Blast Your Wrinkles and Stretch Marks With Breastmilk!

April 19, 2015 2 min read

When my son was born, I found myself pumping lots and lots. I started an emergency freezer stash of breastmilk to use just in case my milk dried up or my son was unable to latch. DSC_1000 According to La Leche League, storage guidelines for breastmilk in a deep freezer is anywhere between 6-12 months. Anything older, should be discarded. ddd As time went on, we never needed the stash so I donated some, but what was left over was expired. So, I got to researching.. and sure enough, there are plenty of uses for expired breast milk! I hated to see it go to waste so I used up as much as a I could for various things... including skin care! Breastmilk has been found to be super beneficial for:
  • Eczema
  • Rash
  • Skin Cleanser
  • Bee and wasp stings
  • Chapped lips
  • Poison ivy
  • Dry skin
  • Diaper rash
  • Minor cuts and scrapes
  • Clogged tear ducts
  • Rosacea
  • Burns
Why? Due to the antibodies found in breast milk, specifically IgA, the liquid helps prevent germs from growing on the site of injury. According to University of California San Diego scientist, Dissaya Pornpattananangkul, lauric acid can help treat teenage acne, reports the Telegraph. So, I decided to give breastmilk ice facials a try. Lo and behold, my wrinkles and stretch marks started to fade away within a few weeks. Though this may be pretty gross to some, I have actually noticed the redness in my facial tone disappear since I have started doing this. I swear by it!

                The best way to do this is to fill an ice cube tray with breast milk. When you are ready to use, pop a cube out and apply to your face. If your milk is stored in actual storage bags, like mine, just thaw a bit and pop the frozen milk upward, using the bag as a sleeve-sort of like a "popsicle."

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
