To solve a beauty problem would you join a new drug clinical trial?

I’ll be totally honest: most of the press releases I get are boring crap about the newest flavor of lip balm or something equally banal.┬áBut occasionally I do see something that catches my eye. Case in point, this website from Healthline that allows you to search for clinical trials in your area for a specific medical condition.

What does this have to do with beauty science, you ask?

I played around with the search function a little bit and was surprised to find how many new drug trials are underway for medical conditions that would also solve beauty problems. For example, I found tests for scaly skin medication, anti-acne drugs, wart removal creams, even baldness cures. And some of those were even close to my home!

I’m not necessarily saying I’d sign up for one of these tests but if you have severe psoriasis or acne vulgaris, you might want to take a look. Here’s the link so you can check it out for yourself:
