Tequila gets a bad rap. Most times you’ll hear people complaining about the Mexican-based liquor causing overnight blackouts, stomach issues, serious hangovers, and basically every other upsetting, alcoholic side effect in the medical book.
You’d be surprised to hear the health and skincare benefits that come with downing a shot. Tequilas made from 100% agave possess mystical beauty powers that can impact a person’s entire appearance from their sex drive to their skin texture.
Drinking in moderation is the only true way of experiencing these virtues. So don’t view this as an open invitation to increase your Don Julio intake when hitting the bar this weekend.
Tequila Acts As A Sexual Confidence Booster
Cocktails are seductive, especially certain tequila-based ones. Interestingly enough, the distilled alcohol is rich in fructans, plus acts as a probiotic and prebiotic that feeds the body healthy bacteria to balance out the immune system. Recent studies suggest that probiotics can enhance your sexual drive, with preliminary studies being done on laboratory mice showing they inseminated partners at a faster rate and increased the weight of their testicles by 5%. How randy.
Tequila Makes For A Mean Skin Exfoliant
Tequila is considered a cleaning analgesic. In other words, it bears astringent properties that remove excess dirt and oil from the skin. Many luxury spas are using it as an ingredient for skin treatments, detoxifying and tightening pores. You can achieve similar results by creating a DIY Margarita Salt Scrub combining 1-2 tablespoons of tequila with other ingredients to moisturize your outer shell. Adding lime into the mix helps since it’s a natural soothing and skin conditioner.
Tequila Shreds The Fat
One of the biggest misconceptions of weight loss is you must eliminate alcohol entirely to maintain a hot figure. Bullshit. It’s possible to wet one’s whistle and stabilize your diet. Tequilas boast a specialty sugar named agavin that carries weight-loss properties and doesn’t increase blood sugar levels. It also reduces fats and sparks metabolism to burn (you guessed it) calories.
