Ayesha Curry knows that to give, you must be filled.
While celebrating some of her favorite Black-owned brands, the mom of three and wife to Stephen Curry opened up to E! News on the power of self-care and why prioritizing it can boost your relationship with others.
“You can't pour from an empty cup,” she said. “So to be at your best for the people that rely on you, you have to take time to prioritize yourself.”
According to Ayesha, simple things can help improve your quality of life.
“Maybe it's a skin routine at the end of the day, or taking 15 minutes to journal first thing in the morning.”
No matter the preference, she said dedicating time to personal care is what matters most. "Whatever that looks like for you, it's important to take the time and be consistent."
Over the summer, she launched her vegan skincare line, Sweet July Skin, inspired by her Jamaican roots that took over three years to curate, as reported by PEOPLE.
This venture for The Full Plate author is personal because she has had her journey with sensitive skincare and always wanted to create a line that would treat her face gently and effectively. "The smallest thing will irritate my face and send it into a spiral, and I'll have a wildfire of acne, so I wanted everything to be as clean as possible,” she explained. "We worked with a really clean lab, and everyone helped us every step of the way in ensuring our products were created with integrity."
The debut collection includes a three-piece set, including Pava Exfoliating Cleanser, Pava Toner, and Irie Power Face Oil.
The line includes ingredients that range from papaya, guava, lycée seed, neem seed, and turmeric root. They are available online at Sweet July, Amazon, Thirteen Lune, and her storefront in Oakland, CA.
