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."

It was 2018 when I realized working in a toxic work environment and pursuing a high-stress career in Corporate America wasn't for me. But at the time, resources on how to take a career break were scarce. I researched, googled, and scrolled through Pinterest. I read blogs and listened to podcasts about other women who traveled and eventually made a career switch. But there wasn't a platform dedicated to strategizing an exit plan from the American lifestyle. At least, not for women of color. I was left to make these life-altering decisions on my own with little to no help or substantial resources.

When it comes to skincare, I have to say we are spoiled. We have a variety of products on the market that help us achieve that natural, youthful glow we all want. From gels, oils, serums, creams, foams, scrubs, and vitamins, we clearly can't go wrong. If you're obsessed with taking care of your skin or have been prone to skin problems like me, you've probably used retinol, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and benzoyl peroxide as part of your skincare routine. These are just common key ingredients that have been on the market for decades. Now, there are so many other types of acids and supplements that give your skincare routine the upgrade you didn't know it needed.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.
