A Look at the Conception and Development of Cosmetic and Beauty Products
Beauty Products comes in all forms, shapes and sizes. They come in every color imaginable, even though most colors tend to fade after some time. The packaging is amazing in that it can make the difference between a successful product and one that does not. Many companies are constantly trying to find new ways to package and market their products to keep up with the fast pace of the beauty industry and keep people interested.
Cosmetics are made up of a blend of synthetic compounds extracted from either natural resources or chemically made ones. The most common types of cosmetics used to cover our skin are moisturizers, toners and cleansers. Cosmetics intended for dry skin can be used alone to cleanse, treat and hydrate the skin, and as well for replenishing it, with the application of toners, cleansers and moisturizers. Beauty products that have been designed for normal, oily and combination skin can also be used as part of the routine to maintain these skin types.
Skin lotions are one of the oldest forms of beauty products. As time has passed, they have been defined by improvements in technology to better reflect a persons natural pigment, thereby defining cosmetics for different skin tones. For example Fair skinned women’s lotion has more oil content, a form of natural sunscreen, while those with darker skin tones can use the lighter lotions that do not add much oil and yet provide protection against the sun’s harmful rays.
Another term commonly used to define new beauty products is “makeup”. When referring to makeup, it is normally applied to the face, using brushes, sponge, makeup sponges, etc. Makeup can be worn, only during the daytime, or can be mixed with clothes to change your daily appearance. It should not be confused with the term “towel applied” because that refers to any type of face or body paint, while a makeup on the face refers only to cosmetics. These days, most women prefer to mix makeup themselves, which allows them more control over the look they want, rather than simply purchase ready-made products, which can be quite expensive and may contain harmful ingredients.
Some women think that to be truly beautiful, they need to spend thousands of dollars on various beauty products. However, this is not the case. Just as food and water are the three main pillars of health, so are cosmetics, hair care, make-up, perfumes and toiletries essential for beauty. In fact, beauty is the result of the sum total of all these elements working together in harmony to enhance and improve a person’s physical appearance and personality. One woman who has spent hundreds of dollars on cosmetic products over the years said: “I have spent so much money on beauty and makeup that I am embarrassed of my face.” This woman was not one of the rich and famous, but was a regular woman with limited finances who felt that beauty products were necessary for herself and for others.
In conclusion, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, with everybody having a different idea of what beauty is and how it should be expressed. The cosmetic and beauty industry has responded to increasing demands by creating a range of beauty products that address different concerns. Anti-aging products, for example, have been developed to combat the signs of aging, while moisturizing and firming anti-aging facial products are designed to tighten skin and give skin a youthful, fuller appearance.
