You gotta think back in the day the fifties housewives took care of the house and didn't have spas and such so they did all of that as a way to pamper themselves.

I like how they said it was rigorous and so much work. Guess they've never heard of Korean 10-step beauty routines. lol

Arianna Sings Songs says:

It just goes to show you that the old way is still some of the best ways. And young people need to get over themselves

I hate the people in the video lack of consideration towards the 50’s. Of course, they didn’t know any better, it’s like saying “I can’t believe they used a dictionary, just use google”
