Girls either love camping or hate it.  I, for one, loving being outdoors especially if I’m hanging out with my friends and family!  Although it’s super fun, it can take a toll on my hair and skin when I’m outside for all hours of the day.  Here are some ways to keep yourself clean and healthy!

  • Dry Shampoo.Chelsea Crockett - Dry Shampoo  I know that when my hair feels gross, I feel gross.  Having dry shampoo with you wherever you go is always a necessity!  It’ll make both the feel and appearance of you hair 10x better.
  • SPF Moisturizer.  As you know, you should always, always moisturize.  But having a moisturizer with SPF protects you from the sun and is good for your skin!  Might as well kill two birds with one stone, right?
  • Baby Wipes.  If you don’t have a way to shower where you’re at, pack some baby wipes to clean yourself off with.  It sounds weird, but it’s a good way to clean off if you don’t have access to a shower!
  • Wave Spray.  If you’re having that bad of a hair day, get your hair wet and spray it with wave spray.  You can still have fabulous waves even if you feel like you’re not having the greatest hair day!

Hopefully these hacks help you out next time you take a camping trip, especially if you’re not a huge fan of it ;)!

The Importance of SPF Makeup

Especially during the summer, we’re all used to hearing “make sure you wear sunscreen!” or “don’t forget to reapply!”  But half the time we just rub it off our shoulder or pay little attention to it!  But what about makeup that has SPF included in it?  Does that actually get the job done when it comes to protecting our skin?  Keep reading to find out!

Most sun damage comes from everyday sun exposure, not just those few days you spend at the pool.  Think about the times you take your dog for a walk, go outside for a run, or even step outside to get the mail.  Your skin is exposed to the sun’s rays whether you realize it or not and you need to be well prepared! You can go about this in either one of two ways.  You can find a foundation with a built-in SPF that works perfectly for you!  You might be thinking that it would be hard to find a product that works just as well as your regular foundation and protects your skin at the same time, but almost all of your favorite brands have products that offer the best of both worlds!Chelsea Crockett - SPF Makeup

As for the other way you can go about skin protection, simply get a moisturizer that has a built-in SPF.  This will both hydrate your skin and protect it when you’re in the sun.  This is a good option for those of you that don’t normally wear foundation or other face makeup regularly.  By doing this you’re still getting the SPF protection you need without using harmful sunscreen chemicals on your skin. 

After getting a little more knowledge about SPF makeup, are you going to try it out?  Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Well guys, the time we wait for all school year is almost here… SUMMER!  I am so excited for the warm weather, sleeping in, and for lots of big plans coming up.  That being said, warm weather means lots of sun and catching some rays.  My skin can be super sensitive when it comes to picking the right facial sunscreens, so here are some of my favorites for summer!

  • Coppertone Sensitive Skin Faces Sunscreen SPF 50 ($7.49). Che;sea Crockett - CeraVe Sunscreen If you want a product that’s both cheap and effective, try out Coppertone!  Coppertone is a good brand if you have super sensitive skin.  It’s extremely gentle and won’t dry out your face.
  • Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb the Antioxidant Super Moisturizer ($17).  Garnier’s Moisture Bomb will take care of those annoying dry patches of skin that might be bothering you.  It’s not called the Moisture Bomb for nothing!
  • CeraVe Skin Renewing Day Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen ($20.69).  If you want a double-purpose cream that works as a moisturizer and a sunscreen, try using CeraVe’s renewing cream.  The sun can oftentimes dry out your skin, so having this on hand is never a bad idea! 
  • It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ ($38).  If you’re looking for a good sunscreen that acts as a foundation as well, then this is the product for you.  You can take care of your blemishes and sun protection in one step!

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!

Wake up sleepy head! You don’t have to be a morning person to start your day with a kick booty beauty routine. Toss in a few of these easy steps to your morning rituals to keep you feeling fresh all day long:download-1

  1. Down some protein: Instead of reaching for a carb overload (aka. toast or a bagel) opt for a cup of Greek Yogurt or some eggs. When you eat a protein packed breakfast, you stay fuller longer and avoid over eating later on throughout the day!
  2. Smooth on sunscreen: Protecting yourself from the sun is crucial, even when the sun isn’t out. Use a SPF moisturizer and foundation, and you can also use SPF on your lips and neck and back of your hands. This helps prevent wrinkles and skin cancer!
  3. Hydrate: Dehydration can cause you to be sluggish and can also mess with your skin! Start your day with a big glass of water, and keep a water bottle with you all day.
  4. Apply antioxidants: Use vitamin E and C on your face to help protect your skin against aging free radicals found in UV rays and pollution. These vitamins also supplement your sunscreen and give your skin a beautiful glow.

Have a beautiful day, gorgeous!

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?

Summertime Health Myths

Believe it or not, summertime is when we are most likely to be at our healthiest. Our immune systems are stronger because of our body’s natural circadian rhythms. Although this is true, it doesn’t mean that we can slack on taking care of ourselves and protecting our body! Here are some common summer health myths that cause some people to stumble up when it comes to self-care.

  1. The sun will clear up your acne: I have had friends tell me that they go to the tanning bed because it helps them manage their acne. That is not the right way to treat acne! The sun, or tanning bed, won’t dry out your zits. A tan may help camouflage them, but so does concealer.2220101
  2. The sunscreen in your makeup is enough protection: Relying on the SPF in your makeup is a common mistake. The SPF in beauty products usually isn’t high enough to really protect your skin. Use a daily moisturizer with SPF in it in addition to your makeup for full protection.
  3. You are only sunburnt if your skin is red: Not true! Sometimes it can take hours for your burn to actually start showing. So, if you are laying out in the sun and it looks like you aren’t burning, you won’t always spot it is burning until it is too late. It can take up to 6 hours to start to show redness!

If you don’t know if something is true, ask your doctor or a trusted medical expert. Better safe than sorry!

It’s crazy how makeup can make a person look so different! While we want to look young and bright, sometimes makeup can make us look dull or even older (not in a good way). So how can we stop this from happening? Keep on reading to see if you’re applying makeup incorrectly!Chelsea Crockett- exfoliate

  • Don’t pass up primer! Primer minimizes your pores and keeps makeup on longer! You won’t have to worry about weird lines or big pores, especially around your nose.
  • Make sure you’re using the correct foundation. Don’t pack on too much powder or liquid foundation and make sure you are using the correct shade.
  • Don’t dye your hair all one color. If you go to a stylist, ask him/her to add warmth or another tone into your hair! It’ll help make your face glow!
  • Not exfoliating regularly will lead to a buildup of dirt and dry skin. By exfoliating, you’ll be giving your face completely new skin!
  • Wear SPF every day! While you may not notice how it’s changing your skin now, you will when you’re older!

Let’s feel youthful forever!

Importance of Winter Weather SPF

We all know that wearing sunscreen during the summer time is a no-brainer. But wait, did you know that it is just as important to wear SPF in the winter? It doesn’t matter if you are inside all day at school or work, you still need to protect your skin!images

UV rays are everywhere even in winter! The rays penetrate the windows of your car, of your school, even your house! They are especially harmful in the snowy weather because the sunlight reflects off the snow and strengthens the rays. The sun can even harm you on cloudy days! The sun causes your skin to age and can cause spider veins and loss of fullness in your lips. Hands show aging the most, so watch out when you have your hands on a sunny steering wheel! Your neck is quick to show the signs of aging as well, so watch out! Sun damage adds up quickly, so every little bit you can prevent helps!

One easy way to get your SPF in is to use a moisturizer with sunscreen in it.

Winter: a time when the air gets dryer, the temperatures get lower, and our skin becomes dryer.  Oh the joys of winter!  Most people try to take care of their skin extra well during this time of the year, but many don’t realize that their efforts are actually causing damage to their skin.  Check out these common winter beauty mistakes to make sure you don’t do them yourself!  Chelsea Crockett- over exfoliating

  • Cold winter winds can leave our eyes dry and watery. Unless you plan on wearing sunglasses every time you’re outside, be sure to apply an ultra-rich moisturizing cream in the morning and night to protect your eyes from the chilly temperatures.
  • Did you know that taking a hot shower can actually be bad for your skin? I know I’m guilty of this! The hot winter can pull out moisture in your skin leaving it dry. Instead try a warm shower or be prepared to lather on the lotion.
  • When your skin gets dry and flakey, it’s easy to break out the exfoliator. Exfoliating will remove the dry, dead skin cells, leaving your skin smooth, but over-exfoliating can also get rid of new, healthy cells. Keep the exfoliating to once a week.
  • Replace alcohol based products with hydrating formulas.
  • Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t get sunburned. Never forget your SPF, especially if you live in an area with high elevation.

Love your winter skin!
