Celebrity News

As the seasons change and temperatures continue to drop, our skincare routines must also evolve and thanks to Laura Harrier's latest interview with ESSENCE, we have details on the skincare routine you need to keep your glow-on-go all damn year.

The Hollywood star revealed that although she's never been much of a beauty enthusiast, she takes her skincare very seriously. Laura explained:

"I love skincare but have never been into anything too involved. I would love to be one of those girls who have those 12-step routines, but that's so not me. I wash my face every day with Clarins' amazing Gentle Foaming Cleanser, I sometimes follow that up with their camomile toner depending on what mood my skin is in. Then I pat on Clarins Double Serum to my face and neck. Then it's eye cream, always. No matter how tired I am, I never forget eye cream. I'll top that off with a good moisturizer. I like to keep the routine simple by using products that I trust."

Among the products that Laura can't live without is her Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate, which according to the actress, is one of her ultimate skincare must-haves.

"I seriously don't know what I was doing before I starting using this serum. I honestly notice a difference when I don't have it on. It delivers great anti-aging benefits and leaves my skin so glowy."

In her interview with ESSENCE, Laura also dropped a few of her most coveted beauty tips, one of which also happens to be an unconventional way to curb your morning caffeine cravings:

"One of the biggest takeaways is to not sleep in makeup EVER, which is so much easier said than done. Whenever I come home from a super long night, I make a point to always remove my makeup and not face-plant in the pillow like I may want to. I also dunk my face in a big bowl of ice water first thing in the morning before events. I leave my face in the bowl for as long as I can stand it and my skin feels instantly more awake. It's like a big cup of coffee, but for my skin!"
"Another thing I'll also always do is a cream mask on the plane. I take a make-up wipe and clean my whole face, then apply a clear mask instead of a sheet one so I don't look crazy to the people around me! Right now I'm loving Clarins SOS Hydra Mask. It feels so good and really brings my skin back to life. Then I'll spray a rose water on top. Although we're not traveling much these days, I will be sure do that when work starts back up again."

When it comes to combatting dryness and finding stress-related skincare solutions, Laura had this to say:

"Probably how much my mental health affects my skin. I noticed how my frustration with everything going on in the world really made my body ache and my face a bit dry. Yoga has been a godsend. I need to use super hydrating products to combat dryness. I slather my face with Clarins Multi-Active Night Cream at the end of the day and wake up the next morning hydrated and refreshed. For my hair, I've rediscovered the beauty of a nice long deep conditioner! Olaplex is my go-to."

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

5 Times Megan Thee Stallion & Pardison Fontaine Showed Their Love On The 'Gram

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine. The “Pressurelicious” artist’s fans were in for a surprise a few days ago after Megan posted a photo of herself lying on the floor with her legs up and wrapped around Pardi’s waist. Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
