Find Out Why Brooklyn Decker Plans on Using Breast Milk in Her Skin Routine

Brooklyn Decker is expecting her second baby with superstar tennis player Andy Roddick, but a new bundle of joy isn’t the only reason she’s excited. Decker plans to try some pretty unusual beauty hacks this time around with her breast milk.

“Breast milk is good for the face,” she says in an interview with Us Weekly. Decker, 30, hasn’t slathered the stuff on her face yet — she was “a little too scared to try it the first time around” — but is ready to give it a go when her daughter is born. “I might steal a little milk from this baby and see what happens,” she admits.

While using breast milk as skincare might sound a little off the wall, the 30-year-old may be onto something. According to WebMD, breast milk is high in lauric acid, a natural ingredient which can effectively treat acne. “I heard it’s a cure-all and it gets rid of zits and undereye circles,” Decker professes.

In case you’re still iffy, the Sports Illustrated veteran did open up about the more relatable issue of post-partum hair loss. The model can attest firsthand that hair does fall out — in her case, around four months post-baby.

Another new mama hair struggle? Finding the time and energy to make your hair look polished. Her tip: “Just own it, like you meant for it to look that way.” If you’re really strapped, “take your kid’s puke and run it through your bangs,” she joked.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
