Chrissy Teigen is latest celebrity to try vaginal steaming, says 'it can't hurt'
The model has become very candid in her recent social media posts, and the latest one is no exception as she shared that she was trying the popular practice of "vagina steaming."
Since giving birth to her son, Miles, in May, Chrissy Teigen has become even more open about what she shares with her fans, not quite embracing the "too much information" line most others judge their sharing on.
Recently, she took to Instagram to share a photo of herself undertaking the practice of "vagina steaming," while also giving herself a face mask and applying a heat pack to her neck.
"face mask / heat pad / vagina steam no I don’t know if any of this works but it can’t hurt right? *vagina dissolves*" she captioned the shot
Needless to say, it's not exactly what one would call her best look.
But Teigen has been all about the honesty lately, something that has earned her plenty of love from fans who are tired of celebrities pretending they always look absolutely perfect.
Unfortunately for Teigen and other celebrities who swear by vagina steaming, doctors don't exactly agree with their encouragement of the practice.
In 2016, Jennifer Gunter, an obstetrician/gynaecologist from San Francisco, warned against it.
“Claims that [‘vaginal steams’ or ‘cleanses’] can somehow impact vaginal or uterine health are not biologically plausible,” Gunter wrote. “A vagina does not need to be detoxed. Ever. The vagina is a self-cleaning oven. That is why we have good bacteria.”
After giving birth to her son, Teigen has taken to warning others of the not-so-cute-and-cuddly side of motherhood. This included sharing a photo of herself wearing post-partum mesh underwear while feeding Miles.
I can confirm postpartum life is 90% better when you don't rip to your butthole. Baby boy: 1 point. Luna: 0— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 20, 2018
She also took to Twitter on one occasion to share with her fans some of the horrors of childbirth, and that her son was a little kinder to her body than her 2-year-old daughter, Luna, had been.
