She Wants To Inspire Good Values In Her Daughter
Smith has a young daughter, and she says that she wants to inspire self-confidence in her as she grows up. "I want to instill in her that while many people will think what they're interacting with is your aesthetic beauty, the majority of what they're actually interacting with comes from inside," Smith says to Allure. "That's the most important thing, and that is something that doesn't show up in your face. [It's] more than what she looks like, it's about how she feels, which to me is really what beauty is about; it's more about how it feels, how I feel with what I wear and put on. How I feel is what character I'm embodying in this moment with my beauty, with the makeup that I'm going with, or how I feel inside is what motivates me to take care of my skin. It's a form of self-care, which, as a Black girl, she's going to need a lot of."
She Loves Tea
When it comes to self-care and relaxation, Smith says to Allure that she loves to make tea, and that her family members encourage her to do so. "My Aunt Judy just mailed me all this lemongrass and soursop leaves so I could make tea with the soursop leaves. It's happening over here. At the end of the day, I believe that soursop is going to help my mental health, so I keep on with that."
She Stays Hydrated
Smith tells Elle that one of her biggest beauty and wellness secrets is drinking a lot of water. "I think the most important piece of beauty advice is drink lots of water. It's the key. Hydration is the key because if you have nothing else but hydration you're already off to an excellent job."
She Opts For Baby Skin Care Products
Smith has gorgeous skin, and she makes sure to take care of it. However, she revealed to Allure that her favorite skin care products are made for babies, not adults, and she's got a good reason for this. "Right now, all of my skin-care products have 'baby' on them. I try not to use anything that's going to irritate my daughter's skin. It's more about finding the purest elements of it now and really riding with those. Everything that I wear now and everything that I do [needs] to be something that complements what I'm doing with my daughter."
She Buys Organic Food
When it comes to her diet, Smith tells Allure that she buys all organic food. She says that her mother's cooking has led her to make this choice."My mom is Jamaican. In Jamaica, I think, and especially when our parents would have been growing up there, the food that they were eating and the purity of that… My mother [grew up] very poor, but [as I] try to explain to my mom, 'I buy organic food because I have to buy organic food here — it's not like the food that you eat. I have to buy organic food here so I can eat the food that you were eating when you were growing up.'"
