Fighting the Babble of the Bulge

User Rating: / 0

The older I get, the more obvious it becomes to me that metabolism does slow down.  It's like I eat one piece of candy and gain five pounds.   Trying to lose it is a never ending battle.   Sitting in front of a computer all day long working Soapdom is no help either, although I do try to get out and go to the gym, or walk a few miles each day.  

Still, my skin is not as firm as it used to be. Not only that, I live in Los Angeles, which is basically a desert with piped in water.  The climate here is very dry and my skin, especially my hands, feet, calves and arms get very dry.  So, what to do? 

There are so many products out there on the market. Which one to try? Which one to use?  We are so bombarded with media blitzes on a barrage of new products, I usually don't purchase any of them, cos there are just too many  to choose from. 

This was my plight until a new acquaintance told me about a skin care product out of Australia just now hitting the shores of the US. It's called Become Lift & Firm Gel.  It is supposed to help with cellulite (Come on. Which one of us is not obsessed with that?) and moisturize.  It's got Aloe, Bladderwrack Extract (whatever that is, but if it helps it helps), Brazilian Seaweed and Carnitine.   You're to apply after showering while your skin is still warm. 

I started using it yesterday.  It's got a different consistency than you would expect, not greasy or oily in any way. It kinda tingles as you're applying it.  Let's see if this could be the end to my dry skin and encroaching cellulite woes.  I'll keep you posted.

Past Blast

Crystal Chappell & Jessica Leccia reunite in A Million Happy Nows

'A Million Happy Nows' is an upcoming Feature Film starring Crystal Chappell and Jessica Leccia, produced by Perfect Features and Open Book Productions, due to be released later this year.

Veteran actress Lainey Allen (Chappell) is tired of being sidelined for younger talent on the soap she has starred in for twenty years. Coupled with finding it harder to retain her lines, she decides not to renew her contract, and she and her publicist and partner, Eva Morales (Leccia), move to their weekend house overlooking the ocean on the Central California coast. The move highlights some small changes in Lainey’s personality – mild depression that Eva puts down to leaving the show.
