Luxury Active Florals: Desert Rose

Desert Rose for hydrating, protective skin benefits

 

At SAINT JANE, florals have always been our muse when developing our luxury, meticulously clean formulas with your skin in mind. Sustainably-sourced and respectfully harvested, our florals are hand selected to harness their innate abilities to deeply nourish, hydrate and protect your skin. These sacred florals have been used for centuries for their powerful benefits for skin wellness.

After more than 2 years of research and rigorous testing, we formulated our LUXURY SUN RITUAL SPF 30 with luxury active florals specifically known to thrive in dry, harsh, warm climates. Among these florals found in our innovative formula is DESERT ROSE, also known as “the resurrection plant” in Latin American culture. This resilient plant is known for its ability to spring back to life, surviving even the most extreme dehydration. 

How is this possible? Scientists believe the DESERT ROSE is able to gather and store sugars and amino acids that strengthen the elasticity of its cell walls, which keeps them in tact. This rare and remarkable ability produces the same moisture-boosting super powers when applied to your skin. DESERT ROSE also acts as both a humectant and an emollient, meaning it takes on both roles of both drawing moisture into your skin, and locking it in place preventing moisture loss. Its dual-purpose roll even outperforms Hyaluronic Acid when it comes to hydration.

DESERT ROSE is a triple threat when it comes to skincare benefits. Not only is it deeply hydrating and effective in increasing moisture levels, but it also has a positive impact on your skin’s protective outer barrier. Because it is an emollient and can lock in moisture, it can strengthen your skin barrier, the protective layer of your skin. The stronger your skin barrier, the better your overall skin wellness. Skin density is also positively affected by DESERT ROSE. Increasing skin density can transform the way your skin looks and feels, with reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How does DESERT ROSE perform in our sunscreen? Because wearing SPF should be a daily part of everyone’s skincare routine, formulating LUXURY SUN RITUAL with multi-tasking ingredients was important to us. The hydrating, protective, and nourishing benefits of DESERT ROSE allow this product to act as so much more than a sunscreen. Applying LUXURY SUN RITUAL every morning acts as a primer, moisturizer and sunscreen in one step. Ideal for sun-sensitive skin, your skin will stay hydrated and nourished while receiving crucial sun protection. Continue reading

What's Your Skin Type? Saint Jane Solutions for Every Complexion

What's Your Skin Type? Skincare Solutions for Every Complexion

At SAINT JANE, when our teams go to work on developing a new skincare product, your complexions and the individual nuances of your skin are at the forefront of our minds. How we can craft formulas that benefit a myriad of skin concerns, products that multi-task and bring balance, and most importantly beautifully support the multitude of skin types of our clients.

Our skin types are as different as our personalities, and knowing your skin type is crucial in finding the right rituals to support your skin. While skin types can be complex, your skin will likely fall into one or more of these categories: Dry, Oily, Combination, Normal or Sensitive. 

No matter your skin type, there are SAINT JANE powerhouse products that beautifully and efficaciously address skin concerns. Here are our recommendations according to your skin type:

DRY SKIN

Having dry skin can be both uncomfortable and frustrating, as hydration plays such a key role in the overall function of our skin on the surface and the cellular level. Hydrating ingredients are always present in our formulas because they are a consistent need across every skin type, but especially for dry skin. If your skin is in desperate need of moisture and hydration, you need:

  • HYDRATING PETAL CREAM, our light-weight but deeply hydrating daily moisturizer. This petal packed cream can be applied both morning and night after cleansing and serums. We infuse this daily hydrator with powerful luxury active florals like Hibiscus, Pink Lotus and Honeysuckle for petal soft skin and potent hydrating benefits.
  • LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM, our best-selling powerhouse serum with ultra hydrating and nourishing ingredients like Omega-3 fatty acids, Sunflower, Rosehip and Sea Buckthorn. This beautiful blend of luxury active florals, not only calm, nourish and hydrate the skin, but also locks in moisture. The ideal final step in your dry skin routine.

OILY SKIN

The biggest myth of having oily skin is that you have to deprive your skin of moisturizing products. Oily skin is caused by the overproduction of sebum, and is off-balance. The solution is to work towards balancing your skin and incorporating ingredient-driven products into your routine. Two of the best balancing ingredients for oily skin types are Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol. We have two beautiful products that happen to have these balancing ingredients:

  • HYDRATING PETAL CREAM boasts Hyaluronic Acid as a hero ingredient in the formula, and because this daily cream is so light-weight and absorbs quickly, it's the perfect hydrator for oily skin as well.
  • SACRED SLEEP OVERNIGHT REPAIR is our 0.5% Retinol solution formulated as an overnight treatment. Retinol is a powerful ingredient as it can aid in building up collagen and firming the skin. As a result, you can experience tighter pores that emit less oil for a more balanced complexion. 

SENSITIVE SKIN

We have a special place in our hearts for those with sensitive skin. So much so, that every formula we create is infused with calming ingredients that soothe the skin and counteract any active ingredients traditionally known to irritate sensitivities. If you have sensitive skin, then you know it can be difficult to find products that are gentle enough to be effective, but also that don’t cause flare ups, redness or inflammation. We especially love recommending these products to our clients with sensitive skin:

  • THE C-DROPS, our gentle yet effective 10% Vitamin C serum, is the perfect solution for those with sensitive skin. Vitamin C is a highly active ingredient, and traditionally can be problematic for sensitive skin types. When we formulated The C-Drops, we included powerfully calming ingredients to counteract any harshness that Vitamin C delivers. These Vitamin C brightening drops are gentle but still very effective. 
  • LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM has been a cult-favorite among our sensitive skin clients. This golden elixir is centered around visibly calming and soothing the skin from concerns like redness, irritation and inflammation. Among the many ingredients in the efficacious blend are Sunflower, Helichrysum and Marula that are naturally calming for the skin.

COMBINATION SKIN

This skin type can be tricky, as your skin can experience many concerns at once. Dry and oily areas in the same complexion need balance. Incorporating products that hydrate dry areas and exfoliate/resurface oily areas are important in your routine. Combination skin will greatly benefit from the same products recommended for both DRY and OILY skin types:

NORMAL

If your skin falls in the “normal” category, then lucky you! Your skin is balanced and can handle both hydrators and active treatments (all of the above!).

Simple Skincare Rituals for Every Skin Type

simple skincare rituals featuring the hydrators and the resurfacers

At SAINT JANE we believe in clean skincare infused with Luxury Active Florals that deliver powerful results. No matter your skin type or skin concerns, there is a simple routine that can help you achieve optimal skin wellness. Incorporating a few products into your morning and evening rituals, can not only be beneficial for the skin but also empower beautiful moments of self-care. 

the hydrators hydrating skincare set

The Hydrators

Hydration is a key factor in having healthy, balanced skin. Whether your skin is dry, combination or oily, applying products that deeply hydrate will rejuvenate your skin so it looks and feels smooth and soft. The outermost layer of the skin needs moisture to flush away toxins and carry nutrients to the skin’s cells. Skin that is well-hydrated also is less sensitive to irritants and germs that can slip through the lipid barrier when the skin lacks moisture.

For deep skin hydration, we recommend The Hydrators, which is our duo featuring Hydrating Petal Cream + Luxury Beauty Serum:

  • First apply Hydrating Petal Cream after cleansing and toning. This daily drench is the perfect lightweight moisturizer that is infused with Hyaluronic Acid and Hibiscus Peptides that boost elastin and deliver moisture to the skin.

For an extra dose of rich hydration, next layer our hero product Luxury Beauty Serum over top as a last step. This serum is packed with nutrients and omegas that nourish and along with ultra-hydrating Luxury Active Florals like sunflower, rosehip and jojoba.

the resurfacers skincare set

The Resurfacers

In order to achieve that petal soft skin, incorporating products that have actives to renew skin cells and gently resurface is essential.  Resurfacing serums increase cell turnover and gently renew skin cells to reveal more youthful, glowing skin underneath. They are formulated with chemical exfoliators, which are gentle, low-percentage acids. These types of products really help prep the skin to receive hydration and other nutrients from your other skincare.

For gentle skin resurfacing, we recommend The Resurfacers, which is our face and body duo The C-Drops and Luxury Body Serum. These two products deliver head to toe glow.

  • For the face, apply The C-Drops in the AM after cleansing. This ultra-brightening serum uses gentle citrus actives and Vitamin C to gently resurface the skin revealing a smooth glassy glow.
  • For the body, apply Luxury Body Serum after a bath or shower for best results. Packed with 28 omega-rich botanicals and exfoliating fruit acids, this silky serum reveals soft, radiant skin all day long. 

Having skincare rituals that resurface the skin, renew skin cells and deeply hydrate can help achieve a myriad of skin goals. The key to overall skin wellness is balance, and incorporating these simple routines into your daily practice is a powerful way to get there.

LUXURY ACTIVE FLORALS: PINK LOTUS

If you’ve tried our award-winning Hydrating Petal Cream, you know that we formulated this featherweight cream with 10 floral essences, each with their own specific benefits for skin. One of the most historically symbolic of these Luxury Active Florals is the Pink Lotus flower. 

 

Of all the florals in our meticulously-clean formulas, the Lotus has perhaps one of the richest histories. It was revered as a symbol of purity and tranquility in several cultures. To the ancient Egyptians, it was a symbol of rebirth due to the way the flower recedes into the water at night and re-blooms fresh every morning. In Hinduism and Buddhism, the Lotus is a symbol of purity, renewal, and enlightenment. The color of the flower is also significant in Buddhist teachings, with pink being considered the ‘true lotus’ of Buddha.

 

The benefits of Pink Lotus in skincare are not dissimilar to the reasons it was beloved by ancient civilizations. A powerful antioxidant with anti-aging capabilities, the sacred flower is a natural fit in Hydrating Petal CreamThe lotus contains a potent amount of polyphenols and flavonoids, including Kaempferol, which is known to have the highest antioxidant level amongst 35 types of flavonoids. These help protect against free radical damage, which is a leading cause of visible premature aging. An additional benefit to preventing damage from environmental factors is that in doing so collagen and elastin production are protected, which enables the skin to remain youthful for longer.

 

Lotus is also a rich natural source of Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids, which gently resurface skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By removing dead surface cells, newer, brighter skin is allowed to shine through. While the AHA content may sound unappealing to those with sensitive skin, the flower also contains many soothing properties to counteract any irritation caused by the AHAs. Lotus is a natural anti-inflammatory, which soothes redness and stressed skin. It also replenishes moisture and is naturally healing, it is even frequently used in natural medicine for wound healing. 

 

Finally, Lotus is oil-balancing and purifying due to its ability to absorb toxins from skin and clear the complexion. It helps control sebum production without stripping skin of its natural moisture, meaning its safe to use for those with oily or acne-prone skin.

THE ULTIMATE SAINT JANE FACIAL

Facial smoothing stones have become all the rage with aestheticians and influencers alike. In fact, you’ve probably seen them floating around your Instagram or TikTok feeds on more than one occasion. Users swear by their ability to depuff and contour the face, but you’re certainly not alone if you’ve ever looked at one and thought, “How the heck am I supposed to use this?”. Not to worry – we’ll guide you through the step-by-step process using our Obsidian Smoothing Stone coupled with Luxury Beauty Serum and Hydrating Petal Cream for the ultimate SAINT JANE facial!

 

Step 1 – Prep

 

On a freshly cleansed face, apply one full dropper of Luxury Beauty Serum. The omega-rich formula not only delivers a boost of nutrients, the oil also helps saturate the skin to ensure the best canvas for the Obsidian Smoothing Stone. The anti-inflammatory properties in the serum augments the depuffing power of the stone for your most radiant results.

 

Step 2 – Smooth

 

 

Using the below diagram as a guide, glide the Obsidian Smoothing Stone across your face in the directions shown using sweeping, fluid motions. Pressure, as well as direction, is important. Pressing too hard will not increase the effectiveness of the tool, instead you should think of pulling rather than pushing on the skin. Gliding the stone across your face in this manner promotes better blood circulation which in turn helps to depuff.

 

 

Start at the base of the neck and follow the arrows in upward motions as shown. Repeat each stroke 5-10 times for optimal results. Make sure to sweep the stone all the way to the outer edges of your face with each stroke.

 

Step 3 – Lock In The Results

 

 

 

As a finishing step, we love to apply Hydrating Petal Cream to lock in the benefits from steps 1 and 2. The 1% pure hyaluronic acid formula delivers hydration for plump, glowing skin while floral essences like Magnolia soften and smooth. Hibiscus seed peptides, dubbed “Nature’s Botox”, promote elastin production for firm, contoured skin.

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 our nighttime 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.
