2020 has been *ahem* an eventful one for everybody, but it's been a particularly big year for Jodie Turner-Smith. The star became a mother for the first time in April, welcoming her first child with husband Joshua Jackson, a daughter named Janie, at home. 

Right now, the model and actress is about to star as Anne Boleyn in an upcoming drama that follows the last few months of her life as King Henry VIII's second wife. The director recently described her as the best person for the job and that she was "very proud" of their work together, saying: "I feel very strongly that we have the best actress for the role."

While we love Jodie Turner-Smith for her acting skills, we're also equally interested in hearing about the contents of her beauty routine. And thankfully, she has shared some insight into what that looks like. 

Speaking to Vogue in September of this year, Turner-Smith revealed a pretty unique ingredient for sensitive skin that features in her everyday skincare regime – her own breast milk. 

"Ever since I had my baby, my current beauty secret is that I put breast milk in all of my face serums," she explained. 

"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."

As for what she reckons makes this particular method so effective, she says: "I think it's the lactic acid. I've just found that the milk has been revolutionary."

While it's not a method that everybody can try for themselves, there's no denying Jodie has incredible skin and so clearly this trick is working for her.

It's safe to say that skincare doesn't get much more bespoke than this!
