River North spa to offer breast-milk facials

River North's Mud Facial Bar specializes in providing treatments for sensitive and dry skin. Customers can pop in for a number of facials that will leave them "glowing" in less than 30 minutes.

On May 15, the shop will be offering a new kind of facial treatment: breast milk. That's right, for $50 you can have your face doused in the bodily fluid of someone else's mom. 

According to Mud's president, Shama Patel, "human breast milk can help with sunburn, eczema, acne and other skin conditions." The milk in question comes from private parties with organic diets who are certified through accredited milk banks, Patel says.

"The current mother we are purchasing from needs the extra money to pay for her child's care," says Patel. "We are happy this is a win-win situation for all." 

The jury is still out on the dermal benefits of breast milk, but mom blogs have been advocating its topical use for quite some time. It is also a big hit in the bodybuilding community as a workout supplement.

Regardless, Mud wants to put the stuff on people's faces. You can sign up for your breast milk facial at the store's website
