    Naj Austin Drops Her Skin-Care Routine

    Launching a social and wellness club right before a pandemic and then pivoting it into a thriving digital community during an unprecedented time in history is no easy feat. And yet that’s exactly what entrepreneur Naj Austin has done. When Ethel’s Club opened in November 2020, it was the first social club established to serve people of color. But when the pandemic hit New York, Austin made the difficult (and incredibly forward-thinking) decision to pivot the club into a digital platform. Members wouldn’t be able to see each other in person, but they could still connect for workshops or yoga

    Billy Porter Drops His Skin-Care Routine

Quite the opposite, actually. “I tend to have a less-is-more approach with skin care,” she says. “Fewer, better products are the way to go. I don’t have the time or patience to be fiddling with 10 different products at a time.” In the spotlight for 25 years—as a performer, a designer, and a global icon—Beckham has spent her fair share of time trying out beauty and skin-care products, learning what does and doesn’t work

    Erika Jayne Drops Her Skin-Care Routine

    Erika Jayne is extra in all the best ways. Case in point: During a conversation about skin care, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells me she’d “rather have my skin oiled up to the hilt and look like a French fry than a powdered doughnut.” I half expect her to be recording a new Real Housewives tagline.  There’s also her love of bust cream, which she speaks so convincingly of that I wonder why it’s never made it into my own routine. “I don’t know why American women don’t use it more,” she says matter-of-factly. “European women love
