Old Fashioned Recipes; Wrinkle Cream, Mayonnaise Moisurizer and Oatmeal Cleanser!

I'm snowed in today with a blizzard raging outside, school and work both canceled. As I sip coffee and flip through some old depression era recipes I'm content and smiling as I 'rediscover' recipes and idea's from our not-to-distant history but have been lost due to the easy availability of commercial products in their place.

The last one; oatmeal cleanser, I've actually used many times and I add ground oatmeal to my homemade almond soaps as a great light version of a loofah.

I salute the good, old fashioned, homemade versions of wrinkle creams and moisturizers.

Wrinkle Cream
