“It’s the trifecta,” says Dr. William McGillivray of Project Skin MD in Vancouver, explaining the components of SkinCeuticals’ latest skincare innovation. “You know, like beer, boating, and golf,” he laughs. Visions of a yacht sailing off the coast of California, fresh off a round at Pebble Beach—now that’s a skincare promise. Indeed, the three active ingredients found in the SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E are better together.
As far as nighttime routines go, this one’s a mouthful: Antioxidant Night Concentrate with one per cent pure resveratrol, 0.5 per cent baicalin (that’s a flavanoid), and one per cent alpha tocopherol (a form of vitamin E). Resveratrol, otherwise known as the “longevity molecule”, has the starring role in the threesome as the key to improving skin’s defense system and natural ability to repair damage from oxidative stress. The formulation that results is made for the skin’s overnight recovery mode. Resveratrol B E aims to neutralize free radicals and targets the visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and lackluster tone. SkinCeuticals also reports that the elixir restores the density of the skin by 18.9 per cent. Take that, elasticity.
With a few patents pending, it’s worth doubling down on Resveratrol B E. The weightless formula melts into the skin with a matte finish and after just two weeks, skin looks noticeably smoother and brighter. Clarity is an elusive ideal in skin care, but skin tone improves and imperfections begin to fade in just a few days. Skincare breakthroughs aside, SkinCeuticals is bottling the rule of three for beauty sleep.
