The best weather in the world. The best aloe for your skin.

Some days ago we knew about this particular news: a hotel located in Gran Canaria paid tribute to a German tourist couple, who has visited the island uninterruptedly for the last 25 years during their summer and winter holidays. Just as them, a large number of people (foreigners and nationals) choose the Canary Islands to break out of the routine and the reasons therefore are for every taste: kilometres of snow-white beaches, clear blue sky, plenty of outdoor activities, a relaxed lifestyle and so on.

As the promotional video of the Canary Islands goes: “Here you get the good things about summer all year around”.The cheerful and open nature of the Canary islanders is credited to the climate of the Islands: living with an average temperature of 24ºC, not too cold in winter and not too hot in summer, is a real luxury.

IMG_4089-minIt has been proved that the weather has direct impact on our emotions: feeling the warm sun on your skin, breathing fresh air, walking barefoot on the sand or gazing at the sky full of stars is a source of strength and regeneration.

But even so, the benefits of the Canary Islands climate go beyond that… It is also the reason for having the best quality Aloe vera in the world!

Aloe vera, privilege of the Canary Islands

Aloe vera requires plenty of sunlight and a warm, dry and windy environment. The southern part of the Canary Islands meets perfectly all these conditions: long hours of sunshine throughout the year, stable temperatures, very little rainfall and the constant trade winds. This exceptional climate, along with the volcanic soil of the islands, very porous and with lots of minerals, makes the archipelago one of the best sites for growing Aloe vera. In fact, scientific studies have highlighted that aloe grown in the Canary Islands has a higher concentration of active components than the one grown in other regions.

The Aloe vera from Atlantia is 100% organic, not transgenic and cultivated without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides.

And a proof of all these fantastic things about the Canary Islands is that Ratolina, one of the most renowned beauty influencers has revealed her favourite spots of the Canary Islands… and the products she uses to take care of her skin!

So, this summer don´t forget to pack Atlantia in your luggage. An incredible health & well-being cocktail to provide your skin with vitality and all the essence of the Canary Islands.

Contour, the forgotten in facial care

The contour is considered the most fragile area of the face, as it is at least 10 times thinner than the rest. It is constantly exposed to external agents such as sun, cold or wind and is one of the first areas that ages before, which is more than enough reason to give it special care.

Its fine collagen and elastin fibers cause loss of elasticity over time, resulting in dreaded wrinkles, fine lines and premature fatigue.

Although there is no specific age to start taking care of your skin, experts agree that starting at age 25 is a good moment to do so, because is the moment when the skin star to change.

DEPILACION-ALOE

Aloe vera, natural soothing after depilation

Depilation is part of our daily lives whether we like it or not. Regardless of the way in which it is done, a series of recommendations must be taken into account before and after removing hair from the body.

From Atlantia, we recommend a daily skin care, but especially after depilation, because if the skin is not treated properly may appear irritations, redness and in the most extreme cases burns.

Before, during and after depilation

EXFOLIACION

The first step towards healthy, hydrated and, in this case, depilated skin is exfoliation. Ideally, take a hot shower to open the pores and then massage the areas to be shaved with a mane glove and some neutral soap or directly with an exfoliating product.

Once the hair is done, it will come out easily no matter what form it is used to remove it: blade, depilatory cream, electric razor, wax or laser. Ideally, taking a cold shower after depilation will help to soothe the skin and close the pores again, thus avoiding infection.

This Christmas choose the best option: Atlantia

Every year at Christmas we hear the same thing on the streets: “Seems like Christmas comes early every time.” and later: “What do I buy you? What size do you wear? Will you like it?”

The time of year has come when we forget the healthy and balanced diet, there is a greater consumption of alcohol and lower temperatures, factors that have a direct influence on skin care. This is the reason why we must remedy all these excesses naturally with the best cosmetics in the Canary Islands.

Cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing

EXFOLIATEWith the external factors that affect us this time of year, it is important to thoroughly cleanse the skin and exfoliate at least once a week.

With this last step described, you’ll get your skin to homogenize, retexturize and cleanse quickly and effectively, removing any residue that may have originated during the holiday season.

The exfoliation is a technique that should not miss in the routine of daily care since it eliminates dead cells and impurities, helping to achieve a radiant skin.

Hydration, key point

At Christmas, heavy environments cause the dreaded dehydration of the skin. This is why you should drink enough water and stay hydrated throughout the day.

Another important point is to protect ourselves from the sun’s rays with some natural cosmetics product with a factor of protection because, although more indirectly and at low temperatures, we continue to receive sunlight.

REGESTIMUL

Rose hip, the ideal choice for wound healing

What is it and why is it beneficial?

Rosehip, s a shrub native to Eastern Europe that has multiple health benefits.

Although rose hip it is usually used to reduce and regenerate skin problems such as scars or stretch marks, it can also be consumed as an infusion or oral route.

Many people know rose hip as the seed of eternal youth and it attracts attention with its pink flowers and reddish fruits with a slightly oval shape. Rather than its appearance, it is a widely used ingredient in natural cosmetic because of its condition as an essential oil rich in unsaturated fatty acids.

Rose hip on the skin

As we have commented throughout this post, rosehip has multiple uses, but the most common is topical use. Due to its positive properties, it repairs damaged skin thanks to the revitalizing action of skin cells, which produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

Its multiple vitamins (A, C, B1, B2 and F) combine with oleic and linolebranch rosehip with leaves isolated on white background.ic fatty acids, beta-carotene, tannins and antioxidant flavonoids, making it a highly beneficial shrub.

It also speeds up the healing of scars or, at least, reduces their appearance and prevents unpleasant and unsightly stretch marks.

Other topical benefits of rose hip are to slow down aging, improve pigmentation or revitalize the skin, providing a healthier appearance.

The fashion superfood wich everyone is looking for: aloe vera

Fashion superfood, that’s how many people define it today. With a total of 19 amino acids in its composition, aloe vera is a strong step and opts to become a superfood. Its minerals, vitamins, proteins, protective resins and polysaccharides make it one of the plants with the greatest benefits for the organism and human health.

Activation of the immune system, effective against diabetes and constipation are some of the benefits of the already considered superfood of the moment. At this point we are talking about superfood, which encompasses all those foods that provide beneficial nutrients and antioxidants for health.

How does aloe vera taste?

bigstock--173961103-min

Once we have removed the bitter part of the plant, called aloin, the taste of aloe vera is virtually imperceptible, perhaps with a bitter touch with a slight herbaceous flavor.

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.

Superfood quality

Aloe vera, an ideal plant to combat menstrual cramps

Menstruation is a temporary condition that women experience naturally every 28 days. In most cases, it is a process that causes aches and pains that, although they vary, can be present throughout the entire period. For this type of discomfort, aloe vera is a good ally.

Today, there are specific medicines to combat pain or reduce swelling, but since Atlantia we have always opted for the natural, such as the consumption of infusions or plants such as aloe vera to alleviate these discomforts.

Aloe vera, good for the stomach

bigstock-Aloe-Juice-86405741-min (1)

The purity of aloe vera manages to regulate the hormonal disorder that can cause menstruation, both in the case of dysmenorrhea and amenorrhea.

On the other hand, it is beneficial for the stomach, as it regulates the pH of the stomach and reduces acidity thanks to the vitamins of the B complex, present in the aloe gel.

Other useful uses of aloe make it help reduce inflammation, regenerate gastric mucous membranes or reduce constipation.

Betting on naturalness

During these days, specialists recommend drinking decaffeinated beverages, using heat in the abdomen or exercising, among other recommendations.

In this sense, the use of a thermal bag will reduce muscle spasms and provide relief in the affected area. On the other hand, a good exercise routine will help release endorphins, reducing menstruation symptoms.

Another option may be to take supplements such as calcium, vitamin D and magnesium as part of a healthy diet.

Complete your routine

BIALOESince Atlantia, we believe that Bialoe is the ideal choice to take care of you from the inside and benefit from all the properties of the plant in a fast and easy way.

End of summer, back to routine

It’s official. The summer ends and with it the return to the dreaded routine. It’s time to get back in shape after the summer excesses, which translates into rescuing those sneakers that have been in the back of the closet for so many weeks.

The return to sport and nomadic life is always costly and even more so when we have to leave the beach and the beach bar behind to replace it with gymnasium and healthy diet.

Willpower

Healthy living costs money, especially when we have had a long period of inactivity. The priority in these cases is to carry out a period of adaptation in order to gradually recover the rhythm.

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.

Also, don’t forget to warm up before starting and stretch once we’ve finished our training because, in this way, we avoid the annoying and common injuries.

Bialoe, as complement

bialoeTo complement a healthy routine, we encourage you to try Bialoe de Atlantia, our juice extracted from the filleted leaves of the aloe vera plant, with multiple benefits for the body.

With all the active ingredients present inside the leaf, Bialoe’s consumption helps to take care of our organism from the inside, in a natural way.

In addition, its natural aroma provides a much more pleasant taste and easier to drink (20ml in the morning mixed with a glass of juice or water).
