PIONEER BEAUTY SECRETS: "old and new cosmetics from the kitchen" plus "garden and insect control". by Ferne Shelton.
Early beauty aids in America were made in settlements and frontier kitchens using herbs, honey, juices, vinegar, or other supplies on hand. Some came down from grandmothers; others came from new experiments. Before 1900 few commercially mixed cosmetics were available to the public but kitchen supplies were always plentiful enough to spare for the magic of beauty. As time passed store-bought items were added to improve older mixtures such as glycerine, oils, etc. and later ready-to-use products became widely available However some of the earlier grooming aids are still enjoyed for various reasons--surprisingly simple mixtures. Today's woman can wisely choose the best of old and new. Try Kitchen Wrinkle Cream, Herbal Tonic Bath, Tonic for Red Noses, Calamity Cream, Mary's Foot Cream, and many more. Drawings, 24 pages.
