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!"

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
