Vegan skincare is the newest buzz word in this growing world of beauty as we all become more aware of our impact on our surroundings.

You would not be alone if you were unsure what exactly it meant. Even if you are a vegan or a meat lover, you might be interested in these new products due to the benefits it delivers for your skin and the environment.

Don't confuse vegan with cruelty free. Not every cruelty free product is vegan, as they may contain milk, honey or lanolin.

I was delighted that we could take part in the launch of the new Sothys organics range which has a one hundred percent vegan formula combining advanced efficiency and natural active ingredients. It's important to use plant derived ingredients as they can contain more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to repair and hydrate. Animal ingredients can be harsh and clog pores, so vegan products are a soothing alternative. You feel far better if you eat healthier foods in their natural state and the same logic applies to skincare. Your skin will thrive off being fed natural vegan ingredients.

In the heart of Correze, France, through their advanced research laboratory, Sothys created the new organics line.

To offer transparency, Sothys has chosen to have the entire range certified by Ecocert, which is in accordance to international Cosmos standard. The team at Sothys formulation laboratory have successfully developed ultra-efficient formulas while complying with rigorous and restrictive specifications. Highly specialised, Sothys has stood out ever since its founding by its unfailing commitment to beauty research and innovations and so offer the best nature has to offer.

Plants don't grow or contain collagen like humans or animals do but they do play a large role in how animals and humans continue to produce collagen. Having a diet consisting of high healthy fats and vitamins especially Vitamin C, will produce more collagen in your body. As we age collagen production slows down, although it never stops, and if you supply your body with proper nutrition to make healthy collagen, ageing isn't as noticeable. Some food sources which are great are oranges, kiwis, red peppers, kale, broccoli to name a few. Vitamin C really helps to protect and support the skin's cells, reduce inflammation, strengthen skin and lessen hyperpigmentation.

Next Friday (June 21), members of the public are invited to attend the Mass taking place at 6.30pm.

Now in its 30th year, the Mass was originally an idea by Geoffrey O’Donoghue who sadly died four years after it began.

“There was an Augustinian Monastery on Innisfallen Island and the people, including priests and monks and they say Brian Boro, went out there to study. The lake, Lough Lein is called ‘The Lake of Learning’,” said his wife Mary who carries on the tradition in his memory.

“My husband Geoffrey was a descendent of the O’Donoghues and he wanted to have Mass on the island. The O’Donoghues built Ross Castle and owned the lands and the lake surrounding it which was later donated by John McShane to the people of Killarney. He [Geoffrey] asked one of the friars and one day he got a call from the OPW that there would be a plaque unveiled to John McShane and they asked if the Mass could coincide with it. It was attended by Sr Pauline, John McShane’s daughter.”

She added that all the public are welcome to attend. Boats, which will have a nominal fee to cover their costs, will be carrying passengers out from 4pm onwards.

A photograph of one of Killarney’s hidden beauty spots was deemed the winner of Killarney Camera Club’s most recent competition.

Th standard was high throughout all categories but in the Novice category, Iryna Halaieva’s photograph of O’Sullivan’s Cascade was deemed the winner.

“A waterfall is my favourite waterbody and long exposure is my favourite photographic technique,” she said. “I do my best to have as many waterfalls as possible in my photo collection. I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”
