How Tracee Ellis Ross Keeps Her Skin Poppin' Like The 4th Of July

Tracee Ellis Ross

If you don't believe in magic, just take one look at the skin on director, actress, and 47-year-old badass Tracee Ellis Ross, and I'm sure you'll change your mind. The popular saying "black don't crack" takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to Tracee, who takes after her mother in terms of unapologetic beauty and style, and the Black-ish actress hasn't been shy about sharing her skincare secrets. After recently going barefaced on the gram, she has us all wondering how to secure the skincare routine, but according to Tracee, beauty isn't about how you look, it's about how you feel. She told The New Potato:

"I think something is beautiful when it has an expression of truth. I see 'pretty' as something different; "pretty" has to do with physicality to me, and 'beauty' has to do with a feeling."

Although beauty is only skin deep, we're still going to need you to run us the details on your skincare system, sis. In the past, along with a lengthy list of both high-end and budget-friendly products that will keep your skin on 10 at all times, Tracee has also dropped a few tips on how to keep your skin looking like you just hopped out of a whole fountain of youth.

Oil-Absorbing Sheets

The best part about buying a new lipstick that's way out of your budget is knowing that you won't have to reapply every time you talk, chew, or drink. Tracee has the remedy to your blotchy lip-wear woes with oil-absorbing blotting papers that will keep your lips smooth and pigmented until the sun goes down.

Use A Facial Massager & Depuffer

Last year, jade rollers became a trending topic in the beauty world, but judging by this Instagram post by Tracee Ellis Ross, she's not new to this innovative beauty tool sh*t. She's true to it. Mastering the art of a facial depuffer and massager at the same damn time, Tracee reminds us that you can always teach your dry old skin some rejuvenating new tricks.

Full Body Mask

Your face isn't the only part of your body that deserves some attention during your skincare routine, and a full body mask may be the key to getting that dry epidermis all the way together. This may be an ideal method for women who batlle with acne, dry skin, and inflammation, and although these treatments are usually done at home, you can also snag a few dope DIY recipes for full body masks on Pinterest.

Morning Hydration

Please know that just because a very hot (and possibly humid) dry summer is right around the corner, you are not relieved of your skincare duties. One way Tracee keeps her youthful glow is by incorporating an effective moisturizer into her facial care system. For optimal results, be like Tracee. Don't be afraid to get a lil' rough wit it.

I think it's fair to say that most of us long to reach that place where the money resides, especially in the present times when life is so uncertain and people are likely to lose their jobs at any given moment. On the other hand, perhaps thanks to the plethora of entrepreneurs that document their journeys on social media, there's the sense that abundant financial wealth seems more accessible now than it ever has before. With that said, despite all the step-by-step guides to becoming rich available on the market, we can still hear the same question echoing in our heads: How do I get to the bag, though?
