How to Remove a
'(From London Fashions)
Cosmetics can toever really help a
poor complexion; often they are posi
tively harmful. The sensible thing Is
to actually remove the thin veil of
stifling, half-dead scarf skin and give
the fresh, vigorous, beautiful young
skin underneath a chance to show Itself
and to breathe. '
This is best done by merely apply
ing roercolized wax at night, like cold
cream, washing It off in the morning.
The wax can be obtained from any
well stocked druggist. It absorbs the
disfiguring cuticle gradually, harmless
ly, leaving a brilliant natural complex
Ion. Of course this also takes, with it
all such blemishes as red blotches,
moth patches, liver spots, blackheads,
pimples, etc. As a freckle remover
and general complexion beautifier this
old-fashioned remedy Is unequaled.
