SACRED BOTANICALS: POMEGRANATE

 Our award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum contains over 20 clean, hardworking botanicals. Each of them brings their own list of benefits to the table, and Pomegranate is no exception. In fact, the list of potential benefits that pomegranate holds for skin is so long, it definitely earns its super-ingredient title. 

 

As one of the world’s most ancient fruits, pomegranates have a rich history across many ancient civilizations. In early Jewish culture, the fruit was considered a symbol of sanctity and abundance. In China, it was a symbol of fertility, with Buddha often depicted holding a pomegranate to represent an abundance of sons. In ancient Greek culture, it became a symbol of rejuvenation and eternal life due to its association with Persephone, the goddess of spring. Given what we know now about the detoxifying and anti-aging properties of pomegranates, it is not surprising that the fruit was revered by so many ancient peoples.

 

 

Pomegranate is often lauded for its antioxidant properties, and for good reason. It contains approximately 48% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C, a skincare hero-ingredient by any standards, as well as other antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and tannins. The high dose of antioxidants helps fight free radical damage and even protect against future damage. It also empowers cell regeneration and healing, which makes it an effective treatment for sunspots and hyperpigmentation.

 

If you’re like us, anti-aging benefits are one of the first properties we look for in our skincare ingredients. Pomegranate does not disappoint in this area. Studies have shown that pomegranate seed oil may help improve cell turnover and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also known to promote smooth, firm skin by empowering collagen and elastin production – two key ingredients for a more youthful complexion. It also not only stimulates new collagen production, but helps protect the collagen you already have, leading to even more anti-aging power.

 

Finally, pomegranate is rich in fatty acids and deeply hydrating due to its ability to penetrate to the deepest layers of skin. It is particularly effective in the winter months, as it helps prevent moisture loss to fight dry, irritated skin. However, those who suffer from acne-prone skin need not worry, pomegranate will not clog pores and even contains anti-microbial properties to help prevent future breakouts. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, which helps calm existing breakouts and soothes red, irritated skin. By reducing inflammation, circulation is improved which supercharges skin’s ability to heal and regenerate itself.

OUR SECRET TO LAYERING ✨

 

Have you ever typed into Google the words, “Can I use *insert skincare ingredient here* at the same time as *insert skincare ingredient here*.

Yep, we thought so. We’ve all done it - pondered the mysteries of layering skincare ingredients until our heads spin. Layering can be a tricky concept that boggles the minds of even the most seasoned skincare aficionados. 

 

SAINT JANE is here to take the guesswork out of layering our products. All of our products are packed with potent ingredients designed to complement one another and enhance their effects. Though each of our products contains enough clean actives and rich botanicals to be a full routine on its own, we’re sharing our complete suggested layering guide below.

 

Step 1 - The C-Drops

 

As a general layering rule of thumb, you should start with the thinnest in product texture and work your way up to the heaviest. For SAINT JANE, that means The C-Drops is the first layer of your routine. Packed with a 20% glycerin-encapsulated Vitamin C blend, this powerful serum is formulated to penetrate the deepest layers of skin for maximum effectiveness. Starting with The C-Drops enables you to up your skin’s glow factor for a radiant complexion. Though Vitamin C is a potent ingredient that can sometimes cause irritation and redness as an unfortunate side effect, our formulation includes skin-soothing botanicals, for a gentle yet effective first step.

 

Step 2 - Hydrating Petal Cream

 

As the newest product in the SAINT JANE skincare arsenal, Hydrating Petal Cream has already taken its place among our can’t-live-without products. With the ultra-hydrating power of 1% pure Hyaluronic Acid combined with the smoothing capabilities of Hibiscus Peptides, Hydrating Petal Cream delivers silky smooth, hydrated skin that lasts all day. Its featherweight texture absorbs quickly and is specifically designed to never pill, making it the perfect lightweight moisturizer to layer on top of your first step. As an added bonus, it’s the perfect base for your makeup if you’re doing this routine in the morning!

 

 

Step 3 - Bright Repair Eye Cream

Somehow, our eyes seem to always be the neglected part of our skincare routine. Do we really need an entirely separate product just for this one area? The answer is an emphatic YES. The skin around our eyes is different than the rest of our face, and thus needs special care. Bright Repair Eye Cream is specifically designed to target dark circles and fine lines while protecting the integrity of our delicate eye skin. 10% Vitamin C visibly brightens while Green Tea and Grapeseed work to de-puff and knock out the intensity of dark circles for a calm, well-rested look. 

 

Step 4 - Luxury Beauty Serum

 

It has been called “the face oil to end all face oils” for a reason. Our award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum is a powerful treatment packed with hundreds of nutrients designed to reverse signs of aging and calm skin. This omega-rich serum not only delivers a huge dose of soothing botanicals to skin, it also packs a punch with actives such as Sea Buckthorn and Calendula, which gently resurface and detoxify pores. Luxury Beauty Serum is our holy grail, skin-transforming powerhouse and is the ultimate final layer to seal in all of the nutrients from the previous steps.

Sacred Botanicals: Helichrysum "The Everlasting Flower"

helichrysum_luxury_beauty_serum_saint_jane

In every drop of Saint Jane serum, every jar of eye cream, and every swipe of lip treatment are sacred, trusted botanicals that have been used for centuries to treat and transform the skin.

Of the 20 potent botanicals found in our award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum, Helichrysum is one we harness for its concentrated antioxidant potency and historical healing powers. This powerful botanical, also known as “Everlasting” or “Immortelle”, impresses with its extreme gentleness and high efficacy. 

Some of the first known uses of Helichrysum comes from the time of the Ancient Greeks, as it was known and used for its wound healing ability often used after the frequent battles of that time period. 

Helichrysum appears countless times in Greek mythology, most notably in Homer’s epic poem when the hero Oydsseus returns to the Pheonician coast and meets the divine Nausicaa, the beautiful daughter of the king. It is told the secret of her beauty is the extraordinary oil of the “flower that never fades, even when it is picked,” earning its name...Immortelle.

In addition to its rich history, this everlasting flower really shines when it comes to benefits for the skin, as the ancient women of history discovered. The renewing oil is an anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiseptic...the list goes on. The esters found naturally occurring in the oil are known to help reduce the appearance of acne and have a calming effect on the skin. The presence of naturally occurring chemical components make up the unique structure of this oil that’s powerful enough to balance oily and dry skin, but gentle enough for sensitive skin, especially when mixed with other botanicals (like the 19 others in Luxury Beauty Serum).

Helichrysum oil can be incredibly moisturizing, even for oily complexions and its powerful renewing properties have been shown to slow and even visibly reverse signs of aging. The high concentrations of antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties help to repair and restore skin cells, revive dull skin and combat fine lines and dark spots.

When selecting and sourcing our botanical blends, those that have the ability to calm skin stress are close to our hearts. Helichrysum is both antibiotic and antifungal and an effective treatment for so many skin irritations. Using a serum like Luxury Beauty Serum, with concentrations of Helichrysum can help combat skin stress like breakouts, eczema, psoriasis and other skin concerns. Our love for this everlasting flower and it’s healing history runs deep and infusing its sacred benefits into every golden drop will empower your skin to find balance and calm.

Nightly Calming Skincare Routine with Sunnie Brook

Life can be stressful. We believe that stealing moments of self-care for yourself whenever you can is so important to recharge your battery, soothe your soul, and relax your body. When was the last time you took a moment for yourself to just...be? Self-care is so much more than a good bath and a calming skincare routine, but it's a great place to start. It may seem small, but it can make all the difference.

We asked Sunnie Brook, celebrity hair stylist, beauty expert, and a busy new-mother how she incorporates Saint Jane into her nightly routine to melt away stress and prep for a restful night's sleep.

 

STEP 1: Calm and hydrate the skin.

One clean skin, apply a full dropper of Luxury Beauty Serum and massage into your skin for 3-5 minutes. This 100% clean serum has nutrient-dense hemp extract and 20 potent botanicals to gently resurface, calm skin stress, and hydrate the skin.

Pro Tip: Spend some extra time massaging the product into your temples and along the jawline to release tension and increase blood flow to the skin. (It’s really relaxing). For even better results and to help with lymphatic drainage, use a Smoothing Stone for a deep facial massage.

 

 

STEP 2: Brighten and depuff under eyes.

Next, layer on Bright Repair Eye Cream on your under eyes using your ring finger and gentle tapping motions. Concentrate the product on any dark circles or discoloration and tap the access over any fine lines and wrinkles and down onto the orbital bone and surrounding eye area.

This eye cream visibly corrects the intensity of dark circles and with 10% active Vitamin C, while calming botanicals work to de-puff delicate under eyes. Green Tea and Grapeseed deliver rich antioxidants for a calm, well-rested look.

Pro Tip: Store this eye cream in the fridge for even more of a cooling, de-puffing effect and a soothing experience.


STEP 3: An ultra-luxe bath.

This step is one of our favorite ways to use Luxury Body Serum. Run a hot bath (bubbles optional!) and dispense 3-5 pumps of Luxury Body Serum directly into the water. The nutrient-rich formula will permeate the water and envelope your skin for a restorative experience. 

Soak for at least 30 minutes (or longer if it's been one of those days). Allow the serum infused water to absorb into the skin and bask in the vanilla-bourbon sensory experience. 

Pro Tip: Give yourself a rub-down while soaking! Massage your hands, feet, calves or anywhere you feel tension. The potent hemp extract in the serum works wonders to soothe muscle fatigue. It's the ultimate in self-care


STEP 4: Post-bath hydration.

On damp, post-glorious bath skin, apply Luxury Body Serum here, there and everywhere. Massage into the skin until fully absorbed.

This serum is a vitamin-rich super blend packed with 28 potent botanicals delivering omegas, and exfoliating fruit acids into the skin. The blend is the perfect balance of rich hydration and gentle exfoliation to reveal the most radiant, silky soft skin.

Pro Tip: This body serum can be used in so many different ways. Try using as a cuticle treatment, or a leave-in hair oil for head to toe benefits. 


STEP 5: The best sleep of your life.

The body serum is super rich but absorbs really quickly meaning you can jump right into your pajamas, put on a sleep mask and crawl into bed.

Taking the time to treat your body to these simple self-care steps will help clear your mind, and relax your soul for the most deep, restful sleep that you deserve.

Pro Tip: Have trouble falling asleep? Listening to a meditation app or a soothing sound machine helps to calm your body and relax your mind.

Botanical-Infused Cocktails

Mix up these gorgeous cocktails inspired by the botanical ingredients found in some of our cult favorite Saint Jane skincare products. We're thoughtful and meticulous about sourcing and selecting each clean, potent ingredient that goes into our skin-saving elixirs. Designed to calm skin-stress, boost radiance and leave behind an iconic lit-from-within glow, we blend ingredients worthy of worship (and a signature cocktail!)

Speaking of calm, we can’t think of a better way to unwind throughout the holiday season than with a soothing skincare routine and something super festive to sip. Here’s what’s currently in our shaker…

Pomegranate Maple Fizz + Luxury Beauty Serum

Can you guess what this bubbly cocktail and our Luxury Beauty Serum have in common? Pomegranate is a powerhouse antioxidant that has been used for centuries for its natural benefits. We infuse Punica Granatum (pomegranate) seed extract into our Luxury Beauty Serum formula to help promote cell regeneration and fight the free-radicals that cause skin aging. Pomegranate is a dream botanical for both dry and oily skin types because of its small molecular structure that allows deep absorption into the skin delivering hydration where needed and soothing skin irritation.

Smoke and Cinnamon Old Fashioned + Luxury Body Serum

Warm, classic, and luxurious are just a few words that come to mind when we think of Bourbon cocktails and our iconic Bourbon-vanilla scented Luxury Body Serum. One of the best bits of feedback we get on our body serum is the delicious scent and what a beautiful experience it is for the body and the soul. We combined 28 potent, botanical-rich ingredients to deliver deep hydration and a boost of radiance to the skin. A real selfcare experience comes from the Vanilla Planifolia (bourbon vanilla) fruit extract for the senses and full-flower hemp extract helps to deeply calm the skin and tired muscles.

Grapefruit and Thyme Mocktail + The C-Drops

Something bright (and alcohol-free!) for your glass and your skin. We adore Citrus Paradisi (Pink Grapefruit) as one of our citrus alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) ingredients in The C-Drops for its potent, brightening properties and a high concentration of Vitamin C. Grapefruit works to gently resurface the skin, revealing fresh radiance and a smooth canvas to better absorb the serums and hydrators you apply next. Think of it as creating a clean slate for the skin, revealing a brighter glow and a more even tone and texture.
