Either red or white wine will work for a wine bath because they both carry the same anti-aging properties. Some spas, including the Cadogan Hotel in London, even offer a champagne bath for the ultra-luxurious! Champagne has all the benefits of wine plus the tartaric acid, which exfoliates the skin and can reduce skin discoloration and fine lines. Doesn't this champagne bath featured on Prague Fashion Scene look heavenly?
This is a great way to use opened wine that has past its prime or champagne that has gone flat. Simply add a glass or more to bathwater and enjoy! And don't worry: a wine bath will not dye your skin or bath tub!
The Yunessun Spa Resort in Japan takes the wine bath to an extreme by filling a small pool with red wine, below.
So what do you think about the anti-aging wine bath? Will you try it out this weekend?
