Cheers: Toning Up With Champagne!

Planning to break out the bubbly this weekend? Why not use the leftovers to make your skin glow? Champagne, after all, is extremely high in antioxidants due to the grape seed extract, which packs more vitamin C and E than your average toning and anti-aging products. The result? Superb protection for the skin’s vital collagen and elastin from free radicals and oxidative stress. Or, in normal English, a halt to premature ageing and goodbye to wrinkles.

Plus, champagne’s tar­taric acid content is a known skin lightener. So, if you have unwanted pig­men­ta­tion or want to even out your skin tone, champagne is a won­der­ful solu­tion. And that’s not all: tar­taric acid also helps clear up blemishes (it has anti-bacterial proper­ties) and detoxifies the complexion.


And the lovely bubbling action of champagne helps constrict the pores while stepping up micro-circulation, thereby making skin firmer and giving you a pretty, dewy glow. All these qualities make champagne one of the best toners for normal or oily skin (while it contains less alcohol than most store-bought toners, it’s still probably not hydrating enough for very dry skin). And women across France have been using it for zillions of years.

Ready to try it? Just soak a cotton pad in chilled champagne (or sparkling wine) and wipe thoroughly across a cleansed face, neck and décolleté. It should feel incredibly light, cool and refreshing, and you can actually feel the bubbles fizzing! Don’t rinse off; follow with your regular moisturizer  And enjoy your new glow!

Let me know how it works out for you!
