Wine in cosmetics has not started to be used until very recently. Scientific studies proved wine to be a source of unique natural antioxidants - polyphenols. They effectively degrade free radicals resulting in skin aging and loss of elasticity, protect lipids and proteins vital to skin, make skin smooth, supple and soft, and even reduce signs of cellulite. Fruit acids contained in grapes have regenerative, moisturizing and rejuvenescent qualities.
Red wine has antioxidants that protect your skin and prevent it from ageing. That’s why some beauty parlours are now providing red wine facials.

Red wine contains antioxidants such as tannin, flavonoids, and resveratrol that are good for the skin. Aside from drinking a glass of red wine to relax, try applying a small amount on your skin to fight free radicals that cause premature aging and restore elasticity in your skin.
One of the important red wine benefits for skin is that it contains natural acids called AHA which has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Applying red wine on your face can help reduce excess oil production, open the pores, and fight acne.
3. Damage Repair
Red wine contains amino acids that boost skin cell renewal. Its antioxidants can provide a protective barrier on the skin and help prevent sun damage when exposed to the sun. Although it is not a substitute for your sunscreen, you can use it for additional protection.
Antioxidants called polyphenols found in red wine prevent cell damage, help restore dull skin, and makes it glow. Directly apply red wine to your skin or mix a small amount of oatmeal before putting on your face. Leave it on for a few minutes then rinse.
5. Skin Toning
More red wine benefits for skin – it serves as a facial toner, which can tighten skin pores and lighten your skin tone. Simply soak a piece of cotton ball in red wine and apply on your face. Leave on for 20 minutes then rinse off. You can also try adding 5 teaspoons of red wine to one beaten egg (or yogurt) and two teaspoons of honey. Mix thoroughly and apply on your face. Let stand for 20 minutes before washing off with lukewarm water, (or buy one of our masks!)
6. Better Blood Circulation
Use red wine as a scrub or exfoliator to eliminate the dead skin cells. This helps improve the blood circulation in your face to give you glowing, healthy skin.
