LookinGood is slipping into summer mode, when we shift from weekly missives to bi-monthly (that's twice a month. I looked it up.)
In the fall, we'll slam back into high gear, with real and ridiculous features about the Three P's of Vanity - Products, Processes and Plastic surgery.

Thanks for sticking with us,

Fat mouseSex-based fat distribution pattern in humans

A study regarded as "shocking," published in the International Journal of Obesity, confirmed what every woman already knows - fat cells land in different places based on gender.  I have rarely seen a man with a balloon butt, thunder thighs or fat ankles.  Nor are there many young women with beer bellies, unless they are pregnant or the rest of their body is also proportioned toward the extra, extra large. The surprise to scientists was why. "The scientists were shocked to find major sexual dimorphism of fat tissue storage and distribution in high-fat-diet-induced obese male and female mice," the report said.  In other words, it's in our genes.

The study was done on mice who, as it turns out, have similar sex-based fat distribution pattern to humans.  But there were some definite surprises in the data, particularly for the men. Read on.

Forward to a Friend
Goldie got the chance of a lifetime.  After weeks of online correspondence, she was chosen to be transformed by the best in the style and beauty business, compliments of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Understandably, she thought she would learn how to make the most of what Mother Nature had given her, but her lesson was much, much different.

There have been a lot of depressing studies this month, it seems.  Now, Fox News and other sources report that a doctor from Weill Cornell Medical College in New York has found that using Botox or other muscle-paralyzing injectables, may actually cause other wrinkles.  It stands to reason that if a person is trying to frown and can't because his or her face is frozen, some other muscle group will try to pick up the slack - thereby causing wrinkles in a new area.  There's just no winning, it seems.  Sigh.

This was forwarded to you and you're not sure what to make of it? Don't over-analyze it, just sign up for the weekly newsletter.  We're entertaining, and make you look good or your money back.
