Korean Skin Care Regimen by Atopalm

Korean skin care has been on the rise for a long time now, but what makes it so special? Here’s a look at why Korean skin care products and a Korean skin care regimen may be just what your skin needs.

  1. Atopalm Korean skin care uses gentle ingredients that won’t strip or damage the skin. Many other leading formulas achieve “results” by using harsh ingredients which stress the skin into exhibiting false improvement, only to then throw the skin off its normal balance. Atopalm products work to support the skin’s natural, healthy functions to create beauty and comfort from within.
  2. Korean skin care regimens focus on pampering and caring for the skin. Emphasis is placed on treating the skin kindly, both with ingredients and the actual application process. Skin isn’t tugged or scrubbed; rather, it’s massaged and loved!
  3. Korean skin care products are used religiously. Once a regimen is built, it is followed every day. This dedication is essential to great results, as well as maintaining the healthy skin you’ve worked to achieve.

Atopalm has been the #1 skin care for sensitive skin in Korea for ten consecutive years, and has been awarded the KBPI Golden Brand seal for sensitive skin. So while the Korean skin care regimen is becoming popular, Atopalm has been leading the pack in its home country, making it the ideal choice for someone who is ready to take their skin seriously.

Korean Beauty Tricks You’ll Love

The K-Beauty world is growing by the second, and it’s not secret why — Korean beauty uses advanced ingredients while simultaneously focusing on respecting and loving your skin. This combination packs a powerful punch when it comes to skin care!

There are many examples of Korean skin care revolutionizing the industry, but here’s just a few of our favorites.

 

 

Double Cleansing
That’s right, step one involves cleansing — twice! Every skin care regimen emphasizes the importance of cleansing, but chances are you’re only cleansing once in the morning and once in the evening. (And we all skip that evening cleanse once in a while!)

For the Korean skin care regimen, you cleanse twice, two times a day. But it’s not as simple as using your foaming cleanser twice in a row. Instead, you wash with a normal face wash, and follow it up with a gentle “cleansing water” which you use without tap water.

Cleansing water removes any trace of makeup or debris your regular cleanser may have left behind, and is often also formulated with moisturizing and nourishing ingredients to give your skin a boost even before you apply your face cream. Now that’s worth an extra cleansing step!

Sheet Masks
By now we’ve all seen photos of celebrities posting with a horror movie-worthy white sheet mask on their face. Or maybe you’ve even used a fun printed sheet mask, which turns you into a tiger or panda for a few minutes!

Sheet masks are papery sheets (shocker!) infused with skin-improving ingredients. Gone are the days of messy cream masks; sheet masks are more like intensive serums which can do everything from moisturize to exfoliate.

Between the ease of applying and removing these masks, and the fact that they are often ultra-affordable, we don’t think this Kbeauty trend will be disappearing anytime soon. Read this blogger’s experience using sheet masks for just a few days in a row >>

Face Massage
Who doesn’t love an excuse for a massage?! Turns out massaging your face can help reduce puffiness and encourage a healthy, natural glow — all by manually stimulating the skin to boost circulation. Increased circulation within the skin is also known for helping to clear breakouts, so you may be in for a bonus if your massage your face regularly!

Make sure to massage with the muscles instead of against them. Use the knuckles of your first two fingers to massage from under your cheekbones, moving in upward strokes. Press firmly, but you should feel comfortable the whole time.

Still using your knuckles, massage along the sides of your nose to the top of your forehead, then around the edges of your face. Lastly, use your fingertips to gently massage under your eyes.

You can do all this during your cleansing or moisturizing step, which will help your hands glide across your face without discomfort.

How to Love Your Skin

When skin issues like dryness, rosacea, eczema, or acne are at the forefront of your skin care regimen, it’s hard to truly love your skin. After all, lovable skin is smooth and glowing, right?

The truth is, you have to treat your skin like you love it in order to get skin that you truly love. Fake it ’til you make it!

Atopalm makes it easy to achieve healthy skin that’s easier to love with MLE, our star ingredient. MLE mimics the skin’s natural lipid layer to keep it moisturized and protected against environmental aggressors that can cause or exacerbate any number of skin concerns.

When using MLE on a regular basis, you’ll find that it begins to function more and more like healthy skin — because it’s truly becoming healthier! Atopalm is not a “bandage brand” which means we don’t believe in covering up issues. We believe in addressing issues, helping the skin heal, preventing future concerns from occurring.

Aside from using Atopalm MLE to heal and protect skin, here are some easy steps you can take toward loving your skin today.

  • Drink water and herbal teas throughout the day to keep skin (and the body!) hydrated
  • Always remove makeup before bed, either by washing your face normally or using our Cleansing Water to remove makeup without washing with water
  • Spend around 15 minutes per day in the sun without SPF to help your body generate vitamin D, but then apply your SPF to keep skin protected for the rest of the day
  • Sleep! Healthy sleep habits are essential to skin health and function
  • Refrain from touching your skin throughout the day to keep bacteria to a minimum

As you can see, it’s easy to start taking better care of your skin today. You don’t need a brand new skin care regimen to get started. Simply take small steps each day and add in new Atopalm products as needed. Pretty soon you’ll start seeing a difference, and loving your skin will become part of who you are.

Healthy Skin as a Lifestyle

Have you ever started using a new skin care product or regimen and become frustrated that your skin issues don’t disappear as quickly as you hoped? What about when new skin concerns pop up and you’re left wondering why?

 

 

The truth is, healthy skin is 100% linked to a healthy lifestyle. No single skin care product or even regimen can create healthy skin; it can only support a healthy lifestyle while topically targeting specific concerns.

So, what does a healthy lifestyle to support skin health look like? Here are four easy things you can start doing today to support skin health from the inside out.

Hydrate
Yes, we’ve all been told to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day, but is that still the recommendation? While it’s still the official base number, more research is showing that other types of liquids can count toward your daily hydration. That means milk, low-sugar or fresh juice, and even tea and coffee can count toward your hydration goals each day.

Not only that, but 64 ounces of hydrating liquid is simply the minimum amount required for basic health needs. Some experts recommend drinking between one half ounce and one ounce per pound of body weight, while others say you should shoot for an even 100 ounces per day.

Regardless of the number you set for yourself, drinking hydrating liquids throughout the day is one of the easiest way to support skin (and overall) health by keeping it moisturized and allowing the skin to function as it should.

Exercise
Working out is good for body, soul, and skin! We took an in-depth look at how exercise supports skin health in another post, but here’s a quick glimpse at the highlights.

Exercise boosts circulation, which improves skin texture, tone, and clarity. It helps the skin maintain a healthy level of oxygen, and can even help support youthful qualities like firmness.

Sweat caused by exercise helps push toxins, dirt, and debris from the pores. It is naturally clarifying, just as long as you bathe soon after exercising and don’t allow those toxins to sit on your skin for too long.

Sleep
Catching some Z’s is actually essential to skin health. While we sleep, our body uses that time to heal itself — whether that means closing a cut or repairing inner damage.

We all know that we don’t look our best after a poor night’s sleep. Eyes are dark and puffy, skin is dull and dehydrated, and your skin concerns like eczema and acne may even be worse. Allowing your skin that time to heal is one of the best ways to improve skin health and appearance.

Eat
You don’t need to eat more, just better! Skin thrives (as does the rest of your body) when you fill it with vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. There’s a reason why so many antioxidant vitamins are added to topical skin care products: your skin needs them to function and look its best!

As you can see, following a healthy lifestyle is as important to your skin as it is to your overall quality of life. If you begin changing your bad eating, sleeping, and exercising habits, you’ll soon find that you’re seeing clearer, brighter, and healthier skin.

Real Barrier Eye Contour Cream Review – The Eye Cream for Life

The eye cream for life

bsother
아이크림 20대 때부터 꾸준히 사용중인데 비싼 것도 많고 종류도 다양해서 이것저것 사용했는데 리얼베리어 가성비 완전 갑이고 넘나 좋은 것!! 소량으로도 촉촉하게 흡수되는 느낌도 좋고 피부장벽도 보호할 수 있어서 눈가, 입가, 콧등에 꾸준히 사용하고 있어요. 엄마와 함께 사용중인데 고농축이지만 무겁게 느껴지지 않고 산뜻한 향도 마음에 들어요. 눈 주위에 저자극 고보습 관리를 저렴하게 할 수 있다는 점에서 또 추천할만해요. 인생아이크림 등극!!

I’ve been using eye cream constantly since my twenties. There are so many expensive brands of eye cream in the market that I’ve tried almost everything. Real Barrier was the best in terms of cost-effectiveness!!

It does its job with just a dab. It has a smooth absorbing texture and a protective skin barrier function that I use it regularly around my eyes and mouth as well as the bridge of my nose. I use the eye cream with my mother. It is a highly-enriched formula, but it doesn’t feel heavy.

I also like the refreshing scent of this eye cream. I would recommend this item because it is an affordable way to get hypoallergenic & intensive moisture treatment around the eyes. I crown this item as the eye cream for life!!

Real Barrier Eye Contour Cream Review


바르고나면 눈가가 쫀쫀해진 느낌이 들어요 +_+
★★★★★

The skin around my eyes felt firm and bouncy after applying the cream. +_+

bsdots원래 귀찮아서 아이크림을 잘 안발랐었어요!
바르나 안바르나 별 차이가 없는 것 같아서 더더욱이 안발랐었는데
의외로 리얼베리어 아이크림이 이렇게 좋을 줄 몰랐어요+_+
피부 진정에만 주로 효과가 있다고 생각했는데 눈가와 입가 같은 얇은 피부에
쫀쫀하게 탄력이 느끼게 해주는 제형때문인지 좀더 아이크림에 적합한 제형인 것같고,
양도 조금씩 나와서  조절하기 쉬워서 좋네요!
사진처럼 작은 점선처럼 콕콕 찍어서 톡톡 바르면 쫀쫀해지는 느낌들고 좋습니다 ;))
한번에 쓰는 양도 너무 적어서 오래 쓸것같아요 굿 b
리얼베리어 진짜 사랑입니다 ㅋㅋㅋ

I usually don’t use eye cream because it’s too much work! Besides, I felt it didn’t make any difference whether I use it or not.

But was I surprised! I had no idea that Real Barrier Eye Cream would be this wonderful +_+

I thought it would be effective mainly for soothing the skin, but it made the thin areas of my skin, around the eyes and mouth, bouncy with elasticity. The dense formula felt more appropriate for an eye cream. The narrowed tip of the tube made it easy to adjust the amount of cream!

Apply small amount of cream in a dotted line as shown in the picture, then dab the area. You’ll feel your skin getting firm and bouncy. ; ))

The amount of cream needed for one application is so small that the tube will last long. That’s good!

Real Barrier, it’s perfect love! lol

Real Barrier Extreme Cream Review

최악의 건조함 속에서 익스트림크림 덕분에 살았어요
★★★★★

The perfect item to protect my skin from the worst dryness!

민감성 피부인지도 몰랐던 저인데, 딱 보니 제가 딱 민감성 피부의 표본이더라구요

특히나 요즘들어 추운 날씨에는 트고, 가렵고, 울긋불긋 트러블까지…

I didn’t even know I have sensitive skin. But now I know I am a prime example of someone with sensitive skin. On cold days, like the ones we’ve been having recently, my skin cracks, itches, gets red and even breaks out.

익스트림 크림 좋다는 말 주위에서 들어보고 사용해봤는데 진정효과와 촉촉한 마무리감까지 덕 좀 보고있네요

수분 장벽이라는 수분크림 사용해본 적 있는데 오전에 바르고 나면 금새 오후에는 건조해지더라구요,

하지만 익스트림 사용하고 나서부터는 오후에 건조함을 느껴본 적은 없는 것 같아요

I heard from people around me that Real Barrier Extreme Cream is good for sensitive skins, so I gave it a try. From its soothing effect to its moist finishing touch, I’m really getting a lot out of this cream.

I’ve tried other moisturizing creams with moisture barrier function, but they didn’t have lasting effect. My skin already felt dry in the afternoon after the morning application.

I don’t think my skin ever felt dry in the afternoon since I’ve been using Real Barrier Extreme Cream.

이번 해외 출장에 익스트림 크림 기내용 지퍼백에 넣어서 다녀왔어요

평소에 데이와 나이트 케어 모두 사용했던 제품이었기에 촉촉함과 순함을 알고 있었지만

최악의 기내 건조함으로부터 확실히 벗어날 수 있게 해준 똑똑한 아이템이라는 걸 다시 한번 느끼게 해 줬네요!

I took Real Barrier Extreme Cream in my carry-on zipper bag for my recent overseas business trip. I was familiar with its moisturizing effect and mildness since I’ve used it regularly for both day care and night care. I realized once again that this is the perfect item to protect my skin from the worst in-flight dryness!

저처럼 요즘 극한 건조함과 예민함을 가지신 분에게 추천해드려요 🙂

I highly recommend this product for those who have extremely dry and sensitive skin like I have.

How to Get Healthy Skin: Exercise

We stand behind our products at Atopalm. We genuinely believe that our ingredients create the best skin care products for dry, sensitive skin. However, we also acknowledge that healthy skin doesn’t rely solely on topical skin care. Truly healthy skin comes from full-body health. It’s a lifestyle that leads to clear, beautiful skin — not just exceptional skin care.

One way to achieve a healthier body and healthier skin is to exercise regularly. We all know how important exercise is to physical and mental health, but here are three specific ways it will help you achieve healthier skin as well.

Sleep
Exercise is proven to improve sleep — both the ability to fall asleep and enter into the most restful stages of sleep. Better sleep means your body is able to spend more time healing and renewing itself, including skin. Better sleep = better skin. It’s as simple as that!

Oxygen
Exercise, specifically aerobic/cardio exercise, boosts your oxygen levels. That’s how your skin gets that gorgeous glow after working out! More important that simply looking more beautiful, though, higher oxygen levels allows the body to product more collagen, which is what keeps your skin firm, elastic, and supple. Exercise actually promotes a more youthful appearance!

Circulation
Perhaps the most important (for skin) result of exercise is increased circulation. Circulation is key when it comes to healthy skin! Increased circulation means better nourishment, as well as more efficient removal of toxins, oils, and dirt from your pores via sweat. It’s a great way to slowly but surely heal acne-prone skin.

If you do have acne, don’t shy away from sweat-inducing exercise! That sweat is pushing out the “bad stuff” and giving your skin a chance to heal. Simply be sure to shower ASAP after exercise, and follow your regular skin care routine after that unless otherwise directed by your dermatologist.

So now you have one more great reason to exercise regularly. Join us this year in renewing our skin from the inside out by choosing to lead a healthy lifestyle!
