Summertime Skin Care from Atopalm

Moisture MistKeeping skin safe in summer shouldn’t be a full-time job! Don’t let summertime skin care overwhelm you; protect your skin and keep it healthy with Atopalm.

Dry and sensitive skin types are very prone to sun damage. For dry skin, summer sun exposure can cause it to become even drier. Not only does the sun dry out skin, but pool chlorine and salt water can also zap what little moisture your dry skin is clinging to!

When it comes to sensitive skin, sun, chlorine, and saltwater also cause issues; however, these issues can sometimes be even more extreme than those for dry skin. For starters, sensitive skin conditions like rosacea can be worsened by heat alone, and become even more irritated with direct sun and water exposure. Then there are those with conditions like polymorphous light eruption, which is an allergic reaction to sun exposure. The list goes on!

To keep things short and sweet, here’s some great news: most summertime dry skin conditions and sensitive skin issues can be addressed with the same two Atopalm products! These two skin care products aren’t the end-all-be-all, but they are definitely the go-to products for summertime skin care.

First, choose a shade (Light or Medium) of our BB Cream to wear each day. Atopalm BB Cream perfects the skin with mineral pigment while giving an extra dose of MLE on top of your daily skin care moisturizer. Most importantly for summer, though, is the fact that it contains SPF and skin care antioxidants to protect the skin and prevent sun damage and irritation. The best defense is a good offense, and skin care is no exception to this rule!

If you do fall victim to sun damage, or you find that swimming has done a number on your dry, sensitive skin, it’s time to turn to product number two: Moisture Mist. Atopalm Moisture Mist is a fine mist spray that can be used from head to toe. It contains a slew of soothing and moisturizing ingredients that replenish hydration in no time while deeply comforting damaged skin. Moisture Mist is a must-have product for every beach bag!

Adding these two sensitive skin care products to your daily summer skin care routine will go a long way toward keeping skin looking and feeling healthy all summer long.

As the days heat up, many of us have grand plans for trips to the beach, lake, or even the good ol’ pool! If you’re planning to partake in some fun in the sun, follow our tried-and-true beach skin care tips to ensure that your skin looks and feels great, and stays healthy after sun exposure.

Before
Before you head to your summer destination of choice, prepare your skin with our Moisturizing Body Lotion. MLE, allantoin, and vitamin E will work together to soften, smooth, and illuminate the skin, while also repairing and preventing damage with skin care antioxidants. With regular use, our Moisturizing Body Lotion promises improved softness and radiance – a must-have for swimsuit weather!

During
While you’re enjoying those warm rays of sunshine, keep your sensitive skin protected! For the body, choose a broad-spectrum SPF cream that won’t irritate dry skin. For your face, use our Atopalm BB Cream in Light or Medium, which protects with SPF and skin care antioxidants, while moisturizing with MLE and perfecting the complexion with lightweight mineral makeup pigments.

After
When you get home from your summertime excursion, repair skin and fight dehydration with Moisture Mist. This spray-on formula is perfect for after sun care use from head to toe. It replenishes moisture with MLE and hyaluronic acid while fighting premature signs of aging with palmitoyl pentapeptide-4. Moisture Mist can also soothe discomfort caused by prolonged sun exposure. It’s the perfect way to refresh the skin and mind after summer fun!

Follow these beach skin care tips to keep skin healthy and beautiful all summer long!

Why Facial Cleansing Counts

You’ve heard it time and again: wash your face each morning and night! But, do you know why facial cleansing counts? Here’s a look at why it’s good to wash your face, and when you should skip the soap in favor or gentler facial cleansing methods.

Reason #1: it removes the gunk.
This one is the most obvious, which is why we’re starting here! Face cleansers remove excess oils, environmental debris, dirt, leftover makeup, and dead skin cells. In the morning, washing your face rids it of any oil and dead cell buildup, as well as the remains of your night time skin care routine. It also preps the skin for your daily skin care routine, which actually helps your skin care products work better!

In the evening, face cleansing takes off makeup and the dirt and debris that build up throughout the day. It also helps to replace moisture lost throughout the day (as long as you’re using a high-quality moisturizing face wash, that is) and prepare the skin for its renewal cycle, which happens while you sleep.

Reason #2: it protects against discomfort.
Washing your face can actually help soothe and protect dry skin and sensitive skin types. Unfortunately, many people with dry, sensitive skin believe that the opposite is true, and they end up washing their face less often than is ideal.

How does skin cleansing protect against discomfort? First, it gets rid of the gunk, as seen above. If left alone, this “gunk” will greatly contribute to dry skin, irritation, uneven pigment, and more.

Then, it allows the skin to begin repairing itself without all of the dead cells, makeup, etc. interfering with its process. This means your skin can repair issues and fight free radicals all on its own!

Finally, it allows your next skin care products to absorb quickly and work better, resulting in optimized skin care performance and results.

Reason #3: its a stress reducer.
Now, this is a little-known truth about washing your face: it reduces stress, both emotionally and physically. It may sound crazy, but cleansing your skin can actually be something you look forward to!

From an emotional standpoint, routine is a known stress-reducer. Having a quiet moment to prepare your skin for the day, or wash after a long day of productivity, allows your body and mind to settle and become relaxed. Its also beneficial to set side time for yourself – just to focus on you and your own needs.

From a physical standpoint, cleansing your skin reduces the stress on your skin! When it’s not dealing with buildup from the day, or suffocating under makeup all night, your skin is able to fight free radicals and repair damage with efficiency.

Cleanse with Atopalm
At Atopalm, we believe that skin should never feel squeaky clean. That may sound crazy coming from a blog post all about cleansing skin, but it’s true! That squeaky clean feeling comes from removing too much your skin’s natural moisture, which is a major mistake for all skin types, but especially for dry and sensitive skin. cleansingfoam

Instead, our Moisturizing Cleansing Foam promises to provide all the benefits mentioned above while providing a light layer of moisture and nourishment to the skin. After washing with our best-selling cleansing foam, your skin will feel soft, smooth, supple and, most importantly, healthy.

Fake a Facelift with Phytoceramids

Are you looking to achieve the anti-aging skin care results of a facelift without the cost, pain, recovery, and complication risks? Believe it or not, it’s doable! You can fake a facelift at home with little to no risk of side effects, and save hundreds or thousands of dollars in the process.

How is this possible? With phytoceramides of course! Phytoceramides, also known as plant ceramids, are natural ingredients used in anti-aging skin care to gently turn back the hands of time without surgery or in-office procedures.

Phytoceramids are able to replenish the ceramides that occur naturally in your skin. You see, the cells of the outermost layer of skin are help together with skin ceramides. These ceramides are a fatty substance that work similarly to glue. Ceramides also help to keep the skin hydrated, which leads to all the characteristics of youthful skin – suppleness, elasticity, radiance, and smoothness.

As people age, ceramides are killed off thanks to poor diet, environmental aggressors, free radicals, and other forms of damage. When ceramide levels become depleted, the top layer of skin is left without its glue and its moisture protection! By age 60, most people’s top layer of skin is around 30% thinner than it was in their youth. This is where fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dryness, and ruddiness come in.

So, what does all this mean for you and your DIY facelift? You’ve probably got it all figured out by now! When you use skin care with phytoceramides, those plant ceramides are able to replace your skin’s lost ceramides! Your cells are “re-glued” and your skin is able to maintain or even regain characteristics of youthful skin. Moisture levels are maintained. Thickness is protected. Smoothness, radiance, elasticity, and suppleness win!

Atopalm MLE (multi-lamellar emulsion) is created with phytoceramides, as well as fatty acids and good cholesterol. The reason why we used a combination of ingredients instead of just plant-derived ceramides is because this blend actually perfectly mimics the skin’s natural lipid lamellar structure. This provides superior anti-aging skin care results, as well as deep soothing and moisturizing benefits for dry skin and sensitive skin types.
