Sexy Barbara Bach goes mod for Ponds Fresh-Start. 

Sorry about the title to this post, I can't ever resist a lame pun - and by rule of thumb, the lamer the pun, the better. I mean, this ad from 1966 featuring the future Mrs. Ringo Starr, Barbara Bach, is just begging for it. This polka-dotted printable for Ponds Fresh-start spot remover professes to be the perfect pimple preventer. Don't take my word for it, the ad reads:

Spots are in, but not on your skin. new Fresh-Start by Pond's cleans out oil-choked pore openings, the breeding ground for blemishes. 

Who wants a spotty, polka-dotty skin? If up to now you haven't been able to get rid of those spots, here's a cleanser that cuts the breeding ground right out from under them! Fresh-Start is a marvelous new greaseless gel that cleans out the dirt... clears away the oil that can cause blemishes... tingles, tones, medicates your skin till it sparkles! Wash with icy-fresh, tingling Fresh-Start twice a day to help prevent blemishes. Wear between cleansings to protect and medicate invisibly. It's the new unbeatable way to help you look sparklin - and spotless!

Ponds wants to know  "who wants a spotty, polka dotty skin?" I have an answer to that folks, his name is Roy Lichtenstein, and he made himself immortal because of it.
