Why do celebrities, like stunning actress Halle Berry have that certain glow? It's because she, like so many other celebrities, regularly go to spas from the tip of Long Island to the deserts of the Southwest to the coast of California. Perhaps that explains how she can even look great as a down and out discriminated against widow mom in "Monster's Ball"!
