Feel THE GLOW With These Black-Owned Beauty Products
By Vicky Lin
Now, more than ever, is the time to recognize and support the black community in sustainable ways — whether it be ordering weekly dinners from your local black-owned restaurants or buying household goods from black-owned convenient stores. We can't just stop at a one-time donation or a two-time social media post. We should be actively incorporating the black community into our lives and into our communities.
For us skincare junkies, one simple method to sustainably celebrate black culture is to buy and adopt black-owned beauty products into our skincare routine! More often than not, these products are cruelty-free, vegan, and suitable for ALL skin types!
Here are a few products that I guarantee you'll instantly fall in love with :)
