Women will spend 72 days of their lifetime doing this one task


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s a well-worn comedic observation: women just take forever in the bathroom, getting ready.

Maybe that explains why we always see women driving down the highway in morning commuter traffic, still putting on their makeup with their hair in rollers, if only to save themselves an extra 10-15 minutes of sleep.

Why do their beauty regime at home in front of a mirror when you can do the same thing driving at 75 MPH while weaving in and out of traffic?

At what age do men look their best?


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that people get better looking as they get older.

More specifically, men get “more distinguished” as they age, and women get more… well, old.

It’s an unfair comparison, but life can be cruel.

And mean.

And hurtful.

And truthful.

They say that women look best when they just awake in the morning, all tussled and rubbing that sleepy eye crud off their faces.

But fantasy women? That’s a different story.

10 Toxic products you should avoid


By web gangsta | Published:

Do you read product labels when you’re making household purchases?  Web Watch does try to avoid buying food that contains high fructose corn syrup or has “sugar” listed on the label — but we’re a creature of habit, and Pop Tarts taste so darn good.

But we don’t really take the time to read all those other funky labels and warnings that seem to be applied to practically everything we get nowadays.  Do we care that something was made in a plant that also processes “soy”, “nuts”, and “dairy products”?  Eh.  Not so much… but we know some folks who do care, so we’re not going to make fun of them for this.

Web Watch has talked about how much trouble that cosmetics can get you into, but that’s not going to stop women and men from buying beauty products on a regular basis.

But some people end up buying more than they need (hello, Costco and Sam’s Club shoppers! We’re looking at you!  And those Extreme Couponers with their hoard). Continue reading SHOPPING TIP: BEAUTY PRODUCTS AND COSMETICS HAVE EXPIRATION DATES

Web Watch has said it before, about how beauty shops and cosmetics are trying to kill you:

Okay, you can’t actually die from having herpes.  Well, maybe die from embarassment… but that’s a completely different subject for a different day.

Let’s cut right to the chase: there are plenty of chemicals that are are part of various cosmetics and beauty products that you may not be aware are in there.  Here’s a list of the MOST UNWANTED INGREDIENTS IN PERSONAL CARE/BEAUTY PRODUCTS: Continue reading MORE PROOF THAT THE COSMETICS/BEAUTY INDUSTRY IS TRYING TO KILL YOU

Did you know that September 20th through September 27th was NO MAKE-UP WEEK?

That’s right – for these seven days, women around the world are purposefully going out of the house without blush, base, mascara, lipstick, eyeshadow, and other beauty products in order to prove a point:  that women prefer other women to wear makeup.  (This comes from a study that claims that 80% of women prefer that their female co-workers wear some sort of cosmetics over women who didn’t wear any.)

After yesterday’s WEB WATCH post about the percentage of herpes infections in the US, we received a few questions about one of the CDC’s survey results that stated that more women than men suffered from herpes.

The question?  “Why?”

While we know some men can be sleeping around with more than one partner, that certainly doesn’t mean that men are the sole means that the herpes virus can get spread around.

Leave it to more scientific studies to help Web Watch out when we need to know more about herpes in just a few days than we ever thought was reasonable.

HOW MANY DIFFERENT CHEMICALS DO WOMEN PUT ON THEIR FACES EVERY DAY?

A UK company, Bionsen, determined that the average woman puts 515 different chemicals on her face every day, using a combination of makeup, perfumes, mascara, and other products.

The average woman uses 13 different products daily, and each product contains at least 20 different ingredients — lipsticks and other makeup average 30 ingredients, and some perfumes can have as many as 400 different ingredients.

It gets scarier from there.  You pay attention to the labels on food you eat, but have you paid attention to the ingredient list on your personal grooming products… if those products even contain ingredient lists in the first place?
