Summer Beauty Hints from 1934June 05, 2015
For those who cannot be near the shore all summer and would like to, there's a way to bring the ocean to the bathroom. All the soothing yet stimulating effects of a salt water dip can be enjoyed right into one's own bathroom. A hand full of salt added to a tubful of warm water makes a very restful bath before retiring. During the summer it is hardly necessary to caution not to take a very hot bath before bedtime. This should be avoided because far from being relaxing, the hot bath can be so stimulating as to keep one awake.
An occasional salt rub in the morning sets one up splendidly, making one feel alert even on an enervating day. After tub or shower while the body is still moist, rub a handful of salt over it quite vigorously. Then under the shower again and rinse off every grain of salt. This salt rub is particularly recommended to keep one free of body odor.
