Life expect'n'sea

 

Daedalus succeeded in getting his son Icarus out of the Maze by sticking wings on his back with wax. 'What? Wax! What? wax! What? Wax!' Oh, shut up Cerberus, will you! Yeah, I know, it's not very smart for an architect. In general you use wax to bring shine or glide, not to stick things together. What's more, Daedalus obviously knew his system wouldn't resist, because he kept warning his son about the danger of flying in the heat. Anyway, Icarus didn't need that kind of advice, because his massive congenital hairiness had always kept him away from warm places. 

After a couple of miserable attempts the poor lad did take off, but his flight didn't last very long, as was to be expected. He was finally found dead, drowned in the sea near the island of Samos.
'I told him not to!' Daedalus kept shouting. 'He wanted to get high and now he's stone... dead!'

In front of the mortal remains of his son, the architect was more pensive than sad, and suddenly a brilliant idea came to his mind. This smooth and silky skin at the place where the wings used to be, it was the undeniable proof of the moisturising properties of algae as well as the depilating virtues of wax. Thalassotherapy and cosmetics were born! All that remained to be done now for Daedalus was find a slogan for his future beauty parlour. And it was his son who inspired the name of his line of dermatological products : "With I CARE treatment cream, enjoy the sun and save your skin!"
