I've got a fun new romantic era inspired video for today. No, not that kind of romance! It's just about roses.
Trev and I are on a bit of a rose kick lately. He wants more rosebushes at the house and I want more roses in any form I can get it. All the Anne of Green Gables + rose talk last week got me thinking about the Victorian era, which was quite fancy for the wealthier folks, and is one time period I associate with lots and lots of fluttery roses.
Not that long ago we didn't have any of the chemical-laden hygiene products and beauty potions we do now. It was a simpler time. Depending on what you could afford you chose a natural approach...
For example, Queen Elizabeth the First famously used white lead powder to whiten her skin, and nightshade plant to make the pupils of her eyes look larger, both of which were poisonous and in large quantities could be fatal.
However, by the time Queen Victoria hopped into the crown, poison was out and natural was in.
Ladies of the era cleansed their skin, as did some people of the ancient world, with rosewater and mixed beauty masks made of oatmeal, honey, and egg whites to brighten the skin.
In this new video I'm reminiscing about sweet Anne, her pinched-rosy cheeks and letting you in on my tried and true plan for "less is more" healthy skin.
It's perfect for you if you're interested in:
I speak from experience and I've come a long, long way. Have a watch.
