I love this bubbly delicious drink and was very surprised when I found out that it actually can be used not just to drink it but also for beauty. While this bubbly drink is first and foremost is being used as celebratory drink and it might seem like an odd thing to work into your skincare routine but the truth is that the polyphenols in champagne actually help to reduce redness and tighten skin. Other healing ingredients in the simple and easy-to-make DIY face mask include powdered Bentonite clay and either cream or plain yogurt, which also work wonders on the skin on their own. To prepare, these ingredients are blended together before applying to the skin to dry.
Hello Natural also provides a number of other beautifying remedies infused with champagne, such as a bath soak and a sparkling hair rinse.
How to make Champagne Mask
- 1/4 cup champagne
- 4 ounces powdered clay (Bentonite is a great choice)
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream, half and half or plain yogurt
Start with the powdered clay in a mixing bowl and slowly pour in the cream. if you decide to use heavy cream or yogurt with a high fat content you might want to reduce the amount, gently mix in the cream and clay as you pour. Then add in the champagne while mixing the mask the entire time. Apply to face and neck before it starts to dry. The mask should take about 20 minutes to dry. Then rinse with warm water and a washcloth.
