Beauty Benefits from Vinotherapy

benefits from vinotherapy

Vinotherapy is the latest craze to hit the world of beauty and cosmetics. With the use of grapes and its by-products such as its seeds as the main ingredient, vinotherapy is a great way to pamper the skin and reap other benefits such as slowed ageing process.

Grapes were historically grown for wine consumption which is highly regarded as having health benefits. But through years of scientific research it was found out that grapes contain a type of flavonoid known as polyphenols, natural antioxdidants that help the body in fighting free radicals, the main culprit in a lot of health problems including cancer. High concentration of polyphenols can be found in grape skin and seeds which are the by products usually thrown away by wine processors. These by products were then found to be useful through vinotherapy.

Vineyard owners were the first to offer this kind of therapy from grape by products since the basic raw material they need is of course readily available. The first wine spa which opened in Bordeaux, France for example offers massage sessions that applies the process of wine making in the body. This is a toning massage treatment that uses alternating techniques and pressure following the lines connecting energy points. They also offered bathing in personalized concoction of enriched red vine extracts. Now a lot of vineyards include vinotherapy in their line of business, aside from making wines, they also offer a range of treatments using grape seed extracts.

Those who enjoy going to spas will also be glad to hear that more and more spas are now including luxurious vinotherapy beauty products and services aimed at fully optimizing the healing powers of polyphenols. A day at a wine spa with beauty rituals such as scrubs, massages and saunas all designed to make you relax and just enjoy yourself coupled with the health benefits derived from the best nature has to offer will certainly a time well spent.

For those who do not have the time to go to the spa for some me time of relaxing and pampering you can still reap the benefits offered by vinotherapy by using beauty products that use grape seed extract as their main ingredient. In fact a lot of Hollywood stars, Eva Longoria, Kirsten Dunst and even Madoanna to name a few are into this therapy and are known to buy in bulk for their own personal consumption.

Although the benefits of vinotherapy has just been recently known, the effects of grapes and wine to the body has been the stuff of beauty legends dating back to the time of Cleopatra, who is well known for the beauty she possess. Now that it has scientific research and studies to back it up it is therefore without doubt that vinotherapy despite being touted as just a passing fancy is here to stay.
