Oil of Pearls (1756)

“Put upon a Plate any Quantity you please of Pearls, and pour over them some good distill’d Vinegar. When the Pearls are dissolved, add a small Quantity of Gum Arabic. Keep the Solution for Use. Wash your Face before you bathe it with this Solution, which will soon dry of itself. This is one of the best Secrets that have been invented for rendering the Face both white and fair.”

Abdeker: Or, the Art of Preserving Beauty, by Antoin Le Camus, 1756
