"Upon the impression you constantly make rests the failure or success of your life". Touted M. Trilety creator of the "nose shaper! This item was popular by both men and women from the late 1800's through the early 1920's!
The Electric Massage Roller, an "all in one" machine! This was a woman's best friend, helping reduce wrinkles, rid the face of blemishes, built muscle, and could even "take a pound a day" off of the owner of this fine gadget.
The "Curves of Youth" Offending Chin Reducer... name says it all for this machine. A $10.00 investment (in the late 1800's) and you too can forever have the jaw line and neck line of youth...
Dimples have been the envy of many a woman who's face is not endowed with such a mark of beauty. This contraption was touted to give any and all dimples precisely where they were wanted.
These add's attest to the lengths women have sought, for ages, grasping for a beauty not their own. My hopes here is that the absurdity of each of these clips shed a little light on the beauty we each DO have! Maybe you were able to laugh a little, maybe you felt a little heart broken and weary after reading the lengths that women have been "made" to go, and also it is very possible to just shrug it off as the craziness of by gone eras. What ever your response andopinion is of these photo's and advertisements may be, hopefully it will help you look on your own beauty regiment with a little more clarity, from a more objective stand point.
Until Next Time,
