Whenever Chrissy Teigen posts a selfie or steps out on a red carpet, we always find ourselves asking this one question: "What is her skincare routine?" Teigen is known for her gorgeous, glowing complexion, and in 2020, she dropped a tutorial on her Instagram story on how she achieves it.
In her story, the author and entrepreneur highlighted the two products she reaches for every night to refresh her skin. Teigen kicks off her regimen by cleansing her entire face with Eyeko’s Mascara Off Wipes ($9). But, the real star of her skincare routine is the Le Prunier Plum Beauty Oil ($72).
Teigen was introduced to the facial oil by makeup artist Nova Kaplan and claims it’s the secret to her plump, supple, and even skin. "I thought she was giving me a sample of something her friend made, but it turns out it's real and for sale," Teigen said on her Instagram story. "It is 100% pure plum oil made in California and I use it all day. If I'm not wearing makeup, I just put it on and let my face soak it up."
Teigen shared that after she applies the plum oil all over her face she will sometimes apply a face cream afterward to lock in the benefits of the oil. "I wanted to share it because it changed me,” Teigen said. "It’s holy. It is amazing."
After seeing how radiant Teigen’s skin looked after slathering on the plum oil, we’re convinced of its magic (she actually uses the word to describe the oil in the videos). But don't just take her word,
If you need more, we’ve broken down the benefits of plum oil and all the reasons you should add it to your skincare routine below.
- UV Sunscreen Booster: Plum oil naturally fortifies and protects your skin barrier from the sun and solar UV radiation, thanks to its high polyphenol content, according to Dermatologist Michele Green, MD.
- Brighten skin: When tested in clinical trials, the Le Prunier Plum Beauty Oil was shown to significantly brighten skin tone, according to the brand.
- Protects from free radicals: Plum oil contains a rich blend of antioxidants, nourishing omega fatty acids 6 and 9, and powerful polyphenols, all of which are known to protect your skin from free radicals.
- Heals and hydrates skin: The oil is rich in pro-Vitamin A and E, which work to promote healing and boost hydration.
