Veganism & Anti-Ageing

does going vegan make you look younger?

A mixture of rumours and scientific claims has dubbed veganism as a lifestyle which benefits anti-aging. With a number of a-list celebrities following a vegan diet (including Jared Leto will be 50 next year), it makes you wonder whether there is any truth behind the claims. 

What factors make skin age?

Aside from a purely natural process, skin ageing is can be caused by a variety of different factors, and according to Heathline, diet plays an important role.

Why Introduce A Vegan Diet?

A vegan diet is rich in nutrient antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which have been known to benefit the quality of the skin. 

Vitamin C stimulates collagen production, while vitamin A is important for developing and maintaining skin cells. Vitamin E can slow ageing and diminish the appearance of scars. All of these can be found in a healthy plant-based diet.

Another factor in skin ageing is dairy, which has been proved to have a link with poor looking skin as it can cause acne even in adults, according to a study from 2018.
