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.
