Hysterical beauty products your mom used
Throughout the ages, women have put themselves through hell in the pursuit of beauty. From vibrating "fat-melting" belts to liquid pantyhose, the beauty market has always found new and inventive ways to capitalize on our obsession with looking good. Even today, some of our more common beauty practices seem downright strange when you think about them objectively — we have doctors slice into us to remove fat, change the structure of our faces, or put plastic bags filled with liquid into our chests. We inject poison into our faces to combat wrinkles. Will the women of 2116 look back at us and wonder, "What in the world were they thinking?!" Maybe, or maybe not. At any rate — even though it's a bit hypocritical — we can still learn (and laugh) at some of the beauty products used by our mothers, grandmothers, and other women throughout history.
