If you're dying to know the truth behind the skincare secrets that have kept Bianca Lawson swimming in the fountain of youth for the last two decades, you're not alone my good sis, and xoNecole has you covered on all the details.

The Queen Sugar star has been our skincare goals since booking her debut role in Saved by the Bell in 1993, and 27 years later, Bianca hasn't aged a day. According to Bianca, the secret to keeping her glow on go is remembering that less is more. She told FabFitFun:

"I've been using the same products since high school. I feel like the more you leave yourself alone, the better. When people are constantly changing products and doing what the 'new' thing is—it drives your skin, hair and body crazy. Stick with what's working and listen to your body."

Along with keeping her water intake high, Bianca explained that although it's easy to be enticed by pricey skincare products, she's often found that a budget-friendly routine is much more efficient. She explained:

"I absolutely do not think expensive equals better. Usually, it's actually the opposite. I honestly have better results with the less expensive stuff—the simpler the better."

I believe that Black women are like wine, we get better as we age, and Bianca is living proof of this fact. During the interview, she advised that keeping a simple, consistent routine will ensure that your Black won't crack:

"Interestingly, makeup artists used to put way more makeup on me when I was younger. Now I actually wear far less makeup, which I prefer. I hate having tons of makeup on, and I pretty much never wear makeup in my day to day life."

Another skincare hack that keeps Bianca looking as good as she feels is remembering to do something she loves––every damn day. She told BlackGirlNerds:

"I think a part of it is not stressing out about it and using the same products forever. My Dad is always busy and always doing something and going forward and living your life that keeps you youthful. Living a healthy lifestyle, staying out of trouble, and keeping things very simple [is what I do]. I've seen people who have aged 10 years in one year, and they had their passion, their purpose, they were working, and they were really active in life and then something happened and they lost that thing. I think being on pause and not engaging in life anymore you don't feel as fulfilled."

Over the years, our favorite Cheetah Girl has remained relevant with evolving identities from singer to actress to entrepreneur.

Most importantly, The Real co-host's mission is centered around authenticity and transparency.

Like most people, I have a love/hate relationship with Sundays. On the positive side, I love Sundays because it's normally my day to unapologetically indulge in an endless amount of mimosas and delicious bites while catching up with my girls at the latest day party. But after the mimosas are gone, the food has been digested, and the music stops, I'm back at home, looking at my upcoming reality - Monday.

How We Met is a series where xoNecole talks about love and relationships with real-life couples. We learn how they met, how like turned into love, and how they make their love work.

When it comes to sexuality, there have always been societal limitations centered on what is "acceptable." However, with more honest conversations about how fluid sexuality and sexual expression can be, now there are so many more opportunities for self-exploration and taking back ownership of our identities again. One couple that is living their truth and being sexual beings unapologetically while living and loving their lives are Jasmine Johnson and King Noire.

Zendaya has always championed diversity in Hollywood and proves that she doesn't just talk the talk, but she also walks the walk. In the past, she has called out racism, colorism and even addressed her own privilege as a biracial woman in the industry. For example, in 2018, the former Disney star attended BeautyCon and talked about how she wants to use her privilege to help other Black women.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
