Cheers: Toning Up With Champagne!
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!
