Building the Perfect Melanin-Rich Skincare Routine ft. Natacha Paugam and Dr. Elyse Love of Ustawi

Tune in for this special episode produced in partnership with soon-to-launch skincare brand Ustawi, founded by model Natacha Paugam and Dr. Elyse Love! After growing up in Cameroon and Birmingham, Alabama, both Natacha and Dr. Love came to understand and appreciate the unique conditions that skin of color can experience, and they were determined to formulate skincare that could specifically address its needs. On this episode, we break down all of the ingredients and products that are vital to maintaining and repairing melanin-rich skin. From niacinamide to baobab fruit to sunscreen (of course), you won’t want to miss this insightful episode!
