Nope, Black Don’t Crack! Helen Williams

Meet Helen Williams!

Helen Williams, Owner of Tracy Chambers Vintage

How is she really? 44

Hometown: Queens, NY

It’s kind of a funny story…but it was really hard for me to get a job and be taken seriously because for years post high school I looked 12. Then for years after college, I looked 16. Having 3 kids has made me come full circle and look my age.

Beauty Secret Revealed: Getting plenty of rest and living a non-stressful lifestyle.

Must-Have Beauty Products: Kiehls Blue Astingent Herbal Lotion, Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, SPF 15.

Style Staple: Anything black on the bottom, but a splash of color daily.

Women please… don’t rush your life! Let moments happen to complete your journey.
