The secret of skin care! John legend has credited his beauty successes to some of his most intimate moments with his wife Chrissy Teigen.
“We shower together a lot, so as not to get too graphic,” the “Bigger Love” crooner, 44, told The cut in a Wednesday, January 25, profile, noting that their bath time habits include more time to love and care for each other.
The legend — who launched his own Loved1 skincare line earlier this month — even credits Teigen, 37, for helping him pick and choose the best products to include in the brand’s range. While the Chrissy’s Court alum played an important role in testing the ingredients. Legend’s inspiration to develop Loved1 dates back to his childhood.
“As a child you are taught to shower and put lotion on your body,” says de Voice mentor told The cut, noting the importance of moisture and hydration. “As black people, we always worry about being ashy. We had petroleum jelly, we had all the lotions, but I don’t think anyone told us that we lose moisture faster than everyone else.”
Legend also lists drinking eight glasses of water a day as one of his skin care hacks. “As a singer, I always feel like I’m killing two birds with one stone by drinking lots of water and resting because it helps my voice and my skin,” he said on Wednesday.
Taking care of his skin is something Legend and the Desire all together author – who married in 2013 – is passionate about teaching their children. The pair are proud parents of son Miles, 4, and daughters Luna, 6, and Esti, 1 week.
“[Self care] can mean loving yourself and taking care of yourself, but it also means passing those rituals on to your loved ones,” he gushed in the Snow profile. “[Bath time is] a way for us to bond with the kids and show them how to take care of themselves.”
The legend’s fresh look has long led to fan speculation that he barely ages.
“I heard that vampire rumor! It is of course not true, but I do take care of my skin,” said the EGOT winner exclusively Us weekly in June 2019. “I cleanse and moisturize and exfoliate and do all those things that I think help me stay healthy. I think I was probably blessed with some good genes too, because my parents have great skin.”
Teigen — who gave birth to rainbow baby Esti earlier this month after previously miscarrying with late son Jack — is also candid about her skincare regimen, which has changed since she first became a parent.
“Something inexplicable is happening to your skin. My skin has never been as sensitive as it is now. I used to go to town for chemical peels and extractions,” said de Lip Sync battle alum told Refinery29 in 2019. “One super indulgent thing I do is PRP blood facials with Dr Jason Diamond. They’re fun, but they don’t have to be part of my daily routine. It’s important to have a regular routine that isn’t as harsh or harsh on the skin.
