How Going Vegan Can Change Your Skin

Going vegan is a journey.

In my case, a more or less long one. It all started in 2015 when I moved to Berlin, Germany.

Back then, I still ate meat and dairy products. My acne story started around this time when I quit the baby pill and antibiotics I was taking for several years for my bladder.

You probably can imagine that quitting these heavily invasive medications had caused massive acne breakouts just a couple weeks after. The reason was that, after quitting my medications, my body began to flush out all the toxins from them – of course also through the skin. I first had breakouts on my chest, my back, and later on my face. I was aware of the fact that I will go to a process to flush out all the toxins from the medications I took for a decade. It took me 1/1/2 years to clear up my severe acne until my skin finally cleared up more and more.

Going vegan played a big role in clearing my acne

Then I chose to become vegan. No meat, no dairy – not even the tiniest amount that hides in some products.

Back then, I went vegan not because of achieving clear skin, but I did it for the animals. Nonetheless, I realized how beneficial going vegan is not only for the animals and the environment but also for my skin. This realization happened when I switched back and forth from being vegetarian and vegan. From time to time, I craved cheese and dairy products so much that I eventually ended up eating my favorite dairy products. But every time I ate dairy my skin started showing pimples the next days – almost like an allergic reaction.

So I switched from being vegetarian to vegan again. And every time I went fully vegan, the little bumps and pimples cleared up. Looking back it was clear to me that there must be a correlation between dairy products and acne breakouts. When I was fully vegan my skin seems more clear, healthy, and less prone to breakouts. After some research, I found out that dairy products are known for containing growth hormones and inflammatory substances that can cause acne.

If acne is something you suffer from the first and easiest step to make is to try some time going vegan. Some people are concerned because they wonder how they should switch the products they eat on a daily basis to something vegan. I can tell you: First it may seem unfamiliar, but there are so many vegan options and recipes out there that are heavenly delicious. Just do some research on google or look for vegan products at your local supermarket. See what happens, you may be surprised by the changes you see. PS: I wrote down my recipes for my vegan breakfast down below for you to try out. It’s super easy and delicious.

Note: I’m not claiming that going vegan is the miracle cure for your acne. I still have light acne (hormonal) – especially in one spot on my cheeks. But I can say that going vegan helped it. Going vegan can potentially help you to clear up your skin – and the nice byproduct is that you’re not only doing good for your body and skin but also the environment and the animals.

When it comes to clearing up your skin from acne, besides the food you eat, there is much more to it than just the food you eat (even though I believe it’s a huge! factor). Your skincare routine and the products you use are equally important. I know skincare can be confusing, so I cover acne-related, skincare, and ingredient content in-depth in other posts. Make sure to check them out on my blog page.

Breakfast Smoothie for Glowy Skin

    • A Bunch of Celery
    • A Bunch of Carrots
    • 1 Apple
    • 1 Orange
    • 1/2 Lemon
    • 1 pcs Ginger (depends on how spicy you like it)

    I mix the ratio of veggies and fruits intuitively. Overall there should be more veggies in your juice than fruits (estimated 80/20). Everything goes into the juicer. Ready and enjoy!

    Vegan Avocado Toast with Sprouts

      • 1-2 Avocados
      • 1/2 onion
      • Salt
      • Pepper
      • Sprouts of your choice
      • Juice of 1/4 Lemon

      Chop up the Avo and smash it with a fork. Add the lemon juice, a little bit of salt and pepper. Chop the onion and mix it all up with the rest. Choose a bread of your choice (the darker the better). Sprinkle some sprouts over the ready Avo Toast. Eat. Enjoy!
