Angela Bassett Shares Her Ageless Beauty Secrets


On our Black Women in Hollywood red carpet, the always-glowing Angela Bassett dished on two of her best beauty tricks.

When asked about her last online purchase, the actress proved to be quite the beauty junkie.

"You know 'us'—Hairfinity!" She was referring to the hair growth vitamin brand. The formula includes a B-Vitamin complex that is reported to nourish both hair and scalp —the product has gained popularity in recent months.

Bassett's second to last online purchase? More beauty. "Just before [Hairfinity], I bought bearberry extract. Sometimes we have issues with hyperpigmentation. This is an all-natural skin lightener, unlike hydroquinone."

So there you have it. The next time you look at Angela and think, how the heck does she look so amazing? Think bearberry.

The live stream of the 7th annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood red-carpet aired Thursday at 2:30 p.m. EST. Catch a recap of the action here.
