Body organs are not all internal like the brain and heart; some are external. The skin is the largest organ on the body and is external in contrast to the previous examples. It protects us from bacteria, external temperatures and damage from the UV rays emitted by the sun.
This miracle organ is practically a shield and we should repay the favour by looking after it.
Using vegan skincare is an ideal way of caring for your skin because it does not use animal testing, meaning that gentle ingredients-which have already been approved and clarified as harmless- are used instead of harsh chemicals. Vegan skin products often contain essential oils, plant based ingredients or clay. These gentle ingredients nourish the skin and protect it instead of causing irritation and reactions like the chemical counterparts would do. Plus, these nutraceuticals are also said to heal scar tissue and prevent aging, keeping that youthful complexion for many years to come.
It is also said that vegan skincare products, especially make up, are more suited to sensitive skin due to the lack of harsh chemicals and ingredients which are used in them. So if you get an itchy red face every time you think you’ve found the perfect skincare product, going vegan with your skincare could be your ticket to a stress free beauty regime!
Many vegan skincare products are also eco-friendly meaning that they use recycled materials in order to make their packaging. With all this information combined, you are protecting the environment, saving the animals and giving your chemical ridden skin a break all thanks to a vegan skincare routine. That sounds like a win-win-win, if I do say so myself.
