Vegan face care is a growing trend in clean beauty and it’s a great choice for those with sensitive skin. Not only does it offer a more gentle approach to your complexion, but by choosing plant-based products you’re lowering your environmental footprint as well. Unlike traditional skincare, which often contains ingredients that can cause irritation (like synthetic fragrances or parabens), plant-based products are less likely to cause such issues and they’re also packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are great for your skin long-term.
There are many vegan and cruelty-free face products on the market that will provide you with all of your everyday skin needs. The key is to know your skin type and choose a cleanser, moisturizer and toner that suits you best. Summer Fridays offers a range of vegan face products from the skincare brand Pai, including their Lotus & Orange Blossom Soothing Tonic which reduces redness and improves skin tone and texture. Another brand to try is Herbivore Botanicals, who use organic ingredients to create their luxurious products such as their Vegan Milk Moisturizer which contains oat milk to calm the skin and argan milk to seal in moisture.
If you’re new to vegan skin care, it’s a good idea to start with the basics and work your way up. Start by removing makeup (with a clean cloth or product specially formulated to remove makeup) with a cleanser, then gently massage your serum or cream into your skin before you apply your sunscreen. Finish with a moisturizer that’s suitable for your skin type and enjoy your fresh, beautiful complexion!
Choosing vegan face products is a great way to support animal rights, as it reduces the demand for ingredients that are tested on animals. Over 100 million animals are used for testing purposes each year, so if you choose cruelty-free products you’re helping to make a difference for the wellbeing of our fellow earthlings.
You can easily find vegan products by looking for a vegan-friendly symbol such as the PETA or Vegan Society seal on your skincare products. You can also check the ingredients list to ensure that no animal-derived substances are present.
