Kelly Ripa uses botox on face and armpits, stays thin due to SoulCycle

Her face is projected on 6 million viewers' HD-TV screens practically every morning.

And Live! with Kelly and Michael host Kelly Ripa has admitted she receives Botox injections every seven months in order to keep her pretty face looking its best.

'It's the Botox. Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes,' the 42-year-old star revealed in the February issue of Elle Magazine.

'So 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.'

The three-time Emmy winner has even had injections in her armpits to prevent sweating, and she maintains her super-slim frame thanks to frequent SoulCycle spin classes.

Back when she starred on the soap All My Children, Kelly transformed lemons to lemonade whenever she received vicious, fat-shaming hate mail from fans.
