But wait—doesn't turmeric stain?
You’ve probably heard that turmeric stains. And yes—if you covered your face solely with turmeric from your pantry, it would. That’s why we’ve formulated YLLO with just the right amount of turmeric—enough to treat your skin to all its amazing benefits, but not enough that you'll be forced to head out into the world looking all yellow-ish.
We use amazing organic turmeric, meaning it doesn't contain any added dyes. Our other ingredients work together to counteract turmeric’s natural staining properties, giving you a no-hassle rinse. Fairer skin? Our scrubs may leave you slightly yellow for a couple hours, so try to use in the evenings (don’t worry, it’s not permanent!).
Although YLLO will never permanently stain your skin, it will leave colour on your towels and clothes. Just use common sense here. Remember to rinse thoroughly before drying and always use a dark towel just in case (or paper towel if you own expensive towels).
Got some yellow left after your initial rinse?
If you have trouble removing all colour with water alone, you can finish up your routine with some coconut oil, castor oil, or your favourite cleanser.
Worried about your white sink or shower?
As long as you are sure to rinse your sink and shower right away with hot water, all colour will wash away. Just don't let it sit there. If you forget to rinse and some yellow is left over, you can use a combo of baking soda and lemon juice to help lift the stain.
Got a fresh mani?
Nails can react a bit differently with turmeric, so if you've just got a nice mani, try applying our scrub with a brush instead. If your fingernails become yellow from applying any of our face products, you can easily remove the colour with a mixture of baking soda and lemon juice.
Store your YLLO products in a dry place at room temperature. Our Turmeric Face Scrub in particular, if left in a cold environment, its coconut oil may harden a little. Don't worry though—if any hardening does happen, it doesn't mean YLLO is any less effective. Just massage the scrub apart with your fingers or crush with a spoon before you mix in your liquid. Our Turmeric Face Elixir should never be stored in direct or indirect sunlight.
How often should I use YLLO?
We recommend using our Turmeric Face Scrub and Turmeric Face Mask 2-3 times a week—but try and resist using them two days in a row. Our Turmeric Face Elixir is gentle enough to use every night before moisturizing.
You're pregnant. First off—congrats! But can you use YLLO?
The nice thing about YLLO is that it's 100% natural and free of preservatives, parabens, or other nasty chemicals. However, with a baby on the way, we always recommend you consult your doctor before introducing anything new to your skin regime.
