I have a collection of brand new and rather gorgeous looking products from cult Japanese brand, DHC to share with you today. Ok, so you may have heard that red wine – in moderation – can actually be good for you? Well DHC has taken this on board, and after a serious amount of research, they’ve incorporated one key ingredient found in red wine into their new skincare range.
Resveratrol is a highly potent antioxidant that’s found in the skin of red grapes, and when applied topically it’s been found to improve tissue elasticity, support the skins’ natural moisture barrier and protect against environmental damage. Resveratrol is also a phytoalexin – one of 600 microbial compounds produced by plants to protect them from adverse conditions including UV rays. In DHC’s lab studies, it was also shown to promote the Sirtuin ‘longevity’ gene.
Utilising this powerful antioxidant, DHC has developed the Resveratrol three-step skincare system, which includes a high concentration of this wonder ingredient. Unlike other powerful anti-ageing ingredients such as retinol, resveratrol is non-irritating and suitable for even sensitive skin – so it’s perfect for me!
The Reservatrol collection includes a hydrating toner, super-booster and rich moisturiser, and DHC recommend you layer the three products for maximum results.
Resveratrol Lotion (£43.00) – This ultra hydrating toner luxuriously promotes smoother, more resilient skin with resveratrol, combined with soothing, moisturising cereal extracts to help boost skin’s natural moisture barrier and improve its defences against environmental damage. The lotion has a light, water-like texture which allows for rapid absorption into the skin to prepare it for the booster and moisturiser.
Resveratrol Essence (£43.00) – This moisture promoting Essence is actually a serum, described as ‘a deeply hydrating super booster which reduces the appearance of fine lines for a smoother skin.’ DHC advise that you pat the serum into cleansed and toned skin prior to moisturising for maximum effect.
Resveratrol Cream (£43.00) – The third step in the Reservatrol route, this intensive, age defying moisturiser has a thick, luxurious texture. As well as providing total hydration for a more ‘plumped’ looking skin, the cream boosts the skins natural moisture barrier.
The three products all have a lovely, light scent, and each feels luxurious to use and apply. I’ve only been using these for a few days but my dry skin is already loving the moisturiser especially!
The Resveratrol range is available now from dhcuk.co.uk.
