Page Written by Canadians for the Canadian Woman HAVE YOU NOTICED YOUR CHEEKS ROSIER? Rainy Summer Has Been a Great Thin^ for the Complexions of Our Canadian Girls-More Nearly Approach the English Strawberry and Cream Type. O By MONIS DAUB. iVTARIO ladles' faces havo always bcon churmlni;. and tho Province has boon notoU tor Ita beautiful women. In splto of tho high Rtandard, however, an Improvement has lately been noticed. A emdual, Alluring change has been at work, a subtle, unthought-of Influence, and, lo, our girls aro more ravishing than over. It Isn't that tholr fcaturca hivvo been altered; nor Is It the result of a closer attention to tho laws of beauty. Tho chango has come In tho cpm-ploxlon, and tho good fnlry Is something which tho boneflclarioa have hated nnd execrated. Such Is tho peculiar method of that uiifnlhoin-ablo goddess. Nature herself. Tho maglo bcautlflor has boon no-Ihiris less' thnn tho intormlnablc \vct weather of tho present summer. Every day that you wore bewailing tho darkness, you were finding fault with your best friend. A glimmer of light has already reached gome of tho' ladles, but the majority aro still nnthanktiil. Either thp-y haven't noticed tho softening and refinement of their complexion, or they havo attributed it to their own cleverness. It they havo failed to recognize It altogothor. It is because tho ohengo has boon going on everywhere around them. Their next door neighbor has a complexion nearer tho "strawberry and cream" Ideal than sho had at tho beginning of the season. Their friend visiting from another city has also more of a "pinVc and white" face than they have seeii before. In tho gentral Improyoment, specific Instances aro not so prominent. Beat Coniplexion Creams. THAT rain and dampness are tho best "creamy" for the complexion is easily copablo of proof ow(nB to universal example, TTie Ontario com-ploxloii always has been rather good beoauBo this Province has rarely been affUcteU with long periods of drought. Except by the most prejudiced, how-over, It has been agreed that tho English complexion (s morejdeal than the one typical of Ontario: Occasionally, of course, tho English face coloring is too pink ond almost borders on the fioHd. But tho average should bo the basis of comparison, and this method awards tho palm to Great Britain's daughters. Tho women of Franco, for example, althoug)] charming by reason of their Intelligence, wit, and vivacity, besides tho Indefinable quol-Ity of French piquancy, cannot compete with tho English girls In the delicate bloom of their chooks. Some of them Imltato It marvolously well with artificial helps, and others, who live neqr the aoa, do not need extraneous aids. As a nation, however, the Etigllsh have more satiny complexions' than the French. Tho reason? Undoubtedly, the humidity and dampnoHs of the British j.sies. The nlr of Franco Is clearer and drier; It probably quickens tho intellect, but; U dulls tho cheeks. For this pummcr, Ontario has boon England at Its very dampest, and our women are now tho po-ssossors of tho Bz^mo dollcalely-hued, sllk-llKe sUln. Tho effect of tho cllmato on the I complexion is nowhero more graphically tUustrated than in Western Canada. The present flood conditions have prevailed on tho prairies also this BoaBon, but ijsually tho air Inlhat region la remarkably dry. ms pne of the chief advertisements of the West, and Is extolled In all real ostato ttdvertlacments, and praised by every man, who feela his blood tinglo more vigorously and his mind act more brlsUly. Tho women, however, either keep silent pr openly complain. They ki^ow that their complexion is suffering, and that only the wholesale use of' lotions and a periodical visit to o damper cUmato will prevent their skin drying and cracking. Facet Like Rosea in B.C. TaAVEL. a fe\y hundred miles further, to tho Brltl.sh Golumbla coast, and see tho difference. After llYtnK on tho prairies tor a year. It Is almost startling to drop Into Vancouver some afternoon, and to go down to tho docks whore crowds of sally dressed women aro waiting for the coast steamers to take thorn for a trip to Victoria or Seattle. Tho ladles' fqces ore like roaos, tho dainty pink rose* blooming In the Innumerable "Vancouver gardens. The rain has done ii ^IJ. Perhaps our girls here will never have as good an opportunity again as thoy have had during this wot summer. They should realize, however, ttie real lilcBalngs ot damp wouthcri Uf)d should dotermtno to take every ppsslblo advantage from even Infre-quorft rains In the future. Tho trouble is t^at Ontario women don't know how t.� act in wot weather. When thoy see tHe clouds roll up and tho sky darken, they munibio and grumlilo aboyt not beln(j ablo to go out. They avol4 the rain like a plague; they will run for a blpclt to get away from It. Rather skoiild they welcome It, and rush out tq meet It, Palms and plants are hurried on to Iho front steps to beUutlfy tholr coloring; tholr owners, howovor, a(fty inside-and vuhi u, coloring which is infinitely mora bewitching than that of an inanimato voeelablo. Why are woniun hero afrulU ot tho njlp? pimply bgcause Uioy have not schooled thei�ao)voa to dresH properly in >vot woathor. Tlicy (lihik that either frocks, or put on dull, ugly rain coals. What Is needed la a genius of a dressmaker who win design,Ohio garments for rainy times. There has been a tondeticy in this direction recently, but further advances can be made. Pretty in the Rain. LET a woman once believe this, that sho con look pretty in the rain and at the samo time bo beautifying her cotnploxlon, nnd sho will refuse to stay Indoors. That would he a healthy haiilt. Even apart from itH Influence on tho complexion, the damp weather, except for those aftllctott with acute rhouma-tlsm. is not harmful. Rain purifies tho atmosphere, and helps rather than hinders good health. Several doctors have deolarea just this week' that hay fever has been not as serious as usual owing to the purifying mfluence of tho rain. Typhoid also, Ih normal circumstances. Is not likely to become epidemic in wet wottther, as ih dry, for tiio germs do not multiply os readily as in baked, overheated streets, and buildings. Let .\vpmen, therefore, sing praises to the rain, and Instead of looking back at the summer of 1912 as a time of discomfort, regard It as a magic conveyor of beauty and health.
