Introducing YEOUTH's Hyaluronic Acid Cream
At YEOUTH, we understand that skin moisture is a very important necessity to the prevention of skin aging. Given the important role that hyaluronic acid plays in maintaining the moisture of the skin, as well as the perfect compatibility that it has on our skin (AKA no harmful side effects or adverse reactions), we have created a cream that features hyaluronic acid as the key ingredient, with the main purpose of fighting away the early signs of facial skin aging.
It seems like everyone is having a serious love affair with hyaluronic acid - and with good reason. Hyaluronic acid is one of those ingredients that is neither new nor undeserved. It’s one of those rare ingredients whose popularity is well-earned due to its exceptional anti-aging and youth enhancing properties.

YEOUTH's new Hyaluronic Acid Cream is so unique in its formulation, that it uses other key ingredients like Tripeptide 31, Ferulic Acid, Shea Butter, and Vitamins C and E – as well as other ingredients that are hard to find in other beauty and skincare products.

All these natural ingredients are made to work synergistically to promote optimal moisture to the skin, thus producing lasting anti-aging results. Plus, the unique combination of these ingredients doesn’t only help lock in moisture, but it also stimulates the production of new collagen, making the skin less susceptible to stress. With this cream, you can finally say goodbye to wrinkled skin, and instead say hello to healthy, hydrated skin and beautifully tight facial skin pores.

Here’s a breakdown of the active ingredients in YEOUTH’s Hyaluronic Acid Cream: 
  • Hyaluronic Acid - Oh, what more can we say about the beauty wonder that is Hyaluronic Acid! This is your skin’s absolute hydration best friend. This fantastic hydrator can alleviate skin dryness and promote skin-deep healing.
  • Ferulic Acid - As a stand-alone ingredient, ferulic acid has been found to have potent antioxidant benefits on the skin. Taking it a step further, mixing it up with the rest of YEOUTH’s ingredients in its HA cream formulation brings us an amazing antioxidant that wards off free radicals, works as an effective protector against UV rays, and maximizes the benefits and full effectiveness of Vitamin C to the skin by stabilizing it and extending its life.
  • Vitamin C - Vitamin C shields the skin from free radicals and also helps reduce hyperpigmentation.
  • Vitamin E - Vitamin E nourishes the skin by helping it retain its natural moisturizers. Plus, here’s a fun fact about Vitamin C and Vitamin E – they actually work together to boost each other’s antioxidant effects.
Yes, hyaluronic acid is one of the superstars in the skincare world, and you may be familiar with it; but are you aware of the science behind this one-of-a-kind skincare ingredient? How does it work to give you supple, younger, and healthier skin? The answer is pretty amazing.

How Does Hyaluronic Acid Work?

First of all, hyaluronic acid, although an acid in itself, is not like the other acids like salicylic or glycolic which work as an exfoliant, peeling away dead skin cells. Nope, hyaluronic acid doesn’t do that.

Hyaluronic acid is actually naturally found in the body unlike salicylic acid or glycolic acid. A large percentage of the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid is found in the body’s skin tissues serving to keep it moisturized, and at its best appearance; and a smaller but still significant percentage is found in between the body’s joints, serving as a lubricant and cushion. A little bit of it can also be found in the fluids of the eye, as well in the body’s connective tissues.

Because almost 50% of hyaluronic acid is found on the skin, most of its effect is evidently seen on the skin. Because of hyaluronic acid, we are able to keep our skin firm yet soft, as well as plump and supple. However, the body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases as we age, which eventually leads to fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and fine lines on the skin, especially on the face.

This is exactly why we need a regular supply of hyaluronic acid.

The magic of this exceptional ingredient is seen in its power to retain in moisture – A LOT of moisture. In fact, just one gram of this acid can actually hold six liters of water.

Okay, I’m going to give you some time to wrap your mind around that wonderful fact for a moment.

This unique attribute of hyaluronic acid is significant in combating the early signs of skin aging. The ability to maintain youthful skin has to do with its capability to retain water (specifically, moisture). Without a good supply of moisture on the skin, the skin can lose is suppleness, firmness. So you see, hyaluronic acid serves as your skin’s superhero – it rescues your skin by boosting your skin’s moisture content, which leads to plump, youthful, and rejuvenated skin.

Hold up, there’s more. The benefits of this wonder ingredient don’t stop there. There is more to hyaluronic acid than just being able to give you a youthful, radiant, hydrated appearance.

Let’s dig deeper, shall we?



Other Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Just about everything in the environment can pose hazards to the skin – unprotected sun exposure, skin exposure to harsh ingredients in our skincare products, and a whole lot more – thus causing the skin to get weak. Hyaluronic acid’s ability to replenish nutrients and strengthen the skin allows your skin to go through your everyday with absolute protection.
Hyaluronic acid isn’t just for one specific kind of skin type. Hyaluronic acid is absolutely lightweight and comes in fluid form, making it perfect even for oily skin types. It has a high concentration of moisturizing properties, making it ideal for those with dry skin. It is also incredibly gentle – besides, it’s naturally found on the skin – making it absolutely great even for the most sensitive of all skin types.
With research, we have discovered that hyaluronic acid actually also serves as an antioxidant. That’s right! We ourselves, were surprised by these findings as well. But, there’s no doubt that hyaluronic acid also provides a strong antioxidant defense against environmental hazards and assaults against the skin.
Now that's one amazing multitasking anti-aging ingredient!
It’s About Time You Added HA to Your Skincare Regimen



The easiest way to restore your levels of hyaluronic acid is by using a moisturizer that contains it, or even by simply using it as a stand-alone product. By using an HA cream, over time, you’ll notice that your skin has a more plump texture and does not feel so dried out. When you use a lotion, cream or serum with hyaluronic acid it helps to draw hydration and keep hydration in your skin which prevents your skin from looking so tight and dried out.

Anyone with any skin type can use Hyaluronic Acid products. In fact, it is highly recommended that you do! Start checking for products that contain either Hyaluronic Acid or Sodium Hyaluronate. Adding these products to your routine can create some amazing results that will have you wondering why you didn’t know of this magical ingredient sooner!
Every skin type can benefit from HA, even those with eczema. The consistency as very watery so even those with oily or acne prone skin can benefit from its light finish. You can wear HA alone or underneath your moisturizer and makeup. After washing your face, simply apply it onto your damp skin before your moisturizer or use it alone as your moisturizer and continue with your skin care routine as normal.
HA can be applied morning and night, but we recommend that you start by patch testing first and then using it once per day or every other day until you know how your skin reacts to it. You only need a really thin layer and follow that up with your moisturizer.
Now that you know how hyaluronic acid benefit skin, you might be wondering what products contain these gifted ingredients. As you probably already guessed, at YEOUTH we use Hyaluronic acid frequently in our formulations.

Say Goodbye to Fine Lines with These Top 5 Tips

Posted on June 02, 2016 by Jane Young | 0 comments

Did you know that some of your habits are causing fine lines to appear?

A lot of wrinkles are caused by the sun, and a smaller portion is actually caused by aging skin. However, bad habits can lead to pre-mature sin aging.
It is common knowledge that sun protection is one of the best ways you can avoid wrinkles and fine lines. The damaging UV rays break down the skin's structure like your elastin, collagen, and the epidermis - the skin's top most layer. Genetically, some people are more prone to UV damage than others, and this is not just because of the amount of baseline skin pigment or ethnicity. With UV exposure, there is actually a variation with how much structural damage occurs within a given skin ethnic type.

Here's a good example. Check the difference between wrinkles from age and wrinkles caused by the sun. Look at the skin of the outer surface of your arm and compare it to the under-surface, which is sun protected. Likewise, the skin on your breast is normally sun protected compared to the V of your chest. See the difference in those areas?

So, what other habits can give you fine lines and wrinkles?

1. Squinting in the sun will cause a furrow between your crow's feet and brow lines.

2. Smoking causes more facial wrinkles to appear. Smoker's lines around the mouth are caused by taking drags on cigarettes for an extended period of time.

3. Repeated dominant facial expressions will cause wrinkles over time - let them be smile lines or frown lines. 

4. Not exfoliating or using a good moisturizer will cause fine lines. These lines can be reversed with regular use of a good moisturizer and proper exfoliation of the dead cells off your skin's surface. Stay tuned for new YEOUTH exfoliators coming soon. :)

5. Sleeping on your side can cause unnecessary wrinkling between your breasts in time.

If you want to ditch fine lines, follow these simple tips.

1. Cover up! If the sun is shining outside, it's best to wear a sun protection hat. Not just any hat - it should provide enough protection to shield your face and neck.

2. Wear sunscreen daily.  Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion gives a great matte finish that's water resistant and SPF 70. It is barely visible on the skin and shouldn't sting the eyes or aggravate acne. Perfect under makeup or over your other skin products. Get it here.

3. Combat wrinkles and fine lines with a good, reliable moisturizer. YEOUTH's L22 Anti-aging moisturizer has L22 lipid complex that has been proven to aid in barrier repair and skin hydration. It has Shea Butter, Jojoba and Macadamia seed oil that works to hydrate, firm, and fill wrinkles. Get it here.

4. Use a nice facial exfoliation scrub. If you'd like to make your own organic concoction, check this out. If you prefer the store-bought kind, First Botany Cosmeceuticals Natural Arabica Coffee Scrub is known for its results and affordable price. It is rich in antioxidants which fights premature skin aging sun spots, like wrinkles, wrinkles, and fine lines and has cacao, coconut essence, and Shea butter to moisturize skin. Get it here.

Yeouth's Insider Tips: Skin Care During Menopause

Posted on May 31, 2016 by Jane Young | 0 comments

For younger folks, menopause may seem like a time to rejoice - it ends a lot of monthly concerns that women face on a monthly basis, after all. Think cramps, PMS, tampons, and pre-period breakouts!

Newsflash: all these woes are merely replaced by others.

For a lot of women, menopause is no walk in the park. Night sweats, crawling sensations on the skin, hot flashes, dryness, dry and oily skin, acne, and unwanted hair loss can throw anyone off-balance when menopause strikes.

To add salt to an open wound, skin issues caused by wrong lifestyle choices, sun damage, genetics, and menopause just compound the problem. Skin starts to sag, becomes thinner, and is not as elastic as before. Many women find that their skin condition takes a nosedive almost overnight. Maybe PMS and those tampons aren't so horrible after all.

Menopause Changes Skin

During menopause, the skin loses a lot of its elasticity, resulting into a thinner, more fragile skin. Early intervention is therefore essential.

Start protecting your skin now, regardless of your age.

To keep skin supple and hydrated, use ingredients that stops some of the collagen loss and encourages skin renewal and repair. To fight the skin changes during menopause, look for products that combine the best ingredients and really does the job, like:

1. Hyaluronic acid (found in YEOUTH's Hyaluronic Acid Serum) - nourishes your skin with spring water-like hydration, keeping skin plump and smooth through its ability to bind and hold moisture in the skin's cells.
2. Antioxidants (found in YEOUTH's Vitamin C Serum) -  a nutrient that is vital to skin health, Vitamin C effectively protects the skin from free radicals, reviving aged and sun-damaged skin.
3. L22 Lipid Complex (found in YEOUTH's Anti-Aging Moisturizer) - proven in clinical trials to improve skin hydration and barrier repair
4. Tripeptide 31 (found in YEOUTH's Hyaluronic Acid Serum) - mimics the anti-aging properties of Retinoic Acid without the prescription or painful side effects. It is a safe alternative and provides excellent anti-aging benefits.

It's an all-out assault against menopausal and age-related skin concerns.. and time is of the essence!
