MAKES THE COMPLEXION SOFT AND VELVETY "My first advice to any woman seek ing a charming complexion is to taboo the powder box," says Mac Martyn, a noted authority on beauty culture. Powder clogs up the pores, enlarges' them, making coarse, muddy, blotchy complexions. "The very best complexion bcauti ficr I have ever used—and it is far su perior to powder-^is a simple, inex pensive lotion made by dissolving 4 ounces of spurmax in one-half pint hot water, then adding two teaspoon fuls glycerine. This lotion does not show on the skin nor will it rub off easily as powder does. It makes the skin soft and veivety, leaving it clear. and youthful looking. "No other preparation has so far been discovered to equal this lotion for correcting a shiny, oily, sallow. complexion. Every woman should, have a bottle of this wonderful lotion : on her dressing table."
