We often get asked "Is Urban Skin Rx only for African American Women?"The short answer is "no!" First off, we are not just for women. Skin care is about treating the skin type, condition, and concern and not about whether you are female or male. We are melanin experts and pride ourselves in treating all skin tones with a focus on ethnic and darker skin tones. However melanin comes in all shades and races and being true skin care Experts means having the expertise to safely and effectively treat all skin tones. We even recently won Yahoo's Diversity in Beauty...

I’m not talking about going to the gym (I haven’t been in weeks, I’m hoping a spray tan will make me look 10 pounds lighter), I’m talking about your skin. It’s the much loved, or much dreaded time of year when we bare our backs, legs, arms and sometimes even the booty (if ya nasty). If you’re like me, you don’t come out of winter looking radiant and glowing pure light from every orifice of your body - I’m dry, insanely itchy...

Let’s face it; as an African American woman, I have always been very limited in my choices of skin care. Skin care for black woman has just never been a priority it seems.

Which makes sense because any time I have a breakout or get ingrown hairs I am...
