Dangerous Beauty - 8 of the most disgusting things women have done to make themselves prettier

  • 10 months ago

I came across this article today and...yuck!

A few things women used to "enhance" their beauty through the ages:

1. Lead makeup
2. Arsenic wafers
3. Mercury for blemishes
4. Deadly nightshade to dilate pupils
5. Radioactive skin care
6. X-ray depilation
7. Lard for hair
8. Eyelash extensions sewn onto lids with needle and thread

It does make you wonder what future generations will think about the lengths WE go to for vanity in 2014.
