If you’ve long been searching for that mysterious fountain of youth, turns out it could just be sitting in your wine rack, your fridge or pantry if you don’t like your choc in the fridge!).

A study carried out by the Universities of Exeter and Brighton showed that red wine and chocolate contain a substance called resveratrol.

The research found that old human cells can be rejuvenated using chemicals similar to resveratrol, so by consuming foods containing this natural chemical compound you could be helping to replenish your skin.

Researcher of the study published in BMC Cell Biology, Eva Latorre, wrote;

"When I saw some of the cells in the culture dish rejuvenating I couldn’t believe it. These old cells were looking like young cells. It was like magic.

"I repeated the experiments several times and in each case, the cells rejuvenated. I am very excited by the implications and potential for this research."

Sounds good enough to us! But please, of course, remember - everything in moderation.
