Plant Based Skin Care: 5 Reasons Why You Should Switch
Looking after your skin as you grow older is important, so much so that anti-aging products and services are now worth $19 billion. To achieve that youthful glow and prevent premature aging, most people choose to adopt a plant-based diet with high levels of vitamins and minerals—and that includes their skin care regimen. This is because adopting a plant-based diet has many benefits not just for the body, but also for the skin.
Going vegan and using plant based skin care can help reduce inflammation, prevent redness, and even treat acne because of all the antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables. A plant based diet does more than just keep you healthy; it helps give your skin a vibrant glow by using natural ingredients that do not have any side effects or chemicals.
Here are 5 important reasons why you should switch to a plant based skin care system:
Less Need for Prescription Medicated Skin Care Treatments
If you have eczema or psoriasis, you are probably aware that there are prescription medications you can take to help treat it. However, these medications can be harmful to your liver, kidneys, and stomach. A plant based diet is proven to reduce inflammation and redness in the skin, which can help treat psoriasis and eczema. Not only does it do this, but it does so without the harmful side effects that come with prescription medication.
It's Safer for Animals
Many people who go vegan do so because they care about the environment and the animals; they want to protect them from being exploited and used for food and other products. A plant based diet is one that doesn’t include any animal products. This means you’ll have no need to use products that contain animal byproducts such as honey and beeswax. For example, beeswax is often used to create a creamy texture in lotions, but it comes from honeybees and is therefore not vegan. Honey is also used in some skin care products to help moisturize the skin. A plant based skin care system will give you more options as they are free of any animal products.
Natural Ingredients Are Safer and More Effective
Some skin care products can actually be harmful to your skin, with many containing harmful chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, and artificial fragrances. A plant-based skin care system uses natural ingredients that are proven to be safer and more effective. For example, aloe vera is an ingredient found in many skin care products, but not all of them are vegan. A plant based system will use aloe vera juice without any harmful chemicals.
You’ll Be Doing Good for The Environment
Animal testing is used in many skin care products, and that is a big reason why you should make the switch to a plant based skin care system. Not only are you doing something that is ethically right, but you are also doing something good for the environment.
Plants are More Antioxidant Rich
When you eat a balanced diet high in fruits and vegetables and when you use plant derived ingredients, you are guaranteed to reap the rewards of an antioxidant rich lifestyle and therefore have much better looking, healthier skin. A plant-based diet will increase your vitamin and mineral intake, which will provide your skin with the nutrients it needs to be healthy. A high vegetable and fruit diet will help you on your journey to preventing wrinkles, sun spots and the signs of aging.
