Korean Skin Care Regimen Step-by-Step Guide, Step One: Pre-Cleansing

The Korean skin care routine has taken the world by storm, and there’s no going back once you’ve tried it! It is a truly a superior way to care for your skin. You can see and feel the difference when you take a little more time to do what’s right!

Some people find the K-Beauty skin care regimen overwhelming at first, so we’ll be featuring a step-by-step guide over the coming weeks to explain how and why each step matters.

Let’s get things started with step one: Real Barrier Cleansing Water.

Cleansing Water is Atopalm’s version of an oil-based cleanser. It is a cleansing formula designed to be used without the use of tap water, which makes it excellent for very sensitive skin that doesn’t respond well to harsh tap waters.

Cleansing Water actually uses Atopalm’s MLE skin-barrier formula to cleanse skin, while a natural moisturizing compound replenishes moisture even as you cleanse! Panthenol, allantoin, and madecassoside make up Real Barrier’s three-calming complex, used to soothe and comfort skin.

Cleansing Water melts away impurities and debris, preparing skin for the rest of your skin care routine. It can also be used in the evening prior to your foaming cleanser to gently remove makeup without the use of harsh makeup removing formulas.

Finally, if your skin is of the most sensitive variety, you can use Cleansing Water in lieu of traditional cleansers. If your skin does not tolerate foaming cleansers or washing with water, Cleansing Water is the answer to your cleansing needs.

As you can see, Cleansing Water is a versatile product that’s great to have in your arsenal, whether or not you follow the entire Korean skin care routine.

How to Remove Makeup for Healthier Skin

You’ve heard it before: cleanse skin morning and evening to optimize health and beauty. But did you know makeup removal should actually be separate from cleansing, and is just as important?

Leaving makeup on overnight, or applying makeup over yesterday’s makeup, is one of the leading causes of breakouts and skin irritation. Even the healthiest makeups aren’t meant to be left on your skin for days without removal.

For dry and sensitive skin, leaving makeup on means that your already compromised lipid layer is further damaged. It also means that your moisturizing skin care may not absorb as readily, which means your skin doesn’t get what it needs, and you waste your time and money on moisturizers that aren’t providing their full benefits!

In order to protect your skin’s health and beauty, and get the most out of your skin care products, makeup removal is absolutely essential. Here’s the best way to remove makeup at the end of each day.

Begin with your Atopalm foaming cleanser. Pump a generous amount into your hand, and massage the rich, foamy texture into your face using circular motions. Massage for a full minute, then rinse with tepid water and pat (don’t rub!) dry.

After washing your face, you’re ready to remove makeup with Cleansing Water. While it’s true that our foaming cleansers do a lot to loosen and break down makeup, there will still be trace amounts on your face. In addition, our foaming cleansers are not meant to remove eye makeup, while Real Barrier Cleansing Water is the best eye makeup remover you can use!

Apply Cleansing Water to a cotton pad, and massage with circular motions over the entire face, including the eye area. Repeat as necessary until all traces of makeup are removed.

Cleansing Water moisturizes as it removes makeup and cleans the skin. Most people prefer to apply a face cream after using Cleansing Water since the skin is perfectly prepped for maximum skin care benefits; however, it is completely up to you, since your skin will likely feel great after the Cleansing Water alone.

After you implement a true makeup removal step in your skin care regimen, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without removing your makeup at night. Your skin will show its thanks with improved health, comfort, radiance, and beauty!

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

 

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!

 

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!

bs1 bs2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Real Barrier Cleansing Foam Review

촉촉하고 부드러운 크림으로 세안하세요~!

Cleanse your face with the moist and soft Real Barrier Cleansing Foam!

bs1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

촉촉한 클렌징폼!

피부장벽관리! 세안부터 시작하세요~!!

거품이 잘 안난아길래 제가 한번 내봤어욤~~

A moist cleansing foam!

Skin barrier management begins with deep cleansing~!!

For those who are unfamiliar with this creamy cleansing foam, let me show you the best way to use it~~

bs2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

우선 클렌징폼을 손바닥에 짠다음~

First, squeeze some cleansing foam on your palm.

bs3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

물을 조금 부어줘요

Pour some water over the cleansing foam.

bs4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

그리고 비벼주면 거품이 나는데 이때 손바닥을 살짝 오목~하게 해서 비벼주면 더 잘난다는 사실!!

거품이 부족하다싶으면 한번더!! 물을 조금 부어서 비벼주면~~!!

Then, rub your hands together to produce foam. Here’s a tip for making richer lathering foam! When rubbing your hands together, slightly curve your palms instead of flattening them!!

If you think you need more foam, add a dab of water and rub again~~!!

bs5

짜잔~!!

부드럽고 생크림같은 풍성한 거품을 만날 수 있어요~ ♡

Violà!! You’ll get soft, creamy and rich foam~♡
