Keeping skin hydrated in the summertime? Sure, it sounds like a simple feat, but the reality is there are numerous factors that can hinder skin hydration during the summer months, including but not limited to: getting excess sun exposure, swimming in chlorinated pools, and blasting A.C. in our homes. Naturally, these skin-drying culprits tend to be a bigger issue for folks who are already prone to dryness, so if that’s you, it’s extra important to use powerful hydrators—like Youth To The People’s Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask. Now, keep reading to find out why the award-winning formula deserves a definitive spot in your rotation this summer (and all year-round, TBH).
It’s mega-hydrating without being heavy
First and foremost, the luxe consistency of Dream Mask makes it super satisfying to use. Rather than leaving a filmy residue behind on the skin, Dream Mask sinks in quickly. Oh yeah, and it also smells like a dream, too: bright, juicy, and undeniably (super) fruity.
It’s loaded with hydrating and moisturizing ingredients
One of the main ways to keep skin well-hydrated is to protect it from transepidermal water loss (TEWL), which Dream Mask does with a blend of powerhouse ingredients that help hold moisture in the skin. As YTTP’s Director of Field Sales + Education, Jacob Tomás del Rosario, explains: “We have a blend of four vital hydrators in the mask—hyaluronic acid, betaine, glycerin, and squalane—that help the Dream Mask work to flood the skin with water and also lock it in.”
On top of that, it also contains prickly pear and panthenol (or vitamin B5), both of which further boost hydration.
It’s rich in antioxidants
When skin is dry, it’s can be a clear sign of oxidative stress—a direct result of the elements highlighted above—as well as factors like air pollution. Antioxidants aid in scavenging skin-damaging free radicals from the aforementioned elements. Dream Mask is formulated with antioxidant-dense ingredients like maqui, acai, vitamin C, and goji berries.
It pairs well with other hydrating products
To pack even more of a hydrating punch, apply Dream Mask on top of a nourishing serum like YTTP’s Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum, which combines four types of hyaluronic acid with cactus stem and peptides to prevent water loss and lock in moisture.
