Does Your Skin Need Resveratrol?

Take a quick look at your complexion. Is your skin currently experiencing any of the following?

  • Sun damage

  • Breakouts

  • Redness

  • Uneven texture

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Dullness

  • Bumps

  • Dryness

  • Fine lines

  • Wrinkles

  • Sensitivity

If you said yes to any of the above, your complexion could benefit from resveratrol, an anti-aging ingredient for all skin types that acts like a super antioxidant to support your skin’s barrier function. It’s such a powerful antioxidant that it works even better than vitamin E and vitamin C when it comes to fighting off existing free radicals and preventing the formation of new free radicals.

Resveratrol belongs to a family of chemical compounds known as polyphenols, which protect plants from UVA/UVB rays and other environmental stressors. Naturally, resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes, berries, pomegranate, cocoa, and red wine. While we’re all for drinking a glass of Malbec in the name of prettier skin, we love resveratrol even more when it’s applied topically as part of a pampering skincare routine.

How to Use Resveratrol for Skin

Daily: Impress Me™ Probiotic Pressed Serum

Both a nourishing serum and a face moisturizer, Impress Me features a Poshbiotic blend of resveratrol, black tea kombucha, bifida ferment lysate, milk, and eggs to soothe and comfort sensitive, irritated skin while deeply hydrating with shea butter and burdock in a bouncy cream base that melts into a lightweight serum as you press it onto your face.

Apply a dime-sized amount to clean face and neck, day and night, after your toner. If desired, other serums can be used before Impress Me for additional pampering.
