To most people, a vegan lifestyle means avoiding eating animal products, usually for animal cruelty reasons. Although it’s certainly on the list, there are many other ethical, health, environmental, and even aesthetic reasons to cut animal products out of every part of one’s lifestyle and habits. All-natural and sustainable products are better for you, enhance your appearance, and freshen your style, all while protectingecosystems and our animal friends.

Showing off gorgeous vegan fashion means supporting unique and cool companies with high quality products and good hearts. A glowing example is these Eve Cork handbags and other accessories that are 100% cruelty-free. They look like they’re made of smooth, luxurious leather but are more durable, lightweight, stain-resistant, waterproof, and require no harsh chemicals to make or to treat.It’s not necessary to cut down the trees for production – only the bark layer is harvested, and it regrowscontinually! Their premium line is truly vegan because the colors (except for the natural cork) are created by dying the fabric with organic vegetable dyes and there are no harmful chemicals or glues used in the handcrafting. Other artificial leathers are made with fossil fuels and poisonous chemicals to process and produce. Harming the environment isn’t good for any animal, including humans.
The best beauty enhancers are nutritional. Staying hydrated keeps you and your skin from drying out. The food you eat also affects the appearance of your complexion. A plant-based diet contains anti-oxidants that help clear free radicals from your body that can cause pre-mature aging and discolouration, whereas the saturated fat in animal flesh increases these free radicals. Healthy fats like those found in avocadoes, olive oil, chia seeds, and nuts enhance suppleness in skin. Dairy can cause acne flare-ups and other irritation in the body. Vegan diets lower cholesterol and dramatically improve heart health and circulation. Plant-based diets are also energizing which can help to motivate and enhanceone’s physical activities.
