Chrissy Teigen's Skincare Secret Will Shock You

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen is the celebrity we didn't know we needed and that we can't live without. She always says what she's thinking, she doesn't back down to Twitter trolls, and did we mention she's a killer mom, wife and worker?

At the LA launch of her collaboration with BECCA Cosmetics, Chrissy talked beauty essentials, plastic surgery rumors and reality TV (can you say dream conversation?!), and she admitted one shocking beauty faux-pas that she commits ALL the time:

She doesn't wash her face.

In an interview with Allure, Chrissy admitted that she doesn't wash her face at night, which is arguably the biggest no-no that beauty bloggers warn you against. She said, "I don't wash it at night. I'll maybe use a face wipe, but before bed I don't wash it. I go to bed feeling sexy, and then I wake up looking like a raccoon, and I'm like, Wow, this needs to be taken care of. But I do wash it every morning. I'm psycho about my skin."

Chrissy went on to talk about a few other things related to beauty and health, like how husband John Legend steals all of her face lotion:  

"I have two of them, and I try to trick him into using the less expensive one. I have my Natura Bisse Diamond line, which is expensive, and I work hard for it. So I have to hide it from him. Then I have my others where I'm like, 'Use that one; it's way better.' He's a guy, so he's heavy-handed with it and slops it on. I'm always like, 'Are you kidding me? Use the tiny stupid spoon.'"

Isn't not washing your face really bad for your skin?

Most people would say yes. If you don't wash your face at night, a lot of bad things can happen, like breakouts, clogged pores, makeup smeared pillows, premature aging, unbalanced skin (too dry or too oily) and more.

Because Chrissy Teigen is a superhero, she probably deals with all of those things and STILL finds a way to look like a total queen on the red carpet. But we're guessing the rest of us should probably wash our faces at night.
