New Season, New Cleanser, Real Fresh Foam Cranberry

New Season, New Cleanser - and please add cranberries to it

By Carolina Malis

A new season is in and not gonna lie, I'm very happy about it. Being able to finally wear sweaters, boots and coats, drink warm lattes and snuggle in bed are things that get me very excited, #noshame. But there's one thing I'd like to avoid during the weather transition and that's how freaked out my skin gets. I think I could be considered a skincare nerd, so whenever temperatures start going down or up I set an emergency routine to make sure my skin stays as healthy as I can keep it (of course that's not all in my hands so I still have to struggle).

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.

Have you ever tried a cleanser and feel that mummy-like effect afterwards, when you can barely speak because of how tight and dry your skin feels? In my opinion that the first sign a cleanser is not good for you. Just as drinking water, keeping our skin hydrated is a MUST if we want for it to stay healthy. As the largest organ, our skin contains approximately 64 percent water, helping retain all the moisture our body needs trapped inside. For that same reason it's super important that we do all that's in our hands to protect it and nourish it. 

When skin cells get dehydrated, they will shrink and become brittle, which makes them more prone to toxins, bacteria and other outside invaders that can affect skin health. The result is uncomfortable, tight-feeling, flaky skin that is much more prone to a variety of skin concerns — including shedding, premature aging, and acne. That's why it's so important to pick a cleanser that's not only gonna get rid of dead skin cells and toxins but that's gonna help your skin stay hydrated.

Neogen Real Fresh Foam Cranberry

Now, you've probably heard about Neogen foam cleanser before (or seen them at your nearest Sephora). But, what makes them such a great catch? This collection features a range of different fruits, cereals and ingredients that help improve your skin's condition and most importantly, keep it hydrated. The gentle foam effectively removes impurities such as sweat and dirt from the skin without stripping your skin's natural oils, a.k.a, BINGO! It's super lightweight and hydrating, which makes it the perfect water-based cleanser to use in your double-cleansing routine.

 Neogen Real Fresh Foam Cranberry

One of my absolute favorites is the Real Fresh Foam Cranberry. As you can imagine it contains real fermented cranberries - which you can actually see floating at the bottom of the bottle -  and cranberry fruit water, which contains powerful antioxidants to prevent signs of premature aging and won't strip your skin of its natural oils. But that's not all! This cleanser is suitable for all and every skin type - but let me say, specially if you suffer from sensitive skin… Oh! the wonders it will do for you. It also contains fermented plant and fruit extracts, which produce extra enzymes and vitamins that will reinforce your skin's natural barrier.

If you're looking for a nice water-based cleanser for the new season I would absolutely recommend to start with this one. While the Green Tea and Cereal ones are also part of my routine I feel like the cranberry one is better to start off with, as it's really super gentle - and smells incredible. (Shop Now)

Meet your fast - yet effective - spot care essentials for winter

When talking acne there’s a few things we need to keep in mind: first off, we can all have it, and for that same reason we all need to know how to keep it under control once it decides to show up. For the longest time of my life I had to struggle with having no idea how acne really worked. I went from dermatologists to dermatologist thinking they were finally gonna share the big secret behind how to get rid of it for good, but it never happened, or at least not until I turned to K-Beauty.

Sunscreen and Aging: Here’s why these are and item

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.


NEO I TRENDING <br>The answer behind long-lasting hydration? Hyaluronic Acid!

The answer behind long-lasting hydration? Hyaluronic Acid!

You hear the term everywhere. From skincare, to supplements and even some makeup brands are using it lately. Hyaluronic acid is without a doubt part of the skincare royalty, and there’s a reason why.

Hydration is one of the main signs of a healthy complexion. In a way, all we do for our skin has a focus on keeping it hydrated. When dehydration takes over, all the other skin struggles we could be facing get worse, reason why in a nutshell, we can’t get rid of acne, wrinkles, dark spots, rosacea, eczema or any other concern if our skin is not hydrated, and here’s where Hyaluronic Acid plays a lead role.

The two hero-moisturizers that will save your skin this winter

And just like that, winter is here once again and not only my wardrobe noticed it but my skin did too. I don't know about you I'm already running through basically a whole bottle of toner a month and don't even get me started on the sometimes-insane amounts of mist I apply throughout the day. Totally #guilty of using it every single minute of my day.
