I'm a PhD student who spends all her time either in the lab or buying/reading about/playing with beauty products.
I started this blog because, being a geek, I ask “why” and “how” a lot, and when I asked these questions about health and beauty issues, the answers I usually got were along the lines of “_____ technology”, or “it works on a cellular level”, or “it performs well in clinical tests”. These answers are probably jargon-y enough to put off a lot of people from asking more, but this just annoyed me. I kept Googling. It got to the peer-reviewed scientific journal article stage.
And as I was wading through endless PDFs and search results, I realised that I couldn’t be the only one asking these questions. So I started this blog as a way of sharing the information I found, and presenting the science in an easy-to-understand way, so hopefully even the non-sciencey non-geeks (or as they’re commonly known, “normal people”) can get something out of it.
I also like painting my nails, and mixing things, so there’ll be a lot of manicures and DIY projects here as well!
I’m new to this blogging thing, wish me luck!
And leave questions or topics you'd like me to cover in the comments!
