All the Wonderful Ways a Vegan Diet Can Fix Your Skin Woes

If you wanted to know if someone is vegan or not, their luminous skin might give it away. Veganism and plant-based diets are the hottest trends around at the moment thanks to documentaries like The Game Changers, which focus on the benefits of removing or limiting the animal products you consume daily.

It's no secret that eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is ideal for your overall health and wellbeing, and your skin is no exception.

We decided to take a closer look at how a vegan diet can affect your skin.

4 surprising skin benefits of going vegan

1. Acne

Everyone's skin is different and unique, but I'm sure that everyone reading has struggled with a breakout of acne before. There's an endless list of reasons why pimples appear, however, there's a common denominator across studies undertaken on the matter.

The various growth hormones present in dairy products are now known to contribute to skin congestion and acne. A study of dietary patterns and acne shows that Western-style diets containing high amounts of sugar and fat as well as animal products exacerbated acne in test patients.

2. Inflammation

For people suffering from skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, and some skin allergies, it can be frustrating, inconvenient and even painful. Following a plant-based diet for a consistent time period has been shown to reduce inflammatory markers in the body which contribute to certain irritating skin conditions.

3. Fine lines

They're inevitable, but there's a simple way to slow down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A healthy antioxidant intake that stems from the consumption of fruits and vegetables is the best way to fight free radicals which cause signs of premature ageing and even pigmentation.

You might think that simply taking a supplement each day has the same effect, however, it's been proven that your body will receive a lot more benefits from consuming antioxidant-rich foods than an isolated supplement alone.

4. Dullness

Did you know that by eating certain foods your skin can take on a more healthy, glowing appearance? It turns out that by regularly eating orange vegetables like pumpkin and carrots you ultimately increase your consumption of an antioxidant called beta-carotine that rewards you with a healthy complexion.

Also, vitamin C that's found in many fruits can help to neutralise free radicals and repair damaged skin cells as well.

There are many health benefits of going plant-based. Here are 6 science-backed reasons to go vegan.
