We asked self proclaimed Vegan Princess Sophie from @positivesoph to share with us the benefits of switching to natural skincare.
Switching to vegan and natural skincare products will transform not only the health and appearance of your skin, but also the impact you have on the environment. By purchasing and using products that are free from unnatural chemicals and animal testing and instead utilize natural ingredients such as oils and plant extracts, you’ll find yourself glowing from the inside out.
By using natural oils to hydrate your skin, especially when rich with omega-9 fatty acids - such as Crambe Oil, you’re allowing your skin to be hydrated and nourished deeper than any artificial chemical could. In addition to this, natural oils and plant extracts will reduce the risk of breakouts and skin problems as they won’t clog up your pores, but instead hydrate and nourish from the inside out.
Plant extracts and natural oils also contain antioxidants, which not only help reduce the impacts of your skin’s daily exposure to substances in the air, but also help brighten, nourish and moisturize your skin. Ingredients such as pomegranate extract and coconut oil help to protect, brighten and smooth your skin, resulting in a radiant glow that is free from any harsh exposure to chemicals.
By choosing natural, vegan skincare products you are assured that all ingredients are safe to use on your skin, as they don’t need to go though the animal testing process. The combination of a cruelty free, natural skincare routine, that allows you to live a compassionate lifestyle whilst also achieving youthful, glowing skin is just one of the reasons to adopt a vegan, natural lifestyle.
