TO CURE AND PREVENT WRINKLES. 

 

=Pomade d'Hebe.=--This pomade is used for the removal of wrinkles. To 

make: Melt white wax, one ounce, to gentle heat; add juice of lily 

bulbs, two ounces; add honey, two ounces; rose-water, two drams; and 

otto of roses, a drop or two. Use twice a day. 

 

=Lotion for Wrinkles.=--Beautifies the face, preserves the freshness of 

youth, and gives a beautiful brilliancy to the skin. Take the second 

water of barley, one pint, and strain through a piece of fine linen; 

add a dozen drops of the balm of Mecca; shake it well together until 

the balm is thoroughly incorporated with the water, which will be 

effected when the water assumes a whitish or turgid appearance. Before 

applying, wash the face with soft water. If used once a day, this 

lotion will beautify the face, remove wrinkles, preserve the freshness 

of youth, and give a surprising brilliancy to the skin. 

 

=Wash for Wrinkles.=--Take two ounces of the juice of onions, two ounces 

of the white lily, two ounces of Norboune honey, and one ounce of 

white wax; put the whole into a new earthen pipkin until the wax is 

melted, then take the pipkin (crock) off the fire, and continue 

stirring briskly until the mixture grows cold. This should be applied 

on going to bed and allowed to remain on till the morning. 

 

=To Remove Wrinkles.=--To one fluid ounce of tincture of gum benzoin add 

seven fluid ounces of distilled rose-water and one-half ounce of 

glycerine. Bathe face, neck, and hands with it at night, letting it 

dry on. Wash off in the morning with a very little pure white castile 

soap and soft water. This is a famous cosmetic, and has been sold 

under various names. It is an excellent remedy for tan, freckles, and 

sunburn also.
