A toast to beauty

Palate and nose already know and appreciate it, but the nectar of the gods is also a panacea for the skin. Not surprisingly, taking care of yourself with grapes is a beauty treatment already present in the routines of ancient Arabs and Romans as well as those Renaissance ladies who loved to prepare a mixture based on must to be used as a modern mask with an immediate plumping effect. 

For the world of cosmetics, the vine is comparable to a casket containing all the ingredients to create an elixir of eternal youth. Vitamins, mainly A and C, and minerals with an exfoliating and moisturizing effect are contained in the berries; the antioxidant and regenerating power instead, comes from the leaves and seeds. A glass to be raised and savored every day to effectively counteract free radicals – responsible for those annoying signs of expression and deep wrinkles – to restore brightness and elasticity to the skin, promptly served by your trusted beautician – named polyphenols, viniferin and tannin. 

To recreate a perfect spa at home trying to contrast time and immerse yourself, at the same time, in an all-encompassing wine-based experience, it is not necessary to enter into a Mephistophelian pact like Dorian Gray, but to rely on a personalized beauty ritual.
