Chrissy Teigen Shares Her Stretch Mark Routine And It’s Quite Costly
Stretch marks plague women of all ages. Basically, you’re never too old or too young to feel the wrath of its unsightly damage that can do a number on your self-confidence.
Like many of us, Chrissy Teigen also didn’t escape womanhood unscathed, and she’s been a lot more vocal about it than other women in the limelight. Just last year, the slender, statuesque supermodel embraced her stretch marks via Instagram, snapping a flick on them in their full, unedited glory.
I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn’t feel like doing it anymore—and I’m never doing it again, because I think we forgot what normal people look like now,” she told TV host Meredith Vieira.
Now, nearly six months into her pregnancy, the mommy-to-be has decided to prevent more “stretchies” from showing up during the next few months. “I love how I’ve gone about my whole stretch-mark lotion routine,” Teigen told Cosmopolitan. “I am so lucky that I have a relationship with La Mer, because I lather this stuff on. It is no joke. I wanted to make sure I did it because I am a stretch-mark girl, so I knew that I would get it pretty badly. I wanted to make sure I started it before I started noticing them. So every single day — it’s about 15 to 20 minutes of my day — I sit and justrub this La Mer.”

While most of us have stretch marks, but not necessarily long paper like Chrissy to cop La Mer’s Concentrate (that starts at $340.00 for a 1 oz.bottle), it’s good to think of it as a invest item to ease your woes.
“It’s the most luxurious thing I do in my entire life,” Chrissy continued. “So I do that and then I do a layer of their body cream and then I’ll actually pick it out from under my fingernails, that’s how liquid gold it is, and put that part on my face. I do not spare a drop.”
