Beer makes beautiful
Beer makes you beautiful. This fact has been known for ages. But what all can be done with the beverage or with its individual ingredients? Whether it is used to deal with sleeplessness, to eliminate wrinkles or to stop heartburn, beer is an all-rounder, which does not only show its pleasant effect when consumed nicely chilled.
The beautifying effect of hops was already known in the old Egypt. In these times women nourished their skin with beer froth and Queen Luise of Prussia supposedly treated her décolleté with it regularly. In these days the exact effect of beer respectively its contents was not yet know – the people only knew that it improved their complexion. Today, this beverage is indispensable in the cosmetic sector.
Miracle cure Lupulin
The reason is the hops which are contained in the beer. Hops are not only found in areas of cultivable land. They also grow wild at riversides or in other wet areas. The actually active substance is Lupulin, which gives the beer its aromatic taste and long shelf life, assuages sleeplessness and increases beauty. This substance, however, cannot be found in the wildly sprawled climbing plants. Lupulin is a yellow powder which is obtained through screening hops cones. With this, hops pillows and hops teas can be produced which have a positive effect on the abdominal organs due to an herbal hormone similar to oestrogen. Since not everybody has a hops field in their surrounding it is now possible to buy these flowers at the pharmacy.
Yeast refines the skin’s appearance
Not only have the hops had a pleasant effect on body and mind, but also the yeast. Since it provides abundant vitamin B it is a perfect body care product for blemished skin. The application can take place internally and externally. Due to its effects yeast is an essential part of cosmetic packs and masks. Small spots already disappear at a daily intake of a hazelnut-sized dose. People who do not like the flavour can use yeast pills as an alternative.
Body care with beer
Beer is frequently used as a fixing hair styling product – which is due to the molecular connections. These are building a strong adhesive substance whose intensity is decreased in the beer as it is diluted. Thus it enables the styling of one’s hair without the troublesome sticking. Thankfully the alcoholic smell disappears as soon as the hair gets dry.
Hops also remove unpleasant wrinkles. For this purpose you only need about 50 gram of hops flowers and 100 gram olive oil. The hops flowers have to be doused with the olive oil and afterwards filled in a suitable container and hermetically sealed. The mixture has to be stored at a warm place for four weeks. Following the oil can be separated from the herbal remains and be used two or three times a week. For a cleaning effect a yeast mask is recommendable. The vitamin B6 prevents excessive tallow deposit und speeds up the healing process. Masks with yeast can be bought or self made at home. To do so, you only need to mix three tablespoons of yeast, one teaspoon of honey and a few millilitre of distilled water. Afterwards the mask has to be left on for 15 minutes and can be removed with warm water.
Internal beauty with beer
For the internal beauty hops tee is recommendable. This is quite simply made – two teaspoons of the yellow powder have to be doused with one quarter of a litre of hot water. After letting 15 minutes the tea is ready. If one cup is consumed twice a day the calming effect will soon be felt. Add an additional small dash of valerian and the soporific is ready. Less tasty but also helpful could be a warm beer if you have heartburn. If tried it has to be ensured that the beer gets only heated and not boiled. This counteracts to the increase in gastric acid.
To increase the well-being
But sometimes a simple cool beer after work is just enough to increase the well-being, to unwind after a stressful working day and to relax. And to drink a delicious beer during your beauty treatment to raise your glass to your new good looks cannot be reprehensible. With this in mind: Cheers! Have fun trying this out.
