Queen & Slim actress Jodie Turner-Smith has revealed that breast milk has become a vital part of her skincare routine following her daughter’s birth.
“My current beauty secret is that I put breast milk in all of my face serums,” she told Vogue on Wednesday. “My skin is very sensitive, so I use a light cleanser, and then I put on a serum with aloe and breast milk that I literally squeeze right into my hands from my boob. I think it’s the lactic acid. I’ve just found that the milk has been revolutionary.”
Since giving birth to her first child with husband actor Joshua Jackson back in April, Turner-Smith says it’s been a struggle to keep her skin blemish-free.
But the new mom says she will raise her daughter to be self-confident, no matter what.
“That self-assuredness is what is going to help her navigate life,” Turner-Smith shared with the publication. “It’s important to impart to my daughter what is beautiful about her, and about who she comes from and where she comes from and what is powerful about that.”
The actress and model also weighed in on the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests. She did not take to the streets to march, instead, she used her time in lockdown to recover after giving birth.
“It doesn’t make sense that we still have to be screaming to the world that our lives matter. It doesn’t make sense that Black people are being senselessly mowed down by the police,” says Turner-Smith. “It doesn’t make sense, this country’s response to the global pandemic. It doesn’t make sense that so many people are unemployed, and the government is bailing out corporations. But what did make sense, inside of that, was the love of my family.”
