Sure, we’ve all heard that drinking red wine in moderation has many potential health benefits, like reducing bad cholesterol, boosting heart health, aiding digestion, and even boosting mood, but did you know that applying red wine topically has benefits of its own?
Loaded with antioxidants and natural alphahydroxy acids, red wine in skincare helps restore collagen, has antiseptic properties, clears clogged pores, and prevents future breakouts. Powerful antioxidants known as polyphenols are the rock stars found in red wines like our Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, and Montepulciano—they pack a punch when it comes to fighting free radicals, which cause premature aging.
Now we’re not suggesting that you slather on an entire bottle of your favorite Ponte wine—all you need are a few spoonfuls for this DIY mask and you’ll be good to go. Combined with the healing benefits of avocado and high-quality olive oil, this simple clean-beauty recipe will leave your skin feeling hydrated, soft, supple, and refreshed. Pour yourself a glass of your favorite Ponte wine and read on for our easy skin-loving face mask recipe. Wishing you a Valentine’s Day that’s loaded with self-care, love, health, and happiness!
