Meagan Good Just Dropped Her Skincare Routine & You Need The Details ASAP

Less is more.

Beauty & Fashion

The skin is our body's largest and fastest growing organ, so why do we tend to neglect it the most?

As a young, vibrant teenager, my skincare routine was nonexistent and my face was blessed to have whatever dollar store body wash I had at the time. As a grown ass woman, I follow my A.M. and P.M. skin and body care routine to the letter because the alternative is a pair of relentlessly ashy knees and a face full of cystic acne that just won't quit.

I know that I can't be the only woman in the world who has spent hundreds of dollars in search of a miracle cure that will stop my sebum-making glands in their tracks, but Meagan Good just dropped a few beauty tips that might help us on our quest.

Meagan Good was cast in her first major film in 1995, and she hasn't aged since. Since the days of Cousin Skeeter, the bare-faced beauty has been our #BeautyGoals, and even after more than a decade, she's finally spilling the tea on how to find this elusive fountain of youth. Recently, the 37-year-old actress sat down with ESSENCE and dished about how she keeps her hair, skin, and body on 10 at all times, here's what we learned:

Less > More

After landing her first role in Friday, Meagan was forced to grow up in the spotlight. After years of heavy-duty glam, she's decided to take a different approach to her daily beauty routine. The Intruder actress said that these days, less is more and her daily essentials are minimal AF.

Meagan's everyday beauty routine includes lip balm, sunscreen, and eyelash extensions. Earlier this year, Meagan shared via Instagram that she stopped using foundation four years ago and it was the best decision she could have ever made. She said in her caption:

"I decided four years ago never to wear foundation again. Instead I opt for tinted moisturizer or nothing. On fancy days I'll add a lil concealer under the eyes, bronzer and light contour. I've got to say: best decision I've made to combat the pre-aging and damage that foundation and some face make up can do."

Switch Up Those Tresses

When a a woman switches up her hair, nine times out of ten, she's about to change her life. Meagan says that she keeps her beauty game exciting by making her tresses match her mood.

"When I change my hair it's about expressing what I'm feeling in that season."

She warned that although she's rocking a short, blonde cut, for now, being too heavy-handed with the bleach can be a bad idea.

"So far I've only bleached it four times, but I know my hair is like, 'Girl, we've been so patient and kind, but if you keep going in this direction, we're going to start getting crispy.'"

Start From The Inside-Out

Your skin can't reach it's ultimate glow-up if you're out here stressing. One of the most essential practices that Meagan employs to reach optimum beauty is self-care. Along with making sure to switch it up and keep it simple, Meagan also makes sure to make herself feel good with bountiful bubble baths and mindful meditation sessions:

"I get up, I pray, meditate and say my affirmations. I'm a massage connoisseur, especially deep tissue. Anywhere, anytime, any chance I get, I make it happen."

If You Tired, Be Quiet & Go To Sleep

In a previous interview, Meagan emphasized that all the products in the world won't do you any good if you're exhausted. According to Meagan, one of the best things you can do for your skin is take a nap. She explained:

"Let me reiterate rest. No matter how much good food you eat or exercise you do, sometimes you just need to take time, breathe, and rest. There's nothing like it to help recharge your batteries."

Along with these body care tips, here are the skincare products that Meagan has used to get her epidermis all the way together:

5 Things You Should Consider Before Moving Abroad

Have you considered moving abroad? In 2021, I started life as a digital nomad. A "digital nomad" is a phrase that came to popularity due to the pandemic and it describes a person who lives a location-independent lifestyle. Since I started working and traveling simultaneously, I've traveled to Mexico, London, Dubai, and the Caribbean. According to a report by Upwork, 22% of the American workforce will be remote workers by 2025 — thus giving more people than ever the opportunity to live and work abroad.

rihanna-red-nails-red-nail-theory

Red nails have always intrigued me—namely because the red nails were always on the fingers of a well-put-together woman with perfectly laid hair, a perfume that lingered, and an heir of confidence orbiting them. Oh, and they usually drove a luxury car. I assume this is why we're all discussing the "red nail theory," a hot topic on TikTok thanks to GirlBossTown discovering that wearing red nail polish was responsible for an uptick in male attention. The #redtheory hashtag has 100 million views and counting. So, let's take a further look into this anecdotal theory.
