What is 'wine face' and why are people talking about it?

No, it’s not that giddy glint you get in your eye when someone produces wine.

IF YOU’VE BEEN on Twitter today, you may have seen people talking about something called ‘wine face’.

But what is it and why are people talking about it?

A new book called Reverse The Signs Of Ageing: The Revolutionary Inside-Out Plan To Glowing, Youthful Skin by skincare specialist Nigma Talib (she’s worked with Sienna Miller and Charlotte Tillbury) claims that the food and drink you consume can have a direct impact on your appearance.

Talib has identified four different ‘faces’ — wine face, gluten face, dairy face, sugar face — and outlined the effects different foods can have on your visage.

The specialist claims that consuming dairy can lead to dark circles under the eyes, spots on your chin and swollen eyelids. Sugar can lead to wrinkles, sagging under the eyes and pasty skin, while gluten can cause puffiness, redness and spots.

But what about ‘wine face’? Is that when you have a giddy glint in your eye and a thirst for more wine?

Talib says that ‘wine face’ typically happens to those who consume one or two glasses of wine most nights of the week. As for what it allegedly does to your face?

  • Lines or redness between the eyes
  • Saggy eyelids
  • Enlarged pores
  • Facial redness
  • Deep laughter lines

To curb these symptoms, Talib recommends abstaining from wine (or any alcohol, for that matter) for 80% of the time and sticking to low-sugar wines the rest of the time.

So now.
