Elizabethan Skin...

I thought that this image was a fantastic way to portray just how damaged and unhealthy the Elizabethan women's skin truly was. So much so that in some cases they actually died! With all the chemicals and poisons they were lacing on to their skin, it was no wonder that they would end up looking extremely haggard and ill way before their time. Back in the Elizabethan era they didn't have the knowledge and understanding that we do in the 21st century. Therefore they were almost clueless as to how damaging what they were putting on to their faces really was. The above image portrays this beautifully and I think who ever created the image has done a wonderful job.
