Skin Care – The Vegan Way

What is vegan and what does it mean?

Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or poultry. Vegans, in addition to being vegetarian, do not use other animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy products, honey, leather, fur, silk, wool, cosmetics, and soaps derived from animal products.

With this practice, veganism carries at least three potential advantages. First is avoidance of animal mistreatment and slaughter. Second is elimination of certain health risk. The third is reduction of environmental footprint.

The vegan diet

A vegan diet includes all grains, beans, legumes, vegetables and fruits and the nearly infinite number of foods made by combining them. Vegan meals can also be rather simple and humble, such as a lentil soup, vegetable soups, or even a big, raw vegetable salad will do. Dairy products are usually replaced with plant milks. Scrambled eggs can be swapped for scrambled tofu, whereas raw eggs can be replaced with flaxseeds or chia seeds in various recipes.

With this healthy, plant-based foods that vegans consume, their body absorbs all the right nutrients that the skin needs in order to grow, develop, and repair.

Here are some of the few vegetarian foods that can help keep you looking young and your skin at its finest.

1. Almonds

Almonds are packed with vitamin E, an antioxidant that defends against sun damage. Nuts also help us maintain a healthy weight. Those who eat several servings a week are less likely to gain extra pounds.

2. Chia Seeds

The Omega-3 fatty acids in chia can help aid the healing process of irritated blemish wounds, as well as protect the outer layer of skin from bacteria.

3. Watermelon

Not only a great source of hydration but also rich in potassium and vitamins A, C, B and lycopene, the antioxidant that renders the fruit its deep red color.

4. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are also rich in Lycopene, the compound that gives tomatoes their rich color. It is a powerful antioxidant that eliminates skin-aging free radicals from ultraviolet exposure. Fruits and vegetables that are rich in carotenoids also color our skin with a healthful glow.

5. Spinach

Loaded with most useful vitamins like Vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin K as well as vital minerals, this vegetable plays an important role in skincare.

Eat your way to healthy, glowing, acne-free skin. Stay healthy, animal loving and happy all the time!

Protect your skin from harmful elements found in your shower water. Chlorine,  pesticides and heavy metals aggravate skin dryness which may lead to other skin impurities.
