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.

Fake a Facelift with Phytoceramids

Are you looking to achieve the anti-aging skin care results of a facelift without the cost, pain, recovery, and complication risks? Believe it or not, it’s doable! You can fake a facelift at home with little to no risk of side effects, and save hundreds or thousands of dollars in the process.

How is this possible? With phytoceramides of course! Phytoceramides, also known as plant ceramids, are natural ingredients used in anti-aging skin care to gently turn back the hands of time without surgery or in-office procedures.

Phytoceramids are able to replenish the ceramides that occur naturally in your skin. You see, the cells of the outermost layer of skin are help together with skin ceramides. These ceramides are a fatty substance that work similarly to glue. Ceramides also help to keep the skin hydrated, which leads to all the characteristics of youthful skin – suppleness, elasticity, radiance, and smoothness.

As people age, ceramides are killed off thanks to poor diet, environmental aggressors, free radicals, and other forms of damage. When ceramide levels become depleted, the top layer of skin is left without its glue and its moisture protection! By age 60, most people’s top layer of skin is around 30% thinner than it was in their youth. This is where fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dryness, and ruddiness come in.

So, what does all this mean for you and your DIY facelift? You’ve probably got it all figured out by now! When you use skin care with phytoceramides, those plant ceramides are able to replace your skin’s lost ceramides! Your cells are “re-glued” and your skin is able to maintain or even regain characteristics of youthful skin. Moisture levels are maintained. Thickness is protected. Smoothness, radiance, elasticity, and suppleness win!

Atopalm MLE (multi-lamellar emulsion) is created with phytoceramides, as well as fatty acids and good cholesterol. The reason why we used a combination of ingredients instead of just plant-derived ceramides is because this blend actually perfectly mimics the skin’s natural lipid lamellar structure. This provides superior anti-aging skin care results, as well as deep soothing and moisturizing benefits for dry skin and sensitive skin types.

How to Get Radiant Skin

Youthful, healthy skin can be summed up with three descriptors: smooth, supple, and radiant. If you find that your radiance has gone the way of the dinosaurs, we’re here to help! In this post, you’ll learn all about how to get radiant skin with Atopalm.

Unfortunately, dry and sensitive skin types are usually the first to lose their radiance. It’s hard to be radiant when your skin doesn’t have the right moisture balance! Lack of radiance contributes to many skin complaints, including premature skin aging, looking dull or tired, ashy skin tone, and more.

When your skin is radiant, it automatically appears healthier and more youthful. The great news is that the quickest way to getting radiant skin is to replenish and maintain healthy moisture levels, something we at Atopalm know a little about!

Our Atopalm MLE technology is able to mimic the skin’s natural lipid layer. When your skin is dry, damaged and sensitive, it usually means that your lipid layer is compromised and unable to maintain healthy moisture levels. MLE is able to soak into your skin to repair and support the lipid layer, leading to skin that looks and feels healthy and – you guessed it! – radiant.

Any of our MLE products will be able to restore comfort and radiance to your skin, but we do have two dry skin care products that work especially well together to restore radiance. Meet our Extreme Treat Duo. Featuring a face complex and eye serum, the Extreme Treat Duo can restore and illuminate the entire face.

First, the Moisturizing Skin Revitalizing Complex offers anti-aging skin care actions to smooth fine lines and other visible signs of aging. MLE restores the lipid layer and other advanced ingredients support skin function and appearance. Its lightweight texture comforts and soothes feelings of dryness without ever feeling heavy or greasy. In no time at all, radiance is restored!

Next, the Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum gently yet effectively addresses visible signs of aging and dryness in the eye area. The eye area is often one of the first areas of the body to show signs of aging. Our advanced anti-aging eye serum aims to prevent and diminish signs of aging, allowing your eye area to reclaim and maintain a youthful vibrancy, as well as healthy moisture levels.

The best part? When you buy these two anti-aging skin care products together in the Extreme Treat Duo, you’ll save 20% off retail price and earn free shipping to any U.S. location! It’s an extreme treat for your skin and your wallet!

Reclaim radiance and comfort with Extreme Treat Duo today!

Deal of the Week: Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum

Moisturizing Eye Repair SerumThis month, we’re rolling out a new sale deal for each week of October! This week’s deal features our anti-aging skin care Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum at a special low price. Be sure to check here next week to see the new Deal of the Week, or sign up for our emails and Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to stay up-to-date on our deals and steals.

Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum is a true anti-aging formulation, designed to diminish and prevent visible signs of skin aging without causing irritation or discomfort. Formulated especially for dry, sensitive skin types, this sensational product promises to work without ever exacerbating skin issues.

Fine lines, laugh lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet…No matter what you call them, chances are they’re not welcome. Many people see visible signs of aging in the eye area before anywhere else on their body. This is because the skin surrounding the eye is more delicate and prone to damage than the rest of your skin!

Our Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum is specially formulated for use on the delicate eye area. Made without the use of parabens, our anti-aging eye serum utilizes MLE technology to mimic the skin’s natural lipids, allowing the skin to regain a youthful tone and texture by way for normalizing hydration levels.

In addition to MLE, Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum features skin care antioxidants, peptides, brighteners and more to truly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The skin’s texture becomes smoother and more youthful, while its tone regains evenness and brightness.

Last but not least, our antiaging eye cream boasts a formula that is safe and gentle enough for use on even the most sensitive skin types. Many anti-aging products are too harsh for dry skin and those with sensitive skin conditions. Ours, however, is formulated especially for those clients who are not able to use mainstream skin care products due to dryness and irritation.

Featured Product: Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum

Moisturizing Eye Repair SerumThe eye area: the most delicate area of skin on the body, but also the most neglected area of skin on the body! If you’ve struggled with your eye area in the past, or if you’re looking for ways to protect your eye area for the future, this post is for you.

The skin surrounding the eye is similar to tissue paper; easily damaged and wrinkled. It is often one of the first areas (along with the hands) to show visible signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, bags, and dark under eye circles. The good news is that all of these signs of aging can be both prevented and treated with our featured product, Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum!

 

Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum is your anti-aging eye serum and eye moisturizer in one! The paraben-free formula offers everything your eye area needs to stay nourished, moisturized, youthful, and vibrant. Here’s a look at how just one product can accomplish all these tasks…

  • Atopalm’s patented MLE technology is the first responder to many of your eye area needs. It mimics the skin’s natural lipid layer to seal in hydration for lasting moisture. This helps the eye area to become and remain healthfully plump, thereby diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It simultaneously improves radiance and suppleness, both of which are qualities of youthful skin.
  • Skin care antioxidants heal and prevent free radical damage. Free radicals are caused by external aggressors and pollutants like cigarette smoke, sun damage, and harsh weather conditions. These free radicals are one of the main causes of visible signs of aging and damage, but they can be prevented and healed with antioxidants!
  • Brighteners and skin care peptides provide tough anti-aging actions beyond what MLE and antioxidants can do on their own. Peptides and brighteners work together to specifically target visible signs of aging like wrinkles and dark under eye circles, and can effectively restore a youthful appearance to the eye area.

This calculated blend of skin care ingredients combine to provide you with the best anti-aging skin care possible, while still maintaining Atopalm’s gentleness standards. This means that Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum can still be used by dry skin, sensitive skin, and those with conditions that make it difficult to use mainstream anti-aging skin care products. No matter what your skin type, a youthful and moisturized eye area can be yours with Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum!

How Your Hands Are Aging You

When most people think of anti-aging skin care, they think of products for their face. Crow’s feet, laugh lines, mouth creases, and pigmentation are high on everyone’s list of things to avoid. But, did you know that, no matter how hard you work on keeping your face youthful, your hands might be giving you away?

The truth is, our hands start showing visible signs of aging long before the face. It makes sense when you think about it; the hands do everything, without much help in the skin care department! You may slather your face in moisture or SPF, but it usually takes until the hands start to sting with dryness before a hand cream is applied.

Generally without topical protection, hands are (hopefully) washed multiple times a day with soaps, they sit in the sun while you drive, they clean, prepare food, and are exposed to every bit of weather imaginable. It’s actually amazing that hands don’t start showing visible signs of aging sooner!

When they do start to show signs of wear and tear, the hands are quick to become dry, wrinkled, rough, and discolored. Sun spots appear, and elasticity is diminished. If you’ve been taking care of the skin on your face, you may look youthful and healthy at first glance, but a quick look down and you’ll be able to see how your hands are aging you.

The best way to avoid aging hands is to prevent damage. Using a daily hand cream will keep skin moisturized and protected against environmental damage. Rather than applying your hand lotion only when your skin feels dry, incorporate hand care into your morning skin care regimen.

If you’ve already started to see visible signs of aging on the hands, it’s not too late! Atopalm’s Moisturizing Hand Treatment is designed to both prevent and repair the damage that causes wrinkling, dry skin, pigmentation, and more.

Formulated with Atopalm’s patented MLE technology, Moisturizing Hand Treatment thoroughly replenishes hydration while preventing future moisture loss. It also features skin care antioxidants and nutrients to neutralize free radicals, one of the main causes of skin aging, and restore health to the skin.

Moisturizing Hand Treatment is ideal for all skin types, but it will feel especially comforting to those with dry skin and disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.
