Hello hello! How are you? Today I want to talk to you about a moisturizer that I discovered a long time ago and that has become an essential part of my summer routines: the Youth to the People Age Prevention Moisture Cream.
BRAND: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE
PRODUCT: SUPERFOOD AIR-WHIP MOISTURE CREAM
SKIN TYPE: ALL
RECOMMENDED FOR: UNISEX
I like Youth to the People (a lot) for various reasons. First of all, their products are vegan and, in general, free of unnecessary ingredients (although in this case they have incorporated essential oils and perfume, despite being components that do not really contribute anything). On the other hand, I really like the philosophy of the brand, clearly open to everyone at a time when it is increasingly important for brands to have a clearly defined ethic. Last but not least, their products are very effective, so far I am very happy with everything I have been able to try from the brand.
This brand was born in 2014, although behind it we find the legacy of Eva Friederichs, who already began promoting the same values that Youth to the People upholds 40 years ago. The use of products of natural origin to take care of the skin is one of the great pillars of the brand (and it shows in all its products).
In this case, the moisturizer I’m telling you about is designed to hydrate our skin in depth while providing us with a good dose of antioxidants (great to help us maintain young skin). As you know, a good moisturizer is essential to finish our beauty routines, giving our skin the water it needs and helping to seal it so that the products we have used before are even more effective.
Its texture is very light, making it a great product for your summer routines. In fact, I think it is a more suitable product for summer than for winter, since I prefer to use denser products with a richer texture when the cold weather comes. It has an acidic, citric odor, which is very refreshing. It absorbs wonderfully and leaves a fresh and hydrated feeling on the skin.
Among its ingredients we find panthenol and hyaluronic acid (both help to improve hydration, attracting water to the deepest layers of the skin), ascorbic acid (vitamin C), to provide you with a good dose of antioxidants and help you improve tone and skin texture, and kale and spinach extract, also great sources of antioxidants. This moisturizer contains perfumes.
One aspect I like about Youth to the People is that their packaging is intended to be reused and recycled. In this case, the jar is made of glass, so you can reuse it to store other products (I usually reuse packaging if a product comes in a very large bottle or when traveling). I think it is important for brands to do their bit to promote recycling and reuse of products, so this is a success for Youth to the People.
If what you are looking for is a product that hydrates you in depth and helps you fight free radicals that make your skin age prematurely (thanks to its antioxidant-rich composition), this moisturizer is for you. I really like it, and I think it is a fantastic product for the summer.
HOW TO USE:
Lately I have gotten used to using this type of products with a plastic spoon to avoid contaminating them by sticking my fingers. With the equivalent amount of a chickpea of cream you have more than enough. Warm it up between your hands and spread it out by gently massaging it with your fingertips to make sure it absorbs well.

You don’t need to do all the steps from this routine (but you should always cleanse, moisturize and use sunscreen).
Remember it’s key to do a patch test every time you consider adding new products to your skincare routine.
