Exfoliation + Cica: The best of both worlds is in these Pads

Exfoliation + Cica: The best of both worlds is in these Pads

By Carolina Malis

 

To be completely honest I haven't been able to exfoliate much this month. Because of some circumstances I won't go into detail about right now I didn't have much access to my skincare for the past 30 days and while it was a hard challenge there's a few things I was able to discover and learn about, one of them being: Oh boy, exfoliation is even more important than I thought it was - and let me tell you I already knew it was super important.

During this exfoliation-free month my skin not only got duller but my pores are now the size of Russia and there's all these breakouts showing up every day, an issue I'd already gotten rid of in the past. I started wondering what was it. Was it my cleanser? Maybe the weather transition? The wind? Pollution? Nope, none of them. The reason was the lack of exfoliation.

First off - and answering a question I get A LOT - Who needs to exfoliate? Everyone! Our skin is constantly turning over which produces new cells at the dermis level. These are sent up to replace dead skin cells on the upper layer of our skin but while we age this process kinda slows down. Those cells begin to gather unevenly on the skin's surface which can lead to dry patches, enlarged pores and dull complexion, and here's when exfoliation becomes such an important thing to do: through exfoliation we can help remove the dead skin cells which reveals fresher, younger cells below and restores skin's natural clarity and brightness.

Now, every skin is different and so not every kind of exfoliator works for all of us. My skin is very sensitive, acne prone and tends to get red easily so I usually go for either chemical exfoliators or very gentle physical ones. One of my absolute favorites for this season are the Neogen Real Cica Pads. I've already told you in the past that I'm obsessed with their cleansing line and the exfoliating pads live up to the legend.

Highly sensitive skin? Breakouts? Dull complextion? Rosácea? Well, you found your best friend here. These pads come soaked in an formula made with Centella asiatica extract, one of the most popular skincare ingredients of the year because of its soothing, calming and anti inflammatory effects. It also helps promote collagen production which will help your skin barrier become stronger and more even - ideal for fall! Another star ingredient in these is hyaluronic acid, which deeply hydrates the skin for a long time.

One of the greatest things about these pads is the fact that you can use them every single day. While with other exfoliators you have to stick to 2-3 days a week these ones are safe and gentle enough so you can actually use them on your daily routine. Just like any other pad, right after cleansing take one pad out and gently smooth over your face with the embossed side, and that's it! After that just throw the pad out and tap in the remaining essence on your skin for better absorption.

To be honest I just can't live without these now that I've tried them, specially with Fall being here already and my skin getting all kinds of freaked out in the process. What's your favorite kind of exfoliator? Let us know in the comments!

Pore Control All-In-One: The Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser

Now, how would you feel if I tell you there's a product out there that can get rid of makeup, excess sebum, dirt, toxins, blackheads and dead skin build up in only one step? I know, you'd think I'm lying, but I'm not. I got introduced to Neogen Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser around a year ago during this same time of the year and my very first question was: How can a cleanser contain clay in it and not be extremely drying? Specially now with temperatures dropping I don't wanna put anything on my face that's gonna take hydration away. But must admit I was extremely surprised after the first time I actually used it.

Real Cica Micellar Oil & Foam Review by Bambi

I feel like 2018 is a Cica year - all the Cica products that we can see all around the place. This trend seems to be associated with K-beauty but it's not only about Korean brands that started this cult. There's always a reason why something becomes popular so I was positively surprised when I heard that Neogen has decided to make a series based on Centella Asiatica and release the Cica series. Currently, my double cleansing is based on Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil and Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam. How does it look like and why you should give a chance to this due?

One of the things I swap immediately when temperatures drop is my water-based cleanser. While during summer I tend to go for gel ones (which will get rid of excess sebum) for colder weather I tend to lookout for light-foam ones that will protect my skin's hydration levels. Now, there's lots to say about cleansers in the skincare community. The pH should be low, the pH should be high, some ingredients are good, some ingredients are bad, there should be no alcohol in them, there should be some kinds of alcohol in them… and a long, long list that could go on for years, but at the end of the day it's all about what works for you.

Bio Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon Review by Bambi

Exfoliators can have different forms but one of the most controversial is for sure peeling pad. Why are they so controversial? Because they usually mix two forms of exfoliants - chemical exfoliants and mechanical exfoliants. Today I want to show you the product I wanted to try for ages mostly because it was curated byCharlotte Cho, the owner ofSokoGlamas well as I've heard lots of good opinions about it from many beauty bloggers from all around the world -Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon. How do mixing chemical and mechanical exfoliators work? Is this mix better than traditional exfoliators?
