That being said, Botox is only FDA-approved and available for patients 18 and older." It's also worth underlining that Botox is not safe for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding and, those with a neurological disease, need clearance from their neurologist.

While gyms are opening in some cities, going to indoor ones is still considered a "dangerous activity" in many states. Given the current situation and the fact that there are a flood of Instagram Live and online streaming options, many people are now opting to sweat at home (a trend that's great for wallet health, too!).
