Helps Fight Signs Of Ageing

If you wish to keep your skin looking young forever, the solution lies in the bottle of red wine. Did you know that it contains antioxidants such as resveratrol and flavonoid that helps fight off signs of ageing? The presence of tannins helps boost collagen production, thus keeping the skin firm and supple.

Brightens Skin

Red wine contains polyphenols that help brighten the skin’s complexion, which is why it is a popular choice of facial across the globe.

Besides that, it also evens out the skin tone and makes your skin glow from within. We bet if you’re an avid red wine drinker, you must have noticed all the positive changes in your skin already! And if you don’t like red wine, do not get disheartened as you can always spray in on your face to reap its benefits.

How To Use Red Wine On Your Face

If you are looking forward to #GreatSkin days, red wine might do that for you. There’s a reason why so many spas offer wine-infused services such as facials, full-body spa, etc. because, who doesn’t like wine? But, you know, those services are hella expensive too.

Here’s how you can use your red wine on your face because your skin loves it too!

As A Toner

Since red wine is loaded with antioxidants that make your skin better with every use, you can replace your usual toner with it. Simply pour a few drops on a cotton ball and dab it into your skin. Yes, it will stain your face a little bit so its better if you use it during the daytime so you can wash it after a few hours on over the weekend.

You can also mix it with a few drops of lemon juice and use it as a DIY face cleanser before washing your face.

To Remove Dead Skin

Scrubbing your face twice a week is a great way to get rid of the nitty gritties and dead skin off your face. And you can totally use your fave red wine to create a DIY face scrub.

Mix 2 tbsps sugar with 2 tbsp ground rice and 3-5 tbsps of red wine and apply it on your face. Use this DIY wine face scrub twice a week for optimal results.

As A Face Pack

Nothing works on the skin like a face mask. Double the benefits of red wine by using it as a face pack. Simply mix two tbsps yogurt, one tbsp honey and a few drops of red wine and apply it on your face. Leave it for about 20 minutes and wash it off!
