Advertising has not always been monitored and apparently medicine was a lot more effective. This is a quack advert for the cure of cancer.

ARE CANCER CURES BEING WITHHELD....
When women used to be depressed or were not “taking care of their men” properly their husbands could send them to the psych ward for attitude adjustments. This was part of conditioning them to always wear a smile. They believed that if a woman saw herself smiling that it would become natural practice and that she would be “cured”. This often went along with shock therapies.

When women used to be depressed or were not “taking care of their men” properly their husbands could send them to the psych ward for attitude adjustments. This was part of conditioning them to always wear a smile. They believed that if a woman saw herself smiling that it would become natural practice and that she would be “cured”. This often went along with shock therapies. I found this post on Facebook with comments made by people with loved ones who wore these for the reasons mentioned above. After finding this story, I did a Google search and found out about a school in Budapest that used these masks for treatment of depression after World War 2. So yes, these stories are true.
#10 Budapest, Hungary received bad publicity when it was dubbed "The City of Suicides". Efforts were put to make "smiling clubs" and "smiling schools" to change Budapest's reputation to that of "The City of Smiles". Part of the belief was that if people saw themselves smiling enough, the brain would be conditioned into smiling more and therefore being happier.

15 Sexist Ads from the 50's
This vintage ad is so incredibly sexist. It is making women seem as all they are good for is their naked bodies. And that men should be able to look and touch as much as they want. even though it is a drawing of a woman, it still exploits women and makes it as if women are objects, not real people.

At first glance, a toilet mask doesn’t sound so bad. But this mask doesn’t use soothing cucumber extracts to beautify the complexion—it’s an “acid cured” rubber mask coated with “healing agents” meant to eradicate “freckles, liver spots, and other facial blemishes.” Who needs microdermabrasion when you can just use trace amounts of acid?
