INSIDER:12 old-school beauty tricks that still work today

A light tease in the morning could prevent an oily scalp.


Ratay shared a tip for preventing oily build-up at the scalp. “After you finish blow-drying your hair, do a very light tease at the foundation to keep the hair off of the scalp area. This will keep any of the oil that is accumulated over a period of time off of the hair shaft.”

Vaseline can be a savior for dry lips.

“My old school beauty tip for everyone across the board is to use Vaseline morning and night on your lips,” said Sherry Ratay, celebrity colorist. “This will keep your lips soft, for the eyes and the touch. Nothing’s worse than having lips that look dry as well as kissing or receiving a kiss from someone that has dry lips.”
