Why is she getting botox?

The self-proclaimed 'Lebanese brown girl with glasses' wasn't getting botox injected in her forehead or lips, however. In fact, the procedure was not of cosmetic nature at all.

The 28-year-old revealed that she got the injections in her armpits to fight off a condition she has been battling with her entire life; hyperhidrosis—or the excessive production of sweat. In a post on social media, she explained:

I've had hyperhidrosis for about five years—when my anxiety disorder got really bad is when I noticed deodorant just stopped working for me. But because I don't use deodorant—or because deodorant doesn't work for me—what I do is, two or three times a year, I just get Botox in my armpits and it shuts the sweat glands.

Before adding:

I live my life, I don't sweat through shirts, I can wear grey. I don't have to worry about stains in the middle of winter when I don't have an excuse to be sweating. So Botox in my armpits changed my life

'I couldn't be happier'

The surgeon who performed the botox injections was also the one who carried out her rhinoplasty back in June 2020 for which she says she was eternally grateful for:

THIS IS THE REAL RE-BRAND. @deepakdugarmd just changed my life and I couldn't be happier or more ready for 75+ people to stare at my side profile at my wedding. This is day 2 post-op and I have a pain scale of 0 so far. I'm gonna take y'all on this whole process with me.
