Oily Skin? Try Charcoal!

Hi Insiders,

I’m sure you’ve seen your dad light up a grill using charcoal for a yummy dinner.  Even though it’s great for grilling steaks, did you know it can actually help get rid of oily skin?  Sounds crazy, right?!  Beauty experts have found that charcoal has been proven to be able to suck dirt, oil, and acne causing bacteria right out of your skin.  It’s a skin clearing secret weapon.  It’s a fast and effective way to get the skin you’ve always wanted.

One of my favorite products of all time is the Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Cleanser.  It really gets in my pores and gets all the dirt out.  Since I have really oily skin, it’s the perfect product for me!  It’s really cleared up my acne.  Another great product is the LUSH “Dark Angels” Fresh Facial Cleanser.  LUSH is made with all organic products and is so fresh and natural.  The “Dark Angel” cleanser is a powdered charcoal mix that when mixed with water creates an all-natural charcoal treatment. Chelsea Crockett- Michael Todd Charcoal

Don’t be afraid to branch out of your normal facial routine and try a charcoal based product.  Your skin will be brighter and cleaner in no time.  I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

XOXO,

Chelsea

What You’re Doing Wrong to Your Skin

Hi Insiders,

            It’s hard not to “repin” a beauty mask on Pinterest that will get rid of acne once and for all.  Let’s be real, we’ve all done it and even tried it!  There are so many beauty products and remedies out there that claim to be “the best” for your skin.  So how do you know that your beauty regime isn’t hurting your skin?!  Truth be told, there are a lot of beauty products and/or remedies that may be doing more harm than help to your skin.

  • Lemon juice has been a topic of debate in the beauty world recently.  In the long run, the powerful acid may be slowly damaging your skin.  It breaks down the skins acidChelsea Crockett- sunscreen mantle, which blocks the skin from bacteria that can cause acne and/or infections.
  • Use sunscreen!!  This is one of the biggest beauty mistakes you can make.  Sun spots from overexposed skin to the sun can leave you looking older than you are.  It also protects against skin cancer.
  • Applying too many different products to your skin can cause breakouts.  Your skin does not know how to react to an overhaul of product causing irritation and confusion to your skin.  Try one product and a time to make sure it cooperates with your skin.
  • Just because you have oily skin doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use products with oil in it.  If you over wash your face and use acid based products to get rid of oil, your skin will just produce more oil.  Use a safe balance of both oil and acid when cleansing your face.

Love your skin and treat it properly!

XOXO,

Oily skin is totally obnoxious, am I right? What I didn’t know is that there is a super quick, easy way to help combat oily skin! When I discovered it I knew that I just HAD to share it with you all! Check it out, all you will need is:

–          Cotton balls

milk of magnesia chelsea crockett

–           Milk of Magnesia

 

Milk of Magnesia is found in drug stores and is often used to combat stomach aches. This item can be used as a primer before applying makeup, but watch out because it tends to cake up if not smoothed out, or it can be used as a facial mask. If your face is crazy oily then add more coats. Just pour some Milk of Magnesia onto your cotton ball and spread it on your face for 15 minutes. After the time has passed and the product has dried, then scrub it off with warm water and soap! Easy, right?

If you are feeling super oily, try this product on for size!

XOXO, Chels

Hi Ladies,

            Beauty masks are one of my favorite beauty remedies.  If you haven’t already, it’s easy to fall in love with a certain mask.  I was even able to get rid of my acne thanks to the Michael Todd Kaolin Clay Mask.  Whether you have dry or oily skin, acne prone or clear skin, there’s a mask out there for everyone.  Here’s all you need to know about one of the beauty world’s favorite product.

            Masks work wonders!  If you have dry or sensitive skin, a hydrating mask is perfect for your skin type!  You don’t want a mask with a harsh texture that could act as a scrub, because that will only make your skin drier.  A hydrating mask will smooth out your skins top layer and add moisture to even the driest skin.  It will also leave your skin brighter, getting rid of redness.  The purpose of a hydrating mask is to replenish the natural oils in your skin.    Chelsea Crockett- Michael Todd Kaolin Clay Mask

            If you have oily or combination skin, you’ll want to stay clear from a hydrating mask.  Instead, go for an exfoliating or clay mask.  The minerals in this type of mask will leave your skin feeling soft, but dry it out a little to get rid of the oil.  This type of “drying out” is okay for your skin and is an important step in getting rid of excess oil.

            Be sure to incorporate facial masks into your weekly beauty routine.  I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Love,

            Chelsea

Pinch Some Pennies on Primer!

Hey ladies, how many of you like to save money? I know that money is tight with a lot of families right now, so I thought I would fill you in on an amazing money-saving tip that I just discovered. Let me tell you about this amazing tip.

 How many of you use makeup primer before applying your foundation or powder? I am guessing most of you do. Primer helps get your skin ready for your foundation by smoothing out your complexion and reducing the size of your pores. It also helps your makeup to stay on longer. The only problem with using primer is the price. Primer can be a bit costly, and if you use it often it can really add up. I was browsing Pinterest and I came across an article about how women are starting to use Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as their primer, and are LOVING it! I became curious and started browsing for more info. They say that the anti-chafing gel leaves their skin smooth and makes their pores appear smaller. They also say that by applying the gel before they put on foundation and powder, it helps keep their makeup on longer and keeps their skin from becoming oily for a long time. Anti-chafing gel is actually used in primers and BB creams to help them stay on longer.Chelsea crockett primer 2

            I was so excited to try this out! I went to my local Walgreens and picked up a box of the Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel for about 6$. It is usually located near the tampons and such. I came home and applied a little bit to my skin before applying my foundation and powder, and was amazed! The gel really does make your skin smooth and it really does keep your skin from becoming too oily! I totally recommend this product to any of you ladies who either have oily skin or just want to keep their makeup lasting all throughout the day.

 

Give it a try!

XOXO, Chels
