Joan Crawford's Morning "Beauty Routine"

Did she have to do it every single morning??

And did it work?

It seems like an awful lot of trouble, scrubbing your face (raw) with soap, scraping your arms, elbows and fingernails with a rough brush, rinsing your face in scalding hot water, and then cooling it off with ice soaked in some undetermined liquid.

From the pictures of Joan's face, her beauty routine didn't seem to be THAT great.

And in the end, she aged like everyone else.

So what was the point, except for dramatic effect?

In my opinion, it was a huge waste of time, for so little benefit.

I think the liquid was Witch-hazel.

It wasn't really her beauty routine. The opening was meant to illustrate her sickness and obsession with "cleanliness".

Who scrubs their hands raw as part of a beauty routine?

I know shortly after the release Mommie Dearest, I tried pressing ice cubes to my face after pouring rubbing alcohol on them. I was 13 years old. Only tried it a few times and switched to drinking vodka on the rocks instead.

Still a beauty, to this day.

Point taken OP, but The Fountain of Youth is a perennial folly — 99% of the over the counter skin treatments, lotions and beauty regimens of this, or any other era, are useless garbage that only monetize human insecurity.

Also, most of the medical interventions and treatments don’t work past a certain point and just make things objectively worse.

Washing my face in cold water in the morning invigorates me.

I might try the ice method, but I’d need a maid to prepare it before dawn. I don’t see that in the future.

I assumed that was her routine when she was filming.

Try as she might Joan could never scrub off the stench of whore.
