Red wine can wreak havoc on your smile!If you're a wine drinker, you're probably familiar with the way red wine tends to stain your mouth. The tannins that come from the grape skins are the culprit. Luckily, there are a few ways you can fix the red teeth, lips and tongue problem.

If you're out to dinner, Cosmopolitan magazine suggests asking the waiter for a slice of lemon. Take that and a bit of table salt into the bathroom, then rub the lemon and salt over your teeth. The acids and salt will scrub the stains right off, and the lemon will even freshen your breath!

You could also use a product like GoSMILE – TOUCH UP Mini (pear-licious) to freshen up your teeth and whiten at the same time. The best part is that these will fit right into your purse, so you can touch up your smile anywhere.

To remove stains from your lips, rub them with a damp washcloth to exfoliate. Then, use a lipstick like Paula Dorf – Lip Color to hide the evidence. No one will be able to tell that you've been indulging in vino.
