Are Modern Science-Based Cosmetics the way forward, or did the Leading Ladies of the past have the right idea about beauty?
Adriana Kostov discusses.
Today's women, some may say, have a plethora of beauty products at our fingertips, to achieve our beauty and aesthetic goals, and therefore have an advantage, over our female ancestors from the past.
However, are futuristic cosmetics, with a myriad of blockbuster ingredients, always better?
Not necessarily so, says Adriana Kostov.
“When you think about it" says Adriana Kostov, "historical beauties, such as Cleopatra, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Gina Lollobrigida, are still modern beauty icons, and these women, did not have the luxury of modern, science-based beauty products.”
“Back in the past, there was no such thing, as active ingredients, super-serums, lifting creams”, states Adriana Kostov, "and if you would have pointed a needle or a scalpel at such a classic beauty's face, and tell her, she requires a filler, she would have likely reacted in horror, at the thought, of touching her flawless face and soft skin with a needle".
It was about natures ingredients, basic products, to maintain classical feminine features, and super-soft skin, which equated, to feminine beauty.
"Cleopatra, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Gina Lollobrigida, are women who epitomise feminine beauty, they have withstood the test of time, yet, they were devoid of modern "miracle serums" and scientific ingredients of which, we have today," says Adriana Kostov.
So, is modern science necessary to achieve classic beauty?
“I don't necessarily think so”, states Adriana Kostov. “Women are, naturally beautiful creatures, and don't need much, to enhance their natural beauty”, says Adriana Kostov.
“Whilst modern cosmetics and super-serums may have their place”, states Adriana Kostov, “simple ingredients, such that the classic beauties of historical times relied upon, are just as great”.
“Sometimes simple and classic, is best, when it comes to beauty and cosmetics”, says Kostov, “and perhaps, the classic beauties, had the right idea, about timeless and simple beauty.”
