I try to do it once a month at least, and I make sure to take care of my skin in between. And, yeah, I get Botox. I go to Dr. DiBernardo (about $600 every three to five months) in Montclair, New Jersey. I don't usually like to talk about it, but why not? It came out for a reason, so why not use it, right?

Those 30 minutes of quality "me time" sets the tone for a positive and productive day."
