What's the deal with grape seed extract?

Studies suggest that grape seeds are miraculous when used in the skincare routine. Super rich in resveratrol, the extract from this natural ingredient can make your skin look younger and healthier. Here's why.

Surviving these past gloomy months hasn't been easy. And the amount of stress we experienced is giving a hard time to our skin, which happens to look dull and prematurely aged. This is why today we want to turn the spotlight on the benefits of grape seeds. Science has no doubts about them: their richness in antioxidant and anti-aging active ingredients, above all the famous resveratrol, make them the skin super heroes we all need. Now more than ever.

Why are grape seeds so beneficial for our skin

Who doesn't wish to boost the radiance and luminosity of his/her skin? Grape seed extract is, of course, obtained from the raw and powerful grape seeds. These tiny seeds are packed with antioxidants, including phenolic acids, anthocyanins, flavonoids, and oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes. This basically means that grape seed extract can provide a strong protection against oxidative stress, tissue damage and inflammation (this last being the scourge of the Western nations).

Let's focus on resveratrol

Yes, grape seeds are rich in resveratrol, the favourite anti ageing ingredient of the Hollywood stars. It is not merely a trend: resveratrol does have a vast amount of beneficial properties for the skin. Resveratrol is able to interrupt negative environmental influences, as well as protect the skin from the attack of the sun rays, boosting the skin's natural barriers. If you'll give it a try and start using a grade seeds beauty product and/or supplement you will therefore notice how your skin looks and feels smoother, plumpier and healthier. Ah, and resveratrol also stimulates collagen production, resulting in less wrinkles.
