Oh red wine. Is there anything it can’t do? Delicious, good for the heart AND good for your skin? It sounds too good to be true, but my glowing complexion is proof!
Maybe you’re saying, “red wine on my face? Shouldn’t it be going IN my face?” We’ve all heard that a glass a day of red wine is good for your heart, but thanks to being rich with an antioxidant called Resveratrol, it also has loads of anti-aging benefits for your skin.
This is perfect for those situations when you’ve got a close-to-empty bottle of red that you aren’t sure what to do with. This DIY mask is great if you’re looking for a skin care treatment that does triple duty: red wine with it’s anti-aging properties, honey (a natural anti-inflammatory) to handle any blemishes and redness and yogurt to leave your skin soft and moisturized.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup of plain yogurt
2 tablespoons of honey
4 to 5 tablespoons of red wine
In a medium sized bowl, combine the yogurt, honey, and red wine one at a time and in that order. Stir until the mixture is blended and apply a generous layer to your face. Let it work its magic on your skin for about 20 minutes and wipe off with a warm washcloth.
My skin looked great afterwards, and since the ingredients are gentle I didn’t break out or experience any kind of irritation. I definitely look forward to incorporating this facial into my skincare routine and enjoying a glass of wine while I pamper myself!
