The Black community takes great pride in the adage, “Black don’t crack.” In a world obsessed with youth and beauty, the benefits of looking younger than you are has its perks.
According to actress Rachel True, there is another side to that phrase. In 2017, True, who is 50 but looks significantly younger, tweeted, “Black don’t crack but it does sag…don’t rely on genetics alone to keep you youthful.”
True was advocating for a plant-based diet. While you might not be ready to overhaul your diet, there is still a way to get radiant-looking skin. 21Ninety has curated a list of non-surgical anti-aging treatments that will go a long way in preserving your youthful glow.
