The Beauty Benefits Of Beer - Beer Masks

It can also be used to make your skin smooth and supple! Containing all the goodies that your skin needs, this beverage will definitely refresh your skin for the better!


Since the time of the Egyptians, many women use beer in order to rehydrate the skin and to also reduce the risk of skin conditions. Studies have shown that the yeast that is responsible for creating that yummy froth can help improve the skin condition of those who are suffering from acne. It does its job by slowing down sebum production. It also has properties that fight off the acne-causing bacteria.

The yeast that is found in beer contains pantothenic acid and B vitamins that help in keeping the skin smooth and supple. It also helps in maintaining the skin's pH level.

Hops, another component in beer making, helps slow down aging by affecting neopterin and tryptophan production, which are substances that show the telltale signs of inflammation.
