I’m vegan for the animals, but my acne is 95% gone now
As the post title says – I went vegan for the animals. The only non-vegan thing I was still eating was whey protein, but I was eating A LOT of it. Quit cold turkey after a spiritual epiphany back in March (from raising chickens, in fact) and never looked back.
But now, after an entire life of struggling with acne (I'm 31F and continued to struggle in adulthood), I'm almost completely clear. Still a rogue pimple every now and then, but nothing like what it was even earlier this year.
I hate it when people go vegan ("plant based") for health reasons because it seems fleeting and ultimately rooted in selfish and vain desires – but I also wonder how much sooner my spiritual epiphany might have happened if a wizard had told me that rejecting cruelty was also going to fix my busted ass skin. Hmm…
