Mum Reveals She Puts Breast Milk On Her Face To Prevent Ageing
A mum has revealed how she uses her own breast milk on her face and lists the multiple benefits it gives her, including being anti-ageing:
Si-Si Shoffman, a blogger known for her parenting and beauty tips (as well as her glowing complexion), explained how she puts some of her breast milk - aka 'liquid gold' - into syringes and incorporates the unusual product into her skin routine.
Posting the video on her Instagram account, the mum - who gave birth to her son Clayton Jagger Shoffman (CJ) last summer - wrote: "WHY I USED MY OWN COLOSTRUM ON MY FACE?! ATTENTION ALL MAMAS AND MAMAS TO BE... it's called liquid gold for a reason. Get that liquid gold ON YOUR FACE!"
She then went on to list the benefits of breast milk, adding: "Here's why;
- It's magically anti inflammatory
- It stimulates the production of normal healthy skin bacteria, which will fight any problematic bacteria (almost like your own natural probiotic)
- It can topically help any hormonal imbalances when applied on the skin
- It naturally contains growth factors which essentially make the skin regenerate meaning it's anti ageing...
"So you may think... SHE IS CRAZY... for applying that to her face.... My response is: you are for not."

Si-Si finished her post by writing: "SO BASICALLY TONIGHT MATTHEW: I am my very own self made magical Scottish unicorn.. GET YOUR LIQUID GOLD ON LADIES!"
As well as using her breast milk, Si-Si - who is from Glasgow but lives in London - also cleansed with an Obagi foaming cleanser before finishing off with a FUARAÌN Skincare moisturiser.
Commenting on her post, many people were championing her tip. One wrote: "Haha why not use it if you're willing to feed it to your baby right!"
Another added: "Well you are glowing!! What a life hack," while a third said: "Whoa that's quite interesting I didn't know about that! Will keep in mind for when the time comes."
It's worth noting - Si-Si is referring to colostrum, which is the first form of milk produced immediately after having a baby.
However, in the comments section of the video someone asks her: "Can I use breast milk instead?" To which Si-Si replies: "You can - I would mix in with your moisturiser for easy application."
So there we have it. Where can I get some bosom juice from, folks?
