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."

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.)

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.

When I think about actresses who have been cultural figures throughout my lifetime, Gabrielle Union-Wade is truly one of the first names that come to mind. I can recall being on the playground in grade school urging my friends to learn the cheer routines from Bring it On just as easily as I can remember a few years ago watching Being Mary Jane, crying from the relatability of Mary Jane's life struggles (a story for another day). It's inspiring to watch a powerful black woman whose art has been a consistent source of entertainment and influence. Although I must say, I think many of us have grown to cherish her personal journey and stories just as much.

Feed-in braids have become one of the hottest hair trends on the scene. These types of braids are created by "feeding-in" pieces of hair extensions to the main braid so that it gradually grows in size. It gives the illusion that the hair is directly growing from the scalp, which comes in clutch for styles that requires synthetic hair. This type of styling allows for a more natural look at the hairline and it protects your edges and hairline from excessive tension from heavy hair extensions thus, reducing the likelihood of traction alopecia (or loss of hair from the hairline.) And for women of color, tight braids or pulling the hair back too tight is one leading cause of this type of hair loss.

As the winds cool and the leaves change colors, it is without fail that I get this invigorating feeling. Potentially a feeling left over from childhood where every September presents a new opportunity to reinvent yourself, or possibly the contagious buzz of fashion weeks across the globe with streets lined with inspiration for how to style fall's hottest trends. Regardless, there's no doubt that my love of fashion rears its head at this time and always pulls me back into the fold. The fun, albeit overwhelming, thing about this season is the sheer volume of trends presented on the runways. In many ways, we're taking a trip down memory lane, but in other ways, we're seeing the rules of fashion being reinvented in front of our eyes.
