It’s no secret that red wine has cardiovascular benefits thanks to the antioxidant resveratrol. What you may not know is this same heart-healthy ingredient keeps your skin healthy, too. Resveratrol is a powerful anti-aging antioxidant found in red grapes that looks just as good on your skin as it does in your wine glass.
Skin is constantly at risk of damage caused by free radicals, unstable molecules produced by UV rays, pollution and lifestyle factors such as alcohol or cigarette smoke. They accelerate signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. Resveratrol neutralizes these free radicals to protect your skin from damage. This effective ingredient strengthens and supports the skin’s defense and repair systems while improving tone, texture and firmness.
Add resveratrol to your daily routine with LovelySkin LUXE Mattifying Antioxidant Moisturizer. Its hydrating formula contains resveratrol to defend against free radicals while peptides help repair cellular damage. This oil-free moisturizer minimizes shine to leave skin with a matte finish. Apply it daily to significantly improve the tone and texture of your complexion.
