The immersive evening event, taking place on Zoom, will bring together many of the world’s most renowned skincare doctors, makeup artists, cosmetic practitioners and wellbeing experts, as well an audience from all around the world to openly discuss the world of beauty and address concerns that are unique to black skin.
Mark this in your diaries: on Monday 6 July, Black Skin Directory – in partnership with GLAMOUR and Il Makiage – is bringing you Black Skin Decoded, an evening dedicated solely to the unique needs of black skin and wellbeing, as well as providing a platform to celebrate all things black beauty.
Founded by aesthetician Dija Ayodele, the award winning Black Skin Directory connects black women and women of colour with skincare experts, specialised treatments and vital beauty information that meets their needs and ensures access, availability and affordability for all – especially those who are too often underrepresented.

The first session will have world-leading dermatologists Dr Ifeoma Ejikeme, Dr Amiee Vyas and Dr Anjali Mahto welcoming you to a Skincare 101 to talk through everything from your daily skincare regime to common skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation and different types of scarring.
