― Genelia D’Souza

“I wouldn’t mind meeting some of the people I’ve attempted to portray from the olden, olden days. They probably would all have really terrible skin and horrible bad breath, and I’d have to give them an Altoid.”

― George Ezra

“I’ve gone to skin doctors and they’ll say to you, ‘We should remove this because it’s pre-cancerous,’ and I’ll say, ‘Explain pre-cancerous to me.’ I’ll listen for about twenty minutes and I’ll say excuse me, ‘Is pre-cancerous like pre-dead? So you’re saying it could turn into cancer but it’s not cancer?’”

“As a first-time director, you act a lot like a teenager. I made decisions because I was hotheaded. My skin broke out. I was trying to understand who I am.”

― Gia Coppola

“I’m comfortable in my own skin. I know I’m not going to ever be Cindy Crawford or Elle MacPherson.”

― Giada De Laurentiis

“I’ve built up such a thick skin. It’s very easy to take one comment – whether it be a really mean comment that digs deep or just something rude – and really run with it. It’s so easy: if there are 100 comments, and 99 are nice, you just run with the bad one.”

― Gigi Gorgeous

“I personally think my sister is so stunning without makeup. And she doesn’t wear that much makeup because she has the best skin color.”

― Gigi Hadid

― Goapele

“I don’t wear that much makeup. I’ll do a little concealer here and there and apply some mascara. It just depends on how I’m feeling that day, but I try and go days without makeup just because I think it’s healthier for skin to breathe.”

― Goapele

“I often have said that to be a college president, you need a thick skin, a good sense of humor, and nerves like sewer pipes.”

― Gordon Gee

“I find that when I put too much makeup on, or I use a certain brand, my skin will break out. I tend to gravitate towards water-based foundations because my skin absorbs them a little better and it doesn’t break out as much. I use Hourglass Mineral Veil. It’s so amazing.”

― Grace Gealey

“I am very disciplined with my skin – I tone and I moisturize my skin twice a day. I also exfoliate, and I try to get a facial, like, once every two months.”

― Grace Gealey

“Everyone has strange teenage years. It’s not like I can claim some particularly unique set of high school horrors. I think I was just an awkward kid who never felt comfortable in his own skin. I think I was alone a lot by circumstance and then by choice.”

“I genuinely do think that skin does have a lot to do with genetics. I was blessed. You should see my mom and grandma – it’s unfair!”

― Hailey Baldwin

“I don’t do facials – I don’t really enjoy people picking at my skin. I’d rather a dermatologist who’s a doctor for that do that.”

― Hailey Baldwin

― Halima Aden

“You don’t have to show a lot of skin to be beautiful.”

“I sleep with aloe vera on – it’s super moisturizing and good for the skin – and I’ll switch that up with honey, which I leave on for 10 minutes then wash off.”

― Halima Aden

“Moisturizing every night is important. When you’re 50 or 60, it’s going to show if you don’t take care of it. You have to prepare when you’re young, so you still have that healthy, glowing skin when you’re 60 or 70.”

― Halima Aden

― Helen Fisher

“The most difficult thing for me is a portrait. You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt.”

― Henri Cartier-Bresson

“The appendages of the skin are the nails, the hairs, the sudoriferous and sebaceous glands, and their ducts. The nails and hairs are peculiar modifications of the epidermis, consisting essentially of the same cellular structure as that membrane.”

― Henry Gray

“The muscles are connected with the bones, cartilages, ligaments, and skin, either directly or through the intervention of fibrous structures called tendons or aponeuroses.”

“I love the smell of a man’s skin.”

― J. Courtney Sullivan

“Barack Obama was elected during my second year of college, and save for his skin color, he had much in common with Bill Clinton: Despite an unstable life with a single mother, aided by two loving grandparents, he had made in his adulthood a family life that seemed to embody my sense of the American ideal.”

― J. D. Vance

“There’s a stigma attached to ‘pop music,’ like it’s a taboo word. It used to make my skin crawl when people said it, and I’d say, ‘I’m not a pop star! I want to be a respected musician!’ But I think people have changed the way they think about it.”

― Jack Garratt

“Having one’s image, and effectively, life, democratized, dehumanizes and sometimes objectifies it into an entertainment product. What sort of valuation of the ego would one have once you’ve let it been preyed upon by the public for years and years? Perhaps, it becomes truly just skin and bones.”

― Jack Gleeson

“Water really does great things for my skin.”

― Jackee Harry

“Like academic Marxists, who are their sisters under the skin, libertarians are far more interested in an ideal world than in the one where ordinary humans live.”

― James Mercer

“Brain surgery is a fairly aggressive process. There’s a lot to get through. There’s the beautiful, delicate shaving first, which is really lovely. There’s a wonderful ceremony of putting all the covers on, so only the little bit you’re operating on is revealed. But once they make the incision and tear the skin back, the drill comes out.”

― James Nesbitt

“I feel that I want to use light as this wonderful and magic elixir that we drink as Vitamin D through the skin – and I mean, we are literally light-eaters – to then affect the way that we see.”

― James Turrell

“Making a movie with people of all different ethnicity, all different skin color and different backgrounds, meant that the movie can literally play all around the world. It’s not just a blanket whitewash film like most Hollywood films tend to be.”

― James Wan

“I think that there should be this thing for cover-ups on tattoos. I want to develop it. It’s like a skin-toned transfer, and then all the make-up artist has to do is airbrush over it to blend it into the skin. There’s nothing like that. At the moment, you literally have to go red and get it to skin color, which takes forever.”

― Jamie Campbell Bower

― Jamie Parker

“I suppress stress to the point where it will force its way through my skin in the form of a large angry pimple because that’s the only channel it has.”

― Jane Fallon

“As far back as I can remember, I have worshipped the sun. My skin is fair, but as the years have gone by, it has toughened and darkened. I now turn a rich golden brown every summer, but only after the first day of burning.”

― Jane Green

“The bad news is that my thin melanoma has something called mitosis, which means the cancer cells are dividing and multiplying even as I write. My thin melanoma has already spread outside of the tumor and into the deep layers of skin.”

― Jane Green

“Melanoma is not the most common of skin cancers, but it is the most dangerous if not found in the early stages.”

― Jane Green

“As a child, growing up in Hampstead, North London, I was shockingly fair-skinned. Holidays involved me spending the second and third day face-down on a bed, shrieking should anyone touch my blistered skin.”

― Jane Green

“I needed my own territory, and I didn’t know how I was going to get it. And so I took my frustrations and plugged them into someone entirely different from me. I wanted to see if I could slip into someone else’s skin.”

― Jane Hamilton

“If I have makeup, I use a cleanser, but otherwise, I just use a hot cloth at the end of the day to keep moisture in my skin without stripping it off. I do splurge on La Mer, but other than that, I use just use Nivea from the drugstore!”

― Jared Leto

“Contouring makes a huge difference in your bone structure! I don’t do it every day, because when I’m not working, I like to keep my skin fresh.”

“Having glue stuck to your face in winter is not fun. It freezes as it hits the skin.”

“I had an idea for a story about a young woman who was living with people who were different, not just superficially different – such as hair colour, or eye colour, or skin colour – but different in some significant way.”

― Jean M. Auel

“Getting Richard Norris his new face wasn’t easy. For starters, doctors needed a donor who wasn’t just a favorable blood match but also had the proper skeletal features and skin color – they calculated only a 14 percent chance they’d find one. Then there was the epic surgery that took a team of 150 people.”

― Jeanne Marie Laskas

“A face isn’t an organ, like a liver or a heart. A face is muscles, nerves, bones, and skin. A face is more like a hand or a foot.”

― Jeanne Marie Laskas

“My father Lloyd Bridges was very versatile in his parts, but he had a hit in the ’60s ‘Sea Hunt,’ where he played a skin diver. And he was so into that role that people actually thought he was a skin-diver.”

― Jenna Morasca

“I developed acne when I was about 19, at the beginning of my modeling career. I didn’t have the huge cystic-type of acne, but a lot of little bumps all over my face. They were small, but you could see them in photographs. You can’t have acned skin and work as a model.”

― Jennifer Flavin

“I’ve had more acne as an adult than I had as a teenager. After weaning babies, my skin’s gone totally bonkers. I didn’t even know about dermatologists until I had weaned my first baby, and my skin was so damaged. It was just beyond. And then, I realized, there’s a whole doctor who can help you with this.”

“I always see bridal as a cultural thing: you have to get under the skin to find out what is needed in that market. For instance, the Italians love plain dresses, and the Americans loved beaded ones.”

― Jenny Packham

“To understand the intensity of driving an F1 car, you have to be in it. When you’re driving a 750hp machine at 200mph, the noise and the vibrations are incredible. The G-force when you take big corners is like someone trying to rip your head off. You hit the brakes, and it feels as if the skin is being pulled off your body.”

“This is the pain pacemaker. I’ve got a battery under my skin. From that battery are two electrodes that go into the spine where they cut bone away to accommodate it. Now I put on the power here. If I have the pain, the stimulator starts. It’s tingling, like when your foot falls asleep, you know?”

“My skin was really bad. Roxanne Rizzo’s products were the first things that really cleared it up.”

― Jess Glynne

“People say that one of the most important things about being an actor is to have thick skin, but I don’t think that’s it. Because you can’t just walk around being tough, you have to be able to be vulnerable to do this. So really, it’s about not being defensive.”

― Jess Weixler

“I hate pork rinds. I couldn’t imagine how anybody would ever get the idea of taking skin from a pig and frying it and then trying to sell it to people. And then people actually buy it to eat it. That is the true sign of the decline of the human race.”

― Joel Kinnaman

“Have you seen these Japanese hospital droids, or humanoids, or whatever they call it? They’ve perfected the skin, and the skin looks so real. They have these motors between the eyes for when they smile. It’s just mind-blowing.”

― Joel Kinnaman

“Ajax is a multicultural club, and we have found that many talented immigrant players quit when they reach puberty. So we wanted to tackle this problem with someone from the same background who had come through it. And that was Edgar Davids. During one of our fights, I pointed that out to him. But it had nothing to do with his skin colour.”

― Johan Cruyff

“We see through the eyes of children that they’re not talking about race the way we grown folks are. They’re not talking about color or how much melanin is in someone’s skin.”

― John Boyega

“Khrushchev reminds me of the tiger hunter who has picked a place on the wall to hang the tiger’s skin long before he has caught the tiger. This tiger has other ideas.”

― John McEnroe

“Learn to know every man under you, get under his skin, know his faults. Then cater to him – with kindness or roughness as his case may demand.”

“It is among the evils of slavery that it taints the very sources of moral principle. It establishes false estimates of virtue and vice: for what can be more false and heartless than this doctrine which makes the first and holiest rights of humanity to depend upon the color of the skin?”

― John Quincy Adams

“When you sit at your desk, if you’re lucky, there’s a moment when you feel empowered to be someone or something else, to leap into another skin.”

“I’m doing a film called ‘Black Mass’ where I play James Bulger. The reason to play him is obvious to me. He’s a fascinating character. It’s not like anything I’ve done before on that level. I’m very excited to slide into that skin for a little bit.”

― Johnny Depp

“Of course I was bullied and of course I was called names – my last name is Weir. That’s very, very close to ‘weird,’ or ‘queer’ and any of those words. But I’ve never been anyone to cry over spilled milk or be upset because kids don’t like me, or people don’t like me… It makes my skin stronger and thicker. And why cry? Your mascara runs.”

― Johnny Weir

“I was journaling in Florence, and I was like, ‘Oh, I have to come out of the closet. I have to break up with this guy’ – he was my ‘roommate.’ So that was my awakening moment, when I stepped into my own skin while in a foreign country by myself and had a very stereotypical moment of revelation.”

― Jonathan Groff

“The perfect way for an angler who loves to cook to show off his fish is serving it whole, fresh off the grill, with crispy skin and moist flesh. Problem is, that’s not usually how it happens.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“I distinguish sentiment from sentimentality. Sentimentality makes your skin crawl. It’s like too much sugar. But, sentiment is a great feeling.”

― Josh Radnor

“I have a very thick skin altogether – surprisingly, many actors are rather fragile, but I get that of the 10 million people watching an episode, probably 3 million hate me, and I’m comfortable with that.”

― Joshua Malina

“I think with age you get wiser and understand the importance of taking care of your skin. I think you’re also more aware of your mortality.”

― Josie Bissett

“I like an occasional glass of wine, though I don’t drink before a shoot or a show – blotchy skin is not a good idea, however good your make-up artist.”

― Jourdan Dunn

“An African woman carries heavy loads anyway. That’s how we are trained; we are brought up that nothing is unbearable. I use that now, positively. I use that now to have the thick skin that I have, and not fear, and move forward, and push; and push forward.”

― Joyce Banda

“It’s heavy, but I am able to carry it. Why? Because I’m an African woman. An African woman carries heavy loads anyway. That’s how we are trained; we are brought up that nothing is unbearable. I use that now, positively. I use that now to have the thick skin that I have, and not fear, and move forward, and push; and push forward.”

― Judge Mills Lane

“The truth is I’ve always taken very good care of my skin and always, always worn make-up.”

― Judy Parfitt

“I’m trying to get under people’s skin in a way. I don’t like films that go in one ear and out the other.”

― Julia Leigh

“The body is a great machine, and it knows how to take care of itself. I think more often than not the things we do to our skin or our bodies can hold it back from doing its proper job.”

― Julie Andrews

“There are technical tricks that may help you create more effective characters. My approach to characterization is not at all technical. I can’t really analyze how I do it, but I am sure of one thing. To write convincing characters, you must possess the ability to think yourself into someone else’s skin.”

“I can understand going for Botox at 45-50, when you want to keep things in place. But I don’t understand 25 year olds going for Botox or under the knife. You don’t require it. Your skin is fresh, young. Why would you do that to yourself?”

― Kajol

― Kalki Koechlin

“I am very comfortable in my own skin.”

― Karen Carney

“If we see a sad rain, it doesn’t mean the rain is sad, but it means we see it. That’s an easily dismissible kind of projection. But what I’m struggling to say, is that we take that rain in through our own hearts and emotions and senses and skin, and all those filters have an impact.”

― Karen Joy Fowler

“You have to grow thick skin and that only comes with time and learning.”

― Karlie Kloss

“I wash my face, steam it, and put on a mask right after because the steam opens up your pores. I put the mask on for ten minutes, wash it off, and then melt an ice cube all over my face because that tightens your pores. Then if it’s nighttime, I do a night cream or serum or an oil, something to keep your skin moisturized.”

― Karrueche Tran

“I see a lot of girls whose concealer is way too light, or their foundation is way too dark, or I can see when their neck and face color don’t match. I think it’s very important to find the right foundation and concealers and the right brands that really complement your skin.”

― Karrueche Tran

― Kate Moss

“My biggest advice for girls – and this is something that I wish I could have known when I was younger – is to have thick skin. It’s something that you definitely develop when you get older, but when I first started, I was so obsessed with pleasing everybody. I wanted everybody to like me and to like my songs.”

― Kate Voegele

“Redheads were particularly persecuted during the European witch trials of the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The colour was associated with the devil, and the pale skin which most redheads have was thought unnatural and deathly.”

“I know the true meaning of getting by by the skin of my teeth; I do. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got money or you haven’t, whether you’re famous or not. This is the case for all women, actually; you have to carry on. You always have to carry on. And you can, because you have to.”

“As a teenager, skincare is about putting no oil on your skin because you don’t want any blemishes, and then in your thirties, you’re putting as much oil as it can take to avoid wrinkles!”

― Katie Holmes

“I am really terrible when it comes to guys. Inside, I just see myself as this overweight tomboy with funny-coloured hair and bad skin.”

― Katie McGrath

“The Tea Party was regularly smeared in media as a violent, bigoted, ‘astroturf’ movement hellbent on opposing the first black president because of his skin color rather than his big-government policies. These classifications were made without evidence, and there were many more.”

― Katie Pavlich

“Stained glass is unique from the outside, but as a painting insider, I know that oil painting’s all about light. And it’s about the depiction of light, the way that it bounces off different types of skin, different landscapes. The mastery of that light is the obsession of most of my painter friends.”

― Kehinde Wiley

“I taught myself to paint African-Americans, mostly people roughly my skin tone.”

― Kehinde Wiley

“Could people be trained to be less gullible? Or are you as stuck with gullibility as you are with skin colour?”

― Keith Henson

“I’m not talking ideas, or even presentation. It’s like in politics: You have to sell something to become an electric player – like your skin or your heart.”

― Keith Jarrett

“I love being brown, so I love using Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder. I use it everywhere: my forehead, my cheekbones, a little bit by my chin. It gives me a golden balance that I really like. I also use the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector for my highlighter right underneath my eye. It’s a pretty color – it’s not too much and not too little.”

― Keke Palmer

“Soccer fans spend almost as much time outdoors as we do! Whether you’re heading out onto the field for practice or cheering from the sidelines, throw a broad spectrum sunscreen into your bag to help protect your skin from the sun.”

― Kelley O’Hara

“It makes my skin crawl to think about the violent ways snakes, lizards, alligators and other exotic creatures are raised and killed for boots, bags and belts.”

― Kelly Brook

“I go for regular facials. But I think the secret of great skin is to keep it as clean as possible, so I go without make-up on my days off.”

― Kelly Brook

“The more normal it gets for people to see people of a gender or skin tone they wouldn’t expect in jobs that they wouldn’t expect, or speaking a way they wouldn’t expect them to, the more it cultivates a sense that we share more than separates us.”

― Kelly McCreary

“It’s funny that all these goths paint their faces with such white make-up and that is the actual colour of my skin, I am that pale!”

― Kelly Osbourne

“I remember I went through a period where I didn’t embrace my ‘chocolatiness.’ I don’t know if that’s a word, but I didn’t embrace my chocolate lifestyle. Just being a chocolate, lovely brown skin girl and being proud of that.”

― Kelly Rowland

“Always wash your face before you go to bed – skin care is key.”

“I don’t have time for any special skin routines. Many a night I go to bed with the gloppy mascara and all.”

― Keri Russell

“The lighter the skin, the more acceptable you are. The darker the skin, the more marginalised you become. I want to demonstrate that you can produce beauty in the context of a figure that has that kind of velvety blackness. It can be done.”

― Kerry James Marshall

“If my skin is feeling a little dry, I use La Mer face cream. I also love their Eye Concentrate. It goes on with this little metal ball thing that’s very refreshing.”

― Khloe Kardashian

“Even though I was very young, it was traumatizing seeing someone try weird things on their skin all for the sake of being lighter. It’s as common as relaxing your hair or maybe even brushing your teeth. I had friends not wanting to do it, but their moms gave them creams to help lighten their skin. That’s how accessible it is.”

― Khoudia Diop

“I grew up in Senegal, where more than 50 percent of the women bleach their skin, and skin bleaching is a huge deal. I grew up seeing my cousins and my aunts using it.”

― Kris Jenner

“I make sure that, every morning, my skin is really well moisturised. I use my sunscreen; I make sure I wash my face at least once during the day. I try not to overdo it, just so if there’s any dust on my face, it doesn’t settle into my pores.”

― Kriti Kharbanda

“I’ve always wanted to make people feel better or feel alright or feel comfortable or not threatened and feel OK in their own skin.”

“Makeup looks better if your skin is not dry. And sometimes, if my skin peels, then it’s all just bad. Basically, take care of your skin to make your makeup look nice.”

― Kylie Jenner

“I can’t have brown hair for some reason. I don’t think it goes with my skin tone. The second I see it turn brown in the sun, I dye it black – the blacker the better.”

― Kylie Jenner

“I love Armani Face Fabric, Make Up For Ever HD, Rodial Skin Tint and Charlotte Tilbury.”

― Kylie Jenner

“I find the female tragedy of insecurity to be hilarious. We get obsessed over issues like the tiny skin tags on our backs or that we’re fat. You read one line in a magazine and it sends you into a tailspin.”

― Lauren Conrad

“If you want to train hard enough to go to the Olympics, then you’re going to go out, and you’re going to do it. It doesn’t matter what skin color or who you are.”

― Laurie Hernandez

“If you get into Scientology, you will go to auditing. It’s like therapy except that there is an E-meter between you and your auditor. That’s a device that actually measures your galvanic skin responses. It’s two metal cans that you hold. They used to be Campbell’s Soup cans with the label scraped off.”

“I use an acne cleanser. I’ve always had that St. Ives apricot scrub. But I have bad skin sometimes.”

― Lili Reinhart

“I love to apply my foundation with BeautyBlenders – I just think it gives the most natural kind of glow, but I’ve learned from being on set that you should use a damp BeautyBlender but that you should dampen it with rosewater. It just kind of brings your skin to life a little bit more.”

― Lili Reinhart

“When my skin is breaking out pretty bad, I try to leave it alone as much as I can. I don’t want to pack on product after product, I think that makes it worse and kind of overwhelms your skin.”

― Lindsey Wixson

“For my beauty routine, it’s kind of complicated. It’s not easy at all. I like being natural, but natural is not really natural. To be natural, you need to have really good skin. This is really important.”

“I was jumping out of my skin. It was horrible. I was all over the place, because I’d never been in front of a live audience. That’s a whole other element in the play, the audience.”

“Because I’ve been around forever and ever, like wallpaper, people ask me for secrets… it’s the same with my skin care range; that’s out of necessity. As soon as I saw the first signs, I bought everything in the market.”

― Lulu Wang

“Growing up, I had really bad skin. I had a skin disorder. Yes, I did. And my mother went to great lengths to try to find something to remedy it. I remember she took a trip to Madagascar and came back with all these alternative, medicinal herbs and stuff. They didn’t smell so good, but I think they worked some magic.”

― Lupita Nyong’o

“Body concentrates order. It continuously self-repairs. Every five days you get a new stomach lining. You get a new liver every two months. Your skin replaces itself every six weeks. Every year, 98 percent of the atoms of your body are replaced. This non-stop chemical replacement, metabolism, is a sure sign of life.”

“I don’t like looking like a crazy person in my seat with a mask on, so I go into the airplane bathroom, put it on for a minute, and then I’ll wash it off. Once I’m out of the bathroom, nobody even knows I did the mask, but my skin does!”

“The whole idea of juicing is good if you are trying to diet and use it in limited basis. I use juice drinks only once a week. I use emulsified drinks because in emulsification you are keeping everything. You are keeping the pulp, you are keeping the skin with all of the phytonutrients.”

― Montel Williams

It was a place where they could come and find a sympathetic ear and a competent ally, a place where they would not be either turned away or cheated, a place where they might actually feel proud to be represented by men of their own skin color.”

― Nelson Mandela

“I’ve heard that I’ve gotten a lighter complexion, as if I’ve bleached my skin. I think that is so stupid and ludicrous. For those who want to bleach their skin, that’s fine. I just didn’t bleach mine. I’m a black woman. I don’t want to be anything but a black woman.”

― NeNe Leakes

“’Teen Moms!’ I started watching them like the first two seasons, and I stopped. I stopped because they are too young. I feel sorry for them. And I didn’t watch that show ‘Hoarders.’ That thing would made my skin crawl.”

― NeNe Leakes

“Our facial skins are thin with large pores; our back skins are thicker with small pores. One acts mainly as filter, the other mainly as barrier. And yet, it’s the same skin, no parts, no assemblies. It’s a system that gradually varies its functionality by varying elasticity.”

“Because glass is at once structural and transparent, it is relatively easy to consider the integration of structural and environmental building performance within a single integrated skin.”

“Could we design an all-glass building with internal channels and networks for airflow and water circulation? Can we surpass the great modern tradition of discrete formal and functional partitions and generate an all-in-one building skin?”

― Neri Oxman

“I love playing ‘Madame Vastra.’ Although I do suffer, spending three-and-a-half hours in make-up every morning to have her lizard skin put on. I was so excited the first day when we did the make-up test, but after six hours, I was like, ‘Can we finish now?’”

― Neve McIntosh

“I have never been one to show off too much skin, and it’s not just because I’m a larger woman.”

“With fiction, you can take something that bothers you, or that you don’t have in clear focus, and you can put it under as much stress as you want. Really get underneath the skin. With nonfiction, you’re restricted to what happened.”

― Phil Klay

“I picked ducks in a tub in my dorm room. I’d hang deer in the doorway between the bedroom and the little living room in our little apartment there, and I’d skin my deer, and all the guts would go in the tub, and I’d sneak them out so my fellow students on both sides wouldn’t see all that, you know. I’d clean fish up there and all.”

― Phil Robertson

“The biggest organ in your body is your skin, and it’s a permeable membrane. Anything you put on it goes into you. If you can’t pronounce most of the words on the back of the bottle, it’s probably not good for you.”

― Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

“There’s not many models in the U.S. that have my depth – like, really dark skin – that are also plus size. Skin color has been one of those things we haven’t really, really addressed on a large, widespread scale.”

― Philomena Kwao

“I think that the plus-size industry has been great with size diversity, but it hasn’t really been great for skin tone diversity.”

― Philomena Kwao

― Philomena Kwao

― Philomena Kwao

“For me, diverse beauty is an affirmation of every single person in his or her own skin.”

― Phyllis Diller

“I already had three strikes against me. One, I have light skin. Two, I’m from Miami, which wasn’t getting looked at at the time. Three, I’m Cuban. But now, I’ve made everything that stacked against me into a virtue.”

― Pitbull

“I would say I spend about an hour a day cleansing and moisturising after all of the make-up I’ve worn on jobs, and on weekends I tend to go bare-faced to give my skin a bit of a break.”

― Poppy Delevingne

“Coconut oil. I rub it through my hair, all over my skin, all over my body. Natural’s the better way to go.”

― Poppy Delevingne

“When I was a teenager, I was obsessed with black eyeliner all around the eye, but for someone with my kind of skin tone and hair colour, using brown is actually better than black. I’ve also learnt from makeup artists how to apply lipstick in the correct way: by starting with the Cupid’s bow first and working your way around.”

― Poppy Delevingne

“I live in my house as I live inside my skin: I know more beautiful, more ample, more sturdy and more picturesque skins: but it would seem to me unnatural to exchange them for mine.”

― Priyanka Chopra

“I can’t dance like Hrithik Roshan. I don’t have the necessary glamour like some of the other actors do. They are able to sell themselves on that aspect. I do roles and films which are very realistic. So, in those films, if you don’t get into the skin of it, they won’t look convincing.”

― R. Madhavan

“My unusual beauty tip is that I often use Vaseline to take my make up off. It works great and is good for sensitive skin.”

― Rachel Bilson

“As writers go, I have a skin of average thickness. I am pleased by a good review, disappointed by a bad. None of it penetrates far enough to influence the thing I write next.”

― Rachel Stevens

“At that age, feeling unpopular is difficult to handle. It’s a hard feeling to shake off. Feeling comfortable in my own skin has never been easy for me.”

― Radhika Apte

“You could ask a lot of people in my childhood, and they’d say I was very prudish about showing off skin.”

― Rain Dove

“A free society will abide unofficial, private discrimination, even when that means allowing hate-filled groups to exclude people based on the color of their skin.”

― Rand Paul

“Although skin color is undoubtedly the most salient signal of racial identity in America, other actual or imagined bodily features have also been seen as distinctive markers of Negritude. These include the shapes of heads, feet, lips, and noses as well as the texture of hair.”

― Randall Kennedy

“My father was Bolivian, which makes me half-Bolivian. It’s where I got some of my exotic features and certainly my skin tone.”

― Reggie Jackson

“I think ‘Settlers of Catan’ is such a well-designed board game – it’s the board game of entrepreneurship – that I made a knockoff called ‘Startups of Silicon Valley.’ It’s literally – it’s the same rules but just a different skin set to it.”

― Reid Hoffman

“Everything used to get under my skin, and now I’ll just be like, ‘That’s life.’ I’m so much more unbothered.”

― Ricardo Montalban

“Beauty is only skin deep, and the world is full of thin skinned people.”

― Richard Armour

“’Under the Skin’ is handsome, in a dour way, but inert – a cunning experiment that died in the shooting or on the editing table. You’ll want to get the DVD, though, and not just for its study of Scarlett. Odds are that the Making-Of documentary will be far stranger and more fascinating than the movie that was made.”

― Richard Corliss

“Every artist undresses his subject, whether human or still life. It is his business to find essences in surfaces, and what more attractive and challenging surface than the skin around a soul?”

― Richard Corliss

― Rita Moreno

“Daphne Guinness was amazingly comfortable in her skin, and she has an amazing collection in fashion that I wish I could just touch.”

― Rita Ora

“The fine line between roaring with laughter and crying because it’s a disaster is a very, very fine line. You see a chap slip on a banana skin in the street and you roar with laughter when he falls slap on his backside. If in doing so you suddenly see he’s broken a leg, you very quickly stop laughing and it’s not a joke anymore.”

― Roald Dahl

“Before you could actually have face-lifts, they would pull your skin around the back of your head with rubber bands, where they would tape it. And then you’d have to wear a wig over it to hide the rubber bands. It was not the most comfortable.”

― Rob Lowe

“The best meal I’ve had was in Tavarua, an island in Fiji. It was just before sunset. A bunch of guys had just caught all this yellow fin tuna; they literally brought this huge wooden table down to the sand, pulled the tuna from the boat, dropped it on top of the table, pulled the skin off and sliced the tuna up.”

― Rob Machado

“Anyone who tries to keep track of what is happening in China is going to end up by wearing all the skin of his left ear from twirling around on it.”

“What they smell isn’t the emotion of fear. What dogs can smell is the changes in a person’s skin that suggest fear to the dog, anxiety, the way your skin sweats, the amount of uric acid that suddenly pours out of your pores.”

― Robert Duncan McNeill

“In things a moderation keep; Kings ought to shear, not skin, their sheep.”

― Robert Herrick

“In fact when you combine stem cell technology with the technology known as tissue engineering you can actually grow up entire organs, so as you suggest that sometime in the future you get in an auto accident and lose your kidney, we’d simply take a few skin cells and grow you up a new kidney. In fact this has already been done.”

― Robert Lanza

“What I am is a heretic who’s recanted and, thereby, in everyone’s eyes, saved his soul. Everyone’s eyes but one, who knows deep down inside that all he has saved is his skin.”

― Robin Marantz Henig

“I’ve been out with some extremely beautiful women who have had no sex appeal whatsoever. It really is a lot more than skin deep.”

“Language is a skin: I rub my language against the other. It is as if I had words instead of fingers, or fingers at the tip of my words. My language trembles with desire.”

“One of Obama’s most impressive attributes is his quiet confidence: Voters sense that he is comfortable in his own skin, a dedicated father and friend who won’t waste time with the phony rituals of Washington.”

― Ron Fournier

“This is Romney’s biggest political weakness. His policy flip-flops and the general sense that he’s not comfortable in his own skin leads voters, including many supporters, wondering about his core values.”

― Ron Fournier

“President George W. Bush won reelection in 2004 largely because he was seen as comfortable in his own skin, while rival John Kerry was viewed as a flip-flopping opportunist.”

― Ron Fournier

“Part of the problem is voters know relatively little about Romney. And some of what they know about him complicates his task: Romney has a history of flip-flopping on issues, he’s extraordinarily wealthy, and he can be tone-deaf about what moves voters. He just doesn’t seem comfortable in his skin.”

― Ron Fournier

“It’s not the color of our skin that divides our nation; it’s the condition of our hearts.”

― Ron Hall

“I’ve never been pigeonholed and I’ve experienced so many different kinds of skin – what man will do and won’t do, what you should do and shouldn’t do. This is what’s exciting about being an actor; where philosophy majors sit in classrooms or write books about human behavior, we’re actually acting them out in front of cameras.”

― Ron Perlman

“It’s the whole white-supremacist movement, no matter what they call themselves – be it Klan, Nazis, alt-right, skinheads – the basic ideology is the same. They consider themselves superior to others because of their white skin, and we should not sleep on that.”

“You know Latin people? African-American people? How our skin ages more slowly? Even though we’re dramatic, we move our faces, we eat higher-fat foods, we’re the ones with fewer wrinkles – it makes you wonder.”

― Salma Hayek

“I will not have Botox. You know why? Because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetable, I eat everything. If you exercise and you don’t eat enough, it takes its toll on the skin.”

― Salma Hayek

“I think people are more than their heritage or their skin colour or their name or how they grew up.”

― Sam Esmail

“Lithium makes a fine battery because it’s a scarily reactive metal. Pure lithium ignites on contact if it touches water – a flake of it would sizzle and fry on the water-rich cells of your skin.”

“Virtually all of Darfur’s six million residents are Muslim, and, because of decades of intermarriage, almost everyone has dark skin and African features.”

― Samira Wiley

“May was young and beautiful, we were legally married, but she was caught in the prison of my skin.”

― Sammy Davis, Jr.

“Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.”

― Samuel Ullman

“I always wear sunblock before my makeup. Sometimes, as Latinas, we think our skin holds the sun better, even if it’s cloudy. That’s not true. You always need SPF.”

― Sandra Echeverria

“I always buy the smaller turkeys. On the pre-baste put pats of butter on the meat under the skin, put the skin back on, put a bunch of seasoning on the top, call it a day, put it in the oven. With a 10 – 12 pound turkey you are done in a couple of hours.”

― Sandra Lee

― Sarah Alexander

“I really like Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in the winter because it has SPF, and it’s still important to protect your skin from the sun in the wintertime. I’m also really into also vera – just organic, natural aloe vera gel that I put on all over my skin to moisturize.”

― Sarah Gadon

“Alas, summer sun can’t last forever. The days will grow cooler and shorter, and our skin will once again pale.”

― Sarah MacLean

“I had gone away from Twitter because before people had been so mean to me. Talking about my lisp and my enormous forehead and all these things. I do have a lisp, I do have a forehead I know you could land a plane on, it’s no mystery to me. I just didn’t have the skin for it.”

“The calluses on your feet in space will eventually fall off. So, the bottoms of your feet become very soft like newborn baby feet. But the top of my feet develop rough alligator skin because I use the top of my feet to get around here on space station when using foot rails.”

― Scott Kelly

“I’ve pretty much given up on the orange. I really have. I just don’t even bother. It’s just either sour, or woody, or the skin’s too thick. It’s very nice when you come across the perfect orange, because it’s really a beautiful experience. But the stakes are too high.”

― Scott Thompson

“I like success, but I don’t believe in it at the expense of other stuff. It’s more important to stay in my skin.”

― Sebastian Thrun

“I love to do three easy things in the morning: I’ll wash my face, I usually tone it, and then I’ll put a little bit of moisturizer on it – not tons, because I have really oily skin. I don’t have specific products I’m obsessed with; I just try different things. That’s how I’ve always been.”
