Sure, we're a long way from having totally natural, chemical-free beauty routines (and yes, we're still guilty of hitting the bleach every few months for highlights) — but, when it comes to flat-out dangerous beauty treatments, we've come a long way, according to one writer over at The Gloss.
Among the ranks of shifty vintage beauty treatments? DIY mascaras made of Vaseline and coal dust, sleeping with a full head of steel rollers, and — gross — paraffin wax as facial fillers. As much as we love throwback beauty looks, this list makes us grateful that we live in a day when less-toxic beauty treatments are available. Girdles? No thanks. (The Gloss)
