“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.

Yara Shahidi’s ‘black-ish’ Spinoff Gets A Name Change

Freeform changed the name of Yara Shahidi’s ‘black-ish’ spinoff series from ‘college-ish’ to the what i think is much better ‘grown-ish.’

via Deadline:

Saturday Night Live alum Chris Parnell, Emily Arlook (The Good Place), and Trevor Jackson (American Crime) have been tapped as series regulars on the comedy, joining previously cast Shahidi and Deon Cole. Parnell and Jackson will reprise the roles they originated in the planted spinoff episode of black-ish, while Arlook plays the role originally played in the black-ish episode by Mallory Sparks.

The series, from ABC Signature Studios, will start production next month and is set to premiere early 2018 on Freeform and the Freeform App .grown-ish follows the Johnson’s eldest daughter Zoey (Shahidi) as she heads off to college and quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest. Deon Cole plays Charlie, Dre’s eccentric and unpredictable co-worker at Stevens & Lido. Arlook plays Miriam, a freshman know-it-all at Southern California University with a no holds barred attitude. Parnell plays the dean of Southern California University. Jackson will portray a socially-conscious sophomore at Southern California University.

“grown-ish reflects what we’ll be dealing with in the show – that in between place where you’re not quite an adult but facing grown world problems for the first time,” said creator and executive producer Kenya Barris. “Where black-ish examines what it means to be black, grown-ish is an examination of what it is and what it means to be grown.”

Barris, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland and Brian Dobbins are executive producers of the series. grown-ish is one of two upcoming single-camera comedy series on Freeform, along with Alone Together.

After watching the backdoor pilot during this last season of ‘black-ish,’ I can’t WAIT to see more!
