The woman whose face has a bloated appearance at times, particularly upon arising, as well as she whose face is per? manently overflcshy or flabby, should use the saxolitc solution. This is made by dissolving 1 oz. powdered saxolite in XA I pint witch hazel, inexpensive ingredients which any druggist can supply. Use as .i wash lotion. There is nothing betler to reduce the face to a normal condition. The loose skin shrinks, bagginess and wrinkles arc ironed out. Not only does I the effect quicklv show in one's improved | appearance, but there is also a com- j fortablc feeling of firmness and smugness. This treatment is far superior to mas? sage. The latter, as a matter of fact, can afford but temporary relief, and its continuance tends to break down the i muscular tissue and aggravate the trouble.
