When a woman’s throat begins
to show a drooping, weary look, it
is a sign of birthdays piling up.
But it isn’t a cue for her to take up
knitting and prepare lor a lonely
spinsterhood. It merely shows that
it is time to get out the massage
creams and get in some brisk tap
ping and slapping to bring the re
laxed muscles back to normal.
If throat muscles are already
sagging to a marked degree, the
rejuvenation, my dears, won’t be
completed in a week, nor even a
few weeks, but that shouldn’t be
discouraging if finally muscles
perk up and wrinkles disappear!
Even after the throat line is firm
again, daily care will be necessary
or the old droop will return in one
half the time it took to remove it.
And that would be a tragedy for
even the most optimistic beauty
As a beginner, take your favorite
cleansing cream and get rid of that
pesky accumulation of surface
grim on neck and face. (Begin
every beauty treatment with this
prematory cleaning.) Then for
some warm, not hot, water and a
good, soapy scrubbing. Rinse with
warm water. Now dry face and
neck with soft pats of the towel.
Soft, because muscles which are
already drooping won’t stand
rough treatment.
Now, with hands cupped around
the throat, let one hand follow the
other from chin down to collar
bone and then up again. Tap the
flesh briskly. Turn the head from
one side to the other hard enough
to exercise tfiose relaxed muscles.
Then wring a towel out of cold
water and apply it to neck and
throat. A cold water dousing in the
morning, followed by a good
astringent, completes the treat
ment. But remember, this is no
overnight miracle treatment!
For the smart young things who
want to look very, very collegiate,
nothing will turn the trick like a
smart sweater and skirt outfit. The
college shops of the stores are
showing some of the trimmest
sweaters and skirts! Whether or
not you intend to trod a campus
this fall, you will certainly want at
least one of these outfits. For sheer
smartness, inexpense, and practica
bility, they can’t be topped!
The new fall hosiery shades are
more stunning this year than they
have ever been! A hint of blue to
match the dark blue shades which
will continue in popularity. An elu
