Meet Agent Woman Ezinne Iroanya. Ezinne founded luxury skincare house SKNMUSE with a vision to elevate the beauty experience for Black women, which has been featured on Beyonce. She saw the need for skincare that catered to the body and not just the face. Her line of decadent and all natural body butters, balms and oils are packed with nutrients that protect, heal and maintain the skin. Because Ezinne believes in grassroot economic growth, 90% of SKNMUSE’S resources are sourced from small businesses.
Name: Ezinne Iroanya
Instagram: @avenue_z (personal) and @SKNMUSE (business)
Daily Uniform: A soft cotton set
AM ritual: I usually start my day with a ginger shot and herbal tea, then a prayer and a workout. Those are the tools that keep me grounded mentally. It is like food for my soul, and once my soul is fed, the day automatically goes better.
PM wind down: I love my evening rituals because it is all about self-care for me. My bathroom is set up to produce the ultimate experience. I’ll usually have a great playlist going, light a candle, take a long shower and then the pampering begins.
I really take my time to do a full body check while I massage my SKNMUSE body butter or oil into my skin, then I moisturize my hair in sections. After that, I do my facial routine. And for the finale I tend to my nails with the SKNMUSE cuticle oil.
