Skin Care Blast From the Past – Part 3: Skincare and the 1970s

Skincare News provides readers with its third installment of remembering skin care trends in the 1970s.

Sacramento, CA, January 05, 2007 --( Skin care definitely took a step back to the “au natural” look.’s latest article, “Blast From the Skincare Past (Part 3),” takes a reminiscent look back at the 1970s.

The article describes the scene in the 1970s that caused a stir within the beauty and skin care industry: 

Women's liberation continued to grow as a movement in the 1970s, inspiring women nationwide to cease from getting "done up" to make men happy. This lack of enthusiasm toward glamour and heavy use of cosmetics was furthered by the realization that the beauty industry itself was run mostly by men. 

Nostalgia fills the article, which is likely to set some readers back to the “good ol’ days”: 

Any woman old enough to remember the 1970s will clearly remember that females of this decade modeled themselves after the likes of Farrah Fawcett and other female characters on TV who emulated the "tough but pretty" persona through light makeup and flirty smiles.

The introduction of the first black supermodel also continued to challenge the beauty and skin care industry during this decade:

…the first black supermodel (Iman), entered the scene, causing the skincare industry - who normally focused mainly on cosmetics - to recognize the need for foundations, powders, eyeshadows, etc. for those of different nationalities. Pale and pure was no longer the norm, as the 1970s rocked the skincare scene and left a big beautiful mark on it forever.

According to skin care expert Samantha Peterman, the 1970s really solidified the role of cosmetics and skin care. “There was so much going on during the ‘70s that it was definitely a task that the beauty and skin care industry had to own up to. With the appearance of Iman, that really set the trend for that decade and it’s only continued to grow since then.” covers all skincare and beauty topics from head to toe.
