Sake for Skin

Maybe some of you might have heard that sake makes your skin look younger and more radiant. This theory started as scientists visited a sake brewery found that the elderly working on making sake had young looking hands but wrinkled faces.


This discovery lead people to find out that there are enzymes produced in the making of sake that have moisturizing properties. Beyond that, there are different natural chemical produced during the fermentation process that are beneficial to both skin and health.


A sake bath can help cure dry skin and add moisture to it. Nest time you take one, add 3 to 4 cups of sake to the hot water and soak in it for about 30 minutes, You will notice the difference in your skin to be softer and more radiant.


During the sake making kojic acid is produced which is a great ally in getting rid of age spots and freckles. Many face creams have added this element on their formulas but it can also be effective to rub it into your skin with a cotton ball followed by a moisturizing cream.


Other health benefits related to sake are glowing skin, improved cardiovascular health, and anti aging. Remember that everyone is different and before trying any of these tips, you should check either with a physician if you are drinking it or on a small section of your skin to make sure there are no side effects. If any of them works out for you... I'd love to hear about it!

Have a great and healthy day!
