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.”
