An arsenic fact

Thursday, July 25, 2013



Englishwomen would achieve beauty by eating arsenic!! The deadly poison – used in the 19th century – gave the skin an interesting glow, although the side effect was that it shortened their life span.


Scary stuff!

  1. I don't know that I could slowly kill myself for glowing skin, what if you accidentally took to much?

  2. Creepy but interesting fact. They did a lot of weird beauty things back then. In the middle ages, girls used to drain their own blood to be paler, as it was considered to be more beautiful. Almost as bad as eating arsenic!
