Do most working moms want a makeover?

I was on my way out the door the other day when I skidded to a stop in front of the hallway mirror, struck by the huge dark circles under my eyes.

Don't all busy working moms want a makeover? It seems so... even the celebrity ones who already look great.

Jessica Alba got a bit of a digital assist for a recent photo shoot, and she still doesn't feel good about herself:

“Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack,” Alba tells Elle Magazine in the upcoming March issue. “She told me to put an elastic band around my waist — any kind of band or girdle works. She was like, ‘I slept in it.’ I didn’t recover as fast as she did. I [still] don’t have a six-pack.”

For the record: “Still” means “About eight months after giving birth.” I’m sorry, I’m 27 months post-partum, and the only six-pack I’ve got is in my fridge.

Do you think you need a makeover? Read the rest (and sound off) at The 36-Hour Day.
