What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
I gravitate towards feminine energy, and I’ve got a lot of women in my life that have taught me tons about skincare, makeup, haircare. The biggest tip that I've heard so far—and it’s not a revelation, but for me, having melanated skin, it was—was to wear SPF. No matter rain or shine, SPF. Always. All the time. There was this myth when I was growing up that if you had darker skin, you didn’t need to use SPF. Now, a lot of older women in my life that are in their fifties and sixties are shouting from the rooftops to the younger generations, “Sis, you need SPF.” On a very aesthetic level, sunscreen evens out skin tone by preventing spots. But health is a huge thing for me as well, when it comes to beauty. Look after the inside of your body, and it shines outwardly. I hate to be all doom and gloom, but it’s really important to take care of your skin’s health, not just its aesthetics. SPF does both, which is rare.
