Alicia Yoon, the CEO of Korean beauty site Peach and Lily, predicts that overnight sleeping masks, cushion makeup, essences, and water- and gel-based creams will be the next big Korean skin care trends to cross over to the States. (Sheet masks are on her list, too, but we'd argue that those have already blown up to BB and CC levels of popularity.) There's also talk of donkey milk, which apparently does wonders for sensitive skin. [The Cut]

"I was wearing my hair in its natural curl pattern since the beginning, and I’m happy bringing that to television," says Ross, now starring on ABC's Black-ish but forever beloved as Joan from Girlfriends. The daughter of Diana Ross goes on to talk about being a natural hair role model for young girls and how social media (she is such a great Instagram follow, btw) has helped create a dialogue about natural hair. [The New York Times Magazine]
