Skin Care Products for Women of Color

September 22, 2014

Some people are under the impression that women of color need special skin care products, but that's not the case. Skin is skin - black, white or otherwise. Black is just a tone - not a type. While there are some physiological differences, they have no impact on the type of skin care you use.

Just like everyone needs a healthy, balanced diet, skin of any color needs healthy skin care. The skin is the largest organ, covering the entire body and it is prone to dryness, acne, ageing, sun damage, uneven tone, oiliness, rosacea, sensitivity and more. Skincare for black women helps to treat those issues.

Important Skin Care Facts

Every efficient skin care routine includes gentle cleansing, effective sun protection and quality skin care products. At the same time, it is important to avoid ingredients that may cause more harm than good. Watch our for products containing synthetic fragrances, lemon, lime, eucalyptus, peppermint, menthol and alcohol. These are irritants and they will worsen your skin's condition.

When choosing products look out for water-soluble cleansers that will help prevent your skin from becoming dry and ashy. The products you choose must match your skin type:

Dry skin - choose lotions or creams.
Combination or oily skin - choose serums or gels.

Quality products are chock-full of antioxidants, skin-healing ingredients and cell-activating potions. Watch this video to determine your skin type:


Although everyone has the same skin care needs, darker skin tones are more prone to certain issues, such as raised or keloidal scarring, ingrown hairs and hyperpigmentation.

Black skin has more melanin, which gives us an advantage when it comes to coping with sun exposure. However, that doesn't mean you're immune to skin damage from the sun.

In conclusion, I'd like to remind you that, when choosing skin care, you should focus on skin type, not skin tone.
