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.

Get Glowing with Anti-Aging Skin Care

Have you ever thought that you couldn’t use anti-aging skin care if you also have dry, sensitive skin? If so, think again! Just because your skin needs powerful anti-aging care doesn’t mean that the care you receive needs to be harsh on your skin. Enter Atopalm — the anti-aging skin care answer for sensitive and dry skin types.

Because proper moisture in and of itself can help diminish basic signs of aging like rough skin, flaking skin, fine lines, and dullness, all Atopalm products have a mild element of anti-aging care. But there are two Atopalm products in particular that I will highlight today for their in-depth anti-aging skin care actions.

Moisturizing Skin Revitalizing Complex is from our classic MLE line and was our original anti-aging skin care product. On top of moisturizing MLE, it uses peptides, antioxidant vitamins, and an activator called K6PC5 to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, laugh lines, and other visible signs of aging.

 

 

RBextremecreamReal Barrier Extreme Cream is from our new Real Barrier line. Like Moisturizing Skin Revitalizing Complex, it also uses MLE as well as hyaluronic acid to target visible signs of aging first with moisture.

A unique ingredient called Idealift firms sagging skin to create a more youthful tone and texture while Real Barrier’s Three-Calming Complex ensures that the skin is left feeling calm and comfortable.

 

With these two great products to choose from, it’s easy to get the anti-aging results you desire without compromising the quality and gentleness of your skin care. Shop Atopalm for all your anti-aging skin care needs!

 

How, When, and Why to Switch to Atopalm 130+

Most Atopalm customers find our basic MLE and Real Barrier lines to be the perfect way to moisturize and protect their skin. Some customers, however, feel like even our best-selling MLE formulas aren’t enough for their extra dry, sensitive skin. That’s where Atopalm 130+ comes in.

Atopalm 130+ is formulated with the same MLE that we’re known for, except it features a 30% higher concentration of this skin barrier-boosting ingredient. Think of it as the richest (but still non-greasy!) skin care moisturizer you’ve ever used…but better.

So, how do you know if you should make the switch to Atopalm 130+? Really, the choice is yours — 130+ can be used by anyone who desires a richer skin care moisturizer. But if you’re not sure if you should try it yourself, here are some things to consider:

Why should you make the switch? If your skin still feels dry, tight, or irritated after using your regular moisturizer, you need to up your care with Atopalm 130+. Your skin should never feel dry, tight, itchy, or painful in any way. Not even after cleansing! So if your skin is still uncomfortable after moisturizing, it’s time to look at these more intensive formulas.

Another time to seek out the help of Atopalm 130+ is if you have a dry skin care condition such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, hormonal imbalance, or discomfort caused by environmental or dermatological irritants.

When should you make the switch? Well, right now! If you feel like your skin needs more help, don’t delay. The one thing you should wait for is a chance to talk with your dermatologist or doctor if you feel that you have underlying issues causing your skin care concerns. Other than that, there’s no time like the present.

How should you make the switch? Atopalm 130+ offers two formulas: Concentrated Intensive Cream, and Concentrated Intensive Facial Moisturizer with Panthenol. Depending on which part of your body is experiencing extra dry, sensitive skin, you may want to try one or both of these products. Here’s a look at the differences:

conce_intenseConcentrated Intensive Cream is more similar to our flagship product, Intensive Moisturizing Cream. It offers a hefty dose of MLE and other proven ingredients to deeply replenish moisture and comfort to skin anywhere on the face or body.

You can replace your current moisturizer with Concentrated Intensive Cream, or you can use it as a “spot treatment” for areas of the face or body which are more prone to dryness, such as around the lips, on the elbows and knees, or anywhere that’s prone to become dry and uncomfortable.

  Atopalm 130+ Concentrated Intensive Facial Moisturizer with Panthenol

Concentrated Intensive Facial Moisturizer with Panthenol is designed to target dryness

on the face. It, of course, utilizes MLE to restore hydration, but it also harnesses the soothing power of panthenol to deeply comfort irritated skin. It can be used daily by the driest, most sensitive skin types. Or it can be used on a short-term basis for skin that’s healing from in-office skin care procedures, or irritation caused by the environment.

You can read more about these great products on the website to determine whether they’re the right skin care choice for you. No matter which Atopalm products you choose, remember you’ll always receive free shipping on orders of $50 or more and a free sample in every package. Happy shopping!

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
