Protect Skin from Signs of Aging & Enter for a Chance to Win a $50 Gift Card!

One thing about women of color is we tend to age gracefully. My grandmother is 86 years old and she didn't begin to show signs of wrinkling until she was in her 70s.

Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer Really Impressed Me

As you already know, my magnifying mirror is a cruel cruel mistress. And, like any beauty junkie, I can't seem to quit her. When I was younger I wanted a magnifying mirror so bad I could taste it. Mostly because it seemed like the sort of thing a real grown-up woman would have on her vanity. I wanted a vanity that resembled that of Norma Desmond in "Sunset Boulevard." I remember my mother being really against it. She opposed my purchasing such a mirror even more than she opposed my wearing a poodle skirt and jelly shoes everywhere I went.  Read more
