Fall and winter are tough on hands. Frequent hand washing is a must for staying healthy during cold and flu season, but it also can also lead to super dry hands!
Don’t let your hands become dry, rough, cracked, and painful. Instead, keep them smooth, comfy, and beautiful by following our must-know cold weather skin care tips for hands.
First, wash hands in tepid, not hot, water. This will preserve the skin’s natural oils and help prevent over-drying.
Secondly, use gentle soaps that do not contain harsh ingredients like sodium laureth or sodium lauryl sulfate.
Thirdly, wear gloves whenever you’ll be out in harsh weather conditions.
Finally, moisturize morning, evening, and as needed with our Moisturizing Hand Treatment. MLE and other soothing ingredients deeply hydrate the skin while protecting it against external aggressors. Our hand cream is especially effective when it’s used after every hand washing.
By following these simple skin care tips for dry hands, your hands will remain comfortable all winter long!

As the weather warms, more women (and men!) are heading to the spa for a pedicure and manicure! After all, summer is the time of flip flops and fun polish colors for all your warm-weather adventures.
However, mani/pedis can become expensive very quickly. Plus, often spas use subpar dry skin care products that may be harsh on sensitive and dry skintypes. If you find that you’re needing better-quality skin care or to save a few bucks in the spa department, then this how-to guide is for you! Read on to learn how to do a pedicure and manicure at home like the pros.
Step 1: remove old nail polish and soak your hands and feet in comfortably warm water. Make sure the water isn’t too hot, or it’ll dry out your sensitive skin. You can add epsom, bath salts, or essential oils to your water to create a more spa-like atmosphere!
Step 2: remove your feet from their soak and, using a slightly damp wash cloth, gently slough away dead skin. Your skin should be very soft at this point, and only mild pressure should yield results. If your sensitive skin isn’t too tender, you’re also welcome to use a sea sponge or foot file to remove dead skin. However, for very sensitive skin, a washcloth will be enough.
Step 3: with skin still damp, moisturize your hands with Atopalm Moisturizing Hand Treatment and Atopalm Foot and Heel Balm. Work the hand cream into your cuticles, and the Foot and Heel Balm into calloused and cracked areas. Allow time for the moisturizer to sink in and thoroughly repair the skin with MLE and other advanced moisturizing ingredients.
Step 4: gently push back hand and feet cuticles with a cuticle pusher and trim as needed. If your cuticle beds are too sensitive, you may also gently push them in with your thumb nails until they are cleaned up a bit. Then, shape nails with a file until desired length and shape.
Step 5: paint nails with a formaldehyde-free nail polish and top coat, or simply use a drop of apricot kernel oil to nourish your nails if you prefer a natural nail.
That’s it! You’ve just completed your at-home mani/pedi and saved yourself a pretty penny. You can even maximize your savings by purchasing the Moisturizing Hand Treatment and Foot and Heel Balm together in our Hand and Foot Duo, which is offered at 20% off retail price! Happy spa day!
A while back, we posted an article about a popular product known as Baby Foot Exfoliation, and how it compares to our awesome Moisturizing Foot and Heel Balm. Little did we know that the Baby Foot Exfoliation post would go on to be one of our most viewed posts of all time!
You can read the original post here, but for those who would like a quick rundown, here’s the gist: Baby Foot Exfoliation is a very extreme skin care exfoliation product for the feet. It’s designed to peel away dead layers of skin, making your feet feel baby soft, hence the product name. Many people were hailing it as the best dry foot product around; however, as more and more people tried the product, stories of excessive peeling and major skin sensitivity began to surface.
Baby Foot Exfoliation uses natural acids and “other ingredients” to remove dead skin, callouses, and patches of roughness. By most accounts, the product is very successful. The downside is that many of these users also experienced sensitivity, since the skin remaining after the peel was too new to comfortably handle the demand we place on our feet every day!
In addition to this basic skin sensitivity, some users even experienced extreme discomfort and pain, while others told of sheets of skin peeling off long after they had used the treatment. Needless to say, Baby Foot Exfoliation lost traction due to its extreme results that were much too drastic for most users.
If you came here looking for a foot care product that can soften rough skin, moisturize dry skin, and treat callouses, Atopalm has just the product for you – and it won’t cause any sensitivity at all!
Our Moisturizing Foot and Heel Balm is a true skin care marvel. It deeply moisturizes with MLE to restore softness and comfort to the feet while targeting callouses and other areas of roughness. The best part is that it does all this without harsh ingredients! It’s even safe for use on those who suffer from dry skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and more, plus it can be used as a diabetic foot cream by those who deal with foot discomfort associated with the disease.

You cleanse, moisturize, treat, and protect your face, but do you also pamper your body? Even the most regimented skin care lovers tend to forget everything from the neck down. Maybe it’s because the face is prominent and considered more important, or maybe it’s simply because the body seems like more of an undertaking than the face! The fact is body skin care is just as important as the complexion. Skin is skin, and it needs some help to stay healthy and beautiful!
If you’re concerned about the cost or work that goes into caring for the skin on your body, don’t be! Even though it does need a little help along the way, caring for your body’s skin is not as intensive as caring for your face because your body is protected most of the time by your clothes. Along those same lines, one doesn’t cover their body in makeup every day, or spend time rubbing, scratching, or picking at the skin on their body, so there’s often less to heal or treat.
The two most common areas of concern on the body are the hands and feet. It’s no surprise when you think of what your hands and feet have to endure all day! These areas often feature dry skin, peeling skin, condition flare-ups (like eczema), and in the case of the hands, signs of sun damage and premature aging.
Masking the issues in these areas with cheap skin care lotion can, unfortunately, make the issues worse. Using inferior ingredients on your skin can actually cause more drying and condition flare-ups. Instead, it’s wise to invest in a healing and protective formula. If your concerns lie within your hands and feet, especially dry or sensitive skin, a set like Atopalm’s Hand and Foot Duo is a must.
These two products use quality ingredients and a special advanced technology to restore natural hydration while soothing and preventing skin care concerns like eczema. They can also be used on other problem areas, like the knees and elbows, to restore beauty and balance.
For the rest of the body, regular cleansing and moisturizing are generally all that’s needed. Find a body lotion or body cream that supplies and seals in moisture while helping to protect with antioxidant botanicals, such as Moisturizing Body Lotion. One may also choose to exfoliate the body, which can help smooth and illuminate dull skin. Since the skin on the body is usually less sensitive than the skin on the face, a physical scrub is a great choice to remove dead skin cells in order to reveal healthy, luminous skin.
