Hips, Hips, Away! (Jan, 1937)

“After you’ve given each spot the once over, place a heavy turkish towel over the spot and slap the flesh good and hard. Don’t be afraid to put a little determination into those slaps, either. About six good ones are enough”

Very few exercise instructions tell you to repeatedly slap your ass these days.

Hips, Hips, Away!

By MADAME SYLVIA

FASHION, like history, often repeats itself. Lately that mysterious group has been at it again. This time trying to sell American women the idea of bustles, peplums, flares, circular and barrel skirts.

Fashion hasn’t got a chance with such goings-on. They tried once before, and not long ago, to stimulate interest in the hour-glass figure with spacious bosoms and billowy hips, but it was not a success. If your hips are already large, such fandangles as mentioned above will only attract attention to them and make them appear larger. And who wants that?

Basketball “Bumpers” Protect Eyeglasses (Apr, 1941)

Basketball “Bumpers” Protect Eyeglasses

“Bumpers” for basketball players now enable those who wear glasses to enjoy the sport. A transparent guard of unbreakable plastic, cut away to bridge the nose, completely surrounds the spectacles and insures them against being knocked off or shattered if struck. Supported by straps, the headgear is held away from the face by resilient pads resting against forehead and cheeks, and is said not to impair vision. The illustration shows Dick Dikeman, high-school player of Detroit, Mich.

Vacuum Cleaner for the Skin (Jul, 1940)

Vacuum Cleaner for the Skin

Vacuum-cleaning the skin is the task said to be performed by a new beauty accessory. Cone-shaped, the molded-plastic device has a base covered by a pliable-rubber massage brush, while its small end is perforated with tiny holes. To create a vacuum designed to loosen dust and dirt particles in the pores, the rubber-covered end is pressed inward, the small end placed against the skin, and the pressure released. Used after applying cleansing cream, the device is moved over the skin. It can be operated on the neck, shoulders, and arms as well as on the face.

New Miracle of Science: 60 SECOND PLASTIC SURGERY

A beautifying plastic operation now is possible within 60 seconds. This is no joke but the pleasant truth for all those who suffer from the. ill-effects of a disfiguring accident or hereditary ugliness. It may be a broken nose that mars the appearance of its owner, or perhaps a hollow spot in the forehead due to a war injury. In many other cases it is just a question of vanity or the need for particularly attractive features in one’s business. Whatever the reason for a change in a person’s appearance, a new revolutionary method devised by a plastic surgeon in Hamburg. Germany, allows him or her to have it done during one afternoon.

WHAT CAN BE DONE TO PREVENT BALDNESS? (Apr, 1917)

“Every theory, you see, is as sound as a dollar. Any one of them is sufficient to sell a hair tonic or commend a new treatment.”

All those damn quacks, claiming they have a cure!

“A modern method which is of undoubted potency in the treatment of premature loss of hair is the ultra-violet ray. This must not be confused with the comparatively useless violet ray lamp.”

Oh.

WHAT CAN BE DONE TO PREVENT BALDNESS?

by William Brady M.D.

ALOPECIA, as physicians call it —they always tack a fancy title an a disease when they know little or nothing about it— ‘ comes in many forms. There is alopecia adnata, which signifies that some people are born bald. Then we have alopecia senilis, implying that a favored few live long enough to achieve it. But the most painful, the most cowardly type of baldness is alopecia prematura, which is thrust upon us by our friend the barber in his tonsorial operations.
