Hollywood icons Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor used a common grooming tool to battle unwanted facial hair: a razor.

Aesthetician Kate Somerville tells Style.com that the stars shaved their faces in order to obtain completely bare skin with the added bonus of exfoliation.

Somerville says the actresses shaved regularly and did not subscribe to the common myth that extraneous hair would come in darker and thicker.

Sommerville recommends Gillette's Mach 3 for those ladies willing to follow in the footsteps of two of Tinseltown's most famed faces.
