After hearing lots of bad thing about Diary intake and acne and my own experience of improving skin when I took dairy out of my diet on the whole I have now started drinking rice milk.

Is this better for the skin and are there any complications that can crop up with this. Its gluten free so I see no problems there.

Thats what I drink. You should try kefir, its a milk product, but it's pretty damn good for you. And shouldn't break you out.

If you have dairy sensitivites then rice milk would be better. It's also free of the various problems of soy milk.

Also, try almond milk. It has a alot of vitamin E which is always good. It also tastes amazing. You'll wonder why you ever drank cow's milk in the first place.

There is also oat milk, but I've never tried it so I can't recommend it.

Homemade oat milk is great. May or may not have gluten in it. Just soak oats overnight, then blend with 4 cups water.

Soy milk I have started drinking and like because it has a similar macronutrient makeup as regular milk, and rice milk is mostly carbohydrates and high glycemic. I think the problems of soy milk are overstated and a lot of the inflammatory statements about it are based on inconclusive or irrelevent research, for instance research on animals that have systems completely different from humans. However I'd stress if you do go the soy route, get organic, because soy is one of the most GMO'd crops. Naturally Preferred Plain is the best tasting soy milk I've found yet, though it does have a small amount of added sugar.

Almond milk is great too but I eat so much almonds as it is that I really don't need another source. The almond milk I got in stores had rice milk in it as a sweetener though. Rice Dream is a good rice milk brand.

Whatever route you go it's going to take a little getting used to, because you're drinking a beverage that looks like milk but tastes a little different, but once you're used to it you won't go back.
