Face masks can hydrate your skin, dry out your skin, clear up your skin, etc.  But are they really all they’re cracked up to be?  Some people swear by face masks and use them almost daily.  Others say that most are overrated and can be a total waste of money.  Here are some true and false myths that will help you decide for yourself!

Myth #1: Face masks are harmful to your skin.Chelsea Crockett - Face Mask  TRUE and FALSE!  Too much of anything can be bad for your skin.  This rule applies to face masks.  Although they can be super beneficial, don’t use one multiple times a day!

Myth #2: Face masks have little to no actual skincare benefits.  FALSE!  Most masks actually do benefit your skin.  They can help hydrate it, eliminate oils and dirt, or simply boost its radiance.

Myth #3: You can make your own DIY masks that are just as beneficial.  TRUE!  There are tons of different mask recipes on Pinterest that you can make right at home that are great for your skin!

Myth #4: Using a face mask every day is a good thing.  TRUE and FALSE!  Depending on the type of mask it is, it can either dry out your skin or moisturize it.  For example, if you’re using a clay mask every day, it could really start to dry out and damage your skin!

Are you an avid user of face masks?  If so, share with me below which ones you believe really do make a difference!

Post-Workout Skincare Tips

I love going to the gym. It helps me calm my mind and makes me feel healthy and strong. The only downfall of visiting the gym is that I seem to break out after I go. I looked up why this was the case, and it was because I wasn’t treating my skin the way I should! After we workout, our pores are wide open which means that they are open to bacteria and makeup residue. Your skin is super vulnerable after a visit to the gym. Here are a few ways that I found to keep your skin healthy after hitting the gym or the trail.

  1. Make sure your makeup is gone before you work out. Use a makeup wipe to quickly and easily clear your skin. Do this so that your sweat can filter out of your pores freely instead of getting trapped by your makeup.
  2. Use skin products that don’t irritate. Using a harsh cleanser after you workout is not doing your skin any favors! Spray a facial toner on your skin post-workout to soothe and calm your skin.
  3. If you can’t get to a shower, use healthy ingredients to wash your face. Makeup wipes with natural cleansers like lavender are a great and handy way to quickly and easily get your skin clean of sweat and build-up after a workout.
  4. Keep your skin care kit on hand. If you workout before work or school, or you typically have to go somewhere other than home after a workout, keep your skincare essentials in a small travel bag. This is a great way to make sure that you get your skin cleansed before going anywhere, plus it will make you feel refreshed when you are on the go.

Keeping your skin clean is the key to kicking breakouts to the curb!

XOXO, Chels

Supermodels are known for their image.  Whether it be their silky hair or “perfect” teeth, there are certain things that everyone thinks of when they hear the word “model.”  One of the first characteristics that pops into my head is their extremely clear skin!  A few models have opened up to share their simple, everyday skincare tips that you can use to your benefit!Chelsea Crockett - Gigi Hadid Skin

  • It is absolutely necessary to have a daily skincare routine set in place! Your routine should include washing your face when you wake up and before you go to sleep at night.  Hold yourself to it!
  • Focus just as much on what goes in your body as to what goes on it. Watch your diet!  You don’t need to solely restrict your diet to healthy food, but monitoring the amount of junk you have every day doesn’t hurt!  Cutting down on foods high in fat and drinking lots of water will help more than you think.
  • Secret beauty tip: steam. Exposing yourself to steam such as a sauna, DIY steam facial etc., will help open up your pores.  They can get very clogged after days and days of wearing makeup even though you wash your face.
  • Don’t underestimate the power of toothpaste. Everyone knows the trick to get rid of pimples quickly.  Apply toothpaste to your pimple to dry it out and reduce inflammation!

Try these out and watch your skin change for the better!

Mineral Foundation: What’s the Difference?

Mineral makeup may be something you’ve never heard of before, or it may be something you use every day!  I’ve never really known the difference between normal makeup and mineral makeup, but I came to find out that it actually has a lot of benefits, especially using mineral foundation on your skin.  Here’s a little insight on what mineral foundation is and which ones I recommend!Chelsea Crockett - NYX Mineral Foundation

Some foundations feel extremely heavy on your skin throughout the day.  Although you may only put a little on, it can feel like it’s caked on and clogging your pores!  Mineral foundation feels much lighter on your skin and lets your pores breathe a little more than normal formulas.  It’s known for making your skin feel soft and natural.  If you have sensitive skin, you might want to give it a try!  Most of these formulas leave out any unwanted ingredients such as chemical dyes, fragrances, etc.

As far as which mineral foundations are the best, there are a few I highly recommend!  NYX Cosmetic’s Stick Mineral Foundation is easy to apply since you don’t need a brush or beauty blender.  Plus, you can apply it anywhere at any time!  If you’re more into powders, L’Oréal Paris True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation gives you a smooth complexion along with SPF protection!

Do you use mineral makeup?  Let me know your take on it in the comments below!

I have been aware of mineral makeup for a while, and I had heard it was so good for your skin, but I never really looked into it. But, recently a dermatologist told me that the reason I am having trouble getting rid of some of my pesky acne is because of the foundation I use! A lot of times drugstore foundations contain dyes and perfumes and can foster bacteria. Here is why you should make the switch to mineral makeup!4-in-1-pressed-mineral-makeup-porcelain-open

Mineral makeup is composed of inorganic minerals and is oil free so it doesn’t promote bacteria growth- Hooray! If you have acne prone skin then this is very important. It is also great for people with sensitive skin because it does not contain harsh perfumes or dyes like I mentioned above. Mineral makeup contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are both natural sunscreens that provide sun protection against those harsh rays. Another cool aspect is that titanium dioxide has a high light refraction index, which means it reflects light, even higher than that of a diamond! This helps reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and even gives you a glow!

Mineral makeup also offers you great coverage, a natural finish, and a smooth appearance! Although it is a little more expensive than your traditional foundation and powder I think that it is worth it. Think of all the money you could save on acne medicines!

I love the look, feel and finish that mineral makeup gives me. I give it a perfect 10!

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?

If you’ve been up-to-date with my YouTube channel, then you’ve probably seen my video about which skincare products I’m going to take to college with me.  All of the products I featured in the video were purchased from Target, so they’re not super pricey but still good quality!  Here are some of my favorite skincare products that you can try for yourself!

  • Clean & Clear Facial Cleanser Makeup Dissolving Wipes.  Sometimes I get very lazy and don’t have the energy to go through my entire night routine. Chelsea Crockett - Clean & Clear If this is the case, I’ll use one of these wipes to remove all of my makeup, dirt, and oil of my face before I go to bed!
  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Scrub.  This stuff is my absolute favorite!  It has a citrus fragrance that is so refreshing and gives me a burst of energy to start my day.
  • Garnier Micellar Water.  If you’ve never heard of micellar water, you need to try it!  It works as a facial cleanser, makeup remover, or simply a skin hydrator.  It leaves my skin feeling so refreshed!
  • Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream.  I love this product to help get rid of puffy morning eyes.  This will definitely be helpful for early morning classes once school starts up again!
  • Aveeno Moisturizer.  Aveeno moisturizers are super hydrating and great for your skin (especially the Positively Radiant moisturizer with SPF 15!).  They have multiple different kinds to suit whatever your skin type may be!

I hope you enjoy these products and get the most bang for your buck while doing so!

Love, Chelsea

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!

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!

3 Rules for Teenage Skincare

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!

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

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!
