Kourtney Kardashian Drinks This Unexpected Concoction for Glowing Skin
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!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
