Girls either love camping or hate it.  I, for one, loving being outdoors especially if I’m hanging out with my friends and family!  Although it’s super fun, it can take a toll on my hair and skin when I’m outside for all hours of the day.  Here are some ways to keep yourself clean and healthy!

  • Dry Shampoo.Chelsea Crockett - Dry Shampoo  I know that when my hair feels gross, I feel gross.  Having dry shampoo with you wherever you go is always a necessity!  It’ll make both the feel and appearance of you hair 10x better.
  • SPF Moisturizer.  As you know, you should always, always moisturize.  But having a moisturizer with SPF protects you from the sun and is good for your skin!  Might as well kill two birds with one stone, right?
  • Baby Wipes.  If you don’t have a way to shower where you’re at, pack some baby wipes to clean yourself off with.  It sounds weird, but it’s a good way to clean off if you don’t have access to a shower!
  • Wave Spray.  If you’re having that bad of a hair day, get your hair wet and spray it with wave spray.  You can still have fabulous waves even if you feel like you’re not having the greatest hair day!

Hopefully these hacks help you out next time you take a camping trip, especially if you’re not a huge fan of it ;)!

The Importance of SPF Makeup

Especially during the summer, we’re all used to hearing “make sure you wear sunscreen!” or “don’t forget to reapply!”  But half the time we just rub it off our shoulder or pay little attention to it!  But what about makeup that has SPF included in it?  Does that actually get the job done when it comes to protecting our skin?  Keep reading to find out!

Most sun damage comes from everyday sun exposure, not just those few days you spend at the pool.  Think about the times you take your dog for a walk, go outside for a run, or even step outside to get the mail.  Your skin is exposed to the sun’s rays whether you realize it or not and you need to be well prepared! You can go about this in either one of two ways.  You can find a foundation with a built-in SPF that works perfectly for you!  You might be thinking that it would be hard to find a product that works just as well as your regular foundation and protects your skin at the same time, but almost all of your favorite brands have products that offer the best of both worlds!Chelsea Crockett - SPF Makeup

As for the other way you can go about skin protection, simply get a moisturizer that has a built-in SPF.  This will both hydrate your skin and protect it when you’re in the sun.  This is a good option for those of you that don’t normally wear foundation or other face makeup regularly.  By doing this you’re still getting the SPF protection you need without using harmful sunscreen chemicals on your skin. 

After getting a little more knowledge about SPF makeup, are you going to try it out?  Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Coconut oil is the Jack of all trades. It can literally do EVERYTHING! You can cook with it, use it for household cleaning, bake with it, and even use it in your beauty routine! After reading this article you are going to want to run to the store and grab you a jar, I guarantee it.

  1. Moisturizer: I keep a jar of coconut oil by my sink and use it as lotion for my face and body when I get out of the shower.
  2. Makeup remover: Like I said above, I keep a jar of the oil by my sink. At the end of the day, I just scrape a little out of the jar and rub it on my eyelids and under my eyes, and use a tissue to wipe my makeup off. It works sooooo well, and it doesn’t irritate my eyes like other makeup removers!
  3. Shaving cream: Slather some coconut oil on your legs as shaving cream! It will melt right on your skin, and it will leave your legs feeling ultra smooth afterwards.
  4. Toothpaste: Yup, this is even good to use to clean your teeth! There are tons of DIY coconut oil toothpastes out there, and it is much better for your body than store bought toothpaste.

All-natural is the way to go! Plus, when you use coconut oil in your beauty routine, you end up smelling slightly like coconut, which reminds me of the beach, so that is always a plus!

Now is the time to take your makeup routine from soft and dewy to matte and rich. Summer makeup is all about soft tones, sheer coverage and natural vibes. Fall is about rich hues, smoky eyes and trendy tones. I’ll fill you in on how to transition your makeup routine from summer to fall! All it takes is a few minor switches.

  1. Start with the lips. During the summer I love wearing pink and coral colored lip shades. This fall opt for sheer, translucent stains of plum or burgundy. Last year’simages lip trend was opaque oxblood, but this year it is a little more subdued. There is also a trend of wearing unique lip shades such as navy, but I don’t know if I am ready to tackle that one!
  2. Next follow up with the eyes. Trade out neutral shadows with this year’s hottest eye trend: crimson. Create a smoky eye with crimson and russet tones.
  3. Figure out the finish. Summer makeup is dewy and makes your face glow, where as usual fall foundation has a matte finish. This year, avoid the “flat” look by using foundations and powders that allow your natural complexion to show through.
  4. Make your moisturizer count. In the summer you sweat a lot and the humidity keeps your skin moist. Cooler times call for different measures. Cold temps dry out your skin, so use creamy cleansers and moisturizers to make sure your face gets the moisture it needs! No one likes flaky skin on their face.

The transition from summer to fall makeup is completely painless! Easy peasy.

I have been a flying fiend recently! I spend lots of time on planes. If you are planning on doing some traveling any time soon, then you are going to want to read this article! I have listed a few of my beauty travel tips I use when I am traveling. Moving to Cali for college means flying to school, then flying home for breaks and to see my family, so these beauty tips will come in handy these next few years.aveeno-daily-moisturizer-ictcrop_gal

  1. Exfoliate pre-flight: The day before you fly, make sure to exfoliate. This will get all of those yucky dead skin cells off of your skin, and will also prepare you for #2 on this list.
  2. Moisturize it up: Flights can do a number on your skin. So, after you exfoliate, moisturize to the max! Also moisturize the day of your flight.
  3. Go easy on the makeup: The trick is to keep it light! You want to be comfy when you are traveling, and wearing a lot of makeup can make getting comfortable quite difficult. Keep it light, keep it comfy!
  4. Be ready to touch up: Odds are, after a day of traveling, your eyeliner is going to smear, your eyes are going to look tired, and your foundation is probably going to be smudged or cakey. Keep some highlighter and powder with you to brighten you up!

Safe travels!

If you’ve been up-to-date with my YouTube channel, then you’ve probably seen my video about which skincare products I’m going to take to college with me.  All of the products I featured in the video were purchased from Target, so they’re not super pricey but still good quality!  Here are some of my favorite skincare products that you can try for yourself!

  • Clean & Clear Facial Cleanser Makeup Dissolving Wipes.  Sometimes I get very lazy and don’t have the energy to go through my entire night routine. Chelsea Crockett - Clean & Clear If this is the case, I’ll use one of these wipes to remove all of my makeup, dirt, and oil of my face before I go to bed!
  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Scrub.  This stuff is my absolute favorite!  It has a citrus fragrance that is so refreshing and gives me a burst of energy to start my day.
  • Garnier Micellar Water.  If you’ve never heard of micellar water, you need to try it!  It works as a facial cleanser, makeup remover, or simply a skin hydrator.  It leaves my skin feeling so refreshed!
  • Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream.  I love this product to help get rid of puffy morning eyes.  This will definitely be helpful for early morning classes once school starts up again!
  • Aveeno Moisturizer.  Aveeno moisturizers are super hydrating and great for your skin (especially the Positively Radiant moisturizer with SPF 15!).  They have multiple different kinds to suit whatever your skin type may be!

I hope you enjoy these products and get the most bang for your buck while doing so!

Love, Chelsea

Research shows that sunscreen can benefit your skin by wearing it every day, not just when you’re at the pool. There are tons of different everyday sunscreens whether your skin is oily, dry, sensitive, etc. You may only be outside for 5 minutes, but sunscreen can benefit your skin in more ways than just protecting you from harmful rays!

  1. For sensitive skin, Clinique offers a mineral sunscreen that is fragrance free and less irritating than other sunscreens. Chelsea Crockett - Coola SunscreenYou won’t have to worry about breaking out or having a negative reaction when putting sunscreen on your face.
  2. For oily skin, Neutrogena has a dry-touch sunscreen that is oil-free and won’t clog your pores. It’s lightweight and leaves you with a clean finish. As long as you find an oil-free product, you should be set!
  3. If you rely on organic skincare, Coola has the perfect products for you. All of their products are eco-conscious and prevent harm to your skin and the environment!  
  4. For dry skin, find a sunscreen that is considered a moisturizer, too. This way you can tackle both dry skin and protection from the sun!

Which product is your go-to sunscreen? With summer in full swing, I may have to give it a try!

If you’re like me, then your morning and nightly face routine mas multiple steps.  Of course, nothing comes easy when it comes to getting your face prepared for makeup or sleep!  If you put on more than one product, it’s important to put them on in the right order.  I know it can be easy to throw everything on at once, but you’ll start to notice a different when applied properly!Chelsea Crockett- face products

Serum is best used as the base.  It’s a sort of primer for other products to come.  If you use spot treatment, put that on next and rub it in very well.  Then, you can apply all over treatment.  Continue with your normal moisturizer, letting it dry fully.  End the process by applying SPF.  This step is so important for healthy, youthful skin!

For your nightly routine, begin with serum, retinol, or any prescription products given.  After, apply targeted treatments such as rich eye cream for dark circles.  End the whole process with moisturizer and hit the hay!

It may seem like a process, but it’ll be so worth it once you start seeing results!

Everyone knows that vitamins are good for your body, but did you know that they are good for your skin too? Research says that vitamin E is awesome for your complexion! I’ll explain.

 

1. It treats acne scars:

Vitamin E oil can help those pesky acne scars fade away! If you gently massage the oil into your scars in a circular motion, the oil will penetrate deep into your skin and repair the tissue at the source! It can also be used to help remove stretch marks

2. Anti-aging:

Because vitamin E oil is packed with powerful antioxidants, if it is regularly applied to your skin it can help smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent the chance of wrinkles forming in the future! By adding this oil to your skin routine every day, you can prevent future wrinkles? Count me in!

3. Makeup remover and deep cleanser:

Add this oil to a cotton ball and rub it all over your face. This will cleanse your skin of all the dirt and grime that has accumulated on your skin, as well as remove your makeup!

 

I don’t know about you, but I’M adding vitamin E oil to my beauty regimen!

Keep Your Skin From Cracking This Season

 I hope you are all having a lovely fall as we start transitioning into the cold and windy days.  Ice cold temperatures and fierce winds can really take a toll on your skin, especially if your skin is extremely delicate.  Cracking and red patches are very common in the winter months and can leave your makeup looking drab.  The results of this weather change can also leave you looking more tired, for moisturized skin creates the illusion of being energized.   Follow a few of these simple steps to keep your skin looking radiant despite the harsh winter weather.

Try a moisturizer without an alcohol base.  Many drugstore moisturizers have alcohol as an ingredient.  Although lotions are supposed to moisturize, alcohol actually creates the opposite effect.  Try using an all-natural moisturizer made with natural oils such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, and hemp seed oil.  These natural oils can create a thick exterior, shielding your skin from the harshest of winds.  Another way to keep your skin feeling its very best is to wear minimal makeup.  You mustBeautyliciousinsider- Coconut Oil always allow your skin to breathe!  Over applying makeup to those stubborn red patches from the wind can only make it worse…plus, it doesn’t look very good!  Try only wearing cover up foundation and leaving dry patches makeup free.  It’s important that the pores soak up any moisture try can and allow oxygen in.  The last way to have moisturized skin is the simplest.  Drink LOTS of water.  Your skin is made up of about 10-20% of water.  When you are dehydrated, so is your skin.  Keep your skin happy and crack free by drinking a fair amount of water each day.

Don’t worry if your skin becomes difficult for the next couple of months.  It’s normal!  Make sure to be kind to your skin and give it the proper treatment it deserves.  Moisturized skin makes for a happy face!

All of these Michael Todd moisturizers are organic and perfect for the cold months!

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!

Having clear, healthy skin is an automatic self-esteem booster!  Unfortunately, maintaining clear skin can be a challenge.  It’s almost impossible to keep zits off our faces!!  Luckily, there are things you can do in your everyday life to keep pimples away and clear skin in the forefront.

  1. Establish a daily morning and night routine. This routine should consist of a complete face wash followed with moisturizer.
  2. Keep greasy, oily foods to a minimum. Your skin reacts by producing zits when you consume these types of foods.
  3. Make sure to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night! “Beauty rest” is the real deal!
  4. Try incorporating healthy skin foods into your diet like fish, avocados, pomegranates, and tomatoes.Chelsea Crockett- eat healthy for your skin
  5. Go without makeup! Whenever you’re having a lazy day, take a break from makeup and never wear it to sleep. Your skin needs to breathe every once in a while.
  6. Try not to touch your face. Your hands carry dirt and oil that should stay off your face!
  7. Always wear sunscreen. This will keep your skin looking youthful longer.
  8. Exfoliate a few times a week! Your skin needs a good deep cleaning every so often.
  9. Never over wash or over moisturize your face. Your skin creates natural oils that are healthy for the skin. If you are constantly washing them off, then your skin will react by creating more oil. Yuck!

If you live by these skin conscious rules, then you’ll be on the right track to clear, healthy skin all the time!

Love,

Chelsea
