7 Common Skin Concerns and Solutions - Sente Labs

From chronic facial redness to visible signs of aging, most of us have a skin problem or two that we’d like to go away. Fortunately, there are many effective anti-aging, redness, and dry skin solutions that can improve your complexion. With a consistent self-care routine and medical-grade skincare products, you can get smoother, more radiant skin within weeks. Learn about seven common skin concerns and how our clinically backed solutions can help give you the freedom of healthier-looking skin.

Dry or Dehydrated Skin

Although often used interchangeably, dry and dehydrated skin are not the same. Dehydration is a dermal condition that develops because your skin doesn’t have enough water. Dry skin, on the other hand, occurs when skin lacks sufficient oils and lipids. Dehydrated skin feels tight and is more prone to premature aging, while dry skin is flaky and has a rough appearance.

To find effective dehydrated or dry skin solutions, you must understand what causes each problem in the first place. Dehydration occurs because of a damaged skin barrier, which leads to increased water loss. Dry skin can be genetic or develop over time, as aging makes your skin produce less oil.

Solutions for Dehydrated Skin

After covering dry skin problems and solutions, let’s now talk about how to relieve dehydrated skin. Because dehydrated skin results from an impaired barrier, renewing the skin barrier can help lock water in and maintain proper moisture balance. Senté Dermal Repair Cream is formulated with patented Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA) technology, a revolutionary molecule that is clinically proven to help boost skin barrier function.

Solutions for Dry Skin

Since dry skin is caused by a lack of oils, applying lipid-rich topical products can replace those missing fatty acids. Formulated with a unique lipid blend of argan oil and triglycerides, Senté Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish is an award-winning, revolutionary product that contains HSA and a unique blend of nourishing lipids designed to address dry to very dry skin types. Use as a dry skin solution to help replenish your skin’s healthy fats within eight weeks.

Redness-Prone Skin

Moving on from dehydrated and dry skin solutions, we’ll now talk about skin redness and anti-redness solutions. Redness-prone skin is another common skin concern that affects millions of people. When exposed to triggers like stress or sunlight, people with this skin type can develop severe inflammation that results in an uncomfortable red complexion. This excessive redness can fade over time or never go away, giving you a permanently red and sensitive face. For some, this can be emotionally devastating.

Solutions for Facial Redness

Senté's patented and proprietary Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA) helps replenish skin's depleted Heparan Sulfate levels, providing a natural boost to your skin’s immune response.

This is a naturally occurring molecule found on the surface of healthy cells that plays an essential role in the skin's immune response to inflammation. Senté was the first brand to successfully design a low molecular weight version of Heparan Sulfate and infuse it into medical-grade skincare products. Studies have shown that Senté products formulated with Heparan Sulfate Analog can help reduce visible redness in as little as 4 weeks. That’s why Senté chemical-free sunscreens and proprietary HSA products can help you avoid the risk of flare-ups while alleviating facial redness.

Sensitive Skin

From solutions for dry skin and redness, let’s now delve into sensitive skin problems and solutions. Sensitive skin refers to a skin type that is easily irritated by environmental factors. When it comes into contact with external irritants, sensitive skin overreacts and produces an abnormal sensory response, leading to facial reddening, burning, and stinging.

While some people naturally have more sensitive skin, chemical-laden beauty products chemical-laden beauty products can aggravate all skin-types, creating skin sensitization. Harsh soaps and irritating ingredients in conventional skincare brands deteriorate barrier integrity, enabling environmental irritants to aggravate deeper layers of skin.

As with anti-redness and dry skin solutions, there are effective products that can help sensitive skin look and feel its best. Clean, hypoallergenic, and free of irritating ingredients, Senté medical-grade skincare products are specially formulated for sensitive skin. Use our soap-free Daily Soothing Cleanser to purify skin and calm irritation without disrupting barrier function.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are creases that form in areas of facial movement. When you’re young, your skin is elastic and easily bounces back from repeated facial movements. Aging damages the elastin fibers that provide elasticity to the skin. This makes aging skin unable to snap back to its original shape, creating skin folds that show up as fine lines and wrinkles on your face.

Solutions for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Now that we’ve gone over sensitive and dry skin problems and solutions, it’s time to discuss how to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You can soften fine lines and wrinkles by using anti-aging products that reverse skin damage and stimulate new cell growth.

Senté Bio Complete Serum is formulated with slow release retinoids to gradually release the rejuvenating retinoid benefits over time and exclusive HSA technology to help promote repair from within. It is the perfect anti-aging solution for sensitive skin and first time retinol users.

The exclusive HSA technology gives you the ultimate anti-aging solution. HSA helps damaged skin while slow-release retinoids boost cell turnover to encourage new elastin production. With our non-irritating vitamin A serum, you can get smoother, younger-looking skin in eight weeks.

Skin Discoloration

One of the most common skin concerns, skin discoloration refers to a complexion that is marred by hyperpigmentation. Skin irritation or injury, sun damage, and hormonal disorders can increase melanin production, resulting in unwanted dark spots and patches on your skin. Other than melanin overproduction, aging can also thin your skin and give you dark undereye circles.

Unlike dry skin or redness solutions, improvements for skin discoloration will depend on what is causing the hyperpigmentation. To lighten dark undereye circles, you need an anti-aging eye cream that can reverse skin thinning.

Senté offers many types of skin discoloration solutions to help you address different causes of hyperpigmentation. With our new Cysteamine HSA product, you can reduce the appearance of stubborn dark spots/patches after four months of daily application. We also recommend Senté Illuminé Eye Cream⏤an anti-aging product that helps diminish the appearance of dark circles, redness, fine lines, and puffiness around the eyes. This helps reduce the appearance of blue blood vessels that cause dark undereye circles.

Skin Laxity

Aging skin problems and solutions go beyond wrinkle care. Another common skin concern associated with aging is dermal laxity, which refers to loose skin. Over time, factors like free radical damage and UV exposure affect the quality and quantity of collagen and elastin fibers. These fibers provide structural support and are responsible for giving your skin its firmness and elasticity. When these supporting structures weaken, your skin begins to sag.

Solutions for Skin Laxity

And now that we’ve covered everything from redness to dry skin solutions, we’ll explain how to firm lax skin. Remember we said that skin sags because it has fewer and lower quality elastin and collagen fibers? A skincare product that can renew damaged elastin and collagen fibers and help produce new ones can also work to tighten your skin.

Senté Dermal Contour Pressed Serum helps firm and repair from within. Exclusive Heparan Sulfate Analog rapidly and profoundly hydrates and strengthens the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Skin-Firming Duo Dermatan Sulfate Analog (DSA) and Chondroitin Sulfate Analog (CSA) support the skin’s natural ability to promote collagen and elastin production for firmer, younger-looking skin. HSA helps impaired collagen and elastin fibers, while CSA and DSA stimulate new collagen and elastin production. Clinical studies have shown that our pressed formula can improve skin firmness in 12 weeks.
