INTERVIEW: Dr. Susan Taylor, dermatologist and author of Brown Skin

Every woman wants to look naturally radiant on her wedding day, right? But with a hectic work schedule, debates with the planner over flowers and cake and trying to ensure your gown fits perfectly, that trip to the dermatologist keeps dropping further and further down your to-do list.

Well fret not. I chatted with skincare expert Dr. Susan Taylor and got the 411 on how to ensure your skin is flawless for the big day. Taylor is the author of the highly regarded tome, Brown Skin: Dr. Susan Taylor’s Prescription for Flawless Skin, Hair and Nails (Amistad) and also the genius behind the product line Rx for Brown Skin which has been praised by publications like Allure and Essence so she certainly knows her stuff. (I personally have fallen in love with the Ultra-Gentle Cleanser from the Bright and Healthy line; it makes my combination skin feel silky smooth!)
