Pamper Yourself in love this Month | Top 5 Black Owned Self-Care Businesses
February is here! Love in the air, and you might be planning plenty of surprises for your significant other. We want to remind you to reserve some of that love just for YOU. Loving yourself is just as important as loving others, and we’re bringing you an all-around at home spa experience with these five Black owned beauty companies.
Our favorite youtuber Jackie Aina has a gorgeous lifestyle brand that’ll fit any Badass Black girl’s mood. Forver Mood is for the Strong Black woman who likes to be pampered and knows that self-care is her fuel. Filled with candles, silk pillowcases, and luxurious headwraps, for the luxurious Black girl.
For the magical Black girl (we’re all magical) who lets the moon and stars shine on her path, Moon Love Bath was started in 2018 by Deborah Salko and has since exploded onto the self-care scene. Filled with magical bath bombs, bath crumbles, delicious whipped soap and enchanting body butters, Moon Love Bath is all about your mental and emotional health journey through aromatherapy for the mind, body, and soul.
Our favorite badass Black girl has gone beyond the recording studio and taken the beauty industry by storm with her makeup and skincare line. She’s changed the game with her highly inclusive 40 shade foundation range (we love to see it) along with her vegan/cruelty free skincare line. Fenty Beauty offers you an array of looks for date night, while Fenty skin is ideal for unwinding on a lazy Sunday.
Self-care starts from within, but it doesn’t hurt to target your physical care. Now more than ever, protecting your skin from the sun is a must. No longer are we reluctantly putting on sunscreen and facing the white cast of shame. Black girl sunscreen has solved that problem with a paraben free sunscreen catered to our gorgeous tones.
No self-care routine is complete without hair care! Melanin Haircare was created by popular natural hair youtuber Whitney White. This hair care line is chock full of natural ingredients to pamper and nourish each curl, curl, and kink to maximum hydration. Free of silicones, parabens, and mineral oil, you can feel safe and sure when using these products to finish up your self care routine.
In the midst of spreading love to others, don’t forget to shower yourself in love too with these amazing Black owned companies.
