You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Share with us your hair care and skincare routine.
If I invest in anything it is in my skincare. Nothing fancy but the facials I do are lol.
I make sure I have very thick moisturizers for night and thin for the morning that don’t clog my pores or have too much fragrance in it, since I do have very sensitive skin. I ALWAYS put on sunscreen, I make sure to exfoliate with acids and never those exfoliates with the beads in it, it’s so bad for your skin. I use rational only at night and I love African Shea butter. I also make sure the soaps I use in the shower aren’t too stripping and you can use as a shampoo, body wash, face wash, all in one for sensitive skin. I SCRUBBBBB my skin at least once a week, like I make sure I’m pink when I’m out the shower ahaha, dry brushing is also great for the skin and circulation.
Now onto the facials I get once a month (When I can afford it) I don’t get those fancy facials that are over the 1,000, I keep it cute and stay in the $100’s and a little over. I also don’t pay for Netflix, Spotify, Hulu or any other streaming platforms so I can afford this lol but that’s a whole other topic.
I get PRP micro needling. Probably my favorite facial right now (Not so great for people who are squeamish) They take out your blood and spin it in this machine that separate the red blood cells and the liquid gold aka the PRP. They will then take a machine that has very little needles (They don’t go in so deep, its very surface level) use it all over your face and spread the PRP on top. It basically causes the body to heal itself and produces more collagen and heals scars in the process.
You began to take on the music industry by writing songs for Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams, Clean Bandit, Alex Guadino, The Cool Kids, and others. Tell us more about your songwriting talent and who is your role model as a songwriter and your inspiration?
All these songs were once mine as an artist. I’ve never written a song for anyone else but myself. It just so happen that they like what I did and used it which I am so happy and blessed to have been able to be seen and heard by such amazing talent.
My inspiration is the world around me. Bronx culture, Caribbean culture but also internet culture is a very big influence for me. What grew up listening vs what I started to find myself on the internet that developed my personality. I got into a lot of rock, indie pop, screamo, heavy metal, hyper pop, Jpop, punk, uk pop. I grew up with my mom loving and listening to Beyonce, India Arie, Lauren Hill, and Motown. My parents are also musicians themselves, so I grew up watching them perform in a salsa band. I have a very big family as well all Puerto Rican, Dominican, black, even some Japanese nephews in the mix too so we will throw a lot of baby showers and you will hear a lot of hip hop, bachata, salsa, meregnue, reggae ton, dancehall, reggae.
As a model you have walked the runways for the world’s finest fashion designers, brands, and also magazines namely Fenty, MAC, Pat McGrath, Adidas, Vogue, and more. Tell us more about your experience working for them and how these professional achievements have acted as a motivator to further your professional career as a supermodel and also as a catalyst to achieve spectacular heights in modeling?
You calling me a supermodel makes me feel so amazing. Thank you!! Ahah I never thought I will hear those words in correlation to me. But it feels unreal, when I think of a model I think, very tall, very thin, very uniquely beautiful so to see big brands higher more girls like me is a beautiful look into the future. A more realistic and relatable approach. Hopefully can help little girls look at and think “If she can do it I DEF can do it too”. Not only little girls but all women.
I don’t come from money or famous parents. I am a girl from The Bronx, sound view who sang on YouTube and got discovered. The internet is an amazing place where more and more people like me are being discovered and getting to live out their dreams. I hope I can make this a long lasting career for myself. I never thought I would fall in love with modeling but I really genuinely enjoy it and it motivates me to stay healthy as well.
