Freckles are just about the cutest natural beauty feature a girl can have! Freckles make you look youthful, in a good way! They make you look cute and innocent. A lot of times, though, our foundation and other makeup can work against our freckles by covering them up! If you want to flaunt your freckles but don’t want to throw out wearing makeup, get the best of both worlds! Here’s how:tumblr_mp0gjeg3Oy1qfi5nqo2_500

Draw attention to them: Want to show your freckles off and draw attention to them? Use a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. Smooth it on to even out your skin tone while still allowing your freckles to shine through! Add a little blush to complete the look.

Don’t take attention AWAY from them: Caking on your makeup and wearing it heavy on your lids can really distract from your God given gifts. Let those freckles be free! Wear subtle makeup like mascara to enhance your natural beauty.

Brown smokey eye: Play up your freckles with a subtle smokey eye! Take brown liner and smudge it on your top and bottom lash line for a smoldering, freckle intensifying look!

If you have freckles, let em shine!

XOXO, Chels

Ridiculous beauty routines and stories are all over the internet these days!  “Don’t do that, it’s bad for you” or “Do this, it’ll make you younger” are often seen as headlines for almost every idea or product that’s ever been sought out.  It can get exhausting; but no worries Insiders, I’m here to break some of the toughest beauty myths out there.  It’s time to get some answers!

  1. “Use petroleum jelly to make your lashes grow longer.” FALSE. There are many products on the market that aid in eyelash growth, but this isn’t one of them. Use of petroleum jelly can actually clog glands in your eyes leaving them in discomfort or infected!
  2. “Toothpaste will help take care of a breakout.” FALSE. I can assure you that using toothpaste on a zit will not get rid of it. Instead, it will dry out your skin and could lead to irritation.
  3. “Products that make my face feel cool or tingly are good!” FALSE. Chances are your skin is trying to fight off irritation. This can eventually lead to swelling and inflammation.
  4. “Skin never adapts to facial products.” TRUE. As long as you apply products that make your skin clear and healthy, those products will never stop working.
  5. “Dark spots are just from old age.” FALSE. Dark spots and most freckles are caused by damage to the skin from overexposure to the sun. In order to keep your Chelsea Crockett- frecklesskin in tip top shape, make sure to apply SPF!

Mysteries solved!

Love,

When you start to think about it, freckles are weird.  They’re little brown spots on our skin that have a higher concentration of melanin than the rest of our bodies.  Some have them, some don’t.  Some love the, some hate them.  Some have them in the summer, but not in the winter.  Let’s get down to the truth on these crazy little specks we call freckles.

Freckles are a beautiful thing!  They make each person unique and their own individual.  Freckles often fade in the winter and get darker in the summer due to sun exposure.  When the skin is exposed to too much sun, your skin reacts by forming specks of melanin, otherwise known as freckles.  If you notice they are appearing rapidly, it might be a good idea to stay out of the sun for a little while.  If you don’t like your summer freckles, you can help prevent them by wearing sun screen, a hat, and clothing that covers your skin.

Although freckles are typically harmless, some can turn out to be dangerous.  It’s important to know your skin!   If you notice a freckle that is oddly shaped, different in color, or keeps randomly appearing and disappearing, get it checked out by your doctor ASAP!  Better safe than sorry!  If you don’t like your freckles, remember that you are unique and that’s what makes you beautiful.  You’re one of a kind!

I love you all!
