Handle with care
My husband and I watched a movie with Jane Fonda one night and I
remarked afterward how absolutely fabulous the actress looks. "But her
hands give her age away," my husband responded. I looked at my hands
with shock, and have been wearing gloves ever since.
exaggerate of course, but hand rejuvenation is a new specialty among
esthetic professionals for good reason. While the skin of the face and
neck may get all the attention in the fight against aging, the condition
of our hands are, as my husband pointed out - a dead giveaway. No
matter how fat your butt is, older hands lose their fatty tissue and
look bony and wrinkled. Hands are often the first thing damaged by the sun, which
results in freckles and age spots. Because they are always in water and
being wiped off, skin on your hands is often dry and itchy. Even the
veins stick out more as we age. Remember the hands of the Wicked Witch
of the East?
You get my point. If hands are your
issue, you are not alone.
|A boom is a tool used to remove oil from water, as in an oil slick, as
in the Gulf Coast/BP/one-of-the-worst-in-history oil slicks. Usually
booms are made of plastic, but an alternative boom is made with human
hair, right off the salon floor. Stuffed into panty hose and resembling sausage, the hair booms are being produced all over the country thanks to local salons that are making donations. NPR reports that, unfortunately, not many women wear nylons anymore, so they're having a
little trouble finding old panty hose. But a spokeswoman for Matter of Trust, a San Francisco group spearheading the hair drive,
says that the great thing about being based in Bay area is the
city's transvestite community, "which has readily donated nylons."|
Some foreigners have all the luck. Business Week reports that
Brazilian taxpayers got a bonus this year when their federal government
decided to allow them to deduct cosmetic surgery from their income
taxes. Not only that - it is retroactive back to 2004. The action is
to help spur the already $2 billion USD plastic surgery business in the
country. "Rogerio Gandra Martins, a tax lawyer at Sao Paulo's
Advocacia Gandra Martins, said the lost revenue represented by the
deductions is more than compensated for by expanding payrolls."
