For some, the natural ageing process is their worst nightmare. In desperate attempt to reverse the clock, society indulges in expensive, invasive solutions like botox, lip fillers, plastic surgery and face lifts. But did you know that most of these treatments do more harm than good?

Unfortunately, most products used in medical procedures like these have usually been tested on animals. More specifically, the products have most likely been tested on dogs – beagles, to be precise. Beagles are regularly used in medical cosmetic tests due to their kind nature, which results in them showing the most pain and distress than any other breed of dog. Not only this, but many of these treatments use animal products and by-products. And don’t even get started about the devastating effects that many surgical procedures can cause!

At Skinfull Affairs, we believe in embracing natural beauty- conscientiously. Through a balanced, primarily plant-based diet and the use of organic and natural beauty products, we believe that true beauty comes to the surface when the mind, body and soul are all indulged and cared for. Here are our anti-ageing hacks for you to try next time you begin to consider going under the knife!
