My Wine Beauty Secret
Glad I got your attention! This winter, I made a concerted effort to use more natural skincare products. Sure, this might sound lame, but in my quest to make healthier decisions, I started to think more about not only the food I was putting into my body, but the stuff I was slathering all over the outside of my body as well.
Behold, grapeseed oil! In my hunt for such a product, I came across a bottle of this at Target. Clearly my eyes were drawn to the word grape, and I was even more intrigued as I read the back of the bottle...a by-product of wine-making, works for combination and oily skin. Victorious in my search, I threw the bottle in my cart and never looked back. Since then, I've been using this daily on my whole bod after I get out of the shower. I even put it on my face! (Since grapeseed oil is non-comedogenic, it won't cause breakouts.) It sinks in fast and leaves me looking moisturized but not shiny. Plus I feel good knowing that this product is both wine-related AND doesn't contain any weird ingredients I can't pronounce.
Obviously, I'm a professional wine drinker and not a dermatologist, so you may want to proceed with caution if you have sensitive skin. And while I haven't made the switch to deodorant crystals or essential oils just yet, if you're looking to simplify your morning beauty routine, you may want to give grapeseed oil a try!
