As an actress and an online ESL teacher, my goal is to always have (What I like to call) camera-ready skin. Yes, there is makeup, but I don’t always wear makeup when I’m not on set or recording an audition.

When I do, it’s always a really light amount so… yeah. I want to look as natural as possible. Therefore, my skin needs to look its best. So, let me show you what I use to get glowing and smooth skin.

Here’s How to Get Glowing Skin and Reduce Hyperpigmentation.

Since I have the issue of hyperpigmentation caused by acne, I use Alba Botanica’s Acnedote Deep Pore Wash. I first wet my face and neck and then lather the product between my hands.

I work this in on my face and neck (and sometimes on my chest, even though I don’t get acne there)  using the 60-second rule I learned from Ny, aka The Golden Rx. This is one of my favorite products because it contains salicylic acid and willow bark extract. Both are great for reducing acne and excess oil and it’s really gentle on my skin.

Cleansing:

Toning:

Next, I use Alba Botanica’s Acnedote Deep Clean Astringent with a cotton pad or with my hand. Don’t forget your neck and chest too. It helps to tone after cleansing because it will cleanse the skin even further. This toner also has willow bark and is oil-free. It leaves my skin feeling clean. This astringent has helped to reduce my dark marks.

Exfoliation:

Then, I use Minimo Glow Skin Brightening Face Scrub with the Minimo Scrubbie that came in the bundle that I ordered here. I use this scrub about 3 to 4 times a week. When I do use it, I leave the scrub on as a mask for about 10 minutes. This scrub is turmeric based, which if you don’t know, it can reduce dark spots and even skin tone.

It has turmeric, cinnamon, manuka honey, chamomile, and lemon. It also has no comedogenic oils. Therefore, no clogged pores. 

Conditioning.

Minimo Dejavu Sea Buckthorn Serum – Ebony Glass Co.- Morning Skincare Routine.

Moisturizing:

After that, I use the astringent again, but this time I’m only going to pat this into my skin. I’m not going to rub. I do it because this will help my skin to absorb the Minimo’s DÉJÀVU SEA BUCKTHORN FACE SERUM. I Use 1 pump and work the serum into my face and neck. This serum stimulates the healing process and balances the skin’s natural oil production.

Minimo Honeydew Daily Moisturizer- Ebony Glass Co. – Morning Skincare Routine.

After the serum, I add moisture by using Minimo’s Honeydew Hydrating Daily Moisturizer. I love this moisturizer. It lives up to its name and it leaves my skin feeling and looking dewy without making me look like oily.

Protection:

Black Girl Sunscreen – Ebony Glass Co. -Morning Skincare Routine.


To help combat hyperpigmentation and premature aging of my skin, I make sure to wear an SPF 30. I have this one by BlackGirl Sunscreen. It’s super moisturizing and it doesn’t leave me looking ashy. You want to wear your sunscreen on top of your moisturizer.

Love On Those Lips:

EOS Organic Natural Shea Lip Balm – Ebony Glass Co. – Morning Skincare Routine

Lastly, I finish my routine with my favorite organic lip balm by EOS in the flavor of strawberry sorbet.

This concludes my dark skin morning routine for hyperpigmentation.

Are We Obligated to Buy Black? My Response to Harsh Criticism Toward a Fellow YouTuber.

Hey, Everyone! I’m glad you paid a visit to my site. 😀

Are we obligated to buy black only? I buy black, but not all the time. I’m going to tell you why I asked.

So, couple nights ago I was up late catching up on my favorite YouTube channels and I clicked on Naptural85’s latest video on the Pantene Gold Series line. She did a great job reviewing the product like she normal does for product reviews and D.I.Y.s.
Watch the video here.
Yes, I am a fan of her’s, but not a Stan! Meaning, I am not one to think that she can do no wrong and I don’t agree or like everything she does. But in my head, she is a sister from another mister.
Usually, when I like a review, demo, vlog, etc. I may skip reading the comments because folks like to troll HARD! Yet, I read through the comments and I can’t remember why. Maybe I was going to leave a comment or question about the product… I don’t know because I got really distracted by comments like these.

“Pantene is hiring Blacks but it is not Black-owned. Of course they are not stupid, they know where the money is going to come from. Please support Black-owned companies. Keep the profits in the community!”

“sick and tired of whites profiting off of us. With all that’s going on in this world, I refuse to allow that to happen with MY money. Pantene doesn’t give a damn about any of us. They’re just trying to make a dollar. I will only support those who have a real interest in me and my people.”

” Sponsored products always get rave reviews, even though many people who use it don’t have the same result!”

“Love you Whit, but I support Black owned as much as I can. Pantene is white own and they see profit in including Black people..they’re not stupid, so I kind of ignore your tutorial sorry. Then again…Panteen got the big bucks and since your family is expanding maybe it’s not about Black but about green. I know your life long dream is owing a home and Boston is very expensive. This makes sense. Pantene has the big bucks for sponsorship, you do you.its about your family and your financial situation.”

What the hell?! Who are these people?!

That last comment is from Satan. That woman let Satan use her to be messy. I’m not playing when I say that either. She hit on VERY personal points of Whitney’s life and tried to make her feel guilty for doing what everyone else in the world does and that is whatever the hell they want. You don’t come at someone and mention their body, family, home, and money. That is one of the many things Satan does to bring us to crumble in defeat. Just pointing out who the real enemy is and no, it’s not that woman.

Everyone does whatever they want. Unless you are a newborn baby or have a disability, whatever you twitch your muscles to do is in your control to do. Period.

Yet, I respect some of the concerns that most white-owned companies don’t care about us and we should support our own people. White-owned companies are jumping on the fact that many of us have returned to our hair to its natural state because they are losing money from the fact that we no longer buy their relaxers or other products that cause more damage to our hair. They were the ones who lied and convinced us that our hair isn’t normal or manageable.

White-owned companies not caring about us is nothing new! Why are we acting like that’s a new thing? Did we think they cared about us when they we selling us relaxers? Flat irons? Teaching our children in their schools? Creating food deserts in our community causing us to heavily rely on their McDonald’s, Rally’s/ Checkers, and Burger King?

Anyway, my responses below shows a better light on how I feel about these comments and the notion of an obligation to buy only black-owned.

Apparently, I watch too much WWE with my husband and read the original comment in my Steve Austin voice.

There are more comments that follow my statements. Feel free to visit the video’s comment section and find my following responses.

I also, don’t care if the video was sponsored. I’m not going to get on a virtual soapbox and mention every unnatural, unsponsored or sponsored, and non-black-owned products that Whitney has featured on her channel. But they can be found if you search for them.

She COULD feature only black-owned hair care products on her channel and the same goes for me and my channel, but how honest would that be if that is not what we do in real life?

Why are people expecting YouTubers do create videos for free when you don’t do what you do for free? And millions of people watch YouTube videos all day long and the revenue from those ads are literally pennies compared to the work that goes into creating content that is pushed out daily for viewers. Creating high-quality (or even low-quality. Ahem!) YouTube videos frequently isn’t cheap or easy. This is coming from someone who is just getting close to 500 subscribers after I started almost two years ago.

Now, mind you I would have said the same thing if it were anyone else’s channel because I am strongly tired of some people acting like that there is an obligation to buy ONLY from black-owned companies. No one should feel so pressured to buy or even demo products and services JUST because they are black-owned. That’s like saying, I’m obligated to buy from companies ran by women because I am a woman. No! I buy what works, what fits, what costs less, what makes me feel better, what fits my values, from companies who show women that look like me, and what I like!

Every product or service that is black-owned won’t be to our liking and we aren’t obligated to keep spending money on things we don’t like. That’s wasteful.

If you want everything you use to be black-owned, there’s nothing wrong with that. I’ll be behind you. However, until you can find everything you want to use that is black-owned, keep using whatever the hell you want.

To me, the first step to acting like a free black woman is to realize that I am free to do what I please with what and whom I please and I shouldn’t be treated as if my “black card” is real and attached to how I spend my money… or lack thereof.

So, if we are obligated to buy black-owned everything? Then, we should be earning black-owned money, right?

Thanks so much for reading. Please subscribe to stay updated on posts that are coming out. I recently purchased some products that are black-owned and I will be doing an honest first impression with those products.

Please, leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Take care!
