ATOPALM Sheet Masks Are Here!

It’s the new year’s miracle you’ve been waiting for: ATOPALM sheet masks are here! These K-beauty must-haves are infused with everything your skin needs, so what are you waiting for? Pick your favorite and get going!

Our sheet masks are infused with deeply moisturizing, soothing, and revitalizing ingredients. As you can expect from ATOPALM, our mask formulas feature Multi-Lamellar Emulsion and are designed with dry, sensitive skin in mind, but can be used on any skin type to support the skin’s barrier function.

Real Barrier Extreme Cream Mask uses panthenol, madecassoside, and allantoin to moisturize and calm irritated skin.

Dual ceramides and hyaluronic acid combine to provide long-lasting hydration to the skin while vitamin E conditions skin and provides anti-aging antioxidant protection against external damage. After use, the skin feels moisturized, comforted, and even more elastic!

Real Barrier Aqua Soothing Ampoule Mask is a two-step mask treatment. Like Extreme Cream Mask, this mask is likewise infused with panthenol, madecassoside, allantoin, and hyaluronic acid for their deeply hydrating and comforting benefits.

Aqua Soothing Ampoule Mask then differs itself from Extreme Cream Mask with enriched bamboo charcoal to purify skin that’s been exposed to pollutants or is prone to acne breakouts. After the sheet mask is applied, a concentrated ampoule cream is used to deeply moisturize skin, leaving the face fully hydrated, purified, and soothed.

You can choose one mask to use religiously, or you can switch back and forth depending on your skin’s changing needs. Regardless of which sheet mask you choose, you can be confident that the care you’re getting is on par with the rest of ATOPALM’s best-selling skin care formulas.

Acne Care for Dry Skin

Source: flickr.com user SnapShotChaos

If you have dry, acne-prone skin, you know how hard it is to find a cream to address all your concerns at once. Most people associate acne blemishes with oily skin, but the truth is that many dry conditions (such as rosacea) can cause acne breakouts, leaving skin both dry and broken out.

Why does dry skin break out?
The answer to this varies. In short, you can get an acne blemish any time a hair follicle becomes clogged. In oily skin, the clog is usually caused by excess oil. But the follicles can also be clogged by cosmetic products, dirt, bacteria, and dead skin cells — the last being the major cause of acne in dry skin.

If you have dry skin, it’s often flaky and rough. There are dead skin cells galore that refuse to slough off, so instead they clog follicles, leading to breakouts. Dry skin may also try to overcompensate for its dryness by actually overproducing oil, further leading to clogs when those dead skin cells keep oil trapped.

Lastly, conditions associated with dryness, such as rosacea, come with their own forms of pimples which operate similarly to acne blemishes, though they’re not identical. Treatment for rosacea blemishes may differ from traditional acne treatments; however, when it comes to ATOPALM’s secret weapon against blemishes, you only need one product whether you’re dealing with acne or rosacea.

How do I treat pimples in dry skin?
Many popular acne treatments can be harsh and over-drying to the skin, simply because they’re meant for oily, traditionally acne-prone skin. Top acne products often contain benzoyl peroxide, an ingredient which can irritate any skin type, but positively wreak havoc on dry, sensitive skin.

Rather than exposing dry skin to overly stripping acne products, it’s important to find a formulation which will treat the blemishes without upsetting surrounding skin. In this way, you can reduce the appearance of pimples and help them heal without undoing the work of your other skin care products.

What’s the best spot treatment for dry acne-prone skin?
Call us biased if you want, but the truth is still the truth: ATOPALM Cicarelief Cream is our #1 best-selling product for acne. Not only that, but it’s an excellent blemish treatment whether your skin is dry or not! It can be used on acne blemishes as well as rosacea blemishes, and anything in between.

The unique benefits of Cicarelief Cream come from the combination of ATOPALM MLE and calamine. These two ingredients target blemishes from a healing standpoint, as well as a soothing standpoint. MLE repairs and supports skin health while calamine reduces inflammation, redness, and irritation. The result is skin that both looks and feels better while it’s actually being healed — not just covered or dried up.

 

Try Cicarelief Cream when you order the Real Barrier Cica Cream Kit. You’ll find a full size bottle of Cicarelief Cream, as well as mid-size versions of Extreme Cream Mask and Eye Contour Cream, all at a special discounted price.

Korean Skin Care Regimen Step-by-Step Guide, Step Six: Eye Care

This is step six of our Korean skin care regimen series! If you missed the first five, you can read step one hereread step two hereread step three hereread step four here, and read step five here.

Eye skin care  is one of the most important steps of any regimen, but it’s also one of the most skipped steps! Many people assume that eye care is unnecessary, or that they can simply use their normal face cream on their eye area as well.

The fact is, the eye area is one of the most delicate areas of skin on the entire body. This means that the eye area is usually one of the first places to show visible signs of aging and damage. The delicate tissue also means that it’s important to use the right skin care designed especially for the eye area in order to avoid irritation or damage.

Although ATOPALM skin care is already formulated with sensitive and compromised skin in mind, our eye care takes those ideas a step further. Our face creams won’t irritate your eye area, but you’ll be missing out on the targeted care our eye formulas provide.

ATOPALM offers two eye skin care products, each providing unique benefits so users can choose which product meets their needs best.

Our classic MLE line includes Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum, a lightweight yet rich serum-cream created to target visible signs of aging. MLE repairs the skin’s lipid layer while K6PC5 (an activator) works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin E and licorice root further work to brighten, condition, and protect skin. Clinical studies show a reduction in fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles throughout the eye area. 

ATOPALM Real Barrier also offers its own eye care product. Eye Contour Cream contains a peptide to increase skin elasticity, which is a trademark of youthful skin. Hyaluronic acid combines with MLE to deeply hydrate and repair skin, all while the Real Barrier 3-Calming Complex soothes and calms irritated skin.

Once you’ve chosen the right eye skin care product for you, it’s time to apply it with the gentleness and care that K-Beauty is known for. Follow your product’s packaging directions to dispense the proper amount of product onto one of your ring fingers. Dab your other ring finger into the cream so that it’s distributed evenly between your fingers.

Now lightly tap — do not rub — the product onto the eye area, following the natural curvature of your under-eye area. Begin under the inner corners of the eyes, and gently tap in an outward motion, circling all the way up to the end of your eyebrow. After the product has been tapped in, let it set for a minute to properly absorb.

By applying your eye care properly, you’ll avoid the rubbing and tugging that can deeply damage the delicate skin, leading to the visible signs of aging you’re trying to avoid!

Best Skin Care for Irritated Skin

Even if you don’t normally have sensitive skin, chances are you’ve had a handful of times in your life when your skin has become irritated. Maybe during an illness, or after using a new skin care product that was poorly formulated. Other common causes of short-term irritation can be in-office skin procedures, or exposure to irritants like poison oak and ivy.

Regardless of the cause, Cicarelief Cream is here for you. Cicarelief Cream is a deeply healing and reparative cream formulated especially for compromised skin in need of special care. It uses MLE, panthenol, calamine, and madecassoside to soothe and promote healing in skin that has been damaged or irritated. It can be used after sunburn, reactions to natural irritants, or simply when your skin feels less than healthy.

For those who experience extreme sensitivity on a regular basis, Cicarelief Cream can be used more often to keep skin in a healthier and more comfortable state. Use it instead of your normal ATOPALM cream or, in the most extreme cases, in addition to your daily cream. The calamine and panthenol go that extra mile to soothe irritation and restore health.

Last but certainly not least, Cicarelief Cream makes an excellent acne breakout treatment! The soothing ingredients help reduce redness and inflammation while ATOPALM MLE goes to work on repairing the skin barrier. Use it as an acne spot treatment, or on larger areas of the face if you are very acne-prone.

Try Cicarelief Cream today when you purchase the Cicarelief Cream Kit! Offered at a special low price, it features a full-size Cicarelief Cream, as well as mid-size versions of Extreme Cream Mask, Intense Moisture Cream, and Eye Contour Cream. Cicarelief Cream Kit is the perfect way to experience many new ATOPALM products at once, and give your skin the gift of health through ATOPALM Real Barrier.

Korean Skin Care Regimen Step-by-Step Guide, Step Five: Masks

This is step five of our Korean skin care regimen series! If you missed the first four, you can read step one here, read step two hereread step three here, and read step four here.

You may wonder how step five of ATOPALM’s Korean skin care regimen could be masks since ATOPALM.com doesn’t feature any face masks! While K-beauty flew to popularity with the use of sheet masks, that’s one arena that ATOPALM USA hasn’t joined.

Why? Because our skin care creams make such excellent face masks on their own! Since we know that ATOPALM creams can double as face masks, we believe that our customers should get to stick to the formulas they love, and not worry about adding more products to their skin care routine.

One thing to note is that, while K-beauty masks are listed as step five of the ATOPALM Korean skin care regimen, this does not mean that you should use a face mask cream as your fourth step every day. Rather, incorporate this deep moisturizing process once or twice a week, preferably in the evening.

If you’re looking forward to using your favorite ATOPALM cream as a face mask, but you’re not sure where to begin, read on to learn how to apply ATOPALM cream as a face mask.

Step one: choose a cream. Any ATOPALM cream can technically be used as a face mask, but we do have a couple of recommendations based on the various ingredients and formula concentrations we offer on ATOPALM.com.

For example, Intensive Moisturizing Cream is our best-selling moisturizer and can be used as a face mask, but you may see more noticeable results when using one of our Real Barrier formulas, due to the presence of the Real Barrier three-calming complex. Likewise, extremely dry or sensitive skin types may prefer to use an ATOPALM 130+ formula as their face mask to give their skin an intense dose of moisture and comfort.

Step two: begin your skin care process, with step one, step two, step three, and step four of the ATOPALM Korean skin care regimen. When you get to step five (normally Moisturize), move instead into the face mask application process. Note that step four is Treatment, but does include some of our face creams that can be used for treatment purposes. If your mask cream of choice is one of these treatment products, you can apply your mask as step four of the regimen.

Step three: apply as a mask. Instead of gently patting your cream into your skin, apply a thicker-than-normal layer and allow it to sink in gradually. This allows the cream to begin moisturizing immediately, but also to “drink in” the formula naturally, resulting in a more natural moisturization process. It also gives the formula’s active ingredients time to begin working on the surface of the skin before penetrating deeper to repair and replenish from the inside out.

You will be amazed at the difference this application process makes, even if you’re using your normal daily moisturizer as a mask! If you try this special face mask application, please leave us a comment below to let us know your thoughts!

Korean Skin Care Review: Real Barrier Cica Cream

시카프릴리프 사용후기

Review of Cicarelief

얼굴이 민감하게 올라온 것도 많이 가라앉았지만 무엇보다도 팔이 햇빛으로 심하게 자극 받은데다가 제가 긁어서 많이 붓고 따가웠는데 일주일 이상 꾸준히 바르니까 삼일째부터 살결이 보송보송 해지고 가렵지도 않더라구요. 지금 품절인데 재입고 되면 바로 다시 구입할겁니다! 근데 용량이 좀 작아요 ㅠㅠ

The cream not only worked on the sensitive breakouts on my face, but it really did its magic on my arms that were severely burnt from sunlight and had gotten swollen and irritated after I had scratched them. I applied the cream for a week and after the third day my skin started to feel soft and less itchy. It’s out of stock right now, but I plan on buying it again as soon as it is restocked! The volume is a little small though.

Korean Skin Care Regimen Step-by-Step Guide, Step Four: Treatment

This is step four of our Korean skin care regimen series! If you missed the first three, you can read step one here, read step two here, and read step three here.

This step focuses on targeted skin care treatments. Consider step four your way to diversify your skin care regimen and pay attention to your biggest skin care concerns.

One thing to remember is that the K-Beauty regimen puts a lot of emphasis on truly caring for the skin, not just with the right products, but with how you touch and manipulate your skin. All of your products should be gently applied, with more of a tapping or massaging motion than a rough rubbing motion, and treatments are no exception.

Since the treatment step is your chance to focus on your skin care concern, here are a few ATOPALM products that can be used depending on what you’re concerns are. You can use as many or few as you like, as all ATOPALM products are designed to work together without stressing the skin.

 

Concern: Aging Skin
Product: Moisturizing Skin Revitalizing Complex

Formulated with peptides, vitamin C, and an anti-aging skin care activator known as K6PC5, Moisturizing Skin Revitalizing Complex is all you need to fight fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and other visible signs of aging. It of course also features MLE to further hydrate skin, which adds an extra boost of anti-aging action as it allows skin to maintain a youthful plumpness and suppleness.

 

Concern: Extreme Dryness and Sensitivity
Product: ATOPALM 130+ Concentrated Intensive Facial Moisturizer with Panthenol

While all ATOPALM products are created with moisture and the skin’s lipid barrier in mind, ATOPALM 130+ is specially formulated for extremely dry, sensitive, and compromised skin types. Formulated with 30% more active ingredients, ATOPALM 130+ features our richest, most replenishing products. Concentrated Intensive Facial Moisturizer with Panthenol takes this a step further with its star ingredient —you guessed it — panthenol, which is well-known for its deep soothing abilities.

 

Concern: Externally Irritated and Acne-Prone Skin
Product: Real Barrier Cicarelief Cream

One of our newest products is also one of our best treatments for acne blemishes, as well as skin that’s been irritated by external aggressors, like poison oak and ivy. These traits also make it an excellent treatment for use after minor dermatological procedures. Alongside MLE, Cicarelief Cream uses calamine to deeply soothe irritation including redness, itching, and stinging. But the treatment doesn’t stop there! Cicarelief also features panthenol and madecassoside to continue comforting skin long after its been applied.

Concern: Getting the Most from Your Skin Care
Product: Real Barrier Intro Serum

If you don’t have a specific skin care concern, Intro Serum is for you! Think of it as a skin care booster — it actually maximizes the benefits you get from every other ATOPALM product. It can be used alongside any of the previously mentioned treatments, or as your one and only Korean skin care regimen treatment.
