Treating the Skin to
WINE & CHOCOLATE By Kelly Rose Bellucci
hen it comes to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Arnold Breitbart is an expert in his field. Treating patients for over 25 years, he has been named one of the top plastic surgeons on Long Island, as well as the New York Metropolitan area by a variety of sources. His patients enjoy top-notch service and are offered a wide range of cosmetic procedures in order to achieve a natural look. In addition to surgery, many clients of Dr. Breitbart’s desire the proper skincare regiment to maintain a youthful glow. Finding a product on the market that is both gentle and effective can be difficult. As a winemaker and chocolatier, Dr. Breitbart knows about the many positive effects both dark chocolate and wine have on the body. They not only provide a number of health benefits, including a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer, but also possess an abundance of anti-aging properties as well. With that in mind, Dr. Breitbart created a product line that successfully enhances the look and feel of skin: CHOCOVIN. CHOCOVIN is an advanced line of skincare that harnesses the power of antioxidants found in chocolate and wine. The brand currently consists of its Revitalizing Day Cream, Regenerating Night Cream, and Replenishing Eye Cream, all of which incorporate two powerful ingredients known as resveratrol and epigallocatechin gallate. Resveratrol, found in red wine, protects the skin from free radical damage and aids in the production of collagen. Epigallocatechin gallate, found in dark chocolate, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, rosacea, and protects against sun damage and inflammation. Studies have shown that the combination of these antioxidants reaps more benefits than either one alone, leaving the skin looking fresh and radiant.

Which product of CHOCOVIN is currently sold the most? They all sell well, but the eye cream is somewhat sold the most.
When should an eye cream be applied?
Eye cream should be applied at least at night, or even in the morning and night.
Can CHOCOVIN be used on all skin types?
Yes, CHOCOVIN can be applied on all skin types. Many people with very sensitive skin have said that they tolerate CHOCOVIN especially well, much more so than other skin creams they have used in the past.

I plan to expand the CHOCOVIN line to at least add a toner, cleanser, and serum.
