Abstract: 

Background and Aim: High consumption of cosmetic products may result in several health problems. Cosmetics use among Iranian girls and women is common, so identifying factors affecting cosmetic use seems necessary. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and reasons for cosmetic products use among female university students.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out on 540 female university students of Hamedan universities, which were recruited according to a random sampling method. The data gathering tool was a self-reporting questionnaire.
Results: Lipstick (62.2%), mascara (50.9%) and liner (43.3%), were the most commonly used products among students.
Feeling beautiful and improved self-confidence were the most common reasons for using cosmetic products.
Conclusion: Considering the findings of this study, it seems that providing educational programs for promotion of self-esteem can be beneficial for preventing unnecessary cosmetic use.
