Choose the Best Vegan Skincare Based on Your Skin Type

Every skin type has different needs. While you might feel inclined to take up a friend's recommendation on the basis of their perfect skin, it's important to consider the factors that contribute to a healthy and glowing complexion in the first place. There's genetics, diet, type, weather, stress, age, and hormones. But there are only so many factors that you can control. Choosing the right beauty products for your skin type is one of the best ways to ensure that you get optimal results from your skincare. Make sure that your cleansers, serums, and moisturizers have clean ingredients to guarantee a vibrant complexion and a healthy glow. When it comes to beauty routines, your skin deserves the best of the best! And that's why so many choose vegan skincare brands like Fifth & Root.

So, what makes vegan skincare different? For starters, these skincare products are cruelty-free and don't contain any animal byproducts. While veganism is typically associated with a vegan diet, it actually involves an entire lifestyle. This means using beauty products that are free of animal-based ingredients like guanine, shellac, carmine, gelatin, glycerine, honey, or lanolin. Cruelty-free products contain natural ingredients that are plant-based, clean, and packed with vitamins that are beneficial for your skin both inside and out. If you're interested in learning more about the best vegan skincare products for your skin type, then keep reading below and find out why you should incorporate vegan products into your skincare routine.

Normal Skin

Normal Skin

People with normal skin can usually get away with using any cruelty-free skincare products. They don't have severe sensitivities when it comes to specific ingredients, their pores are likely on the smaller side, and they have little to no imperfections. Normal skin types tend to have a regular texture and a clear appearance. It requires low maintenance and doesn't experience much irritation. A clear complexion is the perfect foundation for our High Glow Facial Oil to achieve instant dewiness and lasting radiance. It has ingredients that vibe, including bakuchiol to improve photo-aging and terpenes for antioxidants

Oily Skin

If you have enlarged pores and your skin typically appears shiny throughout the day, then you likely have oily skin. Your skin might produce an excess amount of sebum which can cause it to feel greasy, especially around your forehead and nose. In order to control oil production, it's important to use the right cleanser. The Karmic Cleanse Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is a powder-to-foam formula that gently exfoliates dead skin cells and purifies the skin without stripping it of its natural oils.

People with oily skin tend to dry out their skin's surface with harsh cleansers. Our vegan formulation is gentle enough to polish the skin for a bright radiance without sucking the life out of your skin. Expect to have a calm and balanced complexion thanks to ground hemp stalk and French green clay. Plus, the waterless formula makes it perfect for travel.

Dry Skin

Dry Skin

Dry skin can usually be identified through a dull complexion, a tight feeling of dryness, more visible lines, and red patches. Pores are nearly invisible and the skin might feel less elastic. Keep in mind, dry skin can also be worsened by aging, cold weather, hot showers, or the wrong skincare products. That's why Fifth & Root stresses the use of clean, vegan ingredients that don't irritate or worsen skin conditions.

Dry skin requires a lightweight moisturizer that hydrates the skin without making it feel greasy. Our Second Nature Calming Facial Moisturizer has a luxurious, lightweight texture. It's rich in adaptogens and plant peptides that fight inflammation. Plus, it soothes, repairs, and nourishes your skin. Orange blossom and pomegranate peptides help with collagen formation while terpenes soothe the surface. Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, and wild indigo fight signs of aging, which tends to be a common issue with dry skin. Using the right moisturizer allows your skin to soak up the best nutrients.

Combination Skin

If your skin has two or more different textures, then you likely have combination skin. The texture of your skin might fluctuate depending on the season. Sometimes, it might feel tight and dry. Other times, it might feel oily. If you have both types on your face, then you'll want to implement a skincare routine that balances out the surface of your skin.

Our Fresh Face Bundle includes the Karmic Cleanse Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser and the Second Nature Calming Facial Moisturizer so that you can ensure that your skin is soothed, balanced, and healthy. Invest in your skin health by choosing vegan skincare that purifies and gently exfoliates dead skin cells but also moisturizes areas where your skin needs the most love. The lightweight, soothing moisturizer even combats pollutants and fights inflammation. Revitalize and restore radiance with this bundle.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive Skin

Having sensitive skin usually means that your skin is more prone to stinging, burning, itchiness, or redness. It tends to be more reactive in comparison to other skin types, which is why it's best to use vegan products with natural ingredients. Vegan formulations have fewer irritants, which is perfect for allergy-prone and dry skin. It's important to avoid skincare products with high chemical contents. For people with this skin type, we highly recommend the Moonlight Cooling Glow Mask.

This mask has turmeric and cucumber, which reduces sensitivity, redness, and puffiness. Plus, it has a cooling effect. The CBD and terpenes fight inflammation and irritation. It also balances out the skin with turmeric and prickly pear. If you're looking to mellow out and help stressed skin, then using the Moonlight Mask once or twice a week is the skincare you need.

Not only is it important to use the right skincare products for your skin's type, but it's also important to find products that use natural ingredients and are cruelty-free. Raise your skin's vibes with clean products that are free of sulfates, parabens, harsh preservatives, synthetic fillers, and animal-derived ingredients. We strive to use ingredients that vibe because we know it's what your skin deserves. Nurture yourself from the inside out with botanically-derived skincare for a glowing, healthy complexion.
