HYGIENE OF BEAUTY.
PRESCRIPTIONS FOR MAKING FEMI
NINE LOVELINESS PERENNIAL.
Keeping the Skin In Good Condition—Vir
tues of the Bath—Black Pimples on
Next to regularity of features, human
beauty largely consists in a flue complexion,
to havo which it is necessary that the skin
should bo kept in good condition. According
to Ovid, paleHotis was essential to female
beauty in old Rome. Modern theorists of
beauty prefer color in the face, which is cer
tainly suggestive of health. To keep the skin
in good order, cleanliness is the first requisite.
Between the Russian peasant, who never
bathes, and the neat American, who bathes
every day, there are many gradations, such
as the Englishman who bathes often, the
Frenchman, not of the highest classes, who
bathes occasionally, and the people of other
European nations with whom the practice is
intermittent. In this connection it may not
seem impertinent to quote from a work on
the hygiene of beauty, published quite re
cently in Paris. Therein we read, after vari
ous directions for washing the face at least
twice a day, the following remarkable ad
vice, which is translated literally:
Every week, or at least every fifteen days,
hygiene presents a general bath for cleansing
the person—a bath of tepid water from 28 to
32 degs. centigrade. The bath universally
recognized by legislators is indespensable as
a means to health. “I would abandon medi
cine,” wrote Percy very justly, “if I were in
terdicted in use of the bath.”
A bath once iu fifteen days would hardly
satisfy the conscience of a neat American nor
prove perfectly agreeable to his associates.
No American ever thinks of bathing without
soap. The French often do so, because only
a small minority of the people are able to
have a bath tub at home, and at the public
baths soap is an extra charge. Tho soap used
in bathing should not bo too alkaline,
though, sinco tho skin of the body is soon
after supplied with an oily fluid by means of
the pores, this is a question of less import
ance. If something should bo added to the
bath to make it more efficient the question
is, what shall it be? In this matter the ex
perience of tho French will I ms found valu
able. If tho skiu is inclined to eruptions an
addition of sulphur or the use of sulphur
soap will bo found efficacious. Baths of bran,
starch and gelatine soften and cleanse tho
skin. Cold water baths are not generally to
bo recommended unless attended with the
free use of soap and a lively friction.
Bran or starch added to warm baths in
creases the unctuousness of the skin, which
delays tho formation of wrinkles. Gelatine
has a similar effect. Baths with aromatic
plants, cologne water, benzoin, essences of
thyme or Wintergreen, or borate of soda, all
have tho effect of checking excessive or offen
sive secretions of the skin. Friction with oil
after the bath was the custom among Greeks
and Romans, and is still throughout the civil
ized world greatly in favor. The Empress Pop-
paea used baths of milk. Blanche d’Antigny,
a noted contemporary demimondane of
Paris, baths of champagne. In regard “te the
celebrated baths of Mine. Tallien, we are left

The black pimples of the no6e are not al
ways due, as is supposed, to a small and very
curious worm to which scientists have given
the name of demodex folliculorum, though
this is found frequently in the skin of man
and of animals. There are in the skin little
glands, the office of some of which is to se
crete perspiration, and of others the fatty
sebaceous fluid which is intended by nature
to keep the outer coating soft and pliable.
These communicate with tho surface by mi
nute pores invisible to the naked eye. These
openings sometimes become obstructed, when
there follow several forms of skin disease.
The most simplo form of malady, which is
caused by an excessive secretion of the seba
ceous fluid, which becomes hard and black, is
called by tho physicians acne simplex. When
the complaint is more serious it is caused by
the congestion or inflammation of the atro
phy or hypertrophy of the sebaceous glands.
Then the black pointe increase in size, espe
cially if the skin is not kept clean, and there
are larger pimples on the skin which suppur
ate. Pressing one of these pimples, there
emerges a long, black, cylindrical object
which resembles a worm, but which is mere
ly fatty matter hardened and mixed with
dust. If the most fluid ¡»art is dissolved in a
drop of olive oil or other the worms are some
times found, with the aid of a microscope,
floating in it.
The causes of a bad skin are bad digestion,
boil blood and generally a want of neatness.
Even if the blood is not in perfect condition,
if the skin is kept clean, pimples may in
most cases l»e avoided, which is not saying
that the blood should not be kept pure by all
possible means. To this end ths diet must be
regulated and the digestion kept good. In
this regard the French are exceedingly rea
sonable. They drink red wine, which is an
excellent corrective, and they rarely drink it
to excess. They are discreet in their use of
acids, alcohol, rich syrups, smoked meats,
lobsters and oysters. They eat little buck
wheat, fruit or meat pies, sausage«, spices, or
other fatty substances. As a general thing,
whatever may be said of the infrequency
with which they bathe the body, they keep
the face clean and have good complexions, as
a rule. Preparations which French women
use for the face are numerous and can easily
be found. They do not wash the face too
often with alkaline toaps, but clean it with
bean flour, meal or bran, applied with tepid
water and a piece of flue linen. Creams are
often used. The frequent drinking of milk
is recommended as keeping the stomach,
liver and kidneys in order, and so indirectly
