Here’s Why A Vibrator Is Part Of Toni Braxton’s Skincare Routine

Toni explains how a self-care session with her Trojan Vibrations Power Wand Deep Massager-a-day keeps wrinkles at bay.

Beauty & Fashion

It's been 27 whole years since Toni Braxton released her debut album, and more than two decades later, our good sis is still serving us looks for days.

Many have wondered how the singer hasn't aged a day since the 90s but luckily, Toni finally dropped the secret to her everlasting fountain of youth in the latest edition of Vogue's Beauty Secrets, and according to her, the key to looking 25 at age 52 is a daily session with her handy dandy vibrator. While many beauty aficionados opt for jade rollers and face steamers, Toni says that in her experience, a vibration-a-day is what keeps wrinkles at bay:

"This thing right here, OK, I'm going to be honest, it is a vibrator. But I call it a face tingler. It tingles the muscles in my face and gets them activated and working. I haven't used it on anything else other than my face, OK? Just FYI! I just kind of rub it and it just activates all those muscles, gets 'em together. We are working today, we are gonna be cute today!"

Along with dropping the details on her must-try beauty rituals, Toni also opened up about how doing her own makeup is a form of therapy for her. The beauty icon shared that while her style has switched up, her passion for all things beauty has remained the same:

"I love doing my own makeup; it kind of relaxes me. [In] the '90s I had a really thin eyebrow look… [but] 2020 gotta have something a little bit heavier. I never used to wear lashes…but then I learned about Brigitte Bardot and her lashes were everything."

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).

The beloved comedian grew up in the foster care system and originally wanted to be a foster mom, but with advice from her lawyers, she decided that adoption would be best.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"
