Youth To The People Skin Care


Hope everyone is hanging in there during this time and staying safe.

I wanted to talk to you guys about these skincare products I came across. I went to this event in LA and was given small samples of different products. At that time, I was running out of my face wash and moisturizer. I saw in my goodie bag a brand called Youth To The People. It so happened to be both face wash and moisturizer. Which was EXACTLY what I needed.

I did some research and saw that Youth To The People was a vegan and sustainable brand. WHICH I LOVE.

Their small sample containers were so cute and appealing to the eye. Making it look adorable when on your bathroom counter. The face ash was in a mini clear glass bottle with the words “Spinach and Kale” written on it. The color of the wash was a light green (for obvious reasons). When applying the face wash, it was so lightweight and smooth!

I loved the texture of my skin after washing my face. It was NOT one of those facewash products that dry out your skin… I hate those..

The moisturizer was also in a mini clear glass lip balm jar, also with the words “Spinach and Kale”. It was a whipped texture, so when applying it, it felt so light, refreshing, and hydrating.

After using up all the samples, I was bummed and thought I HAVE to purchase these products. So I bought a big bottle of the facewash and a large jar of their moisturizer.

Since I have sensitive skin, a lot of the products I’ve used in the past would irritate my skin. I would form clumps of mini dots round my chin, making it look like I had an allergic reaction (not cute). With Youth To The People, my skin has never looked and felt so smooth and precise.

Highly recommend!

The Beauty Lab River Oaks

The other week I went to the Beauty Lab River Oaks to get a facial. The business is located in the River Oaks district (obviously) located on the 2nd floor. Right when you walk in, you feel as though you and your girlfriends should be relaxing and having drinks together. The whole ambiance made me happy and lively. Everyone who worked there was amicable and informative about any questions I had.

The facial I got was a customized facial which included dermaplaning and extractions! They have many services to choose from, but my skin needed an extraction ASAP. The Beauty Lab has fillers, botox, hair removal, and so much more to select from. (I’ll link their site below)

My facial was one of the best facials I’ve had in a while, the lady told me everything that was causing my skin to clog up and what I should do to prevent it. Although I loved how she was removing all my blackheads. It hurt a decent amount that my eyes were watering… (I have a video of me capturing the facial on my Instagram highlights) I knew it would be beneficial at the end, so I pushed through the pain! haha

A few days later, my skin looked so bright and glowy; all my blackheads, whiteheads, and impurities were gone! I definitely will be going back there to have more facials done. So anyone in Houston looking for a great beauty place. Go to the Beauty Lab River Oaks! SO WORTH IT

Skin Problems

Does anyone else get these weird breakouts on their face and you never know why?!

So I sometimes I get these tiny little white bumps on my face. They appear and disappear. It looks like an allergic reaction from something because it would come and go throughout the day or week. It was so annoying because sometimes they were there and sometimes they weren’t. I was confused about what was happening. I kept asking myself, am I eating something differently? Am I applying something to new to my skin? Is it my pillowcase? All these questions and didn’t know what was going on.

My friend wanted to stop by the Kiehl’s store to view their skin products. While I was there, I started asking the employee questions about my skin. I told her I was using their moisturizer in the morning and night but wasn’t sure why at times I was getting this irritation on my face.

It turns out the cause of these small little bumps was because the product I was using was too strong for my skin. I needed to use something lighter to let my skin breathe. The employee gave me these samples of a lighter moisturizer that I could use in the morning called Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel Creame. Then a night serum called Midnight Recovery Concentrate to use in the evening. My skin hasn’t had any weird breakouts or irritation since changing my routine.

I was in shock that the few years of having this problem, the cause of this was just because my product was too strong for my skin. WHO KNEW?!
