1 The cleanest skin going
by Bernice Peck
It’s bonny, a skin that look alive, brightly alive, under ,a gauze of
even without make-up. It’s old news now that much of what is pretty or unpretty
about a complexion has its origin far below the surface, the skin acting as a frank re
porter on internal order or strife. If everything’s tidy with your basic aparatus, then
don’t let externals swipe your skin’s freshness and clarity. Externals like dirt, dirt
that doesn’t always show but always damages. (If you had a dime for every skin
that goes to bed cleansed—but only half-clean—your income tax would be astron
l Dermatologists have said that probably half the lesser skin disorders they see
47 are the results of optimistic, vague cleansing methods, the kind that remove some
make-up and grime, leave behind just enough to clog those tiny exits, the pores.
And these pores after a while of clogging, are, alas, no longer tiny. Then a skifi’s color
and tone turn gloomy, it becomes more and more disposed to minor grievances, spot
: ting, blackheads, even infections. Its owner begins to think of hers, pitifully, as a
f problem skin, although she herself manufactured the problem.
Actually your skin, any skin, can be flawlessly clean without an arm-long row of
;' bottles and jars for doing daily business. It’s not how many preparations you use,
* It’s how consistently, how properly, you use three, two or even the one that does
the job. As for the one, it. soon might be something new called White Sable, some
; thing you’ll be seeing and hearing about all over a few weeks from now. Its maker,
: Revlon, have had both versions of White Sable in and out of their testing labora
i tories for lo these three years. Object of each return trip—to make it even better,
make it even do more, than the time before. Finally, they seem satisfied that each
• is wonderful for its particular purpose, and here, partially, is why:
It is a silky, milk-white balm that first cleanses, then softens, then protects perfect
; ly any type of skin. Its combination of elements makes it gentler even than neces
sary for the dry, baby-thin skin, effectual enough for the oiliest. And it functions
. as perfectly for any skin on the in-between list; the normal, the easily disturbed, the
v undecided (that irritating combination of dry-and-oily areas.) Every possible factor
has been considered, from skin personality and climatic conditions to the small but
sweet pleasures of actual use. White Sable goes on with a silky luxury, with a delight
ful fragrance. It take a moment to do its job. You can wipe it off with tissue or wash it
off with a cloth and cool water. What film remains is benign to any skin facing any
temperature. That’s one version of White Sable, its price, $1.50.* The other has all the
same wonderful qualities plus an entirely new idea for a cleaning preparation (the addi
tion of hormones to replenish the precious natural supply that birthdays can cost the,
skin.) This version, $2.25.* Either is an easy-going plastic-flasked traveler. Either is not j
only ready—but able—to make your skin clean as can be. And a completely, constantly
clean skin is only a few steps away from a beautiful complexion.
