Makeup, Meet Superfoods

Superfood Cleanser, Air-Whip Moisture Cream, and Unity Exfoliant tips and tricks from the pros.  

There are multiple different reasons to love Youth To The People’s Superfood. To name just a few: the products are packed with soothing antioxidant-rich ingredients and the formulas feel incredible on the skin. It’s no wonder the best-selling Superfood Cleanser, Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream, and Mandelic Acid + Superfood Unity Exfoliant are such a hit with consumers and pros alike. This includes makeup artists and YTTP education experts, by the way, who use the fan-favorite formulas for themselves and their clients, everything from priming to conditioning their eye shadow brushes. (Yes, really.) Read on for some must-try tips.

Superfood Cleanser = Excellent Brush Conditioner

Superfood Cleanser is both super-gentle and non-stripping on synthetic and natural brush hairs. As Alysia Torres, Regional Sales + Education Executive for YTTP explains: 

“I use my Superfood Cleanser to remove makeup from my face, so why wouldn’t I use it to remove make-up from my brushes? About every two weeks I use about one pump of cleanser to wash my eyeshadow brushes—it leaves them feeling super soft and fluffy,” she says. For this, Torres simply pumps a quarter-sized amount of cleanser into the palm of her hand, mixes in a little water, and swishes two or three brushes at a time through the sudsy solution. She then lays them out flat to dry overnight, and it’s as easy as that. Just remember also to sanitize your brushes regularly.

Superfood Cleanser = Stubborn Makeup Remover

The amazing thing about Superfood Cleanser is it’s both powerful and gentle at the same time. Just a couple of pumps of the pH-balanced formula can easily break down a full face of makeup, yet leaves skin soft, supple, and primed for the next steps, afterward. Additionally, it’s great for those hard-to-remove spots where makeup has a tendency to linger—like along your hairline. 

“My favorite hack for the Superfood Cleanser is to use it to cleanse along the hairline in the shower to remove any residual makeup that might be building up and causing those hairline breakouts,” explains Regional Sales + Education Executive Su Lee. “It’s not often talked about but all that contour and bronzer, along with various hair products, can linger around the hairline and often get forgotten about in the cleansing routine.” 

Superfood Air-Whip Cream = Amazing Makeup Primer

That’s right,  you can forgo makeup primer from now on seeing as Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream has you covered in this category. 

“I’ve been using Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream as my AM moisturizer and makeup primer for years!” raves Torres. “The cream leaves my skin so hydrated, but it’s also lightweight and never greasy, so applying my full coverage foundation on right after makes it an absolute dream.”  

Additionally, if your skin is on the drier side, Regional Sales + Education Executive Alyssa Jenkins suggests adding a drop or two of Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Oil to Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream for extra hydration. 

“These two mixed leave my skin plump, hydrated, and radiant without feeling sticky,” she says. “Makeup glides on top effortlessly and my skin is glowy all day.” 

Unity Exfoliant = Ultimate Skin-Smoother 

Want another makeup prep tip? Look no further than the Mandelic Acid + Superfood Unity Exfoliant, YTTP’s gentle liquid exfoliator that clears pores, smooths texture, evens tone, and supports the skin’s moisture barrier. 

“I’m obsessed with the results of the Unity Exfoliant,” says Regional Sales + Education Executive Meg Martin. “Hello clean pores, I love you!”
