Why You Need To Add Resveratrol To Your Skincare Vocabulary

If you’ve ever fantasized about wine and chocolate being the secret to aging gracefully you need fantasize no more. There happens to be a little skincare marvel known as resveratrol, a special type of antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes and cocoa that works as a defense against free radicals. When applied topically, it helps promote the skin’s production of natural hyaluronic acid, leaving your complexion more hydrated and plump (translation: younger-looking skin and a dewy, youthful glow). Here, we’ve gathered our favorite ways to incorporate this gem into your routine for days when popping bottles and eating all the chocolate isn’t feasible.
