Fall is just around the corner. While Starbucks starts the Pumpkin Spice Latte today (we are will be discussing pumpkin in a few weeks), we are focusing on our faces and all about the new craze, the whiskey face mask. A whiskey face mask is perfect for fall and while, a sip of whiskey has the magic to make almost everything better, a spoon of the same in your face mask could be the magic your skin requires.
Of course, I am not suggesting you add your favorite bottle of Breckenridge bourbon and regret it the night it gets over. But we all have that one bottle which was mostly a bad purchase, that we can never get ourselves to finish and is just shelved. So why not put it to good use by adding it to your skin regime. Here are 7 ways by which you can add whiskey to your everyday face mask which will result in glowing skin.
Whisk some whiskey and honey
Honey has natural moisturizing properties and is also an antibacterial ingredient that is often used on the skin especially prone to acne.
Honey is also a natural humectant and draws moisture into it which aids in keeps hair moisturized this fall and winter.
Whiskey and water
While you could very well be tempted to drink it, this mixture feels just as amazing on your skin as it does when you drink. There is not better moisturizer than water and it’s super inexpensive! Dab a cotton ball soaked in this mixture across your face and let it rest for a while. Wash it immediately after it dries up and you will see a gorgeous glow on your skin.
Whiskey and lemon
Lemon, although is highly acidic, is commonly included in small quantities in skin care routines because of the amazing skin lightening properties this has. It helps to remove tan or scars and even uneven patches and lighten skin skilfully. A mixture of ½ teaspoon whiskey and 2 spoons of lemon juice will make a great mask for your skin. It will help remove dullness and darkness in the skin and bleach away scars while leaving it to look beautiful. Do not forget to moisturize every time you use this mask.
Egg White and Whiskey face mask
Egg whites are not just great for lowering your cholesterol. Egg whites have astringent properties that help shrink pores by tightening the skin and this face pack is a great way of getting rid of acne and lightening the scars following it. Add one teaspoon of whiskey to one egg white and blend them together. Apply this on your face and wash after 15-20 minutes with lukewarm water. Repeat it twice a week and you will watch acne disappear effectively.
Whiskey and green tea face mask
Green tea is filled with antioxidants and is very effective in treating infections and bacteria that cause pimples below the surface of your skin. A report in the Journal of the American Medical Association of Dermatology found that green tea as anti-inflammatory p in green tea has the potential for fighting off a variety of skin disorders. Mix the two ingredients and apply it on the areas of the zit and let it rest. You can wash it after it dries and this will help dry the acne. You can even get some green tea powder if you like and then add it to your hair mixture or even your smoothies!
Milk and whiskey face mask
A tablespoon of milk powder, one spoon whiskey and add a few drops of honey and mix these ingredients well. Apply the mixture to your skin away from the eye region. Milk powder or powdered milk has skin lightening properties and these ingredients mix to rejuvenate skin along with making it clear and soft.
Chocolate and Whiskey
Who doesn’t love chocolate? You can munch dark chocolate and whiskey and enjoy a great snack or add it to a bowl and mix with some whiskey and apply to your skin. Repeat this mask twice a week for obtaining soft and supple skin that will carry natural glow. Dark chocolate makes an excellent skin-detoxifier in combination with caffeine and hosts a range of potent antioxidants.
Do you love adding foods or flowers to your whiskey? Other face masks with whiskey you can try are whiskey with rose petals, cucumber juice with whiskey, and Neem leaves or Neem oil with whiskey which will remove all impurities from your skin effectively.
Points to remember while trying whiskey masks
- Not every skin type reacts the same with whiskey. So try it on a small patch of your skin elsewhere before you choose to apply it on your face. The best face mask for sensitive skin is simple whiskey and water.
- Always add whiskey in small quantities such as a teaspoon or 2 maximum. Including too much will cause harm and might damage your skin.
- Never apply whiskey directly. Always mix it with any other ingredient, at least water before using it on your skin.
- Do not forget to moisturize well following this session as certain combinations involved tend to make skin dry given it has alcohol.
Other alcohol-based masks you can try are ones with tequila, wine or rum which are also quite effective on the skin and will mix well with several ingredients like green tea, water and honey.
