Stress, Wine, & Skincare

When you allow stress to infiltrate your life you are quickly speeding up the aging process. In skincare, the name for this is Oxidative stress and is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body, which can lead to cell and tissue damage. Oxidative stress occurs naturally and needs intervention internally + externally with the use of antioxidants.

Now, let's break down antioxidants a little further. You hear that word a lot but you may be unsure of what it is doing for your skin.


When applied directly to the skin antioxidants have these 3 amazing benefits!

  1. Reduces visible signs of aging: Antioxidants encourage cell repair which allows for successful collagen production and helps protect skin from harmful pollution and UV rays.

  2. Heals acne: Due to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, antioxidants can help to reduce pore inflammation and reduce breakouts.

  3. Boost glowiness: By reducing free radicals, antioxidants can help improve your skin’s radiance and even out skin tone.

This is all great but what does this have to do with wine?

Science daily says, "A new study has revealed that the plant compound resveratrol, which is found in red wine, displays anti-stress effects by blocking the expression of an enzyme related to the control of stress in the brain."

So get your networking shoes on and head over to the Blackburn Inn for a Women's Networking event to de-stress and have a glass of wine with another local business owner.
