Angela Bassett's Secrets to Agelessness
According to the famous American phrase, "Black don't crack.” Angela wears this expression like a silk glove. Whether melanin is mainly responsible or not, the Jumping the Broom actress has more than one beauty secret up her sleeve.
First, Angela takes skincare very seriously. Her late mother, Betty Jane Bassett, while still very young, would take her regularly to see a dermatologist for any annoyance. And now the actress says it has become a part of her daily life.
If her face remains radiant and toned, she devotes her routine solely to these three objectives: cleanliness, hydration, and the fight against hyperpigmentation.
She says she does not wear much makeup except when she has to. The actress likes to keep her skin clean and breathing.
Although she has a busy schedule, she seeks to take a moment for herself. Taking time for yourself is not a luxury but a necessity. Hair falling out and skin forming patches and pimples on its own is a sign: the more overwhelmed, stressed, and tired you feel, the more important it is to stop. A face is only holy in a holy body. The body cannot be holy if it is not allowed to relax.
