A glass of wine a day may help keep your heart healthy but did you know that products infused with and inspired by vino can actually keep your skin looking and feeling younger? We’re no stranger to vinotherapy spa treatments but lately we’re loving vinotherapy products that we can use at home to get all the anti-aging and free radical-fighting benefits everyday. Here’s just a few of our favorite wine-inspired products.
Using Resveratrol, the antioxidant found in red wine and grapes, Vine Vera created a line of anti-aging products that you are bound to fall in love with. Since it’s a naturally occurring antibiotic, Resveratrol works to cleanse the body of impurities and as a result it helps to maintain skin’s health and elasticity. The line has ten collections and most are named after varietals of wine: Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet, etc. But my favorite is the Merlot Collection and most specifically the Resveratrol Merlot Moisture Day Cream. My skin tends to be a bit dry but after using this rich day cream for a month my skin looked and felt super hydrated. I feel like its a necessary step to any makeup routine as it really leaves a long-lasting moisture without making your skin look oily. $146; vinevera.com (currently out of stock)
Merlot Natural Grape Seed Skin Care
After discovering the Merlot product line at a beauty expo I quickly fell hard and for a good reason. It was the bitter cold months of winter and after walking too many times in NYC without covering my face I was left with a not-so-attractive wind-burnt nose. After receiving and using my sample of Merlot’s Grape Seed Moisturizer I woke up the next morning with a much smoother, less Rudolph-like nose. Made with natural red grape seed polyphenols, this ultra-lightweight cream absorbs quickly into skin, and has an SPF! $17.00; merlotskincare.com
Easily one of my very favorites for lips is Bite Beauty’s Luminous Crème Lipstick. The colors are gorgeous and the finish is really moisturizing. Why? Because the lip color delivers super antioxidant Resveratrol – in fact, each lipstick contains the amount of Resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine. Your lips will thank you! $24; sephora.com
It’s no secret editors at SpaFinder Wellness LOVE Caudalie and the brand’s Crushed Cabernet Scrub is no exception. The Vinotherapie Spa’s signature scrub actually inspired the entire Caudalie Body Collection and is packed with grape seed goodness. It delivers a great exfoliation while it nourishes the skin to give it hydration and a smooth feel. Plus as an added benefit the scrub provides anti-cellulite and draining properties. $38; us.caudalie.com
