Believe it or not, the Ancient Romans swore by urine. You heard that right. Both men and women quite often used urine as a facial mask ingredient. Urine was also used to keep teeth white and bright.
Another quite nasty skin care product used by the Ancient Romans was gladiator sweat. Gladiator sweat along with animal fats from the beasts that were killed was often collected before being sold at the markets or in the arenas. It was believed that sweat and animal fat helped give complexions a healthy glow.
Everyone knows how dangerous lead is especially when it comes to makeup. However, during the Elizabethan times, Queen Elizabeth herself slathered her face with what was called the, “Mask of Youth.” Applied to give women and men a pale and light complexion, the main ingredient in the makeup was toxic white lead, which truly was pure poison.
During the Victorian Era, women and men were obsessed with devices that could instantly give them beautiful skin. One of the more popular devices was Madam Rowley’s Toilet Mask that claimed to remove wrinkles and remove age spots.
