Keep Young and Beautiful—
j If You Want to Be Loved
In our last week’s article we
told you if you have blackheads
your face is dirty! No one likes
to be called dirty face. In this
article we are going to help you
get rid of blackheads.
Whatever cleansing method you
may have been using in the past,
if It has not rid your face of
blackheads, then the method is all
There are still a few women
who cling to the old soap and wa
ter method of cleansing the face.
These women are the women who,
at an early age show wrinkles.
Soap has a tendency to dry up the
natural oils in the skin. If you
feel that you must use soap to
properly cleanse your face—well
do so. But use it sparingly, once
or twice a week, followed first,
by a good warm water rinse
(never hot water) then a cold
water rinse, always apply cream,
to the face after using soap.
Soap, however, removes only
the surface dirt. To properly
cleanse the face you should use a
good face cream. A face cream
that is penetrating and healing,
one that smooths on easily, that
does not have to be rubbed in and
that melts the instant it touches
Beware of creams that must be
massage d into the skin. Too much
massaging breaks down the fine
delicate tissues and causes the
muscles of the face to -sag.
A good cream cleans the pores
to the bottom so that they can
breathe the fresh air which stimu- I
l.it.r the circulation and keeps
the skin alive and radiant.
We have such a cream. It is
(■ ’led th neach Bud ClcanHr.tr
Cream. With this cream you need
no astring ni to close the pores,
neither do you need a vanishing
cream or powder base. You will
find that the powder clings per
fectly to your face.

would be no discrimination of

It will cost the conference an
