Last week, our favorite Hottie served natural beauty realness on “The Gram.” In the photo’s caption the Houston-born rapper asked her over 19 million followers to share the names of some black-owned skincare brand. Meg also shared, “haven’t been wearing foundation lately because my hyperpigmentation is getting better.” obviously, the products she has tried are working well because her skin looks as smooth and a baby bottom.
If you’ve never heard of or dealt with hyperpigmentation, it is dark spots caused by an excess melanin production and it can sometimes be a nightmare to deal with. While everyone can suffer from the condition, women of color are significantly more prone to it. People like our Houston Hottie who suffer from hyperpigmentation experience sun damage, inflammation, and acne scars, the clusters of flat, dark patches and uneven texture are wildly stubborn when it comes to fading on darker skin. Which is why finding the right skincare products and forming a routine is vital.
Check out a few of our favorite black-owned skincare brands that will cleanse, hydrate, tone, moisturize, and be proactive in reducing the affects of hyperpigmentation.

6. Doctor Coily
What began as a desire to create a hair oil that would make her hair stronger and healthier, grew into a passion. This passion helped Dr. San create Doctor Cioly, a brand that helps women that struggle with weakness, dryness, and breakage. I wanted to formulate an oil that would help in the prevention of breakage due to constant manipulation and heat, but that would also make my hair stronger while maintaining the thickness.
