Face MasksWho doesn't love a DIY beauty recipe? Sometimes we can find the ingredients that can help our skin, right in our own kitchen! Jasmina Aganovic, Creator of the beauty brand Stages of Beauty has created several cocktail-inspired concoctions.

Alcohol can actually be a beneficial ingredient in skincare recipes and assist in the fight against fine lines and wrinkles. These recipes are easy to whip up in your kitchen with household ingredients.

 

Jasmina's DIY Beauty Recipes: Cocktail Inspired!

Spring Fling Mask

Winter takes a toll on our skin so springtime is the time to do some damage control. Exfoliation, detox, and hydration are key. The ingredients in the mask below help us do just that.

·         1 egg white – These have tons of protein and lecithin which help hydrate the skin and cure it from winter’s dry skin woes. Eggs are the symbol of spring and new beginnings in many cultures.

·         1 tbsp Honey – Antibacterial and renewal properties.

·         1 tbsp Brandy – Helps slough off dead skin cells while stimulating circulation for a rosy springtime glow! Plus, the brandy helps fight fine lines and wrinkles.

·         1 tbsp green tea – Detoxifying and antioxidant

 

The Sidecar Mask

This recipe is based off of the Sidecar cocktail (Cognac, Cointreau, lemon juice)

·         1 tbsp Cognac – Cognac is great for stress release (by drinking and applying topically!), plus it helps fight fine lines and wrinkles while healing damage to the skin (wound healing).

·         1 tbsp orange juice – Citrus enzymes for brightening effects

·         1 tbsp lemon juice – Citrus enzymes for brightening effects + antioxidant and astringent properties

·         2 tbsp ground oatmeal – Serves as a cleansing and calming ingredient (reduces redness and irritation)

 

The “Between the Sheets” Scrub (or Mask)

This recipe is based off of the cocktail called “Between the Sheets” (brandy, light rum, triple sec, lemon juice)

·         1 tbsp brandy - Helps slough off dead skin cells while stimulating circulation for a rosy springtime glow! Plus, the brandy helps fight fine lines and wrinkles.

·         2 tbsp packed brown sugar – (this represents rum, which is derived from sugarcane). Despite the debate over the effects of sugary foods on the skin, when applied topically, sugar has some great benefits. Sugar is actually rich in alpha-hydroxy acids, which means that it helps give you glowing skin. When used as a scrub it can help slough off dead skin and stimulate circulation in the body.

·         1 tbsp orange juice – Citrus enzymes for brightening effects (this represents the triple sec)

·         1 tbsp lemon juice – Citrus enzymes for brightening effects + antioxidant and astringent properties
