You absolutely can still have wine for appetizers and pleasure but this new way of using it for promoting skin health is absolutely new and absolutely stunning! That is – it’s not as new as we may think, but it’s started being practiced recently which is why we are still in awe about it.
What you may have not known is that, “throughout history, wine has been used as facial to treat skin in a natural way. For ages, homemade toners and masks with wine helped in treating skin problems, such as acne or eczema, and in exfoliation and repair of damaged skin” so today – modern-day experts realized one of the best way to promote skin health is turn to wine for help. We love it!
Grapes, wine’s main ingredient, is the true source of benefits when it comes to this remedy; since grapes contain natural antioxidants polyphones which detoxify, soften and exfoliate skin, repair damages on the surface level and they can cool inflammation.
How Does It Work?
The skin will be healthy due to resveratrol, a type of polyphenol found in both red and white grapes; ingredients found in white wine are known to stimulate circulation, ease the nerves, rejuvenate the skin and increase its elasticity. Because of this, your skin will be bright and glowing. Also, it can help treat acne and eczema, since white wine detoxifies skin and fights free radicals. For everyone with sensitive and fair skin, white wine is the right choice as it tightens open pores.
How Do I Make White Wine Facial Cleanser?
It’s pretty easy and you can make it in your own kitchen in a few moments. This is how – all you need are these ingredients:
6 tbsp of white wine
3 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp if vinegar
You will also need a bowl into which you can mix the ingredients and a few empty bottles (depending on the amount you want to make). Also, any of wine specials you can find at the liquor store may be used for this mask which is great because you probably already have them in your fridge/pantry – so no added costs.
Mix the ingredients together once you put them in a bowl and you are, practically, done. Yes, you are! Just pour the mixture into a clean bottle and keep it in a cool place – it can be a refrigerator or a cold pantry, even your balcony during cold winter days. If you treat it properly, your magic white wine mask can last up to six or eight months without going bad.
The way to use it
Rinse your face thoroughly with warm water before applying the cleanser to your face. Tap the skin in order not to damage it – using a towel can just bring more trouble than benefit. Using cotton wool, pour some of your white wine cleanser on it and then apply it on all areas of your face. Circular movements are welcome for application but you can really choose whichever way fits you. Avoid contact with the eyes. After a few minutes you’ll feel the mask drying and it may even get a bit sticky, due to lemon. Gently rinse the cleanser off with warm water and pat dry your face again.
This white wine facial will not only help with resolving facial skin problems, but it will have a beneficial impact on the rest of your skin, too, especially if you have trouble with acne and big pores. Good luck on your journey to glowing skin and amazing complexion!
