NORMAL, GOOD SKIN \

So Even If Your Nose Gets Shiny, Says Miss
Huddleston, It Isn’t Necessary to Start
Drastic Oily Skin Treatments.
By JOSEPHINE HUDDLESTON.
*<llf Y SKIN w so oily," is the plaint of so many of my
J[ readers that 1 am inclined to think that some of them
are being misled by the natural shine of a normal,
healthy skin. It is wise to make certain, before starting corrective
treatment, that yonr skin is excessively ally, for
there is always danger of creating • condrion
just as troublesome—a dry skin.
A normal amount of oil is essential to all
skin beauty for it gives the skin Its plasticity
and softness. So. fust because your nose gets
a bit shiny now and then, don’t rush out and
buy a lot of preparations to correct an oily skin
As we grow older the natural supply of oil
is gradually lessened so once again we find the
shine beneficial because it attests to oar youth.
The first indication that too much oil is
flooding the surface of the skin * when a
greasy appearance becomes apparent. After
that comes the gradual enlarging of the pores,
followed by blackheads and in many cases

Greasy rood ana sweets encourages

Personally. 1 don't believe in the,

length of time. But for a week or
two, until the surplus oils In the!

to avoid heavy gravies, rich pud- j

foods again, do so moderately.
