How Making the Switch to Vegan Skincare can Simplify your Beauty Routine
A simple, vegan skincare routine can streamline your beauty regimen and comes with other conscious benefits. Here’s why you should make the switch.
There’s no denying it – the beauty industry is big business. And with so many products on the market, it’s easy to be fooled into thinking that more is more when it comes to your skincare routine. There has also been an increase in conscious beauty products to cater to the growing public demand, with vegan skincare becoming more popular as people make the change to this lifestyle.
What is vegan skincare?
Just like the food, vegan skincare refers to beauty products that contain no animal-derived ingredients. This generally means that they are cruelty-free as well.
Statistics revealed that interest in and the sales of vegan cosmetics went up by 100% last year. This is because people are starting to make more ethical decisions about the products they consume.
Why should you make the switch?
There are several other reasons to make the switch to a simple, vegan skincare routine.
Each year, the beauty industry generates more than 120 billion units of packaging, of which around 79% ends up in landfills and the environment. This is excluding the 14 million tons of microplastic polluting the ocean floor. Simplifying your routine is one way to lower your environmental impact as you will be using fewer products. This is also why glass packaging is more sustainable.
Another reason to make the switch to simple is because, as the old saying goes, less *really is* more! The more complicated your routine and the more products you use, the more risk you run of clogged pores, skin irritations and breakouts. Not to mention the amount of time and money wasted! It also means that you are putting more chemicals onto your skin which can throw your pH off balance.
This is also the case when mixing different brands. Their ingredients can often clash, leaving your skin worse off rather than better. Instead, stick to one brand that offers all the necessary products to keep your skin in tip-top shape.
Our skin doesn’t need plenty of products or animal-derived ingredients to thrive. Cutting back down to basics by having a simple, three-step vegan skincare regimen is good for the environment as well as your complexion and will bring you a step closer to leading a more ethical life.
