The ancients in Italy said “red wine makes good blood” and in fact many studies today confirm that a glass of wine a day improves health. However, that’s not enough, because the beneficial properties of this drink do not end there. In fact, grapes, musts and vine leaves are valuable allies for our beauty, thanks to the presence of polyphenols, which counteract skin aging and improve microcirculation.
Even grape seeds are precious, in fact, they derive grape seed oil that has antioxidant, emollient and regenerated properties.
Already in ancient times, the Romans and Arabs knew the beneficial properties of wine, using grapes as ingredients for cosmetic treatments. This knowledge was used also in the Renaissance.
Today the modern wine therapy is born in France, creating cosmetics and beauty treatments such as diving in the must, massage with grape seed oil and beauty masks.
Wine and relax combined together, create a new frontier of body and mind wellness.
In Italy you can find many spa centers where wine therapy is practiced, after regenerating the skin with a scrub and a red grape massage, indulge in a glass of Brunello di Montalcino or Chianti Classico because health and wellbeing are also passed through the spirit and “The nectar of the gods” is always a pleasure to enjoy.
