Forget the glass of wine that accompanies your favourite dish: from today onwards, wine is used for beauty treatments.
It’s harvest time, but for a few years now, this has no longer only been about making wine to accompany your meals. Indeed, wine has a high level of antioxidants, making it an excellent anti-age tonic for the skin, and a useful ingredient in many beauty treatments.
Indeed, it is a well-known fact that the flavonoid component present in grapes, and above all in red wine, can improve the elasticity of the skin by favouring cell regeneration. The grape seeds also help counteract free radicals, the main factors to blame for skin ageing.
Here is a beauty treatment made to be tried and… tasted!
Preparing this anti-age mask, which makes the skin brighter and more elastic, is very simple and can easily be done at home, using red wine, an excellent ally in the struggle to beat the signs of time, as it contains resveratrol and polyphenols, powerful substances with anti-oxidising properties. After an anti-age mask, the alcohol will leave the skin looking rosier and brighter, whereas the yoghurt and honey have moisturising properties to make the skin feel soft and velvety.
The ingredients you will need are:
Mix two tablespoons of natural yoghurt, two of red wine and two of honey in a bowl, blending until you obtain a smooth mixture. Apply the product to the face, taking care in the eye contour area and leave on for approximately 15 minutes. Then rinse with plenty of warm water: your skin will instantly look rosier and more radiant!
