If you were in Vegas recently, you might have run into seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer, entrepreneur, television executive and Hollywood actress Toni Braxton. No, she wasn’t in town for the casino noise and 24-hour party scene, but rather for Cosmoprof — the beauty business’ hob-nobbing, platform building, trade show.

Toni Braxton

It seems Toni – in addition to her career of being a R&B legend who has sold over 70M records worldwide — has started a new journey and found fresh success in beauty with her new luxury bodycare line, Nude Sugar. Since we have always been a little distracted by her youthful skin, we took notes.

Entrepreneur & Beauty Founder, Toni Braxton on the Nude Sugar line

The Reason for Nude Sugar (The Back Story)

Years ago, I was diagnosed with lupus, and the doctors told me I would never be able to perform again. Lupus made things more challenging. It affected everything I did — from exercising, performing, to even what I could put on my skin. This made me start thinking — I wanted to create a skincare line for people with bodies and skin types like myself. Your skin is the largest organ in your body. You must be careful about what you put on it.

It’s a luxury body line and what I love most about it is that I created it from scratch. This isn’t something that someone came to me and said, “Oh would you put your name on it?” No, this is something I worked on for two years.

Basic Is Good. But Nude Sugar, Well It’s Better

I love the basic stuff that you can get from the drug store. But for me, having my skin type, it tends to be dry and sometimes it gets oily. I can never gauge it. I wanted to do something that would make my skin luscious and feel good. I wanted something thick and nourishing for my skin.

I’m going to be honest. I really wanted to work on my booty skin because the tone wasn’t as even as the rest of my body, so I came up with the Luminous Splendor and the Sugar Plum Elixir Body Serum. Those two together will have it looking right. I’m proud of mine.” —Toni Braxton
