Upgrade Your Deodorant with Saige and Ivy

Upgrade Your Deodorant with Saige and Ivy

With illness and ultimately the death of my last grandparent, I started to review my own beauty regimens and the contents that I use on a daily basis. Switching toothpastes, deodorants, moisturizers and of course hair products. Some aren’t as easy to transition to (love my Colgate) but if my grandmother could use baking soda as a deodorant for decades, I figured I could look into a more healthy option for myself. I received Saige and Ivy in a self-care subscription box and was hooked.

Redefining Beauty with Yeouth

I’ve mentioned before, how my grandmother and mother didn’t have a lot of beauty products. They used, from what I can recall, a minimum amount of products. Although the youth gene is apparent in my family lol, we sometimes need a few on the shelf items to tame those smile lines that frame the mouth and eyes.

A product line that I came across is Yeouth. This serum is paraben, sulfate and fragrance free. On a damp face, apply less than a dime size on your finger tip and work into your face, bringing it down towards your neck. A little really does go a long way. Once your face dries, follow-up with your regular moisturizing routine. It’s a great light serum that works. After a few weeks of using Yeouth, I did notice a change in my complexion, especially around my eyes.

I can admit, at first the visual of ‘acid’ was a bit alarming to me. Was the brand advertising that acid will minimize my smile lines and aging around my eyes? Acid will allow my skin to glow without the use of makeup? Here are the benefits of each of the main ingredients that will nourish your skin.

  • Hyaluronic Acid - 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.

  • Vitamin C - a nutrient that is vital to skin health, Vitamin C effectively protects the skin from free radicals, reviving aged and sun-damaged skin.

  • Vitamin E - acting as your skin’s shield from harmful UV rays, natural Vitamin E works hard to even skin tone and build a protective barrier for  your skin.

If you look closely at the images in this post, the areas around my eyes are darker in one and lighter in another. Clearly these pictures are not edited at all. Slight amount of blush, mascara and some lipstick were used to complete my natural look for my day out with the girls. The Yeouth serum really does work well to “hydrate skin to even crevices and fill wrinkles and even skin tone and reduce age spots”.

My focus to to get rid of the old dark spots on my face. Awe man, got a new pimple!
