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."

When we think of R&B, we think of soul. Soul, by definition, is emotional or intellectual energy or intensity, especially as revealed in a work of art or an artistic performance. Black people are soul. Everything about us. Our hair. Our energy. Our skin. And, without a doubt, the creativity that courses through every inch of who we are. So, when it comes to our music, spiritual experiences are often what we call them. Makes sense, for there are no other people who remain unbroken the way we do. And every so often, an artist comes along who seems to be the physical manifestation of all that we are.

In xoNecole's Finding Balance, we profile boss women making boss moves in the world and in their respective industries. We talk to them about their business, and most of all, what they do to find balance in their busy lives.

As the summer comes to an end, we must welcome the time for change. Say goodbye to summer and hello to cooler weather! And we know what that means ladies: We have to switch up our fashion trends, how we wear our hair, and even our skincare routines. When it comes to skincare, we as Black queens have to make sure our products are on point for all the seasons. It is crucial for us to protect our blessed and melanated beauty.

You would think with the amount of trends and dollars being put behind beauty brands, that there would be better representation in the medical field to help us understand our skin better from the jump. Unfortunately, Black physicians only make up 5% of the physician population, and if we want to talk about Black dermatologists specifically, well that number is even lower.

It can be more than challenging trying to balance childcare, COVID-19 prevention (hey, Delta), and work. It's hard enough not worrying about whether your kid's school will cancel in-person classes or shut down altogether while facing the not-so-usual growing pains of children and teens who are forced to live in whatever phase of a pandemic we're in right now. (I mean, is it really post-pandemic? Is it halfway done or just beginning? And what's "normal" about this "new" environment?)

Moms, we feel your pain.

And it's that commitment to being unapologetic in telling her truth that draws others to her like the light that she is.

As the saying goes, there is nothing new underneath the sun. So it comes as no surprise that something as groundbreaking as the graphic eyeliner look trend from a couple of years ago is making its rounds again as a must-try beauty trend for the fall season. Saying goodbye to the traditional thick-wit-it non-floating winged liner and hello to the new wave of if-it's-up-then-it's-up-then-it's-stuck eye makeup looks is the ultimate fall beauty move. It's the floating crease for us.
