Tanning has become an obsession between teens everywhere!  Being pale is “totally outdated” making the use of tanning beds higher than it used to be.  Unfortunately, this excessive exposure to UVA and UVB lights are causing a rise in skin cancer.  Although neither form of tanning is particularly safe, let’s compare the difference between tanning in a tanning bed and tanning outdoors in natural sunlight. Chelsea Crockett- natural sunlight tanning

So, which is worse for you: tanning beds or natural sunlight?  If you answered tanning beds, you’re correct!  Tanning in a tanning bed has become a daily routine for most teens.  With the lights so close to your body, you are exposing yourself to a risk of skin cancer two times greater than natural sunlight, according to the British Journal of Dermatology.  You could spend a couple hours in the mid-day sun and be better off than spending 15 minutes in a tanning bed.

This summer, try to spend more time outdoors and less time in a tanning bed.  Years down the road, your body will thank you for it.  Be careful Insiders!

Love,

Going to the salon to lighten your hair can be a pain.  Between the harsh chemicals and heavy price tag, it’s almost not worth it; not to mention the fading of the color over time!  Lucky for us girls, there are natural ways to lighten your hair this summer!  Getting sun-kissed hair has never been easier!Chelsea Crockett- lemon highlighter

  1. Boil one tea bag in water for 10 minutes and then rinse your hair with it. Leave the tea in your hair for 15 minutes before rinsing it out!
  2. Before lying out in the sun, squeeze a fresh lemon throughout your hair. The sun and lemon juice will act together to lighten your hair!
  3. Add cinnamon to a small amount of conditioner, enough to coat your entire head evenly, and brush it through your hair. Pin your hair up to leave it in for a few hours or for quicker results; use a shower cap so you can sleep with the mixture on overnight.
  4. Crush 8 or 9 vitamin C tablets and mix them together with your shampoo. Shampoo and condition as you normally would and rinse!

Remember, results take time!  You may need to do each treatment multiple times before noticing lighter hair!

Love,

Chelsea

            Ever wanted to dye your hair, but your parents won’t let you?  Or maybe you’re afraid of the potential effects from hair dye?  Well, now you don’t need to worry.  There are many natural ingredients that can help tint your hair into the color you want.

  • Lemon Juice.  If you dribble a little bit of lemon juiceChelsea Crockett - Lemon Juice Hair onto your hair, it lightens it and gives you a tint of blonde highlights.  Especially for brunettes, it will start to look like you have light brown/blonde highlights!  As for blondes, you can simply lighten up your locks with lemon juice!  P.S. This only works if you’re out in the sun!  So, get some sunlight after you apply it to your hair!
  • Black Tea.  Sounds crazy but dying your hair with black tea actually works!  In order to get light brown hair, you have to mix it with a few ingredients.  If you mix together black tea, an eighth of lemon juice, and a teaspoon of olive oil and apply it to your hair, it will give you the hair color you want.  Make sure you soak your hair in it for up to 2 hours!  For a dark brown shade of hair, soak your hair in plain black tea and stay out in the sun for a couple hours!  It’s as simple as that!
  • Kool-Aid.  I know it’s not necessarily a “natural” hair dye, but it does color your hair!  Pick any Kool-Aid flavor and you can simply dye all of your hair or just a chunky strand of it!  Awesome, right?
