Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but it typically comes with a few setbacks, a major one being stretch marks. They’ve kind of become synonymous with pregnancy, but they can be avoided if you act fast (and diligently). Need some advice on which of the million different products to try? Chrissy Teigen just shared which one she swears by.
Her plan of action? La Mer The Concentrate. The Concentrate is packed with La Mer’s signature Miracle Broth, which promises to sooth dry, fragile skin and create a strong and radiant renewal. Wow, sounds great. The only setback? It costs $440… But look on the bright side: It comes with free shipping! If this magical serum isn’t in your maternity budget, Allure notes that any kind of moisturizer can do wonders to help prevent stretch marks. Our vote? Lather on some cocoa butter topped with Bio Oil, and call it a day.
Chrissy has been super transparent about the stretch marks she’s already rocking on Instagram. Last year, she shared a photo on Instagram of her legs which she captioned, “Stretchies say hi!” Chrissy tells Allure, “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.”
