Soon, winter will come to an end and it will be time to switch up our skincare routines yet again. Spring is coming, my good sisters, but Saweetie just stopped by Vogue to fill us in on a few beauty secrets that will have your skin icy AF year-round.

In the video, the 26-year-old "My Type" rapper explained that because puberty hit her early, her skincare journey began before she even started middle school. She explained:

"When I was like in fifth grade, I had a really bad puberty outbreak. I was living with my dad; men don't really know what to do with skincare, so my dad would just tell me to get, like, a hot rag and put it on my face."

While her father's misinformed beauty tips may have been doing more harm than good, Saweetie said that after discovering her daughter's skincare woes, her mother was quick to put her on game.

"And so then when I went to go visit my mom, she was horrified and was like, what's going on with your skin? And immediately put me on to like skincare products. I don't know what they were but my face, you know, cleared up immediately. It kind of goes with that saying, you know, if you know better you do better. But since I didn't know I was washing my face with hot rags and like body soap."

Now that Saweetie is on her know better, do better shit, there are a few secrets of her own that she keeps tucked away in her beauty arsenal, one of which is perfect for women with problematic pores. She explained that after washing with her cleanser and applying her Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask, she always rinses with cold water to minimize breakouts:

"Make sure you rinse, especially for my girls with big pores, with cold water, you do not want to leave your pores open for the makeup to seep in because that creates pimples. So make sure you wash with cold water."

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
