What Is the Optimal Order for a Fall Skincare Routine? - Sente Labs

Fall arrives. The air turns crisp, the leaves put on a colorful show, and our skin starts sending out SOS signals. As much as we love the autumnal vibes, the change in weather can wreak havoc on our skin. 

As the leaves are changing, your skincare routine should be too. Here's your comprehensive, expert-approved guide to fall skincare.

Step 1: Start with a Gentle Cleanser

  • Why: As the air turns crisp, your skin needs a cleanser that can remove impurities without stripping it of its natural oils.
  • What you need: Daily Soothing Cleanser.

This product contains Vitamin E, a moisturizing antioxidant that will shield your skin from drying environmental conditions.

Step 2: Tone It Up

  • Why: A toner helps balance your skin's pH levels, making it more receptive to the products that follow.
  • What you need: A high-quality toner.

Picture this – you're back from a day spent in the great outdoors, and your skin feels grimy yet dry. A toner will refresh and prepare your skin for what's next. Look for one that's alcohol-free to avoid drying out your skin. Ingredients like witch hazel, rose water, or chamomile can be soothing and effective for maintaining your skin's balance during the fall season. 

Step 3: Serum Time

  • Why: Serums are like the Swiss Army knives of skincare – packed with active ingredients that target specific concerns.
  • What you need: Senté's Bio Complete Serum.

This serum is a powerhouse, featuring slow-release retinoids and a blend of antioxidants. Let's break that down.

Slow-release retinoids are a form of Vitamin A that helps improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The slow-release formula ensures that your skin gets a steady dose of this potent ingredient without causing irritation.

Included antioxidants are your skin's best friend when it comes to fighting off environmental damage. They neutralize harmful free radicals that can accelerate aging and worsen hyperpigmentation.

Finally, the inclusion of one unique ingredient – Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA), a molecule that helps improve your skin's ability to retain moisture – helps with deep hydration and supports your skin's ability to repair itself.

Step 4: Don't Forget the Eyes

  • Why: The skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate, making it prone to signs of aging.
  • What you need: Senté's Illumine Eye Cream.

This eye cream is formulated with HSA and other hydrating ingredients, targeting dark circles and puffiness. It's like giving your eyes a mini spa day, every day.

Step 5: Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

This moisturizer contains ceramides, which are lipids that help form the skin's barrier and help skin retain moisture. It's your best defense as cooler temperatures mean more time spent inside, subjected to dry heat.

Step 6: Seal the Deal with SPF

  • Why: Think you're safe from UV rays during a scenic fall drive? Think again. UV rays can penetrate car windows, leading to premature aging and lasting skin damage.
  • What you need: Senté's Even Tone Mineral Sunscreen.

This isn't your average sunscreen. It's a mineral-based formula, safe for sensitive skin and dermatologist-tested to effectively block UV rays. Plus, it's tinted to blend seamlessly into your skin, offering a natural finish for a variety of complexions. It's like a shield and a beauty product in one.

So, there you have it – a fall skincare routine that's as layered as your favorite autumn outfit. But remember, the key to great skin isn't just what you apply to it; it's also about how consistently you apply treatment.
