Ep. 11 Beauty & Poison: Not Your Typical Beauty Standards Talk
Imagine smearing white lead poison on your skin and lips as a way to be more beautiful. Sound crazy? Well this was an actual practice in the ancient world and is not that far off from what we do to ourselves today, in many ways. Welcome back for seasons 2 of From Skirts To Scrubs! We’re starting off our second season by talking about beauty standards of the past and present, covering Ancient Egyptian makeup, foot binding practices of the Chinese Han dynasty, supermodel vibes of the ‘80s and more! We also take some time to explore the impact that beauty and beauty products have on our physical and mental health as women living in a modern world. Tune in with us to kick off 2021 together!
