LA (BEVERLY HILLS & BEYOND): ALL THE ROID RAGE [SONYA DAKAR’S NUTRASPHERE LINE]

By Nora Zelevansky / October 5th, 2010

I know, I've just been the worst blogger lately.  And by that I mean, that I haven't written word one while away in NYC.

Sorry chickadees.  But I've been shoved back into the game from my position of repose by a story today on elle.com, written by moi, about Sonya Dakar's new Nutrasphere line, which employs bio-engineered Human Growth Hormone and Apple Stem Cells.

I haven't tried the products yet, but, as I mentioned before, I am a fan of her new green sunblock.

So, read on, dear LINTERS.  And forgive me my sins.  Just think of how hard it's been to motivate.  How can I not be depressed now that they've cancelled Huge?  I'm emotionally eating just thinking about it.

LA (AND BEYOND): THE BEST FACE FRIENDLY SUN SCREEN

By Nora Zelevansky / July 7th, 2010

I am NOT happy about this whole aging process.  I want to file a complaint.  Where's the suggestion box?

Not to sound like a complete and total cliche, but I mean why does no one tell you that those pesky aging signs start to pop up when you're still a relative baby?  They should make up a nursery rhyme about it, so kids find out really early and develop realistic expectations:

I'm really Rosie.  And I'm Rosie real.  You better believe me.  Cause pretty soon I'll need to start getting Botox injections and then I won't be quite as real anymore.  Roooosie.  Booootox.  Belieeeeve me.

ANYWAY, for this reason (and the humongous hole sitting directly over Los Angeles–seriously it's like the worst ozone situation in the country), a good sun screen is a must.  But then there's the other problem no tells you about: Wrinkles may be coming in, but the teenage acne is also still omnipresent.  Lurvely.

Sun screen tends to make people break out.  That is why I'm so excited to have discovered Sonya Dakar's new green Daily Face Shield, which has SPF 30.  I've been using it regularly for about a week plus and my skin doesn't seem to be reacting at all, except that it's ostensibly not getting UVA/UVB rays (whatever that is).

And I am just happy to share that news with all of you.  Now maybe I can stop making up terrible nursery rhymes about injectables.  That would be better for everyone's health.
