Odds are, you are a busy girl. You don’t have time to spend hours trying to get your skin squeaky clean. You barely have time to grab your face wash and scrub it on in the morning! Here are a few ways to maintain clear skin while running short on time.images (11)

  1. Eat skin-healthy foods: Eating the right foods is at the root of healthy skin. Processed foods are no good for your skin, plus they will bloat you! Eat lots of healthy foods to help hydrate your skin and keep it protected.
  2. Sleep: Being sleep deprived can cause your skin to become dehydrated. It can also cause premature aging! Want bright, healthy skin? Get those ZZZZ’s!
  3. Simplify your routine: If you don’t have time to cleanse, exfoliate, scrub, and moisturize every morning, that is totally okay! None of us do! If you don’t have time to do a million and one things to your face every day, then don’t sweat it! You can do these things when you have time. No worries!

If you are a busy bee, it doesn’t mean you have to neglect your skin care!

For a lot of people, oatmeal is just a classic breakfast food. What they may not know is that oatmeal is a classic skin treatment, too! It can be used to treat dry skin and itching, as well as to reduce redness and protect the skin against UV rays and sun damage. It can also be used to treat sunburns! Here is how you can use oatmeal to cleanse your skin:oatmeal-close-up

Take a handful of oatmeal. Make a fist around it, and run your fist under lukewarm water for about 10 seconds. You
should feel the water seeping through your fingers and wetting the oatmeal. Then, open your fist and wet the oatmeal just a little bit more. Lean over the sink, and spend about a minute massaging the oatmeal onto your face. It can get a bit messy, so that is why you should lean over the sink. Rinse the oatmeal off with warm water and pat your face dry.

If you often have red, irritated skin, then this remedy is perfect for you! If you love having clear beautiful skin, I recommend this all natural treatment!

I love when people tell me “Wow, your hair smells AMAZING!” It gives me a little boost of confidence, and who doesn’t love smelling awesome?! I know that when I smell good, I feel good. Here is a little secret on how to have the best smelling hair around, so when people hug you or somehow get a wiff of your luscious locks, you are smelling like a fresh field of daises. (Or whatever your preferred scent is 🙂 )no-51

Grab your hair brush that you use every day. Clean the hair out of it (my least favorite thing in the whole wide world).
Then, spray your hair brush with your favorite perfume. It can be whatever scent you choose! Do you have a signature scent? After you have sprayed your brush, run it through your hair. This will give your locks a light but lovely scent.

Like I said, when I smell good I feel good. Try this sneaky trick out before going on a date, out to dinner, or even before you go to school! You will be smelling good alllll day long.

XOXO, Chels

We have already discussed the minimalist jewelry trend, so might as well hit minimalist makeup as well! Minimalist makeup is pretty much defined by the “natural” look. Like the minimalist jewelry trend, less is more. Here are three must-have products to pull off the minimalist makeup trend:NaturalBronzer_TEASER_0

  1. Mascara: a little mascara goes a long way! Mascara enhances your natural features, so it is the definition of all
    natural makeup.
  2. Lip color: even if it is just a little bit of color, it still adds a little something something to your look!
  3. Bronzer: bronzer adds definition to your face, and also helps to contour your cheeks. When you are wearing less makeup, you want to define your features.
  4. BB Cream: This stuff is a lot lighter than foundation, so it is more natural looking and feeling!

Want to try for a more natural look? Try the minimalist makeup trend!

In the summer time, do you automatically morph into a mermaid? Do you spend every waking moment in the pool? If you said yes to these two statements, then I need you to grab your listening ears! The pool/ocean can do a number on your hair if it is not properly treated. Your hair can become dried out, and even turn green if you don’t care for it properly! Here are some post-pool hair care tips to keep your mane nice and healthy.

  1. Swimmers shampoo: If you are a frequent swimmer, then this is definitely a good investment. This stuff takes all of the chlorine and chemicals out of your hair so that it doesn’t turn green and totally dry out.
  2. Deep conditioner: Use this stuff twice a week if you are an avid swimmer. After you shampoo and rinse your hair, put in some deep conditioner and let it sit around 5 minutes in your hair. While it is in your hair you can shave and exfoliate so you aren’t just standing in the shower doing nothing, bored as can be.
  3. Leave in conditioner: Also a must! After your shower, spray any type of leave-in conditioner in your hair, that way even when it dries it is still being moisturized.

Moisture is a must when it comes to my water-loving Insiders! Keep your hair healthy this summer with these tips.

XOXO, Chels

Coloring your hair can be mighty pricy, especially for my blonde babes! When you get blonde highlights, they are hard to maintain and then you have to go to the salon and touch them up. In between salon visits, your blonde can start to get dull and fade. Here are some tips on how to keep your blonde as vibrant as possible!

  1. Color specific shampoo and conditioner: Color specific shampoo and conditioner can preserve your color and
    make it last longer.John-Frieda-Color-Renew-Tone-ccorrecting
  2. Purple shampoo: Yes, purple! The purple color actually helps make your blonde brighter. If your blonde turns a bit orangey or brassy, use this every other wash. It really does work wonders!
  3. Hair mask: If you want to deep condition and seal in your color, you can use a reviving mask. You can find these masks at Walmart or Walgreens! Use a mask a few times a month just to replenish the moisture to your hair and lock in the color.

Blonde babes, if you want to keep your color locked and loaded, use these tips above!

Tips For Curly Haired Insiders

How many of you lovely Insiders have naturally curly hair? I ENVY you! Curly hair is so fun and bouncy and flirty. I have some friends with naturally curly hair, and they say that it is actually quite difficult to style it and it takes some effort to get it exactly how you want it, though. So, I did my research, and I came up with a few curly hair tips for all of my curly cued Insiders out there.

  1. Don’t wash your hair every day! This may take some getting used to. The reason you don’t want to shampoo taylor-swift-long-curly-hair1every day is because scrubbing and roughing up your cuticles sets you up for major frizz and strips your hair of the natural oils, which are beneficial for all of my curly haired goddesses.
  2. Use a wide toothed comb to brush your hair when it is damp. Now, I don’t mean BRUSH it out, I mean gently comb it out. A wide toothed comb will detangle your hair while keeping your curls intact.
  3. Let your hair air dry as long as possible to prevent unnecessary volume and frizz. Blow drying and scrunching your hair can turn it into a frizzy mess, so make sure to use a diffuser if you must blow dry your locks!

Girls with curly hair wish they had straight hair, girls with straight hair wish they had curly hair, and girls with semi curly, semi straight hair wish that it would just make up its mind and pick one! What kind of hair do YOU have? Comment below and let me know!

Acne has the absolute worst timing. It decides to show its ugly face right when you need it the least. There are some girls who are naturally blessed with beautiful, clear skin. And then there are those of us who fight a daily battle with Mr. Clogged Pore. Little did I know, I have a miracle acne treatment sitting in my kitchen at this very second. It has 2010jp_bananabeen proven that banana peels can actually be used to treat acne! Here is how:

Peel a banana and cut the peel into sections. Take one section and place the inside of the peel on your acne. Rub the peel
over the skin for about 5 minutes or until the inside of the banana turns brown. Use a fresh piece of peel for each section of your face that you want to treat. Allow the banana to dry on your skin, and while you are waiting you can eat the banana! If you are going to be home for a while, let the banana stay on your skin for as long as possible. The longer it is on there the better! Repeat these steps 3 times a day for about 4 days and see results!

Who knew Mother Nature gave us such a tasty acne treatment?

It is always a sad day when my mascara finally runs out. I feel like I am wasting a perfectly good tube! That is why I was so happy to find these three uses for old mascara wands! What a shame to put a perfectly good mascara brush to waste. Here are they are!

  1. Eyebrow brush: Some mornings I wake up and my eyebrows have decided to go all “Albert Einstein” on me and tumblr_m047vxQ4621qhfby5spaz out. So, that is where my old mascara wand comes in handy. After the wand is completely cleaned of all old mascara, I use the wand to brush and style my brows.
  2. Separating lashes: Some days my lashes are total bffs; they stick together. And some days, that is NOT what I want. I want my lashes to look full, so I take my old mascara wand and comb out my eyelashes.
  3. Tame flyaway hairs: Do you ever have those times where your hair just wants to stand up straight on top of your head and do its own thing? Well your old clean mascara wand is here to be your crazy-hair tamer! Spray a bit of hairspray onto the wand and comb it over the unruly hairs.

Ask not what you can do for your old mascara wand, but what IT can do for YOU!

Did you know that there are certain hair styles that look the best with certain necklines? When you are wearing a formal dress, it is always a pain to try and figure out what kind of hair style will look best with it. No worries, I have come up with a guide to which hair styles look best with each neckline, whether it is a v-neck or one shoulder dress!

1. Strapless:When you wear a strapless gown, wear your hair all down. Curl it and pull the front back out of your eyes, but leave the rest down!

2. V-Neck: When you are wearing a v-neck dress, wear your hair half up.

3. One Shoulder: When wearing a one shoulder gown, wear a side pony on the oposite side of the strap of the gown. This balances out your look! To add some pazazz to the side pony, french briad the back of your hair and then tie it off into a ponytail.

4. High Collar: I love high collar dresses. I think they are just so elegant! When you wear a high collared dress, wear your hair completely pulled up. This allows your pretty neckline to show and doesn’t distrat any attention from your dress!

 

These tips work with any neckline, not just formal dresses! Try out these tips and see what you think!

Are you tired of crying tears of frustration when your perfectly curled locks lose their bounce after 30 minutes? One of the most frustrating things for a girl is when you spend hours curling and styling your hair, just to watch it fall out faster than you can say “Beautyliciousinsider”. Here are a few tips on how to make your curls last!

  1. Use volumizing shampoo: A great tip for girls who have thin or flat hair is to use volumizing shampoo and tumblr_m8qgvzgWPc1r44f5bconditioner to prep your hair for styling.
  2. Trim: When you have a lot of dead ends, it really prevents your hair from holding a curl. Healthy hair holds a curl so much better!
  3. Curl on unwashed hair: It may sound weird, but that is what the experts recommend! If you are curling on clean hair, you’ll need to add in much more curling cream or mousse than required, which weighs the hair down.

Hopefully these tips will have you rockin bouncy, lasting curls for hours on end!
