To Quickly Gain
a New Complexion
(American Family Journal.)
The quickest way to get rid of a bad
complexion is by the use of ordinary
mercolizcd wax, procurable at any drug
store. Just spread the wax over your
face at night in the same manner you
would use cold cream, and the beautify?
ing work begin? at once. ? Next morning,
when yon wash this off, tiny particles of
the old, worn-out akin are taken off with
it. The following day more of the dead
surface skin comes off, and so on until
soon you have entirely discarded the faded,
sallow, blotchy or muddy complexion.
The fresh, bright, heajthy-hued skin
underneath furnishes your new complex?
ion. No process has yet been discovered
that will give a woman such a rarely
beautiful and youthful skin. .Marks ?f
age, weather, worry and disease which
mar the skin, of course disappear with
the skin itself.
