It seems like every celebrity has their own little unique trick to keep their skin looking healthy. Beyond the creams and skin care treatments, many make dietary changes to promote better skin health. Natalie Portman credits her vegan diet for clearing up her acne breakouts, Alicia Keys went dairy-free for better skin and Kate Bosworth has confessed that going sugar-free has made a big impact on her skin. Now, Kate Winslet says she, too, has made tweaks to her diet to keep her skin looking fresh and glowy before a red-carpet event.

Eating the correct balance of foods can help your skin stay clear and supple, and avoiding certain foods can also make a big difference in how your skin looks. When asked what she does to get ready for a big event, Winslet recently shared with British Vogue how at age 42 she maintains her ever-youthful glow by cutting out two major staples from her diet. “I try and stay away from salt and alcohol before an important occasion and throw a few green smoothies together in a Nutribullet,” said Winslet. “Whilst my life would be too dull without salt and the odd glass of wine, we all know that cutting them out makes for a healthier complexion. At least it does in my case.”
She also revealed that before she makes any tweaks to her diet, she follows two major skin care principles: sleep and water. “First off, I have to say right away that sleep and health play a big part in looking fresh. If I’m over-tired or stressed, no amount of makeup and hair can disguise the impact of that on one’s face. So if I know I have to look red-carpet-ready for something, I do try and look after myself in the few days running up to that moment. Nothing fancy or expensive, but I’m 42 now, so I can’t get away with murder anymore! So my top tip would be water. Water, water, water. Keep the body hydrated and the skin will follow suit.”
