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.

Acne Myths Uncovered

Odds are, almost every one of us has dealt with acne at some point. Breakouts can leave you feeling like having clear skin will just never happen and that it’s impossible to get rid of those pesky pimples. There are so many myths about acne out there, and what works for one person doesn’t always work for another. Knowing what is really true about acne and what is false can help you take the right steps to clear up your skin, and it can also help prevent future breakouts. Here are some common myths.

  1. Constantly washing your face prevents acne: Wrong! Over-washing your face and scrubbing it can also make you break out. It causes your skin to produce more oils because it is trying to over compensate for the oil you washed off.
  2. Acne is just for teenagers: False! When we are out of our teen years, our acne doesn’t magically disappear. The facts are that 95% of teens get acne, and 40% of adults have it as well.FullSizeRender (21)
  3. The sun cures acne: I had a friend tell me that the reason she went to the tanning booth was because it helped clear her acne. That is a myth! Sun exposure may mask the appearance of acne by tanning your skin, but it definitely doesn’t cure it! Plus, too much sun exposure can cause skin cancer.
  4. Your diet has nothing to do with acne: Many medical studies have proven that diet and acne are linked. Foods that can cause acne flare-ups are refined sugars, carbs, and dairy.

If you are having frequent breakouts, check with your dermatologist to see what your best course of treatment is! Everyone’s skin is different, so everyone’s treatment is different!

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!
