February is vegan cuisine month. It’s no secret that you are what you eat… And some claim a vegan diet is the secret to glowing skin. At Woman Beauty we believe that you should enjoy life, including the food and drinks you love. Just remember everything in moderation!
Nevertheless, because there is a school of thought that plant-based eating is good for your skin… In this article, we thought we’d share three reasons why going vegan could have a positive effect on your complexion.
A vegan diet and glowing skin:
Dairy… Not always a delight:
For anybody that suffers from acne, it may come as no surprise that serious breakouts come after an overload of ice cream! Dairy can be a major culprit when it comes to skin congestion. As dairy is eliminated in a vegan diet it can improve the complexion of those prone to acne.
If you have suffered from acne historically and need to address any associated scarring, talk to us about Dermapen 4.
Root vegetables and radiant skin:
Carrots and beetroot are rich in beta-carotene. But this red-orange pigment is not exclusive to root vegetables. You’ll also find it in pumpkin, squash, citrus and even greens like kale and spinach. Beta-carotene’s antioxidant properties can give you a healthy glow. But before you start munching on raw carrots with gay abandon, remember that too much beta-carotene can have adverse effects, giving your skin a yellowish tinge.
Banish fine lines with fruit and vegetables:
A plant-based diet is chock full of antioxidants. These are the critters that chase away the free radicals that can cause premature ageing.
Additionally, soy foods (a staple part of vegan diets) including tofu, edamame, and tempeh increase levels of hyaluronic acid. It’s hyaluronic acid that helps your skin retain water and stay plump and youthful!
