Hi Vicki,

Have you heard of Arbonne? All products are botanically based, free of any mineral oil, dyes and fragrances and free of any animal byproducts. All products are vegan certified. I am African American and I am using the Arbonne products and it works great on my skin. Please visit my website www.karenfoulds.myarbonne.com

I am not a woman of Color but my best friend (who is Afro-American) swears by the "Planet Spa" series:African Shea Butter by Avon. Unfortunately it is only available at Avon but she did say that it was like over night for her. T.

I'm not African-American (that I know of), but my hair is. I've spent most of my life battling with it and then I heard about Carol's Daughter products, a line that is marketed to African American women. Just Google that name. It's simply The Best--better, by a factor of 10, than anything I have ever found in a store or hair salon. My youngest, who inherited my hair, looks fantastic and my hair looks markedly better. Haven't tried their skin products but if they're half as good as the hair stuff, you should be more than happy.

Hello V.. I'm a 60 year old black woman who for most of my life never used much makeup, except for lipstick and eyeliner. The few times, I do use makeup; I use Mary Kay which I find to be beautiful on my skin. All other times, I use vaseline, which I find moisturizes my skin and gives me that dewey look and feel of my youth. Many are surprised at my age, and have commented that I look to be in my forties. As much as I love makeup on others, somehow it doesn't always work for me.

I don't know where you live, but there is a new store in Hilton Village in Newport News that is called Pretty Natural that is owned by an African-American woman. She has some neat skin and hair care products for everyone, and it seems like a lot are specifically for African American women. It's a nice store.

Hey Vicki. Oil of Olay is really good a little expensive but the face wash does last a while. Walmart has a good generic version of Oil of Olay that works well. I also use Avenno face wash. I have very dry skin so I use coco butter as mosturizer after washing my face. The only other moisturizer I found that would not leave my face feeling dry after a few hours was a Mary Kay product but it was way to expensive and didn't last very long.

Whether you have light of very dark skin, the same rules apply to everyone. Look for those products that contain natural ingredients. Products to stay away from are those that contain any kind of parabens and chemical alcohols. They are cheap and a not good for the skin over the long term. Cleansing products that contain any kind of sulfates are huge No-No's not only for your face but hair as well...very CHEAP and destructive additives. Stay far away from those!

Do your research with ALL products and try to get samples, if possible.

One website to use for ingredient inspection is Ulta.com or oilofolay.com These both list the ingredients in their products.

Always use 2 kinds of moisturizers after gently cleansing your face then a toner to bring it back to a natural pH state, then a water based lotion with spf and then a cream based moisturizer with spf as well. Water based is light and easily abosrbed by the skin but will evaporate quickly leaving your skin feeling dry. When you apply the cream moisturizer, it keeps the lotion to do it's job and it makes your face soft and glowing. Using just the heavier cream doesn't moisturize the face properly and will feel dry as well.

Whatever products you decide, read the ingredients carefully and your face will thank you for years to come!

I also say Mary Kay! It is the absolute best, no matter what your skin color. I used to use a lot of different things, but i have been using Mary Kay for about 6 months now, and it is fantastic. It leaves my skin smooth and even. I love the Micro Derm abrasion, it really makes a diffference. Give it a try, they have a money back guarantee, too. They have no perfumes or dyes, just good stuff. Really gentle, but just strong enough to do what you want it to.

V., Hey there! Which hospital do you work at? I also work at a hospital. One of my many hats that I wear is as a labor and delivery nurse at a very busy hospital in Fairfax. I've been married to a wonderful man for 15 years and have 3 kids (almost 11 y.o. twin boys and a 6 y.o. daughter)and they are the loves of my live. So you were asking for recommendations for skin care. Have you ever heard of Arbonne? They have the most incredible botanically based health and wellness products. If you're interested in trying a sample please let me know and I'll send you some stuff to try. I know you will just love them. Arbonne also offers a tremendous business opportunity for those that are interested. I started my Arbonne business because I fell in love with the products and am tired of working weekends and not having time to spend with my family. After realizing that I would have the same life in a few years unless I made a change I decided to give it a try and started fitting Arbonne into the nooks and crannies of my life and am so blessed that I did. It's been an amazing ride and I love my life and helping others. Please feel free to contact me via email or check out my website www.mbcroooks.myarbonne.com
I hope that I've helped and have a wonderful week.
Take care,
M.

As an independent Mary Kay consultant, I may be a little biased, but Mary Kay skin care is the best selling in the US for the past 13 years. The products are 100% satisfaction guaranteed, you get to try before you buy in the comfort and privacy of your own home and you will learn about your skin and the products while you are experiencing how great your skin can feel! You'll probably get similar testimony from representatives from other companies, as well, but I'm very comfortable saying that Mary Kay products are some of the best - top of the line quality-wise, and affordably priced. Search on the Mary Kay website www.marykay.com for a consultant in your area. You won't be sorry!

Hi V.! You may have heard this before, but the way to great skin is hydration, exfoliation, and use high quality products. High quality doesn't have to mean high price. I would be happy to send you a few samples of things I use on a daily basis. I am a BeautiControl Consultant and absolutely love their skin care products. I primarily use the skin care products, but have a few other smell-good things. They also offer makeup, but I would recommend Bare Escentuals for makeup, I've been using it for over a year and will never go back to any other kind! It doesn't break you out, and it's a super-fine powder that covers like a liquid!
