Angela is known for her clear smooth complexion, so creating something that is for the community of Black women is something impactful. “We were talking and [Angela] said there’s probably a need for a catered product for skin of color. And I was thinking, ‘Yeah, that’s actually true,’” Dr. Sturm told Essence. “So I did a lot of research on it and I created a line for darker skin tones and skin of color.”

She continued, “I put everything into this line, all my knowledge, everything. And my expectations for my skin care products are up there.”

Angela also follows a strict diet that improves her skin from the inside out. “Monday, Tuesday, I may eat carbs, fruit; Tuesday, Wednesday, protein, veggies — veggies every day — no fats those four days, and then the last three days, I flood it with fat,” she explained. “Good fat, though: maybe coconut oil, salmon, almonds, almond butter, you know, olive oil, that sort of thing.”
