Ever seen a beauty ad and gone “Whaaaaaaaat…?” As the newly minted editor of this Beauty Times, just flipping through the lifestyle mags for inspiration have elicited cries of “You’ve gotta be kidding me!” to “ARE YOU SERIOUS???” to other unprintable variants. So for our virgin voyage into all things beautiful, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to exploring the evolving doors of WTF moments in the history of the Beauty industry. Be warn, it’s not gonna be pretty…
Love of Beauty is TASTE… the Creation of Beauty is ART
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
During the Elizabethan era in Europe, beauty was defined by pale, fair skin. And with little science behind early skin care, Queen Elizabeth and other members of the upper class used a poisonous mixture of white lead and vinegar, and some even draw their own blood to achieve that faint colour!
The introduction of raw meat facials and RADIUM-infused masks that were radioactive (gasps!) promised users healthy, glowing skin.
Beauty salons flourished during this period with a focus on anti-ageing treatments through the use of the glamour bonnet and other helmet-like structures.
Diamond microdermabrasion were the go-to treatments to achieve soft, dewy skin. Oxygen facials were the rage with Madonna swearing by these oxygen infusion treatments to improve circulation and anti-oxidative power.
