The liquid has vast dermatological benefits when applied to skin, including reducing skin irritations, balancing pH levels, dissolving dead skin cells, clearing pores and increasing elasticity.

Paul Keenan, Manager at Ruffians said: “Our hope is that customers leave our shop every day feeling revitalised and ready to boss it – and with this special beer treatment, we’re providing that in a really unique way.

“We pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve on grooming trends, and we’re looking forward to introducing this experience to our clients.”

Angus Lawrie, Brand Manager at Heverlee said: “Together with Ruffian’s, we’ve created a unique treatment that leaves beer-lovers and wellness-seekers’ skin feeling revitalised, as they prepare to ease out of Dry January.

“Many historic beer treatments come from Heverlee’s Belgian home, and since the town of ‘Spa’, where the term was originated, is only an hour away from our beer’s spiritual home in Leuven, it couldn’t be more perfect.”
