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.

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.

SPF 101 With Dr. Nina Desai, Board Certified Dermatologist

Dr. Nina Desai, Board Certified Dermatologist answers all your SPF questions

When it comes to skin care, sun protection is of the utmost importance and should be a non-negotiable part of your daily ritual. Protecting your skin from harmful UVA/UVB radiation is crucial for both anti-aging and skin cancer prevention. When choosing and applying sunscreen, there are many factors. How much should you apply? How often should you reapply? Which sunscreen is right for you? What is a mineral sunscreen? Luckily, we asked a Board-Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Nina Desai, to give us the full SPF 101 with Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30. Dermatologists know best!

Q: What is a mineral sunscreen?

Dr. Desai: A mineral sunscreen, or a physical sunscreen, is made of either Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide. These products sit on the top layer of the skin and reflect harmful UV rays, acting as a barrier between your delicate skin and the damaging effects of the sun. Mineral sunscreens are safe for everyone, even children!

Q: How much sunscreen should you apply?

Dr. Desai: “I like to recommend the “3 Finger Method” when applying sunscreen. This means you disperse enough sunscreen to cover 3 fingers. Then you apply that amount to your face and your neck. Be sure to blend thoroughly. I love Luxury Sun Ritual because it doesn’t leave a white-cast like a lot of mineral sunscreens. The unique formula blend has a slight tint, which leaves an invisible, pore-smoothing finish while also keeping the skin hydrated.”

Q: How often should you reapply sunscreen?

Dr. Desai: Regardless of if you are wearing a mineral or a chemical sunscreen, you need to reapply your sunscreen every 2-3 hours if you are out in the sun, right after swimming and if you are exercising and sweating, especially.

Q: Is Luxury Sun Ritual a Tinted Foundation?

Dr. Desai: Luxury Sun Ritual’s unique formula combines 10% Zinc Oxide with a hint of color. It’s important to know that this product is not a foundation or a color product. This is a sunscreen and the hint of color balances out the white cast often left by Zinc Oxide, without sacrificing any of the powerful sun protection benefits. 

Q: Who do you recommend Luxury Sun Ritual to?

Dr. Desai: Absolutely anyone can use Luxury Sun Ritual, this product with its amazing ingredients provides superior sun protection while also nourishing and hydrating the skin, as well as reducing skin redness. When you apply this product you’ll notice your pores are blurred and your skin feels supple and smooth. This product is great worn alone or under makeup. A beauty must-have!

 

Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30 blends invisibly into the skin leaving zero white cast.

Q: Does Luxury Sun Ritual work for all skin tones?

Dr. Desai: As a dermatologist  and a woman of color I have tried countless sunscreens that leave a white cast on my skin...leaving you looking like a ghost! Luxury Sun Ritual has a unique formula that has a hint of color that balances out any white cast that mineral sunscreens often leave behind. It blends seamlessly into the skin and leaves you with an invisible, hydrating soft-focus finish. It is both wearable and inclusive for all skin tones. 


Luxury Sun Ritual is so much more than sunscreen. In addition to providing dermatologist-approved sun protection, with 10% Zinc Oxide and an SPF of 30, this unique formula softly blurs pores, beautifully primes your skin for makeup, and hydrates and calms your skin with Desert Rose, Hibiscus and Jasmine. Your all-in-one, beauty must-have!

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.

Desert Rose in our Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30

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
