Oooohhh, Wine Me All Over!

Feeling a bit tired this morning as that large glass of pinot grigio did me in. Going to purchase a cup of jamal in about 20 minutes. Wanted to share with you that wine need not only be enjoyed on the pallette.

Grapes have antioxidant properties that are second to none. Antioxidants protect the skin from free radicals and assist in repairing cellular damage. They are essential to aging gracefully. Common antioxidants are vitamins A, C, E and beta carotene.

Some products that contain wine and grape seed oil are replete with these skin saving properties.
Here' what I like:
Shea Cuvee Body Butter
A moisturizing body butter containing a unique combination of brown sugar, grapeseed oil and white wine, along with shea butter, and vitaminsby the Napa Soap Company. Purchase at Nimly for $20.

Sake Bath
Inspired by traditional Japanese bathing techniques, this product incorporates the detoxifying powers of rice, the relaxing effects of ginger and pine, and it contains an infusion of peaches, a beauty tradition taken from the geisha. This product is out of this world, as is the price. $80 at Fresh.

Crushed Cabernet Scrub
Luxuriating blend of grape seed oil, crushed grape seed, brown sugar, acacia honey and essential oils. Purchase at Caudalie for $35.
