Chrissy Teigen has always been transparent with fans. Whether she’s revealing her struggle with postpartum depression, posting photos of her stretch marks, or sharing her thoughts on being blocked by the president, she has always kept it real. Thus, it comes as no surprise that the internet is praising her for once again for being relatable.
On Monday afternoon, Teigen shared a Snapchat video to Twitter that every girl who’s ever had a menstrual cycle can relate to: She showed what her skin looks like during that time of the month. Yes, even models break out.

“This is my skin on my period,” Teigen said while turning her head to show the red marks. “Look at it. It’s so angry.”
In case you didn’t know, there is this magical thing that happens to women once a month. It’s magical because the amount of side effects are out of this world. There is the blood that flows from the vagina, and then there are the headaches, nausea, cravings, cramps, and the pimples. Needless to say, Teigen’s “period skin” had the internet saying, “It me.”
Same girl I always break out on my chin 😭

Twitter users also commended Teigen for being a role model for others.
As the father of 2 young girls, it's reassuring to see a LITERAL model who is comfortable in her own imperfections. A sincere thank you!

One of the reasons I admire you. You don't care to be admired for your looks. You got a big brain. Me, too.
