4 Best Cocktail Drinks for Your Skin

Whether you're up for a girls night out or a get together with your mates, you can be safe with ordering one of these 5 cocktails. Alcohol can be a devastating source for your skin if you drink too much (remember the old days when you were a party animal...?). It not only dehydrates your skin but also makes your skin look dull and causes break-outs. Rest assured with these 5 cocktail drinks - you can have fun at the same time feeding your skin "the right way."


Perhaps sangria is one of the healthiest alcoholic drinks that you could have with plenty of fruits and wine. Wine is packed with flavonoids and resveratrol - these are groups of plants and antioxidants that helps prevent and reduce the damage of free radicals on the skin. 

For those of you who wants to make it at home, a rule of thumb for selecting fruits: Go with cool color fruits for white wine (green apples, green grapes, oranges, and pineapples). Go with warm color fruits for red wine (red apples, red grapes, raspberries, and strawberries). Slice fruits into a pitcher, add wine, refrigerate it overnight - the longer you let it marinates, the stronger fruit flavor.

Mango Mojito

Mango itself is loaded beta-carotene, an antioxidant and a form of Vitamin A that protects skin from sun damage and is essential to soft and healthy skin. It also has does of vitamins A, C, and , which keep the skin firm and glowing. It also helps reduce acne scarring as well.

Bloody Mary

This vodka tomato-juice base drink is is filled with lycopene, which is an antioxidant that keeps skin looking younger by protecting it from sun damage. Lycopene blocks UV lights, fights free radicals, and preserves healthy skin cells. However, if you're suffering from rosacea this may not be an ideal drink for you.

Green Tea Martini

The catechins in green tea help to rejuvenate skin cells, protects against skin cancer, and soothe acne. For your green tea martini, I'd say add a wedge of orange or lime for a kick of flavor and bring in a little extra vitamin C.
