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."

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.
