‘So, people have been commenting on my skin lately and I have to say a big reason is because of this machine,’ she said in the post, making clear it wasn’t related to an endorsement deal.

‘It’s called a pico laser and I have had three sessions on my face and now I am doing my chest for sun spots or dare I say, age spots, and pigmentation,’ she continued.

‘I have told all my friends and now I am telling you … It’s really quite incredible!’ she said, before adding,’Thanks to the chicks always. I actually can’t wait to see the full results! Eek.’

It didn’t stop there, with the approachable star then answering a number of questions from fans about the procedure, mostly related to recovery time.
