TODAY'S BEAUTY HELPS
Nothing excites more criticism than
a woman with her face all daubed
with face powder in her desire to hide
a faulty or an aging skin. Instead
of using powder, which clogs and
enlarges the pores, it Is far better to
use a good face lotion that will Im
prove and permanently benefit- the
skin. By dissolving four ounces of
spur max in a half pint of hot water
tou can make an inexpensive lotion
that will do wonders as a skin whlt
ner and complexion beautlfler. It
removes all shlnlness, B&llowness
and roughness, and gives the skin a
smooth velvety tone, while it does
not rub off easily like powder, nor
does it show on the ekln.
By washing the hair with a tea
spoonful of canthrox dissolved in a
cup of hot water, afterward rinsing
thoroughly with clear water, one
finds that it dries quickly and evenly.
Is unstreaked, bright, soft and very
fluffy, so fluffy, In fact, that it looks
more abundant than It la and so soft
that arranging It becomes a pleasure.
This simple, Inexpensive shampoo
"cleanses the hair and scalp thorough
