FEW WOMENHAVE PERFECT SHOULDERS, SAYS BEAUTYiX
Not one woman in 20, I regret
to say, is so fortunate as to own
shoulders that require no beauti
fying. There is always some de
fect that needs to be remedied.
There are two types of shoul
ders, either of them bewitchingly
pretty. One is the shoulder of the
woman past 25 which, it is uni
versally conceded, should be full
and white, with a satiny skin.
The second type is called the
girlish shoulder, because it is sel
dom seen after the twenty-fifth
year is reached. It is sparingly
covered with flesh, yet not a bone
shows. In shape and color this
shoulder is perfect.
Every woman should have
satin smooth shoulders, as rough
skinned shoulders are abnormal.
Bear well in mind, iladi, that your
shoulders will not be smooth as
the petals of a rose unless they'
are given a thorough scrubbing
night and morning with a com
plexion brush and quantities of
hot, lathery water.
After you know that the skin
is clean as clean can be, sp'ray the
shoulders well with scented, very
cold water. This will prove stim
ulating to the skin and help to
make it soft and smoth.
This beautifying J treatment
cannot be considered complete
until a rough towel is see-sawed
across the back and chest until
every bit of moisture has been ab
sorbed. Yellow shoulders are abnormal,
so we must contrive some way of
banishing the saffron tints. What
saylfyou tp this simple bleach? -It
is harmless, easily applied to the, skin,
and, best of all, does sovereign work.
Pour three heaping tablespoonfuls o
baking soda into a basin of hot watei
and lave vour shoulders in this odc
wash, rubbing: it well into the- poreb
the skin. -
After the bath is completed, rub inja;
hberal quantity of whitening cream.
Cucumber juice. .2 ounces
White, wax 1 ounce

Almond oil. .'. . 4 ounces
Results will come soon
if you repeat treatment

or two. , . !
Employ massage if your shoulders:
are noticeably bony. Straightway buy

warming it, rub it gently over the,shoul- j
