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 Trend Spotlight: Jamsu

2016 was a big year for Korean beauty trends, from sheet masks to cushion foundation. And you can’t forget about BB Creams! But one trend to emerge late this year is gaining popularity thanks to its strange application and hit-or-miss results.

The trend? Jamsu. The word is roughly translated as diving or submerging, which gives you a little hint as to what Jamsu is all about. In a nutshell, Jamsu begins with you applying your normal skin care and base makeup products. Obviously, it’s suggested that you follow a Korean skin care routine, but any routine will do.

Some Jamsu users apply their eye shadow but save their eyeliner and brow pencil for later, while others apply all their makeup. The choice is yours! Then it’s time to start your Jamsu routine. First, you take a beauty blender or brush and gently apply an even layer of baby powder containing talc.

Now, this is where Jamsu gets a little controversial. Talc is a known carcinogen and can cause breathing issues. However, the amount of talc found in mainstream baby powders is minimal. It’s up to you if the health risks are worth the results of Jamsu!

After the baby powder is applied to your face, you’re ready for the grand finale. You’re going to plunge your face into a bowl full of cold water! Some suggest ice water, others say very cold tap water. You’ll keep your face submerged for 30 seconds, then gently pat (don’t rub!) skin dry.

If all has been done correctly, your face makeup will be set, and your skin will be smoother, softer, and more mattified than ever before. Many people say your post-Jamsu face is the perfect canvas for flawless eye makeup application. However, others day it makes their face looked and feel caked and more wrinkled than usual.

Moist and Mild Cleansing Water

bs_1 bs_2




















강한 자외선과 외부 유해물질로 인해

자극 받은 피부에는 자극을 최소화 할 수 있는
순한 클렌징 워터가 좋다고해요

They say that mild cleansing water that can

minimize stimulus to skin that has been stimulated by

strong UV rays and toxic substances is the best











리얼 베리어 클렌징 워터는 간편하고 깔끔하게 사용하기 편리한

펌핑형 제품으로 꼭 네일샵에서 사용하는 리무버처럼 생겼어요!

Real Barrier Cleansing Water is a pumping-type product that is simple, neat, and convenient to use,

And it looks just like removers used in nail shops!











사용방법은 화장솜에 적당량을 덜어 얼굴 전체를 부드럽게 닦아 주세요

For use, take an adequate amount on to a cosmetic cotton pad and apply it smoothly over your whole face.

이렇게 입구에 올려두고 두세 번 정도 펌핑한 후에

적당량을 덜었다 싶으면

Place it like this on the mouth of the bottle, pump it two or three times

and when you have an adequate amount







부드럽게 닦아주세요

smoothly clean with it.

파운데이션, 립스틱, 아이섀도우, 펜슬 아이라이너,

붓펜 아이라이너, 마스카라 바른 후에 지워봤어요

I tried removing foundation, lipstick, eyeshadow, pencil eyeliner,

brush pen eyeliner, and mascara.











첫 번째 클렌징 한 후에요

클렌징과 동시에 보습효과로 약해진 피부장벽을 강화해줘서

피부를 튼튼하게 해주며 추가 세안 없이 피부를 깨끗하게 해줘요

This is after the first cleansing.

A moisturizing effect along with the cleansing strengthens the weakened skin barrier

so that the skin becomes stronger and cleaner without any additional wash up







살짝 찝찝해서 한 번 더 닦아낸 사진이에요 깨끗하게 잘 지워졌어요!

향은 살짝 있는데 좋지는 않았지만 B사 쇠냄새 보단 괜찮았어요

This is a picture of wiping once more as I felt slightly icky. It was neatly removed!

It has a slight scene that isn’t good, but it’s better than the steel smell of B.











클렌징 후 더러워진 화장솜이에요!

This is the dirty cosmetic cotton pad after cleansing!

술 마신 날이나 정말 화장 지우기 귀찮은 날 물 세안이 필요 없는

순하고 촉촉한 아토팜 리얼 베리어 클렌징 워터 추천하고 싶어요!

On a day you had a drink or you feel it’s troublesome to remove your make-up,

I recommend using mild and moist Atopalm Real Barrier Cleansing Water that doesn’t require wash-up with water!

Mild and Moist, Cleansing Water is So Good!

클렌징워터 순하고 촉촉하니 넘나좋아요!

Mild and Moist, Cleansing Water is So Good!


진짜 촉촉해서 사용하는데 스킨바르는 느낌인줄 급 착각할정도에요+_+

It’s really moist, so it feels like your using skin toner+_+

뽀득뽀득보단 촉촉함으로. 느껴지는데

근데 또 신기한게 화장지우고 얼굴 만져보면 뽀득뽀득한 깔끔한 느낌까지 약간 있어요+_+b

It feels moist than squeaky clean

and astonishingly, if you touch your face after removing your make-up, it even has a squeaky clean feeling+_+b

기초BB + 눈화장 + 입술로 간단하게 한 다레의 데일리

귀찮으니까 저도 아토팜 리얼베리어 클렌징워터 사용해줬어요 화장지우기 귀찮,,

It’s troublesome so I used Atopalm Real Barrier Cleansing Water. It’s troublesome to remove make-up,,

보여요? 다 가려논 내 피부가 다시 말끔해져버렸어요… 뭔가 슬프기도하고 ㅁ8

Can you see? My covered skin has become totally clear again… It’s somehow sad in a way ㅁ8

화장솜에 폭풍 촉촉하게 만들어서 사용하는데

지워지는게 눈에 보이니까 참 뿌듯하기도 하고 ㅋㅋㅋ

I moisten cosmetic cotton pads for use

And I feel pretty good because I see it remove the make-up

근데 깨끗함을 유지하려고 화장솜을 좀 여러개 사용하게 된다는 소심한 단점도 있어요

But there is a small disadvantage of having to use several cosmetic cotton pads to maintain cleanliness

앤드 힘조절 잘못하면 요리저리 튀어요 ㅠ 주의하셔야합니다.

And if you fail to control your strength, it might splatter here and there, so you have to careful.

근데 화장솜 보다 내 피부가 중요하쟈나어..

But your skin is more important than cosmetic cotton pads..

Atopalm Real Barrier Intro Serum Review

역시 아토팜, 요즘 계절에 딱 맞게 순하고 가벼워요^^

ATOPALM Real barrier, as expected, is perfectly soft and light on my skin for the season.


아토팜 리얼 베리어 인트로 세럼 사용 후기 입니다!
My review for Atopalm Real Barrier Intro Serum!

다들 그러시겠지만, 건조하고 가렵고 예민한 피부로 다양한 브랜드를 써본 후

가장 트러블 없이 특히 보습력이 뛰어나고 순해서, 빨간 뚜껑일 때부터 오랫동안 애정하고 아끼며 써왔는데요.

I’ve been using and in love with this serum for a long time since the time it had a red cap in previous design version. I found this serum is “very” moisturizing and gentle, and it hasn’t caused any stinging, itching, redness or any allergic skin reaction even on my dry, over-sensitive, and easily-get-itchy skin with other brands.

작년~올 겨울에 특히 얼굴이 너무 건조하고 홍조가 심해져서

화장은 아예 못하고 리얼베리어 크림만 가방에 넣어서 수시로 발라주었는데

날이 좀 더워지다보니 보다 산뜻한 제품도 필요했는데 딱인 제품~

Since the last two winters were harsh, I couldn’t even imagine using other makeups for causing the skin reactions like dryness and redness, rather I used only Real Barrier Cream whenever I needed. For season becoming warmer, this serum is the very “rain” I need so much!


세안 후 첫 단계에 바르는 인트로 세럼으로,

보통 우리가 알고 있는 퍼스트 세럼으로 사용하면 되고요.

세안 후, 바로 첫 단계에 2~3회 펌핑하여 발라주면 되어요~

After cleansing your face, pump 2 or 3 times onto your fingertips and gently apply on your face. Same as other first serums. Easy Peasy!

용량은 40ml / 한 손에 쏙 들어오는 크기의 펌프.

펌프라 아무래도 더 공기접촉도 적고 위생적으로 쓸 수 있어서 가장 선호하는 타입인 것도 맘에 들었어요.

아무래도 여름이라 더 신경쓰여서요!

40ml of amount, Perfect size for my little hand.

I like the way they designed this in a pumping container. It is more hygienic with less contact to air. Very thoughtful for the use in the summer time, I think.

제조일자는 다른 제품들처럼 용기 하단에 잘 찍혀있고요.

Easy to find the manufacture date on the bottom of the container.

유효 성분이 피부 각 층으로 가볍게 흡수되어 촘촘한 바탕 피부로 정돈하고,

스킨 부스팅 효과로 다음 단계 흡수와 효과를 한층 높여준다고 하니 밀림없이 다져주는 제품 같아요.
I’ve felt that the serum gets absorbed into the layers of skin easily and prepares my skin with boosting effect for the next step. It seemed the next makeups on the skin were accepted way better with this serum applied first.
히아루론산, 판테놀, 마데카소사이드, 알란토인 등 피부 진정 보호 성분과
특허 복합 세라마이드 함유도 마음에 듭니다.

Among all others, I really like the fact that this serum contains many skin-soothers such as hyaluronic acids, Panthenol, Madecassoside, and allatonin, especially Complex Ceramide



손등에 먼저 발라봅니다.
흰색을 띄는 약간의 투명함이 느껴지는 제형으로
수분감이 많으면서 스킨 – 모이스춰 중간 제형쯤 됩니다.
끈적임이나 오일리함은 없되 스킨처럼 물 타입은 아니에요.

I applied this on the back of my hand first.

The serum is white and transparent and feels very rich in moisture. I think it is between a skin product and a moisture product. But it is definitely not watery, sticky or oily.


펴발라보면 한층 투명한 느낌이 들고요.
일반적인 에센스나 세럼 제형과 가장 비슷,
바른 후에도 건조하지 않도록 어느 정도 잡아주는게
스킨이나 물 타입 세럼과의 차이점 입니다.

When spread, it gets more transparent. It’s just like other general essence or serums. But the moisture doesn’t dry up like other skin or watery serum but stays longer on the skin.


짠 피부결 사이사이 잘 촉촉하게 보습되고요.
향은 약간 강하지 않은 풀향? 같은게 느껴져요.
바른 후에도 어느 정도 보습력이 있지만 가볍다는 점이 장점.


It moisturizes and nourishes well and evenly
The ‘grassy’ smell is fresh and soft.
And the moisture lasts long after application with the feeling of softness.
















얼굴 세안 직후 – 사용 중 – 후
Right after cleansing face – Application – After Application
아무래도 날씨가 많이 더워져서 기존 장벽 강화 크림은 좀 무거운 감이 있었는데
세안 후 바로 리얼베리어 인트로 세럼 바르면 아주 가볍고,
자극이 없이 수분을 채워줘서 속당김이 사라져서 좋고요.

As it gets warmer, the Real Barrier Intense Moisture Cream seemed a little thick on skins.

When the Real Barrier Intro Serum was applied, my skin felt soft and moisturizing without an irritation. The tightening feeling on my skin also disappeared.

피부가 얇고 따끔하고, 홍조와 건선이 잘 생기는 민감 피부에 특히 좋고
아주 리치한 타입이 아니기 때문에 어떤 피부 타입이건 쓰기 좋을 것 같아요.
유수분 밸런스로 잘 다줘준 느낌이라 다음 단계로 선크림 발라도 안 당길 것 같고
저녁 때는 아무래도 건성이라 세럼만으로는 조금 당김이 있기 때문에
리얼베리어 수분 크림을 추가하여 발라주었습니다.
I want to recommend this serum for people who have thin skins, feel stingy with other products, or have sensitive skins which are prone to redness and dryness. Since it is not too rich, I think it also goes well on any skin type. I think even sun-cream can be put right on the serum, without feeling tight on skin. I used this serum and then the Real Barrier Moisture Cream together in the evening since skin felt drier at that time.
추가 보습은 피부 타입에 맞게 해주는걸 추천하고,
이번에 릴리프 젤 크림도 출시되었기 때문에 가벼운것 원하시거나 지성에도 맞겠네요~

I think you may choose an additional moisturizing product which fits your skin type. You may try the new Relief Gel Cream if you want something light and for your oily skin

피부겉, 속 모두 채워주고, 가볍고, 밀림없는 첫 단계 세럼으로 딱이에요!
무엇보다 자극없고 순한 점이 아주 만족스럽습니당 ^^ 역시 아토팜~

Easily absorbed onto an outer and inner layer of your skin, light, and without thick feelings! It’s perfect as a first stage serum. Above all, I like best its mildness on my skin without any irritation.

Atopalm Real Barrier Essence Mist Review

촉촉함이 달라요~~~리얼베리어 에센스 미스트^^

This one is different in moisturizing, Real Barrier Essence Mist!






짜쟌!!!  이미 유명한 브랜드라 말하면 입아플 정도인데~~뒷북치며 이제서야 경험했어요.ㅎㅎ

내 피부 수분 빼앗아가는 일반 수분미스트말고~~영양감과 수분감을 부여하면서 수분을 잡아줄 수 있는 에센스 미스트 찾고있었거든요^^

아토팜 워낙 순한 제품으로 유명해서 홈페이지 가입하고 부랴부랴 주문했어요ㅋㅋ


This is so widespread brand, but I happen to experience only now. LOL

I have been looking for a “real” essence mist that moisturizes long enough and nourishes the skin at the same time. There were too many disappointing products, not living to its claim.

리얼베리어 모이스처크림이랑 같이 주문했죵!!ㅋㅋ이건 머 샘플보소>ㅅ< 방판부럽지 않아요ㅋㅋ

피부장벽강화에 도움을 수는 수분방패!!!영양층과 수분층이 나뉘어져있어서 사용전에 꼭 흔들어 사용하라고 설명되어 있어요ㅎㅎ

I ordered the Real Barrier Moisture Cream with the Real Barrier Essence Mist at the same time. Wow, so many freebies ☺, Better than buying at door-to-door sale. This is like a shield on your skin, which keeps your moisture. Don’t forget to shake it enough before using it, since the layers of nourishment and moisture are separately stored in the spray.












얼굴에 뿌린 사진은 부끄러워서 손으로 대체할게용~ㅋㅋ

뿌리기전->뿌리고나서->흡수후 요렇게 순서예요ㅎ

뿌리고나서 저 촉촉함 보이세요??ㅋㅋ완전 촉촉하고 안개분사아닌데도 꽤 넓게 분사가 되요.

분사력도 맘에 들고 촉촉함이 진짜 끈적임없이 상쾌한 느낌이예요 ㅋ거기다 흡수도 빨라요~

손등에 뿌리고 몇 번 톡톡 쳐주니까 금새 흡수되고 촉촉함만 남아요 ㅋ

여름에도 끈적임 걱정없이 또 건정피부뿐 아니라 저처럼 지복합성피부도 걱정없이 사용할 수 있는 제형이예요

무향이라 더 좋아요ㅋㅋ아무래도 향기나는 화장품은 첨가물이 하나라도 더 들어간거잖아요ㅠ

얼굴에 사용하는 제품만은 향기 댓츠노노!!!ㅋㅋㅋ

아토팜제품 첨 사용해봤는데 만족스럽구요!!앞으로도 요 미스트는 꾸준히 사용할렵니다.^^

I am kind of too shy to show my face, instead, I will show you my hand.

Before Spraying – Sprayed – Absorbed












Can you see that moisturizing effect on my hand? So rich in moisture and sprayed wide even for non-mist spray. I feel so fresh, with no stickiness at all, and like how it sprays. And it is absorbed so quickly in to my skin. I applied a good amount and tapped the spot a few times. And wow watery look disappears so quick and only leaves the rich moisture on the skin. It doesn’t feel sticky even in summer.

So those with dry skin or oily-complex skin like mine can use this with no worry. I like this because it is non-fragrant. There may be more additives for the fragrance, so no fragrance for the products used on my face! It’s my first time trying Atopalm’s product. THUMBS UP!! For sure, I will keep using this Real Barrier Essence Mist.

The Biggest K-Beauty Trends of 2016

cleansingwaterThe Korean Beauty market (otherwise known as K-Beauty) is changing the beauty industry around the world. Former naysayers have tried the 10-step Korean skincare routine and seen firsthand the transformative power of treating their skin with care, respect, and gentle ingredients.

Now, more and more people are paying attention to K-Beauty and how they can take Korean skincare ideals and apply them to their own skincare routine. Here’s a look at four of the biggest K-Beauty skincare trends and how they can be introduced into your daily beauty regimen.

  1. Cleansing Oils
    A cleansing oil is a non-comedogenic oil blend designed to melt away makeup and debris while nourishing and moisturizing the skin. Nothing will leave your skin as clean as a cleansing oil will! It’s used in addition to — not instead of — your normal skin care cleanser, so it’s very easy to add into your routine without replacing a current favorite.
  2. Water-Free Cleansing
    Another cleansing trend to come from Korean beauty is a water-free cleansing regimen. Special moisturizing cleansers, like our Real Barrier Cleansing Water, is able to provide all the benefits of traditional cleansing without exposing your skin to the harsh possibilities of water. Any skin type can benefit from this cleansing option, but it’s especially beneficial for dry skin, sensitive skin, or those with hard water at home.
  3. Sheet Masks
    One K-Beauty trend you’ve most certainly heard of is sheet masks. These pre-soaked sheets are saturated with concentrated skin care ingredients to give your skin a boost. They are usually inexpensive, gentle enough for daily use, and widely available. Bonus: some are even patterned, which really ups your #sheetmaskselfie game.
  4. Moisture Matters
    One interesting trend to come from Korean beauty this year is to pay more attention to how the skin is hydrated, rather than just caring about it being hydrated in general. Some brands changed the water base of their products to filtered or even mineral water, while Atopalm emphasized the restorative and deeply hydrating benefits of our patented MLE. One Korean celebrity says her trick is to apply skin care moisturizer to her face within five seconds of cleansing.

Whether or not you add any K-Beauty tips to your skin care regimen, one thing’s certain: the Korean beauty industry is seriously impacting the beauty world at large. Atopalm is proud to be the #1 dry skin care brand in South Korea for 10 years and running, and we’re excited to see what our peers add to the beauty world next!


Eat Right for Your Skin Type: Combination Skin

Used with permission.
Photo used with permission.

All month long, we’ve been taking a look at how to eat right for your skin type. Although we believe strongly in our products, we also know that health is holistic, and that even skin needs to be taken care of with a healthy diet.

We’ve touched on the main skin types already (dry skin, sensitive skin, and oily/acne-prone skin) but what if you have combination skin? Combination skin is any skin type which has two (or more!) areas of differing skin types. You can be normal on your cheeks, but oily on your T-zone; dry on your chin and nose, but acne-prone elsewhere.

Combination skin is tricky because you don’t want to overload one skin type while nourishing another. What it comes down to is — drum roll please — eating a healthy, well-balanced diet! Shocking, I know.

But in all seriousness, combination skin types should be supported by diet. Eating foods high in healthy fats like avocado and nuts will support healthy hydration, while eating phytonutrients found in produce will encourage healthy skin function.

The real trick to keeping combination skin healthy and happy? Moisture. Believe it or not, all skin types need hydration to function, whether it’s the obvious choice of dry skin all the way down to oily skin. Dehydrated skin (different from dry skin) is suffering skin, so keeping your face moisturized every day is the key to success.

Our patented MLE formulas are superb for all skin types, including fussy sensitive skin and even skin with conditions like eczema and rosacea. MLE is an advanced ingredient that’s able to mimic the lipid layer of healthy skin. What does this mean for you? Your face cream tricks your skin into feeling and acting like healthy skin.

After a couple weeks of regular use, your skin will act healthy all on its own, with reinforcement from our formulas. They encourage hydration, protect against external damage, and allow your skin to get back to taking care of skin issues like patches of dryness, acne blemishes, and oily T-zone — you know, combination skin type issues.

We don’t mean to insinuate that our MLE products are a save-all. They should still be combined with healthy diet and beauty habits like using clean makeup brushes and cleansing skin at night. But for the rest of it? MLE is like nothing you’ve used before.
