The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery conducted a survey of approximately 500 women between the ages of 45 to 60 to find out what they think about the changing face of 50.

FDA investigating cosmetic problems
It's the job of the Food and Drug Administration to investigate problems with cosmetics, whether it's contamination, mislabeling or dangerous ingredients. But a lot of bad products make it into the U.S. and into consumer's hands, before the FDA is alerted. Women spend millions every year on cosmetics from anti-aging serums to moisturizers and makeup.
