Ladies: Enough with the Botox already!

Ladies: Enough with the Botox already!

  I was wondering if it was my imagination at first, but it seems to me that more and more people (particularly women) are taking youthful appearance advice from the likes of Madonna, Cher or Dolly Parton.

Hopefully, something like, “Um, Sher, what about all the other ingredients? Just flour and sugar will create a mess—not a cake.”
And you’d be right.
