Serena Williams just served an all-star skincare hack.
"I completely got burned under my eye," Serena detailed in a Dec. 3 TikTok. "I was doing retinol and I have sensitive skin, I was in the sun....long story."
"It works for my kid," she explained. "They say put breastmilk on everything and I have a lot extra, so I'm gonna try it for a week and see how it goes."
In the caption of her video, Serena offered an update on her beauty experiment. "I have to say," she wrote, "after a week of using my breastmilk under my eye, it worked!"
Serena's findings aren't all that uncommon. After all, there are several perks to using breastmilk as a topical treatment, but there are also important factors to keep in mind.
"Breast milk is rich in nutrients, vitamins and protective anti-bacterial and inflammatory properties," Dr. Sherry Ross, a Los Angeles-based OB/GYN, told E! News in October. "Variables that affect breast milk composition include the health and diet of the person making it, storage and proper hygienic practices."

This isn't the first time the athlete has shared glimpses of her motherhood journey. Last year, Serena opened up about wanting to expand her family and what that meant for her tennis career.
"In the last year, Alexis and I have been trying to have another child," she wrote in an August 2022 essay for Vogue, "and we recently got some information from my doctor that put my mind at ease and made me feel that whenever we're ready, we can add to our family."
She continued, "I definitely don't want to be pregnant again as an athlete. I need to be two feet into tennis or two feet out."
Serena may have retired from tennis, but she's clearly still winning at parenthood.
Of course, Serena isn't the only celebrity to candidly discuss the healing powers of breastmilk. Keep reading to see what other A-listers have said about their breastfeeding experience.
