Shiny skin can be a nuisance. And when you try to alleviate the problem — “Maybe I just need to wash my face again?” — you can unknowingly aggravate already irritated skin.

Adele reportedly lost over 100 pounds, which is notable, but more so is the way the media approached her body as if it had nothing really to do with how she looked and everything to do with her internal mental state. “It was never about losing weight,” an “insider” told People in January. “Her weight loss happened because she has cut down drinking and is eating more real food. But she now loves her physical transformation too. She is more confident, dresses differently and she just seems happier overall.” There

“I didn’t have any warning,” said Carla Gallegos. “I [found out] Sunday morning when I went to do my weekly check-in on the state’s website.”

Now, jobless Arizonans will only receive a maximum $240 weekly payment from the state.

For Gallegos, it’s far less.

“I would challenge anyone in Washington to come live off $117 a week,” said Gallegos. “I have no money for rent right now, I have no money for utilities, I have no money for food for my dog right now.”

She says getting back into the workforce with COVID-19 still present is just too dangerous.

“I am diabetic and I only have
