You may or may not have heard of the newest ice roller beauty trend.  If you haven’t, well then you’re in for a treat!  I’ve always heard that ice and coolness can help certain aspects of your skin such as dark circles, wrinkles, etc.  Here’s a little insight on why you should try it out for yourself!

As I’ve said already, applying ice to breakouts, morning under-eye bags, etc. can reduce redness and swelling.  Chelsea  Crockett - Ice RollersSo with that being said, I was super intrigued when I first heard about ice rollers.  It’s described as an inexpensive cooling therapy for your skin that is proven to result in many noticeable benefits!  Applying the coolness of an ice roller increases blood flow, which reduces redness, inflammation, and tightens your skin.

If you break it down, it’s actually a very simple product.  Ice rollers are either filled with gel or water and kept in the freezer to maintain their temperature.  They have many short and long term benefits including wrinkle and pore reduction and minimizing puffy morning eyes!  Some are as cheap as $15 while others can creep up to $70 or $80!

Ice rollers are a much bigger product in Asia and Europe than they are in America, but they are starting to make their debut!  Buy one and watch the magic happen for yourself!

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!

How to Cover Up Stubborn Redness with Makeup

Okay so i’m going to be real with you here for a minute. Last week I used a pore strip on my nose to get some blackheads out of there. I accidentally left it on too long and ended up peeling off some of my skin with the pore strip. OKAY OUCHHHH. It was not fun. Plus, my nose has been a red mess this week. Thank goodness I know a few makeup tricks to hide it! If you have redness from acne scars or rosacea, or pesky pore strips, keep reading to learn how to cover it up.

  1. Prep with primer: Apply a primer to your skin to make sure your makeup stays on all day. Primer also creates a barrier between your skin and makeup to prevent irritation.tumblr_inline_mw1721SkOq1qdfkq5
  2. Use tinted concealer: Pick a yellow or green tinted concealer to fight the red tones on your skin.
  3. Use a brush: Apply your concealer using a large brush to cover a wide area so you get coverage without going too overboard.
  4. Top it off with foundation: Use a brush to apply foundation over the concealer.
  5. Finish with powder: Take a yellow toned setting powder and press it into the skin to help your makeup stay in place alllll day long.

Hopefully these tips help you cover up that redness so you can feel confident in your own skin (literally!).

XOXO, Chels
