Our wardrobes evolve as the seasons change, and so should our beauty routines. Just like the sweaters and coats rotate to the back of our closets when the summer starts creeping in, our skincare routines deserve to shed a few layers in the summertime.
Skincare Products for Summer
When it comes to summer-appropriate skincare, the rules are fairly simple. Here’s Vine Vera’s take on things:
Double up on the protection, but keep textures lightweight.
With temperatures rising and the summer sunshine demanding to be felt, the last thing you want is for your skincare to pile on heavy and feel grimy throughout the day. After all, warmer weather should equate to fewer steps, lighter formulations.
But how exactly can we care for our skin while streamlining our skincare products for summer?
It’s easier than it sounds. Like every regimen, a summer-ready skincare routine should start with a solid foundation—one rooted in carefully selected ingredients.
It’s even more important while being on a sunny vacation as you will probably spend even more time outdoors.
This is where Vine Vera’s star ingredient, resveratrol, comes in.
Known as the red grape antioxidant, resveratrol is derived from the skin and seed of red grapes. Resveratrol is a perfectly valid reason to increase your red wine intake. We’ll raise a glass to that, but that’s not where this resveratrol’s abilities end.
See, to enjoy resveratrol’s benefits, you’d need to drink copious amounts of wine — around 1,000 bottles in a day, to be exact. However, there is another way to reap the benefits of this supercharged plant compound:
The answer is working it into your skincare routine, especially when it comes to skincare products for summer.
Transition into the warmer seasons with a resveratrol-rich skincare routine. Start with these five skincare products for summer:
Resveratrol Vitamin C Cleanser
The beach, the melting ice cream cones, the scorching heat — for most of us, the summer rings synonymous with sweat-slick skin and fun in the sun.
At the end of a warm day, there’s nothing quite like washing your face to give your skincare products for summer a clean canvas to work their magic on.
Vine Vera’s Resveratrol Vitamin C Cleanser is the ideal candidate for the job. A refreshing gel-type formula, this cleanser lifts dirt and grime off the face without excessively stripping the skin of its moisture.
Besides resveratrol, this cleanser has another core ingredient: vitamin C. If you grew up taking vitamin C supplements, you’ll know just how crucial this ingredient is for keeping your health in check. In the realm of skincare, you could say vitamin C plays just as big a role. Not only does it minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, but it also brightens the appearance of dark spots and a dull skin tone.
To use, every morning and evening, apply a small amount of cleanser on to wet skin. Massage it into the skin in circular motions, then rinse off with warm water.
Resveratrol Cabernet High Potency Cellular Peel
Skincare products for summer should be light, potent but effective. For days when you want to double up on cleansing, consider reaching for Vine Vera’s Resveratrol Cabernet High Potency Cellular Peel.
Despite what the name may sound like, this product won’t have your skin flaking and peeling. Instead, it will slough off dead skin cells to reveal a healthier-looking complexion — perfect for makeup-free summer days.
Unlike physical exfoliators with chunky particles that can cause micro-scars, the Resveratrol Cabernet High Potency Cellular Peel gently does away with dead cells by breaking down stubborn, flaky skin.
Although this product isn’t harshly formulated, remember that with great power comes great responsibility—even in skincare. Like all exfoliators, Vine Vera’s Resveratrol Cabernet High Potency Cellular Peel should be used moderately. Once or twice a week, apply a quarter-sized amount to the face then rinse off with cool water.
Resveratrol Pinot Noir Longevity Serum
Unlike cleansers and wash-off exfoliators, serums and essences stay on your skin throughout the day and all night long. They’ll contain potent active ingredients, usually in higher concentrations, to deliver optimal results to the skin.
- Glycerin, to hydrate the skin
- Retinyl palmitate, otherwise known as vitamin A palmitate
- Lactic acid, which can work wonders to lessen the look of fine lines
Fair warning: it usually isn’t advisable for lactic acid and retinol to be combined in a routine — let alone in a single product. But there’s no need to fret: retinyl palmitate is the gentlest out of the four kinds of retinol.
By combining it with a cocktail of antioxidants and hydrators, retinyl palmitate is gentle enough not to cause dryness or irritation. But remember, it’s always a good idea to patch test products before adding them to your regimen!
Cabernet Rejuvenation Facial & Eye Mask
Picture this: kicking back on a summer evening, sticking your nose in a book, or devouring a new series, all while treating yourself to a relaxing face mask. Rather than a regular fixture in your round-up of skincare products for summer, think of the Cabernet Rejuvenation Facial & Eye Mask as a weekly pick-me-up for your skin.
These masks, packed individually and soaked in a powerful mix of skincare actives, pack a punch of hydration — all without leaving a sticky, heavy feeling on the skin.
One of these superstar ingredients is hyaluronic acid. Our skin naturally contains hyaluronic acid, as it helps our cells hold on to water and maintains the look of plumpness. But over time, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our body diminishes, much like collagen and elastin.
When you need reinforcements, take a moment to breathe some life into your skin. Vine Vera’s Cabernet Rejuvenation Facial & Eye Mask makes a perfect addition to your line-up of skincare products for summer, especially if your skin is feeling dehydrated or fatigued.
Cap off your summer weekends right with Vine Vera Resveratrol Cabernet Cabernet Rejuvenating Facial and Eye Mask. To use the facial mask, place the soft sheet on a clean face. Leave it on for 15 minutes before rinsing with cool water. When your eyes feel heavy from late nights or too much screen time, carefully apply the eye mask and rinse off after 10 minutes.
Resveratrol Cabernet Replenishing Moisture Cream SPF 30
Some may think that you can skip moisturizing on warmer days, but the heat and humidity make this step even more important. Here’s why:
- Summer oiliness is often a result of the skin overcompensating for the dehydration caused by heightened sun exposure and humidity.
- The warmer weather usually comes hand-in-hand with more sweating and loss of fluids. Through it all, occlusive moisturizers help the skin retain hydration.
- Flocking to air-conditioned spaces to cope with the heat can lead to skin dryness.
Needless to say, your selection of skincare products for summer should include a moisturizer — albeit one with a lightweight, non-greasy formulation.
With moisturizing ingredients and sunscreen actives, you can count on Vine Vera’s Resveratrol Cabernet Replenishing Moisture Cream SPF 30 only to keep your skin’s moisture in check while shielding it from UV damage, too.
This product contains a total of five sunscreen ingredients, effectively filtering both UVA and UVB rays. Octisalate sunscreen also lends water resistance to the moisture cream, helping the product last through sweaty summer days.
To use, generously apply the Vine Vera Resveratrol Cabernet Replenishing Moisture Cream SPF 30 onto clean skin. To allow the product to seep into the skin effectively, apply 15 minutes before sun exposure.
With exquisite ingredients, lightweight formulations, and multitasking resveratrol at the center of your routine, there’s no need to worry about products feeling too heavy throughout the day. Seamlessly transition into the warmer months with scientifically formulated, thoughtfully curated skincare products for summer.
