Top Customer Reviews
she provides an abundance of information that focuses on the overall health and beauty of the skin, hair and nails of women of color.
BROWN SKIN dispels many of the beauty myths and misconceptions that have long permeated The African American community. It explores the efficacy and dangers of many skin care products readily available on the market, but that come without much guidance. It further outlines the latest advances in skin care, ranging from acid peels to laser surgery, and provides information on a host of dermatological manifestations in a wide range of medical conditions.
In a nutshell, BROWN SKIN is a complete guide for women of color, on how to enhance and protect their outer beauty. Dr Taylor does a fascinating job of demystifying the scientific facts concerning this topic, and presenting them in layman's terms, readily understandable by her audience. This book is a must read for women of color concerned with their physical appearance.

A MUST FOR THE HOLIDAY LISTS!
Alfred Fornay, Author, Editor, Cosmetic Executive and Image Consultant.
I would've given this book five stars but it needs pictures and/illustrations. If enough colored girls buy this, they'll make a second edition and maybe they'll pretty it up with pictures and a better cross-reference and recommended product list in an appendix.
