Not Just for Drinking … Wine for Skin Care – Vine Vera Reviews

Wine for skin careWe all know that red wine has many health benefits, including lowering the risk of high cholesterol, heart disease, and high blood pressure, but did you know that red wine is also great for your skin?

Obviously, we should always remember to drink in moderation, but your skin can benefit greatly from many different topical applications of red wine, as well as drinking it in the old fashioned way. What a great excuse to grab a bottle of good old red!

Wine facials?

Yes, they do exist! Because red wine has many benefits to the skin, applying it directly make sense, right? The anti-ageing properties of wine help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, rejuvenates the skin, and also helps to remove blemishes, as well as giving you a very relaxing treatment indeed.

Goodbye wrinkles

If you don’t fancy the idea of a wine facial in a salon, you can do your own version, simply by using a cotton ball and applying red wine to the face. This has many benefits, not least helping to restore lost collagen supplies and elastin in the skin. What does this do? Reduces wrinkles, plumps up your complexion, and helps to give you a healthy, rosy glow. This has also been proven to lighten skin pigmentation too. This is all down to the fact that red wine is full of flavonoid, resveratrol and tannin, important antioxidants for our skin.

Reduces inflammation

Red wine contains anti-inflammatory properties, and when it is applied directly to the face it helps to clear the skin, helping to rid acne and help congestion problems.

Fights the sun’s effects

Now, bear in mind that you should always wear sunscreen regardless of any other treatment you’re using, but red wine contains valuable amino acids, which have been shown to fight the sun’s rays and its problematic effects. Consider it an extra defence mechanism in your armour.

Produce new skin cells

Another very beneficial effect of red wine is that it helps promote the development of fresh new skin cells, and when used in conjunction with an exfoliator to get rid of the old cells, you are left with fresh, plump, and youthful looking new outer layers. What does this do? It makes you look younger!

Red wine has countless beneficial effects, not only for general heath, but also for the skin, hair, and even your nails. Drinking red wine in moderation could be fantastic for your overall wellbeing. What better excuse do you need?
