“The process of [spending time paying attention to skincare] makes me think about who I am, and what I love about myself, and it's a continual reminder that this is still not a world that tells black people, 'Love yourself! You're super beautiful!'”

  • TULA Skincare -The Cult Classic Purifying Cleanser
    STEP

    It's a probiotic face wash and it smells amazing—it takes my makeup off, and it's pretty gentle.
  • Uma-Ultimate Brightening Rose Toner

    Then I tone—I always tone. Years ago I read that Halle Berry said something like, 'Every morning I wash my face, I tone, and I put on moisturizer.' Those three things. So I tone every day. [This] sort of tingles—I like an active-feeling thing—and your skin looks really good after.

    The other one I've been using for the zit outbreak moments, is Innisfree's Pore Cleansing Toner.

    It gets stupid when we get to the serums—I have so many. If I'm dry, I'll use hyaluronic acid. I like The Ordinary Hylamide one.
  • Goop-Instant Facial

    But my favorite thing in the whole world is the Instant Facial—I can't believe it's Goop. This shit is awesome. It does not mess with your skin, it's super active, you do not need to use it often. I use it once every two weeks.
