:Newspaper_roll: How the world of skincare is encouraging more women to explore science



Inspiring article! It makes me want to know more about the actual chemistry behind skincare ingredients.


Another eye opening, confirming article. “I think a lot of people hear ‘there’s research, there’s a study,’ but there’s not enough people going, ‘Yeah, but does that study really come to the conclusion that you’re saying?’” says Chao. “There’s enough of a respect for science that people want to believe in things that seem scientific, but they don’t want to evaluate the claims carefully. There’s not enough of a focus on scientific literacy.” That quote says it all.


I really love finding out the science behind things. If there’s a skincare product I like, I try to figure out what components of it are causing the effects that I like and then see if I can translate that to other products.
