A yountf girl of 20 writes me anxiously
for advice about her complexion. For
years It has been her custom to apply
cold cream and lc powder to her face
before going out and at night to put on
more cream and then wash her face with
tepid water and soap. Now her skin Is
rough and the pores are very large, she

I should think they would be. With
such treatment her skin has not been

a long time are known as enlarged pore
and are almost equally disfiguring. Both
conditions require dally friction and a
ptrfect cleansing of the skin.
This can only bo done satisfactorily by
means of a scrubbing brush, good soap
and hot water not tepid but really hot
Face scrubbing brushes are becoming
very popular and are sold everywhere.
The face brush should not be too hard
and should be soaked lit hot water before
using. Don't be too vigorous In using It
t first, and never use a brush over the
face when there Is an open- sore or an
eruption of the skin. L'se a pure soap
and plenty of It.
Many of the Inexpensive soaps on t lie
market are excellent. Make a good lather
on the brush and scrub away. It is the
friction as well as the o.ip and water
which Is so beneficial to the skin. After
wurds rinse off the face carefully IU
several warm waters, then In told water
snd flry It thoroughly, When the face
la sensitive apply a good cream after
washing It. But ome a day, and pre
ferably at night, the porvs must be
cleaned thoroughly. As few of us have a
