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.
