Tayshia Adams on Lip Injections, Acne, and Her Self Care in 2020 - BEVERLY HILLS NEWS


Hot take: Tayshia Adams is going to be the next Bachelorette. And while that’s not totally confirmed yet (@ABC, pls don’t come for me), if you keep your ear to the reality TV streets, you know that Clare Crawley, the original star of this upcoming season, fell in love with contestant Dale Moss in 12 days and allegedly refused to continue filming. According to Reality Steve and other sources, the producers brought in Tayshia to take over for Clare, which *Chris Harrison voice* would make season 16 the most dramatic one yet.

But I didn’t talk about any of that with Tayshia when we hopped on a Zoom call last week (uh, NDAs are a real thing, people). Nope, we didn’t chat about Tayshia, the alleged Bachelorette—we spoke about Tayshia, the woman who struggles with hormonal acne breakouts, who doesn’t owe anyone—including fans—anything, and who recently got lip fillers. Yup, Tayshia is now a brand ambassador for pharmaceutical company Allergan and opened up to me about her decision to get Juvéderm Volbella.

And if you think the reason behind her choice to get fillers is rooted in some sort of, IDK, crippling insecurity, you couldn’t be more wrong. After recently turning 30, Tayshia says that she’s the most comfortable with herself she’s ever been. Check out our Q&A below to learn more about her lip fillers, how she took care of herself during the BLM protests this summer, and of course, her skincare routine.

On quarantine and her self-care habits

How’s quarantine been going for you?

You know, at first quarantine was a two-week thing—then it was one month, two months, and now it’s a whole year. It was weird at the beginning, but I’m more used to it now. To be honest with you, I’m now officially a homebody. I don’t want to go out.

Really? Oh my god, I’m the opposite. I miss bumping into strangers.

But that’s the energy of New York. I feel like out here [in L.A.], you have your space and your bubble. I love going to the beach and just sitting and watching the sunset by myself. And a year ago, I would never do that. Why would I go to the beach by myself, that’s so weird [laughs]. Now, it’s like, I’m turning my phone off, I don’t want to be disturbed at all.

You just turned 30—happy belated! Do you think the older you get, the more comfortable you are with yourself?

Absolutely. I feel like there are less things I’m concerned with doing. Like, the friends that are in my life are my friends and spending extra energy on trying to have this crowd and that crowd is so not me anymore. My friends are my friends and I talk to them, you know what I mean?

How do you tune out all the noise? You get so many random comments on Instagram, so many people are talking about your life, how do you deal with that?

To be honest, taking a lot of breaks off of social media. That’s definitely one thing that helped me during quarantine, because at that point, all you had was your phone to stay connected with everybody. Honestly, it was the BLM movement that really hit me in a different way that I needed to take a minute, so I kind of signed off a little bit. So how do I deal with it? It’s really just putting my phone down finally.

On the BLM protests this summer

With the protests, I feel like it’s nothing we haven’t seen before, but I do agree with you that it hit different this time.

Absolutely. I was getting hounded by people on Instagram with, “Why aren’t you saying something?” First of all, I don’t owe anybody anything, you know? We all have a different experiences with how it is, but I did ended up saying stuff. Honestly, this has affected me way more than I even realized it was going to. And I don’t even know how to vocalize how I’m feeling right now. So, it just hit differently. It wasn’t just a community that was hurting—it was here, there, there, there. And everything was right here [picks up her phone] and you were watching it happen. You can hear about it, but it’s very different watching it.

Yeah, one thing I really don’t like is when people share that kind of content. It’s really traumatizing to see that.

It’s not normal. It’s hard. It’s hard on a lot of people, and I think that I had to take a step back. I’ve learned the value of just putting my phone down and shutting off the noise.

Do you feel weird when people are telling you that need to say something? I feel like that’s kind of uncomfortable.

It is uncomfortable! And I understand—you have a platform, you have a voice, use it. I understand that. But also, I have the same feelings you have. If you’re going through something and you’re feeling hurt, I guarantee I’m feeling hurt too. You can’t push someone to say something. First of all, it doesn’t come off as authentic—they could be saying things just to say things. Wouldn’t you want someone to say something when they’re actually ready and when they actually feel something?

And also, just because you say something doesn’t mean there’s a lot of action and heart behind it. And you never know what people are doing behind closed doors. I protested way more than I showed on my Instagram. Why? Because it was important for me to do that. It wasn’t because I need to do it to show people. So it is hard to navigate that fine line.

On getting lip injections

Can you tell me a little bit about your decision to get lip fillers?

I grew up loving my lips, loving what I have been given, and I never really thought about being the type of person person who would get fillers. But, you know, you always have that in the back of your mind, with doing so much press, even if it’s on your phone, doing Instagram Stories, you’re constantly seeing yourself and you notice some things. Maybe nobody else notices, but you notice it yourself. My natural lips look like they could just use a subtle plump. Not to be bigger but to look a little more hydrated.

And that was something I brought up to my derm, just because I was seeing her for acne actually, and I always ask her about stuff like that. Like, “Do you think I need Botox?” and she’s like, “No, Tayshia.” [laughs] I feel so comfortable with her, and so we went with Juvéderm Volbella. It’s very natural and it enhances your natural lips as opposed to changing the shape or giving you more of this or that. It was the best fit for me.

I protested way more than I showed on my Instagram. Why? Because it was important for me to do that.

When it comes to lip injections, I feel like people usually associate it with white women. Do you feel there’s a stigma attached to a Black girl getting lip fillers?

Sometimes, yes. People are like you usually have more full lips, and I’m just like…okay. That’s great. But not everybody’s the same. My little sister has the best lips on this planet. She has the most gorgeous, full lips. We have very different lips. I mean, I love mine, but mine are just a little bit smaller than hers. Regardless, we came from the same parents. I don’t think there should be a stigma. It’s the same thing as Botox. Like, you know what I mean? It doesn’t matter what color you are, who you are, what it is, if that’s what you want to do, go for it.

Have you ever feel not completely secure with your lips? Since people expect Black girls to look a certain way?

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

No, actually, I’ve never felt that way. Since a very young age, my mom has always said that she loves my lips. I’ve always been really confident in my features. I love how big my eyes are, and I love my nose, I love what God’s given me, and that’s the way that my mom raised me to be. So, no, I’ve never really had that feeling of not fitting a certain stereotype.

I know you mentioned you wanted your lips to look more hydrated. You know how some people have really deep creases in their lips? Did the injections help with that?

It did help with that. Now, will I say it took it away completely? No. Did it help it a little bit? Yes. And that’s what I love about it. Like, if it did take it away completely, that would mean that I added a lot of volume to my lips. So, I think it was the right natural-looking amount.

What was your recovery process like?

Do you want me to be honest [laughs]? I got very scared because my lips did blow up. But only for the first two days. But they were pretty swollen. Did it hurt, or anything like that? Absolutely not. Icing really helped the swelling. I did notice a lump on my top lip for about a week or so. But after that, it disappeared. It was gone.

Were you afraid to tell people?

Yes, at first, I really was. And then I came out with my first post about it, and I told my girlfriends, and they were like, “You did what? I didn’t even notice,” and I was like, “Yea, that’s the whole point [laughs].”

On hormonal breakouts and her acne-friendly beauty routine

So back to your acne—is that something you’ve struggled with for a while?

It wasn’t until my sophomore year of college when I got really bad acne. I started taking Doxycycline to deal with it. It’s just normal acne, but I never had anything like that. It kind of went away. But I will say that recently, within the last few years, it’s flared up a little bit more. It’s something that I have gone to my doctor and asked her about Accutane before because I’m over it.

I wish it was gone. Especially at age 30, it sucks to be on your phone or go to an interview or do a photo shoot and have acne on your face. It’s normal, but it kind of hits the self-confidence a little bit, you know what I mean?

How do you deal with it now?

I research a lot of skincare—my skin is super sensitive, so I can’t really use makeup, lotions, anything that I haven’t researched. During quarantine, I discovered Paula’s Choice, which is great. I love their BHA Toner and their Azelaic Acid Cream.

And you found that it cleared things up?

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Absolutely. I also really like getting laser facials. But I’ve always been told to be careful when it comes to those because I have darker skin.

I literally got hyperpigmentation all over my face because of a bad laser treatment.

See! So that’s something I feared. I had never gotten anything until about a year ago, when I was just breaking out and nothing was taking care of it. I went to Skin Laundry, and they tested out a patch first, and it was fine. We did the lowest setting, and my skin reacted so well to it. I started going almost every two weeks, and it really cleared things up.

It didn’t obviously take it away entirely, because I have hormonal acne, but it did help keep it at bay, and I really do love the texture of my skin after doing that. But with quarantine, it shut down, so I really went through it [laughs].

What other skincare products are you into right now?

Skinceuticals is a huge brand that I’ve started using. I really love their serums and their acne kit—it comes with a wash, a toner, a serum, and I swear by it, to be honest with you.

Why should I go get it?

First of all, this cleanser is really gentle—my skin dries out so much. But this one is so soft on your skin, and it really cleans it. And the Blemish + Age Defense is a great spot treatment. If I have nothing on my skin, I’ll just put the serum on, and I’ll go box, and that’s all I’ll use on my skin. Okay, wait, I lied. I do put on sunscreen. Always wear sunscreen.

What sunscreen do you use?

I’ve started using Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen.

Oh my god, yes! That’s my go-to.

Yes! Because it’s clear and it doesn’t leave a residue.

Exactly! I put it on earlier today when I had no makeup on, and someone on a Zoom call was like, “Omg your face looks so glowy.”

It’s SO good. I haven’t seen a sunscreen like that or used a sunscreen with the same texture before.

When it comes to covering up your acne, what works for your skin?

Okay, so, foundation holy grail is Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk.

A classic.

Number one, it matches my skin tone. It doesn’t really rub off and it doesn’t cause my acne to flare—it’s amazing. NARS concealer is also a must. That and Laura Mercier Translucent Powder. I also love the Chanel bronzer and the mascara is my favorite. I have a lot of Chanel lip glosses—they’re kind of expensive, but they last forever, and they just make your lips look so juicy.
