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.

How to Do a Pedicure and Manicure

As the weather warms, more women (and men!) are heading to the spa for a pedicure and manicure! After all, summer is the time of flip flops and fun polish colors for all your warm-weather adventures.

However, mani/pedis can become expensive very quickly. Plus, often spas use subpar dry skin care products that may be harsh on sensitive and dry skin types. If you find that you’re needing better-quality skin care or to save a few bucks in the spa department, then this how-to guide is for you! Read on to learn how to do a pedicure and manicure at home like the pros.

Step 1: remove old nail polish and soak your hands and feet in comfortably warm water. Make sure the water isn’t too hot, or it’ll dry out your sensitive skin. You can add epsom, bath salts, or essential oils to your water to create a more spa-like atmosphere!

Step 2: remove your feet from their soak and, using a slightly damp wash cloth, gently slough away dead skin. Your skin should be very soft at this point, and only mild pressure should yield results. If your sensitive skin isn’t too tender, you’re also welcome to use a sea sponge or foot file to remove dead skin. However, for very sensitive skin, a washcloth will be enough.

Step 3: with skin still damp, moisturize your hands with Atopalm Moisturizing Hand Treatment and Atopalm Foot and Heel Balm. Work the hand cream into your cuticles, and the Foot and Heel Balm into calloused and cracked areas. Allow time for the moisturizer to sink in and thoroughly repair the skin with MLE and other advanced moisturizing ingredients.

Step 4: gently push back hand and feet cuticles with a cuticle pusher and trim as needed. If your cuticle beds are too sensitive, you may also gently push them in with your thumb nails until they are cleaned up a bit. Then, shape nails with a file until desired length and shape.

Step 5: paint nails with a formaldehyde-free nail polish and top coat, or simply use a drop of apricot kernel oil to nourish your nails if you prefer a natural nail.

That’s it! You’ve just completed your at-home mani/pedi and saved yourself a pretty penny. You can even maximize your savings by purchasing the Moisturizing Hand Treatment and Foot and Heel Balm together in our Hand and Foot Duo, which is offered at 20% off retail price! Happy spa day!

How to Get Radiant Skin

Youthful, healthy skin can be summed up with three descriptors: smooth, supple, and radiant. If you find that your radiance has gone the way of the dinosaurs, we’re here to help! In this post, you’ll learn all about how to get radiant skin with Atopalm.

Unfortunately, dry and sensitive skin types are usually the first to lose their radiance. It’s hard to be radiant when your skin doesn’t have the right moisture balance! Lack of radiance contributes to many skin complaints, including premature skin aging, looking dull or tired, ashy skin tone, and more.

When your skin is radiant, it automatically appears healthier and more youthful. The great news is that the quickest way to getting radiant skin is to replenish and maintain healthy moisture levels, something we at Atopalm know a little about!

Our Atopalm MLE technology is able to mimic the skin’s natural lipid layer. When your skin is dry, damaged and sensitive, it usually means that your lipid layer is compromised and unable to maintain healthy moisture levels. MLE is able to soak into your skin to repair and support the lipid layer, leading to skin that looks and feels healthy and – you guessed it! – radiant.

Any of our MLE products will be able to restore comfort and radiance to your skin, but we do have two dry skin care products that work especially well together to restore radiance. Meet our Extreme Treat Duo. Featuring a face complex and eye serum, the Extreme Treat Duo can restore and illuminate the entire face.

First, the Moisturizing Skin Revitalizing Complex offers anti-aging skin care actions to smooth fine lines and other visible signs of aging. MLE restores the lipid layer and other advanced ingredients support skin function and appearance. Its lightweight texture comforts and soothes feelings of dryness without ever feeling heavy or greasy. In no time at all, radiance is restored!

Next, the Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum gently yet effectively addresses visible signs of aging and dryness in the eye area. The eye area is often one of the first areas of the body to show signs of aging. Our advanced anti-aging eye serum aims to prevent and diminish signs of aging, allowing your eye area to reclaim and maintain a youthful vibrancy, as well as healthy moisture levels.

The best part? When you buy these two anti-aging skin care products together in the Extreme Treat Duo, you’ll save 20% off retail price and earn free shipping to any U.S. location! It’s an extreme treat for your skin and your wallet!

Reclaim radiance and comfort with Extreme Treat Duo today!


How to Treat Oily Skin with Moisture

When you think Atopalm, chances are you think of dry, sensitive skin. While our advanced MLE products are a perfect choice for those skin types, we want you to know that Atopalm is great for oily skin, too!

Oily skin can have many root causes, but there’s one thing that can be agreed on — oily skin still needs moisture. Many people with oily skin types shy away from moisturizers because they feel too heavy or greasy. This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make for your oily skin!

Rather than not needing moisture, oily skin may need moisture more than most other skin types! You see, your oily skin may be caused by your skin’s inability to create and maintain healthy moisture levels. To compensate, the skin creates more oil, which leads to an oil imbalance. By just keeping your skin’s moisture levels up and lipid layer supported with Atopalm skin care, your skin can balance its own oil production, leading to a healthier complexion.

How to treat oily skin with moisture is as simple as purifying with a oily skin cleanser and following up with an appropriate oily skin face moisturizer. All of our MLE products are safe for oily skin; however, most oily skin sufferers will find that our rich Intensive Moisturizing Cream is too heavy for their preferences. Rather, we recommend these three products:

  • Atopalm Moisturizing Skin Revitalizing Complex
    Why: this anti-aging skin care product features a lighter texture than our flagship moisturizer. Plus, anti-aging ingredients, skin care antioxidants, and brightening vitamins work to achieve a more youthful appearance.
  • Atopalm BB Cream
    Why: a masterful multi-tasker, BB Cream provides lightweight yet effective moisture while simultaneously protecting against UV damage and camouflaging skin imperfections. It’s an all-in-one product for all skin types!
  • Atopalm Moisture Mist
    Why: ultra light yet ultra rich. It’s your go-to for both face and body moisture that promises to keep skin hydrated without feeling heavy or greasy.

As you can see, when it comes to learning how to treat oily skin with moisture, you need look no further than Atopalm. Our MLE formulations are non-comedogenic and work to actually repair and support the skin’s natural lipid layer, leading to skin that is able to better control its own oil production.

How to Soothe Shaving Irritation

Welcome to part one of our three part How To series! If you have an idea for another How To blog post, drop us a line by leaving a comment here or messaging us on Facebook!

Have you ever wondered how to soothe shaving irritation? For most dry, sensitive skin, shaving irritation is a big deal. Razor burn, shaving bumps, stinging, redness, and inflammation are realities for many people who are just after a clean, close shave!

If you have dry or sensitive skin, you’re at a higher risk of shaving irritation; however, any skin type can suffer from shaving side effects if they don’t take proper precautions. As with anything, the best way to soothe shaving irritation is to prevent it, so let’s start there!

When it comes to preventing shaving irritation, you’ll want to make sure of a few things. First, that you have a very sharp, clean razor. Many companies recommend using disposable razors only once (hence the name), though others say that razors can be safely used 2-3 times. Be sure to follow your brand’s instructions to help avoid shaving irritation.

Next, choose a shaving cream, lotion or gel that compliments your skin type. It should be free of clogging ingredients that can dull your razor, as well as harsh ingredients that can irritate skin and worsen shaving irritation. Alcohols, chemical fragrances, and any known allergens should be avoided.

Finally, shave in the direction of hair growth. As long as your razor is sharp and your skin clean and free of clogging shaving creams, this should provide you with a close, smooth shave. If you must shave against hair growth, do so carefully and slowly, being sure that your razor isn’t snagging or getting stuck on stubborn hair.

After following these steps, shaving irritation should be reduced or avoided altogether! However, if you find that you’re still experiencing razor burn or other forms of irritation, the best form of shaving treatment is our Moisture Mist.

Simply spray Moisture Mist onto any area of the skin affected by shaving irritation. The unique 360 degree design means it can be sprayed at any angle, making shave irritation treatment easy! MLE and hyaluronic acid work together to instantly calm skin with lasting hydration while the advanced properties of MLE work to restore the skin’s natural lipid barrier. Palmitoyl pentapeptide-4 promises anti-aging skin care actions that help restore a youthful, radiant glow.

Use Moisture Mist on the face or body after shaving, or as needed to restore moisture throughout the day! It’s a great on-the-go product, and can easily be used to after sun care, to set makeup, or even in lieu of a traditional body lotion.
