One of my favorite things in life has to be champagne. And while most of us love indulging in our favorite champagne, we don’t realize that it’s not just for sipping. Your favorite bubbly is also great for your hair and in your skin care routine. Champagne skin care and champagne hair treatment are perfect at this time of year. Detoxifying isn’t something we normally think of when we hear the word “champagne,” but it works amazingly well as a detoxifying toner and can benefit normal to oily skin. What’s more, it’s also a great hair treatment. At home skin and hair treatments for a big night out with a bottle of bubbly? Sounds right up our alley.
With any new toner, especially one made at home, I’m concerned with the alcohol content because it can be very drying. Turns out, champagne actually contains less alcohol than a lot of toners that you find at the store. Carbon dioxide is also very present in champagne and it helps constrict your pores, detoxify and fight free radicals. All in all, this is a very good anti-aging skin care product if your skin is a little more oily than normal. Using champagne in your skin care will help make your skin firmer and give you a gorgeous glow. Skin care for oily skin can be difficult to manage at home, but bust out the bottle and pour a little into a dish or bowl. Start with clean skin so it’s ready for the toner. Take a cotton round or cotton ball and soak it with the champagne. At this point, you’re also free to take a few sips of course. Take the cotton round and gently squeeze out the excess champagne, so it’s not dripping wet. Using the cotton round, apply all over your face, neck and décolleté. It’ll feel very light and cool and you will be able to feel the carbonation on your skin. The detoxifying begins, and looking at the cotton round, you’ll be shocked at how much dirt and debris that it’s already picked up. Let it sit for about 20-30 seconds and follow up with your favorite moisturizer. Skin care for oily skin has never been easier.
At home hair treatments are an easy way to keep your hair healthy. And this one gives you an excuse to pop your bottle earlier in the day to prep for any big night out. According to hair expert Joel Warren from Warren-Tricomi, champagne makes for an excellent hair treatment, particularly if your hair’s blond. One of our all time favorite hair tips for getting smooth, silky locks: mix one-half cup of your favorite champagne with one-half cup of hot water. Distribute the mix evenly throughout your hair and let it marinate while you are preparing yourself for a night of luxury or fun. Rinse out and style for a head of gorgeous, lustrous hair.
