Teigen gets real about her beauty routine.
Chrissy Teigen has been highly-praised for thwarting the traditional Hollywood patina in favour of depicting herself in a more honest manner. Social media has effectively allowed the model and Lip Sync Battle host to give the general public a behind-the-scene's look at her life, which may not always be glamorous.
On Monday, Teigen posted an image on Instagram of her beauty routine that includes a "face mask / heat pad / vagina steam," before admitting that she is still a little skeptical if any of these treatments will work.
Gwyneth Paltrow has gone on record to speak of the benefits of vagina steaming. "My friend Ben brought me and I was like, ‘You are out of your f—– mind. What is this?’ But then by the end of it I was like, ‘This is so great.’ Then I start to do research, and it’s been in Korean medicine for thousands of years and there are real healing properties. You sit on what is essentially a mini-throne, and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al. It is an energetic release — not just a steam douche — that balances female hormone levels. If you’re in L.A., you have to do it."
Doctors have criticized Paltrow for promoting such a service, and encourage the general public to consult their physician before undergoing such treatment.
