Cleansing 101: The cleansers that will keep your skin hydrated and smooth 365

By Carolina Malis

Do you remember when you were younger and got home late after a party and thought to yourself: “How bad can it really be if I go to bed with my makeup on?" to then fall into the arms of morpheus and wake up to racoon eyes. 14-year-old me played that trick many times, and oh, how I would like to go back in time and let her know she was gonna regret that decision in a few years.

Cleansing our faces every single day is not only about keeping our skin clean though. Removing dirt, oils and unwanted debris from our skin will protect it from growing bacteria, pollutants and viruses, AKA, all the nasty things that can cause acne, wrinkles, spots, inflammation and more skin struggles. In other words, a big NO-NO. Besides that, cleansing our skin is a must if we wanna keep it moisturized and hydrated. When our skin turns dehydrated that's when it looks dull, uneven and overall aged. When we take care of removing all the impurities we accumulate during the day we're helping our skin balance its pH levels so it stays healthy and hydrated at all times.

Regarding this matter, more than once I've gotten the question: “What can I do to make my pores close up?" The answer is very disappointing, because there's nothing you can actually do to accomplish that goal. Pores are not muscles, and for that reason they cannot open and close. What we can do though is keep them clean and away from residue so they're not filled up with it - which is what makes them look bigger in the first place.

Neogen cleansers

Now that I scared you enough about the consequences of not cleansing your face everyday you must be wondering: but how do I pick the right one for me? I know, there's a whole sea of cleansers out there promising different results, but today I'm gonna talk to you about some I personally recommend on the daily because of how gentle yet powerful they are, all while keeping my skin hydrated, meaning no stripping involved.

 

Green Tea Real Fresh Foam

Neogen Real Fresh Foam Green Tea 

Welcome to one of my absolute favorite cleansers. This super gentle, soothing and hyper hydrating foam cleanser not only smells but also feels incredible. Formulated with 100% real green tea leaves (that you can actually see floating around at the bottom of the bottle) is ideal for acne prone skins and those who suffer from inflammation, rosacea or any kind of sensitivity.

  

Cranberry Real Fresh Foam

Neogen Real Fresh Foam Cranberry 

Berries in general are packed with antioxidants, reason why this cleanser formulated with 100% real cranberries and cranberry water is ideal to prevent signs of premature aging while keeping your skin hydrated. While it can be used by everyone I personally feel like it's ideal for those with sensitive skin, as it not only soothes but also helps build up and reinforce the skin's natural protection barrier.

 

Blueberry Real Fresh Foam

Neogen Real Fresh Foam Blueberry

Are you on the dehydrated/dry skin side? Then this is the foam for you. This super hydrating foam is also formulated with a type of berry (blueberry) so just as the cranberry one it's packed with rich antioxidants, but the added moringa seed extract and other fermented ingredientes help fight off free radicals and prevent natural oils to escape your skin making it look smoother, brighter and overall healthier.

 

Cereal Real Fresh Foam

Neogen Real Fresh Foam Green Tea

Formulated with fermented rice seed and oryza sativa seed extract this is a godsend for those with dull skin (no matter if dry or oily). Its formula gently removes impurities and acts a little like an exfoliator, removing dead skin cells and impurities while taking care of or pores.

If you tend to sweat a lot or wear lots of makeup this one can be a great choice to keep your skin healthy and clean.

 

Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam

Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam

I’ve raved about the wonders of Cica all year long and I’m not thinking about stopping anytime soon. This cleansing foam formulated with Centella Asiatica extract (AKA Cica) is the absolute perfect second-step cleanser for those with sensitive-dry skin or those who tend to rosacea. It foams up to a super gentle lather that deeply cleans your skin without strippinig it from its natural oils, so you are left behind with plump, fresh and calm skin.

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.
