The neck band I1 is in one piece and is v around the neck and hold the neck portion firmly attached to the posterior peripheral edge of the against the neck. chinband and to the posterior edge of themid The hood is preferably made of three parts, a section II. The free ends of the neck band cross 7 front section it which as shown in Figure 6 at the back of the neck so that practically the 50 is generally speaking semi-circular incontour; entire neck from front to back is covered. The jf a middle portion I i, which I will term the head ribbons 22 cross in the back of the neck and are ban which has convexly curved side edges, drawn forward and tie in front of the neck, thus I and which extends over the crown of the head eliminating any knots, at the back of the head and is sewedto the front portion l0; anda back which would cause discomfort while sleeping. g

The fabric which forms the band and the neck band is elastic in the directionof'the great- 'est' length. This elasticity acts to yieldingly draw the material of the chin band and neck band'up snugly againstthe outer surface of the chin, neck and cheeks softhat the flesh is held firmly in place and has aconstant' tendency to reduce H anysagg'ing'muscles, and there is also a constant 1 tendency to pull the flesh or skin at the cheeks and under the eyes rearward, thus fcolmteracting any wrinkles beneath the eyes'and any-downward sagging of the cheeks but acting to draw the ti toitheir natural position.

It will beseen that the neck band covers th fure neat over night and this is particularly' necessaryafter the hair has, J been dressed." This hoodor mask also protects thepillows and'bed clothes from'becoming-soiled with beautycifeam. 7 "As an applicator, this hood or'm'ask is used in' conjunction with the necessary creams and lotions, which a'idjin correcting flabbiness, toning up the muscles and feeding the 'skin with'desired creams and lotions, thus building up'the tissues and creating a youthful appearance; p

1 As before stated, the chin band and thence band are elastic each in the direction of its'length. The head band, however, which'is the portion II, has a two-way pull, that ;is;it stretches in' two directions, this being nece$ary iii-order: that the hood may be slipped over the hem- T Once on the head,- the hood: or head portion stays placed.

The chin band whichis attached "to the head band had a one directionalpull-along its length so that the v constant pressure exerted onl the chin muscles and'the cheek muscles by the will reduce the chin muscles and the cheek muscle s. :-,Tmsa1s applies to the neckbandll, that is, its elasticity is in the direction of its length so that the 'amountof pull on the "ties 22will:

exert a constantpressure' on the chin andineck muscles, thereby reducing these muscles. I

Creams, 1otions,;salves or any medicaments can be applied 'to the inner surface'of the chin and. V

neck band and then the device placed in position;

on the respective parts'of. the head. Thus this hood will serve as a medicinal applicatoras well as a cream applicator. V

This device may also be used for retaining the contiguous parts of fractures inplace and in, the

healing of fractures of the mandible and maxilla.

Whilc I have illustrated a particular construction of this hood, and illustrated this hood as being formed of five pieces, ,I do not wish to be limited thereto, nor to the .use of lastex or net in the construction of the hood as the head portion,flthe; chin and the neck band might be knitted inone piece or the head portion knitted :in'one piece and thechin and neck' band knitted in one piece and attached to the head portion t below the temple.
