I know for me, I can never have too many tips on how to beat acne.  It’s something that I struggle with day-by-day and I’m sure a lot of you do too!  Sometimes all we can do is look to the pros for some professional tips and advice.  Here are a few ways to beat acne fast by people that know what they’re talking about!

  • Always, always, always wash your face before bed.  If you can’t find enough motivation to do this, at least take off your makeup.  Bacteria, dirt, and oil can sit in your pores overnight and cause much bigger problems to your skin than you think!
  • Don’t over-wash your face.  Yes, washing your face is crucial, but washing it too much can actually have the opposite effect!  It can leave your skin dry and brittle which will hurt your skin and make it start to flake.
  • Leave your pimples alone.  If you continue to pop your pimples or pick at them, they can get very irritated, very fast.  If you simply leave them alone, they’ll go away at their own pace without pain or scarring!
  • Keep oil-absorbing sheets in your purse.  Oily skin can be one of the most annoying things.  It makes it harder for your makeup to stay on and leaves your skin looking overly shiny.  Keep a few oil-absorbing sheets in your purse to blot off any excess oil!

Hopefully these are some good tips that help you in your times of breakouts!  I know they helped me! 🙂

Concealer is one of the best beauty tools in the world.  You can hide your tiredness by disguising dark circles or conceal stubborn pimples that won’t go away.  It color corrects, brightens, and evens out your skin to give you the perfect foundation for a beautiful face of makeup.  With that being said, we should know what we’re doing wrong with our concealer to guarantee that we’re making the most out of our product! 

  1. Rubbing in your concealer with your finger.Chelsea Crockett - Naked Concealer  It may be gross to think about, but our fingers are covered in dirt, oil, and lots of bacteria.  Our fingers also don’t absorb any of our concealer like a beauty blender would which leaves it feeling caked on.  A beauty blender will blend it evenly and leave you without creases or streaks!
  2. Using the same concealer for all your blemishes, dark circles, etc.  Although this isn’t necessarily the wrong way of doing it, you can get much better coverage by using differently textured concealers.  For dark circles, try using a thicker concealer such as a cream based one.  As for pimples, try using a light, liquid concealer!  
  3. Applying your concealer first as your base.  Although you may be anxious to cover up those zits as soon as you wake up, you won’t get your best coverage by starting with concealer.  Apply your foundation first, then apply your concealer!

What mistake are you making?  Now you know what to change when it comes to applying concealer!

I think us girls can all agree on one thing: periods are the worst!  They’re the most dreaded time of the month that we can’t do anything to stop.  Not only do periods come with mood swings, cramps, and a lot of other dreaded symptoms, but acne and pimples start to pop up all around our face, too!  Period breakouts are tough to battle, but here are some tips that can help!

The days before:  It’s all about prevention.  Chelsea Crockett - Clay MaskWhen your period is near, there’s not much you can do besides trying to stop the breakouts from coming!  First comes first, avoid clogging your pores at all cost.  Make sure you take off your makeup before going to sleep and avoid touching your face a lot.  If you feel a pimple building up under your skin, try out a clay face mask to get rid of it for you!    

During:  Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse!  Keeping your face clean from oils and dirt will aid in preventing hormonal breakouts.  So, make sure you’re thoroughly washing your face in the morning and at night and getting rid of any makeup or oil!

The days after:  After your period has finally come to an end, your skin should hopefully go back to its original state.  The toughest part of your battle is over!  The only thing I suggest is sticking to a daily skin routine to prevent random breakouts and to keep your skin under control.

I hope these help you have clearer skin during your time of the month!

Eliminate Pimples in 60 Seconds

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, pimples pop up at the worst times.  I’ve always wished I could just say the word and they’d disappear!  Obviously, I can’t give you the tips to do that, but I can share with you a few ways to get rid of or cover up pesky pimples!

  • Take an ice cube and wrap it in a paper towel.  Hold it on the pimple for 30-60 seconds to disappear any redness or swelling!  If need be, apply it for a longer about of time to keep eliminating any swelling.
  • Some makeup artists even say to add irritation relief eye drops to the area using a cotton swab.  This will also bring down any unwanted redness! Chelsea Crockett - Powder Foundation
  • If your pimple is flaky or scabbed over, take a pair of tweezers to softly remove any dead skin.  Apply a small about of moisturizer or repair balm to soothe the area.
  • Powder, powder, powder!  After applying your foundation, add some powder to the area of your breakout before applying concealer.  This will help it stick so you can avoid having to reapply throughout the day!
  • If you have aspirin at home (which let’s be real, who doesn’t have them lying around everywhere?), you can make a paste by adding one aspirin to a teaspoon of water.  This will make a paste you can apply to the aggravated area.  Wait till it hardens and wipe it off with a warm washcloth!

Hopefully this helps you out next time you have an unexpected pimple pop up!

Top 5 Skin Maintenance Rules

To the girls who have naturally clear skin: I envy you! Girls like me who have to work to have clear skin long to have your gorgeous “I woke up like this” façade. According to experts, there are a few “rules” that you need to follow in order to get fabulously flawless skin. Here are those very rules so you know NOT to break them!

  1. SPF all day every day: Wear a minimum of SPF 15 on a daily basis. This will help prevent skin damage, wrinkles, sunburn, and skin cancer.FullSizeRender (13)
  2. Get your <3 pumping: Exercise isn’t always the most fun activity on the planet, but when you get that heart pumping you are delivering oxygen to your skin! Plus, you are burning calories and toning that fab figure.
  3. Say no to cigarettes: Not only is smoking terrible for your health in general, it is also horrible for your skin. Smoking causes your lung capacity to decrease, which causes decreased oxygenation of your tissues and gives your liver too much work to do to process the toxins. This causes your skin to dehydrate, stop glowing, and become inflamed.
  4. Don’t pick at zits: If you pop your pimples, you can cause them to scar! The best way to zap a zit is to put an ice cube wrapped in a cloth on your pimple for a minute.
  5. Exfoliate: This can help get rid of acne scars and also allows skin products to absorb better and work more effectively!

These are just a few things experts say will help you get gorgeous skin. Seems easy enough, right?

How to Get Rid of Acne While Sleeping

Sleeping makes up a large part of our day. Teenagers are supposed to get a recommended 7-9 hours of sleep a night… That’s a long time if you think about it so why waste it? Acne can be improved over night using certain ingredients and products. Make use of your time and treat your skin while you sleep using these simple tips :)!Chelsea Crockett - Spot Treatment

  • Spot treatments are good for drying up breakouts and acne overnight. Apply it carefully so the rest of your skin stays moisturized and hydrated! You can find these for a cheaper price at most local drugstores like the Neutrogena one on the right. I promise you these are worth it!
  • Instead of actually buying a spot treatment, use aloe vera to calm down your skin! The reason your skin is breaking out is because it’s swelling and becoming inflamed. Aloe vera soothes your skin and reduces redness. Apply it on your acne before you go to sleep and let it work its magic!
  • Of course, we’ve all heard of the toothpaste trick. Apply a white toothpaste (not a gel) to your acne or pimple to dry it out while you sleep.
  • Eggs aren’t just for eating. You can use egg whites by whisking them and applying the ingredient to your irritated area. You can even use them for reducing acne scarring! It’s a two in one solution!

I hope this helps you out! – Chelsea
