Women around the globe are showing their beautiful, dark-skinned faces to combat shadeism.

In South and East Asia, Africa, and in other countries around the globe, women’s beauty is frequently evaluated based upon the shade of their skin, with fair skin tones thought about more appealing than darker skin. Shadeism or colorism often also associates success and power with fair skin.

International companies reinforce that deeply troublesome mindset through their skin-whitening products. In India, for instance, one of the hottest selling facial cream brands is Hindustan Unilever s Fair & Lovely lotion. Regardless of a project called Dark is Beautiful that assisted push India to prohibit discriminatory commercials for fairness products in 2014, the attitudes displayed in this 2010 advertisement still dominate.

To combat this antagonism to darker skin, three students from the University of Texas have actually launched a brand-new project to combat an age-old problem. They’re motivating dark-skinned women from worldwide to post pictures of themselves on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook with the hashtag #unfairandlovely.

Which Types of Contraception Are the Worst for Your Skin?

There's absolutely nothing even worse than acne that appears to flare from nowhere. (Grrr!) But according to a brand-new research study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, certain kinds of hormone birth control may be to blame.

Researchers examined self-reported information from 2,147 female acne sufferers (ages 15 to 51), all of whom were taking some form of hormone contraception. The essence: Vaginal rings and the Pill (particularly, integrated contraceptive pills) normally enhanced acne in clients, while injections, subdermal implants, and single-hormone IUDs created chaos. The latter group really wound up causing the worst outbreaks because they consist of just androgenic progestin’s (aka male hormonal agents), which get cancelled by estrogen in the other BC kinds.
