Hello Vino...Bye Bye Sunburn...

I know the summer months are long gone and the chances of getting sunburn are pretty slim unless you live on a tropical island or you plan on snowbirding for the winter months and visiting a tropical island soon. Regardless of the season, the tip I'm about to share is unbelievable, pleasurable if you enjoy a glass of fine wine, and down right crazy if you ask me; but they say it works!

In Barcelona, recent in vitro studies suggest special antioxidants in wine grapes protect the skin from UV induced burns. Indulging in a glass of vino from time to time is NOT a replacement for good ol sunscreen, but it may definitely be able to assist in the creation of better sunscreens. If using wine to create better sunscreens doesn't work, you could always just down a glass or two for the fun of it and you won't even feel your sunburn! *Just kidding, lovies...we do not endorse binge drinking at Pearlie's Fashion Passion!*

Drink up, enjoy and see ya at the TOP, lovies!
