If there’s one thing we’ve learned from revealing 2,000 years of anti-aging skin care secrets, it’s that women go to some extraordinary lengths for beautiful skin.
In ‘Stop the Madness’, we saw the following 12 cringe-worthy remedies used throughout history.
1. The Seaweed Mask (thank you, ancient Greece)
2. The Solid Gold Mask
3. The Milk and Honey Facial
4. The Bird Poo Facial (courtesy of 17th-century Japan)
5. The Licked Amethyst Face Rub
6. The Tin-Foil Mask
7. Radium Treatments
8. The Bee Venom Mask (ouch!)
9. The Baby Food Facial
11. The Oxygen Mask
12. The Kitty Litter Facial
It wasn’t easy to bring all of these wacky treatments to life, but thanks to a team of highly creative prop stylists and an extraordinarily patient model, we did.
Real milk and honey was used to depict this ancient Egyptian beauty regimen.
No bees were harmed in the making of this video. (And no humans were stung either.)
Authentic (and edible!) Korean seaweed was reconstituted in this shot.
Definitely FAKE. Just makeup and lights, people.
They’re only gummy leeches, but they still gave everyone on set a fright.
Confirmed, real baby food went flying through the air.
Real kitty litter. But fake kitty.
