In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Mandi Dawson about lupus, celiac disease and cosmetics. She has made many changes in her life due to her celiac and lupus diagnosis. She went from a junkier vegan diet to a more healthy, plant-based vegan diet to help battle her health issues. Today she tells us a bit of this story and lets us know about the creams, soaps and makeup we may be putting on our bodies. Mandi shares the effects they have on us and how we can make more compassionate choices for the animals, the world and ourselves. And yes, men, this is for you too! So don’t go anywhere and share it with anyone in your life who is not using clean, vegan cosmetics.

Mandi Dawson is a Canadian/British makeup artist and total beauty lover. She was a child model from the age of 1 and was exposed to makeup from a very early age. She is now a beauty blogger at The Beauty Edition. Immediately after becoming vegan, Mandi started to change her focus and bring more attention to a Cruelty-Free and Vegan Beauty/Lifestyle.
