Now, Use Wine For That Flawless Skin

The indigenous wines that are made from everything ranging from saunf (fennel seeds), kesar (saffron), strawberry, cardamom, rose and orange are fast making its way into beauty salons and how! Beauty therapists in Jaipur are using these wines to give their clients a glowing skin, and those getting the facials seem to love the effect!

Beauty expert Sabeljeet Singh has been using aromatic heritage wines sourced from wine makers in and around Jaipur to give facials to her clients. “Nothing can beat the glow of heritage wine facials. They have a purely herbal base and cure infections. They bring out clear, unblemished skin that has a pink tinge to it. I mix almond for dry skin and aloe vera for oily and acne prone skin while giving the message. This enhances the skin softening properties of the wine multifold,†says Sabaljeet.

“Grape wine rules the roost since it contains polyphenols, a very effective anti-oxidant and resveratrol that fight against free radicals, bacteria and fungi,†adds Sabaljeet.

Pinky Ahuja who has been regularly getting wine facial done at a city based clinic says, “I was quite curious to know how wines can work wonders for the skin. I got it done once and just loved the results. Wine gave an instant glow to the skin and also made my skin look clearer. I make sure I get a wine facial done every time I have to attend a party.â€

Aroma therapist Hitendra Chhabra has an interesting story to share about his discovery of heritage wines as a beauty product. A girl who had accidentally spilled some wine on her hand came to Hitendra with a little itching on her skin. While treating the skin, Chhabra noticed that her skin was glistening.

Hitendra wondered what effect wine could have on the skin and researched on wine treatments being carried out in some countries. To his surprise he found that wine has a magical effect on the skin. Now Hitendra uses wine made of saunf (fennel seeds), kesar (saffron), strawberry, cardamom, rose and orange which he sources from Jaipur while he imports grape wine from other countries.

“Saunf wine is very effective in treating skin allergy. Kesar wine helps in removing pigmentation while orange wine heals sun burns. Wine has a skin penetrating quality and is absorbed easily by the skin,†explains beautician Jasvinder Chhabra

“The facials are a little expensive because heritage wine itself is expensive. But the money you spend is worth the benefits you avail,†says Chhabra.

Beautician Sunita Padwa says wines are a blessing for the skin as they come loaded with essential vitamins and anti-oxidants that deep cleanse, tone the skin, improve the texture and also help lift up tan while removing the dead cells. And they smell as exotic as their names and feel great on your skin when applied. Now, can wines get any more tempting?

Says Pidwa, “Wine facials are becoming very popular in Jaipur. I have some regular clients who go for wine facials. We use wine serum to massage the skin which penetrates deeps into the skin and is absorbed quickly. We give a cold compression and wind up the procedure by applying a rich wine pack. We pick up different wines according to different skin types.â€

No, I would probably just end up drinking it.

Does drinking it have beneficial effects?

Actually a glass of wine daily IS good for your health, and I'm with you on this one - what a waste to rub it on your skin instead! :lol:
