Where do Jennifer Garner, Tyra Banks, Kate Beckinsdale, and Isla Fisher go when they want a drink thrown in their faces?
To Nerida Joy, of course.
Named one of the nations “Top 15 Facialists,” Joy has become known for her Estancia Vinotherapy (yup, wine-based!) facials at Los Angeles’ Hotel Bel-Air.
For all you not in the LA area (or unable to snag an appointment with this celebrity facialist), spa director Helen Storer shared with The Beauty Bean one of her exclusive wine-based facials so you can DIY it at home.
Inspired by the pure anti-aging properties of wine, this facial relies on the antioxidants in Estancia Pinot Noir to help restore collagen for healthier, happier skin.
DIY Estancia Vino Tea Anti-Aging Facial Mask
1 tablespoon Estancia Monterey County Pinot Noir wine
1 tablespoon green tea
1 tablespoon plain unflavored yogurt with active cultures
2 tablespoons of organic raw honey
Warm the honey until runny and warm, but not too hot. (You can warm the honey by placing it in a glass cup and then immersing it in a bowl of hot water or by placing it in the microwave for a few seconds.)
Mix the tea with the wine, yogurt, and honey until smooth.
Spread the paste evenly on to a clean face and neck, avoiding the eye area.
Relax and let the mask penetrate for 10-15 minutes. (Place cold cucumbers over your eyes for added benefits!)
Rinse off with warm water before splashing skin with cold water. Pat dry before applying moisturizer (like La Praire Skin Caviar Luxe Cream) to seal in the benefits.
