Face masks can hydrate your skin, dry out your skin, clear up your skin, etc.  But are they really all they’re cracked up to be?  Some people swear by face masks and use them almost daily.  Others say that most are overrated and can be a total waste of money.  Here are some true and false myths that will help you decide for yourself!

Myth #1: Face masks are harmful to your skin.Chelsea Crockett - Face Mask  TRUE and FALSE!  Too much of anything can be bad for your skin.  This rule applies to face masks.  Although they can be super beneficial, don’t use one multiple times a day!

Myth #2: Face masks have little to no actual skincare benefits.  FALSE!  Most masks actually do benefit your skin.  They can help hydrate it, eliminate oils and dirt, or simply boost its radiance.

Myth #3: You can make your own DIY masks that are just as beneficial.  TRUE!  There are tons of different mask recipes on Pinterest that you can make right at home that are great for your skin!

Myth #4: Using a face mask every day is a good thing.  TRUE and FALSE!  Depending on the type of mask it is, it can either dry out your skin or moisturize it.  For example, if you’re using a clay mask every day, it could really start to dry out and damage your skin!

Lemme tell ya… cold weather can be rough on the skin!  As soon as the temperature drops, my face starts getting drier and drier.  I’ve tried different products that have worked for my skin type and others that have made it even worse.  I’ve found a few DIYs you can do at home that actually make a difference and cost almost nothing!

  • Egg yolk on your face might not sound like the most pleasant thing, but egg yolk contains proteins that help with shedding skin!  Mix together a teaspoon of olive oil and two egg yolks.  Apply the mixture to your face for about 5 minutes and rinse it off with warm water!Chelsea Crockett - Lemon Face Mask
  • Mix together a teaspoon of sugar and the juice from half of a lemon.  The sugar works as a scrub to remove any dead or flakey skin.  The lemon juice helps promote skin growth which leaves your pores smooth and glowing!  Scrub the mask on in a circular motion for about 10-15 minutes.  Then rinse it off!
  • Dry skin doesn’t only appear on your face.  If you have problems with dry skin on other areas of your body, put a cup of sea salt in a warm bath and relax in it for 20 minutes or so!  If you repeat this process 2 or 3 times a week, your skin will be detoxed, smooth, and hydrated!

If you are one who suffers from dry skin, you already know how annoying and unpleasant it can be. Whenever I notice it starting to appear on my body, I sometimes get self-conscious and want to hide it as much as I can! There are several ways you can beat dry skin and get rid of it. Below are a few of my favorites!

During the summer, we tend to dry our skin out by laying in the sun or swimming daily. Obviously, you can eliminate most of your dry skin by simply moisturizing with lotion. But over-scented lotions can sometimes dry your skin out even more; so, be careful with what you’re applying to your skin. Also, keep a healthy, balanced diet. By eating your daily fruits and vegetables, you’re getting the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to keep your skin hydrated.

Chelsea Crockett - Avocado Face MaskExfoliating is a big part in getting rid of dead skin AKA dry skin! Different exfoliating scrubs will do the job just fine as long as you apply it gently. Too rough of a scrub could end up hurting your skin instead of actually helping it! If you don’t have any scrubs at home, apply Vaseline! Other home remedies that are a little bizarre, are adding bananas or avocados mixtures to your dry patches. There are many recipes online that say what to include in your homemade mixture. Pick your favorite and go from there!

Lemme know how it goes :)! -Chels
