My milk preferences change with my mood. I opt for oat milk when I’m feeling fancy or almond if I want to cut back on sugar—though true to my midwestern roots, I still love taking my coffee with good, old-fashioned dairy milk. But late last month, I noticed something strange happening to my skin when I switched back to skim milk from oat: my nose and the skin around it was suddenly and inexplicably beet-red.
