Now, being a mother of two boys, ages 5 and 4 [18 months apart], I need to have 1 glass of wine as soon as I am done saying my good nights in order to have a chance of maintaining my sanity. Bless their little hearts, but they are lunatics, and fortunately they make wine glasses like the picture shown so that I can still say I’m a good girl and only have one glass a day 😉
I’m sure you’ve read or heard that 1 glass of red wine a day is good for your heart’s health and even helping with cancer prevention. And we know that water is essential for hydrating your skin. So please, for the love of God, tell me that a glass of wine a night is equally as good for your skin!
As the saying goes, I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Water serves as an internal moisturizer which helps smooth out wrinkles making your skin appear younger and brighter. Whereas, alcohol, coffee, and soda have the exact opposite effect.
After a night out on the town, the next morning you may find yourself pounding a bunch of water. Why? Because alcohol, unlike water, dehydrates you. And dehydration of the skin will deplete important skin nutrients. So instead of getting younger, brighter skin you end up with dull looking skin.
Does this information concern me? Heck no! The remedy is a simple one: drink a large glass a day in preparation of the insanity that lurks the next day [fighting of cars, insanely loud imitations of dinosaurs, and everything else that comes along with “boys will be boys”], and I’ll deal with depleted skin nutrients and dull skin with my Neocutis Bio Cream and Lumiere Eye Cream.
To that: chin-chin, cheers, salut, and to all a good night. Love you boys!
