Apart from its nutritional properties, it is also gelifying, stabilizing and emulsifying, allowing to improve the textures of the ingredients without modifying its flavor.

Many people use the plant as a supplement in a balanced diet because it promotes normal cholesterol levels, promotes cardiovascular health, aids digestion and strengthens the immune system.

How to take it?

If you are looking for your own recipes with this superfood, you only have to peel the leaves well, without leaving any traces of green peel, and leave them to soak for at least one night.

Once this is done, aloe vera must be treated like any other vegetable, even if it can consume the flowers of the plant, keeping its properties intact.

At this point, from Atlantia we recommend taking special care when taking aloe vera in children and pregnant women because we do not know 100% of its effects in this band.

Why does he show up acne?

Acne is considered a disease that affects the sebaceous glands of the skin. Although it does not cause pain, in many occasions it becomes a nightmare for those who suffer from it because it can occur chronically, leaving scars and may even affect esthetics.

The causes of acne onset are varied. Although it may appear due to stress, pollution, poor diet or bad cleaning and hygiene habits, in most cases it is linked to hormonal changes, which causes an imbalance in the activity of the sebaceous glands.

In addition, after each day it is important to rest and sleep enough hours to recover energy and be 100%.

It’s funny, but it takes an average of 60 days for our brain to assimilate a routine. Although most of the time in just seven days some actions are automated, it takes a few more weeks to consider it a habit.

Be careful with injuries

When we resume physical exercise, we can’t do it crazy. One of the most important things to keep in mind is to have a good technique, body awareness and elastic capacity, depending on the exercise we are going to practice.

Rest between each exercise, hydration, controlling intensity or avoiding over-training are also some of the recommendations to take into account when talking about sport.

Skin care after summer

TRAS-VERANO

Clean, exfoliate, moisturize and nourish. These are, in theory, the main guidelines for recovering the skin after the excesses of these last summer months.

At this time of year, our skin has been exposed to continuous stress due to external factors such as changes in temperature, humidity or excessive solar action, among others. For this reason, it is important to follow guidelines to recover healthy and hydrated skin and welcome the new season.

Cleans and exfoliates

It also has the ability to act on the fibroblast (skin cell) for its growth, activates the microcirculation and stimulates re-epithelialization (to heal tissues).

Feeding in summer also counts

HEALTHAs complement is also the feeding. The ideal way is to consume antioxidant foods rich in beta-carotenes such as spinach or carrots, among others. Fruits, dairy products or nuts are also good options as a supplement to a balanced diet.

On the other hand, it is essential to drink at least a liter and a half of water a day, with the aim of recovering the hydration lost during the summer months.

With these recommendations we will have the skin ready for the autumn and winter months although it is important to take care of it throughout the year.

 

This summer, cares and moisturizes your hands

MANOS

It`s usually said that our hands are our presentation letter. While it´s true that we must look after them throughout the year, in summer this part of the body suffers more than normal due to continuous exposure to factors such as high temperatures, the sun, the sea and sand.

Tips for complete care

Another recommendation is to filing nails regularly to prevent bacteria from accumulating and be able to cause greater evils.

Protect them with Atlantia!

The claim of cosmetics without parabens

PARABENES

Today, around a 70-90% of cosmetic products contain among their ingredients those known as parabens. Increasingly, questions arise about whether these organic substances are or are not beneficial for our body and especially when we talk about cosmetics, for our skin.

While it is true that they are substances that are approved by health authorities as OCU in 90% of the cases parabens have been artificially synthesized, which causes deterioration and their status as “organic”.

Why aren´t they “recommended”?

As we noted, handling of parabens result in an artificial product, although of very low, it does have a degree of toxicity.

The role of parabens isn´t more than aiding to maintain a product in good conditions once it has been opened. Their bactericidal and fungicidal properties help to increase the durability of the product and to avoid its deterioration caused by microorganisms, fungi or bacteria.

The most commonly used parabens respond to name Methylparaben and Ethylparaben or also Butylparaben and proylparaben, which are allowed so far, but always in moderation.

We can find these substances also in personal hygiene products as deodorants and depilatories, but even some foods as sweeteners, confectionery or pates, which have them integrated.

Paraben free, always on the label

There´re two types of parabens: organic (found in fruits and organic) which present no problem because they´re metabolized naturally and synthetic, chemicals and those that should be avoided.

In this regard, one must be cunning. Even if a product contains references as organic or natural product, it doesn´t determine that´s free from Parabens if it´s not printed on the product label.

We must be aware that all ingredients contained in a product will go through the tissues of the skin and this affects our health more than we imagined.

While it´s true that natural cosmetics have a somewhat higher price than conventional ones, the results are always beneficial in the long run and your skin will show grateful.
