Why Endure Pimples
If yo? wish a skin clear of
pimples, blackheads and
other annoying eruptious,
begin today the regular use
of Cuticura Soap assisted by
Cuticura Ointment. No
other method is so agreeable,
so often effective and so eco?
TREATMENT: ? Gently
smear the affected parts with
Cuticura Ointment, on the
end of the finger, but do not
rub. Wash off the Curicura
Ointment in five minutes
with Cuticura Soap and hot
water and continue bathing
for some minutes. This |
treatment is best on rising
and retiring. At other times
use Cuticura Soap freely for
the toilet and bath, to assist
in preventing inflammation,
irritation and clogging of the
pores, the common cause of
these distressing facial erup?
tions and othemnwholesome
