The clothes in my closet have to be in color coordinated.
Every wife wants to be a good wife to their husbands, but no one wants to be treated like a servant.
But such was the case in 1955 when Housekeeping Monthly ran an article about how to be a “good wife”… and by our standards, it’s pretty shocking.
Here are some quotes taken directly from the magazine … enjoy:
- Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you'll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people.
- Gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper etc. and then run a dustcloth over tables.
- Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.
- Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.
- Your goal: Try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order and tranquility where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.
- Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.
- Don't complain if he's late for dinner or even if he stays out all night. Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through at work.
- Don't ask him questions about his actions or question his judgment or integrity. Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.
- And please always remember that “a good wife always knows her place.”
1) No Spray Sunscreens
There’s growing concern that these sprays pose serious inhalation risks. They also make it too easy to apply too little or to miss a spot, leaving bare skin exposed to harmful rays.
2) No Super-High SPFs
Products with sky-high SPFs may protect against sunburn but could leave your skin exposed to damaging UVA rays.
Although the letters SPF stand for “sun protection factor,” this refers only to protection against UVB radiation, which burns the skin. It has nothing to do with the sun’s UVA rays, which penetrate deep into the skin, suppress the immune system, accelerate skin aging and may cause skin cancer.
3) No Oxybenzone
Commonly used in sunscreens, the chemical oxybenzone penetrates the skin, gets into the bloodstream and acts like estrogen in the body. It can also trigger allergic reactions.
4) No Loose Powder Sunscreens
Loose powder sunscreens are designed to be used on the face and scalp. They often contain tiny particles of zinc and titanium that can potentially offer strong UV protection if enough sticks to the skin. But they end up in the lungs, too, inhaled from a cloud of airborne particles each time they’re applied. There, they can cause damage.
5) No Retinyl Palmitate
When used in a night cream, this form of vitamin A is supposed to have anti-aging effects. But on sun-exposed skin, retinyl palmitate may speed development of skin tumors and lesions, according to government studies.
6) No Combined Sunscreen/Bug Repellents
Skip products that combine bug repellent with sunscreen. Why? For starters, bugs are typically not a problem during the hours when UV exposure peaks. Also, sunscreen may need to be reapplied more frequently than repellent, or vice versa.
7) No Sunscreen Towelettes
FDA’s 2011 sunscreen rules ended the sale of sunscreen wipes and towelettes, but small companies have been granted another year to remove them from their product lines.
8) No Tanning Oils
Tanning oils are simply a bad idea. They promote risky behavior, encouraging users seek out intense sunshine that results in skin damage and increased risk of developing skin cancer.
