Reduce Puffiness: Scandinavian women banish puffiness with 15 to 20 splashes of ice-cold spring mineral water. Softer, More Youthful Skin: In France, they apply freshly cut and mashed grapes to make skin softer and more youthful, because grapes contain potent antioxidants and have moisturizing benefits.
