About Me

Facing Your Best Self  

Preserving the skin's vitality is my job, I've studied and trained with dermatologists, plastic surgeons, wellness professionals and holistic healers to gain extensive knowledge about every skincare situation both men and women face.  For more than 20 years I've been responsible for celebrity clients to uphold their personal image and appearance.  Based on my experience as a licensed professional and celebrity makeup artist I realized black men needed to know more about taking care of their skin.  Cole Skincare for Men was developed based on principles of owner Cole Patterson "Nurture The Skin Within" to help her clients better understand the causes for certain skin conditions and problems.  I'm thrilled to share with you my secrets used to help my male clients maintain spectacular skin "The Fix for Fit Skin."  Cole Skincare for Men is an investment in your health and wellness to live and look your best life.  We are a diverse community of men and women who want to enhance their lifestyle.  




When I  launched Cole Skincare for Men I knew the importance of having  valuable treatments, tools, and techniques accessible to those seeking ways to better their life in its entirety.   My  love for wellness and health spills over to my approach in aligning skin care with self care.  With many years specializing in ethic skin skin I aim to help individuals solve their problems, gain knowledge, and build a community of men and women to stay connected.  Cole Skincare for Men is not the latest craze, fad or trend it's a lifestyle brand.   My love for Black Men is expressed in everything I do and what I present to the world as a woman and with the Cole Brand.  To continue to provide Black Men with quality ingredients customized to fit their specific needs, I  am constantly researching and always watching other brands to uphold my brand's identity and maintain brand integrity.  My sole purpose for creating and developing Cole Skincare for Men is to represent Black Men and give them quality products they can depend on to deliver real results.  






I am the co-founder of SMP (Single Mom's Planet) an organization to empower single mothers and educate  single parent household on financial literacy to eliminate economic crisis.   SMP founder by Neferteri Plessy when we both became single mothers after divorce and were both face with challenges.   Changing the narrative and the image about single mother was our main goal to help each other thrive and to give mothers inspiration to move on in life and to prosper in business.  As you see I'm surrounded by beauty and my tribe of women consist of women from all walks of life.  To me this is what love, support and loyalty looks like.  Community is about those that stand by you and with you.  I believe there are so many lessons to learn in life regardless of the outcome.  The best thing is if you live through it you get to do it all over again.    














I start my mornings at 4:30 am mediating for 15-30 minutes to unite with a higher  consciousness followed by walks/jogs on the beach barefoot in the sand to connect with universe to express gratitude.  To support local farmers I visit Farmer's Markets during the week to prepare good, healthy, fresh food to maintain an open mind and good gut health.  I'm not much of an indoor workout person however I enjoy weight lifting, hot yoga, pilates, boxing and spin class.  No matter what your activity of choice is, moving the body keeps us in motion moving forward and upward in life.
