On the one thing that gives Black women that extra glow:
One product that gives black women a glow I love is Danessa Myricks Enlight highlighter in Love, it works on all women of color.
On great skin from the inside out: Every morning, I flush with a cup of water with lemon and a few drops of liquid oxygen. I drink about a gallon of water a day — flushing your body with water is powerful. Then I drink a cup of fresh celery juice.
On the one tip or trick that’ll give you flawless looking skin:
Skincare is important so invest in great products. My go-to, Pili Ani the Ultra Moisturizing Cream, is amazing and the beauty elixir is my daily regimen. A fun tip when applying your foundation — wet your beauty blender and add a drop of philosophy Liquid Highlighting Gold Drops to your skin, this allows the foundation to sheer out really nice and the extra glow gives your skin a healthy vibrant look!
