Friday Fix: Cocktails that are actually good for your skin

Need a cocktail? Here are some ways to enjoy an end-of-the-week drink (or two) without sacrificing your skin’s dewy soft radiance. The key? Mind your mixers: don’t go for overly sugary or caffeinated sodas or juices (step away from the Red Bull, people). Instead, wash down your booze with these skin-boosting ingredients:

Cucumber: Cucumber is hydrating and cooling, known to soothe skin irritations and smooth uneven complexions. Try: a cucumber gin martini.

Lemon: Lemon is detoxifying and cleansing – it actually stimulates the liver. Think of it as vodka’s skin balancer. Try: a boozy sparkling lemonade.
