Serena Williams is revealing a life-altering hack. But some may find it gross.

On Sunday, the tennis star player posted a video on her TikTok gleaming, “Ok is this totally weird??? I have to say after a week of using MY breast milk under my eye – it worked!” adding, “I’m dying to hear your thoughts. Be nice lol 🙈.”

In August, the former tennis player welcomed her baby daughter, Adira River, with her husband, Alexis Ohanian, and shared a video of herself from when she had begun her new skincare journey one week prior. The video showed the mother of two shaking a bottle of breast milk before applying it under her eyes with a tissue. In the clip, Williams said, “I completely got burned under my eye… Don’t ask.”

She explained in the video that the sunburn was a causal effect of applying retinol- a popular skincare active used to repair and tighten skin- but on the flip side, it made it sensitive to the sun.

She then said, “It works for my kid,” adding, “They say put breast milk on everything and I have a lot extra, so I’m gonna try it for a week or so and see how it goes.”

Seemingly, she claimed that it worked, although she did not share any visual proof of the same. Joining her in the breastmilk healing power gang, Halsey also spoke up about the benefits of using breast milk to heal skin, per Page Six.

In April, the singer told Nylon Magazine, “It’s so full of antioxidants and good fats and stuff that speed up the healing process,” further calling it the “best skincare ingredient.” The singer, who welcomed son Ender in July 2021, spoke about how conscious she suddenly became about the products she used on her face. She stated, “When your baby is kissing you or snuggled up against you, you become hyper-cognizant of what’s on your face.”
