This Is Chrissy Teigen’s Secret to Preventing Stretch Marks

Kim Kardashian’s greatest fear in life may be getting stretch marks, but pal Chrissy Teigen’s isn’t afraid of a few tiger stripes.

The model and cookbook author, who is currently expecting her first child with husband John Legend, has always been one to embrace her “stretchies.” But when she does need minimize the look of some of her skin blemishes, she only reaches for one item that some may consider the holy grail of all beauty products.

Her secret? La Mer The Concentrate, the serum that costs a whopping $340 per ounce.

“I come from a stretch mark–prone family—I have them all over my butt and inner thighs. Luckily, I’m with a man who could not care less about them or else I would be insecure, but during my pregnancy, it was my belly I was scared of. I knew I’d have to do something about it before I started seeing them,” she tells Allure. “La Mer The Concentrate saved my life. I’m constantly 25 minutes late to everything because my lotion regimen is that long. I put it everywhere.”

Made with Lime Tea Extract, the formula is said to soothe dry skin, diminish visible irritation, reduce redness, and lessen the look of scars. Basically, it’s the jack of all trades of beauty products — kinda like Teigen herself.
