5 Skin Care Lines to Grow Your Glow

There was a time when Maybelline, Cover Girl and Loreal were the major players in the skin care game. Trying to find products to meet the needs of black women was a real struggle. We still don't entirely get the respect we deserve, as very little if any shelf space is made available for us melanated queens. But thank goodness for all the sisters out there who have changed the game and created some products we can now obsess over. I'm using this space to pay homage to the creators of these products. These are my picks. Check them out if you haven't already.

FIRST UP: BUTTAH

Buttah was founded in 2018. The products unite the best of nature and science in highly effective products for both women and men, formulated to reveal more radiant results.

SECOND: 54 Thrones

Grown on African soil and ethically sourced, beauty collections pay homage to the many African cultures, elegance and essence of the continent. Most of THE ingredients are sourced from cooperatives and artisans across Africa, like Shea Butter from Ghana and Uganda, Baobab oil from Nigeria, Argan oil from Morocco, Marula from South Africa and Jasmine and Neroli from Egypt are amongst dozens of active botanicals that come together to lay the foundation of their beauty formulas.

THIRD: OUI THE PEOPLE

Karen Young, founder of Oui the People, was forbidden from reading beauty magazines growing up. Why? She thinks her mother felt their content showcased a damaging ideal of beauty. Oui the People is dedicated to producing bodycare with mindful messaging that rejects perfection and champions individuality.
