Sunshine season is right around the corner. Your skincare products should also change for the summertime. Every season presents its own challenges to your skin, requiring different solutions to address your concerns.
Out of all the seasons, summer is one of the harshest on your skin. The sun’s UV radiation intensifies during the summer months, doing more damage than any other time of the year. And if that wasn’t enough, summer heat makes your skin oilier and more prone to breakouts. Without the right skincare products, the hot, sunny season can damage and discolor your skin.
Here are seven essential skincare products you’ll need to keep your skin healthy, nourished, and radiant all summer long:
Daily Soothing Cleanser
What’s more uncomfortable than sweating profusely in the summer heat? Dealing with the visible repercussions of oily skin. Increased temperature and humidity levels during the summer stimulate your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. This extra oil mixes with sweat and dead skin cells, which end up clogging your pores. Clogged pores can cause blackheads, whiteheads, and acne.
It’s tempting to reach for strong foaming cleansers. However, because they are too stripping, harsh cleansers provoke your skin to pump out more oil. To keep your skin blemish-free throughout summer, use a gentle face wash like the Senté Daily Soothing Cleanser. This summer essential skincare product will remove all impurities and keep your skin clean and clear.
We all want that radiant summer look. Along with using nourishing skincare products, exfoliating your skin is key to getting that healthy summer glow. Exfoliation gets rid of dull, dead skin cells, and reveals younger-looking, more luminous skin beneath. Although essential for skin rejuvenation, using the wrong exfoliator in summer can do more harm than good.
Physical exfoliants, like gritty scrubs, can tear your skin, making it more vulnerable to sun damage. If you want healthy, dewy summer skin, opt for chemical exfoliants instead. Senté Exfoliating Cleanser contains mild alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) to promote gentle cell turnover. More than a summer skincare essential, this product will help you radiate all year-round.
Dermal Repair Cream
Summer is not kind to your skin. The sun’s UV rays are at their strongest during the summer months, causing maximum damage to the skin. This damage not only weakens the dermal structure but also triggers inflammation which impairs your skin’s natural repair mechanisms. The result? Red, irritated-looking skin that is susceptible to premature aging.
Your skin needs help more than ever in the summer. To empower your skin against UV damage, use the Senté Dermal Repair Cream. Formulated with our patented heparan sulfate analog (HSA) technology, this revolutionary solution bolsters your skin’s defenses to help decrease inflammation. Use this essential skincare product to maintain healthy summer skin.
Dermal Repair Body Cream
Skin gets oilier in the summer. But this doesn’t mean you can ditch the moisturizer. Your skin can be oily and dehydrated at the same time. Sun-induced barrier damage and higher temperatures promote water loss from the skin. This dehydrates your skin, making it more likely to crack. These cracks lead to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
You must include moisturizing and nourishing skincare products in your summer skincare routine. Skin that has been exposed to the sun needs restoration and hydration. Our nourishing Dermal Repair Body Cream contains our patented skincare technology to help hydrate, protect, and brighten your skin.
Illuminé Eye Cream
Most people wouldn't think of eye creams as summer essential skincare products. The eye area, however, needs pampering in summer more than any other time of the year. The eye contour is made up of the thinnest layer of skin on your body. Due to its fragility, it is less able to withstand summer’s harsh UV rays. As a result, it breaks down faster than skin elsewhere on the body.
If you don’t use eye cream, you must get one for the summer. And what better product to use than the Senté Illuminé Eye Cream. This proprietary formulation is made with our patented HSA technology and niacinamide to strengthen under-eye skin. One clinical study showed that our eye cream reduced the appearance of fine lines and discoloration around the eyes after only four weeks of use.
Neck Firming Cream
When it comes to nourishing skincare regimens, most of us neglect to care for the skin on our necks. Like the eye contour, the neck and decollete area also have thin skin. Because they have less structural support, neck and chest skin are easily damaged by summer’s intense UV light. This is one reason why neck skin is among the first places to show signs of aging.
A quality neck cream is another essential skincare product you should add to your summer skincare routine. A good neck cream can help your skin fight damage and improve its integrity. Senté Neck Firming Cream is formulated with vitamin C and HSA. As vitamin C combats free radical damage from the sun, HSA helps your skin rebuild. This results in a powerful anti-aging effect.
Invisible Shield Sunscreen
You thought we forgot about sunscreen, didn’t you? We saved the most important product for last! No matter what your skin type, everyone needs sunscreen in their summer skincare routine. The sun’s UV radiation peaks in the summer. If you don’t protect your skin, these harmful rays can cause hyperpigmentation, deep structural damage, and skin cancer.
Sunscreen is an essential skincare product not just for summer but every day of the year. While you can get away with SPF 30 at other times of the year, you must use an SPF of 45+ during the summer. Senté sunscreens come in SPF 49 and 52. Our 100% mineral sunblocks provide an invisible, broad-spectrum shield over your skin without causing irritation or health issues.
