A mommy influencer in the U.K. with a glowing complexion credits it to a surprising part of her skincare routine. Si-Si Shoffman has shared her hack for her radiant skin with her 14-thousand Instagram followers, explaining that she uses breast milk on her face for its anti-aging properties. She had a baby last summer and has been using her own breast milk on her face ever since.
In the clip, the mom of one applies it to her face with a syringe then rubs it in before applying moisturizer. “Attention all mamas and mamas to be … it’s called liquid gold for a reason,” the caption reads. Breast milk is known for its impressive properties beyond nourishing babies, like treating cracked nipples in nursing moms, but using it on the face is something most of us never thought to try before.
Shoffman also lists the reasons we should be using it on our skin, including “it’s magically anti-inflammatory” and “it naturally contains growth factors which essentially make the skin regenerate, meaning it’s anti-aging.” The 30-year-old also says she’s her “very own self-made magical Scottish unicorn.”
