Aloe vera: a relief after laser hair removal

We go out less, we wear more clothes… Winter is, undoubtedly, the time when we least “show” our skin; However, would you believe us if we tell you that this time of the year is when laser hair removal centers receive more customers? You are quite right!

sesion-de-laserThe truth is that, in these months in which the skin is less tanned and exposed to the sun, the treatment to remove your hair with a laser is more effective. So yes: not depending on the season, it is quite usual that some side effects appear after the treatment that, depending on the type of skin and hair, can be longer or shorter… The most common are perifollicular edema (small swellings around the exit of the hair) and erythema (generalized inflammation of the skin), two reactions that cause discomforts such as itching or redness, and that can be alleviated using pure Aloe Vera like the one that you will find in Atlantia.

Aloe vera: soothing, antiseptic and regenerative

Thanks to its properties, more and more professionals recommend Aloe Vera as a treatment to soothe the skin, favor its regeneration, and prevent infections after laser hair removal. Hereunder, we will present some of its many benefits:

– It works as a natural antiseptic, thanks to its bactericidal power.

– It helps cells growth, favoring the regeneration of the skin.

– It has anti-inflammatory and emollient properties.

– It improves circulation in affected areas, thanks to its ability to dilate blood vessels.

– It nourishes and moisturizes the skin, making it smooth and soft.

Pure Aloe vera gel

To enjoy all the advantages offered by Aloe Vera in the post-laser treatment, and not lose any of its properties, experts recommend using 100 % pure natural gels. In this sense, in Atlantia we have products made with pure Aloe Vera grown in the Canaries, such as our PURE ALOE VERA GEL for protection and body care. Thanks to the ecological cultivation and the meticulous production process—extracted directly from the leaves of Aloe Vera— this gel maintains all the active principles of the plant, becoming the best ally to soothe and treat our skin after hair removal.

PURE-GEL

How to use it? Very simple: just apply it -as many times as necessary- over the area to be treated, performing a gentle massage until it is completely absorbed… That’s it!

Do not suffer anymore from irritations and discomfort from laser hair removal. With our advice and the best Aloe Vera of the Canary Islands, next summer you will be able to look radiant, healthy, and hairless!

Perfect and hydrated hands also in the winter!

A smile… and a handshake. In many cases, our hands are our best introduction to others and, without knowing it, they speak a lot about us. Therefore, keeping them healthy and taking care of them is essential, not only for our image and aesthetics but also—and above all—to feel good about ourselves.

Hydration, a fundamental part

hands in the winterHaving perfect hands is not always easy. The truth is that, because they are always exposed, they are one of the most sensitive parts of our body and the more exposed to changes in temperature, so it is common that, in the winter, they tend to become more red and cracked. In addition, not only the cold but also the effect of the heating or daily tasks (they are constantly working!), end up making a dent in them and cause them to lose some of their smoothness. The most common effect in our hands is the loss of elasticity, because of dehydration, so it is essential to hydrate them so that the skin remains flexible.

Furthermore, like the hands, the nails are also constantly exposed to the aggressions of the environment, so they are more vulnerable to suffer alterations that make them weak and brittle. The Onychomycosis (a superficial infection of the nails that causes scaling and color changes) or the unsightly hangnails (small pieces of skin that arise around the nail because of the peeling) are just some of the discomforts that can arise if not carry out some minimal care.

Therefore, it is necessary that you take care of your hands and keep them hydrated… following these tips that we bring to you!

Keeping your hands protected

Watch out for the sinks. Hot water and detergents or soaps damage the hydrolipidic film that protects the skin of the hands, leaving them dry and unprotected; it is important that you always wear gloves when you carry out some work of this type.

Dry them well. Hygiene is essential to show healthy and beautiful hands, but just as important to wash them is to dry them afterward with a towel, as humidity promotes the development of bacteria.

Protect them from low temperatures. Especially on colder days, do not go outside without your gloves.

Aloe Vera hand cream

aloe vera hand creamAlong with the advice, we have just given to you, you should not forget this vital step: hydrate your hands with Aloe Vera to repair, nourish, and restore the protective film of the skin.

At Atlantia we have our HAND AND NAILS CREAM, formulated with Aloe Vera from the Canary Islands, for the treatment of dry and cracked hands. A cream that, in addition to providing the moisturizing and regenerating action of Aloe Vera, provides a protective film on the skin that shields it from water and other agents. The trick? When you apply it, start with a good massage on the tips of the fingers and ends on the forearms… this will favor the absorption of the cream and will revive the circulation in your hands!

Now you know: this winter, Atlantia’s pure Aloe Vera will lend you a hand!

PACK FOR MEN – Men’s Care

pack-menDo men age better than women? Generally, yes. Men’s skin is more resistant, secretes a more abundant hydrolipidic film and is more elastic than women’s skin. To that, we must add that men produce a high level of male hormones until a very advanced age.

The sun and the lifestyle (stress, tobacco, alcohol, lack of sleep…) are the main reasons for the aging of the skin. It may look weary and lifeless. Therefore, men’s skin does need the care to prevent and delay aging.

With our PACK FOR MEN you can also give the gift of health with our products made precisely to meet the needs of men’s skin. This set includes:

  • 50 ml Active Energy

Skin Care Tips at Christmas

cuidado-pielA considerable increase of large meals, fun toasts, controversy in following the trends, and alleviate the seasonal cold…

We all know that Christmas is a time where healthy and balanced diet disappears, alcohol consumption is accentuated, and low temperatures come from the winter. A set of factors that directly affect our skin’s condition.

That’s why in Atlantia, and with the help of our products made with pure Aloe Vera from the Canary Islands, we provide you with some tips to take care of your skin during Christmas despite everything we have said before.

Cleanse Your Skin Daily

During Christmas, we include more fat in our diet. Therefore, cleaning our skin is essential to eliminate the impurities that are generated during these days. Wash your face twice a day and remove your makeup properly. Our FACIAL CLEANSING MOUSSE, enriched with Aloe Vera, ensures a smooth and efficient cleansing. Also, it does not contain soap or dry the epidermis.

Use Sunscreen

During the winter, our skin receives constant UV rays. Many people make the mistake of thinking that we must protect ourselves from the sun only in the summer. Avoid premature aging using a daily protective cream. Our famous HYDRAPLUS FP 15 protects your skin from sun damage with a single UVA/UVB screen.

Moisturise Your Face

Changes in temperature, stuffy environments, alcohol consumption cause significant dehydration in our skin. Drinking lots of water will be vital to regain a smooth and healthy complexion, as well as daily use of a facial moisturizer.

Get a Peeling

Peelings performed by dermatologists are totally useful during this season; the sun won’t cause any damage while our skin regenerates. After getting a peeling, you will be able to clean up your face of impurities for the coming year, beyond what you can do at home.

Also at Atlantia, we have one of our most useful products: REGENERAGE, a regenerating cream with AHA. It is a cream that fights multiple external agents (pollution, stress, sun…) that accelerate the skin aging. REGENERAGE helps improve wrinkles and expression marks.

Tips to Have a Radiant Skin in Winter with Aloe

The chlorine in the pools or the intense hours under the sun is no longer a problem to maintain a healthy and radiant skin with Aloe Vera… Now there are other problems! With the arrival of the winter months, the cold, the abuse of heating, or abrupt changes in temperature are some of the main enemies of our skin.

Winter season also coincides with some of the most important celebrations of the year: Christmas and all your dinners with family, friends, companions… That is why paying attention to our beauty habits and daily care is of vital importance.

Daily Skin Care

From Atlantia, we want to provide you with some simple tips to always maintain a radiant skin using Aloe Vera and combating the extreme winter weather:

  • Aloe vera for cold1. Clean your face twice a day. A facial cleaning both in the morning, to remove excess fat accumulated while sleeping; and at night, to reduce the segregated impurities on the face during the day.
  • 2. Moisturise your skin. Hydration is always necessary. However, the cold and sudden changes in temperature aggravate the dryness of the skin. The Aloe Vera pure gel is an underlying asset to improve the levels of moisturising in your skin.
  • 3. Soften premature wrinkles. Increasing the consumption of vitamin C and antioxidants favours these wrinkles significantly. Also, Atlantia also has key products to help you fight premature wrinkles on the face: REGENERATE, regenerating cream with AHA for women, and ACTIVE ENERGY, active anti-aging treatment for men.
  • 4. Protect your hands. The skin of the hands is the part of your body that most suffers during this time of year due to its direct contact with low temperatures, the wind… Do not allow your hands to crack in the cold. Use our hand Aloe cream for dry and chapped hands.
  • 5. Avoid sudden changes in temperature. Another key factor in achieving a smooth, moisturised skin during winter is to prevent, as much as possible, sudden changes in outdoor and indoor temperatures. It is also advisable not to abuse heating at home.

We use airless containers to maintain our Aloe Vera

cremas-hombre-aloeAt Atlantia, we strive to maintain the highest quality standards in each and every one of our products. Within our manufacturing process, we are at the forefront of innovative technology. Such is the case that we use the so-called airless container in some of our products.

We refer to a type of container that works through a continuous vacuum system. The airless container is used to maintain current all the properties and principles of the content: eco cultivated Aloe vera, in our case.

The main benefit of this type of container is that, because it removes any air that may have contact with the product, it avoids the tendency to oxidation, aging, or contamination.

– Avoid air contact with the product.

– Preserves all the Aloe vera’s properties.

– No oxidation, aging, or contamination.

The containers used in Atlantia products have been designed considering some principles apart from those named with airless technology:

We use containers airless to reduce and avoid preservatives Click To Tweet

– We have designed our containers that they are easy to use; obtaining easily the amount of cream to be applied or consumed directly.

– We have opted for simplicity and naturalness in the labeling, aiming to provide clear and concise information about the properties of the product, how to use it, and how to maintain it.

esta-de-moda-lo-ecologico

Is “the ecological” in fashion?

It seems that in our today’s society, all issue that is cataloged as “eco”, is fashionable. A tendency that probably comes from (finally) the awareness of the people regarding the reality of climate change, the improvement of the alimentary habits and, even, the new natural beauty rituals (yes, we look after ourselves).

aloe-vera-ecologicoThis new vision of the environment is necessary and healthy. As maintaining a plenty and healthy life is the most demanded purpose each December 31th in the 21th century. Supermarkets, grocery stores or markets area already reserving spaces for the items labeled as “ecologic”.

This new vision of the environment is necessary and healthy. However, for a product to be considered ecologic must be produced in compliance with a series of techniques that exclude the chemical synthetized products employment (as pesticides or fertilizers); preserving the environment and maintaining the natural properties of the gender.

We love “eco fashion”!

The boom of the “eco products” is a reality. In Spain the greatest part of the national ecological surface corresponds to the olive oil, cereals and legumes, followed by some dry fruits and grapevine.

Also, it is essential to make some room for the ecologic cultivation of Aloe Vera in that list. Especially in the Canary Islands, which gather the unique conditions needed for an authentic quality plant. That’s why the Archipelago has turned into the main European region for the Aloe vera cultivation and production.

We sell eco cultivated Aloe vera

At Atlantia we fervently bet on the ecologic agriculture as an asset for the ground fertility and the subsequent nutritive improvement, both of our organisms and the skin. So we elaborate all our products using as raw material the Aloe vera that comes from the ecologic cultivation from the Canary Islands.

Atlantia, eco cultivated Aloe vera from the Canary Islands Click To Tweet

aloe-vera-atlantiaThis way, in the manufacturing of our products we use pure Aloe vera juice, directly extracted of the leaves of the plant (not the ones that comes from concentrated products). This ensures that the properties of the plant are not altered in the manufacturing process, giving a final product that is competitive and ideal for our care in the inside and the outside.

Get into the “ecologic” fashion and buy Aloe vera products produced through the real ecologic cultivation. In our Research and Development Department in Atlantia we continuously work to improve and create new products, offering that way the most natural and professional to all our customers.

Aloe-vera-cocina

Aloe vera works its way into the kitchen!

So far we have learned many of the benefits of applying the Aloe vera plant to the skin: as a soother for burns, due to its strong moisturising power, and an optimum wound healer…But what do we know about the advantages of ingesting Aloe vera?

There are many experts who have backed the study (still in preliminary stages) of this plant, also known as sabila, in colon cancer prevention. The possible effects of Aloe on obesity and diabetes have even been considered. Speculations that, today, we can’t say with certainty. But we do hope to be able to do so in the near future.

Nutritional properties of Aloe vera

Recetas-con-Aloe-veraJuices, yoghurts, jams…The major food brands are aware of the potential of Aloe vera and are starting to include it in their products. And when the pure gel of this plant is mixed with other foods, it becomes an insipid ingredient, tasteless.

However, Aloe vera preserves all its nutritional and beneficial properties for our body in these foods. Such as its high content of minerals: potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. It also contains vitamin E, B vitamins, vitamin C and folic acid.

We must also highlight the content of aloin (anthraquinone) in this plant, a type of substance found in plants with yellow-orange pigments and that stimulates bowel movement, preventing and reducing constipation for those who sufferer from it.

Although aloin has been used for the treatment of oral infections, as a natural laxative or to alleviate gastritis, it could be a toxic substance if consumed over the recommended amount (10 ppm: parts per million). So the amount consumed should be in moderation. It may even cause an allergic reaction in certain types of people.

Juice extracted from Aloe vera

At Atlantia we’re not going to offer any less, so (currently) we have BIALOE, a juice made with the purest Aloe vera of the Canary Islands. This drinkable product is a fairly complete and natural nutritional supplement with positive effects for the proper functioning of our body.

Receive comprehensive care thanks to the juice extracted from the filleted Aloe vera leaves, eco grown in the Canary Islands. Due to organic farming and the meticulous production process, optimal preservation of all the active ingredients present in the inner leaf is achieved.

Below, you can see the method of use we recommend at Atlantia:

How to include Aloe vera in my recipes

Our country’s great chefs have dared to add Aloe vera to their recipes. Why are we going to be an exception? Try the Aloe vera jelly in juices, smoothies, creams and soups. Even buying it in small cubes you can make a lush (and very healthy) salad.

We always recommend that you remove with caution the Aloe vera gel intended for preparing food, as by doing this you’ll avoid the yellow part of the Aloe vera, which is quite bitter, sour and acts as a laxative.

Aloe Vera shampoo for summer hair care

Hair responds to our mood, health and how we treat it. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables helps keep our hair soft and shiny.

That’s why throughout the year we look after our hair with great care: masks, oils, hydrating treatments at trusted hair salons… However, none of this is effective enough if when summer arrives we ignore the SOS our hair cries out.

A lack of care can reflect a rougher, dull and discoloured hair Click To Tweet

After marathon tanning sessions, diving in pools with high levels of chlorine or aggressive hairdrying, our lush and voluminous hair ends up becoming matted and mop-like with little life.

Summer hair care

Pelo-dañadoDuring the summer season we diligently entrust ourselves to care for our skin from the harmful rays of the sun, leaving the protection of our hair in the background. A neglection of the hair reflected in rougher, dull and discoloured hair.

It’s important to know how to care for our hair in summer, not only because of increased exposure to sunlight, but also due to sea water or chlorinated pools. Also, if we use dyes, protection must be more thorough.

Avoiding the hairdryer and letting our hair dry outdoors is one of the most effective methods for maintaining shine and a silky feel. Likewise, using a specific product for those beach days helps keep both the hair and scalp healthy.

Shampoo with Aloe vera

champú-aloe-veraRecovering the shine and volume of our hair isn’t a ‘quick fix’ job; it needs time to restructure and repair. That’s why at Atlantia we have a shampoo enriched with Aloe vera for normal hair care throughout the year.

With Canarian Aloe vera and a very gentle cleansing base, it leaves the hair soft and conditioned. This is a product for daily hair washing. Its very soft cleansing base, also rich in natural surfactants, allows our hair to retain its shine and balance. Furthermore, it respects the pH of the skin and scalp.

Active ingredients

Aloe vera from the Canary Islands: 100% ecologically grown with 0% added water

Provides minerals, amino acids, and hydrating and regenerating tissue action vitamins (A, B, C)

Decyl Glucoside: surfactant derived from glucose. Very gentle cleansing base

Surfactant derived from soy proteins: reduces skin irritation. Conditions hair

cicatrices-en-verano

Watch out! Be careful with scars in summer

After a surgical procedure, our mission is to ensure that the scarring begins to dwindle. However, this gets complicated when tans and long swims in the sea are just around the corner. Summer is a crucial period for the care and treatment of recent scars.

Skin takes some time to recover its natural form. The wound healing process takes around two years. In addition, genetic factors like skin type or the location and extent of the injury itself, are crucial factors for development and healing.

Sun and scars: bad combination

exposición-sol-cicatricesScars from surgical wounds are often more sensitive to the sun. So it’s important to avoid the sun for at least 6 months, as you run the risk of the scar remaining permanently pigmented.

For this reason, it’s recommended that the scarring be continuously covered by high protection sunscreen, among other remedies against radiation in the summer season. Likewise in winter, although we don’t see much sun, ultraviolet rays are also present and act on our skin.

“In and out” bathing

Long baths are not advisable during the first 15 days of healing. Our intention is to mitigate the heat, it’s best to ensure that said bath is as short as possible, because the skin of the wound hasn’t yet acquired its permanent consistency. So lengthening time of contact with water is contraindicated.

Frequent or prolonged immersion lengthens the healing period and alters its appearance, albeit transiently: more pronounced scarring with a more intense colour…

Hydrate nonstop

It’s recommended that the skin always be well hydrated, especially after surgery. At Atlantia we have products made with pure Aloe vera eco grown in the Canary Islands, and that even have 100% pure Rosehip oil of high regenerative capacity; thereby achieving a faster and more effective healing process.

REGESTIMUL: Aloe vera and Rosehip cell regeneration

REGESTIMUL

Cream that thoroughly improves, nourishes, hydrates and cares for the skin. It deeply repairs all types of scars and burns. With 100% Pure Rosehip oil (Rosa rubiginosa), of high regenerative capacity that helps improve skin tone and texture, and ecologically farmed Aloe vera juice of the Canary Islands.

SUPERDEFENSE: Triple action moisturising cream

SUPERDEFENSE

Rich texture cream formulated with shea butter, Aloe vera and vitamin E. Aloe vera strengthens the skin’s natural defense systems. Shea butter nourishes and repairs the skin. Vitamin E is an effective antioxidant that protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals.
