RECIPE: Plant Based Milks For Healthy Skin

There is so much around at the moment about dairy and how it is not that great for us. As a facialist, I have seen the damage it can do to skin for many years (mostly through damaging the gut due to poor digestion, along with affecting our hormones).

I no longer have dairy in my diet (except a little cheese now and again) and so always opt for a nut mylk option instead of the dairy version.

If you start reading the back of the cartons though, you will notice that some dairy free milks contain a wide range of chemicals and also sugar. I would say these are a no-no and instead create your own milk at home.

I now use dairy-free milks to replace milk in lots of things including pancakes, smoothies and porridge.

Almond Milk - 1 litre

Almond milk is an excellent source of vitamin A to help nourish the skin and keep it healthy. A great option over cows milk which is known to cause a wide range of skin problems including acne, eczema and rosacea
