More and more people are joining the vegan lifestyle. It is a trend that is growing in popularity, be it for moral, environmental or health reasons.
It is easy to think that it is limited to food. Still, it is a way of life that has to be taken into all areas of daily life, such as clothing, accessories and make-up; and that includes vegan skincare. The idea is to use natural ingredients, not chemical components that are harmful in the long term or involve animal abuse.
These types of products are becoming increasingly popular and readily available. They are very appealing because of their high effectiveness and the environmental benefits they have. Of course, you don’t have to be a vegan to consume these skin products or believe in that philosophy of life; it’s just a matter of paying attention to their excellent results.
Non-vegan products have harmful components, such as silicones and preservatives, which cause the skin to become addicted to these types of ingredients.In contrast, vegan skincare products lack these additives,so the skin stays healthy from the first application and has no negative long-term consequences.
Here are some products:
- Organic almond oil. Not to be confused with synthetic oil which only smells of almonds. This oil works great for removing traces of make-up, especially waterproof ones. It removes all traces and dirt that have accumulated during the day. Best of all, it deeply moisturizes the skin and can be used all over the body.
- Bentonite clay mask. The use of the facial mask is quite simple: mix it with warm water or apple vinegar, apply it to the face and wait 20 minutes for it to take effect. It is the best option to prevent the appearance of facial acne and eliminate excess oil from the skin.
- Hyaluronic acid serum. The base is made of aloe vera, which works for skin regeneration. It is an excellent product for people who want to avoid premature ageing of their skin and maintain firmness in the face in the long term. This serum should be used without any make-up on top. It can be used at night and during the day.
Not all these products are always in 100% vegan presentation. It is necessary to check if the manufacturer did not test them on animals. Not only the ingredients are essential, but also the manufacturing process.
