Janelle Monáe

“I won’t sit here and say I’ve never had a pimple, but I try to have a really great diet, you know, lots of vegetables and fish,” the Dirty Computer singer explained to Glamour magazine. “And I think stress plays a huge part too. I’m a believer that the more I’m giving, the happier I am, and the more beautiful my exterior will be.”

“For someone who’s acne-prone, that’s coming from the overproduction of sebum and bacteria, which will then cause inflammation, this machine [TEI SPA OxyDerm High-Frequency Ozone Facial Tool] can be used at home at night to kill bacteria, and I use it everyday,” Browning shared with New York magazine’s shopping guide, ‘The Strategist.’ “I know not everyone can, but I’ve been loving it.”

“I take collagen pills, drink Kangen water, apple cider vinegar and take SuperFood by Dr. Schuzles [sic] daily,” Aiko wrote on Instagram in March, when explaining to her followers how she maintains her clear complexion. “I [used] to have cystic acne due to ovarian cyst. The b.c. [birth control pills] helps with that.”

“There is this focus on skincare and having a great base that I’ve learned from both sides of my family,” the Grown-ish star told Byrdie. “That starts with eating well, and using cardamom to cleanse is part of it. Cardamom is great for you and has a number of skincare benefits. One of the only ingredients in Persian tea is cardamom. So it’s really about finding those things, whether it’s a tea or juice, that help supplement your skincare routine through your diet. It’s about making sure that you internally take of yourself, that you focus on fixing more than what’s externally visible.”

Ashleigh Murray

“[My acne was] one hundred percent hormonal, and it was really bad, like huge blisters on my face,” the Riverdale star revealed to PopSugar. Murray swears by birth control, the IS Clinical Cleansing Complex cleanser and CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser to combat cystic acne.

Eco Styler Gel Has Ingredients That Cause Cancer?!

SHEIN -Your Online Fashion Jumpsuit

What In The Edges is going on?!? I thought I had heard it all when I heard that Eco Styler Gel could contain an ingredient that causes cancer! Ive read a few articles and watched a few videos.

I don’t know about you but the labels on most products are like reading chinese and I have no idea what the stuff listed really is unless i google it.  But thanks to the natural curly community online I was able to find out exactly what is in one of our favorite gel.

According to natural beauty vlogger, AlopeciaFreeWithJass, Eco Styler Gel does contain an agent that is known to cause cancer.  In a YouTube video she breaks down the ingredients in the popular gel and came across one troubling one, Tetrasodum EDTA. 

Tetrasodum is known for causing allergic reactions and is also linked to causing cancer if used.  This ingredient is also said to contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.  Additionally, according to the “U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Cosmetics Ingredient Review (CIR), triethanolamine is best suited for products that should be washed off after application.”

Of course, smaller amounts of Tetrasodum are safe but are you willing to take the risk?

The dramatic new ‘do is for Lathan’s leading role in the Netflix original film Nappily Ever After and Ive got to be honest its going to take some time for me to get use to this.

It definitely isn’t easy rocking a shaved head, but there are plenty of stars giving it a try. Lathan joins True Blood actress Danai Gurira and Chewing Gum star Michaela Coel, who both have proudly rocked bare heads.

Im still adjusting to this look on Sanaa. What do you think?
