Being away from the sun can make you look twenty years younger.

Being away from the sun can make you look twenty years younger.

Forget glugging countless glasses of water or getting your beauty sleep. The secret of looking young is simply to stay out of the sun.
Stop being crazy about drinking water and sleeping beauty sleep. There is actually only one secret to staying young: staying away from the sun.

A study of hundreds of women has revealed that those who avoided the sun’s rays looked up to 20 years younger than they actually are.
After investigating hundreds of women, a study found that those women who stay away from the sun’s radiation look 20 years younger than their actual age.

However, other supposed rules for a youthful complexion, from drinking lots of water to sleeping well and exercising regularly, failed to hold back the hands of time.
Other universally recognized principles of maintaining youthful appearance, such as drinking more water, sleeping beauty sleep and exercising regularly, can’t stop the ruthless years from leaving marks on the face.

Only keeping out of the sun, and wearing sunscreen when this wasn’t possible, made a difference, the American Academy of Dermatology’s annual conference will hear today.
The annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology will announce this discovery: only by staying away from the sun, or wearing sunscreen when you have to be exposed to the sun, can you resist the years for several rounds.

The intriguing finding comes from a study of 231 women of all ages who were quizzed about their lives, including whether they were sun-worshippers.
This interesting discovery comes from a study of 231 women of all ages. The researchers conducted a questionnaire survey on their living habits, including whether they like to bask in the sun.

When researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital in the US – commissioned by skincare firm Olay – guessed how old the women were, they found those who took care in the sun tended to have aged more slowly.
Subsequently, commissioned by Olay, a skin care company, researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital estimated the age of these women and found that women who took sunscreen measures aged more slowly.

A lucky four had so few wrinkles and age spots, and such a glowing complexion, that they appeared to be a full two decades younger than they really were.
Four of them have almost no wrinkles and age spots, so radiant that they look twenty years younger than their actual age.

Researcher Dr Alexa Kimball, a professor of dermatology, said the popular perception that we drink lots of water to stay healthy is a myth and the body is ‘pretty good’ at judging how much we need.
Researcher Dr. Alex Kimble, a professor of dermatology, said that the popular view that drinking more water can keep you healthy is nonsense, and our bodies can accurately judge the amount of water we need.

Previous research by the British Nutrition Foundation reached a similar conclusion.
Previously, the British Nutrition Association’s research also reached a similar conclusion.

Experts there said: ‘Just drinking water for the sake of drinking water really has no effect on improving the appearance of skin.’
Experts from the association said: "Drinking water for the sake of drinking water really won’t improve the skin."

It isn’t clear why the women who slept well didn’t have younger-looking skin. But it may be that the question they were asked was too narrow and didn’t take into account their long-term sleep patterns.
As for why women with good sleep quality can’t have younger skin, the reason is not clear. However, this may be because the coverage of the questionnaire is too narrow and the long-term sleep patterns of the subjects are not taken into account.

A second study, also by Olay, suggested that low-level day to day exposure to the sun is more ageing that occasional, intense blasts.
The second study initiated by Olay Company shows that frequent exposure to low-intensity sunlight is more likely to make people aging than occasional exposure.

Finally, DNA examination of tiny samples of the women’s skin gave some insight into the damage done by the sun.
Finally, the researchers conducted genetic testing on female skin samples, which gave us a general understanding of the damage caused by sunlight to the skin.

A gene called CDKN2A was more active in facial skin that is exposed to the elements than on samples taken from the buttocks.
The researchers found that the gene named CDKN2A is more active in facial skin exposed to sunlight than hip skin away from sunlight.

This gene was also more active in women who said they loved the sun – and in those who looked older.
The gene is also more active in women who love sunshine-and these women look older.

Dr Kimball said CDKN2A activity is a sign that a cell is ‘tired out’ and urged women should protect their skin year round and not just when on a beach holiday.
Dr. Jin Bo said that the activity of CDKN2A gene means that cells are actually in distress, so she called on women to take skin care measures all year round, instead of waiting for a beach holiday to think about sun protection.

Dr Frauke Neuser, principal scientist at Olay, which has used the research to develop its latest face creams, said: ‘This research gives us a detailed picture of the effect of sun exposure on skin ageing and illustrate the importance of protection on a daily basis.’
Dr. flock Neuhser, the leading scientist of Olay, used these research findings to develop the latest cream. He said: "This study gives us a detailed understanding of the effects of sunlight on skin aging, indicating that daily skin care is very important."

"The biggest source of chaos in the world"

Korean War, Vietnam War, Afghanistan War … Today, let’s briefly review many wars launched by the United States after World War II to see what kind of war crimes this "world’s biggest source of chaos" has committed.

Korean War

Overview-On June 25th, 1950, Korean Civil War broke out. The Truman administration of the United States brazenly intervened with its Cold War mentality and ambition to dominate the world and contain communism, and rallied the so-called "United Nations forces" to launch an all-out war against the DPRK. On July 27, 1953, the Korean Armistice Agreement was signed, and the three-year Korean War ended.

Loss-Although the Korean War was short but extremely bloody, more than 3 million civilians died and about 3 million people became refugees. According to the statistics of the DPRK, the war destroyed about 8,700 factories, 5,000 schools, 1,000 hospitals and 600,000 families, and 2 million children under the age of 18 were displaced by the war.

According to the data, the US military secretly carried out germ warfare in northern Korea and parts of northeastern China. O ‘Neill, a prisoner of the US Air Force, said in his confession: "The US military chose to start germ warfare in winter … to test the cold-resistant germ weapons we made in a special laboratory. The ultimate goal is to use these bacterial weapons in germ warfare against countries with cold climates such as the Soviet Union and people’s democratic countries. "

Voice-"This is a wrong war with the wrong enemy at the wrong place and time." Omar bradley, then chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said.

Vietnam War

Overview-In 1955, the Vietnam War broke out. During the war, the United States fostered the pro-American regime in South Vietnam against North Vietnam. On May 14th, 1961, American "Special Operations Forces" invaded South Vietnam. On April 30, 1975, the last US helicopter left Saigon.

Losses-The Vietnam War killed 2 million civilians and displaced more than 3 million refugees. The US military is throwing about 20 million gallons of defoliants (orange agent), resulting in 400,000 Vietnamese deaths and 2 million Vietnamese suffering from cancer or other diseases. The US military is still leaving behind about 350,000 tons of explosive bombs and mines, and it is estimated that it will still take 300 years to completely remove them.

In March 1968, American soldiers slaughtered more than 500 people, including men, women and children, in Mylai village, Vietnam’s generalized province. This was the Mylai village massacre that shocked the world. According to the Los Angeles Times, in addition to the massacre in Mylai Village, there were at least 320 other incidents in which American troops massacred Vietnamese civilians during the Vietnam War, killing nearly 700 civilians.

Voice-In his speech in front of the Vietnam War Memorial Wall in 2012, former US President Barack Obama said that the cost of war is huge, and it will cause serious casualties among innocent civilians. War itself is not glorious and should be rejected.

Kosovo War

Overview-On March 24th, 1999, NATO led by the United States brazenly bombed Yugoslavia without the authorization of the United Nations, under the banner of "preventing the humanitarian crisis in Kosovo", and the Kosovo war broke out. In June, NATO signed an armistice agreement with Yugoslavia, and Kosovo was temporarily entrusted by the United Nations.

Losses-The war killed more than 2,000 innocent civilians, injured more than 6,000 people, displaced nearly 1 million people, and lost more than 2 million people’s livelihood, resulting in economic losses of more than 200 billion US dollars to Yugoslavia. According to statistics, NATO troops used at least 31,000 depleted uranium bombs, which led to a sharp increase in the incidence of cancer and leukemia in this region and had a long-term disastrous impact on the local and European ecological environment.

Voice-German writer Michael Luders once wrote in his book that after the Kosovo War in 1999, NATO went beyond the principle of collective self-defense and launched a military operation against Yugoslavia, causing civilian casualties in the name of humanitarianism. This shows that in the eyes of the United States and the European Union, human rights are only a secondary concern, especially when human rights standards are only applied to non-allies.

Afghanistan War

Overview-After the September 11th terrorist attacks in 2001, the United States and its allies launched a military strike against Afghanistan in early October of that year on the grounds that the Taliban in Afghanistan refused to hand over Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda, and quickly overthrew the Taliban regime and stationed troops for a long time. On August 30, 2021, local time, the last US military transport plane took off from Kabul International Airport. This "longest war in American history" ended in the sudden withdrawal of the US military.

Losses-According to statistics, 47,245 Afghan civilians and 66,000 to 69,000 Afghan soldiers and policemen unrelated to the "September 11th" incident were killed and more than 10 million people were displaced. The United Nations World Food Program warned in 2021 that about 98% of Afghans do not have enough food, and Afghanistan is facing "avalanche hunger and poverty".

During the war, U.S. warplanes bloodbath Laccagni village in Panjiwai district of Kandahar province and launched air strikes against it, killing 63 villagers, including a family of 17 people, and injuring dozens. The day before the complete withdrawal from Afghanistan, the U.S. military fired missiles at a white car parked in the courtyard of a family in Kabul, killing a family of ten people, including seven children.

Voice-"The killing of civilians, including children, by the US military in air raids has exposed the hypocrisy of the so-called human rights defenders in the United States. The international community should condemn the US for trampling on human rights and bring the criminals to justice." A villager in Laccagni village expressed such anger.

On December 16, 2003, the US military patrolled Wardak province in central Afghanistan. The war in Afghanistan, which lasted for nearly 20 years, became the longest war in American history. Xinhua News Agency reporter Wang Lei photo

Iraq War

Overview-In March 2003, the United States and its western allies invaded Iraq, bypassing the UN Security Council, on the grounds that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, despite the strong opposition of the international community. On August 18, 2010, the last US combat brigade left Iraq, marking the end of US military operations. On December 15, 2011, the United States officially announced the end of the US military mission in Iraq.

Loss-The war left the land that gave birth to the civilization of the two rivers riddled with holes, resulting in the death of about 200,000 to 250,000 civilians, of which more than 16,000 were directly killed by the US military. According to statistics, the total number of depleted uranium bombs exploded in Iraq exceeded 3,400 tons. Today, there are still about 25 million mines and other explosive remnants to be removed in Iraq. The Iraq war also broke the balance between the political forces in the Middle East after the Cold War, making the people’s livelihood in the region miserable and chaotic.

In November 2003, the Iraqi citizen Ala Karim Ahmed was arrested and imprisoned by the US military. In prison, American soldiers used police dogs, whips and shackles to force him to confess. According to Alla Karim Ahmed, at that time, the prison was often attacked by mortars from anti-American armed men. The US military could hide in bunkers, and the detainees had to resign themselves to fate. A shell landed in the prison, killing 37 people and injuring 104 others. In 2004, the photos of American soldiers abusing prisoners in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq were exposed, which shocked the world.

Voice-The website of American Atlantic Monthly once published: "Americans never really understand the cost of war, but they continue to fight. Only Iraqi civilians know the geometry of the cost of war."

A citizen of Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, once said sadly: "The United States has set Iraq back for 100 years."

[Syrian War]

Overview-When the civil war broke out in Syria in 2011, the United States and its western allies strongly supported the opposition armed forces and tried to overthrow the Syrian government. In September 2014, the United States initiated the formation of an international alliance to combat the extremist organization "Islamic State", expanded the scope of air strikes against the target of "Islamic State" from Iraq to Syria, and established several military bases in eastern Syria. Since 2017, the United States has launched an air strike against Syria on the grounds of "preventing the Syrian government from using chemical weapons."

Loss-From 2016 to 2019, there were 33,584 recorded civilians who died in the war in Syria. Among them, 3833 people were directly killed by the bombing of the United States-led Coalition forces, half of whom were women and children. According to the American public television network, the so-called "most accurate air strike in history" launched by the US military alone killed 1,600 Syrian civilians. The war has caused the people’s livelihood in Syria to wither. According to a survey conducted by the World Food Program in April 2020, about one-third of Syrians do not have enough food, and 87% of them have no savings.

Voice-Syrian political activist Wada Issa once said: "They (the United States) steal our resources here, create chaos and wreak havoc, and even have the nerve to call themselves the’ savior’ of the suffering Syrian people."

According to the data of the "War Cost" project of Watson Institute of Brown University in the United States, the total number of military and civilian deaths caused by the war launched by the United States in the "post-9.11 era" is as high as 929,000, and at least 38 million people have been displaced, and this is only a "very conservative estimate", and the actual number may be between 49 million and 60 million.

In addition to directly launching or participating in wars, the United States frequently interferes in other countries’ internal affairs by directly or indirectly supporting proxy war, inciting other countries’ civil wars, providing weapons and ammunition, and training anti-government armed forces, which seriously damages the social stability, public safety and healthy economic development of the countries concerned.

"The biggest source of chaos in the world", the United States deserves its name!

Clean Beauty is becoming a new fashion trend.

NPD, a well-known American market research organization, announced the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on the beauty industry. The data showed that the sales of beauty products dropped by 14%, but the sales of pure beauty products rose by 11% against the trend. According to Tmall data, during the period of June 18 this year, the sub-categories such as essence, mask, cleansing and makeup remover under Tmall International Pure Beauty category all increased by more than 100% year-on-year.

What is "pure beauty"? In August this year, Tmall International Beauty and COSMOHits, the beauty media, made a clear definition of the concept of "pure beauty" for the first time, including four aspects: harmless addition of ingredients, environmental friendliness and zero harm, animal friendliness and cruelty, and sustainable environmental protection and zero waste.

Since 2020, foreign big beauty groups have invested in adding more pure beauty tracks (for example, Shiseido Group acquired Drunk Elephant, a brand of pure beauty and skin care, for US$ 845 million, and Unilever acquired Tatcha for US$ 500 million), and domestic pure beauty brands also came into being.

36Kr recently came into contact with China pure beauty brand "Dewy Lab Yiyi", which was founded in 2020, aimed at the core consumer groups such as sensitive muscles, pregnant women, medical beauty crowd and new white-collar workers, focusing on cosmetic products with both "pure ingredients" and "excellent makeup effect" and advocating a romantic feeling of "self-satisfaction". It is understood that "Dewy Lab" won the "Blogger’s Choice" Award in Little Red Book 2021WILL Future Brand Award.

The picture is provided by the enterprise.

Dewy Lab launched its first new product "Morning" series in January this year, including three single products: morning dew foundation cream, morning mist powder and morning glow blush cream. After launching the brand Tmall flagship store and the official applet, the monthly sales of single products have exceeded 10,000 at present.

Amber, the founder of Dewy Lab, told 36Kr that most cosmetic formulations on the market now are mainly designed with the basic goal of "beauty", focusing on makeup effect and skin feeling, regardless of whether the ingredients are harmful to the skin. "Dewy Lab Love" started from the first series, and its products focused on makeup, trying to give consumers peace of mind protection from the part closest to the skin.

The picture is provided by the enterprise.

The standard of pure make-up advocated by "Dewy Lab" includes three aspects:

First,user friendlyThat is, it does not contain harmful and controversial chemical components such as talcum powder, plastic beads, mineral oil, nipagin ester, etc. In order to provide unique pure beauty products, the brand will not only bring the research and discovery of raw materials and formulas by Chinese scientists in universities such as Cambridge University and University of Pennsylvania back to China, so as to speed up the product iteration, but also become a strategic partner with China Inspection Department to strictly control the formula of each product.

Second,Friendly life, that is, no animal experiments, and pet-friendly, playing licking is non-toxic. At this point, "Dewy Lab" hopes to help the development of front-end toxicology testing in the future.

Third,Environment friendlyAdvocate the recyclability and degradability of product packaging materials, take carbon neutrality as the ultimate goal, and constantly optimize production methods.

It is reported that the core team of Dewy Lab is from Cambridge University, University of Pennsylvania and Nanyang Technological University, and their main research directions are pharmacology, biochemistry and chemistry, which are closely related to the makeup formula and raw materials. On the basis of referring to the European and American brand purity standards, according to the front-end research results and credible academic journals, they have formulated and constantly updated the scientific, rigorous and systematic "Dewy Lab" brand purity standards.

At present, the brand has explored the triangular structure of product research and development: 1) the team of brand scientists strictly controls the use of raw materials to ensure the safety of ingredients; 2) Joint research and development with the formula laboratory to jointly break through the bottleneck of pure formula and ensure the exclusive use of formula; 3) Each product must be tried by top makeup artists in the industry to ensure excellent makeup effect and skin feel.

Amber said that at this stage, "Dewy Lab Love" mainly relies on social media to strengthen the spread of brand value proposition. In the future, we will continue to focus on the research and development of new products, bringing consumers more product choices and a more pleasant experience.
