Alcohol is known as a party starter and a pain eraser, but can it also be a skincare ingredient?
In her new book Return to Beauty,
Narine Nikogosian uses gin, vodka, and beer alongside the oatmeal, yogurt, and honey ingredients seen in typical DIY recipes. It’s kind of counterintuitive, as we’ve all heard about the damage drinking does to our skin. But Nikogosian, skin care consultant for Jessica Alba and Charlize Theron, claims alcohol’s antiseptic and tightening properties make effective toners, masks and moisturizers. Apparently, pouring your next shots into the mixing bowl will renew your skin.
The book names its spiked recipes things like Wickedly Wonderful Watermelon Toner and Hopped-Up Sweet Potato Mask. But can you sacrifice your martini ingredients for a beauty experiment?
