Don't you just hate having normal eyelids and sweating during a workout? So does Kelly Ripa.

The host of LIVE with Kelly and Michael has admitted to Elle magazine that she is no stranger to a little toxic injection called Botox. That's why she looks like a 25-year-old.

Here's the fun part, though: Ripa also gets the magical substance injected into her armpits to minimize sweating! That's right — she curbs sweat with Botox…

"Every seven months or so, my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes. So I feel like it makes my makeup artist's life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now," the host told the magazine.

The things a woman would do for television… Forget that Botox is the most potent toxic substance known to humanity; Ripa needs to keep those lids defying gravity.

No worries, though. She's joined the many women in the entertainment world who have indulged in a few needles to the face. What do you make of this?
