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 Are Enzymes + What Do They Do?

Enzymes act as catalysts to bring about complex biochemical reactions. But not all enzymes are the same—some go to work for our skin, others for our gut, for food, and so on. 

How Do I Use the Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial?

Facials are often a luxury. They take time, a visit to the esthetician—and it used to be that a facial or dermatologist office was the only chance you’d have for a proper microdermabrasion exfoliation. That is until Youth To The People’s Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial stepped on the scene. Meet your new two-minute, at-home facial designed to give you a pro-grade treatment in the comfort of your home.

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. 

How the Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial Works in Just Two Minutes

Two minutes might not seem long on a clock, but it's all you need to give your skin the boost it needs. The new Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial wields the power of the ancient South American plant, yerba mate, to alleviate flaky, dull, and generally lackluster complexions. Alongside active enzymes sourced from tropical fruits and physical micro-exfoliants, this just-launched product works to sweep away dull skin and reveal a buttery-soft canvas.

What Are the Benefits of Lactic Acid for Skin?

Cleopatra was said to have bathed in milk—she and her famously smooth skin had a routine were lightyears ahead of her time, indulging in the many benefits of lactic acid for skin, which we know can be found in milk, or be 100% vegan and derived from corn sugar, like in the Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner

How to Get Rid of Dark Spots

SPF protection is foremost—but when it comes to getting rid of dark spots, brightening ingredients are key.
