ScienceBecomesHer is a website for skincare enthusiasts who like to know the science behind skincare ingredients and how they work. We aim to help the scientifically curious find the right skincare ingredients and products for their skin type.
Why Is Science Becomes Her The Right Place For Scientific Skincare Advice?
Have you ever read an article about skincare ingredients, products, or skincare conditions and wondered where the author got their information from? Sometimes the internet can act as an echo chamber where the same information is repeated over and over again, but where did this information come from?
Skincare facts come from scientific research and, once there is enough scientific consensus on a subject (i.e. multiple research studies have come to the same conclusion), it is then often considered a fact.
At sciencebecomesher.com we ensure that any information or facts stated are linked back to academic sources so that you don’t need to take our word for it!
What Are Our Aims?
At sciencebecomesher.com, we aim to:
- Provide skincare advice that is heavily researched and based on science.
- Use our articles as a way of collating scientific research in one place.
- Write for those who have an interest in the science of skincare but prefer things explained simply and with less jargon.
- Help direct our readers to products that may suit their skin needs.
- Report on new and interesting skincare research.
In case you’re wondering about the name, Science Becomes Her is a play on the phrase (and classic 90’s film) ‘Death Becomes Her’, that refers to someone looking better in death than in life. In this case, Science Becomes Her refers to a person looking better through scientific knowledge – i.e. science looks good on you!
That’s basically what Science Becomes Her aims to achieve; to provide you with the knowledge to make informed and evidence-based decisions about your skincare products and get that little step closer to the soft glowing skin of your dreams!
