The singer/actress/serial entrepreneur launched B’ecarre by T Rivera, which includes a weekly exfoliating cleanser, daily face wash, eye cream and face cream that Rivera says will inspire confidence because “every bare face deserves to shine”.

For Women’s History Month, BOSSIP spoke with Rivera about its luxurious yet effective skincare line that cleanses and conditions, without stripping skin of essential moisture.

You’ve always had beautiful skin, when did you realize you wanted to create a skincare line?

I think I’ve always been very involved in skincare. I love skin care. I like the different skincare products. I had a dresser full of them and one day I thought, “I want to make my own skincare line, something for women like me so I can get rid of all these products I’m using. to make a product that works for me.” I finally ended up doing it.

Before launching your own skincare line, what was your skincare routine like?

One thing I always did, even before I knew about skincare, eye creams, and exfoliation, was moisturize. I couldn’t wash my face and just go out into the world, your face is getting so tight and dry. The moisturizer has always been my favorite. Then with my skincare, I started to realize that, okay, it’s not just about moisturizers, you also have to exfoliate and you have to use eye cream, you have to use SPF 30 because as I got older I began to realize the elasticity of your skin changes. That’s when I got started and created a skincare routine for myself. And I used that same routine to create my own line of products that was true to my regimen.

Let’s talk about the four steps in this line because I noticed that it’s very simplified. What are the steps and what are the products?

We have the weekly exfoliating cleanser that you use once or twice a week and it’s just for removing dead skin and having energized skin with vitamin C, lemon and exfoliating jojoba pearls. It removes that dead skin and all the toxins from every day. You know, being outside and people don’t understand how much (it affects your skin). Even right now during pollen season, this stuff is getting into your pores. It rests on your face and you have to remove this stuff. So the weekly exfoliator is just for that, flushing those toxins from your face and exfoliating your skin.

Then you have the daily facial cleansing which is like a gentle facial cleansing that you can do every day, every night. It is soft. It is soft. It cleans and does not strip the face too much. So that’s your daily facial cleanser.

Next, my favorite is your daily face cream. You put that on your face, it gives you that hydration, that glow. One thing I love about my skin cream is that it gives you a real glow. You just shine after.

You also have the eye cream that you put on. It helps with your puffiness, dark circles, fine lines. And I only really started getting into eye creams maybe two, three years ago. I was like, “I don’t have puffy eyes” but someone told me that “You’re getting older and you have to start prepping because that’s the thinnest skin on your face.” And I started noticing the difference when you used eye cream.

With all of my products, I use SPF 30 to protect you from the sun and prevent sun damage and that’s something I was going really hard for. I did trial and error on myself and my daughter, on my mother and on my sisters, I really put in the work. I wasn’t going to put that on anyone’s face unless I put it on mine. And I live it and I swear it and I really use this product every day.

What do you say to some women who might be reluctant to go naked despite your brand’s mission that “every bare face deserves to shine?” Should they feel confident trying this skincare line?

That’s the thing! That’s why when I made my skin cream, I was like, “I need something that gives you that glow,” that natural glow without having to use tinted moisturizer. or when you just want to go grocery shopping and want to get that glow. You can achieve this without having to put on your face makeup.

I don’t wear makeup, I only wear makeup if I go out. I don’t regularly wear makeup on social media. I have to go somewhere or on a red carpet all day. Other than that, you catch me at the grocery store and I’m bareheaded with my skincare cream. And I trust it because of the way it makes my skin feel and look. I don’t mind wearing my face.

You’ve done skincare and fashion, entrepreneurship, what’s next?

Right now I’m working on writing a book, my autobiography. My daughter and I are also in talks about doing a podcast together, a mother-daughter podcast. I want to do more films and films and I’m definitely turning to music. So anything and everything that God wanted me to do, I try my best just to go for it.

Speaking of which, I heard you have an upcoming BET acting role. Is it true?

Yes, it’s a show called I have a story to tell. It’s an anthro series where each episode is different. Each episode is like a mini-movie and I’m in the first episode with Apryl Jones. It’s on BET+ or Prime, check it out.

There was a Tweet that surfaced recently that read, “Tammy Rivera really did something with all those kisses.” When are you going to release new music for fans?

Everyone asks me and I keep playing. I will (I will). I have so much music that I haven’t released yet and I just started to let go and let God and just release it. I really stumbled upon it. I don’t know why and I have so much new music with Sean Garret, with Sean Penn. Music that I just haven’t released. I have so much music that just hasn’t been released.

We’re looking forward to that and looking forward to this skincare line. Where can people buy it?

You can go to Thecarebytrivera. You can also walk into my store in Atlanta. It’s 115 Piedmont Road. We also sell them in-store and online.
