See How Different Skin Care Was in the 1930s

Lovely Old Hollywood star Constance Bennett (you may know her from Topper, Moulin Rouge, and It Should Happen to You) teamed up with director Hal Roach, the man behind iconic comedy duo Laurel & Hardy, for this 1937 educational film shot in gorgeous and expensive Cinecolor. It's fascinating to see what the makeup and hair of the era really looked like, and even more interesting to see how relatively straightforward the skin care was — no serums, no scrubs, just a waterless cleanser and a mask you leave on as long as you can. Even the makeup is pretty simple (although it does make us wish rouge was still the norm). And her tips aren't bad, either.
