Winter can be harsh on your skin and lips in surprising ways. Snow-reflected sunrays, for instance, have been known to cause unsuspecting but serious sunburns. The winds too are drier during the colder season and can cause symptoms like itching and redness. But being vegan doesn’t mean that you can’t protect yourself from such winter harshness. Cosmetic brands across the world have begun respecting the conscientious nature of vegans and have introduced several products to help them look their best any time of the year. In this article, I will share 4 vegan products to help protect from harsh winter elements.
Hurraw! offers a wide range of organic and vegan lip balms to ensure that your lips continue to remain luscious through winter. The balms are available in various exciting flavors including black cherry, coconut, Earl Grey, chocolate, and my favorite - Green Tea. A plain, unscented option is also offered if you are wary of experimenting with flavors. These lip balms are popular for being extra smooth, non-sticky and long lasting. The meadow foam seed oil used in Hurraw!’s balms is a strong antioxidant and moisturizer that helps keep lips soft and healthy even in the coldest and driest of conditions. The coconut oil and cocoa seed butter also help nurture your lips throughout the day. Easy to fit in the pocket of your jeans, Hurraw! lip balms are a must have beauty accessory for all vegans this winter.
Dry winter winds can cause severe acne problems by sucking the moisture out of skin cells and damaging them. BioClarity’s 3-step anti-acne formula is a great way to ensure that your face does not fall victim to this. First, apply the cleanser that comes with the goodness of cooling cucumber extract and detoxifying green tea leaf extract to gently remove dirt, pollutants and oil from your face. Next, use the acne treatment gel fortified with 2% salicylic acid and oat kernel extract to clear out any remaining dirt and bacteria, and to effectively treat any blemishes. Lastly, apply the restore gel with Floralux (naturally derived from chlorophyll) which soothes the skin and helps fight any redness and irritation of the skin. What’s more? BioClarity is so confident of its 3-step treatment that it offers all its customers a full refund within 30 days of making the purchase and a guide to figuring out your skin type.
