After hearing a lot about beer benefits for hair and skin, I researched a lot about multiple ways in which beer can be included in our beauty regime. Beer does works wonders for our skin and hair! I always keep experimenting with beer and anyhow you use it, it works great!
A beer is made up of inherent ingredients like water, starch, malted barley and brewer’s yeast. It has no side effects at all and I swear by this! While beer might seem an odd ingredient in your beauty routine, the aesthetic benefits are tremendous! Beer has a low pH so it helps tighten your hair follicles, thereby strengthening your hair. It also cleans the dirt and grime from hair properly. Beer works amazingly in reducing the pore size and skin tightening. The froth in beer is also good for fighting acne because of yeast in it; it helps slow down sebum production thereby reducing/preventing the appearance of pimples or acne.
