How Your Skin Protects You - Your facial skin can be your best friend. It is your confidante. It is your protector. It takes all types of abuse, and yet it is quick and ready to forgive.
Your skin is a multi-faceted creation that can't be duplicated by human beings. It keeps out the harsh external environment - that is germs and bacteria - while it protects your vital organs. It helps maintain your body temperature by preventing heat from escaping too rapidly, which would lead to harm, or even death.
Forget the Colors Seasons - You may be surprised that I have not presented colors in terms of the seasons of the year. This is because I believe a black woman doesn't need a certain season to wear a given color. She can make herself feel like any season she wants. There is no reason why you can't wear summer colors in the winter and spring colors in the fall. In fact, you will find any color in nature during any season, someplace in the world.
Likewise, don't be caught by the animal stereotype that colors should be more subdued in the winter and brighter in the summer. This camouflage may help animals protect themselves by blending into their surroundings. But you are a proud, lovely black woman who wishes to make a harmonious statement, so make the statement. My color chart helps you make yourself up without either blending into the background or clashing with it. It allows you to be yourself.
