Why you should use a single face cream for everything

Por qué deberías utilizar una única crema facial para todo


One cream for the day, another for the night. A different one for each season. And another depending on the classification of your skin.

Work tranquilamente. 

That we arrive defending the use of a single cream for everything when there is almost one for each day of the year and skin type on the market, sounds —at least— strange.

Do you also, in general, in life, everything works better for you when you SIMPLIFY and make it easy for yourself?

The same thing happens to your skin. You only need two specific care: nourish and hydrate and a balanced ph. And point. 

No more complications.

So that you can see it clearly. When you nourish your skin you are feeding it; when you hydrate it, to drink. Basic needs covered, check.

With this, the largest organ (remember that it is) in the body already has everything it needs to live. There is just one other factor to consider.

Live and let live

This is the only other requirement that your epidermis asks for: that you let it live. As simple as that.

What do we mean? Because it is crucial to respect the microbiota of the epidermis and keep the pH regulated at 5.5 —which is acid, not neutral—.

To understand each other, the microbiota is the natural "ecosystem" of the skin and the ph its main protective mechanism.

Not intervening in its development is the only way to ensure that the good and necessary bacteria continue to live happily on your skin and to avoid the bad ones such as acne and other alterations. And it would be

Neither mixed nor oily nor dry

Let's put an end to this myth. There are no dry, mixed or oily skins. 

Skin is naturally made up of water and fat.

What there are people with a higher sebum index (if you are one of these, congratulations! Despite everything you have heard, you are lucky because you have extra nutrition) and others with a lack of water.

In this second case, it is likely that, from time to time, your face will feel uncomfortable, tight and with marked wrinkles. No.It needs to hydrate and nourish.

Whether your skin is over-oiled or in need, ONE single cream that regulates these functions is more than enough to make your skin look healthy, bright and firm.

Yes, only ONE.

Well, this seems so simple, it is not (or at least, it was not a few years ago). And now is when we go back to the times of Maricastaña.

You may have known us for a long time or you may have just landed here. If you are one of the latter (welcome!), we tell you that our journey began with our own beauty salon in the center of Bilbao.

And the reality is that 7 years ago it was difficult for us to find the cream we wanted to perform our facial treatments in the cabin that met our expectations.

What did we do then? Well, you know, "if Muhammad doesn't go to the mountain, the mountain goes to Muhammad." So here, the Avignon sisters threw the blanket over our heads and decided to create it.

And to do it, you had to do it well. 3 were the non-negotiable requirements:

  • how much your aroma lemon, geranium and roses, like its nourishing texture were part of the benefits and also provided emotional well-being.
  • that their Ingredients were botanicals and of local provenance.
  • And replace the water as basic ingredient (what happens in most creams) by Damascus rose hydrosol, rich in vitamins and minerals.

There nasei moisturizing face cream had just been born. 

Produced with brihuega lavender, roses and geraniums from Murcia that is distilled in caravaca de la cruz (also Murcia) and almonds from Alicante.

Why we chose geranium, lavender and roses? What can these plants do for your skin?

let's start with him geranium. Surely you know this flower from seeing it on balconies and gardens, but did you know that it is a powerful antioxidant that favors the Cell regeneration?

In other words, geranium makes your skin age more slowly.

What are we going to tell you about the rosa? If its properties are infinite. Reduces inflammation of the skin, the protege against free radicals calm, softens expression lines, regenerates it and makes you feel it more flexible and elastic.

And lastly, the lavender, what balance and calm all skin types, including the most sensitive.

With all this, the only thing we can tell you is that we didn't know if it would be successful or not, but we did manage to do the cream we are proud of

Imagine how we feel when we look back and realize that in all these years some 4000 units and that there is even a woman in Canada who orders them to take it away every time someone goes to visit her.

Well that. Happy.

And all this, with ONE unique cream. In case you had any doubts that SIMPLE, always better.
