Asia Jackson is Taking Her Place at the Beauty Table

“Being able to travel the world at such a young age opened my eyes to how subjective beauty truly is,” says Los Angeles-based Asia Jackson, who grew up on military bases around the world. “As I got older I had a much more nuanced understanding of beauty standards and their origins and how ‘beauty’ is intimately linked to politics, racism, class, culture and colonialism.” It’s this unique point of view that has inspired the actor and content creator’s next project: a soon-to-launch digital platform called SKNFLUENCR that aims to explore colorism, identity and culture at the intersections of beauty and fashion. Jackson can also be spotted in the film Nocturne and shows like Alone Together, Speechless and Modern Family. Additionally, she is outspoken about her own experiences with anxiety and depression and uses her personal platform to be vocal about mental health, all of which we touch on in the conversation below. 

“I think that learning the history of my people helped me tremendously in finding my confidence and empowerment.”

“My life philosophy is to live an intentional, beautiful and joyful life.”

“I stopped being mean to myself a long time ago. It didn’t serve me.”

Getting Ready with Asia Jackson

As an actress, content creator and founder of beauty platform SKNFLUENCR, Asia Jackson is pulled in many different directions. This makes her wellness and beauty practices — exercising, journaling, a simplistic skincare routine and listening to uplifting 70s soul music — essential to inspiring her to realize her dreams.
