It might seem like each generation becomes more progressive than the last, but new studies suggest that millennials might be turning back the clock.
David E. Fisher, MD, PhD, and his team at Massachusetts General Hospital set out to tan skin while combating the risk of cancers and aging that can result from sun exposure — and it looks as if they’re well on their way. As a follow-up to a study released in 2006, Fisher and his team just came out with findings of an ingredient that may be applied topically to darken the appearance of human skin in a way that mimics the natural tanning process. Yahoo Beauty spoke with Dr. Fisher about the reasons why these findings are so important.
Millennials are recognized by their predecessors as the generation attached to their screens. And while this may be true and often criticized, a new study shows that there are positive outcomes from this behavior, including a spike in self-care behaviors.
There’s been a lot of conflicting coverage of the topic of hair loss in men. Depending on the source a bald guy talks to, he can be led to believe he’s either the sexiest man on earth (as long as he’s gone full bald) or the village pariah. There are also a number of studies suggesting that male baldness may be linked to health issues. Research shows that hair loss has measurable connections with heart disease and an association (though not a direct cause-and-effect relationship) with prostate cancer. ...
Donald Trump has been a longtime fan of a tanned look. Scientists in animal biology recently conducted a study that may prove that some of we humans may not be so far away from the beasts as we’d like to think. The goal of the study: to show how pigment in skin color can influence attractiveness.
A study surveyed 12-year-old children from 77 British families who had both pets and more than one child in the household. While admittedly a small sample size, the research poses interest, partially because few have investigated the importance of relationships between children and pets in psychology.
Yes, it’s true — researchers are one step closer to producing mass quantities of human skin. According to an article from Digital Trends, scientists from Spain have created a prototype for a 3D bioprinter that has the ability to manufacture skin that is comprised of an epidermis (the top layer of skin, which is responsible for making new skin cells, giving skin its color, and protecting the body) and dermis (the second, thicker layer of skin, which produces collagen, giving skin its elasticity and strength). “Over the past 15 years, we’ve been developing a method to produce large surfaces of human skin starting from cells that we isolate from a small biopsy of one patient,” José Luis Jorcano, professor of bioengineering and aerospace engineering at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, told Digital Trends.
There are four S’s and a slew of happy couples in Mississippi, according to a new study published in the Journal of Research in Personality in late December. The Magnolia State, along with Utah and Wisconsin, were found to be the best states for relationships, while the Dakotas ranked among the worst for intimacy. Bill Chopik, an assistant psychology professor at Michigan State University, and Matt Motyl, of the University of Illinois at Chicago, analyzed survey data gathered from 127,070 adults across the U.S.
Study: While Caucasians have a higher risk of skin cancer compared to the general population, people with skin of color are less likely to survive the disease.
Mason, one of the county’s top data scientist and CEO of data research firm Fast Forwards Labs, looks at quantitive data to apply numbers to prove what is the best burger in the country. In this video for Bon Appetit, Mason looks at more than 900,000 reviews of “burger eating experiences” around the country and looks for which ingredients are most popular with diners and which of those ingredients — “the bun, the meat, the cheese and the other stuff on top of it” — have the most favorable responses. To see which restaurant sells the best burger in America, you’ll have to watch the video, but here’s a hint — the bun on the country’s top burger is toasted.
We all understand the value of a first impression, but a new study has found that the specific cosmetics we wear can impact the way people judge a woman’s attractiveness, personality, and abilities, both consciously and unconsciously.
