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! 🙂

Well guys, the time we wait for all school year is almost here… SUMMER!  I am so excited for the warm weather, sleeping in, and for lots of big plans coming up.  That being said, warm weather means lots of sun and catching some rays.  My skin can be super sensitive when it comes to picking the right facial sunscreens, so here are some of my favorites for summer!

  • Coppertone Sensitive Skin Faces Sunscreen SPF 50 ($7.49). Che;sea Crockett - CeraVe Sunscreen If you want a product that’s both cheap and effective, try out Coppertone!  Coppertone is a good brand if you have super sensitive skin.  It’s extremely gentle and won’t dry out your face.
  • Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb the Antioxidant Super Moisturizer ($17).  Garnier’s Moisture Bomb will take care of those annoying dry patches of skin that might be bothering you.  It’s not called the Moisture Bomb for nothing!
  • CeraVe Skin Renewing Day Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen ($20.69).  If you want a double-purpose cream that works as a moisturizer and a sunscreen, try using CeraVe’s renewing cream.  The sun can oftentimes dry out your skin, so having this on hand is never a bad idea! 
  • It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ ($38).  If you’re looking for a good sunscreen that acts as a foundation as well, then this is the product for you.  You can take care of your blemishes and sun protection in one step!

Is there a specific product that’s your go-to facial sunscreen?  Share with me below and I might give it a try! 🙂

Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen, was known as the most beautiful woman in the world. She was one of the first to wear makeup, use scrubs, and soak in baths. She was pampered with natural resources from the earth and animals, which you can recreate yourself!  

  • For glowing, soft skin, mix half a cup of honey, 3 cups of milk, and 5 tablespoons of olive oil and add it to a warm hot bath to soak in. It’s all about relaxation!
  • Cleopatra didn’t have primer or toner during her time, so she used rose water instead! It acts as a natural toner and primer in one! It’ll keep your skin nourished, while also helping makeup go on smoothly and last longer.
  • Vinegar circulates the blood that irritates skin. After removing makeup, try adding ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar to a sink full of warm water. Splash your face and let it air dry or healthier skin!Chelsea Crockett- henna nails
  • Ever heard of a henna tattoo? Cleopatra used henna to dye her nails! While the color wasn’t permanent, it would protect the nail and leave a long-lasting color.
  • Raw honey is skins best friend. It has antibacterial properties, slows aging, treats acne, and creates glowing skin. Try a raw honey mask!

Whoever said old people (like hundreds of years old) don’t know what they’re talking about it is totally wrong!!

XOXO,

Having a spa day at an actual spa can be extremely expensive. Of course the treatments and messages are fabulous, but can be super overpriced! A DIY spa day at home is just what the doctor ordered. Here’s what you need:

One of my favorite things to do with my mom and sister is getting manicures and pedicures. It’s fun to do every once in a while but can start to add up. By doing a few simple steps at home, you can get almost the same turnout! Start off by using a small paintbrush to apply a layer of Elmer’s glue around your nail. This way you won’t get polish on your skin, it’ll just peel right off! Also when painting on your polish, don’t only apply a clear coat after, but before too! This will give your polish a good base in order to last longer.

What’s a spa without a facial? Chelsea Crockett - Banana MaskThis is a great recipe that’s simple to make so all your friends can enjoy. As you all know… I LOVE bananas! This face mask calls for plain yogurt, honey, and a banana. Mix together a ¼ cup of plain yogurt, a couple tablespoons of honey, and a banana and apply it to your face for about 15 minutes. Rinse it off and enjoy your smooth skin :).

Do you and your friends ever have a relaxed day at home? If you do something along these lines, let me know so I can try it out myself!

Love, Chelsea

After a long summer of being in the sun, our skin could use some pampering.  A great way to relax and nurture your skin is with a DIY pumpkin facial mask!  Half a cup of canned pumpkin has 953 mg of vitamin A in it. With its wrinkle-fighting properties and tons of vitamins, this orange fruit soothes and hydrates tired skin.

Chelsea Crockett - Pumpkin Face MaskSome of us are getting older and probably won’t be trick or treating for Halloween.  Wouldn’t it be fun to have some friends over for a mini spa party?  Especially because Halloween is on a Friday this year!  Have your friends bring some snacks, you provide the drinks and the ingredients for the DIY pumpkin mask. Everyone at the party could mix their own pumpkin mask and then apply to their face!  Be sure to snap some pictures because I’m sure you’ll look awesome with pumpkin smeared all over your faces :).

Here is a recipe you could try.  Feel free to look up others online and have fun!  The ingredients you will need are: 2 cups of canned pumpkin, 4 tablespoons of unflavored yogurt, 4 tablespoons of honey, and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.  Combine ingredients, smooth onto face, and relax for 10 minutes.  Then, rinse off mask with warm water.

If you have another recipe, feel free to share it with me below!

Happy fall! – Chelsea

For a lot of people, oatmeal is just a classic breakfast food. What they may not know is that oatmeal is a classic skin treatment, too! It can be used to treat dry skin and itching, as well as to reduce redness and protect the skin against UV rays and sun damage. It can also be used to treat sunburns! Here is how you can use oatmeal to cleanse your skin:oatmeal-close-up

Take a handful of oatmeal. Make a fist around it, and run your fist under lukewarm water for about 10 seconds. You
should feel the water seeping through your fingers and wetting the oatmeal. Then, open your fist and wet the oatmeal just a little bit more. Lean over the sink, and spend about a minute massaging the oatmeal onto your face. It can get a bit messy, so that is why you should lean over the sink. Rinse the oatmeal off with warm water and pat your face dry.

If you often have red, irritated skin, then this remedy is perfect for you! If you love having clear beautiful skin, I recommend this all natural treatment!

XOXO, Chels

Acne has the absolute worst timing. It decides to show its ugly face right when you need it the least. There are some girls who are naturally blessed with beautiful, clear skin. And then there are those of us who fight a daily battle with Mr. Clogged Pore. Little did I know, I have a miracle acne treatment sitting in my kitchen at this very second. It has 2010jp_bananabeen proven that banana peels can actually be used to treat acne! Here is how:

Peel a banana and cut the peel into sections. Take one section and place the inside of the peel on your acne. Rub the peel
over the skin for about 5 minutes or until the inside of the banana turns brown. Use a fresh piece of peel for each section of your face that you want to treat. Allow the banana to dry on your skin, and while you are waiting you can eat the banana! If you are going to be home for a while, let the banana stay on your skin for as long as possible. The longer it is on there the better! Repeat these steps 3 times a day for about 4 days and see results!

Who knew Mother Nature gave us such a tasty acne treatment?

Blackheads can be such a hassle, ya know? They can make your skin so clogged and yucky. There is a way to give yourself an in-home facial that will clear those pores right up! Here is how to give yourself a facial steam!

downloadAll you need is a large bowl and some semi-hot water. Soak a washcloth in the water, wring it out, and then press it to your face. Repeat this step a couple of times. Once you are done with this, take your face and lead it towards the bowl, hovering your face over the hot water. Then, place a towel over your head to make sure no hot air escapes. The hot air will open up your pores so you can clean them out and it takes the oil and dirt build up off of your skin! Keep your head leaned over the bowl for about 5 minutes to allow the hot water to do its thing. After that, wash it with a good exfoliating face wash and moisturize!

 

Who knew getting an at-home facial could be that easy!
