Make yourself beautiful

A little different interpretation of “art and science” but I thought this was kind of cool:

Scientific American is hosting a podcast interview of Greg Hillebrand and Jay Tiesman from Proctor & Gamble who work on the science behind cosmetics.

It’s part of their in-depth series on The Science of Beauty, featuring a bunch of articles on the safety of cosmetic products, anti-aging, and even algorithms on how to choose the right lipstick color. And of course they have to bash you over the head with “don’t suntan!” articles.

Some of these are older, but some are brand new for this series.

My personal favorite article: More Activity = Slower Aging. Ha ha! I’m playing soccer until I can’t walk!
