Committing to Veganism

Becoming a vegan is major decision in a person’s life. It means being committed to an ideal that a greater portion of the world’s population will not see in the same light as you do. Most of us enjoy eating meat and foodstuffs that came from animals but a vegan will never touch anything that has animal ingredients in it, no matter how small the portion is. This idealism is what attracted me to become a vegan when I first encountered it. The first vegan that I got to know personally was a classmate of mine in one of my art subjects in college. His name was Mark and there was nothing remarkable about him when I first saw him. He was just like the rest of us in that class, a young man struggling to finish his education.

When he got up to introduce himself to the class he mentioned that he was a vegan. I had to ask my seat mate what a vegan is. When I was properly informed I was impressed with Mark. I saw him as a person who has the courage to stand up for what he believes in.

I befriended Mark after that and the more I got to know him the more that I was impressed with the courage of his convictions. That admiration was the main cause for my own desire to start practicing veganism. I wanted to know if I could gain a strength of character as strong as his.

It was not an easy journey for me, but I have been able transform my life. I have been a vegan now for more than ten years. Now for me backsliding is a very remote possibility. I believe in animal rights and everything that it stands for and so I know that I will be vegan until the day I die.

How To Dealing With Pimple and Acne Problems

Acne is a common problem among teenagers and some adults that can be very embarrassing and frustrating. Sometimes pimples can be painful, but even if they aren’t, they take the focus away from who you really are. It can be very uncomfortable when it feels like people are only staring at your face for the wrong reason. Fortunately, acne doesn’t have to plague you for the rest of your life. There are treatment options available that can help to minimize or eliminate your acne problems.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money on treatments either because there are lots of over-the-counter products and home remedies to get rid of pimples.

Acne, commonly referred to as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, or blemishes, is an infection at the surface of your skin. Imbalanced hormones cause the sebaceous glands to overact clogging pores and causing acne. Acne is most commonly found on the face, but it can show up almost anywhere on the body such as the neck, back, chest, etc. Acne is most common among teenagers, but it also affects some adults as well. Some women never experience acne, even as a teenager, but once they get pregnant, acne covers their skin. It’s unfortunate, but there are ways to deal with it.

Some home remedies for pimples include an oatmeal scrub to get rid of dead skin cells, a honey wash for moisture, lemon juice, lime juice, or apple cider vinegar can be used as an astringent, and tea tree oil can dry up existing pimples. You can also check out the drugstore for inexpensive treatments including face washes, astringents, and creams.

Whether you’re looking for effective home remedies for pimples or you are happy with drugstore products, if something doesn’t work, move on and try something new. You shouldn’t have to live with what you have when there are so many options available to you.
