Skin Care From the Past – Part 1: How Skincare Impacted the 1950s

Skincare News reminisces about the 1950s and the makeup and skin care trends of that era.

Sacramento, CA, December 20, 2006 --( Skin care has deep roots that stretch back to the beginnings of Hollywood and a time when everyone really knew how to be glamorous.’s latest article, “Blast From The Skincare Past (Part 1)” takes readers back in time and explores the skin care trends and makeup looks that made the 1950s memorable.

The 1950s was filled with many characters and legends on the silver screen. Skincare and makeup trends played a major role back then in the same way they do currently: 

The Fabulous Fifties was a decade of wholesome family values intermingled with fun and flirty freedom. Women in the media were always portrayed as glamorous, whether they were housewives or super beautiful vixens. The 1950s was also an era of high fashion, and with it came a whole new slough of makeup and skincare trends. Skin care in the 1950s was a big deal, as women wanted to look their best, just as ladies of today do as well. 

The article tells readers what looks were “in” in the 1950s to give a better idea of what was thought of as glamorous: 

While we obviously have more skin care options today when it comes to purchasing, the women of the 1950s definitely got creative and embraced the skincare selection available to them. The "peaches and cream" complexion was the basis of all Fifties skincare trends. All of their foundation and pressed powders were virtually required to have a soft and feminine look if they wanted to catch on in popularity within the skin care market.

The movie stars of the 1950s exuded beauty, sex appeal and charm…and they expected the skin care and makeup industry to step up to their demands:

The Fifties was the era where the skincare industry started to focus on makeup more than ever (due largely to the birth of color movies), and Max Factor as well as others helped to drive the skin care market into the multi-million dollar industry that we know today. 

According to skin care expert Samantha Peterman learning about the skincare and makeup of the 1950s gives a great insight to how these two industries have become what they are. “There is so much history when it comes to makeup and skin care products. If it wasn’t for these tools, the movie stars wouldn’t have been so beautiful and this era wouldn’t have been glamorous. It’s worth taking a look back into the past to see how far the future has come.” covers all skincare and beauty topics from head to toe. Check out these latest articles:
