Fresh air, fresh water -and a fresh
viewpoint of life daily, should be the
rule of the woman who wishes' to
look her best at 40.
Oneof the greatest beauty destroy
ers of the well-to-do American wom
an is laziness. She always wants
someone else to do the work and let
her have the reward. Husband must
work' to keep her luxuriously. Ser
vants must, cook her food and keejj
her home in order. A Others, whom
she considers more unfortunate
women than herself, must ornament
and decorate her body with 'dainty
gauds and gowns.
She will spend the money freely
that she has. not earned for facial or
body massage when a brisk walk on
arainy day would be better. She will
buy expensive rubber underclothing
to melt the too solid flesh, when ?.
rattling game of tennis would not
only have the same effect, but give
her an added joy in living as well
Every woman, young or old, should
spend as much time in the open air
as possible each day.
Don't be afraid to walk in the rain.
Put on your oldest clothes and go out
and get wet It won't hurt you if as
soon as you return you give yourself
a good rub down and put on dry
There is no cosmetic known equal
to damp air. The fine complexion of
the English and Irish 'women can be
attributed to the dampness of the cli
mate of England and Ireland.
Few women drink enough 'water.
Eight glasses a day of cool not iced
water is about the right regime for t
the woman who would not have, a
sallow complexion and would be "fair
to look upon" at forty or over.
