Winter Skin Solutions with SAINT JANE (Say Goodbye to Dry Skin)

Winter Skincare Favorites to combat Dry, Dull Complexions All Season Long

When the temperature drops, we bundle up with thick jackets, boots and scarves to keep cozy, forgetting that the skin on our face stays exposed to the harsh elements every day. It’s so important to give your skin extra TLC during the cold winter months because it stays constantly exposed to cold, dry air and unforgiving elements. In most places the temperature and the humidity both drop which is the least favorable conditions for balanced, healthy skin to thrive. Nearly all skin types struggle during the winter in some way, calling for a new skin ritual action plan. So what to do? Give your skin nourishing, moisture-drenching products that bring your skin back to life…all winter long, from head to toe.

Hydration Hydration Hydration

The most common effect of winter temperatures on our skin is loss of moisture. In order to bring your skin back to a balanced state of hydration, using a daily moisturizer from head to toe is essential. 

  • For the face: Our Hydrating Petal Cream is infused with Pure Hyaluronic Acid which powerfully draws in and seals moisture into your skin, for a long-lasting moisture boost. Apply 2-3 pumps every morning after cleansing and serums.
  • For the body: Our Hydrabloom Body Silk is the ideal daily body moisturizer for dry skin. Also formulated with Hyaluronic Acid + our Sea Flower Complex, our light-weight body silk intensely hydrates, absorbs instantly and beautifully combats dry winter skin.

Smooth and Boost Brightness

Your skin can also become dull and flakey during the winter months meaning you need to incorporate products that have active ingredients to slough away dead skin, regenerate cell-turnover and prep your skin to receive moisture.

  • For the face: Our The C-Drops have 20% Vitamin C and citrus actives that work to visibly smooth and renew the surface of your skin, giving you a boost of brightness and a smooth canvas for all your hydrating products to layer over.
  • For the body: Luxury Body Serum is packed with citrus like Pink Grapefruit and Blood Orange that work to smooth dead skin for a boost of radiance and nourishment.

Don’t Forget Your Eyes!

Your under-eyes are the most delicate part of your face and often the first area to show signs of aging and distress. Our Bright Repair Eye Cream is ultra-hydrating with Green Tea and Grapeseed, but also brightening with 10% Vitamin C for total nourishment. Apply a liberal amount under your eyes every evening after cleansing and serums.

Retinol in Winter? Yes!

Incorporating treatments into your winter skincare ritual is also important to keep your skin ecosystem in regular balance…exfoliate, nourish, hydrate REPEAT.

Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair

 

Especially in the winter months, incorporating a gentle Retinol treatment 1-2 times per week will help exfoliate dead skin cells and boost cell-turnover. Our Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair is the ideal Retinol treatment for winter, because in addition to the 0.5% Retinol in the formula is Violet Flower and Lavender which are both extremely calming florals. These active ingredients are infused into an ultra-rich, hydrating night cream that keeps your skin moisturized and plump while you sleep. Apply 1-2x per week as a last step in your evening skincare ritual.

For those evenings where you aren’t using Sacred Sleep, our best-selling Luxury Beauty Serum can be applied as a last step for an ultra-rich drench of hydration and skin-calming nutrients. We blend active florals like Rose, Helichrysum and Sunflower to deeply nourish and hydrate your winter skin.

Our Gentle, Yet Powerful Approach to Anti-Aging

 

Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair Retinol Treatment

Discover Your Beauty Sleep

Our award-winning Retinol infused night treatment, Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair is our gentle yet effective solution to anti-aging.  This powerful but gentle night treatment is one of our most innovative formulas. Our approach to Retinol is very intentional, and solution-oriented. We infused gentle, calming and hydrating ingredients like Violet Flower, Lavender and Evening Primrose to counteract the 0.5% Retinol, which can often be drying. You receive all of the incredible benefits of Retinol like diffusing fine lines, combating hyperpigmentation and age spots, without the irritation and dryness. After cleansing and toning your skin, apply Sacred Sleep as your final step 3-4 times per week. Incorporating Sacred Sleep into your evening ritual will have you waking up to restored and revitalized skin morning after morning. 

Retinol for All

The general skincare community has a love/hate relationship with Retinol. On the one hand, it is extremely effective when it comes to repairing the skin, blurring fine lines, smoothing skin texture and boosting collagen production, but on the other it can be harsh and isn’t ideal for sensitive skin, as an active ingredient.

Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair breaks all the boundaries of a traditional Retinol in many ways. Our solution was to combat the strength of this powerful treatment with calming ingredients like Violet Flower and Lavender, to offset redness and sensitivity. Next, instead of creating a Retinol serum, like you typically see, we decided to infuse our 0.5% Retinol into a rich, ultra-hydrating night cream with Orchid and Evening Primrose that deliver lasting hydration. The result is the powerful toning, plumping benefits of Retinol with none of the redness, irritation or dryness from traditional Retinols.

Sacred Sleep is a hero product, especially for those with sensitive skin, which overall, 60–70% of women and 50–60% of men report having some degree of sensitive skin. This nightly treatment allows sensitive skin to experience the full effects of Retinol, safely and gently. 

Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair Retinol Treatment Night Cream

Nightly Retinol + Daily SPF

Sacred Sleep’s innovative formula is centered around the fact that sunlight decreases the efficacy of Retinol and isn’t as effective during the day. Using a Retinol treatment overnight allows the full effect of this anti-aging ingredient to transform your skin while you dream. Beauty sleep is not a myth, especially when it comes to your skin. During sleep, your skin's blood flow increases, and rebuilds its collagen and repairs damage from UV exposure, reducing wrinkles and age spots. Sacred Sleep aids your skin’s natural, overnight process to further aid in building collagen and increase cell turnover for even more powerful results. 

 Retinol, even when formulated with calming ingredients like those found in Sacred Sleep, makes your skin more sensitive to UV rays. When incorporating a Retinol treatment into your weekly skincare ritual, you must be diligent about applying a daily broad-spectrum SPF 30, like our Luxury Sun Ritual, to protect your skin. 

Real Results

In an independent clinical testing panel of 60 women ages 30 to 59 who regularly used Sacred Sleep 3-4 times per week at night on clean, dry skin:

  • 100% found age spots and hyperpigmentation visibly reduced
  • 84% saw a significant reduction in fine lines
  • 83% did not experience peeling or redness
  • 74% found their skin was firmer and lifted

With continued, diligent use, Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair is a powerful treatment that delivers visibly smoother, plumper and more even-toned skin while you dream.

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. 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!).

ICONIC INGREDIENT: RETINOL

Have you heard the news? We’ve added Retinol, a powerhouse skincare ingredient by anyone’s standards, to our impressive ingredient list with the launch of Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair. This renewing treatment of Luxury Active Florals and powerful Retinol restores while you dream. Before you click *add to cart*, learn more about our innovative new formula and how it can transform your skin!

What is Retinol?

There are few skincare ingredients more renowned than Retinol, but do we actually know what it is and what it does for our skin? Retinol is a powerful antioxidant and a derivative of Vitamin A. When applied topically, it converts to retinoic acid and has the ability to penetrate deeply into skin. 

 

Retinol has become a coveted skincare ingredient partially due to its anti-aging ability. At once this hardworking ingredients can increase cell turnover, reduce evidence of sun damage, improve texture, minimize fine lines and pores…the list goes on. See some of the many benefits of Retinol below:

 

  • Reduces visible signs of aging by increasing cell turnover and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boosts collagen production and inhibits the enzyme that breaks down collagen and elastin
  • Evens skin tone and reverses sun damage by fading hyperpigmentation
  • Improves skin's texture by resurfacing to reveal a smoother complexion
  • Helps prevent breakouts by detoxifying pores and controlling overactive oil glands

 

While Retinol sounds like a no-brainer to add to your skincare regime like, yesterday, it’s important to understand the potential for adverse side effects. Many people suffer from irritation and retinol sensitivity while acclimating to using a retinol-based product. There are many ways to reduce Retinol sensitivity, such as using the product less frequently and being mindful of what other ingredients you combine it with. 

 

How Is Sacred Sleep Different From Other Retinol Products? 

When formulating Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair we wanted to ensure we delivered all the benefits of retinol while minimizing or eliminating its less desirable side effects. We paired .5% retinol with a host of inflammation and irritation fighting ingredients powered by our signature luxury active florals. Here are a few of the soothing florals found in Sacred Sleep:

 

  • Violet Flower: This soothing flower soothes dry, chafed skin and alleviates irritation
  • Elderberry Flower: Rich in antioxidants, elderberry rejuvenates skin and promotes healing
  • Lavender: This healing herb reduces inflammation and redness
