Summer Skin Recovery: The Power of a Retinoid Regimen

Summer Skin Recovery: The Power of a Retinoid Regimen - Sente Labs

A daily skincare routine with retinol can be quite effective after the summer months to help you combat damage associated with the weather and spending time in the sun. Using retinol in summer is important to recover from summer sun damage, even out your skin tone, and increase skin firmness and smoothness. In particular, Senté skincare products with retinol allow you to enjoy the benefits of retinoids, even if you have sensitive skin.

What is Retinol?

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A that’s frequently used in anti-aging skincare products. Retinol promotes skin cell turnover and stimulates collagen under the skin. The problem is that many people who try a skincare routine with retinol—especially potent, prescription-strength retinol—find that it’s overly harsh, causing uncomfortable side effects like peeling, flaking, redness, dryness, burning, itching, and irritation. That’s not the case with Senté retinol creams and serums, since they are formulated for sensitive skin.

3-Step Retinol Regimen 

Step 1. Bio Complete Serum: Retinoid for First-Time Users

For those trying a skincare routine with retinol for the first time, or for those who have had negative experiences with other retinoids, Senté Bio Complete Serum is a superb option. It’s formulated with gentle, sustained-release retinoids that deliver the benefits over a prolonged period of time. 

Senté Bio Complete Serum boosts cell turnover without causing irritation, and the hydrating formula helps to reduce visible redness and dryness. It’s clinically shown to promote a more even-looking skin tone within eight weeks.

Step 2. Dermal Repair Cream: Renewing Moisturizer

One of the most popular Senté retinol skincare products is Dermal Repair Cream. Formulated with patented Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA) technology and green tea extract, this revolutionary product is clinically shown to provide deep hydration and rejuvenation, even for those with extremely sensitive skin. It helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and reduce visible redness. We also offer a Dermal Repair Body Cream.

Step 3: Even Tone Mineral SPF: A Physical Sunscreen

Using retinol in summer can deliver powerful results, but it’s crucial that you also incorporate sunscreen into your skincare routine with retinol. Senté Even Tone Mineral SPF is a physical sunscreen that’s formulated with minerals that act as a protective barrier on your skin, shielding it from the harmful effects of UVA/UVB visible light and blue light.

In addition to offering exceptional protection from harmful ultraviolet and visible blue light, Senté Even Tone Mineral SPF—available in SPF 40 for light-medium skin tones and SPF 36 for medium-dark skin tones— contains iron oxide that helps to protect the skin from damage associated with external stressors, such as airborne free radicals and pollutants.

There’s another reason why Senté Even Tone Mineral SPF should be incorporated into your summer skincare routine with retinol: It’s made with Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA), so while it’s protecting your skin, it’s simultaneously boosting your body’s immune response, helping to enhance your skin’s natural ability to renew itself from within, and helping to stop inflammation before it occurs.
