DIY Anti-aging Red Wine Face Mask

11 Apr

Good Morning Readers!

Today I’ve got an especially wonderful treat to soothe that tired weekend skin. We know you have that last little bit of red wine left in the bottle, intentionally left to rationalize the fact that you didn’t down the whole bottle while watching Pretty In Pink. Well rest assured that you can now feel confident that your wine scraps will be used for a greater good than your mental health… we’re talking about good ‘ole skin rejuvenation! Your skin will be feeling firmer, cleaner, brighter, and a bit younger with each use of this luscious (no pun intended) mask.

What you need:

1 Egg White

3 Tbsp Red Wine

1 Tbsp Honey

1 Tsp Sugar

How To Use It:

1. Mix ingredients until they are combined to a smooth paste.

2. After washing all makeup off with warm water, spread onto face & neck with fingertips, and gently exfoliate using circular motions. Avoid eye areas. Test the mixture on a small patch of skin first to ensure you don’t have any allergic reactions to the ingredients.

3. Wait 10 minutes.

4. Wash the mask off completely with warm water.

5. Finish off with a splash of cool water to shrink those pores.

How It Works:

Reservatrol is an active ingredient found in grape skins, used for making red wine. Reservatrol is thought by scientists to have anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and some believe anti-cancer effects. While red wine serves as a powerful anti-oxidant, honey is highly antibacterial… making this mask great for acne and eczema prone individuals. The sugar gently exfoliates skin while the egg white tightens and tones. A perfect combination for tired weekend skin!

Why We Love It:

This mask is gentle enough to be used daily, yet powerful enough to use monthly! We love low-maintenance regimens, don’t you?! Finish off with a powerful night-time moisturizer and wake up feeling & looking refreshed! For a great moisturizer, see our favorites below:
