Black Friday Skin Care Tips


Yesss! Black Friday is here and this is the best time of year to stock up on much needed skin care products. Nearly every company across the US (and other countries) utilize Black Friday for huge discounts.

Between this Friday and next Monday, you’ll find stellar deals on skin care products. Here’s a list of must-have skin products to include in your regimen.

Before you go Black Friday shopping whether it’s online or in stores keep this list in mind to shop for the best skin care for women of color.

Exfoliator: The right skin exfoliator will leave your skin feeling soft, fresh and healthy. Use a skin exfoliant to remove dead skin and bacteria from your face. You want your melanin to stay shinning and glorious right?

You don’t have to make a spa appointment to get a facial when you purchase one of these. Your pores will thank you later.

Skin Cleanser:

A clean face keeps your skin free of acne and oil build up deep in your pores. Depending on your skin type, skin cleansers for black women can be used daily, twice daily, or before bedtime.

Keep in mind that products are different for each skin type. Oily, combination and dry are the main skin types which companies cater to. Black Friday is the perfect time to get the luxury facial cleanser you’ve been wanting to try.

You can find certain brands that cater to skin care for women of color. If you don’t know where to start, check out this article on Black Doctor.


Black Girl Sunscreen is your go-to for protecting your skin. Remember: even though it’s chilly outside the sun still shines through those clouds which means UV rays will damage your skin when outside.

You don’t have to worry about white residue either. This SPF 30 sunscreen has you covered for the season.


Skin care for ethnic women depends deeply on your choice of moisturizer. Some of us have dry skin and this time of year won’t make it any better. This Black Friday think of a moisturizer you’ve been wanting to try.

As always Coconut based products and coconut oils work perfectly on brown skin but there are specific brands out there such as Strum Skin Care, The Afro Hair and Skin Co, and Black Up that have moisturizers designed with us in mind.

Got my products now what?

Once you get an exfoliate, facial cleanser, sunscreen and moisturizer apply them in the following order for luminous skin:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Exfoliate
  3. Moisturize
  4. Apply Sunscreen

Clean your skin off, exfoliate with your favorite product, moisturize to lock in that radiant look and lastly apply your sunscreen for women of color to protect from unwanted skin damage.

Happy Black Friday!
