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.

How Dry Skin Ages You

The woes of dry skin are well-known: flaking, itching, burning, peeling. It’s an uncomfortable affliction that plagues many, yet there’s one effect of dry skin that isn’t often talked about — how dry skin causes skin to look older than it should.

Dry and aging skin are one in the same. If your skin is dry, you lose the plumpness of youth. Fine lines and wrinkles appear sooner and are more defined. Crow’s feet around the eyes and creases around the mouth arrive far before their time. Combined with the redness and rough skin texture of dry skin, and you’re left with a complexion deprived of its natural, healthy beauty and the comfort you deserve.

The good news is that by targeting the root cause of premature signs of skin aging — dry skin — you can reduce the appearance of visible signs of aging, and even prevent new ones from appearing. By restoring the skin’s moisture levels and lipid layer, you’ll also be restoring a youthful appearance to your face.

ATOPALM MLE accomplishes this flawlessly. By focusing on restoring the skin’s natural lipid layer, your putting the power of healthy skin back into the care and control of the skin itself. Think of MLE like arming your skin against discomfort, damage, and premature signs of skin aging.

Because MLE perfectly mimics the skin’s own lipid layer, the skin readily accepts its help and begins to function normally again. Moisture levels become balanced, and damage from environmental factors is less likely to occur.

As moisture levels rise, skin plumpness is restored and fine lines and wrinkles appear filled from the inside out. Skin is smoother, more radiant, and healthier. Last but not least, comfort is returned to the skin — itching, flaking, and stinging are banished.

The use of MLE products by ATOPALM is the #1 way to restore balance to the skin and target visible signs of aging caused by dryness. Try ATOPALM today and see the difference for yourself.

 

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.

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!

Back to School K-Beauty Hacks for Moms

School’s back in session, which means you’re back to drop off lines and PTA meetings. Don’t let crammed mornings get in the way of taking care of your skin — just turn to these ATOPALM Korean beauty skin care tricks to keep your skin happy, healthy, and beautiful without demanding too much time.

These time-saving formulas can be used on their own if you’re in a rush, or incorporated into a more complete Korean skin care routine when you have more time to spare!

Cleanse with Cleansing Water, ATOPALM’s own water-free cleanser! This formula actually cleans skin without the use of water, meaning you can simply swipe skin to purify it before moving onto your next skin care step! MLE and other moisturizers wrap your skin in its first layer of moisture, making sure you stay far away from the dryness and tightness associated with harsh skin care cleansers.

 

Moisturize with Daytime Undermakeup Moisture Cream. Formulated once again with MLE, this excellent cream provides your skin with a richer dose of moisture while also perfectly prepping it for makeup application. Think of it as your day cream and makeup primer in one quick step!

 

 

Body care is just as important as face skin care, so don’t forget to treat your shoulders, knees, and toes (and everywhere in between) with Moisturizing Body Lotion. This lush formula features MLE and other skin-boosting ingredients to repair the skin’s natural lipid layer on the entire body.

 

These three go-to formulas may not be a complete Korean beauty regimen, but they sure get the job done when you’re short on time!

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.

Real Barrier Cica Cream Review

구세주 시카릴리프!

My savior Cicarelief!

트러블전쟁에서 나를 구해주는 구세주!! 시카릴리프!! 트러블로 얼굴이 뒤집어졌을때 아침저녁으로 얼굴전체에 도포하고 자면 3일이면 얼굴이 깨끗해져요~^^ 효과를 본 이후로는 매일매일 데일리케어로 사용하는데ㅎ 양이….적…어도 너무너무 적….ㅜㅠ 한달이면 다 써요 심지어 꼬리쪽 파란부분의 반은 배송올때부터 비어 있…ㅜㅠ 대용량 좀 만들어 주쎄요!!

Cicarelief saved me from my war against breakouts. When my face breaks out I apply a layer all over my face day and night. In three days, my skin calms down and is clean again. After experiencing this amazing effect, I’ve been incorporating the cream into my daily routine. But the cream comes in such a small tube that I run out of it in a month. The blue part on the bottom of the tube even seemed a little empty when I first got it. Please make the product in larger size.

Real Barrier Review: Cica Cream and Essence Mist

재구매

Repurchased!

촉촉하고 순한 미스트예요! 전에 사용해보고 면세점에서 구입해서 쓰고 이번에 또 구입했네요^_^ 세번째 재구매면 말 다했죠 ㅋㅋ 너무 좋아요~ 아 그리고 전에 지인에게 선물했더니 너무 좋아했던 기억이 나요! 피부관리중에 제일 첫번째가 수분관리라는 생각이 들어 요즘 생활습관도 바꾸고 기초제품에도 신경쓰고 있는데 세안하고 제일 첫번째 단계로 요 미스트 듬뿍 뿌려 흡수시키는것 부터 시작해요. 그러면 다음 단계 화장품도 다 잘 흡수하더라구요! 요즘 손으로 얼굴에 바를 때 그 부드러운 느낌! 희열을 느껴요 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

This is such such a gentle hydrating mist! I tried it before so I purchased it at a duty-free store and bought it again this time. So, that pretty much sums up how good this product is! Hahaha. I really like this product. I also remember that I bought one as a present for an acquaintance and she really liked it!

I think the first step to skin care is to keep the skin hydrated. So, I’ve changed my lifestyle and have been attentive to which skin care products I use. The first thing I do after cleansing my face is to spray my whole face with this mist so that my skin fully absorbs the mist. Then, all other makeup products is absorbed so nicely afterwards! I love the soft feeling when I apply it to my face with hands. It feels so nice. lol.
