When we set out to formulate the Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial, we did it with our ethos in mind.

I’d previously found myself seeing “energy” as a word that represents an object, a physical thing—but not anymore.

With the launch of the Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial, we introduced a new kind of exfoliation: dual-action and triple-powered from a combination of physical and enzymatic exfoliation, boosted by caffeine from Yerba Mate. With this facial, we created something good for your skin and safe for the planet—something that wouldn’t cause microtears in your skin or create pollution in the environment.

We all dread the day when our skincare routine seems to stop working. Sorting a range of products into a well-curated routine is no small feat, and when your perfect routine stops short of the results it used to deliver, it’s disappointing, to say the least. Youth To The People’s Director of Education Laura Cline has been there, done that, and knows quite well how to accelerate every product in your routine. It takes the addition of one simple step.

Youth To The People’s newest drop, the Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial, is a dual-action microdermabrasion facial that gives you smooth, energized skin in just two minutes. You can find microdermabrasion facials at the dermatologist, or you can get that resurfaced effect right in the comfort of your own home with the Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial thanks to its dual-action exfoliation—but what exactly is dual-action exfoliation, anyway?

If you’ve been following Youth To The People for some time, you probably know we’re big fans of adaptogens—but this didn’t start with us; adaptogens have been used in Eastern medicine and Ayurveda for around 5,000 years. Chinese and Japanese medical practitioners have used reishi mushroom for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
