Fortune in Formulas: Toilet Vinegars (1)

(If you try the following and it leaves you with less fingers, a chronic skin condition, or really embarrassed, then it’s your own damn fault.)

“Beauty Water.”–
Fresh egg albumen … 500 parts
Glycerine …………….. 50 parts
50% Alcohol ………… 25 parts
Lemon oil …………….  2 parts
Lavender oil ………….  2 parts
Oil of thyme ………….  2 parts
Mix the ingredients well together.  When first mixed the liquid becomes flocculent, but after standing for 2 or 3 days clears up–sometimes becomes perfectly clear, and may be decanted.  It forms a light, amber-colored liquid that remains clear for months.
At night, before retiring, pour about a teaspoonful of the water in the palm of the hand, and rub it over the face and neck, letting it dry on.  In the morning, about an hour before the bath, repeat the operation, also letting the liquid dry on the skin.  The regular use of this preparation for 4 weeks will give the skin an extraordinary fineness, clearness, and freshness.
