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...
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!"
