The Skincare Routine That Keeps This Influencer Glowing From The Inside-Out

Jasmin Reshae wants you to know that eliminating stress is the secret to solving your skincare problems.

About Face

Now that you've blown a bag, tried all of the trendy diets, and have done all of the detoxes, it's time to consider that there's another culprit responsible for your breakouts. You can only look as good as you feel and South Carolina-based social media influencer Jasmin Reshae wants you to know that eliminating stress is the secret to solving your skincare problems.

In a recent chat with xoNecole, Jasmin advised, "Try the best to live as stress-free as possible because your body knows when it's under duress. When you feel good, you're confident and in turn, you look good because happiness radiates."

For Jasmin, skincare isn't a routine, issa lifestyle––one that starts from the inside-out. "Over the years, I realized skincare is mainly about what you put in you. No matter what, if you don't love the person you are and the skin you're in, the way you view yourself will never change. Confidence is beauty and glows from within."

While blemishes can get the best of us, Jasmin suggested that we overcome our skin-related insecurities by exposing and accepting them. She explained, "For instance, if you don't care for your skin, wear it out so you can see it every day and it'll become your norm. Either you'll like it or you'll try out different regimens to improve it."

In our interview, Jasmin gave us the tea on how she does self-care, her morning routine, and the skincare regimen that keeps her glow-on-go all damn day. Scroll below for details:

My earliest beauty memory...

"My best friend Ashley Rutledge taught me how to do my brows in high school and we used a black eyeliner pencil… did someone say 'permanent marker brows' (laughs)? She also taught me how to apply lashes and do a little glitter liner when we used to cheerlead at the basketball games."

For my skincare routine in the AM...

"First, I rinse my face with warm water and take my Vanity Planet Spin Brush and use my Ambi Skincare Black Soap or SheaMoisture African Black Soap to begin washing my face and then rinse. Next, I take a mixture of Cetaphil Daily Face Cleanser and CeraVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser to treat/wash my face again.

After rinsing, I tone my face with Thayers Blemish Clearing Lemon Witch Hazel Toner. Then I hydrate my face with a mixture of Cetaphil Daily Hydrating Lotion, aloe vera gel from Target and A+D Skin Protectant."

For my skincare routine in the PM...

"If I am wearing makeup, I remove it with Aveeno's Makeup Wipes and then proceed to wash my skin (repeating my morning skincare routine)."

My go-to makeup look consists of...

"My go-to makeup look is neutral, natural, and glowy. NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation alongside Milani Make It Dewy Setting Spray are the essentials to achieve a neutral beat."

How the seasons change my skin and routine...

"Fall and winter are my matte seasons so I want to stay moisturized but I am not pressed for an outer glow. For spring and summer, I am all about the glow and may throw on my L'Oreal Lumi Glotion."

What self-care looks like to me...

"Self-care must-haves include and are not limited to a good skincare moment using African Black Soap and my face steamer, lighting a good-smelling candle, and kicking back listening to music or watching Netflix TV shows while eating good."

My approach to beauty from the inside-out...

"Listening to music, a sermon, or reading a good book will set a positive vibe and get me going––feeling good while looking good!"

How I do skincare when I travel...

"When traveling, you have to condense your steps meaning you bring your essentials and use your essentials. For skincare, I make sure to pack makeup remover/wipes, African Black Soap, toner, and a good moisturizer. For makeup, you must have your favorite foundation, concealer, setting powder, spray, and an all-in-one palette that you can use for shadows, contour, and/or blush if need be. Oh, and you can't forget the lips––bring a neutral nude matte lippie, clear gloss, and a brown lip liner! For hair, as long as you have an edge brush and edge gel… if the baby hairs are on fleek, you are too!"

Black women have been redefining what wellness looks like since the beginning of time. (I even have a real-life, sassy, still-walking-signifying-driving-gardening example of this via my own 92-year-old Granny, who is the epitome of manifestation and self-preservation, as she has always defined wellness on her own terms.) We continue to shift the narrative, especially when it comes to what "wellness" actually means as a Black woman in a world where it can be so hard to simply exist in fullness.

We all know what it is to love, be loved, or be in love – or at least we think we do. But what would you say if I were to tell you that so much of the love that you thought you’d been in was actually a little thing called limerence? No, it doesn’t sound as romantic – and it’s not – unless you’re into the whole Obsessed-type of love. But one might say at least one side of that dynamic might be…thrilling.

Before she was Amira Unplugged, rapper, singer, and a Becoming a Popstar contestant on MTV, she was Amira Daughtery, a twenty-five year-old Georgian, with aspirations of becoming a lawyer. “I thought my career path was going to lead me to law because that’s the way I thought I would help people,” Amira tells xoNecole. “[But] I always came back to music.”

A music lover since childhood, Amira grew up in an artistic household where passion for music was emphasized. “My dad has always been my huge inspiration for music because he’s a musician himself and is so passionate about the history of music.” Amira’s also dealt with deafness in one ear since she was a toddler, a condition which she says only makes her more “intentional” about the music she makes, to ensure that what she hears inside her head can translate the way she wants it to for audiences.

“The loss of hearing means a person can’t experience music in the conventional way,” she says. “I’ve always responded to bigger, bolder anthemic songs because I can feel them [the vibrations] in my body, and I want to be sure my music does this for deaf/HOH people and everyone.”

In order to lift people’s spirits at the beginning of the pandemic, Amira began posting videos on TikTok of herself singing and using sign language so her music could reach her deaf fans as well. She was surprised by how quickly she was able to amass a large audience. It was through her videos that she caught the attention of a talent scout for MTV’s new music competition show for rising TikTok singers, Becoming a Popstar. After a three-month process, Amira was one of those picked to be a contestant on the show.

Becoming a Popstar, as Amira describes, is different from other music competition shows we’ve all come to know over the years. “Well, first of all, it’s all original music. There’s not a single cover,” she says. “We have to write these songs in like a day or two and then meet with our producers, meet with our directors. Every week, we are producing a full project for people to vote on and decide if they’d listen to it on the radio.”

To make sure her deaf/HOH audiences can feel her songs, she makes sure to “add more bass, guitar, and violin in unique patterns.” She also incorporates “higher pitch sounds with like chimes, bells, and piccolo,” because, she says, they’re easier to feel. “But it’s less about the kind of instrument and more about how I arrange the pattern of the song. Everything I do is to create an atmosphere, a sensation, to make my music a multi-sensory experience.”

She says that working alongside the judges–pop stars Joe Jonas and Becky G, and choreographer Sean Bankhead – has helped expand her artistry. “Joe was really more about the vocal quality and the timber and Becky was really about the passion of [the song] and being convinced this was something you believed in,” she says. “And what was really great about [our choreographer] Sean is that obviously he’s a choreographer to the stars – Lil Nas X, Normani – but he didn’t only focus on choreo, he focused on stage presence, he focused on the overall message of the song. And I think all those critiques week to week helped us hone in on what we wanted to be saying with our next song.”

As her star rises, it’s been both her Muslim faith and her friends, whom she calls “The Glasses Gang” (“because none of us can see!”), that continue to ground her. “The Muslim and the Muslima community have really gone hard [supporting me] and all these people have come together and I truly appreciate them,” Amira says. “I have just been flooded with DMs and emails and texts from [young muslim kids] people who have just been so inspired,” she says. “People who have said they have never seen anything like this, that I embody a lot of the style that they wanted to see and that the message hit them, which is really the most important thing to me.”

Throughout the show’s production, she was able to continue to uphold her faith practices with the help of the crew, such as making sure her food was halal, having time to pray, dressing modestly, and working with female choreographers. “If people can accept this, can learn, and can grow, and bring more people into the fold of this industry, then I’m making a real difference,” she says.

Though she didn’t win the competition, this is only the beginning for Amira. Whether it’s on Becoming a Popstar or her videos online, Amira has made it clear she has no plans on going anywhere but up. “I’m so excited that I’ve gotten this opportunity because this is really, truly what I think I’m meant to do.”
