An oxygen mask and bright red Adidas tracksuit was all Kylie Jenner needed on Tuesday, May 9, after experiencing altitude sickness while visiting Peru with her mom Kris.

The 19-year-old posted a video on Snapchat of her breathing into the mask, while a doctor said, “At this altitude of 11,000 feet above sea level, you can feel nauseous, have headaches — feel like you’re having the worst hangover ever. Kylie’s getting oxygen so she’ll feel better.”

Thankfully, the cosmetics mogul appears to be doing much better, and even flipped the bird in a photo with her medical technician.

Kylie and her momager are reportedly in South America to visit the Delgado Clinic as part of the reality star's work with Smile Train, a non-profit that provides free surgeries in developing countries to children born with cleft palates.

The brunette beauty even launched a special-edition lip kit called "Smile," donating 100% of the proceeds to the organization. It has allegedly raised close to $500,000, funding approximately 1,800 procedures.

Kylie's medical scare came shortly after she showed off her "natural" hair on social media, shocking fans with how little she actually has. The teen, who loves to mix and match hues, previously admitted to wearing mostly wigs while out in public.

“It's not a secret. I couldn't do [bleach] on my hair,” she recently said. “This is much easier…You know, my hair is actually to my shoulders. For me, I need to try and find a hair color that I haven't done before. There's not much left, but I'm committed to finding new options.”

Her trip to Peru also marks the first time she's been away from new boyfriend Travis Scott in weeks. The pair first got cozy at Coachella last month before confirming they're a couple at a basketball game on April 25.

We hope Kylie is back to her normal, bubbly self soon!
