Beer is so much more than an alcoholic beverage, even if it’s a yummy one! It can actually make you prettier. Yes, ladies, beer has beauty benefits too! Read on to find out what wonders it can do for your skin and hair. (Thank us later!)
1. It Makes Your Hair Shiny And Restores Volume
Beer contains vitamin B and proteins that help repair damaged hair and increase volume! It also helps reduce dandruff and adds shine and life to dull hair. The next time wash your hair, make sure it’s with four tablespoons of beer and half a glass of water.
Step 1 - Pour it over your scalp and make sure it reaches your mid lengths.
Step 2 - Let the natural shampoo sit for about five whole minutes.
Step 3 - Wash it off with lukewarm water.
2. It Makes Your Feet Baby Soft
Ladies, you don’t need to go to a salon to get a foot spa done, you can do one at home! You see, beer contains yeast. Yeast helps in making the skin on your feet soft. Also, the alcohol in the beer serves as an antiseptic. This helps protect your feet from harmful bacteria.
Step 1 - Fill a tiny tub with warm water.
Step 2 - Pour half a can of beer into the tub of warm water.
Step 3 - Soak your feet in and relax. Don’t forget to scrub after!
3. It Keeps Your Skin Clean
If you’ve always wanted to wake up to clean and soft skin, then you have to give beer a shot! It contains vitamins and yeast which cleanse skin by flushing out toxins and regulating the production of sebum. It also helps reduce and treat acne. If you want the desired results, you’ll have to know how to make a face mask. We’re at your service!
Step 1 - In a small bowl, add one tablespoon of almond oil, one egg white, two tablespoons of beer and one big scoop of unflavoured yoghurt.
Step 2 - Blend all ingredients well, and apply it gently to your face.
Step 3 - Keep the face mask on for 10-15 minutes and rinse it off with some warm water after.
4. It Makes You Look Younger!
Who doesn’t want to look forever young? We all do! And to be honest, beer does wonders for your tired skin. It contains antioxidants that slows the ageing process and gets rid of anti-inflammatory substances from the skin. You can either drink it or make a face mask out of it. The results will always be fabulous.
5. As A Conditioner For Silky Strands
There are many products in the market that just do NOT agree with your hair. It makes it feel rough, frizzy and dry. You don’t need that drama in your life now, do you? What you need to do is grab a can of beer instead!
Step 1 - Add a few drops of beer and a teaspoon of jojoba oil to your regular conditioner. Mix well.
Step 2 - Now, apply the mix evenly through your strands.
Step 3 - Leave it to soak in your hair for 3-5 minutes and rinse well with cold water.
6. It Keeps Your Skin Hydrated!
Due to beer’s astringent properties, it has the power to clear pores from within and gets rid of harmful toxins. We suggest you try something different this time...a beer bath perhaps!
Step 1 - Pour an entire can or two and a teaspoon of olive oil into a tub or bucket of warm water.
Step 2 - Immerse your body into the tub or wash yourself with warm water.
Step 3 - Take a deep breath and relax.
