This idea had me at beer.
I take it if I’m pouring it in my hair I might as well be drinking it at the same time. Right?
Here are three ways to incorporate beer into your everyday beauty.
1. Strengthen hair. If you want to get your hair extra healthy, beer could become your new go-to hair treatment — more on that below. The malt and hops are packed with proteins that improve the way your hair looks and feels. You’ll notice your tresses will look shinier and will feel softer and stronger.
2. Control oily skin. While we might not like the frothy foam in beer when we’re sipping, it actually gives your complexion a boost. The yeast that’s responsible for the froth is chock full of good-for-your-skin ingredients: vitamin B, protein, potassium, iron, zinc, and magnesium. It can also get sebum production under control if you are prone to oily skin.
3. Remove product build-up. Remove dirt and product build-up with a DIY clarifying beer hair rinse: Combine one ounce of beer, one ounce of water, two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, and five drops of your fave essential oil (lemon and/or tea tree oil work well). Then, shampoo and rinse your locks like normal, but apply this solution as a secondary rinse to reveal squeaky-clean strands.
