Wash Your Face!

It’s the first step of any good skin care regimen, but it’s also the most skipped step! For some reason, face washing has become the annoying little sister of skin care, even though it takes only minutes and provides countless benefits.

Here’s a look at why you should wash your face, and how you can make this sometimes annoying task a little easier.

1) It keeps skin clear. While it’s known that dirt doesn’t directly cause acne blemishes, a buildup of excess oil and makeup certainly can worsen problem skin. Cleansing skin in the morning and evening will help keep oil production regulated, while removing debris, dirt, and other things that may cause or worsen acne breakouts.

2) It keeps skin calm. When it comes to dry and sensitive skin, skipping the cleansing step can lead to irritation. Sensitive skin can’t handle day after day of debris buildup, and it will respond by becoming agitated. While dry skin and sensitive skin shouldn’t be cleansed too often or with very hot water, these skin types should still be gently washed in the morning before skin care products are applied, and before bed to remove the debris of the day.

3) It keeps skin fresh. If you often skip your face cleansing step, you may be unfamiliar with just how good it feels to have properly cleansed skin. When you wash your face with a gentle face wash, it should never feel itchy, tight, or dry; instead, it should feel pure and refreshed.

So, for those who hate to wash their face: here’s how to make skin cleansing an easy, doable task!

In the morning, start with our Moisturizing Facial Cleansing Foam. The rich, lush texture deeply cleans skin without stripping it of essential moisture. It dissolves excess oil and removes dirt and debris collected overnight, leaving the face feeling like a perfect palette for skin care. In addition, by washing the face before applying skin care, you’ll actually enhance your skin care regimen’s efficacy by removing the “road blocks” of dirt, oil, leftover makeup, and dead skin.

In the evening, it’s time to remove makeup and the buildup of environmental toxins and dirt. Pretty much everyone dislikes taking time to wash their face before bed, so we’ve made it extra easy with our Moisturizing Cleansing Wipes. These pre-saturated wipes thoroughly remove makeup and cleanse skin while covering it in a light layer of our moisturizing MLE. After just a few swipes across the face, the skin is pure and hydrated.

Of course, either of our cleansers may be used at any time of day. We just feel that this is the quickest, easiest, and most effective way to keep skin fresh and pure without the hassle of traditional cleansing routines.

Fall in Love with Atopalm Skin Care for Fall

It’s finally happening! Fall has returned! Well, technically fall begins in two days, but who’s counting? I’m not sure if you can tell or not, but fall is pretty exciting to me. You’d be excited, too, if your summer temps hovered around 105 degrees! Who cares about pumpkin spice anything? Just give me a hoodie!

Another thing I love about fall is changing up my skin care routine. We all know how even a little change in the day-to-day makes everything feel new and easier. Well, now’s your chance to give yourself a break from the mundane and switch over to your fall skin care regimen!

How should a skin care regimen change with the seasons? It’s not about finding new formulas (though some may choose to switch) but more about what you spend your time focusing on. Here’s a look at how a summer skin care routine should change with the shift into fall.

Less lotion, more cream. For many people, cooler weather means heavier skin care moisturizers. This is especially true for those with dry skin who need extra help in fall and winter, thanks to harsher weather and central heating.

If you usually use a face lotion, which is generally lighter weight than a cream, it might be a good time to switch. For very dry skin or sensitive skin, I recommend our Intensive Moisturizing Cream. It is rich enough for even extremely dry skin, and can even be used on dry areas like the knees and elbows.

If you have normal or oily skin, our Daytime Undermakeup Moisture Cream is a great choice. It still provides great hydration with our patented MLE, but won’t feel quite as heavy as Intensive Moisturizing Cream. As the name suggests, it’s also ideal for use under makeup!

Less hot water, more hand moisturizerIn the cooler months, it may be tempting to warm up by using hot water when you bathe or wash your hands. However, this is very damaging to dry skin and can significantly increase discomfort and dryness. The hot water strips away protective oils (which dry skin lacks to begin with), leaving the hands feeling raw.

Instead, wash and bathe in tepid water, and always follow-up with a moisturizer. Since people tend to wash their hands throughout the day (at least, I hope they do!), I especially recommend keeping our Moisturizing Hand Treatment with you. It is the best hand cream  you will ever use, and it instantly calms dry skin on contact.

Less makeup, more moisture application. In summer, even dry skin can typically get by with just a morning and evening application of face moisturizer. In colder months, though, it’s strongly recommended that you re-apply light layers of moisturizer throughout the day, or whenever skin feels parched.

The best way to accomplish this without completely ruining your makeup is to apply a light layer of makeup and use our Moisture Mist throughout the day. This way, you’re not applying face cream overtop your carefully applied makeup, and your makeup isn’t getting in the way of your moisturizer!

Another great idea is to use our BB Cream instead of traditional makeup. Atopalm BB Cream moisturizes and protects skin while evening the complexion, which makes it a great choice for those who need to moisturize throughout the day.

As you can see, updating your skin care routine to reflect the changing seasons doesn’t have to be an ordeal, and can lead to a fun new system. Just tweak a couple products, and you’ll have the perfect plan for achieving beautiful, happy skin.

Whether you wake up ready for the day, or begrudgingly roll out of bed after pressing snooze five times, Atopalm can help simplify your mornings with our Quick and Easy Duo.

The Quick and Easy Duo features two products that work together to create a two-step process that can be used alone as its own regimen, or added into any existing skin care regimen. This means you can choose to spend five minutes on your skin on rushed mornings, or slow down and pamper your skin when you have a little more time!

The Quick and Easy Duo comes with Moisturizing Cleansing Wipes and BB Cream in either Light or Medium depending on your complexion shade. Plus, when these two products are purchased together in the Quick and Easy Duo, you’ll receive 20% off retail cost!

Begin by cleansing and lightly moisturizing with the Moisturizing Cleansing Wipes. These pre-saturated wipes will remove makeup, dirt, and debris while gently moisturizing the skin. For very dry skin, it is recommended that you follow the wipes with a richer moisturizer like our Intensive Moisturizing Cream. However, all other skin types will find that the wipes and BB Cream provide enough moisture for the day.

When you apply your BB Cream, you’re actually applying moisturizer, SPFskin care antioxidants, and natural-looking pigment! This one little formula will take your cleansed skin, and transform it into skin that’s ready to face the day. It’s great for all skin types, but those with sensitive skin will especially appreciate how much it does without causing irritation.

The Quick and Easy Duo is also an ideal beginner’s skin care kit for tweens and teens. It’s simple enough for school mornings, and both products are travel-friendly and great for sleepovers and family trips!
