In what has got to be the best follow up of all time to my somewhat tongue in cheek posting last month about the purported benefits of red wine for just about everything, comes this report from Argentina:
Now, use red wine for tightening stomach and firming breasts!

Red wine is the latest rage in the beauty salons of Buenos Aires, where it is believed that it can tighten the stomach and firm sagging breasts.
According to Ananova, creams made with red wine or even a glass of pure wine, when applied directly to the person's skin are bringing in dramatic results, and beauty clinics all over Buenos Aires are reporting a huge demand for wine therapy by women.
"After cleansing, the skin receives a special wine mask that is rich in vitamin E. It brings firmness and nutrition to the skin, making it healthy and elastic," said wine therapy expert Diego Barberan.
"It is fantastic. It does what it promises. I can say with no fear that I am addicted," added Mary Andres, a regular wine therapy customer. (ANI)
