Beauty Blurbs In The News

I found a couple of beauty blurbs in the November 2012 addition of ‘Womens Health Magazine. I thought I would share them with you.

The first spot talked about the names that cosmetic companies come up with for their products. From a study by University of Oregon, it was noted that women favored names that referred to something sexual or romantic. The study said the reason is because we find it exciting and leads us to imagine a hot scenario or a pleasant memory. I think NARS was listening when they named their blush Orgasm!

The other blurb was about wearing fake nails. The American Contact Dermatitis Society revealed that the main ingredient in the acrylic powder used to make acrylic nails, called acrylates, can cause itchy and painful cuticles and nails that are sore, dry, discolored and make them split. This article recommended that you take them off and head to your dermatologist to see if you are allergic to the acrylic.

And last, it is stated that 63% of black adults do not wear sunscreen. Folks, even dark skin can get cancer! And, studies show that when people of color discover they have skin cancer, it is usually more advanced than when light-skinned adults get it checked. Let’s put it this way: if you have skin, use sunscreen!!
