Brighten Your Complexion With This DIY Geisha-Approved Beauty Remedy

Associate Beauty Producer

If you want to wake up with a more radiant, even complexion tomorrow, do as the geishas do and use some sake! According to Alexis Wolfer, founder of The Beauty Bean and author of The Recipe For Radiance, sake has the power to fade sun and age spots: An acid found in the Japanese drink helps control the body's production of melanin, which is responsible for hyperpigmentation.

For a bedtime treatment that really packs a punch, Wolfer recommends combining an ounce of unfiltered sake with a half ounce of orange juice and a half ounce of lime juice and applying with a cotton pad (avoid the eye area and open or irritated skin). In addition to treating discoloration, the DIY serum cleanses, protects and brightens skin.
