So, a chain of hotels in the UK called Warner Leisure Hotels that caters to 50 something peeps on vacay, commissioned the development of Anti-AGin, a gin that, instead of aging your skin as alcohol does, actually antiages your skin.
What Warner claims makes this gin anti-aging, is the fact that it’s distilled with pure collagen, but that’s not all. It also contains some natural ingredients known for their anti-aging properties, such as:
- Juniper – Detoxification (like a natural toner)
- Chamomile – Anti-Inflammatory and skin soothing properties
- Licorice – Improves hyperpigmentation
- Green Tea- Detoxification
- Witch Hazel – Antibacterial
- Gotu Kola – Helps reduce cellulite and sun damage
- Chamomile – General healing and repair
Anti-AGin contains 40% alcohol (which means it’s 80 proof) and can be purchased at any Warner Leisure Hotel or for £34.99 ($51.07) online at DrinkSupermarket.com .
So, does this cleverly-named, uber marketed, happy spirit really peel off those party lines? Doubtful.
Chances are, the collagen introduced to your body will get broken down by your stomach acids before they get a chance to join the front lines of anti-aging. Bummer.
And it’s doubtful that the benefits of ingredients such as chamomile and licorice can offset the negative impact of drinking alcohol to begin with (like premature wrinkles, rosacea, and loss of elasticity).
So, youth elixir? I think not. But, cute little gag gift on your besties 40th? I can go with that!
