Your skin is your largest organ, but it is often treated the most harshly. It gets scrubbed, scraped, bruised, and stretched, and little is given back to nourish it. Apologetically, consumers hit the stores to find the products that will most rejuvenate their skin, but a lot of those purchases are made blindly by people who are unsure what the complicated chemicals in the ingredient list will do to them or the planet. An easy way to simplify the search for excellent skin care products is by limiting the hunt to green and vegan products. Not only are they better for the planet, but they can do wonders for your skin.
The body is made to absorb much of what is put into it and on it. In fact, the body sucks 60% of what is placed on the skin into the bloodstream without any sort of filtration. While kidneys help keep out toxins from foods, there is nothing to interrupt the effects of man-made toxins placed on the skin in the form of lotion, soap, or makeup. That is why products like vegan soap can be so good for your overall health.
After all, the body itself is made from natural elements. It only makes sense to limit what it absorbs by slathering it in products that are clean and nature-based. Simple, natural, and vegan ingredients are additives that bodies are more likely to know how to handle.
Speaking of what your skin can and cannot handle, nearly half, or 44.6%, of American adults admit to having sensitive skin. This complicates the pursuit of the right product as you can never predict how man-made chemicals will affect delicate skin.
Better your odds by opting for vegan beauty brands. With vegan products, there is less risk of irritation or clogged pores. Since these items are made without animal-derived products, there is a reduced risk of an allergic reaction. By limiting your search for beauty and health products to vegan items, you are increasing the odds that your skin will respond positively.
Nobody is perfect, and unfortunately, nobody’s skin is perfect either. With so many items on the market, it can seem impossible to find the creams and soaps that will kick your beauty regime into high gear. Give your skin what it has been yearning for: natural, vegan, and clean ingredients. When shopping green, you know that your body finally gets what it has been yearning for.
