Natural cosmetics, like kings and queens Part 8, Semiramis’s beer

Natural cosmetics, like kings and queens Part 8, Semiramis’s beer

Today we get inspired by the beauty routine of the legendary queen of Babylon Semiramis in order to make our hair healthy and glossy

It is said that the legendary Assyro

Babylonian queen Semiramis made the bath in beer to make the skin elastic and renewed and, above all, to strengthen the hair. After all, Semiramis was very careful to take care of her beauty. In fact, according to the legend, she was the first who created the first natural cosmetics obtained from the phytocosmetic plants that the queen grew on the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. So, why not take inspiration from Semiramis and create by ourselves simple but effective cosmetics able to protect the hair by making it luminous and healthy, a treatment really worthy of kings and queens? Let’s see the benefits to rinse the hair with beer. This drink contains indeed barley, hop and yeast that show antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties thanks to their active substances such as kaempferol, quercetin and ferulic acid (Chen et al, J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol, Feb 2014). Ferulic acid has also shown a protective action on the hair by playing a role in counteracting androgenetic alopecia, the main cause of hair loss in women and, above all, men (Tan et al, Front Pharmacol, Apr 2017). In addition to this, beer brings also proteins, vitamin B and mineral salts such as selenium, potassium, iron and zinc by nourishing the skin and the hair while the maltose, a sugar found in beer, repairs, tights and strengthens the hair cuticles by making the hair shiny (Denke et al, Am J Med Sci, Nov 2000). Because of these characteristics beer may be useful in case of dermatitis, itching of the scalp, is helpful to remove the excess of sebum, to make hair soft and glossy. Wash your hair with your usual shampoo, then massage the beer on the scalp and then from the roots until the hair ends. Leave on for ten minutes then rinse with water.
