If you’ve been keeping up with my channel, you’ve probably seen my recent video about how I’ve finally been able to clear my acne! Obviously, the face wash and moisturizer I use are key in doing so, but there are other simple pointers that I didn’t mention in my video that help a lot more than you think! Here are 3 major rules that will help make your acne disappear!

  1. Avoid touching your face. Continually touching your face throughout the day reapplies bacteria and germs to your skin. Chelsea Crockett - MakeupThink of how many different things you touch a day without even thinking about it. You then touch your face unknowingly of the bacteria transferring to your pores!
  2. Pay attention to the products you use on your face. Obviously the face wash and moisturizer you use is going to play a part in clearing your acne, but a lot of the time breakouts tie in with what makeup you use.  In my video, I talk about Cureology and how it helped my skin.  You can take a quiz and receive medication that’s perfect for your type of acne.  Check out my video for more details!  As for makeup, if your skin is sensitive, try Clinique or Bare Minerals!
  3. Maintain a healthy diet and drink lots of water. You may think what you eat has nothing to do with your skin… WRONG! Foods with high concentrations of fat can clog up your pores in the long run. Obviously some McDonalds every once in a while won’t hurt, but diets with high amounts of fat will! Also, drinking water is beneficial for your whole body, including your skin! Be healthy and your skin will be too :)!

What “rules” do you follow when it comes to taking care of your skin? Let me know below!

I recently did a video on YouTube about how I cleared my acne, have you seen it? If not, a quick recap is that I started using a product called “Curology” and I am absolutely in love! This acne prevention medication is custom tailored for your skin and monitored by a licensed dermatologist, so this will work with any skin type (get a 30 day trial for free here:  https://curology.com/invite/chelsea). But, for those of you who like to go the more all natural, DIY skincare route, I did a bit of research and found 4 at-home skincare tips to keep your skin clear!

  1. Incorporate coconut oil: I like to use a little coconut oil on my skin after my shower, just to keep my skin soft. It is also antibacterial, so it keeps your skin clean and clear.
  2. Exfoliate daily: Use an exfoliant such as a sugar scrub every day to keep your pores clear and skin smooth. Every-day exfoliation helps keep oil and gunk from building up on your skin and in your pores!FullSizeRender-30
  3. Drink lots of water: Keeping yourself hydrated means keeping your skin hydrated! Staying hydrated helps your skin stay clear and moisturized.
  4. Change your pillowcase every/every other day. This keeps bacteria from building up and smothering your skin while you sleep!

If skin medicines aren’t your thing, try these healthy tips to keep acne away!

Curology Skincare: What Worked for Me!

The amount of different brands and products I’ve tried to clear up my acne is endless. It seems like all of my money is being used for the same results! I recently uploaded a video that talked about a brand that FINALLY cleared my acne! I thought I’d tell you all a little more in depth how these products can work for you, too :).

First comes first, checking out their website. After learning a little about the company, you’ll probably (at least I did!) want to start ordering your products! You have to begin by taking a medical questionnaire. Curology wants to know as much about your skin and what your skin goals are as possible! It’ll ask you detailed questions about your skin and medical history.Chelsea Crockett - Curology Perscription

Step 2 gets even more personal! They’ll want you to upload photos of your skin and your acne/breakouts. Your healthcare provider will review and examine them to pick the right products for your skin type specifically. The third part of the process is receiving your prescription such as the one above. They ship your products right to your front door! They say to apply them once every night before going to sleep.

You can track your improvement by uploading videos and discussing your progress with your healthcare provider. You can even update your products to keep up with your improvement. Let me know if you decide to try it out for yourself! It’s definitely worth it!

Love, Chelsea

Is Makeup with Skincare Benefits Worth Buying?

Recently in the world of makeup, more and more brands have come out with products that not only serve the purpose of making your eyes pop or covering up acne but actually eliminating breakouts and helping your pores! A lot of avid makeup-wearers are skeptical of the idea of makeup with skincare benefits, but I’m here to help clear up some of the confusion!

Some brands live up to their promises more than others. A lot of brands use skincare benefits to promote Chelsea Crockett - Skincare Makeuptheir products, when in reality they simply work just the same as regular products. With that being said, there are also brands that stay true to their promises! Sometimes the only way to find out is to try it out for yourself. Some products will work differently for other users. If you don’t want to spend money on trying it, read reviews about the product. I never used to do this, but it’s actually extremely helpful!

Although some makeup products actually do help with skincare, these in no way can replace your other skincare products such as face wash, moisturizer, medicine, etc. This makeup should just aid in the process of helping your skin, not take on the full job. A lot of products contain SPF, which is an amazing ingredient that can benefit your skin tremendously. Simply even using a small boost of SPF can prevent rays from damaging your skin.

Have you tried out makeup with skincare benefits? If so, give me your take on it below!

I’ve had my fair share of skin sensitivity and never thought of trying baby products on my own skin, but it’s genius! Find out which products work best for adults and get your own baby soft skin!Chelsea Crockett- dry shampoo baby powder

  • With winter comes crazy dry skin. The fix? Try using diaper rash cream on extremely dry areas, especially your hands! No, this is not a joke!
  • Use baby oil to remove waterproof mascara!
  • If your skin reacts badly to fragrance, dyes, or chemicals, use baby sunscreen for your skins protection!

  • Use baby wipes to get rid of deodorant stains from your clothes!
  • If you don’t want to spend the money on dry shampoo, try baby powder! It works just as well.

Do you use a cleansing brush like a Clarisonic? If so, there are some crucial steps you really cannot skip when it comes to your cleansing routine! This doesn’t just mean cleaning the brush, it deals with so much more! Read on to learn about how to get the most out of your cleansing brush.

  1. Use plenty of face wash and water: Fill the entire inner circle with cleanser, about a quarter sized amount, and then use the brush. Also, make sure you soak your brush in water to get the best pore cleaning action.clarisonic-mia-2-sea-breeze_1
  2. Keep it clean: Don’t share your brush…ever! Not with friends, not with siblings, no one! You don’t want to share bacteria with all of them! Clean the brush head with shampoo to keep the bristles clear of residue and oil after every few uses.
  3. Don’t double exfoliate: Make sure you don’t use cleansing soaps that have microbeads or other rough exfoliates when using the brush. Double exfoliation is really rough on your skin!

Keeping that brush clean will help you get better skin, and longer use out of it!

Sephora is the go-to hub of all things makeup and beauty. I recently stumbled upon an article that highlights four main face masks that are great for smoother and clearer skin. You can find each of these products at Sephora… Chelsea Crockett - Mud Maskcould you’ve guessed? Here’s a little insight on why you should totally check them out!

  • Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask by Peter Thomas Roth. This mask is made for drawing out impurities as it infuses the skin with vitamins and moisture. It also helps reduce the amount of dirt and oil hiding in your pores.
  • SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment by GLAMGLOW. This clearing treatment gets rid of all those unwanted skin imperfections such as breakouts, discolorations, etc. It contains a 6-acid blend that leaves your skin feeling and looking fresh!
  • Rose Face Mask by Fresh. Apart from it smelling absolutely amazing, this mask works to tone and hydrate your skin. It’s perfect for any skin type and calms the skin by reducing inflammation.
  • Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask by Origins. When it comes to beauty products, I love when they’re infused with charcoal. Charcoal is a great exfoliator and eliminates any dirt or oil stuck in your pores.

5 “Do They Actually Work?” Products

There are so many products in the beauty world that don’t stand true to their advertising. Eye catching promises such as “Lasts up to 24 hours!” or “Makes your lashes 10x longer!” make us wonder if those promises actually hold true. Here are my thoughts on some of those questionable products :)!

  1. Dry Shampoo. This absolutely works! You don’t know how many times this has saved me from a bad hair day. It helps greasy hair look a lot less oily and dirty, and it helps it feel better too!Chelsea Crockett - Way to Grow Products
  2. Hair Growing Shampoo and Conditioner. Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Shampoo and Conditioner are definitely two of the most popular products that claim to make your hair grow faster… and they do! I used them because, like you, I was curious as to if they actually worked or not. My hair wasn’t only stronger, but I noticed it grew a lot more quickly as well.
  3. Blush and Bronzer Cheek Stains. Depending on the brand, these can be a little iffy. Usually the high quality brands at Sephora and Ulta have promising staining products. Make sure you follow the directions or you’ll have stained streaks across your cheeks (Unfortunately, I know from experience)!
  4. Eyelash Curler. For some people, eyelash curlers are a necessity when putting on makeup. For me, I agree that they give a little extra lift to your lashes when you need it!
  5. Lip Plumpers. If you want an extra plump to your lips, a lip plumper is not my go-to product. If you find the right glosses and lip sticks, then you don’t even need a plumping product!

Let me know what you think about these products below!

There are hundreds of rumors that circle the beauty world daily. Whether they’re related to acne, hair, makeup, etc., they can be proved to be true or false with a few simple facts. I’ve heard a lot of things said about acne and breakouts that I couldn’t resist finding out the truth behind them. I found some facts that totally bust these common acne misconceptions!Chelsea Crockett - Acne Care Tips

  • “Makeup makes your acne worse.” False! Of course there are some brands and products that your skin won’t like and often breakout in response to them. But finding the right makeup for your skin can actually improve your acne by absorbing harmful oils.
  • “Your acne has nothing to do with your diet.” False! Eating foods high in sugar and fat can trigger acne. That doesn’t mean you can’t eat junk food every once in a while, but eating it for every meal can be the cause of your breakouts!
  • “Toothpaste can get rid of pimples.” False! Sometimes, yes, toothpaste can dry out your acne and speed up the healing process, but toothpaste isn’t made for your skin! Toothpaste can cause irritation and breakouts, especially if you have sensitive skin.
  • “Washing your face several times throughout the day can get rid of breakouts.” False! Of course washing your face is something you should do daily, but doing too much of anything can often hurt instead of help. Washing your face too much can make your skin extra dry and cause irritation. Be careful with how you deal with your breakouts.

Hopefully these helped you clear up some unanswered questions about acne! What other common myths do you know to be proved false? Share with me below :)!

  • If your face gets super dry in the winter, then you will definitely want to try this! Equally mix together oats and honey to make a scrub/mask. Apply to your skin in a circular motion and rinse off in the morning. The dry skin should come right off!
  • Mix a spoonful of coconut oil with a few drops of tree tea oil to help remove acne blemishes and/or rashes. Apply where needed and rinse off in the morning!

Milk and honey are the perfect combination. Not only do they smell great together, but are smoothing, conditioning, cleansing, and can even clear up acne! It can be hard to come across an all-natural soap that isn’t filled with extra dyes or chemicals. Luckily, making your own is just as easy as grabbing some at the store. Check it out!Chelsea Crockett- soap mold

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 tablespoons of Organic Raw Honey
  • 1 pound of Goat’s Milk Soap Base
  • Silicone Mold

Start by cutting the block of goat’s milk soap base into small cubes. Place the cubes in a big, microwavable bowl, microwaving for 30 seconds at a time and stirring in between. Once the soap base is completely melted, add the 3 tablespoons of honey and mix again. Pour the final mixture into the silicone soap mold, some come in really cute shapes, and wait until the soap has hardened. There is no need to place it in the refrigerator. The soap will harden at room temperature and can take up to 2 hours. Use this soap for yourself or give it away as a nice, homemade gift. You’ll never want to buy soap again!

XOXO,

Beauty Products to Never Share

Whether it’s with your college roommate or at a sleepover, it’s easy to get beauty products mixed up or forget to bring your own. Sharing anything from makeup to facewash doesn’t sound like a big deal, right? Wrong! Using other’s beauty products spreads bacteria and can even lead to infection! Check out which products should be avoided!Chelsea Crockett- sharing mascara

  • Eye makeup and mascara are the very worst to share with friends. Since your eye is watery, it is a trap for bacteria. Avoid an eye infection by keeping your eye makeup to yourself!
  • Admit it; most of us are guilty of not cleaning our makeup brushes. Brushes can hold on to bacteria and dirt, which can make yours or a friends face breakout!
  • Cold sores, sore throats, and other sicknesses can be transferred through lip gloss and lipstick! Keep those to yourself!
  • Facial cleansing brushes are a no-go when it comes to sharing. This can lead to a skin infection, especially if you have any type of rash or acne prone area! Anything that touches open sores shouldn’t be shared!
  • Razors are never meant to be shared…I mean, do I even need to go into detail on this one?

If reading this doesn’t make you want to keep your beauty products to yourself, then I don’t know what does! Let’s practice safe beauty!

XOXO,

Mask For Your Feet?!

Everyone knows that a facial mask every once in while is great for your skin! It’s an easy way to deep clean, minimize pores, and get rid of dry skin! Our feet, like our face, need the same kind of treatment! Unlike our facial skin, our feet get the rough end of the deal. Between walking barefoot, exercising, and wearing heels, it’s no wonder our feet can start looking a little under the weather. It’s time for a quick pick-me-up with foot masks!Chelsea Crockett- foot mask

You’re probably wondering what a foot mask is. Here’s how it works: first you slip on a pair of plastic socks (pretty funny looking). Next, you pour a liquid solution into each “sock” making sure all dry patches are fully submerged! Then, tie off each “sock” and let your feet soak for a little. As time goes on the solution will begin to get under the dry skin. Once you’ve let your feet soak for a decent about of time (10-15min), rinse your feet off under warm water and watch the magic happen! Your skin will begin shedding right in front of your eyes. Yes, it sounds gross, but the results are baby-soft skin!

There are multiple brands that make these masks, so look up one that sounds appealing to you and try it out! Comment below how you keep your feet soft and smooth, especially in the summer!

XOXO,

No time for contouring?  No problem! Contouring is applying dark and light colors in specific areas of your face and blending them together.  While the end product looks amazing, it can be very time consuming.  Tontouring is the next best thing!  It’s like contouring, but much quicker.  Check out how you can have a flawless complexion in 1…2…3!Chelsea Crockett- tontouring

Tontouring is applying self-tanner to specific areas of the face to add depth.  The best part?  Gradually, the self-tanner will stay and you won’t have to apply it every day!  So how do you do it?  Start off with a base by applying self-tanner all over your face.  Next, apply a darker shade of self-tanner under the cheek bones, down the sides of your nose, under your nose, and along your hairline on your forehead.  I suggest using a gradual self-tanner for the base and a regular self-tanner for the tontouring; but be careful, regular self-tanner tends to be streaky, so make sure you blend it in well!  Once the self-tanner has dried, continue doing your makeup as you normally would. 

Happy tontouring!

Sensitive vs. Tough Skin… How Do I Know?

You may be young and starting to enter the makeup world. Or maybe you want to switch to a new brand to save money or simply switch things up! Whatever the case may be, you need to know your skin. Buying new products can be dangerous if you don’t know if your skin is sensitive. You’re in luck because there are a few ways to tell:

  1. The easiest way to tell (obviously) is if the products you’ve already tried are accompanied by redness and stinging. Also, if you have an increase in acne and breakouts, avoid those products! Sometimes even avoiding the brand as a whole is your safest option.Chelsea Crockett - Clinique Foundation
  2. Another good, natural way to get to know your skin is to pay attention to how it reacts to the weather/sun. If your skin easily turns red and splotchy while being outside, then you’ll most likely react to insensitive products the same way.
  3. Wherever you go to buy your makeup, whether it be a drugstore or somewhere like Sephora or Ulta, a lot of products will have freebies or samples. This way you can try before you buy! If you see an immediate negative reaction, obviously your skin won’t react well to other products. A great brand for sensitive skin is Clinique. You won’t have to worry about redness or breakouts!

Good luck insiders! – Chels

In the summer fun it’s easy to get caught up in the fruity summer drinks, fresh juices, or soda.  It’s also easy to get distracted and forget about water all together!  It is especially important to keep up with your water intake in the hot summer months.  Not only does it keep you healthy and hydrated, but it has a multitude of benefits for your body including clear skin, more energy, and good digestion.  Check out a few of my red flags below to see if you’re drinking enough water!Chelsea Crockett- drinking water

  1. Are you feeling tired all the time or constantly getting headaches? This could be the result of dehydration.  Water keeps our bodies most important organs functioning correctly.  If you aren’t getting enough H20, your body will start to slow down.
  2. Are you still hungry after a big meal? Chances are you didn’t take advantage of that large glass of water with your food!  Water can fill you up when you feel hungry, but shouldn’t. It also helps your stomach break down foods!
  3. Is your skin starting to look dull? Are large black circles forming under your eyes?  This could be the result of your completion dying for extra water!
  4. Are you achy? Are you still sore from that workout a week ago?  Water acts as a natural lubricant for joints, which making them move easier.  If you’re feeling like a 100 year old woman, drink a large glass of water!

I challenge you to up your water intake this summer!  You’ll be glad you did!
