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.

BLK + GRN

From multivitamins to feminine wash, BLK + GRN can get your body right from the inside out. So when you're on the search for a good moisturizer that will last, this is definitely one of the places you should look.

The body scrub's ingredient list features essential oils like peppermint, tea tree, and fresh herbs like sweet basil. As for moisturizers, one of the most popular ones is the Daily Greens Whipped Moisturizing Cream, which specializes in protecting your skin in harsh weather and making sure it keeps its glow.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
