How to safely use our 0.25% Encapsulated Retinol Serum over Summer
As the sun-kissed days of summer approach, it's time to reassess our skincare routine and ensure we're giving our skin the care it needs. Before diving into the summer benefits, let's briefly understand why encapsulated retinol is a standout ingredient. Traditional retinol formulations can be unstable and potentially cause irritation and to lose effectiveness over time. Saint Louve's encapsulated retinol, however, is designed to maintain its stability, ensuring maximum potency and efficiency.
It is well known that retinol and UV rays are not combatable. This powerful antiaging antioxidant breaks down in sunlight. Also, our skin becomes more sensitive to UV rays when using retinol. Therefore, we have some guidelines on how to safely embrace the warmer months without compromising on your skincare routine.
Why Retinol in the Summer?
Despite our best efforts, sun exposure is inevitable, especiallyduring the summer months. Saint Louve's 0.25% Encapsulated Retinol Serum helps combat sun damage by promoting skin cell turnover. This process sheds damaged skin cells, revealing a fresh and rejuvenated complexion. This is crucial in reducing the appearance of sunspots and hyperpigmentation caused by UV exposure.
Tips for Using Saint Louve's Encapsulated Retinol Serum in Summer:
Apply in the Evening: While retinol is unstable when exposed to UV rays and can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, using it in the evening minimizes this risk. Apply the serum before bedtime, allowing it to work its magic overnight.
Sunscreen is Non-Negotiable: As retinol makes our skin more sensitive and prone to sun damage you must incorporateSPF 50+ broad-spectrum sunscreen into your morning routine. This is crucial, not only for general sun protection but also to complement the use of retinol in your nighttime routine. While sunscreen is a must, minimising sun exposure, especially in the middle of the day when UV levels are highest is also vital.
Saint Louve's 0.25% Encapsulated Retinol Serum is your summer skincare ally, helping you achieve a radiant, hydrated and even complexion while addressing common summer skincare concerns. With its stability and potency, this serum is a must-have for those who want to glow all summer long.
