Boozy Beauty: Alcohol-Inspired Products For Your Next Happy Hour

Sip on these benefits

The fashion and beauty industries often work in threes: The first time you see something, it’s an incident, the second time is a coincidence, the third time is most definitely a trend. So when a third beauty product, featuring alcohol I am more used to seeing in a glass at my local bar on a Thursday night than in a serum bottle, landed on my desk, I stopped to think. Was alcohol-infused beauty the next big It Thing in the pampering realm?

Never the one to be swayed by momentary trends and fads, I admit that my interest piqued. Was there a way to indulge in boozy behavior without the risk of a dreaded hangover and bloat the next day, and with the added bonus of radiant skin and shinier hair? After diving in and drinking (research up) like a fish, I must say, I was surprised to find that there was a number of brands—with alcohol-influenced histories and, more importantly, science to back up their claims—that left me happily buzzed.
