You’ve probably seen articles online and in magazines before about the benefits of Reducetarian diet. Not only does it have benefits for the planet, but this change can make a big difference to your skin. But what is Reducetarian Diet exactly?
In a plant-based nutshell, a Reducetarian diet means reducing the amount of animal products such as red meat, processed meat, seafood, dairy, and eggs that you eat. You’re not removing them altogether from your diet, instead, you are consciously deciding to have less.
Animal-based foods have been found to cause inflammation in the body. This inflammation can sometimes manifest as visible skin issues like acne, psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema. Fruits and veggies are not only packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients that nourish our bodies, they also help reduce inflammation.
SMALL CHANGE, BIG DIFFERENCE.
