Grape Beauty

Among nature's richest food sources of antioxidants, grapes help protect the body from environmental stressors like pollution, smoke, and excess sun. So it makes sense that this protective fruit is popping up in beauty products everywhere -- your skin and hair are where resulting damage is most visible. Spas in Bordeaux, Napa, and Tuscany are using grape-derived elements in luxe treatments such as body wraps and wine-barrel baths. These grape- and wine-spiked goods rank among Body+Soul's favorites.
