Skin Deep

Its been ages since I last blogged. Time flew and suddenly its the end of the year! What?!!! I have to say that Hurricane Sandy not only stole November from me, it aged me by about 8 years (don't ask how I came up with that number just take it as read). I am more stooped, much grayer and all traces of collagen in my face blew away in the high winds.

The other day I woke up and looked in the mirror and Morley Safer was looking back at me.  The deep tram lines between my eyebrows and parentheses around my mouth made me look like a bitter old hag (no comments please) so I decided to do some scientific-ish research into improving skin tone through diet and supplements.

Now, I am the queen of knee-jerk reactions.  My husband has to edit/destroy every Monday morning email I write to my kids' coaches about the amount of play time they got during the weekend's games. Even my nice emails come across as snooty because email has no tone and I am English.  Anyway, when I came across an article about a supplement that boosts your pituitary gland (thereby improving collagen production, muscle tone, hair lustre, sleep quality, etc.) I jumped on it.  Snake Oil!  Fantastic!

Long story short, I'm not seeing any improvement.  I saw Denise Richards on TV yesterday and now I'm dying to know HER secret.  That chick is radiant! On balance though, of all the things Sandy took from people, my youthful glow is a small price to pay; what we at Weaselsnot like to call a "princess problem".  Plus I've asked Santa for a new face for Christmas.  Hope I made the "nice" list.
