A Skin Care Regime For 2020
Stoptober, Movember, Beardcember...Veganuary!
Stoptober, Movember, Beardcember...Veganuary! Heard of any of these? These playful takes on the months of the year are clever ways in which organizations have been increasing awareness of various health, ethics, and environmental initiatives and subsequently fundraising for them.
Veganuary, in particular, has been attracting a lot of attention recently as people are becoming more aware of their impact on the planet. So much attention that over 350,000 people have already signed up to participate this year alone!
What is Veganuary?
Whether it’s to protect the environment, prevent animal cruelty, improve their health, or for all of these reasons and more, many people have taken the pledge to try veganism for at least one month. Veganuary is a non-profit organization that actively motivates and supports people and businesses to adopt a plant-based diet. Scheduled for the month of January, the Veganuary pledge is often part of a New Year’s resolution.
Veganuary Skin Care Routine
In the spirit of Veganuary, it’s good to start being more aware of your skin care routine and, more specifically, whether or not your beauty products are vegan.
Swapping meat for tofu is not the only way to make a difference. But don’t worry, you don’t have to miss out on having a glowing complexion in order to protect our furry friends! Plus, New Year’s resolutions can be difficult to stick to and giving your skin some self-love is a great way to motivate yourself to persevere with Veganuary.
What Is Vegan Skin Care?
So we know that a vegan diet is the exclusion of animal products from our food, but how does veganism fit into skin care? Unfortunately, simply choosing products with plant-based ingredients isn’t enough to make your beauty routine vegan. Cosmetics must not cause any harm or suffering to animals, including via methods such as animal testing. Consequently, just because a product states it has vegan ingredients, does not mean that it is cruelty-free.
