“The prescription for this ancient beautifier is 1-100 of a grain of arsenic and two grains of black pepper.  One of these pills should be taken after dinner.  It clears the complexion and brings a ruddy glow to the lips and cheeks . . . ” Cora Brown Potter The Secrets of Beauty and the Mysteries of Heath (1908)

I’LL STAY PALE AND PIMPLY, THANKS.
