Beat the vegan blues with these great vegan makeup buys

Is this your first Veganuary? Cosmetics probably bother you less than a lack of tasty brunch options, but vegans are nothing but tedious and there are better ‘V-approved’ beauty buys available every time I write. About them. That said, the exchange is not always a transparent process.

Unfortunately, there is still no legal standard for vegan beauty, and the fastest way to make sure a brand is up to par is to look for a Vegan Society logo. It certifies that the products do not contain any animal extracts or animal by-products in the ingredients or the manufacturing process. Founded in 1990, the company subjects brands to a strict process before granting their approval. It certifies that the products do not contain any animal extracts or animal by-products in the ingredients or the manufacturing process. Beyond that, you can check out ingredients for common vegan offenders like lanolin, glycerin, snail gel, milk protein, and tallow. The availability of a product in China was once a red flag, but the country lifted mandatory animal testing requirements for certain imported cosmetics in January 2021.

Veganism and your skin

Going vegan is a great thing to do for animals, the environment, and potentially your own health, but its beauty benefits are unclear. Last October, Natalie Portman told Harper’s Bazaar that going vegan makes her skin “gorgeous”. She has great skin, but there isn’t a lot of scientific evidence to say that veganism has made her better. There is a link between consumption of skimmed milk and the persistence of acne in some people, according to a 2016 study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. This type of milk is believed to increase the production of insulin-like growth factor 1, which in turn stimulates the inflammatory state. However, high blood sugar sugary foods that vegans can eat can also cause this increase. Atopic conditions like eczema are sometimes improved by eliminating dairy products, but a 2019 study found that fermented dairy products helped some patients with eczema.

There is professional speculation (rather than studies showing) that the hormones used in the production of meat and dairy products may stimulate acne and other skin problems, but I cannot direct you to any data to suggest that this is the case. ‘is the case. Ultimately, you’ll only know if veganism is the right choice for your skin when you try it. Cleaning up your diet in general can reduce stress and help you sleep better. These things alone improve your appearance. As to whether vegan cosmetics are dermatologically healthier than alternatives, it’s more about the ingredients of an individual formula than its brand policy. There are certainly loads of wonderful ingredients that are vegan.
