Benefits of Soaking in Beer
13 Mar, 2019
It’s time to fill up a tub and soak in your favorite brew. Hops, yeast and barley, the main components of beer, have several health benefits. While soaking in beer is a newer practice in select spas across America, this practice has been used for centuries in European spas.
Health benefits of soaking in beer include:
- Improves damaged skin cells/skin conditions
The polyphenols (compounds from natural plant food sources) that are extracted from beer contain powerful antioxidants that aid in preventing the damage of skin cells. Studies have also shown that, when applied topically, beer may improve skin conditions such as eczema along with other skin infections.
Why spend money on expensive exfoliators when you can get similar results by just bathing in beer? The compounds found in beer are considered to be powerful anti-aging agents that help restore a more youthful appearance through exfoliating the skin and improving the elasticity of the skin.
- Reduces wrinkles
Epidermal growth factor, a compound that quickly and noticeably builds collagen – making fine lines and wrinkles disappear, is dominant in barley, one of the main ingredients of beer. Bathing in beer may reduce signs of aging and improve your overall skin texture.
The yeast and vitamins found in beer have been linked to aiding in skin hydration, something we all need during these cold, winter months.
