In the footage shot by her mum, John Legend's wife sits cross-legged in her garden wearing only a towel, and tips milk all over her "burning" body.

Appearing on VH1 show Big Morning Buzz Live on Thursday (02Apr15), she was asked to explain her actions by host Nick Lachey and said, "I was making bacon-wrapped jalapenos and then I took a shower and then I rubbed all over my body and my entire body went in flames, basically."

She took to Twitter and asked followers how to get rid of the burning sensation all over her body and some replied and told her to bathe in milk.

Teigen says, "I was like, 'Would it really help on your hoo-ha (genitals)?' and it did. It works."
