Signs You’re Over-Exfoliating

Over-exfoliating can actually lead to big issues like heightened sensitivity, irritation, and inflammation, so it’s super important to only do it in moderation and listen to what your skin needs.

All About Your Skin Barrier

The skin barrier refers to the outer layer of skin cells which protect you from the outside world. It’s your skin’s first and primary line of defense and it’s job is essentially to keep the bad stuff out and the good stuff in. 

The Benefits of BHA (Salicylic Acid) in Skincare

Chances are you’ve seen salicylic acid in the ingredients list for an acne product, since it’s great for busting breakouts as it penetrates the skin very deeply. Salicylic acid exfoliates by removing dead skin cells, which is why it’s often suggested for complexions that need more exfoliation as well as for treating acne and oily skin.

What You Need to Know About Cell Turnover

Simply put, cell turnover is the circle of life for your skin. Your body continually reproduces healthy new cells to replace the dead ones on the skin’s surface. But what happens to the dead ones?

The Energy Facial Transformed My Skin

The immediate effects are incredible, and I think that over time, the tone of my skin has even improved because my vitamin C serums are able to absorb even better after I exfoliate with the Energy Facial. Serums work better and makeup goes on smoother, because you’re just getting rid of that top layer of dead skin. 

How to Revive Dull Skin

Whether due to seasonal changes or external stressors, there’s a new kit—the Protect the Planet Refillable Minis Kit—that makes it easy to revive dull skin.

Physical Exfoliants That Are Safe for Your Skin and the Planet

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.

How to Accelerate Every Product in Your Routine

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.

How Dual-Action Exfoliation Improves Your Skin Health

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?

Do I Need to Cleanse Before Exfoliating?

If you’ve ever wondered what comes first, cleansing or exfoliating, know that the confusion is understandable: though the two go hand in hand, there's an order to things.

How to Choose the Right Exfoliator

Consider the following scenario: you have 30 seconds to pack your skincare essentials in a limited capacity bag for a month-long trip. In goes your daily cleanser and moisturizer, followed by eye cream and, hopefully, sunscreen. But what do you grab next? The answer is an activated, acid-based toner aimed at evening your complexion and smoothing your skin’s texture, plus a solution targeted at sloughing away dead skin cells that you can use as a more intensive exfoliation treatment a few times a week. 

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.
