Today in factoids: some of Hollywood's most famous faces used to shave. Female faces, we mean.

Style.com talked to aesthetician to the stars Kate Somerville who named names:

On good authority (that being Elizabeth Taylor's personal cosmetic dermatologist, whom Somerville used to assist), the greats (those being Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe) shaved their faces for completely bare skin and an added dose of exfoliation.

And for those of you who want to try this at home, Somerville also says that "it's a total myth" that hairs will grown in darker and thicker. The more you know!
