Teri Hatcher's wine bath

(BANG) - Teri Hatcher's latest beauty regime involves pouring a glass a wine into her bath.

The 'Desperate Housewives' actress has stopped drinking the tipple, but is an advocate of its skin-softening properties.

A source told Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper: "Teri Hatcher is one of an increasing number who has started pouring a glass of wine into her bath every day.

"She would never drink it, but claims bathing in it keeps her skin soft."

According to a beauty expert at Caudalíe skincare - the world's leading vinotherapy skincare line - grapes have powerful anti-oxidant qualities.

The expert said: "In 1993, Joseph Vercauterem, of Bordeaux University, discovered vinotherapy. Research has revealed grape seeds' priceless benefits for the skin."

Teri, 41, has previously admitted to having Botox and collagen injections to keep her stunning looks.

The brunette star confessed she had the painful jabs - which smooth wrinkles and plump up lips - to combat the signs of ageing.

Another beauty secret Teri has let slip in the past, is she has been dying her grey hair since she was 25.
