London - A book originally published in the Victorian era and republished for a modern audience today has shed light on the tricks of the Victorian beauty trade.

‘Beauty, What It Is and How to Retain It’ by A Lady, which was originally published in 1873 and has been re-released by The British Library divulges beauty secrets and tips like how to make own hair tonics and face masks using products such as lard and beef marrow, the Daily Mail reported.

The practical guide also explains the value of brushing hair for a lengthy 20 minutes both night and day, and advises women to use a soft badger-hair brush to clean their teeth.

Much of the advice still holds relevance, like the comment that “perfect cleanliness is essential to the preservation of the teeth.”

There is also a guide for men, ‘The Gentleman’s Art of Dressing, With Economy,’ written by ‘A Lounger at the Clubs’ in 1876.

The quirky guide offers advice to men on dealing with a wet top hat and emphasises the importance of not wearing the same trousers two days in a row.
