You’ve likely heard about the health benefits of drinking red wine( in moderation , that is not the way I drink it ), but have you ever thought about soaking in it?
At Yunessun Spa Resort in Japan, where those geniuses have basically thought of everything, they know bathing in water is old news. Why would you slip into a regular old boring bubble bath when you could soak in a hot tub full of your favorite boozy liquor?
And an even better topic would be, why stop with simply wine ?
According to the Yunessun Spa Resort site, swimming in a nice pool of red wine was a favorite skin therapy of Cleopatra.
I’m not sure exactly what the therapy is supposed to do, but who am I to argue with beauty tips-off from the inventor of the smoky eye?
Drinking immediately from the pool isn’t recommended, they caution, though if they could see how scrunched up my face is right now at the thought of drinking somebody else’s grape-flavored body soup, they’d know that warning isn’t really necessary.
Luckily, if you’re thirsty for vino they’ll simply pour you a glass.
No word on what vintage they’re serve, but any wine that hasn’t had a stranger’s body immersing in it is pretty much my favorite kind.
You can even take the party( ahem, I entail relaxation ) outside!
At scheduled intervals the warm water pouring from that twelve-foot bottle is swapped out for the good stuff, which is exactly when you’d be able to find me underneath it refilling my glass.
But don’t be brought to an end! If wine isn’t your style( or if you’d like to settle into something with a higher alcohol content ), the spa also offers a sake soak.
Sake is reported to remove freckles and age places, and with an alcohol content of about twenty percentage it has the potential to remove your inhibitions and dignity as well.
That means that you should probably only devour it in small quantities, yet another good reason not to guzzle immediately from the pool. The English translation of the description on their website says,” Although you can not drink because it is not a drinking fountain, the impression when I soaked the other tipsy mood ?” which pretty much demonstrates my point right there.
Need to sober up? Try the coffee bath!
