Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Scuurdoy, April 18, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 17 The Skin Game Part Five No Magic Cure For Wrinkles, Baldness, Acne By RUTH WINTER Copyright, 1970, Women's News Service NEW YORK (WNS) - From mini-skirts to make-up, the accent in America is on youth, and' cosmetics manufacturers - both ethical and unethical - know it! There was an advertisement recently for a $5 make-up which showed before and after pictures of an Indian woman. "If this product," the ad said, "can hide every line and wrinkle of this 46-year-old Indian grandmother, imagine what it can do for you." The ad went on to say Che "rich man" who invented the product could "formerly help only the wealthy or already beautiful" but now he wants to "get rid of every ugly line and wrinkle in the whole world." Instead of selling the product for $10, $15, or $50, the ad, said, this charitable man was willing to sell it for only $5. in another advertisement in an expensive woman's magazine, a cosmetics manufacturer promised to make readers look "radiosa" by "shedding dry wrinkles, sallowness and naso-labial folds." This manufacturer's wrinkle remover cost from $14.95 to $46.50. Both the $5 product and the $46.50 one aren't worth two cents as far as removing wrinkles, according to the medical authorities to whom I showed them. Cases are now pending in court against a number of more famous cosmetics firms who promoted expensive wrinkle-removing products a few years ago. The ingredient in some was serum albumin from bulls, which, for $5 an ounce, "stretched" the wrinkles temporarily. Other contained irritants which irritated the skin so it "puffed up" the wrinkles. Estrogen creams, which claim to make the skin more Forthcoming Marriages Mr. and Mrs. Bert Erickson of Lethbridge are happy to announce the engagement of their daughter, Bonnie Ardeen, to Mr. Gerald Gordon Moench, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dave Moench of Bow Island.

Dr. Marjorie Bauer, associate professor of medicine, University of Southern California Medical School, speaking onj cosmetic quackery at an American Medical Association meeting, said: "The need for administration of an estrogen preparation, the dosage and the route by which it should be administered, whether topical or systemic, should be determined by a physician." The fact that even minute amounts of estrogen can be absorbed through the skin and cause systemic effects, was brought out in a 1968 Swiss medical journal report which was later reprinted in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The report stated four children, three boys and one girl, showed signs of precocious puberty after using estrogen containing products. In one case, it was an ointment, in three cases, a hair lotion. BALDNESS Besides wrinkling, the two other common fields susceptible to highly questionable promises are balding and acne. The most common form of baldness is male pattern baldness for which there is no known method of reversal. We all normally lose about 100 hairs a day. An advertisement for a baldness preparation, says: "If you are troubled by thinning hair, dandruff, itching scalp ... if you fear approaching baldness, read the rest of this statement carefully. It may mean the difference to you between saving your hair and losing the rest of it to eventual baldness." The ad goes on to say: "Baldness is simply a matter of substraction. When the number of new hairs fail to equal the number of falling hair, you end up minus your bead of hair (bald)." The ad goes on to offer a product which supposedly con-, trols "seborrhea, the technical name for dandruff. Dandruff rarely if ever causes baldness. ACNE As far as acne, the plague of teenagers, is concerned, I found advertisements for a soap, for instance, which sells for 59 cents. The well-known manufacturer promised the "super soap" would have the "deep-down stuffing action of tiny scrub grains . . . purge every oil clogged pore . . ." Another advertisement hi a teenage magazine, also from a well-known company, promises a soap which is a "pill for upset skin ... the perfect prescription for pimples, blemishes and oiliness." ' , According to skin specialists interviewed, these higher priced products have no more to recommend them than plain soap and water and time. I took the ads for wrinkle removers, baldness remedies and acne remedies to FDA and Federal Trade Commission representatives. I also showed them joint ads from elegant department stores and high priced cosmetics companies promising "revolutionary breakthroughs" in cosmetics. Calendar Of oCocai ^J4appenin^6 -A. E.

Phone 327-5767 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: A close relative who is married and has one small child is grossly overweight. She is under 30, looks 45, has a pretty face, and wears lovely clothes. In spite of her wardrobe, the girl is repulsive with all that fat. Every time she comes to visit she looks heavier than before. I cringe at the sight of her. Don't tell me it's none of my business. This girl's gluttony has made her look like a baby elephant. She is a source of embarrassment to the entire family-everyone except her husband, that is. He doesn't seem to notice. Whoever said, "Love is blind" knew what he was talking about. How can those of us wJm love this fat slob motivate her to lose 50 or more ugly pounds?-No Fat Here s DEAR NO: You sound as if you have quite a lot of fat yourself-between the ears. A young woman who is 50 pounds overweight is a compulsive eater with deep psychological problems. The best thing you can do is keep quiet. Your notion that the girl's obesity is hurting the family Is interesting, indeed. Interesting, too, that you did not identify the relationship. I'll bet a dollar to a drachma she's your daughter and at the bottom of her eating problem is a mother who has been nagging the very life out of her.  * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: No doubt you've had plenty of beefs from housewives who didn't like your advice on delivery men who track mud in the house. You said they shouldn't be asked to remove their shoes-even after the lady made it plain it does no good to ask them to use the doormat because they still ruin the rugs. She went on to say, "Delivery men are getting ruder and less considerate all the time-which is not surprising, since the quality of people as well as goods and services are deteriorating." I happened to run across a company directive dated October 28, 1911. It was from the Chicago Bell Telephone Plant Superintendent to the Service Employees. I quote from it herewith: "When you enter a residence don't overlook the foot-mat If requested to go around to the back door don't consider yourself insulted. Try to realize that the lady of the house may not have a maid and she is trying to save work for herself. And if the lady tells you her phone is no good, don't agre* with her. Say, "Your phone is as good as anybody's." Then go ahead and make sure it is." It's -true, Ann, the more things change the more they are the same. - Lake Forest DEAR LAKE: Thanks for the reminder. And now-if someone at the telephone company can do something about an error in a computerized bill, I'd appreciate it very much.
