If you’ve been around the Clumps of Mascara scene for awhile, you’ve been there with me throughout my skin issues. From when I was living in Los Angeles and having crazy skin breakouts like here to when I even went as far as purchasing acne treatment kits like here. Truth is my skin is extremely important to me. Take away every beauty product that I own and I may weep. But curse me with acne prone skin for the rest of my life and I’m tip toe-ing to the edge of the “W” of the Hollywood sign.

I don’t spend a lot of time playing in eye shadows as much because my focus now (besides my obsession with blushes) is a good skin regime. has reallllly been helping me out. This website caters to those of African, Latino, Asian and Indian ancestry. It’s really all that I can ask for when it comes to skincare. I mean, who knows our skin better than we do? At the site, you will get an abundance of tips. It’s been my Saturday read for weeks to come now.

Dr. Susan Taylor has actually created a skincare line for US. I spotted some of the products in NYC’s Sephora in Time Square when I went visiting a few months ago. My sister copped a moisturizer from the Bright & Even line and has been raving about it. Dr. Taylor even has a book that covers all things skin, hair and nails for women of color.

What’s your take on Are you okay with the products you are currently using? More importantly, if you are a woman of color…..what’s the biggest concern/issue you’ve dealt with regarding skincare? Or maybe you feel as if skincare products cater to everyone. I want to hear it alllll.

Stay beautiful!

    Oh, I love Dr. Susan’s website too! I used it in my hydroquinone article! 😉 I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one with skin issues. :)

    Hey I too sometimes from eeky little spots..arghh.I started using the Liz earle clean and polish and things seems to have improved quite a bit. I also take two teaspoons of flaxseed oil and 15mg zinc supplements. Also drinking warm water with half a lemon squezed in 1st thing in the morning can help detoxify you…and prevent nasty buildup of toxins which may lead to spots.

    Not really an expert but hope that helped.I love your blog & you are so gorgeous! :)

    my biggest issue would be my oily skin. I get breakouts but I know how to take care of that. If my skin wasn’t oily, I’d go without makeup…maybe not everyday…but I’d go without it =)

    thanks for the site!

    I have her book. I was so excited when it came out but it wasn’t as great as I thought it was going to be. You can check it out for yourself, but I didn’t thik it was all that.

    I had found most of the info in the book from articles online.
