Brown skin has a naturally warm, glowing complexion that ranges in shade from yellow to olive to dark brown and black (Asian, Latin, African-American, and Native American skin).

This was one of the first books I purchased when I finally started taking my health and appearance seriously years ago, and I still go back to it as a refresher or to look up something new.

This is a solid straightforward beauty book for women of color. This book would be helpful for all women of color but the focus is more or less on African American women and their specific beauty needs. A great book to keep in mind if you have a patron of color looking for a helpful and easy to read beauty book.

This book has some good information but the 5 minute and 2 minute showers was a bit weird. I did learn some things and will definitely be using this book as a reference.
