Sweater weather is finally here which means cold winds and extra dry skin.  It’s hard to have that all-natural glow from summer when the temperatures are dropping… and dropping fast!  Here are a few different cold weather facial fixes that’ll transform your skin just in time for the holidays! 🙂

Chelsea Crockett - Neutrogena Skin CareMicrodermabrasion serums and treatments can make the transition smooth for brightening up your complexion! While microdermabrasion treatments are very expensive, you can try an at home device like Neutrogena’s Microdermabrasion System. It helps to boost surface cell turnover to purify and exfoliate your skin.  Neutrogena’s treatment is only $22.99 and it works wonders!  Try it out for yourself!

Another amazing facial treatment is Clinique’s Smart Treatment Oil.  It has a moisturizing anti-oxidant blend that will help your skin to repair itself after it takes a cold weather beating!  It’ll keep your natural oils locked in place. Its ingredients help you to hydrate, heal, and brighten your skin for a skin makeover.

Lastly, lip balms can give your lips some TLC from cracking and flaking. Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment is one of my favorites. It’s a chap stick that comes in all different colors from coral to wine. It’s made from vitamins C and E, beeswax, grape seed oil, jojoba, and real sugar! It also has an SPF 15 for added protection!

I hope this helps you out during the upcoming cold months! 🙂

For those of you that hate powder foundations, liquid is the only way to get the job done!  Sometimes it can be hard to find the right product that won’t sweat off after an hour or suffocate your skin.  All three of these liquid foundations are great for all skin types and are definitely worth the buy!

  • Clinique’s Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15.  This is one of my favorite liquid foundations, especially if you have sensitive skin.  There are over 15 different shades to match whatever your skin tone may be!  It’s silk-enriched leaving a smooth, balanced base on your skin.  It also controls oil and hydrates the dry areas of your face!  It’s a win-win product. 🙂 Chelsea Crockett - Clinique Foundation
  • IT Cosmetics’ Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination with SPF 50+.  If you’re looking for a light formula with good quality, then look no more!  This CC+ Cream gives you full coverage with a radiant afterglow, too.  It’s also guaranteed to camouflage any imperfections such as acne or dark spots! 
  • Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup.  If you’re willing to spend $40 on foundation, I suggest you spend it on this product!  There are over 30 different shades so you’ll be sure to find one that matches your skin tone perfectly.  It stays on for up to 15 hours so you won’t have to worry about reapplying throughout the day!  

Have you tried any of these before?  If so, give me your take on them in the comment section below!

Oily skin is something some of us are unfortunately cursed with.  It seems that no matter what we do, our makeup is already coming off an hour after we apply it!  There are some brands that offer amazing face masks that soak up the extra moisture in your pores and leave your skin feeling refreshed.  Here are a few of my faves!

Clinique is one of the best companies that caters to sensitive skin.  You never have to worry about breaking out or having a negative reaction to their products. Chelsea Crockett - Clinique Face Masks Their Acne Solutions™ Oil-Control Cleansing Mask is a clay-based mask that keeps your skin shine-free.  Clay-based masks are my favorite because you can instantly feel a change in your skin after using them.  This product has a non-drying formula that won’t irritate or dry out your skin.  You can buy it for $23!

Another face mask that helps get rid of oil and clogged pores is Boscia’s Luminizing Black Mask from Sephora.  This mask detoxes, purifies, and brightens your skin and peels off when you’ve left it on for the recommended amount of time.  It’s rich in minerals and gets rid of enlarged pores, oiliness, dullness, and uneven texture.  This product is free of artificial fragrance and color, ethanol alcohol, and gluten and can be found at Sephora for $34!

Get rid of oily skin for good by trying one of these face masks for yourself!

Research shows that sunscreen can benefit your skin by wearing it every day, not just when you’re at the pool. There are tons of different everyday sunscreens whether your skin is oily, dry, sensitive, etc. You may only be outside for 5 minutes, but sunscreen can benefit your skin in more ways than just protecting you from harmful rays!

  1. For sensitive skin, Clinique offers a mineral sunscreen that is fragrance free and less irritating than other sunscreens. Chelsea Crockett - Coola SunscreenYou won’t have to worry about breaking out or having a negative reaction when putting sunscreen on your face.
  2. For oily skin, Neutrogena has a dry-touch sunscreen that is oil-free and won’t clog your pores. It’s lightweight and leaves you with a clean finish. As long as you find an oil-free product, you should be set!
  3. If you rely on organic skincare, Coola has the perfect products for you. All of their products are eco-conscious and prevent harm to your skin and the environment!  
  4. For dry skin, find a sunscreen that is considered a moisturizer, too. This way you can tackle both dry skin and protection from the sun!

Which product is your go-to sunscreen? With summer in full swing, I may have to give it a try!

Sensitive vs. Tough Skin… How Do I Know?

You may be young and starting to enter the makeup world. Or maybe you want to switch to a new brand to save money or simply switch things up! Whatever the case may be, you need to know your skin. Buying new products can be dangerous if you don’t know if your skin is sensitive. You’re in luck because there are a few ways to tell:

  1. The easiest way to tell (obviously) is if the products you’ve already tried are accompanied by redness and stinging. Also, if you have an increase in acne and breakouts, avoid those products! Sometimes even avoiding the brand as a whole is your safest option.Chelsea Crockett - Clinique Foundation
  2. Another good, natural way to get to know your skin is to pay attention to how it reacts to the weather/sun. If your skin easily turns red and splotchy while being outside, then you’ll most likely react to insensitive products the same way.
  3. Wherever you go to buy your makeup, whether it be a drugstore or somewhere like Sephora or Ulta, a lot of products will have freebies or samples. This way you can try before you buy! If you see an immediate negative reaction, obviously your skin won’t react well to other products. A great brand for sensitive skin is Clinique. You won’t have to worry about redness or breakouts!

Good luck insiders! – Chels

Face primers can be hard to find. Some leave an oily residue and others dry out your skin! I’ve been through several products that have done just that, but luckily I have found a few that work well with my skin! Here are three that I absolutely suggest :)!

Bare Minerals is one of my fave makeup brands! No matter what I purchase, I’m almost always satisfied! Their Prime Time BB Primer-Cream not only primes your skin for makeup but helps both dry and oily skin. Since it is part BB cream, it covers blemishes and presents an even skin tone. It also contains 30 SPF so you’re prepared for your day poolside or at the beach!

For those with sensitive skin, Clinique is always your best bet! Their Superprimer Face Primers are perfect for those who worry about trying new products on their skin. Clinique makes sure their products won’t breakout your face, yet still do the job! The primer does just that and has amazing quality.

Chelsea Crockett - Smashbox PrimerAlthough this is technically a primer, I just have to throw in one last product. Smashbox’s Photo Matte Anti-Shine is a cream-gel formula that is absolutely amazing for people with oily skin. You can apply this cream before or after you put on makeup, depending on the type of foundation you use. It instantly soaks up any excess oil and minimizes your pores. It works for up to 8 hours so you don’t need to reapply continuously throughout the day!

Let me know which product is your favorite!

Fancy Facial Cleansing Blushes: A Must-Have or a Rip-Off?

If you’ve checked out any beauty or fashion magazine or website recently, then you’ve noticed all the buzz on these new fancy facial cleansing brushes.  Clarisonic and Clinique have come out with purifying brushes to keep away acne and reveal glowing skin.  At around $100 per brush, some may be skeptical.  Let’s dig deeper to find out whether these brushes are worth having or a total rip-off.

Too often, fancy and expensive beauty products do not live up to their name.  Most of the time you can find a similar product for cheaper!  Unlike most, cleansing brushes have gained praise from dermatologists and customers alike!  These cleansing brushes are powered to move in a circular motion as you move it across your skin.  It is also equip with soft bristles so it doesn’t bother sensitive skin.  These brushes are proven to reduce acne, remove blackheads, and improve the overall look of your skin by increasing blood flow to the face.Chelsea Crockett- facial cleansing brush

Using a facial cleansing brush is easy!  Add a small amount of your normal face soap to the brush and gently move it across your skin in a circular motion.  Once you have finished using the brush, be sure to rinse and let it air dry so no mildew can form.  It’s also important to change your brush head every 3 months in order to ensure it is clean and bacteria free!

If you’re struggling with your skin, give one of these brushes a try.  I can ensure you won’t be disappointed!

There’s an endless amount of different articles and websites explaining how to prevent and reduce acne. But let’s be real girls, it is NOT that easy! The harsh reality of acne isn’t so sweet. Most of the time, we tend to break out right before a special date or school pictures… Nowadays there is a wide variety of products available to help cover up your blemishes. Here are some remedies and ways to cover up and conceal those imperfections in no time!

First off, don’t try popping a pimple while you are walking out the door. This just causes more redness and swelling, bringing more attention to it. To help the swelling go down quickly, try applying cold compresses to it for about 10 minutes. Another remedy (which is a little strange but extremely helpful) is applying eye drops to your pimple. Weird, right? But it works, I promise!

SChelsea Crockett - Clinique Advanced Concealerecond, concealing your acne is a must. Make sure your face is clean and moisturized before applying your makeup, especially your concealer. You don’t want your makeup coming off only an hour into the day. One of the best products is Clinique’s Advanced Concealer. Especially for those with sensitive skin, Clinique’s concealer is excellent to cover up your imperfections. It comes in two different shades and is the perfect camouflage :). After concealing, take an eye shadow brush and dip it in loose powder that matches your skin tone. Dab it onto the area you want it. This will help the makeup stay on your skin instead of sliding off.

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

            All links to the above products are mentioned below and are definitely worth checking out!
