    Beauty School no. 19: How To Prep Yo Skin

    Beauty School no. 19: How To Prep Yo Skin

    Hey friends,

    We’re going to basics today and going over the first step of your skincare routine, prepare. We’ve spoken previously about the three major categories of a skincare routine: Prep (cleanse, tone, exfoliate), Correct (whatever you want to actually correct your skin, your masks, serums, vitamins A + C, other exfoliants), and Protect (moisturizer and SPF).

    Today we’re going over step 1, Prep because some hoe lied to you and told y’all that your cleanser doesn’t matter, or that they’re all the same. Lies, my dudes! And I’m sure you’re wondering what the F a toner is or what it does.

    Beauty School no.18: How To Find Spirituality In The Digital Age with Psychic, Medium, Tarot Reader, Astrology & Occult Enthusiast, Vanessa Bartlett

    Beauty School no.18: How To Find Spirituality In The Digital Age with Psychic, Medium, Tarot Reader, Astrology & Occult Enthusiast, Vanessa Bartlett

    Hey friends

    We’re really excited to share this week’s episode with you! We are discussing a topic that might not be for everyone, however, if it is for you, you are going to be pumped for the next 1.5 hours. 

    Today we are speaking with our friend Vanessa Bartlett, who is a psychic, medium, tarot reader, & an astrology and occult enthusiast. Yall, Vanessa is the real deal. 

    She takes us on her journey of discovering her gifts at a young age, how she had to heal herself to accept and use her gifts to help others, and how she then learned to navigate a completely unknown field of study with absolutely no one able to guide her but herself. 

    Just a heads up, Vanessa is frank with her moments of developing her gifts and speaks about a time that a demon entered her space. Not sure if that should be a trigger warning or a taste of what’s to come, but you guys, we think this episode is amazing! 

    It’s so amazing that before we knew it, we had spoken for 2 hours and had to edit out some incredible tidbits to save for a bonus episode in the future--so be sure to watch out for that bonus episode!

    I’m not going to lie, as two Millenials trying to find our space within spirituality, this was a really, really dope and interesting conversation. 

    To learn more about Vanessa, check out her Instagram @theaquarean, and be sure to check out her weekly readings on her YouTube Channel The Aquarean.
