Cocktails rarely equal better skin. Any dermatologist will tell you that too much alcohol can lead to dehydration, angry flare-ups and the formation of fine lines. So why do we say rarely? Well, your go-to French 75 may not be a complexion-booster, but that's not to say a virgin cocktail will have the same negative impact on your pores. Nonalcoholic cocktails are proving more popular than ever, with a new study revealing that one in five millennials are willing to go teetotal in order to save money.
The report, titled Brighter Futures: Challenging Perceptions of Millennials, also stated that 42% of us are drinking less alcohol than we did three years ago. With party season coming up, that puts finding the perfect mocktail high on the agenda—and you might as well order one that's packed with skin, mood and body benefits. They're also perfect for anyone who's pregnant during the festive season.
From a flu-fighting ginger concoction to a lavender fizz that's as relaxing as a glass of wine, keep scrolling for delicious virgin cocktails made for healthy hedonists.
