Tired of products that bring invisible improvements to my appearance, I smeared some on the crepe swag below my chin. The most dramatic result was caused by the scent. Initially pleasant, it soon had my cold virus-ridden mucous membranes in revolution. When my eyes cleared, I read the promotional material. Body Life promises with a few weeks of use to eliminate or at least reduce (by as much as an inch) the cellulite padding thighs and other areas of fleshy excess. Of course, it works "best" and results Jane Harriman Terrie on vacation Terrie Chrzanowski's dispatch does not appear today. She's fine just taking a well-deserved break. Her account of her ongoing battle against cancer will return to Life & Leisure next week. can be "speeded" by using the other two angles in Clarins' "triangle strategy to body care," exercise and good nutrition. The press kit calls it a "major body care innovation," and contains scientific-sounding testimony from "Doctor Lafontan" (no relation, I'm sure, to La Fontaine, the 15th century French writer of fables) of the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research. He claims it can "act in synergy on adipocytes (fat cells) to stimulate lipolysis (the "burning off" of fat cells) and help rebalance and normalize lipogenesis (the creation of fat cells.) It is a melange of fruit derivatives and plant extracts such as butcher's broom, horse chestnut and menthol. The last three "combine to simulate the benefits of and refreshing quality of a cold water shower." (The going price of a cold water shower is not mentioned; a 7-ounce bottle of Body Lift will be available for about $45 next month in department stores.) Are your kids stress-proof? There's a new book of information about "Stress Proofing Your Child," (Bantam, $10.95) subtitled "Mind-Body Exercises to Enhance Your Child's Health." Authors Sheldon Lewis and his wife, Sheila Kay Lewis, describe stress-proofing exercises that should be enjoyable family games, no matter what the children's ages. I - - - .n But it's wise to start when the children are toddlers. This will give you about 20 years of controlling your own stress. Also, consider how stressful it might be to try to talk a teen into starting relaxation exercises with you. The Lewises write: "As parents, we can help each of our children to become 'stress-proof on a daily basis and provide them with tools to meet the challenges in their lives." Better bowels, better living Sometimes it seems women get all the embarrassing health problems. In recent years, we've heard a lot about urinary incontinence Now it seems a lot of us get bowel incontinence, a disorder of the sphincter control, that can occur after childbirth. Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia has a Center for Bowel Dysfunction. Dr. Deborah Nagle, a colorectal surgeon there, tsays when the problem was caused by childbirth treatment helps up to 90 percent of women. Nagle says the average woman waits 14 years for help. "We have good outcomes in women over 60 and 75 years of age," she says. Jane Harriman Is a staff reporter.

'Anything is possible' Women's conference is 12th for Delaware By STEPHANIE WHYCHE Staff reporter Betty Freidan, Andrea Mitchell, Shirley Chisholm, Gloria Steinem, Geraldine Ferraro, Marva Collins, Ntonzake Shange, Sarah McClendon. These are some of the women who have delivered the keynote address at the Delaware Women's Conference over the years. Saturday, Wilma Mankiller, a leader of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, will offer another perspective of womanhood when she speaks before the 12th annual conference in Newark. With the theme being "Anything Is Possible," Mankiller fits the bill perfectly. She was born in poverty and grew up in a family of 11 siblings. If she rould rise within male-dominated culture to become principal chief of 96,000-plus Cherokees, then anything is possible for any woman anywhere, say conference organizers.
