How to Style a One-Piece Swimsuit

The One-Piece swimsuit isn’t for the timid. Between the bold prints, fun cut-outs, crisscross backs and crochet details, we’re clearly not afraid of a challenge.

Jessica from The Steele Maiden styles her favorite Cross-Back One-Piece by pairing it with our Beach Tank and Short.

What Inspired Jessica’s Look:
“My motto for the beach is casual and comfortable.. but still cute!  I loved the relaxed fit on these breezy shorts and this sweater tank is so easy to throw on, plus it was easily dressed up with jeans and heels to head out to dinner later that night. And I can’t get enough of Summer hats like this straw fedora – stylish and practical, it’s a win win.”

How to Wear the Baby T-Shirt with Syma Speaks

Cropped tops are the ultimate summer staple and our new Striped Baby T-Shirt is no exception. It’s soft stretch cotton, classic scoop neck and cropped fit is ideal for pairing with your favorite hi-rise jeans and maxi skirts.

Our girl Syma from Syma Speaks pairs her Striped Baby T-Shirt with distressed denim and a statement heel for the perfect casual glam look.

How to Wear the Baby T-Shirt with Syma Speaks

Meet Syma:
“Allow me to reintroduce myself. I’m Syma – living the NYC life and blogging at symaspeaks.com. Fun fact? By day I do PR for AEO so you could definitely say I live my life in AEO (hi-rise ) denim. I launched Syma Speaks originally in print – in 3rd grade as a magazine to my classmates. Fast forward to now and it’s become my digital creative outlet where I share anything from fashion, beauty to what’s currently on my playlist (Beyoncé).”

What Inspired Syma’s Look
“This crop top has become a summer staple in my wardrobe. Surprisingly versatile, you can dress it up or down. I love this style from American Eagle Outfitters that has a low ballerina back. The black and white stripes make it classic and easy to pair with anything from denim to a maxi skirt.”

How to Wear the Baby T-Shirt with Syma Speaks

“For this look, I wore my hi-waisted “Mom jeans” also from AEO. I love when people ask if they are a vintage pair of denim that I’ve had in my closet for ages. Best compliment ever.”

How to Wear the Baby T-Shirt with Syma Speaks

“A hi-waisted jean is a key pairing with any crop top. Be sure to check out the amazing hi-rise selection AEO has to offer. From jeggings, to skinny jeans to flares—you’ll be sure to find a style that is super flattering on you. Add a pair of statement heels and you’re ready for a fun night out! Are you ready to crop it like it’s hot?”How to Wear the Baby T-Shirt with Syma Speaks

DIY Brightening Face Mask

We’re back with another post from CHAARG (Changing Health, Attitudes & Actions to Recreate Girls). To help you make this summer your happiest and healthiest yet, CHAARG girl Morgan brings you this DIY face mask that we wish we could eat for breakfast, too! Stay tuned for more fun health and workout tips.

DIY BRIGHTENING FACE MASK

At CHAARG, we are firm believers in treating yourself! Whether it’s a pint of ice cream or a mani-pedi spa day, it’s important to take time for YOU. So for those summer nights when you want to sit in your PJs and pamper yourself, we have just the treat: DIY Brightening Face Mask!

Spa products can be super expensive (and not to mention, full of unnatural chemicals and additives), so we’re fans of making our masks at home with natural ingredients so you know exactly what’s going into them. Chances are, you have most of the ingredients on hand!

Being out in the summer sun can hurt your skin, so this exfoliating and brightening face mask will help hydrate your face and rub away dead skin, leaving your face feeling brighter, glowing and gorgeous—just like you!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup plain Greek yogurt

¼ cup rolled oats*

¼ cup brown sugar**

1 TBSP honey*** (melted)

1 TBSP coconut oil (melted)

1 small- to medium-sized Mason jar for storage

*For more of a healing mask, add in extra oats to soothe your skin.

**For more of a scrubbing mask, add more sugar to the mixture.

***For best results, use raw honey.

DIY Brightening Face Mask

WHY WE LOVE THEM

All of the ingredients in this face mask have amazing skin benefits!

Greek yogurt—moisturizer/skin brightener

Greek yogurt works well with dry, sensitive skin and is perfect for scrubbing away dead skin cells. It also fights against acne.

Oats—revitalizer

The oats act as a revitalizing agent that, like Greek yogurt, treats acne. Although the oats themselves don’t lubricate the skin, when paired with a moisturizer, they help your skin retain moisture and give it pretty, glowing shine.

Brown Sugar—exfoliant

You’ve probably seen sugar scrubs at every spa and beauty supply store you’ve been to, and for good reason. Sugar is the best scrub for your face, and when applied to the skin, it reacts with the upper layer of the epidermis, exposing live skin cells and allowing your skin to become even more moisturized.

Honey—healing agent

Not only does honey taste great, but it helps you get glowing skin for the summer. It has natural healing properties, and like oats, it helps the skin retain moisture, allowing your skin to feel suppler. Because honey absorbs impurities from pores on the skin, it can also be used as a part of an acne regimen.

Coconut oil—moisturizer

Coconut oil works as a moisturizer, and when combined with an exfoliating agent like the brown sugar, it scrapes off excess dead skin and cleans out blocked pores.

TIME TO TREAT YOURSELF!

The great thing about this recipe is that it’s super quick. All you need is a food processor (or a blender), which means easy cleanup too!

1] Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until the mixture is smooth/creamy.

2] Spoon into a mason jar. The mixture can be stored in the fridge for as long as the date on the Greek yogurt is good!

3] Using your hands (get ready to get messy!), begin spreading the mixture across your face. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes.

4] Using warm water on a washcloth, begin scrubbing the mixture off your face, moving your hands in a circular motion to wipe the mixture off.

5] Hello, beautiful skin!

Let us know what you think of the face mask by tagging us on Instagram @CHAARG with the hashtag #inCHAARG. And remember to take care of your skin this summer, girls!
