 all of my skin care needs," says Allen, a Houston native.  "So the idea behind
 this line was to create one complete collection that could address all of the
 skin care needs of women of color."
     Dr. Merritt, whose Chicago practice has been devoted to solving these
 needs for more than 20 years, developed a five-step regime for dry,
 acne-prone/oily and normal/combination skin.

 "That's why we developed three different regimens to help any woman with any
 skin type."
     Each collection features five products -- a skin cleanser, eye make-up
 remover, gel toner, moisturizer and clay mask -- that combine to offer women
 of color a complete skin care solution.
     Ms. Allen, whose acting credits include three Emmy nominations for her
 role as Lydia Grant on the hit TV show "Fame," operates her own dance school
 in Los Angeles.
     The Debbie Allen 5-Step Skin Care Collection is distributed exclusively by
