— -- Kelly Ripa has a pretty simple beauty routine.

When asked about her favorite products she only named one.

"Botox," she told Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live." "That's pretty much it."

Ripa, 43, said she spends so much time in hair and makeup for her talk show-hosting job that she doesn't feel "ritualistic" about her beauty routine. However, since she began getting Botox treatment, she said, getting ready to go out has been quicker.

"It's cut my getting ready time in half," she said. "I'm not advocating for it one way or the other. I'm just saying Botox changed my life."

So how does the talk show host avoid looking constantly surprised? Moderation, she said.

"The key to everything is knowing what you look like and being a minimalist," she said. "Your cheeks are not supposed to block out your eyes when you smile!"
