Luli Deste's Beauty Hints

St. Petersburg Times, november 23rd, 1940

Luli Deste, Viennese beauty, now at Warner Bros. for "The Case of the Black Parrot," has the most unusual set of beauty hints in the world. She uses nothing but natural food products to beautify her skin because they contain natural oils and beneficial complexion vitamins. Peanut oil, or peanut butter as a facial mask, are used to soften her skin, orange juice for whitening (as we use lemon juice) and cream of the top of the milk bottle as a night cream.


  1. Wise lady! I've heard that trick about "top cream" before from mid-century sources. It makes one want to call up a dairy, track some down, and try it themselves. :)
