How to Make A Wine Face Mask Your Skin Will Love!

Avocado, papaya, mud: if you love a good face mask, you’ve probably tried it all. But have you tried to make a wine face mask? Wine has some properties that are beneficial to your skin’s overall health and making a wine face mask is easy to do! When you make a wine face mask the most difficult thing will be parting with a few tablespoons of wine you’d probably much rather be drinking! Don’t worry, though; there will still be plenty of wine left for you to enjoy a few glasses. Since you’ll be covered in mud, we suggest you use an unbreakable wineglass for drinking purposes!

Red wine face masks have antioxidants that work wonders on your skin.

Benefits of a Wine Facial Mask

Wine is full of antioxidants which help your skin even while you’re drinking it. You’ll reap the benefits of these powerful antioxidants when applying a wine facial mask as well. Wine facial masks are said to:
Give an instant glow
Help remove blemishes
Rejuvenate your skin
Remove toxins from your skin
Tighten pores
Prevent premature ageing

White Wine Facial versus Red Wine Facial

Red and white wines have different properties and thus they work better for different types of skin.

Red Wine Facial: If you have oily skin then a red wine such as a Shiraz or a Cabernet Sauvignon is a good option for your face mask.

White Wine Facial: People with dry skin should opt for a white wine face mask. Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling will do wonders for your skin.

Honey is a key ingredient for most wine face mask recipes.

Before Applying a Wine Face Mask

Clean your skin thoroughly with mild face wash. Place a damp, warm cloth (clean, of course) on your face and leave it there until it becomes cool. Repeat this two or three times. Now it’s time to apply your wine face mask!

Here are two wine face mask recipes you can try:

For the ultimate enjoyment create a spa environment at home to accompany your wine mask.

Leave your wine facial on for approximately 10 minutes. If you decide to sip a glass of wine while your facial mask is still on, we recommend sipping through a straw so you don’t mess up the facial.

Splash warm water on your face and use circular hand movement to remove the facial. For the best results, give yourself a wine facial once per week.
