It’s official sausages are great for your skin!
It may be hard to believe- but let’s face it if snail slime can be good for your skin, anything can!
Long gone are the days of traditional face masks, moisturisers and cucumber slices for your eyes. 2017 is the year that the humble sausage will revolutionise your beauty regime.
Here are 5 surprising ways in which sausages can feature in your daily beauty routine:
A Sausage a Day…
The fats which are found in sausage (pork are best, but beef or chicken can also provide visible benefits) help the collagen which is found in your skin to rejuvenate. What this means is that eating a sausage every day can help to repair damage caused by the sun, environment or poor skincare and actually make you look younger… goodbye wrinkles!
For Your Eyes!
Now bear with us here - you’re probably more than familiar with cucumber eye masks, but did you know that a spicy sausage can do the job even better. Next time you want your eyes to look radiant and refreshed, why not try a slice of Chorizo over each eye? The slight spice in the sausage invigorates the skin around the eyes, whilst the fats helps to moisturise the eyelid and surrounding skin.
Pump Up The Volume!
Simply holding a sausage between your lips for 5 minutes will give you bigger, fuller lips and give you a pout to die for! The porous skin in the lips absorbs fat from the sausage through an osmosis- type reaction which gives you temporary effects akin to fillers - all the gain without the needles!
Bye-Bye Unwanted Hair!
Ditch the wax and grab a sausage (the cheaper the better for this one)! The chemicals which are found in cheap, processed sausages can help to dissolve unwanted hair. Containing a variant of the active ingredient which is found in hair removal cream, smearing a sausage on that unwanted hair this summer could be cheaper than that branded hair removal cream…
The Best Facial.
Next time your skin is feeling tired, try this:
2 high quality butchers sausages,skinned
Squeeze of lemon juice
1 small handful of capers
1 small bunch of parsley, roughly chopped
Place all of the above ingredients into a food processor and blend until they form a smooth, paste-like consistency.
Once the paste is formed, spread evenly all over the face and neck and leave for 10-15 minutes, before washing off with warm water and patting your skin dry.
The combination of ingredients help to tighten pores, reduce wrinkles, even skin-tone, prevent acne and give you a glow, unlike anything else!
Oh, One More Thing….
On a serious note, please don’t try any of the above...it’s probably not the best idea!
