Want to feel like a modern Cleopatra? It’s believed that women of ancient Egypt and Rome took beer baths as part of their beauty routine to help keep their skin smooth, clear and hydrated. Beer (and beer extract) is full of B vitamins that work to clear your skin of acne while adding a natural radiance to your skin (hence the name Radiance on Tap!). Hops, used in beer, possess potent anti-inflammatory qualities for the skin that can lessen scarring. Hops is a great source of antioxidants, offers antibacterial qualities, and can help with fighting against free-radicals to protect your skin’s glow. The yeast contained in beer is a great source of B vitamins, protein, magnesium, iron, and zinc which are beneficial to the skin and assist with promoting healthy aging.
Used for centuries in Europe for its beauty benefits, vodka is full of purifying beauty benefits. Vodka has natural antiseptic and astringent properties, which purify, balance and tone skin, as well as control excess sebum production in those with oily skin types.

Saké is an often-overlooked spirit, offering amazing benefits for your skin. Kojic acid, a natural by-product of the saké fermentation process, is similar to a natural bleaching agent. This natural and gentle ingredient is a safer way to effectively brighten dull, tired skin and remove dark spots. Saké contains Proline and Glutamic Acid, amino acids that are known to condition and hydrate the skin making for a baby soft complexion from the inside out.
