You may or may not have heard of the newest ice roller beauty trend.  If you haven’t, well then you’re in for a treat!  I’ve always heard that ice and coolness can help certain aspects of your skin such as dark circles, wrinkles, etc.  Here’s a little insight on why you should try it out for yourself!

As I’ve said already, applying ice to breakouts, morning under-eye bags, etc. can reduce redness and swelling.  Chelsea  Crockett - Ice RollersSo with that being said, I was super intrigued when I first heard about ice rollers.  It’s described as an inexpensive cooling therapy for your skin that is proven to result in many noticeable benefits!  Applying the coolness of an ice roller increases blood flow, which reduces redness, inflammation, and tightens your skin.

If you break it down, it’s actually a very simple product.  Ice rollers are either filled with gel or water and kept in the freezer to maintain their temperature.  They have many short and long term benefits including wrinkle and pore reduction and minimizing puffy morning eyes!  Some are as cheap as $15 while others can creep up to $70 or $80!

Ice rollers are a much bigger product in Asia and Europe than they are in America, but they are starting to make their debut!  Buy one and watch the magic happen for yourself!

I go to California often; sometimes for work, sometimes for fun. I love Cali! On my last trip for BeautyCon LA, my friends and I decided to take a breakfast trip to Urth Caffe (you know, that organic restaurant all the celebs Instagram). I was very curious to try their blended green tea drink! I immediately fell in love and looked up how to make it on my own. I want all of you to try it too! Bring Urth Caffe to your kitchen!Chelsea Crockett- matcha green tea

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Blender
  • 1 tablespoon of 100% matcha green tea leaf powder
  • 1 cup of any type of milk (soy, skim, almond, etc.)
  • 2/3 cup of ice  
  • Sugar or Stevia (optional)

It’s pretty simple. Combine all the ingredients into a blender and enjoy! You can add a few drops of mint (my favorite) or vanilla flavoring, or a banana to change it up. If you want your drink more or less “shake-like” you can add as little or as much ice as you’d like. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

XOXO,

Natural Ways to Get Rid of Scarring

            Acne, birth marks, and facial injuries can leave our skin looking a little rough.  Finally the zits have gone away, but the scars left are no fun either.  There are many beauty products that claim to reduce scarring, but these products can be expensive and usually contain a lot of chemicals.  Luckily, there are so many natural ways to reduce scarring on your own for half the cost!  By using these products you can safely reduce scarring, while not hurting your skin.

            Many scars are darker than our normal skin tone making it easy for them to be spotted.  Lemon juice, a natural bleach aid, can be rubbed on the scars to lighten the color.  Apply the lemon juice twice a day for 15 minutes before rinsing off with water.  Do this until you are happy with the results!  Ice and aloe are two natural ways to get rid of scars as well.  Although it can be cold and a little painful, rubbing ice on your scars for 15 minutes a day can help tighten the skin.  Apply ChelseaCrockett- icealoe gel to new scars to prevent permanent scarring.  You can even apply this to the scars after the ice has been removed.

If you’ve seen some of my latest videos, then you’ve probably heard me talk about tea tree oil.  It works like magic and can found at almost any drug store!  I’ve been applying it to my acne scars and have watched them disappear.  Remember, getting rid of scars does not happen overnight.  Be patient, apply the proper treatment, and watch the scars fade away.

XOXO,

Chelsea

I live in the Midwest, AKA the hottest, most humid place in the world!  It’s important that I stay cool during these crazy hot summer months.  It can become tricky once the thermometer hits 100 degrees, but nevertheless, I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve!  Check out a few easy ways to cool off this summer!

  • Fruit is the perfect summer snack! Try freezing fruits like grapes and pineapple before taking them out with you in the sun. Each bite will be icy and help cool you off!Chelsea Crockett- frozen grapes
  • If you tend to get hot at night, try throwing your pillow case in the freezer for an hour or two before going to bed. This will help you beat the summer night sweats!
  • DRINK LOTS OF WATER!
  • If you’re laying out, but don’t have a pool, bring a spray bottle outside with you! Fill the bottle with water and ice and spray it on your body for a quick cool down when the sun gets too hot!
  • Grab an ice cream cone or sno-cone with a group of friends!
  • Large amounts of blood flow through the neck which can be heated up. Try throwing a cold towel around your neck for a quick cool down.
  • Instead of taking your car to the car wash, wash it yourself outside! There’s nothing wrong with running through the hose to keep yourself cooled off as well!

Be sure to stay hydrated this summer!

-Chelsea
