Kylie Jenner had a bit of a health scare while visiting Peru this week. The reality star posted photos and videos of herself wearing an oxygen mask after suffering the side effects of being in a city with high altitude like Lima, Peru.
The makeup mogul is reportedly there with her mother Kris Jenner on behalf of Smile Train, which is a non-profit organization that helps give free surgeries to children in different countries who want to repair a cleft palate/lip. While her trip had such a meaningful intention behind it, Kylie found herself being unable to breathe because of the altitude and a doctor was called in to treat her.
She shared the moment via Snapchat where she is seen lying in bed with a red Adidas tracksuit and her friend Jordyn Woods is by her side the whole time. A doctor brought in an oxygen gas tank to her room and had her put on a mask.
In the video, Kylie is heard saying: "So how long do I breathe in this?"
"Kylie is getting oxygen," a guy in the video says. He explained that this is something that happens usually to people who are not used to dealing with the altitude in certain parts of the world saying: "So at this altitude at 11,000 feet above sea level, you can feel nauseous have headaches, so Kylie is getting oxygen so she feels better she was kind of feeling, ehhh."
Oh, no! Getting sick while on a trip can be so awful especially since was there for such a great cause. We are sure this moment of sickness did not take away from all the good moments she spent with the children. This is not the first time Kylie works with the org since last year she released a limited edition shade on her Lip Kit called "Smile" and all of the profits were donated to the organization.
