The Best Black-Owned Moisturizers To Keep Your Skin Hydrated This Winter

Skin & Nails

Cold weather ain't no joke.


A while ago, my husband looked at my feet and before he could try and judge, I told him, "It's been a long winter." He was like, "More like a hard life." I couldn't even get offended because I knew that I, like many other ladies, let their feet go on a downward decline during the cooler months with the excuse that very few people, if any, will see them. It's the same thing for unshaven legs (but that's another topic).

The bottom line is just because it's cold outside, doesn't mean our melanin has to suffer. In fact, taking care of our skin and keeping it moisturized will call for less makeup work when summer starts peeking its head around again. And who knows more about keeping melanin on point than our fellow African-Americans?

We've taken the beauty industry by storm and this time of year is perfect to support Black-owned beauty lines with amazing products that keep our bodies moisturized all year long.

When someone hurts you and you refuse to forgive them, it's like drinking poison and expecting them to die. Instead, by drinking this serum, you have subjected yourself to a slow, painful, agonizing suffering that only you can heal. My grandmother used to say you can't "make" anyone do anything, and over the course of my life I've grown to see that as truth. What I mean by that is, no one can make you mad or sad, you did that to your damn self. The wound always comes before the band-aid.
