Another fun fact, skincare goes as far back as 1500, with sandpaper being used to exfoliate their skin! Horrendous? Yes, but it just goes to show the extents of what people will do to achieve perfect skin and avoid the dreaded “chastity pimples”. That’s what Acne was most commonly referred to in the 1930’s (a pretty apt name ‘til today if you ask me).

Check out this thoroughly entertaining timeline, detailing the innovations in skin care from sandpaper ‘til the latest “blue light” portable device that zaps acne on the go from Tanda. Enjoy!
