How to Properly Clean Your Beauty Tools

We’re always told to keep our beauty brushes and other tools clean and free from bacteria.  That being said, we’re not always told the best way to do so.  And if we pay $30 or more for a brush, we don’t want to ruin our high quality tools by washing them the wrong way!  Here’s a little guide on how to wash your beauty tools properly!

  • Beauty Blender/Beauty Sponge.  Any tool that has a spongey texture to it can be tough to clean, especially because they hold so much moisture.  Not only do you need to run it under water, but pick a cleansing solution to use as well.  Squeeze your beauty blender gently while rinsing it with water but also adding in the cleansing solution.  Chelsea Crockett - Cleaning BrushesThis will help clean out any bacteria or makeup deep into the sponge.  Make sure you are being gentle or else it could mess up your blender!
  • Eyelash Curler.  It may’ve never crossed your mind, but eyelash curlers actually have a large amount of buildup from mascara, eyeliner, etc.  If you’ve ever tried cleaning it before, then you know it’s not the easiest thing to do!  Either heat it up with a lighter or soak it in hot water.  If you start this way, the makeup will slide right off when you use a tissue, cotton, etc.
  • Foundation Brush.  For cleaning brushes, make sure you use a cheap cleanser or one that you don’t use anymore.  Any type of cleanser will make for the perfect soap to eliminate any buildup on your brush.  Apply the cleanser and rinse your brush under warm water.  Set it flat on a paper towel instead of setting it up to dry to make sure your brush stays it original quality!

Follow these tips to keep your beauty tools clean and free from makeup buildup!

If you’ve been up-to-date with my YouTube channel, then you’ve probably seen my video about which skincare products I’m going to take to college with me.  All of the products I featured in the video were purchased from Target, so they’re not super pricey but still good quality!  Here are some of my favorite skincare products that you can try for yourself!

  • Clean & Clear Facial Cleanser Makeup Dissolving Wipes.  Sometimes I get very lazy and don’t have the energy to go through my entire night routine. Chelsea Crockett - Clean & Clear If this is the case, I’ll use one of these wipes to remove all of my makeup, dirt, and oil of my face before I go to bed!
  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Scrub.  This stuff is my absolute favorite!  It has a citrus fragrance that is so refreshing and gives me a burst of energy to start my day.
  • Garnier Micellar Water.  If you’ve never heard of micellar water, you need to try it!  It works as a facial cleanser, makeup remover, or simply a skin hydrator.  It leaves my skin feeling so refreshed!
  • Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream.  I love this product to help get rid of puffy morning eyes.  This will definitely be helpful for early morning classes once school starts up again!
  • Aveeno Moisturizer.  Aveeno moisturizers are super hydrating and great for your skin (especially the Positively Radiant moisturizer with SPF 15!).  They have multiple different kinds to suit whatever your skin type may be!

I hope you enjoy these products and get the most bang for your buck while doing so!

Love, Chelsea

Who knew that the same substance that puts a little pep in your step could do the same for your skin! Little did I know that coffee can actually remove the upper layer of dead skin and also provide your skin with antioxidants that help boost circulation and brighten your skin. Here is how to use coffee to cleanse your skin.

What you will need:c6587519c86899ecc348189fb49579ee

  • Coffee grounds
  • Face cleanser
  • Olive oil or coconut oil

One way to use coffee to cleanse your face is to mix coffee grounds with your usual face cleanser. Wet your face and neck, then massage the mixture into your skin. Leave it on for about 5 minutes, and then rinse it off. You can also make a cleanser from olive oil or coconut oil and coffee grounds. Mix a teaspoon of warm olive or coconut oil with coffee grounds and use it to exfoliate on your skin. Use it all over your body for soft, smooth, rejuvenated skin!

These cleansers are every coffee lover’s dream!

XOXO, Chels

Hey insiders!

             As teenagers, we all go through it.  Acne, oily skin, and unwanted breakouts are all things we have to put up with.  Luckily companies such as Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, and Olay have invented several products to help moisturize and disappear acne and dry or oily skin. Chelsea Crockett - Face Products

            Many lotions and moisturizers are good for dry skin, but often leave residue making your face look and feel oily.  Olay’s Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion is perfect for moisturizing dry skin.  It does the job without leaving a super shiny finish on your skin!

A lot of face washes and cleansers tend to make your face appear cleaner, but really don’t cleanse it fully.  Clean & Clear’s Morning Burst Hydrating Facial Cleanser washes deep into your pores and removes any dirt or oil on your skin.  It’s oil-free and perfect for sensitive skin.  Its morning burst leaves your skin feeling extra fresh to start the day!

As for pop-up pimples and surprise breakouts, Neutrogena’s Naturals Acne Spot Treatment is just what you need.  You can put this on your acne during any time of the day.  It dries clear, so you don’t have to worry about when and where you apply it.

Get Rid of Unwanted Acne!

Hi Insiders,

            Having acne can be really depressing.  You always wash your face and take care of your skin, and yet, the acne doesn’t stop popping up everywhere!  Will it ever go away?! Yes.  There are multiple cleansing techniques and a few special ideas I have for you to get rid of your pesky acne once and for all! 

            As soon as you feel a break out coming, act on it!  Immediately start dabbing a spot treatment that contains salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or both.  This will help calm down the infected area.  One of the biggest mistakes people with acne make is they pick at it.  DON’T!  This creates scaring and makes the acne stay longer.  Let it run its natural course.  The pimple will eventually go down and smooth over.  If you pick at it, a scabChelsea Crockett- Michael Todd Cosmetics Acne Control will remain in that area for a while.

            Unfortunately, some of us have acne that decides to cover our whole face…it also doesn’t go away.  Make sure to wash your face twice a day with face wash that contains acne fighting ingredients.  Try using a concealer that contains salicylic acid so it treats while it covers.  Also, before going to sleep, place a hot towel over your face.  This will open up your pores and allows for oxygen to get deep down in your skin.  Talk to your dermatologist if the acne isn’t going away.

            Once the acne starts to go away, don’t stop doing your normal acne routine!  You want the acne to stay away.  If dark spots from your previous acne are still noticeable, reach for a treatment with brightening ingredients like licorice or soy.  This will lift up the skin and leave your face glowing.  Don’t be discouraged if acne starts to appear.  It’s normal and so many people are fighting this battle every day!   

Love,

            Chelsea

Hi Lovelies!

            I’m sure you’ve all heard me talk about or use Michael Todd skincare products in my YouTube videos.  Michael Todd skincare and beauty products are top of the line made with all organics.  You won’t have to worry about breaking out or being allergic to anything you use.  I have sensitive skin myself, and these products are perfect!  

           Chelsea Crockett- Michael Todd Pearl and Silk Mask I recently got the Organic Pearl and Silk Mask.  It’s an extremely gentle mask that leaves your skin feeling clean and soft.  With the help of the pearl, the mask hydrates dry skin and the silk leaves dull skin looking brighter!  After applying the mask, my skin felt cool and tingly.  I could feel the mask cleaning out my pores.  After the mask had been on for 10-15 minutes, I washed the mask off with a wash cloth and my normal cleanser.  My skin was glowing and felt so soft.  It felt cleaner than ever! 

            Michael Todd also carries other masks including the intense Charcoal Mask for deep cleansing, the Pumpkin Mask to replenish your skin with the nutrients it needs, and the Avocado Mango Mark for extreme hydration for dry skin.

            Another great product by Michael Todd is the Charcoal Scrub.  It’s a deep cleansing scrub that goes beyond the pores.  After one use, my skin felt cleaner and smoother.  I have really oily skin and noticed that each day I used it, my skin felt less oily and fresher.  I didn’t feel the need to wash my face 100 times a day.  Michael Todd products have made my everyday face washing routine simpler.  My skin has never looked better and your skin will feel the same way!     

                                    Happy skincareLaughing
