Broderick Hunter’s Nighttime Routine Will Have You Rocking Matching Bonnets With Bae

"Is matching bonnets considered a love language?" Yes, Broderick. Yes, it is.

Culture & Entertainment

Whew, ladies. Broderick Hunter. The model and actor, who is taking over our IG scrolls is here to share his skincare routine, and sisssss, it's something to see!

Hunter began his modeling career in 2011 at age of 20, and has since went on star in editorials for various publications, including Cosmopolitan, Maxim, Essence, Vogue Paris and Italian GQ. He's been labeled one of the "sexiest men on Instagram" (because he is), by Business Insider, People and Harper's Bazaar, as well as being the face of Ralph Lauren for various campaigns. You may remember him from Ciara's "Sorry" music video, or going viral for getting the wypipo together for inappropriately lusting over him while using the n-word. Additionally, Hunter has appeared in Issa Rae's Insecure and starred on the sitcoms Marlon and Rel.

So needless to say, our guy has been getting to these bags.

And most recently, he linked back up with 'Harper's BAZAAR' to share his secrets on how he keeps that shining, chiseled face in tip top shape.

Hunter joined their "Go To Bed With Me" segment, where he showed off his nighttime routine for bae, which included facials, clay masks, Black-owned products, and ending his routine by making every Black woman swoon: by wearing a bonnet. Yes, a bonnet. Can he be any more adorable?

Of his very relatable skincare journey, he says, "It's always so difficult trying to figure out what works for you…[it's] trial and error all the time." He then asks, "Is matching bonnets considered a love language?"

Yes, Broderick. Yes, it is.

Hunter opens the video explaining his skin:

"My skin type is very dry. I get dehydrated a lot so I cater a lot of my products that I use towards helping me hydrate throughout the day because I'm not the type of dude to just pull out some moisturizer and just slap on, like I can't do all that, so I always like products that help me last throughout the day and help me feel good."

He goes on to hop in the shower, which he uses Ujjayi charcoal body wash to cleanse, we wipe our drool as he hops out, and he proceeds with his routine.

"I'm about to throw on some shea butter. This is a real shea butter straight from Africa. This stuff absorbs straight into your body. I personally feel like you can never have too much shea butter."

Up next, he brushes his teeth and gets into his skincare:

"Me and skincare have a very love-hate relationship. I get a lot of compliments on my skin and stuff but listen, I hate skincare with a passion. It's always so difficult to figure out what works for you. It's like life and a relationship, you just be trial and error all the time, you don't even know if things don't work out. It might be good for three months, but then month four hits and the whole thing goes to crap. I hate it."

He continues:

"It took me a while to really understand how I can get my skin on point and I thank God for my aestheticians. When somebody asks 'where are your pores,' say you don't know her, I never met her. Don't identify with it."

After applying a clay mask, and washing his face again using Guidance To Glow products, he washes his beard, moisturizes, and moves on to his hair:

Harper's BAZAAR/YouTube

"As for my hair, I've really fallen in love with this brand called Scotch Porter. I've used this (serum) for quite some time and I don't plan on retiring it ever. Not only does it smell good, but it also really does absorb well into my hair texture. After I tried the hair serum, I had to explore the other products and I asked them to send me the beard balm. This stuff right here is *the* best."

Once he's all moisturized, conditioned, and beard is glistening, he ends his routine in the best way possible,

"And for my last and final step, I am a firm believer in protecting your edges so...we throw on the bonnet. This helps keep my hair nice and moisturized throughout the night."

It's the security in his masculinity to put one on fa me.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
