While it may seem unconventional, beer is becoming more and more recognized for its beautifying powers.
It has a low pH and it's a good source of vitamins, making it a fabulous addition to products for your hair, skin, lips, and more. And with St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, why not go all out with some of these brew-infused beauty products (brew-ty products?)? Because while we will definitely still be raising a glass to the Irish holiday in a literal sense, these products will take your St. Paddy's Day to an entirely new level.
The best part? No hangover included.
