Black skin : the definitive skincare guide

Ayodele, Dija2021
For decades, the skincare needs of Black women have been ignored. Until now. Dija Ayodele is an expert in Black skin. A pioneer in the beauty industry and one of the UK's most-respected aestheticians, she places Black women front and centre of her practice. Dija takes you through the lifetime of your skin, sharing transformative essentials from how to work out your skin type to the dos and don'ts for your everyday routine. She explains the best ingredients for your skin and your budget, to the common concerns that Black women experience from hyperpigmentation and skin discolouration to dry skin conditions and keloids. She debunks common myths and misconceptions such as do darker skin tones need sunscreen? And is there any truth to the saying 'Black don't crack?' Black Skin also casts a look at concept of Blackness and identity in the beauty industry.
