I’ve been preaching for years about how important it is to take care of your skin and body. I constantly stress the importance of eating healthy, exercising daily, wearing sunscreen and taking the necessary steps in proper skin care to keep yourself youthful. I also have mentioned how bad alcohol and smoking is for your overall health. Then along comes an alcoholic beverage that claims to be your skin savior. If you’re a gin martini fan then you might want to keep reading.
Anti Aging Gin Rejuvenates Your Skin?
There’s a new product on the market for all you booze fans. The product is called Anti-aGin and it supposedly claims to help rejuvenate your skin. The question is whether or not this is truly an age-defying cocktail masterpiece or if it’s just a simple marketing gimmick.
Anti-aGin is 40 proof gin that has been distilled with collagen and herb based products that are said to improve your skin. Ingredients such as chamomile and witch hazel have been added to the product to help further prevent your skin from looking old and worn.
Based on what’s displayed on the product’s website, it seems as though the site owners are not shy in their belief of the product and what it does. The site reads, “By including a host of age-defying botanicals and combining them with drinkable collagen, this is the alcoholic equivalent of a facial.” While I’m sure there are many individuals that are willing to test this out, I’m not a firm believer just yet. (Besides, pills exist for that.)
Some doctors are beginning to disagree with the benefactors of consuming this anti aging alcoholic beverage. Indiana Professor Dr. David Crabb has spent is time researching the effects of alcohol and absorption of nutrients in our bodies. He stated, “There may be very small amounts absorbed, but not amounts that might have an effect on a large organ like the skin,” and for that reason alone I can stand to remain somewhat skeptical.
I should mention that the product also claims to stop the formation of scars and even reduce cellulite. The problem is the lack of evidence that exists. My point is, I’d strongly suggest that you not go out and use this as an excuse to get drunk all the time in hopes of having clearer skin. The end result would certainly not be in your favor. Grab an ice cold water with lemon instead. Cheers!
