The phrase “poor college student” is no joke. Between paying for classes and books and room and board and other essentials, college can really do a number on the ‘ole bank account. When you are tight on cash, usually the last thing on your mind is eating healthy. I mean, eating healthy is expensive compared to the $1 cheeseburger you could eat instead. Actually, eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. Here are a few ways to still eat healthy, even when you are tight on cash.

  1. Meal prep: This is a big thing now-a-days. Prepping your meals ahead of time saves you money because you aren’t _6877107tempted to go out to eat because you already have your meal made! So, have fun making a few healthy meals with your roommates and then pack them up in separate containers to use for lunches and dinners for the rest of the week.
  2. Use a coupon: I know pulling out a coupon at the store may make you feel toootally uncool, but trust me when I say that I actually think people who use coupons are smart and I want to be like them! Saving money and eating healthy is a great combo. Checking the store ad before heading out to shop helps you see what produce is on sale that week.
  3. Only buy organic when it is necessary: Eating organic food is an awesome way to avoid pesticides and GMOs, but most of the time organic is considerably more expensive. Buying organic foods that would normally have a high amount of pesticides is the best way to go about it. The foods that normally have high amounts of pesticides are apples, celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, grapes, and blueberries. Focus on buying organic options of these items, and don’t worry about buying organic for your other produce.

Eating healthy and staying on budget doesn’t have to be hard!

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!

When we think of being healthy, we usually think of what we’re putting into our bodies. We think about our healthy diet or amount of exercise we do daily. Yes, our body is thanking us for doing both of these things, but what we put on our body should be of our concern as well! Organic makeup is healthy, skin-friendly, and lacking any toxic, unwanted ingredients!

  • Ecco Bella. Ecco Bella is one of the most organic makeup brands I’ve read up on. Not only do they lack gluten and all types of preservatives, but their products exclude dyes and even water as well!Chelsea Crockett - Ecco BellaChelsea Crockett - Ecco Bella
  • Pure & True. This brand frees their products from any artificial fragrances or coloring and many other unknowingly harmful ingredients. Their products are luxurious and made with natural materials from the earth.

Girls with sensitive skin know the ultimate struggle. Finding products that won’t break your skin out can sometimes seem near impossible! All natural or organic products are the best, and sometimes the only, way to go for those with sensitive skin. Here are some pluses and positives to all natural products!

  • Sensitivity. The main reason, which already stated, is that organic ingredients in these products will help avoid irritation. Less breakouts, reduced redness, smoother skin… sign me up!
  • Earth-friendly. The ingredients in all natural products are manufactured organically, making them healthier for your skin and the planet! They reduce the amount of chemicals in your face products that would normally go down the drain or in the air.Chelsea Crockett - Organic Makeup
  • External and Internal. Organic products not only help to clear up your breakouts or reduce blemishes, but also do wonders under your skin. I read online that they increase collagen production, which is the protein that keeps your skin’s firmness and elasticity. So while your face is clearing up, your skin will be thanking you as well!
  • Compatibility. Natural products adapt better to your skin and are safer to use. Surprisingly, the skin is the largest organ of the body. It’s healthiest to use products that match well with your skin, steering clear of any negative side effects!
  • Chemical-free. With organic products, you don’t have to worry about any nasty chemicals being applied to your body. Most are naturally manufactured without any use of chemicals or toxins.

What types of natural products to you use? Let me know below and I might just try them out myself :)!
