Veganism has become pretty hip over the last few years. According to healthy food brand Pollen + Grace, there are at least 542,000 vegans in the UK right now - 10 years ago, that figure was only around 150,000.
And thanks to many familiar high street restaurants and food brands introducing vegan lines and nut milks arriving in your local coffee shop, it's becoming easier than ever to become a vegan, or at least a part-time one, if you want to try to cut down on your meat and dairy consumption.
Veganism isn't just a blanket term for a meat and dairy-free diet though: veganism can be filtered through to your entire lifestyle - including your beauty choices.
Many brands are working hard to become vegan-friendly, meaning their products are free of animal-derived ingredients, with some labels entirely vegan. And you don't have to compromise on effectiveness either: some of the best and most hard-working products that you should have in your skincare arsenal are vegan.
