Clears Away Pimples
There la one remedy that seldom fails
to clear away all pimples, blackheads
and skin eruptions and that makes the
skin soft, clear and healthy.
Any druggist can supply you with
zemo, which generally overcomes all
skin diseases. Acne, eczema, itch, pim
ples, rashes, blackheads in most cases
give way to zemo. Frequently, minor
blemishes disappear overnight. Itch
ing usually stops instantly. Zemo is
safe, clean, easy to use and depend
able. It costs only 25c; an extra large
bottle. $1.00. It will not stain, is not
greasy or sticky and is positively safe
for tender, sensitive skins.
