Beer has healing powers. This only makes sense since it is composed of natural ingredients. When I was a little girl, my mother would rinse my hair for a bouncy clean look. Of course, I smelt like beer for a while, which was a bit odd.
I also have used a beer rinse for acne since I am inclined to have acne. Now, I have come up with an all natural pale ale facial mask and rinse that will keep you skin fresh and blemish free! Here are my two secret pale ale weapons:
Pale Ale Facial Mask
1 tablespoon of pale ale beer such as Blue Moon or Orange Shandy
1 tablespoon of plain vanilla yogurt (no flavors or berries or sugar)
1 teaspoon of pure olive oil (use the best you can find, this does go on your face)
1 teaspoon of raw honey
1 egg white
Use a whisk to mix your mask. If the smell puts you off, add a small stop of lemon oil essence. They mix will be a bit runny; it is not a thick mixture.
When it is completely mixed, apply it to your face in a circular motion, start with your neck and work your way up to your forehead. Be generous in your application. Let is stay on for about 20 minutes. Mix up your rinse while you are waiting.
Pale Ale Facial Rinse
2 tablespoons of pale ale
½ juice of a fresh lemon or lime
½ cup of warm water
Using a throwaway sponge wipe, gently begin to wash off the facial with the rinse. Follow the rinse with the splash or cold water on your face. Blot the extra moisture (do not rub). Then let your face air-dry. Always let your face air dry if possible, it is a moisturizing tool that not many people know about.
You can sit outside while your face dries and sip on the remainder of your pale ale, add the left over citrus for a little zing. Enjoy.
