The infamous corset, which can be fun for certain events…once in a blue moon, but not daily! No thank you!!

Absurd!

Throughout the ages, women have experimented with beauty treatments to enhance natural features, slow the aging process, and care for the outer body. Beginning in the Ancient era, the Biblical account of Queen Esther’s life mentions the elaborate spa-type treatments that young women underwent for an entire 12-month period to prepare themselves for a reception with the King. The first six months involved treatments with oil and myrrh, and the second with perfumes and cosmetics!

With modern day waxing, working out, plucking, puckering, pouting, pinching, and fidgeting, most women will always be slaves to the latest and greatest to stay young a beautiful forever.  Good luck gals!!
