Usually when we need to shave our legs, we simply like to get the job done.  But there’s certain things that we can do to make our legs smoother, more hydrated, and better shaved!  Here are a few tips and tricks that will make you think twice about how you’ve been shaving your legs!

Before: With shaving, it’s all about making your legs as smooth as possible.  The day before (or at least before you shave), use a scrub to exfoliate.  Chelsea Crockett - Vaseline LotionThis will clear out any dead skin and leave your skin smooth for a gentle, clean shave!

During:  Before jumping in and shaving right away, wait toward the end of the shower.  The heat and moisture will loosen up your pores and allow for a better shave!  Although this may be obvious, make sure you’re shaving in the opposite direction of your hair.  Also, a gel or foam is the best product to use to prevent dryness, rashes, or razor burns!

After:  Especially when you shave, you’ll need to moisturize and hydrate your skin.  Try using a lotion that isn’t overly perfumed or includes a ton of alcohol like the one on the left.  This way you can make sure your legs are getting all the hydration they need!

If you’re not following these pointers, then I urge you to do so!  They really do make a difference!

Ahhhhh… cold weather is back again and is one of the number one causes of dry skin! Us girls need to be expecting what’s to come… cracking, breaking, and flaking are all struggles that will soon follow! There’s only one thing we can do: moisturize moisturize moisturize!

  • First off, test which moisturizer/lotion works best for your skin. If you have sensitive skin, make sure you’re careful with choosing the right product before using it religiously. Breakouts usually don’t show up right away, so be cautious!
  • Make sure to remember to moisturize 1-2 times a day (definitely twice if your skin is super dry). When you wake up, moisturize! Before you go to sleep, moisturize! Try to do it about 20-30 minutes before you go to sleep. This allows it to sink in and prevents it from rubbing off on your pillow.Chelsea Crockett - Face Moisturizers
  • Pay attention to your skin type. If your skin becomes oily easily, try a gel moisturizer. This will prevent you from getting the sweaty look that none of us want.
  • SPF is important! Just because it’s not summer anymore doesn’t mean you can’t get sunburnt. Always protect your skin from the sun! Sunburns cause breakage in your skin which dries out your pores.
  • A couple things you can do on top of moisturizing is to 1) buy a facial mask or 2) make your own DIY mask. Doing a DIY could be fun with your friends or siblings!

Do you have any tips of your own? Let me know below :)!

Cold weather can be really rough on your skin. It can dry out and get irritated and start to crack and flake. That is something that we definitely DON’T want to have to deal with, am I right? I stumbled upon a nice little homemade moisturizing concoction that I just adore and that keeps my skin healthy and hydrated all fall and winter long! Here’s how to make it:0038137003085_500X500

Ingredients:

  • 16 ounces baby lotion
  • 8 ounces solid coconut oil
  • 8 ounces vitamin E cream

Grab a mixing bowl and combine all of your ingredients. Next, use a mixer to stir all of the ingredients together. You will know it is done mixing when the consistency of the lotion looks like icing. Now you can either put all of your magic moisturizing lotion into a container for you to use, or you can put some in mason jars with cute labels and give them as gifts! Your friends will be sooo impressed with your healthy homemade lotion! Yes, this lotion is healthy! Vitamin E oil is amazing for your skin and it has anti-aging properties, and coconut oil is the same! The baby lotion and coconut oil scents combined will have you smelling super fresh and super clean.

I know what my friends are making on our next girls night.

Will YOU try this fun lotion recipe out?

Some may say a pedicure is the perfect time to relax, unwind, and get pampered.  I can agree with this.  Freshly painted toes are one of the best feelings in the world!  Unfortunately, most pedicures come at a heavy price; especially if you go regularly!  Instead of hitting up the salon every 2 weeks, try giving yourself an at-home pedicure!  It’s simple and easy; plus, your bank account will thank you!  Give it a try!

As crazy as it may sound, a milk bath is actually beneficial to your feet by smoothing calluses.  Start by filling a bowl with warm water and milk.  Let your feet soak for as long as you’d like!  Next, rub cuticle oil on each toe and start to push back each cuticle with your finger nail.  Rinse each foot and dry them off with a towel!  Now, cut back and file your nails to your liking!

Refill the bowl with clean hot water.  Using a pumice stone or foot scrub, scrub away any dry, unwanted skin.  Be sure to target your toes and heels!  Once your feetChelsea Crockett- painted toenails feel new again, rinse away the dead skin, dry your feet, and lather them with lotion!  Last but not least, pick out your polish and paint away!

Next time you’re dying for a pedicure, but don’t have the money to do so, try giving yourself one!  You may surprise yourself!

XOXO,

Hey insiders!

             As teenagers, we all go through it.  Acne, oily skin, and unwanted breakouts are all things we have to put up with.  Luckily companies such as Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, and Olay have invented several products to help moisturize and disappear acne and dry or oily skin. Chelsea Crockett - Face Products

            Many lotions and moisturizers are good for dry skin, but often leave residue making your face look and feel oily.  Olay’s Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion is perfect for moisturizing dry skin.  It does the job without leaving a super shiny finish on your skin!

A lot of face washes and cleansers tend to make your face appear cleaner, but really don’t cleanse it fully.  Clean & Clear’s Morning Burst Hydrating Facial Cleanser washes deep into your pores and removes any dirt or oil on your skin.  It’s oil-free and perfect for sensitive skin.  Its morning burst leaves your skin feeling extra fresh to start the day!

As for pop-up pimples and surprise breakouts, Neutrogena’s Naturals Acne Spot Treatment is just what you need.  You can put this on your acne during any time of the day.  It dries clear, so you don’t have to worry about when and where you apply it.

Hi Insiders!

Smelling good is definitely essential.  It feels great putting on a new perfume and walking out of the house.  Even trying new perfumes is fun!  Unfortunately over time, your sweet smell will wear off.  Lucky for you, I’ve got a few simple tips to make your perfume last longer.  Smell amazing all the time!

Rubbing in perfume on your wrists and neck are the most popular areas to spray your sweet aroma.  Although most people do this, don’t!  Instead, spray your perfume in the air and walk through it so it will stick to your clothes.  If you spray the perfume on your neck or wrists don’t rub it in.  This causes the scent to disappear more quickly.  Let it dry on the surface of your skin.  Even try spraying perfume or Febreze in your closet to make your clothes smell fresh all the time!  If your perfume comes with a lotion and gel combo, then be sure to use it!  That’s one of the simplest ways to smell amazing!Chelsea Crockett- perfume

Another great way to smell great is to use shoe spray.  Your shoes are one of the smelliest clothing items in your closest.  Have fresh smelling feet with scented odor dissolving spray!  One of the newest fragrant products is scented nail polish.  Check out your local department to have delectable smelling hands!

Smell lovely beauty gurus!Smile

            Have you ever looked into a magnifying mirror and noticed how big your pores are?  Unfortunately, people with big pores are more prone to black heads.  Black heads are pesky and can be tough to get rid of.  You can pick and squeeze them as much as you want, but they’re still there!  They seem to never go away!  Luckily by following this 5-step system, you can banish black heads for good.

            Start by taking a really hot shower which will open up pores.  As soon as you get out of the shower, start extracting the black heads by squeezing as many as possible.  It’s important to get all the dirt out.  Next, apply a thick moisturizer all over your face to hydrate and lock the heat from the shower in.  Apply plastic wrap to the worst areas, like your nose for example, and place a hot towel on top of the plastic wrap for a few seconds.  Last, wrap tissue around each pointer finger before squeezing the last of the blackheads out.  This will reduce fingernail marks and skin creases.  Apply a toner over the area to reduce oil buildup and you’re done! 

            Reducing blackheads takes time, but if you do this quick process when you start noticing them, they should eventually banish for good! 

Love,
