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.

Enjoying the Benefits of Infused Water
Infused water, have you tried it? If you’re a gardener or you’d like to try your hand at it, you might want to start with herbs. Not everyone wants to grow herbs. If that’s the case, you can find reputable suppliers at your farmer’s market or online. Want a sweeter taste for your water? Try infusing it with fruits
What Are Some of the Benefits of Infused Water?
When you consider caring for your beautiful black skin, water is a key element.Without properly hydrated skin, you could experience dry, dull, ashy skin. Infused water offers you alternatives for taste. Whether it's watermelon and strawberries or cucumbers, ginger and rosemary, the flavors will give you a chance to pep up the flavor.
How To Quench Your Thirst With Infused Water ?
A lot of you don’t like the taste of water and by adding a little flavor, it makes it easier to ingest. The possibilities are endless when it comes to herb choices. They’re a great alternative to flavored water found in the grocery store. You know what you’re getting when you make it yourself.
More importantly, infused water, encourages you to drink more water while taking your health into your own hands.
Citrus - While citrus is a fruit, it’s a great way to introduce yourself to infused water. It’s as simple as adding lemon to water and drinking. Of course there’s orange, grapefruit and lime to consider when adding citrus to your water.
Cucumber - Have you ever had fresh cucumber added to your water. It’s a real thirst quencher and it’s great for your skin. Cucumber’s help move sludge through your system, thereby enhancing the beauty of your skin from within.
Lemon Balm - While it’s not the greatest tasting infused water when use by itself, it helps ground herbs like holy basil, mint and other lemon flavored herbs.
Mint leaves taste so good when added to water. Add it bit of lime and you’re got a mojito in your glass. Okay, minus the rum and sugar. You can add seltzer water and a natural sweetener and create your own soda.
Rosemary is for the more sophisticated palate. In the world of aromatherapy, it’s been said that rosemary perks up your brain. I use it in a diffuser along with basil and orange essential oils when I’m studying. I can sit for hours and not feel tired.
Herbal Infused Water Recipe
I love to mix:
1/4 cup fresh ginger,
2 sprigs of rosemary,
handful of mint,
1 lemon thinly sliced and
1 cucumber thinly sliced
Add all ingredients to a glass container and place it in the refrigerator for at least an hour. It’s a very thirst quenching drink anytime of the year.
This is to get you started with the idea of introducing herbal infused water into your daily liquid intake. As you palate matures and your creativity kicks in, you’ll be more bold in your choice of herb, flowers and fruits.
That’s it for this week. As always …
