I'm from the deep South, y'all. While I currently live in California, some of my southern mannerisms and ideals followed me to the West Coast. That means I sometimes pronounce words a little funny. It also means my skin looks as radiant as Miss Alabama's, thanks to my mom and grandma's (aka Grandma Clink Clink) beauty rituals.
The women on my mom's side are known for having really youthful, delicate skin because each generation continues to stick to pretty rigorous beauty routine. In spirit of Mother's Day, I thought I'd share these pearls of wisdom. But I'll admit to you gals now: Some of these beauty secrets are weird, smelly and perhaps best left in the past. But no pain (or funky odor), no gain, right?
