Yeouth Skincare Review

Yeouth Skincare Review

Hi everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute since I updated my blog with something that isn’t WOC In PT related, but I am here and feeling more inspired than ever! A huge reason for this is because of my recent trip to London, but more on that in upcoming posts! You’ve probably guessed from the title already, but I want to tell you all about the new serums I have been using for the last 3 months.

The consistency of the serum in the purple bottle is a lot thicker than the one in the orange bottle and almost applies as a lotion. Almost. It feels like a lotion at first, but as you work it into the skin, it lightens up and is absorbed. It leaves the skin with a slightly tacky feeling which is primer-like. What I love about this serum is that it leaves my skin feeling suuuper hydrated, and that is mostly due to it containing Hyaluronic acid. For those of you that are new to skincare, Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that draws in water, retaining moisture.

Since April, I have been using the Hyaluronic Acid Cream with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid, Tripeptide 31 (bottle with the purple sticker) and the Vitamin C and E Day Serum with Hyaluronic Acid (bottle with the orange sticker). I have been using the serum in the purple bottle at night, applying it to the skin after toner. For the orange bottle, I have been applying that serum in the morning, also after I put on toner.

Aside from the most obvious change in my skin tone in the before and after pictures - I tan really easily ok?!- my hyperpigmentation from my acne breakouts have faded considerably since using the Yeouth skincare serums.

Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition where portions of skin become darker than its surrounding areas. This is mostly harmless and can easily be treated. Hyperpigmentation often results from UV sun damage, heat and hormonal outbreaks and over-irritiation from chemical peels. The melanocytes of the skin are cells that produce pigment (melanin). So in the event of damage, these cells will produce more melanin to protect the skin. And bam! You get uneven amounts of melanin distributed in different areas of the skin and you have hyperpigmentation! But do not fear my friends, it’s nothing that consistent skincare and daily application of sunscreen can’t fix, ya feel me?

A common fix for this issue, is Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that play in important role in fighting hyperpigmentation and also has anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Vitamin C inhibits the enzyme, tyrosinase, which in turn lessens melanin production!

So there you have it folks! The tea has been spilled on how I was able to fade my post acne breakout spots and it truly all because of the Yeouth skincare serums and putting facial sunscreen on everyday.
