Beauty secrets of male cabinet ministers

2008-02-16 00:00

Pretoria — At least four male cabinet ministers use Botox, apparently to smooth their frowns and make them appear friendlier.

Dr Nanita Dalton, a general practitioner specialising in beauty treatments, said this week that an increasing number of men, including farmers, pilots and politicians, are using her services.

“The ministers are decent guys and concerned about their appearance. They want to appear friendly and be able to walk into meetings without feeling concerned about their looks,” she said. She refused to reveal their identities.

Some farmers who get headaches from frowning at the sun all day are having Botox shots in their foreheads.

Dalton has between 500 and 700 Botox patients a month.
