Fall in Love with Atopalm Skin Care for Fall

It’s finally happening! Fall has returned! Well, technically fall begins in two days, but who’s counting? I’m not sure if you can tell or not, but fall is pretty exciting to me. You’d be excited, too, if your summer temps hovered around 105 degrees! Who cares about pumpkin spice anything? Just give me a hoodie!

Another thing I love about fall is changing up my skin care routine. We all know how even a little change in the day-to-day makes everything feel new and easier. Well, now’s your chance to give yourself a break from the mundane and switch over to your fall skin care regimen!

How should a skin care regimen change with the seasons? It’s not about finding new formulas (though some may choose to switch) but more about what you spend your time focusing on. Here’s a look at how a summer skin care routine should change with the shift into fall.

Less lotion, more cream. For many people, cooler weather means heavier skin care moisturizers. This is especially true for those with dry skin who need extra help in fall and winter, thanks to harsher weather and central heating.

If you usually use a face lotion, which is generally lighter weight than a cream, it might be a good time to switch. For very dry skin or sensitive skin, I recommend our Intensive Moisturizing Cream. It is rich enough for even extremely dry skin, and can even be used on dry areas like the knees and elbows.

If you have normal or oily skin, our Daytime Undermakeup Moisture Cream is a great choice. It still provides great hydration with our patented MLE, but won’t feel quite as heavy as Intensive Moisturizing Cream. As the name suggests, it’s also ideal for use under makeup!

Less hot water, more body lotionIn the cooler months, it may be tempting to warm up by using hot water when you bathe or wash your hands. However, this is very damaging to dry skin and can significantly increase discomfort and dryness. The hot water strips away protective oils (which dry skin lacks to begin with), leaving the skin feeling raw.

Instead, wash and bathe in tepid water, and always follow-up with a moisturizer. Our Moisturizing Body Lotion is a lifesaver when it comes to caring for skin from the neck down. Use it after bathing to lock in moisture for all-day comfort.

Less makeup, more moisture application. In summer, even dry skin can typically get by with just a morning and evening application of face moisturizer. In colder months, though, it’s strongly recommended that you re-apply light layers of moisturizer throughout the day, or whenever skin feels parched.

The best way to accomplish this without completely ruining your makeup is to apply a light layer of makeup and use our Moisture Mist throughout the day. This way, you’re not applying face cream overtop your carefully applied makeup, and your makeup isn’t getting in the way of your moisturizer!

As you can see, updating your skin care routine to reflect the changing seasons doesn’t have to be an ordeal, and can lead to a fun new system. Just tweak a couple products, and you’ll have the perfect plan for achieving beautiful, happy skin.

Best Creams for Summer Skin Irritation

When most people think of summer, they think fun: vacationing, swimming, camping, day trips…It’s difficult to avoid fun during summer!

But for a select few, summer brings with it skin discomfort and inconvenience. If you suffer from a skin condition that is worsened by heat or sun, or if you’re prone to environmental irritation, this post is for you.

The best creams for summer skin irritation are from ATOPALM. Our ATOPALM 130+ line was designed with ultra sensitive skin in mind! Whether you have a chronic skin condition or simply have irritable skin, ATOPALM 130+ can help.

ATOPALM 130+ is a simple line comprised of only two products: Concentrated Intensive Cream and Concentrated Intensive Facial Moisturizer with Panthenol. The line is named ATOPALM 130+ because it contains 30% more active soothing ingredients than our traditional MLE line. That means extra comfort and protection for your ultra dry, sensitive skin.

Here’s a glimpse at the ATOPALM 130+ duo as a whole:

What it Contains:

  • ATOPALM MLE to mimic this skin’s natural lipid barrier
  • Patented plant origin ceramides to bind water to the skin
  • Squalane, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, and vitamin E to deeply moisturize and provide anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and anti-septic actions
  • Phytosterols and allantoin to calm and soothe irritated skin
  • Lavendula Angustifolia (Lavenda) Oil to supply a mood-enhancing aroma

What it doesn’t contain:

  • Parabens
  • Ethanol
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Mineral Oil
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • PEG
  • Artificial Fragrances
  • Benzophenone
  • Diathanolamine
  • Artificial Pigments

By carefully selecting which ingredients go into and stay out of ATOPALM 130+, we’ve ensured safe, irritation-free use for every skin type and condition.

ATOPALM 130+ can be seamlessly inserted into any Korean skin care regimen as your daily moisturizer, or it can be used as-needed on skin irritation or condition flare-ups. During summer, ATOPALM 130+ should be your go-to for treating sunburn, mild reactions to chlorine or saltwater, and even poison oak or poison ivy rash.

A Quest for Healing: The Passionate Roots of Atopalm

“I’m also grateful for whatever force in me never let me give up. That I held onto that voice inside me that told me to find my own way, not to give in and follow anyone else, no matter how compelling their example seemed or their desire for me.” – Dr. Park, A Quest for Healing
Most successes in life are made possible by one driving force — passion. Atopalm is no exception.

Dr. Raymond Park, creator of MLE and founder of Atopalm, began his journey when two of his three sons could not be cured of their acute atopic dermatitis, otherwise known as eczema. Dr. Park devoted his life to developing the first viable bio-identical non-prescription formula for healing and protecting the skin barrier — and succeeded in reaching his goal.

During his years of hard work developing this revolutionary skin care ingredient, Dr. Park was faced with the struggle of needing to devote his time and energy to his breakthrough formula, which meant he was not spending that time with the very sons he was working so hard to heal.


A Quest for Healing is the story of Dr. Park and his dedication to discovering multi-lamellar emulsion while facing the unforeseen difficulties of his own cultural conditioning, troubled relationships, and expectations of himself as a father.

A Quest for Healing is available for digital download at an introductory price of $0.99. This price is available for a limited time only, so don’t delay!

“It didn’t matter that the next part of my direction wasn’t clear because the most important thing was clear: I had taken my own direction. There was something inside me, invisible yet completely real, that was guiding me. In spite of any fears or doubts that might arise in my mind or heart, that something would be there and I knew somehow that I would be able to count on it. I could move forward with faith.” – Dr. Park, A Quest for Healing

Treatments for Seasonal Skin Irritation

If you’re a sufferer of seasonal allergies, your skin may be suffering along with you this spring! Allergy symptoms within the skin may include increased dryness and flakiness, rough skin texture, eczema, or sun sensitivity.

While your doctor will be able to suggest medications to treat the root cause of your
allergies, Atopalm is here to help soothe and control allergy symptoms in the skin.

Use Atopalm Intensive Moisturizing Cream anywhere on the face or body to deeply moisturize, comfort, and support skin during allergy symptoms. It’s light enough for use as a face cream on dry skin, or as a spot treatment for extremely dry areas like the knees, elbows, or feet.

If your skin is still struggling this spring, look into our Atopalm 130+ line. Featuring our award-winning MLE at a 30% higher concentration, Atopalm 130+ is the most intensive Atopalm line available.

In addition to using Atopalm MLE to help control and conquer skin dryness and discomfort, it’s important to keep skin free of external aggressors. Bathe every evening to rid your skin and hair of pollen, and change clothes after returning from outdoors.

Keeping your skin calm and comfortable this spring isn’t hard when you turn to Atopalm for help!

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!

Eat Right for Your Skin Type: Sensitive Skin

When it comes to sensitive skin, treating your symptoms holistically is one of the most effective ways to keep outbreaks at bay. And when we say holistically, we don’t mean using wooden necklaces to magically heal symptoms! We mean holistic in the literal sense — by looking at the system as a whole, rather than treating bits and pieces of the body.

Sensitive skin and diet have been proven to have a strong connection. Just ask someone with a food allergy who deals with eczema, or a person who avoids spicy foods as to not set off their rosacea. If you have sensitive skin, eating right for your skin type is just as important as choosing the right skin care products.

If you have sensitive skin, it is more reliable to avoid certain foods rather than eat certain foods. You may find that some foods help your sensitive skin, but as you’re getting started, try cutting out the following foods to see if your skin condition improves.

Dairy
Dairy is a common trigger food, especially for eczema. You don’t have to be lactose intolerant to avoid dairy — dairy allergies are entirely different, but just as legitimate. Whey and casein (milk proteins) are usually the allergy culprits, so also avoid food products made with those ingredients. Great dairy alternatives include nut milks, rice milk, coconut milk, and hemp milk.

Wine
There’s probably a lot of groaning for this one, but it’s important. The tannins found in wine (especially red wine) can be a skin irritant, especially for those with rosacea. Wine tannins can cause skin flushing and hives, and is also a dehydrator. White wine might be ok in small amounts, but be sure to be aware of how your skin is looking and feeling after you indulge.

Additives
Artificial colors, preservatives, artificial flavors, MSG…Additives are unhealthy for the system, so they’re unhealthy for your skin. Canned, frozen, and boxed foods generally contain additives, but you also have to watch out for foods masquerading as healthy but hiding a list of additives. These foods can include yogurt, diet snacks, and so much more.

Gluten
True, being gluten-free has become very popular in the last few years, but that doesn’t mean that genuine gluten allergies don’t exist. Celiac disease causes people to be unable to eat gluten without suffering from awful symptoms, including itchy, blistering rashes called dermatitis herpetiformis. Even those without celiac disease can have a gluten intolerance, which can cause skin issues like acne and eczema.

Eggs
Egg whites (and sometimes the yolk) can cause a skin rash by triggering your body’s histamine response. Sometimes this reaction happens within minutes of eating an egg, while other times you may not notice a rash until hours later. In extreme reactions, the rash will turn into hives and you’ll have a full-blown allergic reaction on your hands. If you suspect eggs to be causing your skin issues, remove them from your diet for two weeks and see if your skin condition improves.

Avoiding common foods is certainly inconvenient, but seeing your skin regain health, beauty, and comfort will be the incentive you need to stick with it.

Eat Right for Your Skin Type: Dry Skin

Using dry skin care products like the Atopalm MLE, Real Barrier, and 130+ lines are the perfect way to moisturize dry skin from the outside, but what about moisturizing from the inside out? You can support healthy moisture levels from all angles when you eat right for your skin type.

All skin types require proper moisture levels to function properly, but dry skin tends to have the hardest time recovering once its become over-dry. Prevent dry episodes by eating healthful foods that will promote healthy moisture even without your normal skin care routine. Here’s a look at five great foods you can eat if you have dry skin.

Nuts
Loaded with vitamin E, nuts are the perfect skin care food. Vitamin E helps the skin in multiple ways including by protecting against oxidative cell damage and environmental damage like UV rays and pollution. Incorporate nuts into your daily salads or snacks to get a big skin care boost!

Sweet Potatoes
Baked, french-fried, or mashed — sweet potatoes are a dry skin dream. Beta-carotene is the star nutrient of sweet potatoes, and it supports skin in two ways. Beta-carotene can be broken down by the body to become vitamin A, also known as retinol. Vitamin A helps reduce visible signs of skin aging while protecting against skin dryness. Beta-carotene can also offer skin care antioxidant protection to further prevent skin aging, as well as cell damage within the body.

Olive Oil
Heart-healthy (and delicious!) olive oil is a perfect pair for dry skin. Vitamin E offers antioxidant and skin conditioning benefits while omega-3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats work to provide the skin the nutrients it needs to moisturize and protect itself. Olive oil can even help shield your skin against UV rays, and may improve or prevent dry skin conditions like eczema.

Bonus: avocados feature many of the same nutrients as olive oil. A perfect dry skin care snack? Olive oil drizzled over avocado with salt and pepper. YUM!

Water-rich vegetables
Watery veggies like cucumber and celery will have a direct effect on dry skin. These vegetables are high in silica, which boosts moisture and skin elasticity. Antioxidant vitamins including vitamin A and vitamin C also work to calm dryness, combat free radical damage, and improve the overall appearance of your skin.

Fish
You can strengthen the skin’s barrier to prevent moisture loss by eating more fish! Omega-3 fatty acids keep the skin moisturized and healthy. You’ll be glowing from the inside out when you incorporate salmon, herring, tuna, and trout into your weekly diet.

Eating right for your skin type is and easy (and delicious way) to support the skin and reinforce your dry skin care Atopalm routine. What’s your favorite dry skin-friendly meal or snack? Share in the comments!
