In case you didn't know:

Here are some fun facts about red wine, which personally make us even more excited about drinking it lol.


  • For naturally beautiful skin: Red wine contains polyphenols that help transform a dull complexion and give you the glow you've always wanted. Spray red wine on your face and massage gently for 10 minutes. Leave it on for another 10 minutes and then wash off.

  • If you’re a red wine drinker, it’s time to reap the benefits. This habit of yours could actually promote longer life. In fact, red wine drinkers have a 34% lower mortality rate than vodka or beer drinks.

  • If that wasn’t enough, red wine also helps you sleep peacefully since it contains melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep and wake cycles.
