What exactly does it mean to be a vegetarian? Vegetarian simply means that an individual does not consume any meat/animal products or byproducts of animals. In addition to this, vegetarians do not take part in, acknowledge or consume anything by which animals are slaughtered. So what are by-products? By products are simply anything that may come from an animal that can be consumed: such as: milk, eggs, etc.
So imagine being a vegetarian and consuming mostly a plant based diet. Eating healthy; fruits, vegetables and an omnivore diet. The body begins to have more of a water based, antioxidant, nutrient dense existence! This then leads to a decrease in acne which results in clearer skin! Antioxidants leads to the body being able to protect the skin from damaging free radicals. The more damaging free radicals there are in the air near your skin, the easier it is for your skin to age at a faster rate if not protected by an antioxidant!
Vegetarian diet helps you body gets twice the natural love that it needs! I advise to begin by using vegetarian products on your skin. This way your skin does not accelerate in age and you can look more youthful than the average person your age would!
