Looking to improve the health of your skin? Wine could be the answer!

by , 02 May 2013

Suffering with dry skin? Or are you battling with yet another acne breakout? It's all about what you put in - and on - your skin. Here's how to improve your skin's overall health just by stocking up on your favourite evening drink…

 
The eighth Wine Show is coming to Joburg from 3 to 5 May at the Sandton Convention Centre, says eNCA.
 
This makes it a great time to brush up on your wine facts.

For example, did you know that the typical glass of white wine has around 90 calories?
 
It’s true, says Wine.LovetoKnow
 
That’s about 10 calories less than the average glass of red wine, which has just under 100 calories on average, says FSP Health
 
But the health benefits of choosing white wine over red don’t stop with lower calories.
 
There are other health benefits to being more selective about the wine you drink.
 
In fact, drinking more wine could be a big health benefit for your skin.
 
Because drinking wine can help control acne by reducing inflammation on the skin and preventing free radical damage.
 
Dry skin? Drink more dry wine!
 
Then, if you have dry skin, it’s a good idea to go for a dry wine with high concentration of alpha hydroxy acids like citric, tartaric, and malic acid, says BoldSky
 
The reason?
 
This is extremely helpful in restoring the natural moisture of your skin, keeping it soft and supple!
 
Apply red wine directly to your skin as a toner…
 
And you don’t even need to drink the wine for your skin to improve.
 
Because dry red wine can be used directly on your skin as a toner, to tone your skin and give an even and smooth appearance – this also helps if you’re acne-prone. 
 
All you need to do exfoliate dead cells is mix one cup of white wine or white wine vinegar with one cup of bran for four 4 hours, and then use this as a face mask once in a week, adds BoldSky
 
There you have it! 
 
Two great ways to improve the quality of your skin with wine.
