Resveratrol: 5 Reasons Why It’s a ‘Must-Have’ in Your Anti-Aging Cream
Updated: Jun 24
Get acquainted with the anti-aging antioxidant that will change your skin forever
The name Resveratrol may conjure up images of something fancy, but it really isn’t all that tough to understand. Found in the skin of most berries like grapes and mulberries, it’s been widely mentioned in articles about the benefits of red wine thanks to its numerous benefits for your heart. Talk about drinking to good health!
But what exactly is Resveratrol, and what does it do for your skin? More specifically, your anti-aging cream? Heaps. If eliminating wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines are your kind of thing, let’s get into it:
1. Soothes your skin with anti-inflammatory properties
Resveratrol is an extremely strong antioxidant that works to not just protect your body against things like heart diseases, but also provides a full suite of benefits like skin lifting and prevention against wrinkles. Another thing we’re celebrating about this miracle antioxidant? Its ability to control inflammation. More specifically, the processes that lead to inflammation of the skin. Think minimized redness and peeling—a huge plus for those with rosacea or sensitive skin. You’ll be able to enjoy an all-round healthy, clear and youthful complexion always.
2. Improves your skin elasticity for a taut and supple complexion
Collagen is one of the most popular buzzwords when it comes to retaining a youthful look. In fact, women ingest everything from pre-packed collagen beverages to collagen-infused broths—all of which promise lifting and firming properties for your skin. But as you age, estrogen levels produce less collagen, which result in wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines appearing on your face.
Here’s where Resveratrol steps in. As an incredibly potent antioxidant, Resveratrol serves the same functions as estrogen to help maintain collagen levels, plump up delicate fine lines, reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity.
3. Protect your skin from environmental pollutants...
The environment is truly one of the harshest things on your skin, and free radical damage (one of the main culprits in rapid skin aging) circulating in the air thanks to smoke and other pollutants certainly don’t help. Humans ourselves do produce a small number of free radicals internally during cell turnover, but the bulk of them are due to external factors.
Thankfully, Resveratrol helps to neutralize free radical damage and protect your skin— maximizing anti-aging effects.
4 ...And the sun!
We love a good, sun-kissed tan as much as the next person, but there’s no denying that constant exposure to sun rays is a surefire way to wrinkles and sagging skin. Much like using sunscreen, you can use skincare with Resveratrol for an easy and effective way to protect your skin from UVA and UVB damage. With religious application, you’ll build up a strong protection against the detrimental effects of the sun.
5. Renews and maintains healthy skin cells
Everyone knows that a youthful complexion is attributed to a high, healthy cell turnover. Old skin cells are usually replaced by new ones in approximately a month—but this process gets slower as we age. That’s when we start to see dull and sagging skin and fine lines appear. While there’s no magical elixir you can take to stop yourself from growing old, Resveratrol encourages your body to continually produce and maintain healthy tissue, in turn extending the lifespan of cells. This encourages anti-aging, firming and lifting properties for your skin, all for a younger outlook.
Now that you’re familiar with the power-packed antioxidant that is Resveratrol, it’s time to get introduced to The Moisturizers Co’s very own Cell Regenerate Gel Cream. When developing this anti-aging cream, The Moisturizers Co. knew Resveratrol was a key component they really wanted to have in their ingredient list.
And they did it—their ingredient list includes black mulberry extracts, one of the berries that contains a high level of Resveratrol, to calm and soothe irritated skin, as well as prevent the synthesis of melanin so you get clear and bright skin. Plus, this serum-infused moisturizer is enriched with Squalane and CoEnzyme Q10—a careful blend of amazing ingredients combined with advanced technology to keep your skin hydrated without the heaviness, and prevent the loss of collagen and elastin.
Clear, smooth and youthful skin is now yours to own.
