Who said Vodka is bad for skin?
Well, it’s unfortunate what vodka has done to Cameron Diaz’ skin texture, but I have a fun and quick at home recipe which uses VODKA to give you TIGHT and YOUNGER looking skin in minutes!
I have been a fan Ole Henriksen products for a few years now. Aside from his amazing line of products, he gives many tips and tricks on his website that include at home beauty recipes for scrubs, masks and treatments. My ABSOLUTE favorite is Ole’s Firming Ice Cube Treatment with, of course, vodka!
- 5 oz of fresh lemon juice
- 5 oz of strongly brewed rose hips tea
- 5 oz of strongly brewed mint tea
- 5 oz of vodka
Blend the ingredients together and pour into an ice cube tray. One ice cube can be used several times, simply put back in the freezer after use. Use by draping the ice cube with a thin cotton handkerchief, and let the active ingredients melt through the thin fabric. Glide across the entire face and throat for at least two minutes.
This treatment firms and tightens pores for smoother, younger looking skin.
Most of us already have a bottle of vodka lying around in the freezer and some lemons in the refrigerator (for vodka sodas, obviously!), so you would just need to go to a Whole Foods to get rose hip and mint tea.
Let me break down the ingredients for you and what they do for your skin since Mr. Henriksen was too cool for us to do that.
The ice cube brings down any bloated mess, vodka and lemon juice tighten pores and brighten the skin, rose hip tea calms any inflammation and mint tea promotes micro-circulation to impart a healthy glow.
I like to do this treatment in the mornings when my face may look a little puffy and be in dire need of deflation and a pick-me-up.
So there you have it! Now, if you decide for whatever reason you don’t like the treatment or you’re an alcoholic, I assure you this concoction makes for some awesome and HEALTHY drunken popsicles. True story.
