Did you know that there is a right way to wash your face? Well, according to many beauty experts, there IS! There are a few key things to keep in mind when you are cleansing that façade of yours, and I am here to make sure you are completely filled in on what they are. Clean skin= clear skin!

Here are some steps to take to take when washing your face.

  1. Start off by washing your face with warm water and a cleanser. Dry your face with a clean towel.wash-face
  2. Apply facial toner and wait for it to dry. Toner is great for those who have oily skin.
  3. Next, apply any acne medications or topical treatments. If your dermatologist has prescribed you an acne prescription, apply it now!
  4. Apply a moisturizer. Moisturizer is so so so crucial! I like to use coconut oil as my moisturizer on occasion. It helps heal my acne scars and is a great anti-aging treatment! Also, moisturizer is important because dry skin actually makes your skin produce more oil, so those with oily skin beware!
  5. If you are preparing to put on makeup, apply a makeup primer!

Boom, you are done! You have now washed your face like a total pro. Like I said earlier, having a clean, moisturized face keeps acne away and does wonders for your skin!

Let me know if these tips help you keep a squeaky clean face!

Wash Your Face…The RIGHT Way

Hi Insiders,

            So you wash your face twice a day right?  Your skin looks and feels clean, but you get the occasional acne.  Unfortunately, most teens are not washing their face the right way leaving behind tons of dirt and oil.  Follow a few of my simple tips to have your cleanest and brightest skin yet.Chelsea Crockett- makeup cloths

  • It’s easy to rush through a face wash, especially when you’re in a rush or just want to go to bed.  Although it may be hard, take your time!!  Spend a few minutes really rubbing in the cleaner to your skin.  You have a days’ worth of dirt and oil on your skin, so spend more than a few seconds!
  • While washing your face, use lukewarm water.  Too hot of water can cause dry skin.
  • Don’t overuse makeup wipes!  These wipes are meant for short time use, like quickly reapplying makeup or wiping off the sweat from the gym.  Be sure to follow up with water and soap.  Makeup wipes can’t remove everything by themselves.
  • Moisturize!  It’s so important to moisturize to avoid dry skin.  Moisturizing at night is the most important, since your skin has a lot of time to soak in all of the nutrients.
  • Be gentle!  A lot of people think the best way to clean your face is with a harsh scrub or pressure with a wash cloth.  These things can irritate the skin and cause redness.  Only use these methods a couple times a week.

Love your skin and treat it properly!

Remove All Makeup…In 10 Seconds!

Removing all of my makeup at night can be such a chore. All of that scrubbing and rubbing can really irritate your skin! Did you know that there is a way to take alllll of that makeup off in just 10 seconds without having to scrub your skin like Cinderella scrubbed kitchen floors? It is true! Here is how:

All you need is some olive oil of your choice! Once you have located your family’s stash of olive oil, set it to the side. Grab a wash cloth and soak it in hot water. Now, pull back your hair so you don’t get oil in it, because that is no bueno. Pour about a quarter sized portion of oil into your hand and then rub it alllll over your face. Yes, all over. You should start to notice that the makeup is practically melting off! You should start to look like a wet clown because of your makeup smearing everywhere. Now take your hot washcloth and gently wipe all of that oil and makeup off. Once you have removed all of the oil and makeup, your face should feel as smooth as a baby’s bottom! It is also going to be super clean because olive oil is a great cleanser. So, in reality, you just got a facial AND a face wash! Lucky you!

What You’re Doing Wrong to Your Skin: Part 2

Loving your skin is very important.  If you read my last article, “What You’re Doing Wrong to Your Skin”, you may have realized that there are a lot of harmful beauty regimes you may be using on your skin.  Your skin is so delicate, so to prevent these mishaps, check out these additional ways to save your skin from any harsh treatment!

  • Be careful when exfoliating!  Scrubs with thick jagged pieces can cause small tears on the surface of your skin.  Even using a wash cloth to exfoliate can cause damage.  Make sure to be gentle and wash in a circular motion.  If it feels like it’s working “too good”, then it’s probably doing some harm.
  • Wash your makeup brushes!  After countless makeup applications, your brushes are probably caked with makeup, and not to mention bacteria.  Bacteria from your eyes, mouth, and bathroom can build up on your brushes.  Invest in brush shampoo or a spray to keep them clean!Chelsea Crockett- makeup brushes
  • Do not rely on makeup wipes to clean your face.  Of course they are great for lazy nights or a makeup mishap, but they may leave irritants or chemicals on your skin since you are not rinsing with water.  Be sure to wash your face with soap and water!
  • Watch touching your hands to your face!  Your hands touch everything, which can create a buildup of dirt and oil.  Touching your face with unclean hands can create more oil, or worse, zits!

Paying attention to your skin is very important!  Treat it with care and it will pay you in return with a glowing complexion.

Love,

Chelsea

Washing your hair: You’re doing it wrong! I had no idea that I was making so many mistakes! Here is an inside look on how to get the most out of your shower.

 1. If you have long hair, condition first.

Yes, you read right! If your hair is past your shoulders, you can protect your ends by running a small amount of conditioner through them and lightly rinsing, before you shampoo. This not only keeps your ends healthy, it will boost your shine! 

2. Lather up at the scalpwoman-shampooing

You really only need to lather up at your scalp! The hair closest to the scalp is the youngest and oiliest, and the hair at the ends is the oldest and driest! The best way to shampoo is from roots to ends.

5. Don’t rinse and repeat.
There is no need to wash your hair twice.  You can avoid stripping and drying out your hair by only shampooing once. If your hair is super oily, then you can lather up a second time.

I hope these tips give you shiny, voluminous hair, ladies!

XOXO, Chels
