Grape seeds, wine mud and wine have a beneficial effect for the skin and body. These spa services are Starosel's special offers for our guests.

Grape seeds are commonly used in the cosmetic industry. Grape seed oil is an antioxidant for the skin. It also strengthens the connective tissue causing a lifting effect. Grape seeds contain large amounts of vitamins A, E and C.

It has been proven that the seeds of the red grape seeds contain biologically active substances that have 50 times more powerful antioxidant effect than vitamin E. There is also linoleic acid in the grape seeds, which helps slowing down and suppressing inflammatory processes.

They also work very well for skin problems, acne, for dry skin. They have an anti-age effect and hydrate the skin and slow down the aging process. In addition, grape seeds help for reducing the cholesterol, strengthen the inner layer of arteries and capillaries, prevent the formation of blood clots in blood vessels. They also normalize high blood pressure. Grape seeds have a strong anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory effect on the whole organism.

Wine and wine mud are youthful elexirs! They are naturally high in glucose, fructose, vitamins A, C, P, as well as B vitamins, vital minerals and amino acids. Due to its incredible beneficial qualities, the grape is called "plant milk". It contains a large amount of polyphenols - active ingredients that help bind free radicals, which we already know are the main culprits of aging in the body. Polyphenols have anti-ageing effect.

The wine ritual also has beneficial effect on cellulite due to its detoxifying effect. Baths and massage improve blood circulation and help to disperse the accumulated toxins. As a result, the processes in cells affected by cellulite are normalized, and the surface of the skin appears visibly tighter and toned. Wine also has a smoothing effect on stretch marks, especially if applied in the form of an exfoliant.

Because of the antioxidants that wine contains, it is a powerful way to fight against the scars, bumps which damage that the external environment and the sun cost to the skin.
