Veganism has taken the weight loss world by storm. But, the other big plus about adopting this lifestyle has to do with its extreme detoxification process, which works wonderfully for your skin too.

With no animal products in their diet and a whole host of nutritive additions, vegans notice a change in their overall appearance, thanks to the inside out cleanse of the food plan.

Here’s how it works:

Fats: Meats contain certain fats that clog the skin’s pores. Also, given that a vegan diet veers you towards eating more vegetables, your fiber content goes up significantly, leading to the flushing out of waste from your body, and your skin too. Vegan ingredients are void of saturated fats; as for the unsaturated fats, they are great for cell repair and renewal, and can work to your advantage.

Antioxidants: Veggies and fruits are a storehouse of antioxidants such as vitamins A, E and C. They can kick up a storm to protect your skin against sun damage, acne, scarring, and inflammation, leaving you with clean and clear skin. Also, the diet encourages the intake of nuts and seeds, both great sources of the hair and skin beautifiers—vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids.

Minerals: While the minerals are aplenty, a simple thing like the high content of zinc in beans can really take care of that inflammation and redness of your skin.

Dairy-Free: Dairy products have been linked with acne, and ditching them from your diet can significantly reduce the symptoms—particularly among adults.

So whether you opt the diet to lose weight, eat healthier, or for its beauty benefits, going vegan is certainly something you could consider, if you’re determined enough to make a change.
