Mya says that the true secret behind her ageless beauty is self-care.

It's been 22 years since Mya dropped her debut album and just like wine, our good sister is only getting finer with time. While this may seem like modern-day witchcraft to many, the singer says that the true secret behind her ageless beauty is self-care.

Mya, who celebrated her 41st birthday earlier this month, is proof that black will only crack if you're not taking care of it, and one of the many ways she does that is by sticking to a strict vegan diet. In a previous interview, she explained:

"Some of the changes I've experienced since being vegan, I'm no longer anemic. I'm intaking so many more healthy foods: vegetables, nuts, greens, seeds that are iron-rich."

Along with improving her coverall health, Mya says that going vegan has done wonders when it comes to her skin:

"I thought you had to have meat to have protein and get your iron, and that's just false information. I no longer get sick. Dairy has mucus buildup, which is awful for singers. I don't get sick. My skin is clear. I lost 30 pounds. I don't have to go to the gym as much, and I just have clarity…Everything in my life has benefited me just eating natural foods."

1.Change Your Eating Habits 

"For great skin, it's inside out. Drinking lots of water as well as lots of natural juices. Trying to get away from the sugars, which will break you out. Trying to stay away from fried foods is my third rule because the oils come out in your skin. Trying to eat as many raw foods as possible to help in skin recovery."

2.Invest In Yourself 

"When you invest in yourself, and I'm talking every aspect of yourself: financially, spiritually, emotionally, physically, you get younger. It's still possible to have a beautiful life and you really have to stop listening to what the world says is best for you and do what truly makes you happy."

3.Try Natural Alternatives To Beauty Products  

"I use natural coconut oil instead of makeup remover. I use shea butter for sunblock. I take mango peels and rub them on my skin for moisturization or a mask. I use sour sop or the inside of guava to exfoliate It helps me rejuvenate really quick."

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
