Self-Care is Caring for the Planet

How can you be the brightest light in somebody else’s life if you’re not feeling cared for yourself? But if we’re always putting just ourselves first, how can we also focus on caring for the community around us? If we’re only giving back to our individual selves, what damage are we creating to our environment along the way? What are we depleting for our own self-benefit?

How to Choose the Right Exfoliator

Meet The Muse: Yerba Mate

The latest super tea to join the YTTP lineup is yerba mate, a tea with a history of both energizing and unifying a community. Yerba mate brings a wallop of energy, a dose of euphoria, and mega antioxidants—it has more natural caffeine than even coffee. 

Q: What Does Caffeine Do for Skin?

Yerba mate is amazing; the tea made of its dried leaves and twigs has one of the highest antioxidant counts found in ingestible teas, and it also has the highest amount of caffeine. Caffeine itself is an antioxidant, and as we know, it is also a powerful stimulant. So what does caffeine do for skin?

Do You Need a Physical Exfoliator?

Leaving the natural buildup of dead cells, excess oil, and debris on your complexion for too long can potentially clog pores, lead to breakouts down the road, and make skin appear dry and dull. This is where exfoliation comes in, and why it is an essential component of any proper skincare routine, regardless of skin type. 

Everything You Need for Optimal Skin Health

We do a lot for our skin. Some days require more or less care than others thanks to environmental or other external factors, and we should always remember to stay hydrated (filling your reusable water bottles, of course), aim for a healthful diet (key healthy fats like omega 3s and reducing dairy and refined sugars will make a great difference in your skin,) and stay active. But when it comes down to it, there are five topical essential steps that support optimal skin health: a pH balanced cleanser, antioxidants, formulas that support skin cell turnover, strengthen your skin’s moisture barrier, and of course, sun protection. Read on.

Q: What Are the Best Ingredients for Calming Stressed Out Skin?

Question: What are the best ingredients for calming stressed out skin?

A: When conducting research on the symptoms of stressed-out skin, formulators tend to focus on the appearance of stress. Symptomatically, stress can look like redness, dullness, fatigue, or uneven tone, but stress can also manifest as feelings of sensitivity and irritation. Sensitivity can happen due to myriad reasons, such as environmental stress, or using highly active cosmeceuticals, like retinoids or vitamin C. Regardless of the reasons why your skin is stressed, it’s important to find out what can help skin destress, and there are a lot of amazing ingredients for this.

It’s Winter and You Need Major Hydration—Now What?

According to Youth To The People’s Product Innovation Manager, Mercedes Taylor, our bodies go through a process of dehydration called transepidermal water loss (or TEWL). It happens year-round, but some environmental factors can make it worse, like vacationing in Palm Springs or cranking up the heat on high mid-winter.  But it doesn’t have to be this way—one key element for preparing your skin to face the harsh winter months is a rich, nourishing moisturizer
