I think us girls can all agree on one thing: periods are the worst!  They’re the most dreaded time of the month that we can’t do anything to stop.  Not only do periods come with mood swings, cramps, and a lot of other dreaded symptoms, but acne and pimples start to pop up all around our face, too!  Period breakouts are tough to battle, but here are some tips that can help!

The days before:  It’s all about prevention.  Chelsea Crockett - Clay MaskWhen your period is near, there’s not much you can do besides trying to stop the breakouts from coming!  First comes first, avoid clogging your pores at all cost.  Make sure you take off your makeup before going to sleep and avoid touching your face a lot.  If you feel a pimple building up under your skin, try out a clay face mask to get rid of it for you!    

During:  Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse!  Keeping your face clean from oils and dirt will aid in preventing hormonal breakouts.  So, make sure you’re thoroughly washing your face in the morning and at night and getting rid of any makeup or oil!

The days after:  After your period has finally come to an end, your skin should hopefully go back to its original state.  The toughest part of your battle is over!  The only thing I suggest is sticking to a daily skin routine to prevent random breakouts and to keep your skin under control.

I hope these help you have clearer skin during your time of the month!

A detox diet may seem like a perfect way to drop a few pounds. You might cleanse for a day, or multiple, to quickly lose some weight. There’s controversy on whether or not these diets are actually benefitting or hurting our bodies. After doing some research, I made a list of pros and cons to bust the myths about detoxing. So you can decide for yourself!

If you’re unfamiliar with the term, detox dieting is when you limit your intake to only fluids, vegetables, or fruit for hours or days at a time. One of the most popular ways of doing so is a juice cleanse. The purpose of these is to flush out or cleanse your body of any wastes or toxins, resulting in quick weight loss.Chelsea Crockett - Fruit

PROS – For the positives of detoxing, I can state the obvious: quick weight loss, eliminating toxins, cleansing your system, etc. If you limit your diet to solely fruits and vegetables, you’re bound to drop a few pounds within your diet. Any diet that reduces fattening, sugary, or processed food can positively affect your body, as long as you’re careful and do it the right way.

CONS – You might be thinking, are detox diets even necessary? The answer is no. Your body already has functions to get rid of any toxins or waste your body doesn’t need. They also aren’t recommended for teens since our bodies are still growing and need the nutrients and proteins.

So you decide for yourself! If you want a quick jumpstart on your diet, try it out! But if not, I suggest sticking to exercise and healthy eating :).

Detox baths are not only good for the body but for the soul as well :)! Some people unaware of the benefits and dangers of detox baths may not ever try one, or may even overuse them. I wanted to share a little insight on the pros and cons of detoxing. The power of a detox bath can be stronger than you think!

Let’s start with the benefits. To put it in one sentence, detox baths improve your health and well-being. Detoxification is crucial for your body, Chelsea Crockett - Detox Benefitsespecially your immune system. It eliminates toxins and other wastes that your body doesn’t need. Because our environment is continuously getting dirtier and more polluted, the amount of toxins in the air is increasing. Our body gets rid of wastes on its own, but detox baths can help speed up and enhance those processes!

Although detoxing is good for the body, it can potentially be harmful, as well. The saying “too much of anything can be bad” can definitely be applied here. Taking one of these baths should not be done daily. About 1-3 times a week is the recommendation based on your body. Since your body is working hard to rid itself of toxins, you may experience light-headedness or dizziness.

If you’ve never tried a detox bath, I recommend you give it a shot! It’ll help flush out any of the “yuck” you might have in your system!
