Although a bunch of juicy grapes may be your go-to snack to eliminate those afternoon cravings, grape seeds just may be a breakthrough beauty ingredient. In fact, the extract and oil which is derived from the seeds of grapes can offer a number of health and skincare benefits.

Livestrong.com reports that the creation of grapeseed oil involves pressing the grape seeds together. Once this oil is produced, it is a solid source of the Omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid.

Grapeseed oil is also low in saturated fats, which makes it a heart-healthy alternative to traditional cooking oils. For health fanatics who are aiming to keep their levels of LDL (or negative) cholesterol under control, it may be worthwhile to introduce this oil into your regular diet.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, grape seeds also contain Vitamin E, along with powerful antioxidants known as flavonoids and OPCs and the compound resveratrol. Grape seed is said to promote a nourished and youthful complexion, by maintaining the levels of collagen and elastin in the skin. If you’re hoping to bring a new breakthrough ingredient into your preventative anti-aging routine, grapeseed oil just may be your skin solution.
