Winter can really do a number on your skin. It can dry you out and do not-so-pretty things to it. Plus, it can feel itchy and uncomfortable and flaky. Want to know how to give your skin the attention it deserves this winter? Read on!

  1. Give your lips some love: Winter can cause your lips to become more and more chapped and dry. One way to care for your lips is to use a lip scrub on them. Get all of that yucky dry skin off! This also moisturizes your pout.beauty-neutrogena-400x400
  2. Deal with dry skin: Don’t try and cover up your dry skin with makeup. Deal with it at the source! Exfoliate the dead skin off of your face before you apply makeup. It will get the flaky skin off. Moisturize after you exfoliate for maximum dry skin
  3. Moisturize often: Moisturize several times a day to prevent the dry skin mentioned above. Make sure your moisturizer has sunscreen in it to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer.
  4. Body lotion: Apply body lotion in the shower to lock in the hydration! Towel off in the shower and then slather on your lotion. I also like to use coconut oil on my skin after a shower to fight dry skin.

Hopefully these tips keep your skin happy this winter.

As you all know, I have looooong locks. Sometimes I like to try out DIY shampoos to give my hair a break from all of the harsh chemicals in regular shampoo. Want to tone down frizz and help your natural waves shine through? Try this DIY honey shampoo! Here are a few of the benefits of using it:

  • Do you have dandruff? The pH of honey is the same pH of your scalp, so it balances it out and fights dandruff?
  • Honey moisturizes your hair and since it doesn’t strip your hair of its natural oils, your hair will be softer with less frizz!

Ingredients1 honey

  • Raw honey
  • Filtered water
  • A few drops of essential oils

Make the shampoo fresh each time to prevent it from spoiling. The ratio is as follows: 1 Tbs. raw honey and 3 Tbs. filtered water. If you need to, heat the mixture over very low heat to help dissolve the honey. Add essential oils if you want to have some good smellin shampoo! Wet your hair, then massage a little of the shampoo into your scalp and then distribute it all over your hair. Let it sit, and then rinse it out!

 

Get ready for soft, healthy hair!

XOXO, Chels

Wash Your Face…The RIGHT Way

Hi Insiders,

            So you wash your face twice a day right?  Your skin looks and feels clean, but you get the occasional acne.  Unfortunately, most teens are not washing their face the right way leaving behind tons of dirt and oil.  Follow a few of my simple tips to have your cleanest and brightest skin yet.Chelsea Crockett- makeup cloths

  • It’s easy to rush through a face wash, especially when you’re in a rush or just want to go to bed.  Although it may be hard, take your time!!  Spend a few minutes really rubbing in the cleaner to your skin.  You have a days’ worth of dirt and oil on your skin, so spend more than a few seconds!
  • While washing your face, use lukewarm water.  Too hot of water can cause dry skin.
  • Don’t overuse makeup wipes!  These wipes are meant for short time use, like quickly reapplying makeup or wiping off the sweat from the gym.  Be sure to follow up with water and soap.  Makeup wipes can’t remove everything by themselves.
  • Moisturize!  It’s so important to moisturize to avoid dry skin.  Moisturizing at night is the most important, since your skin has a lot of time to soak in all of the nutrients.
  • Be gentle!  A lot of people think the best way to clean your face is with a harsh scrub or pressure with a wash cloth.  These things can irritate the skin and cause redness.  Only use these methods a couple times a week.

Love your skin and treat it properly!

Keeping your hair moisturized is one of the most important things you can do for it. It keeps you ends from becoming dry and brittle and splitting. There are a lot of leave in conditioners out there, but the only problem is that you don’t know what kind of chemicals are in them! Here is a recipe to make your own leave-on conditioner for cheap, AND you know exactly what is going into it so you don’t have to worry about nasty chemicals.mixology-spray-380x260

Leave in conditioner is actually really easy to make, and it is so much cheaper than buying it. Fill an empty spray bottle with 1 part conditioner and 4 parts water. Shake it up to mix it all together. Spray the mixture onto your damp hair when you feel like it needs some extra TLC.

See? How easy was that! Now YOU can make your very own leave-in conditioner!

Ladies ladies ladies…No shave November may be underway, so razor bumps aren’t a huge issue at the moment. Although they are not top priority at the moment, it is always good to know how to avoid those obnoxious, annoying bumps for good. Here are some tips on how to prevent razor bumps!

 

-Don’t shave every day

Don’t shave so often. Let your hair grow out a bit before shaving it again. Give your bumps time to heal and use the razor every other day at the most.

Shave under the warm shower and rinse off with cold water

Warm water will soften your hairs and make your skin less prone to irritation. When you are done shaving, cold water will close up the pores, which prevents infection and irritation.

-Use a shaving cream

Shaving cream will moisturize your skin as well as soften your hairs, making them easier to shave. Bumps appear more easily when your skin is dry and prone to irritation. Also, moisturize after you shave because it will reduce redness and irritation and decrease the probability of you getting razor bumps.

 

-Always use new and sharp razors

Dull razors will irritate the skin around the hair follicle and cause ingrown hairs.  Old and rusty blades can also carry  tons of bacteria, which can be transferred to the skin during shaving. This will not help your existing razor bumps to heal! If you don’t have a new blade, always use alcohol to clean your razor.

Acne Prevention 101: Paging Dr. Chelsea

Don’t you wish you had an acne fairy godmother that could “bibbity bobbity boo” your pimples away? Well, I’m no fairy godmother, but I am pretty Beautylicious, so I think that that should count for something! I have some tips on how to help make a real difference in your skin. These little pieces of advice can make a HUGE difference!

 1. Gently clean and moisturize. Limit your shower time and use warm water rather than hot! Hot water can dry out your skin. Avoid strong soaps that strip your skin of it’s natural oils. When you are drying your face, pat it dry, don’t rub it! Also, never forget to moisturize.

 2. Eat a healthy diet. Believe it or not, what you eat can impact your skin! Be sure to eat fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins!

 4. Watch your makeup usage! Choose powder cosmetics over heavy cream products. Always remove your makeup before you go to bed, and be sure to throw away your old makeup and clean your brushes often! 3. Watch what touches your face. Keep your hair clean and off your face. Don’t rest your hands or objects like cell phones on your face because you are rubbing bacteria all over it! Yuck!

 

Like I said, I’m no super acne genius, but these tips really DO work! Give them a try!

Did you know you could “winterize” your skin? Neither did I! Winterizing your skin is getting it ready for the cold, dry winter months. Let me explain! 

1. Lavish your Lips! During the winter months, your lips can get dry and cracked. I’ve got a few ways to keep those kissers nice and moist! The first tip is to keep a good quality chapstick on hand. I recommend Burt’s Bees, because it is natural and high quality! My next tip is to take a soft bristled toothbrush and gently brush your lips with it. Instant exfoliation! After you have brushed your lips, smooth some chapstick over those babies.how-to-treatcure-pleeing-lips

 2. Skip the Steamy Shower! Okay don’t freak out, but hot showers can really strip your skin of moisture! Now I’m not saying take showers that are the temperature of Alaskan ocean water, but maybe turn the heat down just a tad. When you take super-hot showers, it causes your blood vessels to dilate which results in water loss through your skin! So turn those temps down, ladies!

 3. Sensitive skin? Avoid Tap Water! Do you have really dry, sensitive skin? Then listen up! Tap water can contain harsh minerals that are especially drying to the skin. Every state’s water contains different minerals, some harsher than others. To be safe, you can use clensing pads to clean your face, and if you feel your face really needs some TLC, wash it using bottled water.

 I am SO ready for fall and winter, and your skin will be too! Do you have any advice on how to winterize your skin? Comment below and fill me in!

XOXO, Chels
