New Year, New Skin! Winter essentials to start the year off right!

New Year, New Skin! Winter essentials to start the year off right!

By Carolina Malis


It's a new year, which means 365 new opportunities to treat our skin the way it deserves to be treated, AKA, very nice. Is it one of your New Year's resolutions to take better care of yourself? Well, skincare is actually a great way of self-care!  If I'm totally honest, around 5 or 6 years ago, treating myself meant going to bed without having to go through the pain of doing a skincare routine, nowadays standing in front of my mirror with all my products and choosing what my skin needs in that specific moment is what I consider pampering myself. 

For the same reason there's a few products I always recommend to people looking forward to get started on the skincare journey. Doesn't matter if your skin is on the dry, oily or combo side or if you suffer from acne, sensitivity, rosacea, wrinkles or any other struggle, there's some products everyone can get good use from, and these are some of my favorites for winter time!


Real Flower Cleansing Water Calendula

Real Flower Cleansing Water - Calendula

Some use it as a cleansing water, some as a toner, but it's truly up to you where in your routine you prefer to positionate it. This super calming, super hydrating and very nourishing no-wash cleansing water is so soothing you will get obsessed after the first try (it happened to me). You can see the actual calendula petals floating on the bottle! These, mixed with natural cleansing agents and extracts not only remove makeup and traces of sunscreen but also dirt and waste trapped deep inside you pores. As I mentioned, all products on this list suit every skin type, but this is a godsend if you're on the sensitive skin side.


Bio Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon

Bio Peel Gauze Peeling - Lemon

Exfoliating is a must if you wanna keep your pores clean and your skin smooth. These pads are such a convenient, easy and effective yet super gentle way to do the job that they'll become your skin's best friends after first use. Formulated with hypoallergenic cotton gauze pads, these dual texture pads help get rid of dead skin cells, impurities, sebum and even makeup while also brightening skin thanks to the vitamin C contained in them. Do you battle those annoying little breakouts, uneven skin tone or even sun spots? These will help get rid of those, believe me.


Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam

Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam

This foam cleanser is truly what dreams are made of. Implementing an innovative formula containing micellar technology, this foam removes away everything trapped deep down inside your pores, from makeup to toxins and dead skin cells without stripping your face from its natural oils. The main ingredient? Centella Asiatica, AKA Cica, and madecassoside, both soothing and calming ingredients that help with inflammation, irritation and moderate skin's pH. Best part? It also works as a gentle exfoliator as it contains PHA's in the formula! A true do-it-all


Real Ferment Micro Serum

Real Ferment Micro Serum

Looking for a serum that not only benefits your skin's appearance but also helps reinforce its elasticity, delivers hydration and leaves your skin radiant? Well, look no further. This gel-type serum contains 61% natural fermented ingredients like panthenol and collagen which will help your skin become firmer, brighter and healthier in matter of weeks. It's a great add to your routine especially if you suffer from dull or uneven skin.

Which one of these sounds like it belongs in your skincare cabinet? Let us know in the comments!

Day Light Protection Sunscreen: The sunscreen that fits every skin type

You know when you joke about things but deep down you’re being serious and just hoping for someone to join you on your crazy ideas? Well, that’s me talking about wanting to create a sunscreen cult. I’m the sunscreen lady. I’m allergic to cats so cat lady wasn’t and option for me, so sunscreen it is. Since I learned how fundamental it was to wear it every single day of my life in order to have good skin I never went back. It’s a long term relationship and I know it will last forever.

Not only my morning walks to the subway are a moment I don’t look forward to but also my skin is definitely not happy about this whole situation and it needs a little extra help.

There are only a handful of kbeauty youtubers that I watch now but I have actually watched a couple of videos from Joan Kim (@JoanKeem) in the past – She is actually the one who introduced me to the Neogen brand! It seems so appropriate that she is now collaborating with them.
