Kourtney Kardashian regularly uses her website and her app to dish on her fitness and beauty routines. We know, thanks to her app, that she does 100 squats before every shower, how she combats under-eye circles, and the food she uses to detox. Now, she’s spilled (pun intended) on the drink that keeps her skin radiant and glowing.
In a new post on her site, the mother of three revealed that she keeps an intensive daily hydration routine… with an unexpected addition. “Throughout the day, I drink lots of water to help keep my skin and body hydrated,” Kardashian writes. “Also, twice a day I add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a big glass of water, which helps your body absorb other vitamins more effectively.”
Aside from containing vitamins C and B, apple cider vinegar also has acetic acid, which according to a 1999 study, helps the body absorb calcium. But moderation is the name of the game: Too much ACV can also cause tooth erosion.
And her beauty secrets don’t stop there. The reality star also sips on hot or iced green tea once or twice a day — a smart choice for those looking to keep that youthful glow alive. “The polyphenol antioxidants contained in green tea help fight inflammation and age-accelerating free radicals,” she writes.
At night, the 37-year-old maintains her radiance by taking a bath with detox salts, which she says “relaxes the body and extract toxins from your skin.” She then uses Manuka Doctor Brightening Face Oil ($43) on her “décolleté, chest, hands, and feet, ” the last of which she covers in socks to trap in moisture.
To top it all off (literally), she sleeps atop a pure silk pillowcase, like the Slip Silk Pillowcase ($79), which is great for both your skin and your hair. Buh-bye, frizz and wrinkles!
