Do these 8 things to keep your skin looking and feeling good
Aging is a beautiful thing! But if you’re looking for ways to be proactive and keep your skin looking, and more importantly, feeling, good — here are some fun and simple ways to rejuvenate your skin the plant-based way.
8 ways to rejuvenate your skin the plant-based way
Try Rosehip Oil for a boost of collagen
Collagen is known for being a ticket to youthful skin. However, typically, collagen supplements are not vegan, as most come from animal byproducts. But luckily, vegans can get the benefits of collagen, too, with Rosehip Oil!
Rosehip oil is known for moisturizing, hydrating, and brightening skin. And it can also be used to decrease dark spots, acne marks, eczema, and rosacea. Even better: It naturally boosts your own collagen and elastin, which makes it one of the best anti-aging ingredients out there!
Curious? Try our pure and organic Rosehip Oil. Just use a few drops and we bet you’ll be as hooked as we are!

Sunscreen is super important for your skin’s health, but it’s also important to be conscious of what you’re slathering on your skin. Two of our favorite brands include: Ocean Potion Sunscreen Lotion and Sun Bum Mineral SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion
Rain or shine, wearing sunglasses is an under-rated way to protect your skin. Less squinting = less wrinkles.

Unwind and destress
Did you know that studies show that even the anticipation of stress can increase an individual’s risk of age-related disorders? Yikes! So, here is your reminder to do something that makes you feel good and stress-free!
Eat more nuts
Nuts, particularly almonds, are loaded with Vitamin E, which is great for retaining skin moisture and keeping skin safe from UV rays.
Love your leafy greens
Spinach, kale, collard greens, watercress, romaine lettuce, you name it! Leafy greens are full of beta carotene, which is known for giving skin that fresh, bright glow.

Say “Yes” to Avocado
As if we needed another reason to love avocados, they’re also full of fatty acids and natural oils that are super nourishing for skin.
Cut down on salt
According to Livestrong, too much salt can cause skin to become dry, cracked, and dehydrated. No, thank you! Reading food labels, eating less processed foods, and holding back on the salt shaker are a few easy ways to monitor your sodium intake.
