Wine for Wow Skin

Are you a wine lover? Well, your skin may love to feast on it, too. Because of its rejuvenating properties, wine facial is fast becoming a popular trend. 

Why wine is good… 
According to cosmetic surgeon Dr Satish Arolkar, l-tartaric acid in wine stimulates the development of new cells in the skin’s outer layers. Yeast is ideal for teenagers and acne-prone skin as it has a multitude of nutrients — especially zinc — which clears the skin. “Also, Riboflavin helps the immune system. Organic wine facials have immense health and beauty benefits because they are packed with antioxidants like flavonoid, resveratrol and tannin. They fight free radicals and help maintain a youthful and glowing skin. They are rich in amino acids that boosts skin renewal and prevents sun damage,” he adds.

Clients say cheers! 
Shenaira Advani (name changed), a 33-year-old lawyer, recently indulged in an organic wine facial. “I tried it out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised by the results. My skin looked much younger, supple and glowing,” she says.
