Our notion about stretch marks remain pretty firm. We all hate them. We shy away from showing them and go to all lengths to remove the ugly marks from our body.
But it is natural for women, and even men to have stretch marks on their body. When skin gets stretched beyond its elastic limit, these marks appear on the body permanently. Even celebrities, who flaunt their picture perfect bodies have them and that’s what Chrissy Teigen, 29 year old model showed us.
Chrissy Teigen, is not the only celebrity with stretch marks. Very few celebrities with stretch marks have the courage to own them. But Chrissy got a phenomenal response from women across the world when they saw her post saying – “Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!”
Later that week Chrissy Teigen appeared on the Meredith Vieira show and explained the reason behind her Instagram post. She said, “I actually am working on a cookbook and I was bumping around in the kitchen and the door handle would just nick me every single time. And I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises and then I saw the stretch marks in there.”
Chrissy Teigen continued, “And I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn’t feel like doing it anymore – and I’m never doing it again, because I think we forget what normal people look like now.The standard is so ridiculous. I mean, people are nip-tuckingIt’s gotten to a point where they’re not smoothing their skin anymore. They are actually changing the shape of their body and everybody else – nobody can compare to that when you’re fixing yourself so much. It’s so unfair,
