It seems like only days ago we were prepping for Christmas and dreaming of all the beach time we were about to put in over holiday break. January brought us back to the office (and reality), and now, approximately 3.7 minutes later, it's February. (If this is any indication of how fast 2016 will fly, it's going to be November next week...)
February might have come around in a flash but we're concentrating on the silver lining: it's the perfect time for a health kick. Enter: FebFast. Ditching the cocktails for a month is a great opportunity to recover from party season, and doing it for a good cause will make you feel even better. That said, it's not always easy. If your office is anything like ours, Friday afternoon drinks are most definitely a thing, and an invitation is hard to decline. For those missing out on the health-boosting properties of red wine for three more weeks, we'll let you in on a secret... we've found a way to bend the rules. How you ask? With wine-inspired beauty products.
We've waxed poetic about the skin-boosting properties of resveratrol before, but if you're unfamiliar, this is all you need to know: it's a proven anti-ager. A potent antioxidant, it's sourced from the skin of red grapes (and is abundant in red wine). Resveratrol has anti-inflammatory properties and has even been shown to inhibit the cellular processes associated with tumour development. Impressive, no? Will all the skin-dehydrating alcohol we won't be drinking and the super charged skincare we'll be using, we're hoping to meet March with a glow to rival Rosie's.
