Yummy Youth | Shiv's Serum, made by Tash

Updated: Dec 15, 2021

Aimed towards adults, both men and women that wish to slow down the ageing process, reduce the effects of sun damage, reduce wrinkles and basically just want incredible skin. Its anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant & antibacterial properties make this the most glorious serum and won't break the bank.

As is the case for most of us, the last couple of years has been a shit-show and I would not have survived it all if it had not been for all my incredible friends and family. One such incredible friend is Shiv (love you to bits) and I called this serum after her for the following reasons:

  • This serum is clever AF (like her) with its combination of ingredients that work together to make your skin glow.

  • It's also rejuvenating, much like spending time with Shiv.

  • Your skin will be absolutely gorgeous after using this serum, just like Shiv.

Her mum has also been amazing to me and as luck would have it, her second name is Siobhan too, so a double whammy of thank yous. Speaking of thank yous, you'll be thanking me when you start adding this anti-ageing serum to your daily skincare routine.

Thankfully a lot of people use serums, but if I ask most of my friends, they are not 100% sure why. So let me enlighten you. Serum is a product that you apply to your skin after your toner but before your moisturiser with the aim of delivering powerful ingredients directly into your skin. Serums are made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. You get two types of serums, water-based and oil-based serums. Water-based serums (like Shiv's Serum) are super important as they nourish the inner layer of your skin. Oil-based serums have a bigger molecule and they're supposed to keep the moisturiser, well moist, during the entire day.

List of ingredients >>

  • Rose Water

  • Distilled Water

  • Aloe Vera Liquid Gel

  • Vitamin C Powder (Ascorbic Acid)

Benefits >>

Rose Water 101 >

  • Anti-ageing & rich in vitamin C.

  • Anti-inflammatory & antibacterial properties help reduce skin redness, prevent additional swelling & soothe the discomfort of acne.

  • Helps maintain the skin's pH balance.

  • Controls excess oil & helps to heal scars, cuts & wounds.

  • Aids in removing oil & dirt accumulated in clogged pores.

  • The antioxidant properties help to strengthen skin cells & regenerate skin tissues.

Aloe Vera Liquid Gel 101 >

  • Contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A & C.

  • Anti-inflammatory.

  • Fights acne.

  • Anti-ageing.

  • Reduces scars & blemishes.

Vitamin C Powder 101 >

  • The powder I use in my serum is made from pure & certified raw materials.

  • Anti-ageing.

  • One of the very few ingredients that have been scientifically proven to repair sun damage & to build collagen. Collagen is the substance in our skin that declines as we get older causing those nasty wrinkles.

What else you need to know about Vitamin C >>

  • Vitamin C breaks down very quickly when exposed to natural light rendering it ineffective. (As a side note, if any of your serums or lotions have turned yellow, throw them away.)

  • Most products that you buy will have about a 3-year shelf-life, so you have no way of knowing how many months or years that product has been sitting on the shelf when you buy it. And this is why I love my homemade all-natural Yummy Youth Shiv's Serum because it's fresh, it's potent and it's a hell of a lot cheaper (and still as effective). The serum is packaged in an opaque bottle because, as previously mentioned, Vitamin C is very light-sensitive.

How to use >>

  1. Shake before use.

  2. Apply after your toner.

  3. Place about half a tsp worth in your palm.

  4. Rub onto your face, neck & chest.

  5. Use after your toner morning & night.

  6. Follow with your moisturiser.

DO NOT LEAVE IN THE SUN. It will break down the Vitamin C, rendering it ineffective.
