Dara was carded recently, and playfully but incredulously accused of using a fake ID. "No one pretends to be 44," she replied.
My translucent face is melting like a candle, but Dara's brown face is not. That said, despite seeming invincible, she's not immune to the effects of aging. As you'll hear in our latest podcast episode, this prolific athlete was taken down last Christmas by the mere act of reaching for a pie plate.
Aging itself isn't confounding but the way we fight it sure is. I've spent a lot of money on skin treatments that did absolutely nothing for me, which was fitting.

Who will win the "gray off" that Dara and I have challenged each other to?
