Alba's nutritionist Kelly LeVeque (she's Chelsea Handler and Emmy Rossum's health guru, too) is all about fighting inflammation, which can manifest itself as anything from tummy bloat to acne. And while she works with celebrities, she's become famous in her own right for her smoothie recipes. "I always turn to her for advice," Alba told Well + Good about LeVeque.

To combat skin flare-ups, LeVeque encourages Alba to drink a smoothie with omega-3 fatty acids to help hydrate, B vitamins to promote skin health, and other ingredients that repair and promote cell regeneration. Plus, with protein, fat, and fiber (three pillars of every smoothie LeVeque creates), it's enough to keep you full from breakfast to lunch.
