Earlier this month, it was announced that Chrissy Teigen was pairing up with Tresemmé for the launch of its new Beauty-Full Volume Collection. The line includes a reverse-wash system (a prewash conditioner to smooth hair and a follow-up shampoo that keeps hair from being weighed down), plus a volumizing mousse, hair spray, and cream. We got to talk to Chrissy one on one for the occasion, and she not only told us about her love for the brand (“As a model you’re constantly thrown brands, and you want to be able to represent something you love and use or else it comes off as completely inauthentic. I’ve been a Tresemmé fan for so long”) but also shared a seriously intriguing tip: the product she’s been using to avoid adding to her “tiger stripes” during her pregnancy.
“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 us.
Her secret: La Mer The Concentrate. “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,” says Teigen.
She’s down-to-earth enough to acknowledge that this $440 serum might not be a realistic solution for every woman, but hey…if it works, it works. While you’re saving up, keep in mind that moisturizing of any sort is key to preventing stretch marks. The more pliable your skin is, the less chance there is that stretch marks will appear.
