Vinotherapy: The Use of Wine Grapes to Treat the Skin

Posted on August 31st, 2009 by liapatrice in Body Care, Eco-Friendly

Happy Monday my loves!  So normally I would talk about today’s post on BCB Eco-Fridays, but I’m just too excited about it that I have to share it with you NOW!  Caudalie is an organic product line known for their use of vinotherapy.  Scientific studies have shown that grape mixtures can help to soothe the skin and slow down the aging process.  In vinotherapy, the skins, seeds, and stems of grapes are used to treat the skin due to their high concentration of antioxidants like polyphenols and resveratol.  Well Caudalie has now come out with the only 100% natural anti-cellulite treatment!

Now how many of you wish you could smooth out those infamous dimples in your skin?  And no I don’t mean the cute dimples that appear in your cheeks when you smile.  I’m talking about those dimples in your butt and thighs!  Yup, cellulite has plagued many of us women for quite some time. And it seems like there have been thousands of products out there that claim to get rid of cellulite.  Well let me break it down to you a little bit here on some important facts about cellulite:

  • Cellulite is gel-like lumps of fat, water, and residues of toxic substances beneath the skin, usually around the hips and thighs.
  • Cellulite is caused primarily by female hormones and genetics, meaning men don’t get it!  Lucky!
  • Cellulite becomes visible when damage to the dermis occurs causing the fat cells to become closer to the surface of the skin.  This damage happens when water is lost and the collagen and elastin tissues become weakened.  Another reason to stay hydrated!
  • Unfortunately, reducing the appearance of cellulite is a continual process and cannot be completely diminished.  But fortunately, there are ways to refine our figures and smooth out that dimpled skin even if it does take a little work.

Caudalie Contouring ConcentrateCaudalie Contouring Concentrate is an ultra-concentrated care product that really does produce visible results.  It comes with a 30 day marked gradation on the side of the bottle that lets you know exactly how much you need to apply each day.  I’ve just completed my first 7 days and have to tell you that I am so pleased with the results.  Not only has the product started to smooth out my dimples, my skin feels firmer and totally hydrated all day long.  Made completely with active ingredients coming from plant extracts, the solution itself also helps to drain excess water weight and leaves a refreshing lemon scent that is 100% natural.  Its something that has made an easy transition into my daily regimen and makes me feel better in my own skin.  How much more could I ask for?  I’m so happy to have finally found an anti-cellulite treatment that has given me visible results so soon and am really excited to see what continued use of this product can do!  I’ll definitely be keeping you all posted! ;)

Until next time my loves…  xoxo
