Whether she’s creating her own version of the Bachelor on her Instagram stories (our personal fave) or Tweeting some absolutely hilarious stuff – you have to hand it to her, Chrissy Teigen gets an A* for originality, every time.
Her latest (random) venture is to do with her skin – more specifically, helping to clear what she’s calling ‘red blotchies.’ Rather than doing what most celebs would and reaching for a £100 plus face cream, serum or hitting up a Hollywood facialist, Chrissy decided to give an age old natural remedy a try: Aloe Vera. And no, we don’t mean one she got from a shop, we’re talking straight from the leaf, baby.
Why did she decide to turn to this trick of nature? Apparently, she got the idea from hairstylist Priscilla Valles. Naturally, Chrissy decided to share her encounter with the aloe plant on her Instagram. In the video, Chrissy films herself squeezing out the fresh juice and then rubbing it into red areas on her face.
Before you blast it, know that aloe has a tonne of benefits for the skin and can be used to treat a variety of things, including burns, inflammation and irritation, thanks to its soothing and calming properties.
No news yet as to whether or not the fresh aloe worked for Chrissy, but we’ll be keeping a close eye on her stories for the update. Now – does anyone know where we can get our hands on some fresh aloe vera? No? Cool, until then, we’re stocking up on the next best thing…
