Stressed out skin can happen to anyone at anytime. I should know. I have eczema. I got it in my late 20’s and when it first struck, I was baffled by it. I wondered, is it normal for skin conditions to creep up on you out of nowhere? This question lingered in my head for years as I became incre
Dial wanted me to interview one of my friends about myself so I went to Lisa Bensley of Beauty by Benz, one of my favorite beauty bloggers and friends. Lisa and I bonded big time over brunch at Harry’s Steak & Cafe in Financial District three years ago when I had a major outfit meltdown over t

Ever since I turned 30 a few months ago, I have been obsessing about my skin. I want to do everything I can to keep my face looking young and fresh. I have a normal skin type and almost never experience breakouts or acne, knock on wood. But although there is nothing really wrong with the sta
“According to an Essence online poll only 14.5 percent of you have sunscreen on daily rotation.” You all can hang up the myth of African Americans not needing sunscreen because the truth is, WE DO! Not one person of African American race is exempt from sunburn or other risk factors that are asso
Last week for Pro Tips, I asked you how you deal with the dry, flaky red skin that breakouts can leave you with. Here are some of your answers-
