Chris Hemsworth used wife's La Mer cream to treat sunburn

Chris Hemsworth left his wife Elsa Pataky "unimpressed" when he used her $400 La Mer cream to treat his sunburn.

The 35-year-old actor - who has India, seven and five-year-old twins Tristan and Sasha with his spouse - has recalled when he lathered his "whole body" in his the expensive skincare after burning his shoulders in the sun and how she was "less than happy".

He said: "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. 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. It smells so delicious, I wanted to eat it."

Chris swears by coconut oil to keep his skin hydrated and will also use it to treat sunburn, because it's natural and much "cheaper" than La Mer's products.

He told GQ magazine: "[I] Usually just [use coconut oil] on my face. Especially when it's really dry and I'm surfing a lot, spending a lot of time in the sun. It's better for sunburn or dehydrated skin--and much cheaper--than La Mer."

The 'Avengers: Endgame' star went on to explain that he uses "natural" deodorants in his beauty regime because sprays can have a harmful effect on the environment.

He added: "I haven't used a spray deodorant for a long time due to the chemicals and the negative effects on the environment, so I tend to [use] a natural roll-on.

"But the natural ones don't always work so well, so you've gotta dig around and find the good ones. There's a couple of locally made ones here in Byron Bay that are pretty heavy. Pretty efficient."
