Spring is right around the corner, which means it’s time to revamp our skincare routine. Many of us spent the winter months treating dry skin, but now it’s time to focus on another issue, dullness.

Cold weather is notorious for stripping our skin of radiance and dulling down our complexion; but the good news is, Peace Out Skincare just launched a brand new product to help us reclaim our glow just in time for spring.

Today, the brand released its new Peace Out Dullness Brightening Face Pads that reverse dullness in an instant.  

The double-sided gauze pads are saturated in an advance seven-acid complex, which includes healthy exfoliants like glycolic acid and salicylic acid, for renewing our complexion.

By swiping the cotton side of the gauze across your face, you dissolve dead skin cells. And the mesh side helps to boost circulation to promote a gorgeous glow.

I have to mention that there may be some tingling involved but don’t be alarmed. That just means the treatment is working.  

The patches come in a set of eight and retail at Sephora for $24.

Here’s How Flordia Rapper $Not Got Ready For His NYC Show

This was originally posted on https://www.essence.com/fashion/heres-how-flordia-rapper-snot-ready-for-his-nyc-show/ along with the image used.

For his first tour, the 22-year-old rapper $not has a pretty easy wardrobe; a hoodie. In fact, the Flordia based rapper has made this look his aesthetic. A black hoodie with his hood scrunched to his face and black airforce ones.

In this current climate, new artists usually have a crazy social media tactic that catapults their career but leaves a questionable reputation for listeners. Instead, $not has let his mysterious flair and music ultimately grow his following. “You will get so much further in life by being authentic,” he tells ESSENCE. And according to his numbers, he’s right. He currently holds over 400k followers on social media and an average of 2 million listeners on Spotify a month. With only a few hit singles like ‘Gosha‘ and ‘Megan,’ the rapper is gearing up first his first project to drop this year.

On his North American tour, ESSENCE got a chance to chat with $not about authenticity, his favorite designers, and what his hoodie symbolizes for him. Read below.

Goodnight

A post shared by $NOT ⛈ (@snot) on Feb 8, 2020 at 9:51pm PST

NH: There are certain musicians who have an aesthetic, yours has obviously been wearing a hoodie. What does that symbolize for you?

$NOT: I used to wear my hoodie up in high school because I’d be in my own world and it turned into my brand as I started to make music. It started to get people’s attention a lot so I stuck with it.

NH: You’re on tour right now. I can imagine getting ready for your set is pretty simple but are there any specific hoodies/brands you like? Are there any you don’t like? What makes a hoodie bad?

$NOT: On this tour, I’ve been wearing a black Champion hoodie and my merch that’s available at shows. I really like hoodies from Palm Angels and Supreme and there is one smaller brand called Famine that I will wear any hoody that they make.There are two things that make a hoodie bad. The first is when it doesn’t have strings in the hood and the second is when it’s a zip-up.

“If I’m able to provide for my family and take care of myself then what does what other people think about me matter at all?” – $NOT

NH: I always struggle with if I should wear my chains tucked in or outside of the hoodie. Which is a better look?

$NOT: I think that wearing them outside might look good on you but personally I wear mine on the inside. I don’t have too many chains because I’m more a bracelet dude.

NH: We normally see artists coming into the industry trying to live above their means, and being unauthentic when it comes to their style but, you’ve managed to keep it consistent. How important is authenticity to you?

$NOT: You will get so much further in life by being authentic. It seems like everyone is so caught up in trying to be perceived as successful instead of actually being successful. If I’m able to provide for my family and take care of myself then what does what other people think about me matter at all?

NH: What are your favorite fashion brands out right now?

$NOT: Famine, Stone Island, Marashi, Nike (black AF1s only), Louis Vuitton, Off-White x Nike.

Serena Williams Talks Her Latest Collection

This was originally posted on https://www.essence.com/fashion/serena-williams-talks-latest-collection-at-nyfw/ along with the image used.

Serena Williams is the embodiment of a businesswoman. From her venture capitalist firm to her award-winning tennis career, she is continuing to break barriers for working mothers.

This fashion week, Williams tapped into another one of her business ventures and something that is very special to her – fashion design. The tennis athlete presented her first collection this past September at NYFW followed by a second intimate presentation earlier this month. “I actually went to school for fashion design,” Williams exclaimed at her presentation. Before her show, Williams sat with Vogue Editor-In-Cheif, Anna Wintour to briefly discuss her step into the fashion industry.

“I’m already turning around working on September,” Williams said to ESSENCE after making a few rounds at her presentation. Fashion insiders like Elaine Welteroth, Andre Leon Talley, and Lindsay Wagner were amongst the few of the industry’s elite present.

ESSENCE got a chance to chat with the entrepreneur directly after her show about her latest collection. Read Below.

“I was thinking of some of my favorite places to travel, which ultimately when I thought about it, was Africa.” – Serena Williams

NH: What was the creative direction behind this collection you presented?

Williams: It was a fashion passport. I was thinking of some of my favorite places to travel, which ultimately when I thought about it, was Africa. That’s where I got the giraffe print from. And then also the vegan leather because I feel like a lot of things are being killed and we’re not saving the earth. We can all just do one small thing and help out so that was also a lot of our inspiration.

NH: How was that producing your second fashion show?

Williams: I just wanted to do something different and September was more runway. And this was about the designer. A lot of people don’t understand designers and what we think about, but I wanted people to know where I came from. I’ve actually been designing for years and went to school for it. It’s not just something I upped and was like, “Oh, I want to design.” It’s like, “No, I actually studied it,” and so I think it’s really important.

NH: Why did you decide to present in a more intimate setting?

Williams: It was very few celebrities here, just some of my closest friends. I wanted to focus on the media because they have helped the brand out a lot and also I wanted them to feel special. This is about them, not necessarily the pizazz and all the lights and the cameras.
