It's not everyday you see a Black-owned business in North Carolina, especially one that offers beauty services so I was pleasantly delighted to bump into one called Skinfluent in Raleigh - a Black owned skincare boutique that caters to the Black community in the city.

Skinfluent Services

Skinfluent offers a range of services; from eyebrows with Tina D'von, bikini waxing services, face and body services, skincare, eyelash services, body treatments and more. In a nutshell, it offers very full service options that can be expected from a beauty studio of its calibre.

The Skinfluent space - a beautiful ambience to match the high quality service on offer

Apart from the great services on offer at Skinfluent, the ambience is also one that draws many. With its greenery and interior decoration, it promotes a calm and relaxing atmosphere for customers to truly relax in. You can tell a lot of attention and detail have gone into the design and it shines through. Not every beauty studio has a great ambience but if that's important to you, you can rest assured that Skinfluent ticks that box. And oh, Instagram lovers are going to love this too - very instagrammable place, if that matters to you.

In a moment of lockdowns, it can be so easy to neglect personal care or push it down the priority list, when in reality, this is what's needed the most - self-care and self preservation. Beauty services like this, especially if open, are some of the ways we can all healthily indulge in this time and pay attention to our bodies in the best way possible. Skinfluent has a variety of services and prices to match. If you're in the Raleigh area and looking for a beauty spot, Skinfluent is located in South Hills Mall. Check out the website here. There are safety measures in place to keep everyone safe in these times, so book an appointment, wear a mask and you'll be all set.
