Ah, wine… Mankind’s drink of choice since the beginning of time. We love it so much that we’ve managed to prove how it benefits our health by preventing blood clots from forming in the heart. A huge part of that can be credited to the ingredient resveratrol, a plant compound that can be found in the skin of grapes. Resveratrol has been touted to reduce inflammation and help fight cell oxidation, which is why incorporating this potent ingredient in your skincare routine can also combat aging. Now, we’ll raise a glass to that!
Hang on, before you crack open a bottle of wine and splash your face with it, have a look at these wine-inspired beauty products below. If you’ve never passed up a glass of wine, why pass up on it for your face?
