We recently posted about the property in red wine that can help your skin look younger: resveratrol. In this article, Meighan Sembrano recommends some of the best wine-based beauty products on the market that use resveratrol as a key ingredient...
Every now-and-then, a particular substance becomes a “buzz word” around the entire world, especially in the health and beauty industry. Wine is a topic that has gained a lot of attention recently, primarily due to a specific ingredient found in it, known as resveratrol. Resveratrol is considered to be one of the top antioxidants in existence and has been linked to a significant number of health benefits, as well as beauty benefits. The benefits of resveratrol as an antioxidant can be achieved both through consuming foods and drinks that contain resveratrol, as well as by utilizing beauty creams, serums, tonics, toners and other products that contain resveratrol as an active ingredient. One study explains that resveratrol can protect the skin against oxidative stress, and to address damage dealt to the surface by ultraviolet exposure. These benefits contribute to improvements in age-related skin symptoms and can help to provide you with glowing, younger-looking skin. It’s not just all about the skin though; drinking a small glass of red wine every night may help to reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease as red wine in small doses can help thin the blood. It can also contribute to better cholesterol levels

Which face creams contain resveratrol?
Drinking red wine is the most popular way to include resveratrol in your daily routine, but the substance can be extracted and placed in specific skin care products too. However, just as too much red wine will soon start to give adverse effects, so can too much resveratrol. Opt for a product that is manufactured by a trusted brand in the skincare industry and ideally a product backed by positive customer reviews. Let’s look at the best resveratrol beauty products you can use to include the benefits of red wine in your daily beauty routine:
1) First on our list is Swanson’s Resveratrol Wrinkle Cream. As the name suggests, this cream is primarily based on resveratrol, the most potent antioxidant found in red wine.
