What's your greatest skin care challenge?
As women and a growing number of men of color, what's your greatest skin care challenge? Whether it's dark spots, uneven skin tone, dark circles,puffiness under your eyes or hair that won't grow, you'll find a product that can possibly become the solution to your challenge.
Moisturizers and ingredients that hydrate your skin will always be your best friend, for your face, body and hair. So look for products with nourishing and nurturing ingredients. Shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter and jojoba oils are a few of the ingredients to keep on your list.
We've got new additions to our store for you. Essential oils have been known to help calm and soothe skin and scalp irritations. Although you'll find a sample kit on the hair category page, you can use them for any of your skin and hair care needs.
The hair care sample kit has been given an upgrade. We've increased the size of the container on the shampoo and conditioners and added a hair butter sample to the mix.
Although there's beauty in your blackness, your skin is sensitive and needs protection from the sun just like everyone else. So if you know you're challenged by sunburn, add a few drops of Lavender essential oil to Jojoba and Grapeseed Oil and create a nice body oil for yourself. It will bring comfort and beauty back to your skin.
We're listening to you and your suggestions, so keep an eye on the category pages and your emails for updates.
Until next time ...

Are you caring for yourself internally? What happens to you internally on a daily basis? On a good day your internal organs are enduring a lot of stress. However, as you move through your days and face the world in trauma, the stress intensifies. Your body is under attack. The news is blasted on television, via the internet, your newspaper headlines and from friends and family calling to see if you’ve heard the latest reports.
Is it the stress of the Global Pandemic or is it the stress of not knowing whether or not you’ll have a job to return to. Either way, the mental stress puts your internal organs in duress. Often times, we’re not aware of the stress our hearts are under or the level our blood pressure is rising to.
Your internal conditions, cause your skin to look dull and ashy, often times changing the color of your complexion. Your hair during stressful times begins to break and a lot of you experience hair loss. So…
How Do You Care for Yourself Internally as You Face Uncertainty?
You begin by removing all negativity from your environment. That means tuning out people you love, because somehow their presence makes you restless or anxious. Often times ill.
Your internal well-being is as important and caring for your soul. While this might seem off the beaten path for some of you, others will understand that it important to find peace within your space. It could very well save your life.
I’ve been on the phone with a lot of you basically just listening as you release. I’m not a relative that will pass judgement on anything you say, so you feel comfortable. Our conversations have been enlightening for us both. We’ve moved beyond natural skin and hair care tips.
I’ve learned a lot spiritually and gone down certain rabbit holes, that have been reserved for my “weird” friends.
You know the ones, those women that seem to exist in la la land. In essence, it’s not, we’re basically discussing the cosmos or a connection we’ve had with the Creator or Mother Nature.
Believe it or not, these conversations are the beginning of caring for yourself internally. In order to have internal health, you must be in a calm state at all times. It’s as if you’re walking in a constant place of meditation.
Other Ways To Care for Your Internal Self During Traumatic Times
