Red Wine…An alcoholic beverage we’re encouraged to consume for the sake of our health and beauty. Red wine has long been championed for its anti-ageing properties, because, like the red grapes it’s made from, it is full of antioxidants and flavanoids. Red wine is also thought to promote a healthy heart and to have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body, thanks to a natural compound called resveratrol it contains. Here are some easy DIY red wine face mask recipes in honor of National Drink Wine Day!
