There are so many old-school Latinx traditions that we carry from generation to generation, whether or not they work or are true at all. Growing up, you probably heard your Latina mom or abuela tell you not to go outside with wet hair because you’d catch a cold or to use Vivaporú to cure all of mankind’s ailments. We’ve heard these suggestions so much they’ve practically become instilled in our culture. But, it’s only natural for our generation (and younger ones) to want to challenge and verify if these remedies or life hacks are for real or not.
So we did some digging and found some old school beauty hacks that were used in Latin American countries way back when, that really work, and are still being used today. Added bonus? A lot of these are inexpensive, easy to use, and feature natural ingredients.
