Use Booze For Beauty – 5 Ways To Pamper Before Your Party

There’s so much more to throwing a cocktail party than just food and drinks! If you want to look like a STAR at your party, of course you need to pamper yourself before greeting your guests at the door!  Good thing you will have a selection of liquid libations on hand for these booze infused beauty treatments! So get ready to get gorgeous from head to toe with a little help from your bar with these 5 beauty treatments we found at The Beauty Bean. I must say they are really on to something here…you should check them out sometime!



Melon Martini Manicure
Give yourself a DIY hand treat perfect for reviving dry, winter hands. Mix Bacardi (which acts as an antiseptic), lime juice (rich alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate dead skin cells), sugar (for manual exfoliation), olive oil (to moistuize), shredded coconut (to exfoliate and add a tropical scent) and mashed cantaloupe (rich in antioxidants and vitamin A) and apply to hands (or feet). Massage into skin for 2-3 minutes before rinsing and following with your polish of choice!

Beer Pedicure
If you’re in need of a pedicure but are looking to save the money, give yourself an exfoliating pedicure at home! Fill a bowl or basin with enough warm water to cover your ankles and pour in half of a bottle of beer. The yeast in the beer will soften the bottoms of feet while the alcohol kills bacteria and works as a natural antiseptic. Keep your feet in the mixture for 10-15 minutes before moisturizing and polishing. If your feet need even more love, use a foot file to further scrub your feet before applying lotion.

Margarita Body Scrub
If your body needs an invigorating scrub to revive dull, dry skin, make a margarita scrub! Mix salt (to exfoliate), tequila (to cleanse), olive oil (to moisturize), lime juice (to loosen dead skin cells) and slather the mixture onto damp skin in gentle circular motions. Let sit for a few minutes before rinsing.

Red Wine Facial Mask
We all know that wine is a powerful antioxidant, but did you know that you can use the leftovers from last night’s bottle (if there are any!) for a naturally firming and anti-aging mask? Well, you can! Combine 1 egg white (to firm and tighten fine lines and wrinkles), 3 tablespoons of red wine (for its antioxidant benefits) and honey (to hydrate) and leave on your face for 10-15 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

Champagne Marinade for Shine
Champagne isn’t just for sipping. Rather, it’s for your hair too! So, pop a bottle before a big night out and as you sip a glass of bubbly, let your hair marinate in a mixture of one-half cup of champagne and one half cup of water. Your hair will be shinier and more lustrous, without the heft price of an in-salon treatment.

Now you are ready to PARTY!
