning feeling and repair the damage in your lips.Chelsea Crockett - Repair Summer Damage

            Hey girlies!  L’Oreal is one of my favorite hair and makeup brands with its great quality and awesome products.  They’ve been in business for years, but I’ve just recently heard about their “Total Repair 5” hair treatment. 

            For full effect, it includes a shampoo, conditioner, and damage-erasing balm.  Even just the shampoo itself gives you already noticeable soft hair.  Each product in the treatment contains ceramide which is a type of lipid that benefits your hair.  Whenever you use a certain product that contains ceramide, it restores the natural properties of your hair, making it smoother and softer.  Without ceramide, your hair would be damaged and dry.

            Both the shampoo and conditioner worChelsea Crockett - Damage Erasing Balmk amazing, but the damage-erasing balm is where most of the magic happens.  It instantly repairs the five signs of damage: 1.Split Ends 2.Weak 3.Rough 4.Full 5.Dehydrated.  While you’re in the shower, all you have to do is message it through your hair and let it sit for 3-5 minutes.  It’s as simple as that!

            Another product of the series is the Multi-Restorative Dry Oil.  This is a daily leave-in treatment that works continuously throughout the day.  Apply this oil to damp hair and style your hair as you usually would.  This will make your hair shine and tame those unwanted flyaways!

            Good luck with those luscious locks!Wink

Wanna know what the fall 2013 hair trends are? Good, cuz I am about to tell you!

Messy Beach Bun: These buns look effortless and wind-blown! You can achieve this look by sectioning off the hair in front of your head (where your bangs would be) and pulling the rest of your hair up into a ponytail just below the crown. Twist the pony into a bun and secure it with bobby pins. Next, curl the hair in the front loosely and then randomly pin them around the bun in the back.chelsea crockett messy bun

Upside Down French Braid: I am in love with this trend! It is so stinkin cute. It is not as hard as it looks! Just flip your head upside down and start the braid at the nape of your neck. Braid it until you get to your crown. Gather the rest of your hair and combine it all into a ponytail. Wrap the ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Viola!upside down french braid chelsea crockett

Braided Headband: This style is so classy! How do you do it? First, part your hair down the middle. Then make a small braid on each ear starting behind each ear. Pull them over each other and pin them tightly against the top of the head.chelsea crockett braided headband

I hope these work for ya!

XOXO, Chels

            Hey girls!  I know it’s hard to believe, but fall is only weeks away!  This means it’s almost time to ditch the shorts and tanks for jeans and jackets.  The trends this season are some of my favorites and I want to share them all with you!

            As I’ve mentioned in another one of my articles, studs are super trendy and fun for this season!  Chelsea Crockett - Studded OutfitAnything such as shoes, pants, shirts, and accessories always look better with a little shine!  People have gotten really creative and even tried studs on their nails and phone cases!

            Prints such as cheetah and snakeskin are yet another thing you’ll see throughout almost any fashion magazine.  Even patterns such as spots or stripes are hot in Hollywood.

           Chelsea Crockett - Two Toned Pants Like denim’s not enough, coated denim is a stylish and chic trend.  For those of you that are unsure of what coated denim is, it’s a pair of denim pants that almost have a light shimmer overcoat.  I love these pants because they can be dressed up and can add a little bit of shine to your outfit!   

            And lastly, two toned clothing is super stylish and highly fashionable.  These pants are extremely cute because you can make them your own by adding fun shoes and accessories!

            I hope you all are rocking these trends this upcoming fall!

            Hey insiders!  Although I’m mostly a makeup girl, I love, love, love trying out new polishes and designs on my nails.  In my last Buy & Try video, I mentioned a couple nail polishes that I tried out and absolutely adored!  Since school’s almost here, I’m going to suggest a few of the best colors that’ll make you pop this school year.

            One of my new favorite brands of nail color is called “Starrily.”  The coolest thing about these polishes is that they are homemade.  Their colors are also super fun, unique, and great quality.  Most of the polishes look like glittery confetti and are very bright and colorful, which I love!  If you want more of a simple look, they also carry solid polishes that are just as cute.Chelsea Crockett - Starrily Nail Polishes

             A really big trend of the summer has been bold, colorful nails.  I’ve seen many celebrities almost everywhere mixing bright pink and blue polishes with a duller look to add a pop to their outfits.  Although it was a summer trend, I think bringing it into the school year is a perfect way to catch peoples’ attention on your first dayWink!

             And of course, you can’t forget the naturals.  Grays, tans, and whites are a timeless trend when it comes to nails.  Adding a topcoat of shimmer or sparkles will still give you that fun look you want but at the same time, it keeps it simple.  Enjoy!

                                                            Love, Chels

Hi Girls,

            Celebrities are known for doing crazy things!  Whether it’s making headlines for a scandalous movie role or debuting a new look, celebrities are always in the news!  Lately, crazy hair trends and dramatic hair changes have been all the buzz in Hollywood.  I’ll break down Chelsea Crockett- colored hairsome of the craziest celebrity hair dos and hair trends around!

            Celebrities like Katy Perry are notorious for bright colored hair.  You never know what hair color is going to make its way down the red carpet.  I don’t recommend dying your beautiful hair to green, blue, or purple.  Plus, it’s terrible damage to your hair!  Another crazy hair trend is Bohemian braids.  This is when one side of your hair is tightly braided while theChelsea Crockett- short hair other side is down.  Kind of crazy looking! 

Miley Cyrus has been in the headlines for her dramatic hair change.  Her beautiful brown hair is no more!  Celebs, like Miley, have been chopping their hair off for a more “edgy” look.  How could you cut such beautiful hair?!  It’s fun to see all of these looks come to life in magazines and on the big screen, but not realistic.  Keep your pretty natural hair! Kiss

Love,

3 Secrets to Growing Your Hair Long and Strong

Hey darlings!

Do you ever get frustrated with having short hair? Do you get tired of waiting months and months for it to grow to the length you want? Today I am going to fill you in on the three secrets of growing your hair long and strong! 

Tip#1:

Take vitamins! Vitamins give your hair strength which helps prevent breakage. When your hair starts getting split ends, it causes it to break off and get shorter. Vitamins also strengthen your immune system which promotes hair growth. A supplement I recommend is Biotin, which is a naturally occurring B-vitamin. It renews the follicles and roots of the hairs that are already growing. It gives you thicker, fuller, and healthier hair!

 Tip#2:

Drink lots of water! Drinking water increases the amount of moisture in your hair. Water makes up approximately one fourth of the weight of a strand of hair and when hair has the proper amount of water, it will respond by being strong and shiny. Also, Water is just plain healthy for you! By upping your water intake, you are making your body healthier, which will make your hair healthier.chelsea crockett water

 Tip#3:

Give yourself a scalp massage! By massaging your scalp, whether it is in the shower while you are shampooing or just sitting on the couch watching TV, Can increase the blood flow throughout your scalp and stimulate hair growth! chelsea crockett shampoo

So are you all ready to take the leap and try out these awesome tips? I know I am! Comment below and tell me which one of these tips you think will work best for your hair.

 

Love ya!

Summertime Skin Tips

            Hey ladies!  Keeping your skin healthy is a daily struggle for girls year round, but during the summer this task seems even more difficult.  As we all know, there are lots of products to try out on our skin to reduce unwanted breakouts.  But what we don’t know is that there are many things we can do in our everyday routine to reduce our imperfections.

            Chelsea Crockett - WaterSince it is summer, most of us will be spending the majority of our time outside in the high temperatures and hot sun.  Be sure to get very comfortable with H2O.  Water helps maintain the moisture in our skin and body.  Our body needs at least eight glasses of water to stay properly hydrated.  If you’re a soda or coffee drinker and need your daily boost of caffeine, you’ll need to triple the amount of water you drink!

            Because summer is a time for fun in the sun activities, make sure you apply (and reapply) sunscreen!  Some of us think we only need to apply sunscreen once and we’re set for the day.  But studies show that to have full protection, we must apply every hour and a half to two hours.  If we don’t, the result will be a sunburn.  Sunburns damage the molecules in our skin and produce redness, pain, swelling, and sometimes peeling.  Another negative is that they make you feel hot and tired, and who wants that?Chelsea Crockett - Exfoliating Skin

            Another quick tip is to exfoliate your skin.  Doing this gets rid of the dead skin on your face.  If you don’t get rid of it, it sets on your face making it look dry, dead, and dull. 

            Hope this helps you get glowing and healthy skin!

            Hey girls!  Going to the beach this summer?  If so, you’ll need to know the hottest beach wear trends.  From sunglasses down to your flip flops, you can be dressed in the cutest looks from head to toe.

            Chelsea Crockett - SunglassesAs far as sunglasses go, there are many different styles and shapes to try out.  One type that’s always in style is the Wayfarer.  The classic oval shape is also timeless and you can rock it with any look.  You can find some here:http://tiny.cc/WayfarerSunglasses!  Don’t forget to throw a pair in your favorite beach tote!  Speaking of totes, finding one isn’t hard.  You can purchase a simple beach bag at a nearby Target, Macy’s, or even JC Penny’s.  Roxy and Billabong are two other shops that carry super cute totes and bags as well.

            A beach day wouldn’t be complete without your favorite swimsuit and cover up.  Target carries many fashionable swimsuits from a regular triangle style to a strapless bandeau top.  Chelsea Crockett - SwimsuitOther stores such as Victoria’s Secret and PacSun also have a wide variety of colorful and fun swimwear for you to show off at the beach.

            Although most of your time will be spent in the water, running around in the sand, and working on a nice tan, you can’t go without a good pair of sandals.  DSW sells a large amount of sandals, flip flops and wedges and features some of the best designers such as Steve Madden, click here and see!  

            I hope you consider these tips next time you take a trip to the beach.  Enjoy!

Happy summer Insiders,

                If you’re like me you, then love late summer nights.  Hanging out with my girlfriends, making videos, and watching movies are just a few things that keep me up all night.  It’s always a great time, but I started losing more and more sleep.  I started looking into the benefits of sleep and now force myself to sleep more.  It’s SO good for you!!  The term “beauty sleep” is actually a real thing.  Getting 8-9 hours of sleep a night reduces dark circles under your eyes and reduces wrinkles.  Many studies also suggest that you will live longer.  Who doesn’t want that?!  As well as looking more beautiful and living longer, getting enough sleep can improve memory and creativity.  This can help with school or making YouTube videos, like meLaughingChelsea Crockett- sleep.  If you’re an athlete, it can help with your performance level.  If you’re not happy with your game, then get some sleep!  Along with all of these amazing benefits, getting enough sleep can help you maintain a healthy weight.  You’ll be more beautiful, fit, and have more attention with a good night of sleep.

                Goodnight 😉

            Hey insiders!  Whether you’re trying a natural look or a colorful one, you’ll need a pop of color to fully complete it.  As for me, I am never specifically set on a certain shade.  If I’m going for a more subtle look, I’ll finish it off with a clear or light pink gloss.  If I’m feeling a little more adventurous, I use a red or hot pink color which is fun and will be sure to turn heads. 

            With summer here, one of my favorite glosses is the “Kiss of Cherry” fruity lip care by Nivea which I talked briefly about in my May Favorites 2013 video.  It has an SPF of 15 which comes in handy during a day outside or at the pool.  It also moisturizes your lips and gives them a smooth feel which is definitely a plus!Chelsea Crockett - Red Lips

            Another shade that I can throw on with almost anything is a raspberry shade.  It’s a fun color that highlights those rosy cheeks.  It blends with any look and gives off a bright summer shimmer to your sun kissed skin!

            Hope this helps you next time you’re looking for a pop of color to your daily makeup!

            Hey girls!  We all know how much I love trying out new hairstyles and what’s a better time than summer?  Whether you wear it up or down, there’s always a cute and stylish way to show off those beautiful locks!

            One of the first looks I go to is the messy or high bun.  They’re easy to throw up and work with any outfit.  One of the best things about a bun is that it’s okay for them to look messyWink.  Just throw it up and wear it how you want!

            Another one of my on-the-go styles is a side braid.  Along with being super easy, you can make it your own by doing the many different styles there are.  Fishtailing and French braiding are just a couple ideas on how to make your braid fun and unique!

            Chelsea Crockett - Beach WavesLast but definitely not least, are beach waves.  I absolutely love this look because it gives off the summer feel and adds the beachy look to your sun kissed tan.  At almost any beauty salon you can find a spray to help give you that ocean air vibe.

            These are just a few summer styles for you to try out this season! Hope this helps!

Hello lovelies!

                Waterproof makeup is a must for summer!  You won’t want your makeup running everywhere if you’re at the pool or the beach.   I’ve found some great drugstore products that won’t go anywhere in the water.  You’ll stay looking beautiful even after a dip in the pool.  CoverGirl Natural Luxe Cream Foundation is a great base foundation that won’t come off in the water.  Your skin will look smooth and clean, while being protected from the sun.

                Maybelline has a ton of choices when it comes to waterproof makeup products.  You can find these products at any drugstore for great prices.  Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eye Shadow comes in every color imaginable and is stay proof and water proof for 24 hours.  I like to apply a white base to my eye lid before applying the eye shadow.  Choose any color you want!  I like to use an aqua blue under my eye for a pop of color.  It’s a great look for summer!  

                Chelsea Crockett- Waterproof MascaraAnother must-have for waterproof makeup is waterproof mascara.  My favorite mascara to use is Maybelline Volum’ Express Mega Plush mascara.  It takes your lashes to a whole new level by lengthening them and giving them great volume.  You’ll come out of the pool looking like you walked off the runway!

         Happy summerCool

Hey Insiders!

I love shoes. They can take an outfit from being just average to being jaw dropping. They put the finishing touches on any ensemble. Today we are going to take a look at what summer shoes are a must for any wardrobe.

     Flip Flops:

Flip flops come in so many different colors and styles that you are bound to find at least one pair that you fall in love with and that goes with everything. Whether they are silver and sparkly or neon pink with studs, you can always find a pair that suits you. Flip flops are also super comfy.  They are usually cheap, too, so you can buy a pair for every outfit 😉 Collage

     Wedges:

Wedges add class to any ensemble. They come in all heights and styles! You can get anything from peep toed to strappy sandal-like wedges. They come in anything from tribal prints to sweet pastel colors. Pair these with a cute sundress or summer skirt

Wedges1

 Strappy Sandals:

These are a good step between casual sandals and formal wedges. They can be worn to anything from school to church to a day out with friends. I especially love the sandals that have a little strap over your toe.They are unique and make a statement! Strappy sandals are a practical, comfortable choice of shoe for the summer time. They can be worn at both casual and classy events. Collage1

Your shoes tell people about you. They can be a way to express your personal style and personality. 

Strut your stuff, ladies!
