In the 1940s There Were Classes Dedicated to Face Washing

Face-washing hasn't always been the suds and water routine it is today and women decades ago apparently took it so seriously that there were entire classes devoted to it — no joke. This informational video (clearly sponsored by Pond's) seeks to teach impressionable young women of the 1940s how to wash properly and explains that it's a process so important that many women's colleges have a whole class dedicated to the subject. It's interesting to see how much the standard cleansing routine has changed in the last seven decades. Although if you have dry, sensitive skin, this probably isn't a bad regimen to follow. Check out the vintage video now!
