Ryan Destiny Told Us All About Being the New Face of Black Opal – Interview
“I go to sleep every night with a bunch of dots on my face,” she shares. “I [like to do my treatments] at night — if I see a pimple, it’s going down.” Mario Badescu‘s fan-favorite Drying Lotion is another elixir she has in her anti-spot arsenal.
Though she’s been diligent about her skin, Destiny’s been giving her hair a break as the country meanders through various levels of lockdown. “It’s super convenient right now, too, because I don’t have to have it done [as much]. A lot of my hair was fried off just from heat-styling,” she explains, a situation many of us can relate to.
Her efforts in rehabbing her crown have been fruitful, though. “I’m getting my curls back — they’re getting all that good moisture.” She credits products from Melanin Haircare, the brand started by natural hair YouTuber Whitney White, aka Naptural85, for the marked improvement in the health of her textured strands.
So, yes, Destiny may be sitting pretty with a cosmetics contract and 2.6 million Instagram followers, but she is trying to work through a pandemic, keep her beauty game up, and hone some of those same, ever-important everyday life skills we all have been looking to fine-tune during this strange time. (For Destiny, it’s cooking the perfect piece of salmon). In the meantime, we’ll be here, taking in her new campaign — and trying as best we can to copy the looks in our free time.
