The arrival of a colder, drier climate means it’s time to put together the perfect fall skincare regimen. Your approach to skincare for autumn should focus heavily on products that hydrate, nourish, heal, and protect the skin. After all, it’s no secret that harsh winds, chilly temperatures, and even your indoor heating can take a major toll on your complexion. Read on for expert tips on how to transition skin care from summer to fall.
Use Gentle Cleansers to Protect Your Skin’s Natural Barrier
As you put together your fall skincare plan, it might be time to switch to a new cleanser. Did you know that the majority of the cleansers on the market are actually more harmful than beneficial? Soaps and fragrances can aggravate inflammation, but that’s not all. Many of them erode your skin’s natural defensive barrier, leaving your skin vulnerable to external stressors.
Senté cleansers are fragrance and soap-free. They remove environmental debris and cosmetic products effectively, without disturbing your skin’s protective barrier. Not only does this help to keep moisture in, but it also helps to keep allergens, pollutants, and other undesirables from absorbing into your skin’s outer layer.
Hydrate With HSA-Infused Products
Cold, dry weather and dehydrated skin go hand-in-hand. While moisturizing regularly can certainly help, taking steps to improve moisture retention is a much more effective strategy when it comes to skincare for autumn.
Senté hydration products are formulated with patented HSA technology — a revolutionary molecule that helps restore barrier function and helps your skin renew itself naturally from within. Additionally, Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA) offers multiple other benefits, including reducing visible redness, delivering deep hydration, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps boost the skin's immune response to inflammation — all important factors to keep in mind when developing a fall skincare routine.
HSA is backed by science, recommended by countless dermatologists, and patented by and exclusive to Senté. It’s infused into many of our hydrating products alongside other hydrating ingredients such as ceramides, hyaluronic acid, nourishing lipids, and niacinamide, among others.
Clinical studies have shown that Senté hydrating products:
- Deliver long-lasting moisturization and hydration after eight weeks of use.
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 73% of participants after eight weeks of use.
- Boost skin hydration in 100% of participants after two weeks of use.
Strengthen Your Skin With Retinol
Retinol can be a powerful addition to your fall skincare routine because it stimulates the dermis, encouraging cell turnover and the production of elastin and collagen, naturally helping the skin to maintain its thickness and elasticity.
Now, if you’re familiar with retinol, you might be surprised that we would recommend it for skincare for autumn. After all, retinol is known for being a harsh ingredient that can irritate the skin — a major problem in cold climates that already irritate the skin. The Senté Bio Complete Serum is different; we use slow-release, medical-grade retinoids that are highly effective, yet gentle enough for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Moisturize as Needed
Of course, no fall skincare routine is complete without a moisturizer. Senté Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish is an excellent choice because it nourishes dry skin, helps reduce visible redness, and includes ceramides to help boost moisture in the skin and improve barrier function.
Don’t Put Away the Sunscreen
Did you know that you should be wearing sunscreen every day, all year round? While the scorching summer sun certainly lets you know that it’s time to slather on some protection, the cooler months can be deceptive. The sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate clouds, so it’s important to incorporate sunscreen into your fall skincare routine.
Even if you’re not going to be spending time outdoors, you should still apply a physical, mineral-based sunscreen daily. In particular, Senté sunscreen creams are chemical-free and formulated with zinc oxide — a natural mineral that acts as a broad-spectrum barrier between your skin and the sun’s UVA light, as well as UVB light from electronic devices and some types of lighting and environmental stressors like airborne pollution and free radicals.
Besides acting as a protective layer, zinc oxide is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. That’s why it’s frequently used in anti-rash and anti-itch creams. Add Senté sunscreen to your fall skincare kit so you can prevent environmental damage while simultaneously soothing inflammation.
