Your inner beauty is your power. Don’t let this harsh world’s opinion of beauty make you feel less about yourself because you are beautiful. Wake up, workout, participate in self-love, and self-mental elevation. Let the world see your beauty unabashedly!

Our illustrious Beauty issue personifies that natural is the forever beauty trend that will never go out of style.

To pay homage to our Beauty issue is none other than the outstanding actress, Kyla Pratt.

In our cover story exclusive, Kyla Pratt reveals her perception of beauty, and shares her journey as a young Black woman with well over three decades in the world of entertainment.

“I can’t sit here and say I have perfected feeling amazing and beautiful because we are all human beings, and we all have our days. I realize that when I do things that I know are good for me, I feel better about myself, physically. Whether that’s working out or some type of cleanse to where I’m only putting natural things in my body that makes me feel better.  It’s going to affect me mentally.”Kyla Pratt

Our double cover features comedian, influencer, and serial entrepreneur, Pretty Vee. The hilariously candid, superstar shares how her authenticity and confidence in her own skin led her to her rise in fame.
