The Best Black-Owned Moisturizers To Keep Your Skin Hydrated This Winter

popular

Cold weather ain't no joke.


A while ago, my husband looked at my feet and before he could try and judge, I told him, "It's been a long winter." He was like, "More like a hard life." I couldn't even get offended because I knew that I, like many other ladies, let their feet go on a downward decline during the cooler months with the excuse that very few people, if any, will see them. It's the same thing for unshaven legs (but that's another topic).

The bottom line is just because it's cold outside, doesn't mean our melanin has to suffer. In fact, taking care of our skin and keeping it moisturized will call for less makeup work when summer starts peeking its head around again. And who knows more about keeping melanin on point than our fellow African-Americans?

We've taken the beauty industry by storm and this time of year is perfect to support Black-owned beauty lines with amazing products that keep our bodies moisturized all year long.

A big congratulations is certainly in store for the Jameses! Earlier this week, on September 14, LeBron and Savannah James celebrated their 8th year wedding anniversary. Symbolically speaking, the 8th year in marriage is usually represented by bronze. A mixed metal, bronze is durable and stronger than copper and iron (two symbols of earlier wedding anniversaries), which is why it is traditionally gifted to couples who make it to this milestone.

It's been 573 days since my last New York Fashion Week. That's one year, six months, and 24 days. The last time I was in Manhattan, February 2020, was just as Big Rona was placing a chokehold on the world. I would have never guessed that while I was living my best life in the NYC streets, a pandemic would soon change my life completely. Because of the state of the world, there were no shows in September and by February 2021, the fashion houses were trying to figure out how to put on runway shows which led many brands to the digital space.
