MACHINE MEASURES BEAUTY OF FACE (Feb, 1933)
I’ll forgo the Hellraiser jokes and just say ouch.
MACHINE MEASURES BEAUTY OF FACE
Even beauty may now be reduced to cold, hard figures, according to the inventors of a device that is said to record the contours of a face with thousandth-of-an-inch accuracy. Beauty shops might use the device, the inventors say, to learn how to change their customers’ features. In the inventors’ opinion, the following measurements are ideal: nose, same length as the height of forehead; eyes, separated by a space the width of one eye.
BEARD IS REMOVED WITH MUD AND USE OF X-RAYS (Apr, 1924) (Apr, 1924)
So basically this is just a facial waxing followed by lots of x-rays. Actually, I’ll bet this works. Most people who have been exposed to large doses of radiation do not have to worry about shaving, or combing their hair, or brushing their teeth.
BEARD IS REMOVED WITH MUD AND USE OF X-RAYS
Shaving beards from men’s faces, has been accomplished by a special mudlike paste that is undergoing experiments at the hands of a New York doctor. After the mass has been applied, it hardens and is torn off. To finish the operation, X-rays are then directed against the skin. The originator of the method claims that it is beneficial and if used regularly will remove scars and similar marks of long standing. It is also said that the sticky treatment does not leave any ill effects on tender skins.
