Stop everything! Now, you can reverse the aging process while enjoying happy hour — or at least that's what the makers of a new alcoholic beverage are claiming.
The gin, called Anti-aGin (see that they did there) promotes itself as the "alcoholic equivalent of a facial" and promises to keep the skin looking refreshed, even after a night of heavy drinking.
The 40 per cent proof gin is distilled with pure collagen and was created by anti-ageing expert Nicky Hambleton-Jones, who you might remember from the TV One show, 10 Years Younger.
The concoction also contains wrinkle-defying, premium botanicals like chamomile, tea tree, gotu kola, witch hazel and nettle.
But is there any science behind it?
According to a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology earlier this year, people who take daily collagen supplements do have more hydrated and smoother looking skin.
Whether or not these benefits can be transmitted in gin form has yet to be researched but countless studies have shown that alcohol can accelerate the ageing of your skin.
