Dating today is completely different from what it used to be.  We now have to take into account social media, texting, and lots of other things that can cause too many problems in today’s relationships.  Here are five dating tips that can be super helpful in today’s culture!

  • Keep your communication face to face.  If you have to talk about something important or sort something out, don’t do it over the phone!  It is so important being able to talk about the deep stuff face to face instead of texting it out.  It’ll make your relationship 10x closer.
  • Don’t think too far into social media posts.  Girls are over-thinkers as it is but overanalyzing something as simple as a tweet can drive us crazy!  Don’t dwell on something as little as a post that most likely isn’t what you think it is in the first place.
  • Be honest.  I know this is kind of vague and should already be assumed, but simply be honest and open with one another!  Honesty is the best policy and it shouldn’t be overlooked.
  • Make it a point to see each other frequently.  In today’s culture, people substitute facetiming, calling, and texting for hanging out with their boyfriend or girlfriend, and that’s not okay!  Don’t let phones be the core of your relationship.
  • Be intentional.  Like I mentioned before, make it a point to talk to each other and see each other.  Go out of your way to do something nice for them occasionally, too!

I hope these tips give you some clarity on how you can lessen the effect today’s culture has on your relationship!

Love, Chelsea

Acne can be caused by a multitude of things. Anything from a bad diet to touching your face too much can be harmful to your skin. There are tons of different things we do daily that we don’t even realize are giving way to breakouts. Here are some avoidable actions that can prevent sneaky acne from showing up!

  • How many times do you use your phone a day? For me, I’m on my iPhone texting, uploading, and calling throughout my entire day. Our hands are covered in bacteria, and we transport that to our screens every time we send a text. Then we transport that to our face whenever we make a phone call! I suggest cleaning your phone every once in a while to eliminate any pesky bacteria.
  • Makeup Brushes. If you don’t make it routine to wash your makeup brushes regularly, bacteria could be hiding in them. Wash them occasionally to get rid of any built-up of bacteria.Chelsea Crockett - Makeup Brushes
  • Heavy Foundation. Caking on foundation will clog up your pores and cause breakouts. Use a lighter foundation or simply apply a smaller amount.
  • Heavy coffee drinkers beware! Coffee can throw off the pH of your skin and cause breakouts. Consume more tea as a substitute!
  • Lack of sleep. Lack of sleep is not only bad for your body and mind, but your skin as well! In order for your body to fight unwanted bacteria, get the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep!

If you’re struggling with acne and breakouts, I hope this was helpful!
