We have put together information to help you choose a Yeouth complete skincare routine, or so that you may custom-choose your own products based on your specific needs and what works best for you!

Your daily essentials

The following information contains key details on how each Yeouth product works, when’s the best time to apply them, what it does for your skin, and what results you can expect from each. With a complete beauty routine, some experimentation may be needed so you may find which method works best. Don’t worry, we’ll help you cut through the confusion and make sense of this!

1. Cleanser (Step 1)

What it does:

Rinsing your face is NOT washing. Choose a product that is gentle. A good cleanser will remove oil, debris, and makeup. Daytime cleansing, most especially is important. Our skin recovers overnight. This means that in the morning, excess emulsified sebum is present, and your skin will have more dead skin cells to slough off. This can’t be rinsed away with just water. You need a proper cleanser.

Why do you need it?

Washing your face with water alone is not sufficient to clean your face. Regular skin cleansing is essential to maintaining healthy skin. Our skin gets subjected to a lot of damaging factors like pollution and other irritants. daily washing will remove all the bacteria, viruses, pollutants, dead and old skin cells, and dirt. Cleansing also helps manage your skin’s PH levels, helping the skin maintain a good level of hydration. Furthermore, a clean face will allow products you use to work even better. Do this at least 2-3 times daily.

What can I expect?

With regular face washing, your skin will look and feel smoother, healthier, and ready to receive prime benefits from your facial regimen. Our skin ages daily, and the very simple act of facial washing is a wonderful way to mitigate the external factors linked to aging and stimulate the internal processes that combat aging. In addition, regular facial washing will help get rid of impurities to give your skin a fresh and radiant look. We don’t want our skin to be covered with a thick layer of dirt and grime, don’t we?

Why you Have Dry Skin and How to Correct It

Posted on August 17, 2016 by Jane Young | 0 comments


Do you have dry skin? You might find this surprising, but dry skin is not just simply because of lack of moisture.

Here are some quick facts about dry skin:

  • Our skin produces less oil as we age thus causing dry skin.
  • Some people are born with a dry skin type it. Usually, these are people with a family history of eczema or asthma.
  • Constant exposure to harsh and irritating products like solvents or soaps will strip the skin of its natural oils.
  • Being in dry and harsh climates with relatively low humidity pulls out the water from the skin causing it to become dry or chapped.

Dry skin is usually equated with a skin that has an impaired skin barrier. Such an impairment makes the skin vulnerable, such that the outer layers of your skin loses its ability to repair itself. As a result, it will have a hard time securing the moisture within your skin. An impaired skin barrier also results to a highly penetrable skin – which means that sun’s UV rays and other environmental stressors, as well as harsh soaps and other dehydrating ingredients from skincare products, can seep into your skin, thus stealing the intrinsic moisture that it has from the skin’s natural oils.

The important thing to be able to regain your skin’s optimum moisture levels is to let your skin heal. Correct skin care as well as the use of skin care products with reparative effects should be a priority. 

Effective solutions

So what can we do?
The very first thing on the Skin Repair Intervention List is to stop exposing the skin to situations that decrease its water and oil content, and at the same time, apply products that promote the healing and repair of the skin’s barriers. With this, you will be sure to keep your skin young as it is ale to effectively maintain a healthy moisture content.

And so, be sure to avoid the following:

1. Exposure to bar soaps
2. Use of loofahs and other abrasive scrubs
3. Harsh cleaning ingredients
4. Rinsing of the face with hot water (instead, use cool water)
5.  Skincare products with dehydrating effects like menthol, eucalyptus, alcohol

So what can you do instead?

1. Minimize sun exposure, as well as exposure to harsh skin substances.

2. Never (ever) go out without any sunscreen. Remember, skin damage from sun exposure is the number one culprit for your skin’s inability to hold moisture.

3. Use only good-quality moisturizers. It’s best to choose moisturizers with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory ingredients, and skin-reparing agents, like L-22 Lipid Complex. This way, you can be sure to increase your skin’s protection and strengthen your skin’s barrier.

4. Exfoliate! Next to applying sunscreen, this is another beauty habit that you need to regularly perform. Exfoliation, or skin cell turnover, is naturally done by healthy skin, but if your skin is dry and sun-damaged, your skin will need a bit of help in doing it.

A good beta hydroxy acid (BHA) or alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) product can help with this process by removing the build-up of dead skin cells and replacing them with smoother, newer ones. To learn how to properly in exfoliate skin, check out YEOUTH's latest blog post.

5. If you have extremely dry skin, some plant oils will help, like olive oil or jojoba seed oil.

6. A humidifier in your home or in your bedroom can make a whole world of difference! A humidifier can boost the relative humidity in the air that you expose your skin to.

7. Use cook, lukewarm, or warm water when bathing – never hot water! Hot water increases skin inflammation and removes skin oils.

8. Do not ever use products that have irritating or drying ingredients. But well, you already know that one, right?

Applying products that hold skin moisture


To keep your skin moisturized, go for products that include a moisture-binding and moisture-trapping set of ingredients. Our personal favorites include:
1. Hyaluronic acid – Did you know that this super ingredient has the ability to hold water up to 1,000 times its weight? Naturally produced by the body (making it 100% non-toxic), this element serves to increase your skin’s moisture content, and at the same time strengthen your skin’s barriers and keep the moisture from seeping out. However, our ability to produce hyaluronic acid declines as we age,
therefore, a steady supply of hyaluronic acid content on the skin is essential.

2. Glycerin  - This is another very powerful element that significantly retains moisture. Glycerin does this by absorbing water from the air, thus bringing more moisture to your skin. In fact, the absorption ability of glycerin is so high that if you leave a bottle of it exposed to the air, it would eventually change its composition from 100% glycerine to 80% glycerin and 20% water.

3. Oils – Botanical oils are packed with healing properties, making them do moisturizing wonders to your skin. At YEOUTH, the ones we like best are:

  • Shea Butter – Shea Butter contains high concentrations of natural vitamins and fatty acids that protect the skin’s natural oils, and provide additional nourishment and moisture.
  • Olive Oil – Practically everyone has been giving this oil a big thumbs up because of its beauty benefits. While it is true that olive oils are mostly found in kitchen cupboards, they ought to earn a place in our beauty dressers – olive oils have actually been used on the body for its moisturizing properties since the ancient times. Olive oil has antioxidants that prevent the premature signs of aging, making it superb especially for dry and stressed skin.
  • Coconut oil - Coconut oil is also able to retain moisture in the skin. Plus, it is rich in protein, thus able to keep the skin young-looking, rejuvenated, and healthy.
Does your skin really need hyaluronic acid?
Maybe more people are familiar with the use of essential oils and glycerin in providing moisture to the skin.This is why this is a perfectly valid question to ask. Indeed, what is all the fuzz with hyaluronic acid? Why is it the hottest skincare ingredient today, and how well does it work as a wrinkle-plumper and moisturizer?
First of all, hyaluronic acid is not an acid in the same sense as the popular ones like salicylic or glycolic acid. The latter are chemical peels that exfoliate dead skin cells.
Hyaluronic acid doesn't do that at all.

Hyaluronic acid is actually a naturally-occuring nutrient found in the human body. A high percentage of it is found in our joints, nerves, eyes, and hair, acting as a lubricant.
A huge percentage of it – about 50% -- is found on the skin, leaving it moisturized and supple. However, our body’s natural ability to produce the wonderful element that is hyaluronic acid tends to decrease as we age, thus leading to increased dryness, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging on the skin.
Do you see now why skin care products seem to be equipped with the staple ingredient that is hyaluronic acid?

YEOUTH's Hyaluronic Acid Serum is infused with antioxidant-rich Vitamin C and Tripeptide 31, a vital amino acid that works to boost the production of collagen cells, reversing skin damage. For more information, click here.
