After Sun Skin Care Tips for Dry and Sensitive Skin

For many people, dry skin ends as soon as winter does! Dry skin during summer is less common than during winter, but for true dry skin sufferers, summer can bring with it a whole new slew of dry and sensitive skin issues.

But there is hope! Here are our tips for keeping your dry, sensitive skin healthy and comfortable all summer long.

 

Keep it Cool
Staying cool is essential for all sensitive skin sufferers, but especially for those with rosacea. Remaining indoors or in the shade will keep skin cooler and help prevent excess redness and flushing. It also helps prevent sweating, which can further irritate skin.

If you live in an area that gets very hot during summer, staying cool might be tricky, but it is possible. The obvious first suggestion is to stay indoors or at least in covered, shady areas. If that’s not possible, wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your skin from direct sunlight, or use a parasol to keep skin shaded. As a last defense, spritz your skin with water throughout the day to cool its surface temperature, or take a quick dip in the pool to reduce your core body temperature. (Just remember to shower and moisturize after!)

Keep it Clean
As previously mentioned, sweat can irritate sensitive skin. Sweat on its own is not an irritant; however, for sensitive skin, sweat can lead to itching and discomfort as it dries. This can leave skin feeling worn, tight, and tired.

The simplest way to prevent sweat-caused irritation is to stay clean. After exercising or spending time in the sun, bathe if you can, or use a wet washcloth to very gently remove excess sweat and cool the skin’s surface. This way, you’ll fully avoid the discomfort and irritation caused by sweat drying on your skin.

Keep it Moisturized
Moisturizing during summer doesn’t provide the same satisfaction as it does during winter. If you’re already hot, your moisturizing cream may feel heavy or cloying. If you head outside immediately after you finish your skin care routine, you may start to sweat through your products.

However, keeping skin moisturized during summer is an absolute must. It allows the skin to maintain its healthy functions, giving it the ability to better protect itself against sun damage. Think of moisturizing like giving the skin the tools it needs to perform its best. Plus, your skin will look and feel healthier, too!

Moisture Mist is a fast and easy way to deliver rich moisture to the skin without feeling too heavy. It’s perfect for extremely dry skin types that need a pick-me-up midday, or for any other skin type after it’s lost moisture from summer play. It makes a great post-shave treatment, after sun soother, skin refresher and more. It makes summer moisturizing a breeze!

 

By following these simple tips, you’ll be able to enjoy the healthier, more comfortable skin all summer long.

 

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.

Best Summer Skin Care Products

Keeping skin safe in summer shouldn’t be a hassle! Don’t let summer skin care feel like a chore; simply keep it healthy and comfortable with ATOPALM.

All skin needs specialized care during summer, but dry and sensitive skin types are very prone to sun damage. Dry skin can become even drier with prolonged sun exposure, plus pool chlorine and salt water can also demolish what little moisture your dry skin was able to hold onto!

When it comes to sensitive skin, sun exposure, chlorine, and salt water also cause issues, but these issues are often even more extreme than what dry skin deals with. Sensitive skin conditions like rosacea are worsened by heat alone, and simply become worse with direct sun and water exposure. Then there are those conditions linked directly to sun exposure, like polymorphous light eruption, which is an allergic reaction to the sun!

But here’s some great news: most summertime dry skin conditions and sensitive skin issues can be addressed with ATOPALM products! All ATOPALM products can be used year-round, but some formulas in particular are fantastic for preventing and calming summer skin care concerns. Here’s a look at just a few:

 

ATOPALM Moisture Mist is a versatile, spray-on moisturizer. It’s a must-have for use immediately after sun exposure and swimming to replenish moisture and keep skin comfortable. It also gives your skin a burst of radiance without the health risks of tanning!


ATOPALM Daytime Undermakeup Moisture Cream is a lightweight MLE moisturizer and makeup primer in one. It’s great for use as a lighter summertime moisturizer for normal to oily skin, or layered over another ATOPALM moisturizer for drier, more sensitive skin types.


ATOPALM Real Barrier Cleansing Water
offers travel-friendly, water-free cleansing you can use anytime, anywhere. A must-have for camping and weekend getaways!

 

ATOPALM 130+ Concentrated Intensive Facial Moisturizer with Panthenol is a rich moisturizer created with extremely dry, sensitive skin types. While most people prefer lighter moisture in summer, ultra sensitive skin still needs extra protection and moisture to remain comfortable. The added benefit of panthenol also makes this cream perfect for use on mild to moderate irritation caused by environmental elements.

Adding any of these sensitive skin care products to your daily summer skin care routine will go a long way toward keeping skin looking and feeling healthy all summer long.

Summertime Skin Care from Atopalm

Moisture MistKeeping skin safe in summer shouldn’t be a full-time job! Don’t let summertime skin care overwhelm you; protect your skin and keep it healthy with Atopalm.

Dry and sensitive skin types are very prone to sun damage. For dry skin, summer sun exposure can cause it to become even drier. Not only does the sun dry out skin, but pool chlorine and salt water can also zap what little moisture your dry skin is clinging to!

When it comes to sensitive skin, sun, chlorine, and saltwater also cause issues; however, these issues can sometimes be even more extreme than those for dry skin. For starters, sensitive skin conditions like rosacea can be worsened by heat alone, and become even more irritated with direct sun and water exposure. Then there are those with conditions like polymorphous light eruption, which is an allergic reaction to sun exposure. The list goes on!

To keep things short and sweet, here’s some great news: most summertime dry skin conditions and sensitive skin issues can be addressed with the same two Atopalm products! These two skin care products aren’t the end-all-be-all, but they are definitely the go-to products for summertime skin care.

First, choose a shade (Light or Medium) of our BB Cream to wear each day. Atopalm BB Cream perfects the skin with mineral pigment while giving an extra dose of MLE on top of your daily skin care moisturizer. Most importantly for summer, though, is the fact that it contains SPF and skin care antioxidants to protect the skin and prevent sun damage and irritation. The best defense is a good offense, and skin care is no exception to this rule!

If you do fall victim to sun damage, or you find that swimming has done a number on your dry, sensitive skin, it’s time to turn to product number two: Moisture Mist. Atopalm Moisture Mist is a fine mist spray that can be used from head to toe. It contains a slew of soothing and moisturizing ingredients that replenish hydration in no time while deeply comforting damaged skin. Moisture Mist is a must-have product for every beach bag!

Adding these two sensitive skin care products to your daily summer skin care routine will go a long way toward keeping skin looking and feeling healthy all summer long.
