The secret is out! Kate Hudson reveals that her gorgeous, camera-ready skin hasn’t always been easy to maintain. But last summer, she found what works: a vegan diet.
Having struggled with acne, the stunning actress said she’d tried various diets, including vegan and paleo diets, to see what the culprit could be.
“When I went vegan last summer, my skin was the best it’s ever been—skin tone, pores, everything, Hudson told Vogue in a recent interview.
Interestingly, she mentioned that her skin didn’t look as good on a paleo diet as on a vegan diet. Hudson is not currently vegan, but her clear-skin revelation is backed by several studies connecting acne with milk consumption.
Theories about milk’s tendency to cause acne range. One theory is that because the majority of milk consumed in the United States comes from pregnant cows, the pregnancy hormones increase oil production, leading to acne. Another theory suggests that like high glycemic foods, milk itself elicits an increase in insulin, leading to oil production and acne. Regardless, it’s clear that the answer to clear skin is a plant-based diet!
In addition to wreaking havoc on your skin, milk production causes immense animal suffering.
