Vino Therapy  -  treatments with grapeseed oil and other extracts of grapes

As the name vino therapy suggests, this treatment includes grapes. Thus, it is not made use of wine but rather of grape seeds and grape oil. Consequently, only juice of unfermented grapes are part of the vino therapy. The extract of the grapes is then blended with warm spring water. The ingredients of the grapes enhance skin appearance resulting in a glowing and firm skin. One can make use of grapes in various ways: The shell for example consists of polyphenols, which protect the skin from pollutions like UV light and nicotine. By using grape shells, a premature ageing of the skin is furthermore prevented. There are various forms of vino therapies: Guests can for example enjoy massages and body wraps with grape seed oil, as well as peelings made of grape pulp.
