I think us girls can all agree on one thing: periods are the worst!  They’re the most dreaded time of the month that we can’t do anything to stop.  Not only do periods come with mood swings, cramps, and a lot of other dreaded symptoms, but acne and pimples start to pop up all around our face, too!  Period breakouts are tough to battle, but here are some tips that can help!

The days before:  It’s all about prevention.  Chelsea Crockett - Clay MaskWhen your period is near, there’s not much you can do besides trying to stop the breakouts from coming!  First comes first, avoid clogging your pores at all cost.  Make sure you take off your makeup before going to sleep and avoid touching your face a lot.  If you feel a pimple building up under your skin, try out a clay face mask to get rid of it for you!    

During:  Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse!  Keeping your face clean from oils and dirt will aid in preventing hormonal breakouts.  So, make sure you’re thoroughly washing your face in the morning and at night and getting rid of any makeup or oil!

The days after:  After your period has finally come to an end, your skin should hopefully go back to its original state.  The toughest part of your battle is over!  The only thing I suggest is sticking to a daily skin routine to prevent random breakouts and to keep your skin under control.

I hope these help you have clearer skin during your time of the month!

How Your Body Changes From Your Teens to Your Twenties

Are you ever curious about what will happen to your body in the future? I hear women all the time say “I wish I had the same metabolism as I had when I was your age” or “I wish I could have my 20-year-old body back!” So, what really happens to a women’s body as we get older? Here is how your body changes itself from a teen to a woman.FullSizeRender (26)

  1. The brain: Even in your teens and twenties, your brain is still developing, especially the frontal cortex which is responsible for decision making, judgments, short-term memory and risk taking.
  2. Your periods: One of the biggest changes is your menstrual cycle. As you move from your teens to your twenties, your cycle will become more regular and your hormone levels will also become more regular. Another development is the possibility of worsening cramps. Doctors have found that during your twenties are when cramps hit their peak because of high production of a hormone that prompts uterine contractions (which cause the cramps).
  3. Your skin: Your collagen levels, which cause softness in skin, are at their peak when you hit your twenties. One bad thing about growing up? The possibility of adult acne. Even if you rarely had acne in your teen years, there is a chance that you could develop acne later in life.
  4. Your weight: As you pass out of your teen years and into your twenties, your fat deposits will shift. Studies say that the under-the-skin fat in your cheeks, neck, boobs, and lower legs begins to shift and move to your waist, under your butt, and on your abdomen.

Now none of these changes are anything to worry about, they happen to every woman and are proof that our bodies are always changing, even when we think they aren’t! Love your body at every stage, because it is the one God gave you. J

5 Hacks for Making Your Period Better

Ladies, our time of the month is never fun.  It’s annoying, painful, and sometimes we even have to plan things around it!  It’s just a part of life that we have to deal with.  That being said, there are certain things we can do to make them a little less awful!  Here are 5 hacks that will make you think differently about your period.

  • Buy a heating pad.  Heating pads work wonders when it comes to cramps. Chelsea Crockett - Exercise I suggest getting one that doesn’t have a cord so you don’t have to deal with the hassle.  Most are microwavable so they’re quick and easy!
  • Cut out the caffeine.  Caffeine can cause your body to retain more water which will make your bloating worse than it already is.
  • Start taking Advil/Ibuprofen two days before your period starts.  Your body starts releasing hormones a couple days before your period actually begins.  Stay ahead of all of the cramps and pain!
  • Exercise, exercise, exercise.  When you work out, your body releases hormones called endorphins that make your body feel good.  They work on canceling out the bad hormones from your period!
  • Go to bed early.  Periods often cause fatigue which leads to long, tiresome days.  A little extra sleep is never a bad idea!

Let me know what hacks you use for when you’re on your period!
