We all have our favorite trends of the past, like a flapper girl look or glamorous pin curls, but vintage beauty isn't just about the bold looks our favorite Hollywood starlets rocked in the movies.
It just goes to show that some beauty tips are truly timeless! No heat curls - While curling irons have been around for quite some time now, many women got a strong curl by wrapping sections of damp hair in thin strips of fabric, twisting it into rolls, and tying the fabric. They'd then sleep on the rolls for a natural looking, no damage curl in the morning.
Lemon acne cure - Lemon juice has long been touted as remedy for acne and acne scars. Some opt for lemon juice alone and others mix it with Witch Hazel, apply to the skin for 5-10 minutes, and rinse off with cold water. If this is the go-to, bear in mind that lemon increases sun sensitivity and may dry out skin, so use sparingly.
Charcoal as teeth whitener - As gross as this looks, beauty gurus everywhere are bringing back activated charcoal, another trend from the past. This ingredient is said to draw out impurities when utilized as a facemask or brushed on as a tooth whitener.
