May Day Lore

In many parts of the country  washing your face in dew collected on May Day was said to be excellent for the complexion and also had medicinal effects. It was recommended for sore eyes, gout and weakness of the bones. Washing your face in May day dew was also said to prevent the skin from being tanned by the sun and becoming freckled.
