You’ve probably heard that you should, “love the skin you're in,” but that’s easier said than done, right? Especially with extreme temps, from dry cold winter months to sweltering summer months and everything in between. Our complexions can take a beating. Our skin needs to stay hydrated, moisturized, and protected. Sweat, oil, and Mother Nature can take a toll on complexion and can bring unwanted fine lines and wrinkles to surface.
Enter Sustainable Youth where “The Green is Inside.” Sustainable Youth is a luxury collection of skincare that uses alasta, a patent-pending anti-aging factor derived from the inside of the rind of an Aloe Vera leaf. Got your attention, eh? According to clinical trials, alasta can naturally increase skin elasticity and firmness up to 72%. And with alasta, skin is better equipped to fight inflammation and combat free radical damage and collagen fiber deprivation. Count.Me.In.
We had the privilege of testing three of the products from the Sustainable Youth line, and the results were tried and true. Each product is chock-full of rich, natural ingredients, many of which are certified organic.
Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion, 4 fl oz., $50
Either the start to a jam-packed morning or after a long hard day, we want a cleanser that will not strip skin of its natural moisture levels. The Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion is made with alasta so it penetrates deep into the skin to remove any residue or makeup from the day, ( yes, that includes waterproof mascara!). The creamy cleanser contains a rich blend of organically grown natural extracts, which include cucumber, white mulberry, green tea, licorice root and fig. The fresh fragrance left behind is heavenly.
The Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion can be used with or without water, so it’s great for the gal-on-the-go, or for getting into bed after a very long night. It has a soft, clean, hydrating, yet non-greasy, application. All that is left is skin that is silky smooth. Rich in cocoa seed butter, natural oils, and vitamins, this is the ultimate luxury in cleansers to keep skin bright, tight and even toned. A breakthrough in anti-aging skincare, this cleanser with Sustainable Youth is gentle yet effective with benefits your skin will drink in daily.
Firming & Revitalizing Serum with alasta, 1 fl oz., $110
Never overlook the middleman (or woman). After every good cleanser and before every effective cream is a must-use serum. When pores are cleansed and open, serums provide extra nutrients that prep the skin for the beneficial effects of a hydrating cream. With Sustainable Youth’s Firming & Revitalizing Serum with alasta, all skin types are better prepped to fight against environmental pollutants that can dull skin’s outer and inner appearance over time. This serum has a blend of natural white, green and Rooibos teas that work to smooth, lift and firm weathered skin. Perfect for day and night, this is the best way to prep and plan for a youthful and radiantly glowing complexion. Apply a small concentrated amount and work in an upward motion to face, neck and dec. In just eight weeks of daily usage, the (lack of) signs of aging will show for itself.
Elasticity Cream, 1 fl oz, $100
A lightweight, effective, ideal-for-all-skin-types cream that is perfect for daily use can be tricky to find. Add a chock-full of organic, cold pressed natural oils (i.e. organic virgin olive oil, pure jojoba seed oil, organic virgin coconut oil, and organic Shea butter just to name a few), and it’s nearly impossible. Unless you know about Sustainable Youth, that is. The Elasticity Cream with alasta is bursting with natural ingredients that work when applied to the face and neck. Again, with improved skin firmness up to 72% in as little as eight weeks, this cream is ideal when used as a part of your morning and evening routine. In a convenient twist pump applicator, the cool refreshing product is the perfect defense against fine lines and wrinkles.
