In terms of what the future holds, Harvey has big goals for her skincare brand. When it comes to her personal life, the 25-year-old aspires to be a wife and mom five years from now.

“In five years, hopefully, I will have many more businesses that have successfully launched,” she told the publication.

“Hopefully, SKN by LH is a household name and people are loving it, and I’m a real force in the business space, the beauty space, the fashion space. Hopefully, I have a baby; hopefully, I’m married,” she added.

Dreaming Big

Harvey, an aspiring entrepreneur, opened up about launching her skincare brand SKN by LH.

“When the next generation is coming up and there’s that little brown girl who wants to get into skincare or start her own company, she can see me and be like, ‘I can do it, too,’” she said.

Teaching Her Man About Skincare

Harvey is in a relationship with PEOPLE’s 2020 Sexiest Man Alive, Michael B. Jordan. During the chat, the entrepreneur said she taught the 34-year-old actor about skincare.

“Mike doesn’t know a ton about skincare. Everything he’s learned, he learned when we got together,” Harvey shared. “He used to just wash his face with a warm rag and walk out the door, and it would make me cringe.”

When it comes to her business, Harvey revealed that Jordan contributed to its success by sharing his feedback. She said he gave “good notes” throughout the whole process, including some advice she incorporated on how the cleanser could use a “fresh scent” or “bit more of a bubbly foam to it.”

“Before I launched, my anxiety was through the roof,” Harvey shared. “I questioned every little thing, like, ‘Is my packaging OK? Should I have redone this, should I redo this? Is this the right time, should we push the launch date back?’”

Sharing A Powerful Love Tip

In the interview, Harvey also shared the secret to maintaining a healthy relationship with the “Black Panther” star. It was something she learned from her parents.

“Always communicate,” she said, adding, “Overcommunicate, even, so you are always on the same page.”

“Also, be friends first. You know how sometimes you fight with your siblings and, of course, you love them, but you’re like, ‘I don’t even like you right now’? It’s important to always be friends whether you like the person,” she continued.

Working In Fashion

Before launching her beauty line, Harvey worked full-time as a model. She starred in a 2018 Pat McGrath Lab beauty campaign and walked the runway for big fashion houses like Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry. Harvey adores the fashion industry, but sometimes, the work affects her mental health.

“When I was younger, I really paid attention to what people thought about me and how people thought my body looked,” she recalled. “When I started modeling, I felt like I had to get super skinny because I wasn’t tall. I’m naturally more curvy, so I put a lot of pressure on myself to be a certain size and look a certain way. It took such a toll on me mentally.”

Striving To Be As Successful As Her Superstar Dad

Harvey also talked about the pressure of succeeding in the shadow of her television star dad.

“There’s the feeling like, ‘I have to be successful because my dad is this successful giant,’ and of course wanting to impress your parents and make them proud,” she noted. “Then there’s the societal pressures of social media: everything has to be perfect. There are times I’ve gotten insecure or you start comparing yourself to other people. You see what they’re doing on social media, and you’re like, ‘Oh my god, I’m not doing enough.’”

Harvey chose to get into skincare because she’s been “obsessed” with it “since I was a little girl.” SKN by LH took her years to make before launching.

“I’ve honestly been obsessed with skincare since I was a little girl,” she said on E! News’ Daily Pop. “Watching my mom do her skincare tutorials in the mirror, I was like, okay, I want to emulate that. I want to get glowing skin.”

The model continued, “So as I got older, trying out different products trying to figure out what worked with my skin—I have extremely sensitive skin so a lot of the products I was using were honestly making my skin so much worse—and I decided, you know what, I think I want to give this a try. I think I can come out with a great skincare line. And SKN by LH was born.”
