I know many of us want our skin to be “squeaky clean,” however if it feels dry and tight after you wash your skin, that could mean you’re cleansing too hard and you might be compromising your skin barrier and stripping your skin of its naturals oils.
Take a look at this list of cleansers that I put together to help you cleanse your skin thoroughly while still leaving it soft & hydrated.
Let’s also not forget some of the basics when it comes to washing your face which include but are not limited to:
🧼 Washing your face twice daily
🧼 Cleansing with lukewarm water (NOT HOT)
🧼 Gently apply your cleanser to your face (ideally with your hands) without scrubbing too harsh
🧼 Pat your skin dry with a gentle towel
🧼 Consider micellar water as a great gentle option to remove makeup before using your cleanser
Shout out to my colleagues @joshzeichnermd @dr.shadi_derm @doc.nkem who I know have also recommended some of these great cleansers as well.

When I tell you that the versatility of black hair is everything for me. On any given day you may see me with a bun, twist out, flat twists, or head even a beanie hat!
But one style that I can never get enough of is my and I can never get enough of the curls of one of my style icons, the incomparable @dianaross
Sadly, as a black woman, in 2022 biases in regards to natural hair still exist. Studies today still show that black women with natural hairstyles are perceived as less professional compared to those who wear their hair straight. Even more alarming, @dove released a new report in which 53% of black mothers say their children experience tear discrimination as early as five years old.
Thank you to @dove and @ebonymagazine for starting the conversations and commitments to end race-based hair discrimination🖤🖤🖤
Tagging some of beautiful black beauties who always rock beautiful styles as we celebrate the excellence & versatility of black hair this 🖤🖤🖤

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about dark underarms or how to address hyperpigmentation for the underarm region.
Let me 1st say if you’re having any significant symptoms including dryness, irritation, itching, etc. then definitely call your for a formal evaluation & diagnosis.
While I think for a lot of people with melanin rich skin it is normal to have darker parts of the body such as the under arms, knees, elbows, etc. if you are looking for some treatment options let me give you a few:
1️⃣ @cyspera Pigment Corrector $169.00
It’s a little pricey but this pigment character is formulated with cysteamine Which has been scientifically proven to improve the appearance of stubborn discoloration. An extra bonus is that it’s free of hydroquinone, Which many dermatologist love. It’s a bit pricey but totally worth it.
2️⃣ @sunfxofficial Body Polish $19.95
I usually do not recommend scrubs, but when I do I recommend this particular exfoliator that combines walnut shell and pumice to create an exfoliating body scrub that can be used twice weekly for improvement.
3️⃣ @dove Even Tone $5.99
An antiperspirant deodorant with Vitamin B3 that also evens the skin tone is just what the doctor ordered!
4️⃣ @pcaskin Pigment Bar $56.00
The combination of niacinamide, azelaic acid, and kojic acid all help to promote a clear complexion and even skin tone. I love using this for my face, but it can also be used for the underarm regions, or anywhere else on the body!
5️⃣ @cerave SA Cream $22.99
This contains salicylic acid in a hydrating cream to exfoliate the skin while keeping it hydrated without causing a lot of irritation.
Who else has been looking for something to treat dark areas on the body?
Let me know what you think in the comments
𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭’𝐬 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐲 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟐?

What story are you manifesting for 2022???

I’ve been getting a lot of request for some of my favorite eye creams so here we go.
It’s important to note that there are a lot of different causes for concerns regarding the eyes. Whether it be under eye circles, puffiness, hyperpigmentation, tear troughs, eye bags, and more. Most of these causes all have unique treatment options, and often you may need more than one type of treatment for full correction.
But when it comes to creepiness, dehydration, and fine lines & wrinkles, that’s where an eye cream can help the most!
Eye creams pack maximum hydration to keep the skin moist and hydrated so they don’t look dehydrated and tired.
Because eyelid skin is some of the thinnest skin on the body, creams formulated specifically for that part of the face work best.
Ingredients including hyaluronic acid, peptides, and some retinols are key. An added bonus includes sunscreens for maximum protection.
Check out some of my faves and let me know if there are any other creams you guys can think of?
