Antioxidants help to prevent and terminate the oxidization process, which constantly occurs as free radicals attack skin cells, damaging and aging the skin. Polyphenols and resveratrol are particularly potent antioxidants that are concentrated in the grape seed and red grape skins respectively. Medical research has linked polyphenols and resveratrol to cancer prevention and anti-aging treatments when ingested. Great- now you don’t have to feel guilty about that glass of red wine last night, but what about applying grape seed to the skin?
Your skin is an organ- it's actually the largest organ in your body. Your skin is absorbing what you apply to it like a big sponge. The only difference is that this sponge soaks into your blood stream. Ever think about how a nicotine patch works, or a numbing cream? You apply it externally, and feel the effects internally. The same goes for the lotions and potions you put on your skin. Using grape seed based skin care is feeding your skin antioxidants from the outside in.
