When you hear of lipstick, most of you are probably used to wearing or seeing the classic colors like hot pink or red.  Lately, a new trend of lipstick colors have arrived and I love them!  Between light pink, lavender, and light coral, pastels are the summers hottest lip colors! Chelsea Crockett- light pink lip

Pastels can be tricky to wear.  Since the color is so light, it shows everything…I’m talking about dryness and cracked lips.  Before trying on a pastel lip color, be sure to exfoliate your lips.  If you don’t have lip scrub, try rubbing a damp washcloth in a circular motion on your lips.  This is an easy way to get the effects of a lip scrub.  Pastel lipstick can also wash you out.  Since most of us are tan in the summer, trying out a pastel lip color during the summer months is ideal!

If you’re going to try a pastel lip, don’t wear a pastel outfit.  This is where most people go wrong!  Try wearing cream, white, and nude colors to offset your lipstick!  This way, your outfit will still be light without being too “matchy”.  Be daring this summer with a pastel lip!  Who knows, maybe you’ll start a new trend in your town!

XOXO,

Say Adios to Dry, Flakey Lips

We’ve all been victims of it…dry, flakey lips.  They’re the worst!  You pile on layers and layers of Chap Stick, and still, NOTHING!  So how can you beat the dreaded winterized lips?  I promise there is a way!

            Start off by trying not to lick your lips.  A lot of people think that when they’re lips get dry, then they need to lick them.  Wrong!  This will actually end up drying out your lips more since it is removing your lips natural oils.  Another way to have soft lips is to apply chap stick the right way!  Go for a lip balm that says “moisturizing” or “medicated”.  These types of balms hold moisture in, while repairing the damage.  For extra protection apply a wax or petroleum jelly seal over the top to really set the balm.

Lip scrubs are a great quick fix.  The sugar crystals will gently remove the dead skin, while the oil will replenish moisture and create a soft surface.  Just be sureChelsea Crockett- lip scrub not to over exfoliate.  You don’t want to create sensitive lips!  Get rid of the pesky winter lips by taking care of them the right way!

Love,

Chelsea

Did you know you could “winterize” your skin? Neither did I! Winterizing your skin is getting it ready for the cold, dry winter months. Let me explain! 

1. Lavish your Lips! During the winter months, your lips can get dry and cracked. I’ve got a few ways to keep those kissers nice and moist! The first tip is to keep a good quality chapstick on hand. I recommend Burt’s Bees, because it is natural and high quality! My next tip is to take a soft bristled toothbrush and gently brush your lips with it. Instant exfoliation! After you have brushed your lips, smooth some chapstick over those babies.how-to-treatcure-pleeing-lips

 2. Skip the Steamy Shower! Okay don’t freak out, but hot showers can really strip your skin of moisture! Now I’m not saying take showers that are the temperature of Alaskan ocean water, but maybe turn the heat down just a tad. When you take super-hot showers, it causes your blood vessels to dilate which results in water loss through your skin! So turn those temps down, ladies!

 3. Sensitive skin? Avoid Tap Water! Do you have really dry, sensitive skin? Then listen up! Tap water can contain harsh minerals that are especially drying to the skin. Every state’s water contains different minerals, some harsher than others. To be safe, you can use clensing pads to clean your face, and if you feel your face really needs some TLC, wash it using bottled water.

 I am SO ready for fall and winter, and your skin will be too! Do you have any advice on how to winterize your skin? Comment below and fill me in!

XOXO, Chels
