We watch MTV's Jersey Shore as amateur anthropologists, posing important questions about culture and language-and pontificating on how much like a burnt-sienna crayon a man can become if he has a tanning bed in his residence.
The beauty habits of the Shore housemates can seem a bit shocking to an outsider: Snookie wears full makeup to the gym; Paulie spends 25 minutes on his hair ("and it comes out perfect every single time); and 23-year-old JWoww had her cellulite and stretch marks lasered off before taping the show.
But we'll cop to having our own weird beauty tics: Like plucking our eyebrows...nightly. (No, we don't over-pluck. It's just that you catch things one night that you didn't see the night before. A quick scan for strays before bed prevents an accidental unibrow the next day.) Sigh. It felt good to get that off our chest. Do you have something to share, readers? What's your most outrageous beauty habit?
