Why These 5 Celebs Are Obsessed With Apple Cider Vinegar

How stars use the buzzy beverage, in everything from salads to teas to a morning shot.

It may seem like celebrities have every big-name fashion designer, miracle-working-as-needed glam team, and impossibly fit trainer at their disposal. And while many swear by their dream teams to help keep them fed, fancy, and fit, some stars say the secret to their wellness success isn't a splurge-worthy spa treatment—it's apple cider vinegar, the ever-buzzy pantry staple everyone can't stop talking about.

Whether they love the tart stuff in their beauty products or as a morning wake-up ritual, here are 5 celebs who are all about the ACV.

Hilary Duff

Life with a 5-year-old son keeps Duff constantly on the go, but the Younger actress says her morning routine always includes a shot of ACV. "I'll just shoot it straight in the morning," she says. "People think it's gross, but I kind of like the taste." Hey Hilary, protect that gorgeous smile—non-diluted apple cider vinegar can wreck your teeth. A tablespoon or two into a glass of water is a better option, experts say.

The Olympic gold medalist gets it from her grandma—her ACV recipe, that is. The gymnast says she adds ACV to her morning red berry tea and adds a little lemon and honey to sweeten the otherwise tart drink. (She prefers it hot alongside a bowl of oatmeal in the a.m., but let it cool and add ice for a refreshing summer sip.)

Perry grew up in a health-oriented household, and her mom sore by apple cider vinegar, Perry tells Self. "I was drinking strange green juices and apple cider vinegar my whole childhood," Perry says. "My mom made sure that whatever was put into my body was good for my body. I really am glad for that, even though it was disgusting." Perry credits ACV for keeping her immune system in "California Gurl"-worthy shape.

Miranda Kerr

The supermodel's go-to salad is packed with veggies and healthy fats—and, of course, a splash of ACV. "I always make a big salad with finely chopped fennel, cucumber, feta cheese, baby spinach, avocado, olive oils, and a dressing of macadamia oil, apple cider vinegar, and Bragg's amino acids," Kerr tells Vogue.

The all-natural secret to ScarJo's #flawless skin? You guessed it: ACV. "If your skin is problematic or you're having a lot of breakouts, it's really healing," she tells Elle UK. "It's a little bit stinky but if you're not sleeping over at your boyfriend's it's really effective!"

Here's what happened to one Well+Good editor who set out to live—or at least drink—like the ACV-loving stars. And it's not just for sipping: Try working ACV into your dry shampoo routine.
