Meat-Free Diet – the Easy Way to Great Looking Skin
Our skin is subject to damage from a large number of external factors. Everything from sun exposure, synthetic beauty products, hot and dry air, cigarette smoke and pollution can affect how your skin looks and feels. That’s why paying special attention to your skincare regime is so important. Using gentle 100% organic beauty products, such as those found in the Mimi’s Miracle Organic Skincare range, can help keep your skin feeling moisturised and looking youthful.
As well as protecting your skin from the environment, it’s also important to recognise the contribution that diet makes. It’s difficult to escape the overwhelming amount of information describing the benefits of healthy eating and a growing number of people are shying away from processed foods and heading down a more natural route. In many cases this includes pursuing a non meat diet in the form of veganism or vegetarianism.
Adopting a Meat-Free Diet – How to be a Vegan or Vegetarian
So what is a vegan or vegetarian diet and why are they increasing in popularity? A vegetarian diet is one in which you avoid eating meat or fish; a vegan diet takes this one step further and eliminates all foods or products which originally came from animals or insects. If you believe the age old adage “you are what you eat”, then it’s easy to see why taking a natural plant based approach might be favourable. A diet rich in nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables has a demonstrable effect not only on how a person feels, but also on how they look.
This is why veganism and vegetarianism are growing in popularity as people recognise the health consequences of avoiding products derived from animals. The benefits of excluding meat from your diet are numerous and include weight loss, lower cholesterol, decreased blood pressure, protection from diseases such as cancer and promotion of a more glowing complexion.
