It seems like each and every day Chrissy Teigen finds a way to make us love her more. Just a few days ago, a photo of her breast pumping on the way to dinner went viral for all the right reasons. Now, it's her goofy self-care routine that's sparking the internet's interest.
The Cravings author kept it real in her latest Instagram post, as always. In it, she's pictured sitting over a vagina steamer with a towel over her legs, a heating pad on her neck, and a white mask covering her face. "Face mask / heat pad / vagina steam," she wrote in the caption. "No I don't know if any of this works but it can't hurt right? *vagina dissolves.*"
What is vagina steaming, you ask? Basically a miniature throne of, well, steam, that's supposed to balance your hormone levels, cleanse your uterus, and release energy. Gwyneth Paltrow is all about it and praised it in a Goop article back in 2015. Does it work? No clue. Is it good for you? Perhaps not.
San Francisco-based OB/GYN Jennifer Gunter advises against it. "A vagina does not need to be detoxed. Ever. The vagina is a self-cleaning oven. That is why we have good bacteria," she writes. In other words, don't try to fix what isn't broken, ya'll.
So, um, if you want to emulate Teigen's self-care routine, maybe wait for her update on the results? Knowing her, she'll probably post one.
Regardless, thank you, Chrissy for this A+ post and for always making us smile even though the country is falling apart.
