Long before it became a trendy Hollywood lifestyle choice, Alicia Silverstone embraced veganism. She’s meticulous about what she puts inside her body and on her skin.
"Beauty starts with the internal. I look my best and I’m glowing because of the food that I eat. You can put anything on your skin but if you don’t eat clean, it’s never going to show through your skin. When you eat this way, you glow,” she said.
If you're also looking to live a more eco-friendly life, or thinking about veganism, here are some products that Silverstone recommended.
Eating clean cleared up Silverstone's skin. "I used to have really bad acne," she said. "I changed my diet and my cystic acne went away ... Oh, it was so sad. It just went away. The dark circles went away.” But, she still relies on some clean skin care products.

Health and wellness
Silverstone's advice to consumers: “Be conscious of the products that you do use. I only use all natural products — from the cleaning supplies in my house to the laundry detergent I use to wash my clothes."

"You use the balls over and over again and they’re so much more eco. There’s so much less packaging involved," she said.
