Tamera Mowry-Housley Dropped The Skincare Products You Should Add To Your Arsenal ASAP

Tamera spilled the info on the semi-high-end skincare routine that's worth the splurge.

Beauty & Fashion

You can sleep if you want to, but not on Tamera Mowry Housley's yasss-worthy skin. The 41-year-old mother-of-two graced our TV screens for the first time in 1994 and more than two decades later, sis is still serving up bare-faced beauty on a daily.

Tamera recently spilled all the details on how to get your skin TV-ready, and according to her, it starts with getting to know it. In a YouTube tutorial, she explained:

"It's very important to know what kind of skin you actually have and it could be tricky for women because sometimes it changes throughout the years. Right now, I have a mixture of dry and oily skin."

Tamera went on to explain that it wasn't until later in her adult life that she discovered that the dry patches she had been burdened with over the years were a result of an underlying skin condition:

"My facialist, Shani Darden, who I absolutely love, she's the one who discovered it. Growing up. I just thought they were just like weird dry areas. She was like, 'Tamera, you actually have eczema, so it's really important that you start taking care of that.'"

Tamera is a strong believer in switching it up and spilled the info on the semi-high-end skincare routine that's worth the splurge.

I.S. Clinical Cleansing Complex

"I love this because it literally gets all the makeup off your face. As you guys know I do movies, I'm also in the daytime talk show 'The Real' so I can wear a lot of makeup. It's really important that you get all of that stuff off."
$42

Nutiva Organic Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil

Tamera revealed that incorporating coconut oil in your routine is a lifehack that will save you hundreds of dollars in makeup wipes and micellar water.

Shani Darden Daily Cleansing Serum

"Shani Darden, as I mentioned, is my facialist. Love you Shani! She's killing it in the facialist game. She has her own line. It's called Shani Darden and I use some of her products. One product is the Daily Cleansing Serum. This feels like butter when you put it on your face, it's awesome and it gets rid of a lot of makeup as well."
$76

I.S. Clinical Pro-Heal Serum Advance+

A good serum is hard to find and easy to break the bank but Tamera guarantees that a little goes a long way with the I.S. Clinical Pro-Heal Serum Advance+.

"This is my secret. I am in love like this thing is my boyfriend. There are tons of vitamin C serums out there and they are great because they help give your skin that extra glow and at the same time they help you get rid of fine lines and wrinkles."
$148

Dr. Nigma Talib Hydrating and Plumping Serum No1

The Housley Life/YouTube

More money, more serums is my motto, and Tamera agrees.

"This one, in particular, it helps plump your skin and hydrates your skin so it never really looks dry and as you can see, I'm going light to heavy with my products. This serum is just a little bit heavier than the vitamin C serum and this serum you can also use day and night."
$185

Shani Darden Daily Oil-Free Moisturizer

The talk show host says this light, oil-free moisturizer is perfect for combination skin.

Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 

The Housley Life/YouTube

"When I was growing up I thought because I was a woman of color, I didn't have to use sunblock because I thought I'm not going to burn. The sun loves me. As you get older it doesn't matter how dark you are, you still can get those little sunspots and you can still damage your skin from the sun. So it's really, really, really important that you use sunscreen."

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.)

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.

When I think about actresses who have been cultural figures throughout my lifetime, Gabrielle Union-Wade is truly one of the first names that come to mind. I can recall being on the playground in grade school urging my friends to learn the cheer routines from Bring it On just as easily as I can remember a few years ago watching Being Mary Jane, crying from the relatability of Mary Jane's life struggles (a story for another day). It's inspiring to watch a powerful black woman whose art has been a consistent source of entertainment and influence. Although I must say, I think many of us have grown to cherish her personal journey and stories just as much.

Feed-in braids have become one of the hottest hair trends on the scene. These types of braids are created by "feeding-in" pieces of hair extensions to the main braid so that it gradually grows in size. It gives the illusion that the hair is directly growing from the scalp, which comes in clutch for styles that requires synthetic hair. This type of styling allows for a more natural look at the hairline and it protects your edges and hairline from excessive tension from heavy hair extensions thus, reducing the likelihood of traction alopecia (or loss of hair from the hairline.) And for women of color, tight braids or pulling the hair back too tight is one leading cause of this type of hair loss.

As the winds cool and the leaves change colors, it is without fail that I get this invigorating feeling. Potentially a feeling left over from childhood where every September presents a new opportunity to reinvent yourself, or possibly the contagious buzz of fashion weeks across the globe with streets lined with inspiration for how to style fall's hottest trends. Regardless, there's no doubt that my love of fashion rears its head at this time and always pulls me back into the fold. The fun, albeit overwhelming, thing about this season is the sheer volume of trends presented on the runways. In many ways, we're taking a trip down memory lane, but in other ways, we're seeing the rules of fashion being reinvented in front of our eyes.
