Champagne for glowing skin!
WHAT?!!
I know, I know! The first time I heard about this I was shocked also. Grapes have long been used to fight wrin­kles, both top­i­cally and inter­nally, due to the high antiox­i­dant lev­els.  Women in Italy have been using a simple wine and milk mask to have smooth, ageless skin. Cham­pagne is often used for clar­i­fy­ing the skin while pro­vid­ing a healthy dose of anti-aging and light­en­ing prop­er­ties. These light­en­ing prop­er­ties come from tar­taric acid, found in wine and champagne, and is also great for clearing up blemishes because of it anti-bacterial properties.  Another benefit is the bubbly action in the champagne bring mirco-circulation to the skin which make your skin glow!
Ready to try this?
It’s best to have a freshly washed, clean face. You also want to be wary of the alcohol content if you have sensitive skin, it may dry you out a little bit so I would suggest testing an area before applying to your whole face. 
Now, pour about 2 Tbsp. of a good quality champagne into a shallow dish and drop a cotton ball in and let it soak it up.  Now you want to rub it all over your face and neck, you dont necessarily need to avoid your eye area, just dont get it in your eye!  There is no need to rinse, just apply a light moisturizer and VOILA! Your skin will be soft and dewy!
Hope you enjoyed todays wisdom!
