Yes, ladies you read that right! Today is all about wine, which means I have a justifiable reason to be writing this while sipping a big ol’ glass of wine. Not that I needed a justified reason….
We all know how beneficial a glass of red wine can be to our overall health – the antioxidant content, the heart-healthy Resveratrol, the Cancer prevention properties, and even the anti-tooth decay elements make this tasty libation the smarter choice once wine o’clock hits.
But did you know that it is also insanely good for your skin? I mean, in case wine o’clock couldn’t get any better now you can save the bottom of that bottle to use on your face! Don’t worry, you only need a little bit of red wine to make this red wine facial mask. Please drink the rest.
How To Make a Red Wine Facial Mask
If you have acneic or oily skin and love red wine, you may just develop a serious girl crush on me as this red wine facial mask is all for you!
The process is easy. Pour yourself a big glass of red and gather up these ingredients:
- 1 egg white
- 3 tablespoons of red wine
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon of raw sugar
From there, simply:
- grab a small bowl and combine your four ingredients
- take a sip of your wine (from your glass not the bowl, silly)
- give your ingredients a good stir until they are all evenly combined
- using your hands, scoop out some of your mixture and slather it all over your face
- massage into your skin for about a minute
- let it sit on your skin for up to 10 minutes
- rinse off with warm water and pat dry
Like I mentioned above, red wine is massively underused when it comes to skincare. Not only does it help to fight free radicals but it can also help improve blood circulation, reduce wrinkles, increase your skin’s elasticity, detoxify the surface of your skin and give your skin that glow we all covet.
Add that to the exfoliating action of raw sugar, the natural hydration of honey, and the tightening power of the egg whites and you have yourself one seriously potent anti-aging face masks!
So next time you feel like drinking a bottle…I mean…a glass of red make sure you save yourself a few drops and make your own red wine facial – your skin, and your lack of hangover, will thank you for it!
But before you run off and crack open a bottle, I want to hear from you!
