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!

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.

 

K-Beauty Review: Real Barrier Intro Serum

리얼베리어 인트로세럼으로 첫단계 안티에이징 시작! 순하고 촉촉해요
Take the first step to anti-aging with the Real Barrier Intro Serum! It’s gentle and moisturizing.

새해가 오고나서부터 저 뿐만아니라 안티에이징 제품들로 많이 바꾸시는것 같아요
I think a lot of people including myself are changing their skin care products to anti-aging lines after new year..


안티에이징 제품들이 크림 또는 세럼만 있다고 생각하시는 분들도 많으실텐데, 
물론 저도 그렇게 생각해왔었기에~
하지만 이런 생각을 바꾸게 해준 제품이었어요

A lot of people think that there are only creams and serums in anti-aging products. Of course, I thought the same.

However, this product made me change that way of thinking.

 

아무리 좋은 안티에이징 제품들을 바르더라도 그 제품만을 사용하는것이 아닌
근본은 피부장벽을 지켜주면서 발라야한다는 것!
그래서 안티에이징의 기본은 피부장벽을 탄탄하게 가꿔주는것에서부터 시작된다고해요
피부장벽을 지켜주지 못하면 노화의 시작이니, 좋은 제품들 바르더라도.. 머… 안녕이죠..

Even when you use all the great anti-aging products, the key is to take care of the skin barrier while applying all those products!

The foundation of anti-aging starts with a healthy and strong skin barrier.

Aging starts when the skin barrier is not properly protected. So, it’s no use just applying good products.

 

첫 단계에 사용하는 제품 치고는 약간 묵직한 제형이에요
그렇다고 해서 쫀쫀하거나 끈적이는 타입은 아니랍니다
제가 여태 사용했던 첫 단계 제품들 중에서는 흘러내리거나 토너형태의 물같은 제형들이 많았는데요
리얼베리어 세럼 제품은 펌핑 후에 손을 세우더라도 뚝뚝! 떨어지지 않고 흘러내리는 속도도 느리더라구요

The consistency is slightly heavy for a product used as the first step in a skin care routine.

However, that doesn’t mean it is dense and sticky.

A lot of the products I’ve used as the first step in my skin care regimen had a runny, watery consistency like a toner.

But the Real Barrier Serum does not drip off from your hand quickly even when you raise your hand after putting a dab on it.

 

매일 아침 저도 첫단계에서 인트로 세럼 사용해보았어요

I tried the Intro Serum as the first step to my skin care routine every morning.

 

인트로세럼으로 첫단계 시작했는데, 
손등에 테스트 해보았을때랑은 또 다른 느낌이더라구요
얼굴의 속부터 촉촉함이 그대로 느껴지는!

It felt different than when I tested the resum on the back of my hand.

I could feel the moisture penetrating underneath my skin barrier.

 

발랐을때의 촉촉함이 흡수뒤에도 그대로 느껴지더라구요!
원래 첫단계에서 바르는 스킨케어 제품은 촉촉하다는 생각이 많이 들지 않았던 제품들이 대부분이었는데
인트로세럼은 첫단계에서도 촉촉함을 그대로 전해주는 제품이었던것 같아요 
발랐을때는 발림성에 또한번 !
흡수후에는 촉촉함에 한번! 놀랐던 제품이었네요

Even after it was completely absorbed, I could still feel the moisturizing effect.

Most of the products I used in the first step of my skin care routine did not feel very moisturizing, but Intro Serum leaves the skin feeling moisturized after the very first step.

I was first surprised by the feeling of application!

And I was surprised the second time again by the moisturizing feeling after complete absorption.

 

사용후에는 번들거리나 끈적임이 없어서 사용후 마무리감도 좋았던 제품이라
인트로세럼으로 저는 바로 첫단계 제품바꿨어요 🙂

The product leaves a nice finish without any stickiness or glossy look, so I changed my first step of skin care routine to Intro Serum. 😊

 

안티에이징 제품들 시중에 많이 나와 있지만, 
근본은 수분장벽을 지키는 것에서부터 시작!
저도 주름 미백 케어 이전에 수분장벽부터 사수할려구요!

There are a lot of anti-aging products out on the market, but the first step to anti-aging is maintaining a good moisture balance in your skin barrier.

I plan on taking care of the moisture balance in my skin barrier before worrying about wrinkles and brightening skin care.

Why the Eye Area Ages First

Have you ever noticed that most people start getting fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes before anywhere else? If you haven’t noticed already, you won’t be able to miss it now!

The fact is, the eye area shows visible signs of aging before any other spot on the face, and sometimes even the body! (Some are prone to sun spots on their hands early on as well.) The reasons for these premature visible signs of aging are simple: fragility, damage, and lack of moisture.

The skin around the eyes is especially thin and delicate, which makes it more likely to become damaged. On top of that, the eye area experiences a lot of damage! It takes sun damage, physical damage (rubbed your eyes lately?), and, for many people, damage from harsh makeup products being applied and removed on a daily basis. Finally, this thin skin has fewer sebaceous glands, leading to lower moisture levels.

When you look at it that way, it makes sense that the eye area often has dark circles, puffiness or bags, fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles.

Second only to the eye area, the area surrounding the mouth ages earlier for the exact same reasons. People normally see changes to their eye area, and then notice visible signs of aging in the mouth area a few months later.

The fact that these two areas of the face show signs of aging first has led skin care experts to create a new way to describe them: the triangle zone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As shown in the illustration above, within the large triangle zone are smaller triangle zones in need of extra care. If you’re not sure whether or not your triangle zones need more extreme skin care, ask yourself if the following statements are true for you:

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes time to focus on the triangle zones, Atopalm has made it as easy as possible to do so by offering two eye care products that can also be used around the mouth. These multi-tasking formulas provide exceptional anti-aging skin care while remaining as gentle and moisturizing as the other Atopalm products.

Real Barrier Eye Contour Cream Review – The Eye Cream for Life

인생 아이크림

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
