#TraceeTaughtMe: 5 Beauty Tips From Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee Ellis Ross has proven time and time again that women of color are a force to be reckoned with. She's a beacon of light and advocate for women who refuse to submit to conformity and slays consistently while doing it, not to mention she hasn't aged in about 20 years.

The Black-ish actress admitted that the life of a multi-talented powerhouse can be intense and took to Instagram to share some of the tips from her magical fountain that keeps her looking almost half her age.

Work it Out

My skin glows more than ever after a workout that really makes me sweat. Tracee Ellis Ross once said that she hit the gym four to six times a week for 90 minutes at a time to keep her face and body snatched. She told E!:

"I do hit the gym the very hard. I am known to do a 6 a.m. workout if I have an 8 a.m. call. I make sure to go three of four times a week, which is good. I sweat it out. I usually do 90 minutes."

If you're like me and can't quite commit as much time to your fitness routine, try to get your heart rate up 3-4 times a week for 30 minutes, drink plenty of water, and wait on your glow up baby.

Pour it Up

A glass a wine a day keeps the doctors away, according to Tracee. It's been reported that red wine is filled with antioxidants and can improve endurance and performance. Tracee has been vocal about the importance in having a good fitness regime, and by using supplements like red wine and vitamins, you'll be able to optimize your workout.

In Living Color

When you look good, you feel good. Tracee is known for her choice in bold lip colors that she rocks any and everywhere, including the gym. She said that she likes to wear a red lip to the gym so that when she catches a glimpse of herself in the mirror she looks as fierce as she feels.

She said:

"I don't like foundation. I love the look of a fresh face with a pop of color on the lips. It makes me feel so good. I'll even wear a red lip to the gym. I do the Tracy Anderson Method, so there's a lot of mirror work involved. When I see my red lips reflecting back at me, I'm like, 'Yeah, girl, that's right!'"

For Longer Lasting Lip Wear

When you're rocking a bold lip color, it's important that it lasts with minimal need to reapply. Tracee suggests using a piece of oil-absorbing paper to remove excess oils and ensure that her pigment stays poppin all damn day.

To Reduce Wrinkles

Many stars use a depuffer as an anti-aging serum. Tracee recently recorded her routine using a depuffer and facial massage tools to increase blood flow and help with acne breakouts. She captioned her video:

"SWIPING AWAY THE YEARS ~ with face massage / de-puffer tools (this is what happens when you buy sh*t on Instagram😂) just to be clear...I have no interest in going back in time but I'm always game for some self-care or a beauty treatment!"

Stay Hydrated

Muva Tracee doesn't play when it comes to hydration, and it shows in the appearance of her flawless mug. She posted a video giving herself the aesthetician treatment while traveling in first class that proves how real the moisturization struggle really is. To keep her skin all the way together when she travels, the actress makes sure to hydrate her face before, during, and after a flight. She said:

"I'm really big on hydration. I've actually never seen my fingers doing that, but I do that every time I put moisturizer on, period."

Along with the tips above, Tracee said that enzyme peels and hydrating masks are also tools that should be implemented into your beauty routine to achieve your ultimate #BeautyGoals. Now go, Queen, use these tools to set forth and slay!

Masturdating: A TikTok Dating Trend That We Should Totally Get Behind

Imma tell y’all what — it seems like not one week goes by when I don’t see some sort of so-called term that has me like, “What in the world?” For instance, when I first stumbled upon “self-partnering,” honestly, I laughed. Then shared it with some other single people as well as married folks I know. And I kid you not, every individual was like, “What the heck does that mean?” When I told them that it was yet, one more way to seemingly define single living, basically everyone’s follow-up was, “Oh, brother.”
