Ashley Tisdale Credits Her Clear Complexion to Being Dairy-Free for 5 Years

Ashley Tisdale‘s secret to clear skin is in her diet.

The actress and singer, 34, revealed that she’s struggled with breakouts in the past, and the one thing that has truly helped with her blemishes was cutting out dairy.

“Skin never looked so good ✨ I would love to say it’s just the products I use but I’ve been dairy free for 5 years and I swear it changed everything with my skin,” Tisdale said on Instagram alongside a video of her complexion. 

She continued, “I barely break out, I know it’s hard to give up something but when you do after awhile you barely crave it and I feel healthier.”

Lately, Tisdale’s been using Neutrogena’s Bright Boost line for her skin (she’s an ambassador for the brand), but said she doesn’t love to pile on a ton of products each night. “When it comes to products and skincare, I am not a big believer in having twenty things you need to do to your face at night. I am a big believer in quality over quantity and being very specific to what your skin’s needs are,” the star told Haute Living in December 2019.

To make sure she stays hydrated all day long (she tries to drink 1.5 liters a day) she carries “a big bottle with me throughout  so I know how much I drink.”

She added: “What you eat and finding out what you are sensitive to food wise is important, too, because your skin is a reflection of what you are ingesting. So if something breaks you out, doing a journal of what you ate that day and seeing how your skin reacts is helpful.”

Tisdale has also showed off some of the other skincare products she loves on Instagram.

Her ride or die favorites include plenty of products from La Mer (like The Moisturizing Soft LotionCrème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream and The Eye Concentrate), Sisley’s All Day All Year Essential Day Care cream and products from dermatologist Christie Kidd’s line.
