We all know how good getting a makeover can feel, but those high-end, glamour applications only last until you wash them off. Give yourself a treat every night by using skin care products that leave your skin feeling nourished, supple and ready for all those great makeover looks. Playing with makeup is always fun, but don’t forget, true beauty comes from within.

Buzzword: Resveratrol

/rɪˈsvɛrəˌtrɒl/

Despite a lack of substantial research conducted on human subjects, the term Resveratrol has been popping up in the beauty press in pubs such as New Beauty and TV shows like The Real Housewives of Orange County. Why? Resveratrol, a polyphenol found in many plants and consumed in the normal diet through grapes (and red wine!), berries, and nuts, has shown some promise for its anti-aging properties at least in studies conducted with mice. The other benefit may make you heart happy: In a year-long clinical study conducted in 2012, participants consumed resveratrol (via grapes) and the compound’s anti-inflammatory effects were found to help prevent cardiovascular disease.

Try it for yourself?
