A new study shows women aren’t actually all that bothered by the full-face makeover that comes with skincares.
The results are more likely to be due to people not realizing that there are plenty of ways to wear their makeup without actually getting rid of all the makeup, according to a new study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Science.
The researchers compared the results of the two studies with those of a separate study that looked at the makeup-free condition of a different population, including college students.
“We’re not saying that women don, in fact, need to be in full-on makeup for beauty, but we’re saying that there is a lot of room for improvement,” said lead researcher Stephanie Lohr of the University of California, San Diego.
The study found that, in contrast to other studies, the women in the study who wore makeup were not significantly more likely than the control group to have acne, have a higher number of pimples, or be more prone to allergies and sensitivities.
“These are things that are very well known in the medical community that we know are associated with acne,” said Lohh.
“So I think the takeaway is that, really, there is plenty of room to improve and we’re just not doing a great job of it.”
Another thing the study showed was that the full makeup-less condition was not as severe or severe as the full face makeover, but was still associated with more serious acne conditions, like eczema, psoriasis, and psorosis.
In other words, even though makeup-based treatments were effective in terms of reducing the appearance of acne, it did not completely erase acne.
Instead, the results indicated that the women with full-faced makeup were more likely and had worse outcomes than the women without makeup.
In the study, which lasted 12 months, the researchers found that overall, the makeup effects on skin were about the same.
But the women who wore full makeup were much more likely, in their opinion, to experience acne, eczematous changes, and overall worse outcomes compared to those who wore only makeup.
The full-makeup effect also correlated with a higher incidence of psorias, rashes, and more serious allergies, including to bees, salmonella, and food-borne illness.
In fact, the study found, “in both groups, the acne rate, the overall acne rate was significantly higher after 2 months of using full-scent makeup.”
The full makeup effect was also associated with increased acne severity, including more severe acne, compared to the control condition.
The more serious allergy symptoms were also more common among the women using full makeup.
“This study shows that, regardless of makeup type, people with acne, sensitivities, or allergic reactions to products such as makeup, may be more likely when they are in full makeup than they would be otherwise,” said Dr. Sarah Gollings, a dermatologist and dermatology professor at the University College London who was not involved in the research.
“The more severe allergic reactions are probably due to the makeup in these products.
And the higher acne risk, the more severe the allergy.”
This study also found that the makeup effect didn’t correlate with skin pigmentation or makeup-specific skin health issues like acne.
And despite the makeup being more effective than other treatments, the findings suggest that makeup does not fully eradicate acne.
“If people are concerned about their acne, I don’t think they should get the full beauty treatment,” said Golling.
“It is very important to talk to your doctor about this.”
The study was conducted by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the University at Albany, in collaboration with the Agricultural Research Service.
It was funded by the U; USDA Agricultural Research Program and the U, Agriculture Department’s Research and Technology Directorate.
Dr. Lohar said she hopes the findings are helpful to other people with skin problems.
“I’m very encouraged by the findings,” she said.
“There’s a lot that we can do to make these products better for people with the same skin type.
It’s important to look at the whole picture, and if you’re going to be using them in your own skin, you should be aware of all of the potential issues and concerns that could arise.”
