"More recently, using breast milk as a skincare ingredient has received additional buzz, with Halsey announcing that it is "the best skin care ingredient ever" in an April 2023 interview with Nylon. Needless to say, when I caught wind that there was a new breast milk inspired skincare line in town, I was certainly intrigued. Often referred to as "liquid gold," breast milk is at the forefront of anti-aging skincare line Milk Made Skin. I tested the products out for two weeks—here's what you need to know..."
"BW Confidential looks at six innovative brands from milk-based skincare and cryotherapy-inspired products, to clean chili-based lip plumping."
"It’s been said that Cleopatra would take milk baths to improve the look and feel of her skin. Turns out, she was onto something. Fast forward many centuries later, and the idea of milk as a skin treatment is popular again; however, it doesn’t involve soaking in almonds, oats, or pistachios (keep those for your latte). Today, there are skin milks, specifically formulated to nourish your face and body."
"There are so many trends flying around the internet that it’s hard to know which ones actually have the chops. Take, for instance, breastmilk as skin care. Yes, you read that right. A few months ago, Halsey shared their postpartum skincare regimen, and noted that after they learned “that breast milk is the best skincare ingredient ever because it's so full of antioxidants and good fats and stuff that speed up the healing process,” they added a colostrum-infused serum from Biologique Recherche into their routine. From there, the TikToks commenced. Color us intrigued."
"Why we love it: We’d heard of breast milk referred to as “liquid gold” before, so we were intrigued by Milk Made Skin’s product collection, which uses a blend of ingredients (developed by a chemist, not from the real stuff) to provide skin with the regenerative benefits of breast milk. The creamy formula is ultra-rich for serious moisturization; the product firms and smooths while leaving skin brighter and more even."
"Our latest #BeautyBoss is Sarah Shafer, Founder of Milk Made Skin—an anti-aging skincare brand that is inspired by and mimics the nutritional benefits of breast milk with its clean, natural proprietary Milk Peptide Complex that helps achieve smooth and younger-looking skin. Shafer first discovered the powerful benefits of breast milk when she became a mother and used her own to treat her daughters’ various skin issues. She later worked with a chemist to create an innovative formula that contained the same ingredients in breast milk that were safe and clean to use in skincare products."
"OK, I'll admit it: the things I'm willing to do in the name of good skin may be getting a little out of hand. I've tried weird face-washing hacks and complete and total skin detoxes, and recently, when I heard that Halsey swore by breast milk for healing skin, I started contemplating rubbing literal breast milk on my face. When I told my friends about the idea, they thought I was losing my mind — but if it was good enough for Halsey, a celebrity, I figured it was good enough for me..."
"Following seven years of infertility struggles, Sarah Shafer had her daughter Evie in 2016. “We really thought for a long time it wasn’t going to happen for us. She was this miracle,” she recalls. “I just wanted everything to be perfect for her, and I was breastfeeding her. She had very sensitive skin with blemishes and acne. Breast milk is known as liquid gold, and I started putting it on her face, thinking it can’t hurt. I was like, ‘Oh my god, this works.’ How is this not a thing?"
