Good Grooming Consultant for Pond’s
Whenever beauty treatments are discussed, the average woman’s reaction is, “If I only had the time and money!” She wonders how anyone but a lady of leisure can fit twenty minutes of exercise, a facial and half an hour’s rest before dinner into the day’s routine, to say nothing of manicures, pedicures and setting the hair.
The average woman’s twenty-four-hour schedule is about as elastic as last year’s girdle. The homemaker has breakfast to get, dishes to wash, beds to make and the other well-known household chores–all on top of an early start for the sake of a commuting male. For the career girl, breakfast and a hasty tidying-up job are combined with a mad scramble to check in at the office at nine sharp, looking her smart and efficient best.
Is either of these ladies apt to rise a half an hour ahead of time to bump and bend in the chilly dawn? Will they shut themselves up in the evening after a long hard day and go through a dreary series of “Left, right, down, up?”
