If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Avon’s latest video revealing 2,000 years of anti-aging skin care secrets, it’s that women go to some extraordinary lengths for beautiful skin.

In “Stop the Madness”, we saw the following 12 cringe-worthy remedies used throughout history.

  1. The Seaweed Mask (thank you, ancient Greece)
  2. The Solid Gold Mask
  3. The Milk and Honey Facial
  4. The Bird Poo Facial (courtesy of 17th-century Japan)
  5. The Licked Amethyst Face Rub
  6. The Tin-Foil Mask
  7. Radium Treatments
  8. The Bee Venom Mask (ouch!)
  9. The Baby Food Facial
  10. Leeches!
  11. The Oxygen Mask
  12. The Kitty Litter Facial

It wasn’t easy to bring all of these wacky treatments to life, but thanks to a team of highly creative prop stylists and an extraordinarily patient model, we did. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of the shoot and if you’d like to Start ANEW (and put those baby food facials to rest for good).
