TV star Kelly Ripa has revealed she has regular Botox injections to keep lines and wrinkles at bay. The Live! with Kelly and Michael host revealed to Elle magazine that she gets the injections every seven months because her eyelid skin rests on her lashes.I feel like [Botox] 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, 42-year-old Ripa continued. Botox is a purified protein that works by relaxing the muscles in the face that contract, causing wrinkles. However, this is not its only use and Ripa revealed she has also has Botox injections into her armpits to help prevent excess sweating. Although she cares about the way she looks and tackling the signs of ageing, the star revealed she actually has a fuss-free approach to getting ready in everyday life and is happy to walk around in a casual pair of jeans and a T-shirt, especially as it means people will not recognise her.
