Speaking to Page Six, the Senegalese-American actress said she has mostly avoided makeup during this period while also taking very good care of her skin.
“I’m trying to stay makeup-free as much as I can,” she said. “I just take care of my skin. This is the first time that I’m consistently using sunscreen when I go outside. I am cleaning, exfoliating and masking a lot, so I’m just trying to keep my skin stress-free.”
“The Lovebirds” actress also revealed she has noticed a difference and improvement in her natural hair while taking it easy at home, likening it to a “beauty” restart.
“My hair feels more healthy,” she revealed. “I just feel like I can experiment with different products I have always wanted to use. I can look ugly in my house, ’cause no one see me — it’s great! But I do need a mani and pedi.”
