Taking time to give your mind and spirit a much-needed break are two of the most crucial parts of self-care. For Black women, indulging in our favorite beauty and hair products is another way we carve out time to put ourselves first in the midst of the chaos.
During week one of the 2020 virtual ESSENCE Festival of Culture’s Beauty Carnival, beauty guru Danielle Gray joined ESSENCE Deputy Editor-in-Chief Allison McGevna for a candid conversation about what it looks like to incorporate beauty and skincare into your self-care routines.
The conversation, brought to you in partnership with AVEENO®, comes at a time when wellness and self-care are more important than ever. Check out the video above to hear Danielle’s top beauty products for self-care, some of which include the brand’s line of shower products. With ingredients like shea butter and soothing oats, the products are perfect for pampering your skin and turning your bathroom into your very own spa experience. Danielle follows that up with AVEENO® Skin Relief lotion, which balances your skin’s microbiome. (Pro-tip: Danielle says to use while your skin is still just a bit damp).
“It gives you 24-hour moisturization, which we love,” Danielle says.
