  • "I've been getting lots of e-mails and comments regarding the botox episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, so I wanted to address this today to clear some things up. On the show you saw I had some bruising around my eyes after the procedure, which is totally natural, but because I hadn't looked into the side effects, I freaked out. I am not against botox, and I would never judge anyone else for getting any kind of surgical or non-surgical procedure, but I think when you're young there are other ways you can look after your skin, and some amazing products on the market. Botox just wasn't necessary for me at this age." — Kim Kardashian. [Himdustan Times]
