Tell us a little about yourself…
I’m a curly-haired Capricorn on a mission to make the most out of every day I’m given! I dream of moving to Bali or Tulum (give me all the tropical sanctuary vibes) and love ending the day with a bit of cannabis and a cocktail.
Can you describe your skin type?
I have combination skin that tends to react to seasonal and hormonal changes so I do like to switch up my products based on what my skin needs!
What are your skin goals?
I’m all about the glow, baby! My definition of skin goals is clear, hydrated, glowing skin.
What do you look for when creating a skincare routine?
I’m super low maintenance so I really love it when my routine is streamlined and every step or product is targeted to meeting my skin’s needs! I’ve been making the move to all clean products this year and I’m really excited about that!
First thoughts when trying the Bodycare Regimen
The first thing I noticed after using Goldfaden MD for a week was how soft and smooth my skin felt. I typically forget about exfoliation in my routine, but after using the Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub, I don’t think I’ll ever stop exfoliating regularly. There’s a noticeable difference in the way my skin feels after cleansing with the Pure Start and mixing that with a bit of the Doctor’s Scrub. My face feels clean and physically lighter (bye bye dead skin!).
2nd week… We’re seeing magic happen! I’ve always been pretty insecure about my dark circles and any small discoloration that comes from blemishes in the past so I am so excited to see how well the Wake Up Call and Bright Eyes have worked with my skin. After applying the two products at night, I wake up not only feeling refreshed but looking like I got a full night’s beauty sleep. My eyes are less dark and puffy and the discoloration on my skin has definitely brightened up. It makes me so happy to have products that really do the work!
3rd week… It’s like night and day from when I began this skincare routine! My skin texture is smooth and hydrated with my pores tighter than they’ve ever been! Hallelujah! What I love most about the results of the Bodycare Regimen is that I can see AND feel a difference in my skin. My skin tone has evened out and is brighter than ever. I’m feeling more confident with the appearance of my under eyes and I’m so excited that I’ve found clean products that really work.
Is clean beauty something that you feel passionate about?
Definitely. I think you can really tell a difference in how your skin feels and responds to clean products. In these past few years (my post-college years lol), I’ve started caring more about what it means to be “healthy” and have good overall “wellness” and ultimately, it all comes down to caring about what you’re putting into AND onto your body. Your skin is the largest organ in your body so we’ve got to give it only the best of the best and when it comes to skincare, that’s clean beauty.
What else do you feel passionate about?
I’m extremely passionate about mental wellness and destigmatizing the occurrence of mental illness in black women. As a recovering work-a-holic who lives with daily anxiety and depression, I know what it feels like to not understand what’s happening in your brain and wish more than anything that there was someone who looked like you to hold your hand and say everything is going to be OK. I’d really like to be that person for other people.
How do you stay focused and motivated throughout the day?
I try to schedule my day in productivity blocks so that I know when I need to focus on certain things, but also have time to decompress and let my mind rest between switching projects. As someone who mentally switches between multiple projects and type of work daily, I’ve learned rest is crucial to staying motivated without burnout.
What are some of your favorite foods that keep your skin healthy?
I love avocados in all contexts: guacamole, smoothies, salads – if it has avo in it, i love it.
What’s on your WFH playlist?
Currently, I have ‘WAP’ by Cardi B and Meg Thee Stallion on repeat!
