Alicia Keys Says Adding Sulfur To Your Nighttime Routine Is Key For A Bare-Faced Slay


For most of us, nighttime is the most glorious time of the day. The kids (if applicable) are in bed, your work for the day is done, you've got your essential oils burning, and it's time to wind TF down. But personally, one of my favorite times of the evening is when I can light a candle, roll a fat one, and completely consume myself in my skincare routine.

I've grown to learn that no matter how busy I am, I owe it to myself (and my skin) to take at least 30 minutes out of my day to truly take care of myself and not feel bad about it, damn it, and Alicia Keys agrees with me.

Recently, the famously bare-faced beauty dropped a "Get Unready With Me" video on her youtube page where she broke down her skincare regimen and filled us in the products that keep her sometimes difficult skin blemish-free and according to her, incorporating sulfur into your nighttime routine might be the stinky skincare secret you didn't know you needed. She explained:

"If you've ever gone to places that have sulfur, it's like when you're driving down the highway and you smell that egg smell, and everybody in the car is like, 'Oh, who farted?' That's sulfur. It smells like a fart. But whatever the case, sulfur is the bomb."

Along with her sulfur-infused Advanced Anti-Blemish Lotion, Alicia says things like her candles, essential oils, Sacred Rose Water aromatherapy spray, and the palo santo stick are essential parts of her nighttime routine that allow her to get her intentions all the way together (and camouflage the smell of sulfur before she gets in bed). In the video, Alicia explained that as a wife, a mother, and an entertainer, her skincare routine has become less of task on her to-do list and more of an act of self-care:

"For me, even if it's just five minutes at the end of the day I need it and I bet you need it too. I actually love getting undone at night. My husband always like, what are you doing in there? But it's my time. No, I love taking the time to just bring it down."

You'd Be Amazed How Much This One Thing Can Keep You Out Of Divorce Court

I truly can’t believe that it was almost five freakin’ years ago that I penned “Why I'll Never Call Someone A 'Boyfriend' Again” for this platform. Now that I’m in the thick of writing my third book (due out later this year) and I’m revisiting this declaration, I am standing firm on it more than ever. There are no boyfriends in the Bible. Your taxes couldn’t care less if you have a boyfriend (some of y’all will catch that later). And acting like you’re married while having a boyfriend when you’re actually not? That is so hella counterproductive — on a myriad of different levels.
