Wine

Wine.

Yes, we know there are health benefits in a glass of wine.  Yes, we know it makes us relaxed and breezy.  Yes, it makes us beautiful. Yes, yes, yes.

  • Wine contains resveratrol, a divine polyphenol compound that is anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic
  • According to research, the flavonoids in wine boosts our skin’s sun protection, lowering the risk of skin cancer*
  • Wine’s polyphenols defeat free radicals
  • Wine’s relaxing properties also slow down premature aging

To get these beauty benefits, sip on one glass of wine a day.  Drinking more than one glass of wine a day may reverse its anti-aging properties and put your health at risk for other diseases, such as breast cancer.  If you are seeking the most polyphenols, go with red wine.  Take your sips one step further by drinking organic wine.

*Imbibing that wine is not your new sunscreen replacement.  Sip and apply as usual, Beauty.

  •  1 cup of plain organic yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons of red wine

Mix wine and yogurt together in a resealable container and bring to room temperature. Lightly steam face by applying a hot wet towel to face for 5 minutes or after a hot shower. Apply mask to face and keep for 10-15 minutes.  Rinse with cool water. Store remaining in refrigerator for future uses. Apply mask once a week.

The lactic acid in the yogurt and wine sloughs dead skin cells, while the polyphenols get all anti-aging fantastic on yo pores.

Cheers, Beauties!
