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


  • 1 cup almonds soaked overnight in 3 cups of water

  • 3 cups of mineral water/filtered water


  • Simply rinse the soaked almonds really well and then you can make your milk. This can be done in 2 ways...

  • The way I make it is by using my Hurom cold-pressed juicer. I add handfuls of soaked nuts and pour water into the funnel at the same time. Then drain it through a sieve

  • The other method is by blitzing your soaked nuts and fresh water in a blender and then draining the milk through a nut milk bag. This is still pretty quick too but just a bit messier.

  • Then store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Oat Milk - 1 litre


  • 1 cup oats soaked in 3 cups of mineral/filtered water for 30 minutes


  • Blitz your soaked oats and water in a blender and then drain it through a nut bag or through a fine hole sieve

  • Then store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

These are my two favourite milk options, however, I will always have some organic rice or almond milk in my pantry for emergency.
