1923 – Mr and Mrs Rudolph Valentino appear at the Valentino Mineralava Beauty Contest in Kansas City

Any girl in Kansas City can go to the Convention Hall and enter the Valentino Mineralava Beauty Contest. A contest will be held of the prettiest girls in KC and Mr. Valentino will choose one who will get a prize and later have a chance with beauties from other cities to be Valentino’s new leading lady in his next picture. The charm of a perfect skin may come by chance and afterwards for a certain length of time be held by the inconsistent method of artifice, which however in the end will prove injurious. Valentino is the principal enthusiast of MINERALAVA in this country. He discovered by experience his skin was suffering from wearing effects of an outdoor life and from the clogging of the pores caused by grease paint he is obliged to use before the camera. In this day and age, no man is ashamed to borrow a suggestion from a woman. Mr. Valentino noticed his wife’s purity of complexion and learned she made a habit of the use of MINERALAVAs BEAUTY CLAY. “To my astonishment I discovered upon applying, myself a few applications of MINERALAVA said Mr. Valentino, that it became ever so quickly a necessity that I cannot do without”. “An athlete keeps in trim by daily exercise in a gymnasium. This adds to his self-respect, even if he is not in active training for a contest. It is the same way with folks in everyday life. People should have enough respect for their personal appearance to give a few minutes each day to the use of MINERALAVA, the one perfect nature remedy for the skin-strain of our modern existence. “After the prettiest girls in the different cities have been selected one of whom will be chosen to the be leading lady of my next picture, I am going to insist they keep their skin perfection by the constant use of MINERALAVA. by during this they will be following the example of Julia Sanderson, Majorie Rambeau, Irene Bordoni, Billie Burke, Marion Davies, Nazimova, Leonor Ulric and others.
