Piiyples Are Impurities Seeking
an Outlet Through Skin
' Pores. V
Pimples, sores and boils usually
result from toxins, poisons and
impurities which, are generated
in the bowels and then absorbed
into the blood through the very
ducts which should absorb only
nourishment to sustain the body.
It is the function of the kid
neys to filter impurities from the
blood and cast: them out In the
form' of urine, but in many in
stances the bowels create more
toxins and Impurities than the
kidneys can eliminate; , then the
blood uses the skin iores as the
next best means of getting rid of
these impurities, which often
break out air over the skin in the
form of pimples, j -
The surest way to clear the skin
of these eruptions, says a noted
authority, is to get from any
pharmacy about four ounces of
Jad Salts and take a tablespoon-
ful In a glass of water each morn
ing before breakfast for one week.
This will help prevent the-formation
of toxins in the bowels. It
also stimulates the kidneys, thus
coaxing them fb filter the blood
of impurities j and clearing the
skin" of. pimples. ' .:- ' ,
Jad Salts is inexpensive, and la
