Chris Hemsworth once annoyed his wife Elsa Pataky by using her $400 (£320) La Mer face cream on his sunburn.
The Avengers: Endgame star has opened up about how he is a huge fan of skincare products in an interview with U.S. GQ magazine after stealing his actress wife’s moisturisers on a regular basis.
However, one incident with the luxe beauty staple left Chris in the bad books.
“She uses a lot of La Mer products, which, you know, cost a small fortune, so she’s less than happy when I use that face moisturiser over my whole body,” the 35-year-old told the publication. “I found out the hard way when I used her $400 cream for a sunburn one time. That wasn’t the best option.
“My shoulders were sunburnt one time and I lathered up my shoulders with some La Mer products not realising how expensive they were. She wasn’t really that impressed.”
As well as being an excellent remedy for sunburn, Chris quickly became a fan of La Mer, and now tries to include it in his own skincare regime.
“It smells so delicious, I wanted to eat it,” the Australian hunk joked.
The Men in Black: International star also relies on coconut oil as a much cheaper moisturiser for his sun-ravaged skin.
“Especially when it’s really dry and I’m surfing a lot, spending a lot of time in the sun,” he shared. “It’s better for sunburn or dehydrated skin – and much cheaper – than La Mer.”
The skincare company was started after founder and German-born scientist Dr. Max Huber suffered burns in a lab accident, and he created a remedy – called Creme de La Mer – using fermented sea kelp, minerals and natural ingredients that became the base of the iconic skincare line.
