We do a lot of wacky stuff to our faces in the name of beauty, and the women of Ladylike were wondering: would we have a better beauty experience if we just went back to basics? So we decided to try out some skin care tips from the 1950s:
First, we used cold cream to remove our makeup, for which we had very mixed results.
Chantel SWEARS by cold cream for makeup removal, while Kristin pointed out that even after using the cold cream, there was A LOT of foundation left on our makeup wipes. So, was it moisturizing? Yes. But it was no match against liquid foundations + setting spray.
Next, we tried steaming our faces over a basin of hot water (to open our pores), a technique supposedly used by Audrey Hepburn.
Everybody thought this was super refreshing, but definitely too intense to do more than once a week. Devin and Kristin were much redder for a second afterwards, but that faded.
