What is Resveratrol?

Resveratrol is a naturally occurring chemical that many plants produce to help fight off bacteria, fungi and microbial attacks. Common resveratrol sources include red grapes, blueberries, pistachios, and red wine (yes, really!). 

Resveratrol has become a potent, shelf-stable substitute for superfood skincare ingredients like blueberries, raspberries and goji berries.

How Does Resveratrol for Skin Work?

Put simply, resveratrol skincare can help to reduce the appearance of inflammation and irritation. Its antioxidant properties also help to fight free radical skin damage, including uneven skin tone and other signs of ageing.

What Are The Benefits of Using Resveratrol for Skin

Applying resveratrol topically to your skin can reap many benefits, including: 

  • Reducing puffiness  
  • Smoothing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines  
  • Supporting collagen and elastin production 
  • Improving the appearance of skin tone and texture  
  • Helping to stabilise free radicals  

Better yet, when regularly applied, resveratrol can form a skin protectant barrier that helps to rebuff environmental aggressors. From helping to fight pollutants to calming irritation caused by dry or cold air, the benefits of using resveratrol for skin are more than just skin deep.
