Chrissy Teigen is synonymous with many things — her sense of humor, political activism, love of food and wildly successful cookbooks — but lately, the A-lister has been especially proud of her skin.

The 34-year-old took to Instagram July 6 and shared that she’s been really digging her complexion as of late.

“I will admit I am def proud of my skin lately and feeling myself!” she said.

Of course, true to form, Teigen shared the products she uses to get her face in tip-top shape. No secrets here!

While most of the products Teigen touts are wildly pricey — she copped to using Creme De La Mer and Concentrate, which runs for $180 and $370, respectively — she also shared that she has two go-to products that don’t break the bank.

For starters, she revealed she uses “a steady stream” of Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips on her nose and chin. The strips are designed to unclog pores and reduce blackheads, and they’re just $6 right now — 26 percent off the original price of $8.

However, Teigen’s real miracle-worker — the product she calls “one of [her] most important” — are Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads, $17 at Sephora.

“So important for on and around my nose and chin,” she wrote on Instagram. “You’ll notice a huge difference!!”

The pads consist of two patented steps. The first step is to exfoliate and smooth using potent AHA and BHAs, which help treat signs of aging and support natural cell renewal. After waiting two minutes, you apply step two, an anti-aging neutralizer, which uses retinol and resveratrol to protect the skin and get the most anti-aging benefits. Both products hydrate and smooth the skin.

The magic of the peels is just how easy they are to use. No messy masks, no rinsing, no sticky feeling. It only takes a couple of minutes, and is almost too easy to incorporate into either your morning or evening routine. One thing to note: It does sting a tiny bit, according to shoppers, but that’s the acid working its magic.

“I used this stuff for two nights and it has helped significantly with skin texture, acne and dark spots,” one Sephora shopper shared. “Like wow.”

“I’m impressed,” another added. “I have heard of peels before and I haven’t tried any until now. It really smooths the skin and makes it look bright and clean.”

While the standard size of the peels retails for $88, you can get a value pack of five peels (that’s five sets of peels, so you’ll get five of both step one and two) for just $17. It’s a great way to try the otherwise pricey product and see if it works for your skin type before committing to the entire set. You’ll be in good company, too — the smaller set has over 40,300 hearts.

Word of warning? You might need to buy an extra set for skincare-loving hubbies:

“My husband said I looked younger and asked if he could use it too,” one shopper revealed.

Wonder if John Legend asks Teigen the same.
