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.
Join Dija in conversation for this virtual event as she celebrates the publication of her new book, Black Skin. Taking you through the lifetime of your skin, Dija will share transformative essentials from how to work out your skin type to the dos and don’ts for your everyday routine. She will explain everything from the best ingredients for your skin and your budget, to the concerns that Black women experience – tackling common issues such as hyperpigmentation, skin discolouration, dry skin conditions, and keloids.
Casting a look at the concept of Blackness and identity in the beauty industry, Dija will also debunk common myths and misconceptions such as: do darker skin tones need sunscreen? And is there any truth to the saying ‘Black don’t crack?’
Intelligent and informed, this ground-breaking event presents the definitive guide that every Black woman needs to truly understand and successfully care for her skin.
