After the sun, comes the good stuff

As soon as the first rays of sunshine begin to warm up, we are flooded with information about the importance of using sunscreen to prevent irreparable damage to the skin. In fact, dermatologists insist that we should use sunscreen all year round, and not just a few minutes before sunbathing back and forth on the beach or swimming pool… If the day is cloudy, don’t risk it, the ultraviolet rays still reach us!

We know what to do prior to the sun exposure, but how do we take care of our skin afterwards? There is no doubt about it: moisturize and soothe. And that’s why the After Sun has no equal. Unlike moisturizing and nourishing creams, the After Sun also includes a calming action (due to its high Aloe vera content); it helps to regenerate the skin and has a refreshing effect, relieving symptoms in the burned skin.

Prolong tanning with After Sun

Sun damage can make itself visible after some time and the After Sun also prepares it for new sun exposures, making it more resistant. They help to prolong your tan and some of them even contain active ingredients that act as anti-cellulite, firming or anti-ageing.

You can find all sorts of After sun’s in the market: lotion, gel, spray, serum, mousse…. When applying it, it is important to examine yourself, as deep skin layers could be damaged by the sun. The damage can go from a slight redness of the area to the onset of pain and blistering (if this is the case, try applying Pure Aloe vera Gel instead and see your doctor).

Atlantia After Sun is a soothing milk which contains 100% pure and organic Aloe Vera from the Canary Islands. It helps to relieve the burning and redness of the skin caused by the sun, calms the skin and provides softness, accelerating the regeneration process of the skin.

It is easy to use: massage the damaged areas until it is fully absorbed, several times a day and until the damage goes away. In any case, the best protection is avoiding prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays.

after sun aloe veraTIP: If you want to increase the feeling of freshness provided by Atlantia After Sun, always keep it in the fridge. Take a nice shower after sunbathing, making sure you remove any traces of sunscreen, salt, chlorine, etc. and apply it all over your body without skimping… Your skin will love it!

In Atlantia we say NO to products tested in animals

More than 100 million animals are treated cruelly each year in laboratories with the objective of testing ingredients whose final product will reach the customer imminently.

Beforehand, since 2009 the sale and manufacture of cosmetic products in the European Union that have been tested on animals is totally prohibited. Four years later, the testing of toxic products was also banned, although there is an extension until the year 2023 for its full and final implementation.

What does it consist of and how does it affect animals?

atlantia2Testing animals involves handling animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits, dogs, cats and even chickens, in most cases,making them try products and see the reaction they produce in them.

Some of the practices that are carried out are those of observing changes in the skin, the hair or seeing the functioning of the organs through practices that range from inhaling hair lacquers to forcibly introducing dentrifics into the stomach of the animals.

Differentiate whether a product is or is not tested on animals is as simple as checking the label of the product and see if it has the “cruelty free” or “not tested on animals” seal. This means that neither the final product nor any of its ingredients have been tested and we will be looking at a product that is respectful and compassionate to animals.

Yes to cruelty free

atlantia3For all those who want to know what products are those that make tests on animals, there are also mobile applications that indicate whether or not they are cruelty free. Although some of these apps are paid, many others are free: Cruelty free, Bunny free, Choose cruelty or Happy bunny, among others.

Nowadays there are still many brands that test, but every time the trend towards makeup and natural cosmetics increases, which makes us tremendously happy, since from Atlantia we advocate the purity and naturalness of the products, without testing in animals and also without parabens.

Is it testing strictly necessary?

atlantia4Definitely not, since there are many other alternative methods to animal testing. An example of this is to do it through the creation of artificial tissues of cultured human cells and bacterial systems or computer simulations, among many other options.

Nowadays there are companies dedicated to the search for alternatives that do not involve tests on animals, but this requires a particular investment to achieve the objective. On the other hand, it is also necessary that the analyses of these “fictitious” experiments be 100% reliable and demonstrable so that they can be applied to the products without harming the public health.

What is the age to start taking care of our skin?

Age is a number and, although each person is a world and ages at a different pace and form, experts agree that the age to start taking care of the skin should not be later than 25 years.

The skin is the most significant organ of the body and the most exposed to external agents, which is why we must take care of it with greater responsibily. Some of these factors are stress, feeding, lack of sleep or continuous exposture to the sun, among others.

By ages

The first thing we need to know is what kind of skin we have. From there, the next step is to adapt your care according to the age range in which we find ourselves.

When your 20

atlantia8We could say that during our twenties the skin of the face is “impeccable”. It is true that there may be outbreaks of acne or other conditions, but it all depends on the type of skin. Therefore, the most important thing during this stage is prevention, especially against the sun´s rays.

When your 30

atlantia9This is the the moment in which the first signs of age on the skin begin to manifest in our skin: spots, loss of elasticity, changes in coloring… In this point is really essential to carry out fibrotensing, moisturizing treatments and include some weekly mask to hydrate and complete the daily routine to reduce wrinkles and maintain perfect skin.

When your 40

atlantia10Irremediably, the skin begins to look flabby and tired especially in the area of the face and neck. After 40 years, the key is cell renewal, as the face begins to blur and the goal is to recover part of thar elasticity, especially in the eye area.

When your 50

atlantia11At this point, the signs of expression and wrinkles are broader, there are spots, and the skin tends to be drier. It is an age of hormonal changes, which manifests itself in the state of the skin.

Whatever the age range you are in, the priority is always to protect yourself against the sun´s rays and carry out a proper hydratation routine.

Daily routine

Skin care should be a mandatory task at least twice a day, following the steps below and without age restrictions.

atlantia12– Cleaning: practically the most important. Face cleaning with a specific product such as our cleansing mousse, for all skin types and without allergens. Its use, at least twice a day and especially at night, since when sleeping is when the skin regenerates.

– Exfoliation: at least one a week, since this way dead skin cells are eliminated at the same time we regenerate it, we provide shine and softness.

atlantia13– Hydration: always adapted to our skin type and with the aim of avoiding dryness and wrinkles, hydration is a priority in skin care.

– Sun protection: Regardless of the time of year, sun protection is always mandatory.

In general terms, the skin will look healthy if, apart from pampering you with the steps mentioned above, we eat healthy food, drink water or exercise, among others.

PIES

Take care your feet for summer with aloe vera

Although our feet are a part of our body that we must be looked after in any season of the year, now that summer and high temperatures are coming, we have to give them more attention since they tend to be one of the most forgotten areas in terms of care.

In addition, feet are the part of the body that works the most, since they support our weight and allows us to move while they absorb and amortize any impact that the body receives from the ground.

In Atlantia, we help you prepare your feet with aloe vera for this time of the year, giving you some recommendations to keep them healthy and hydrated.

STOMP WITH ATLANTIA

crema-pies-reparadoraThe heat makes you expose your feet to surfaces with extreme humidity such as beaches and pools, facilitating the appearance of fungi and bacteria.

Also, external factors such as high temperatures, air contact or barefoot walking are common in the summer, and they can cause cracks and calluses on our heels.

In Atlantia, we offer you our Crema Reparadora para Pies which, thanks to its pure Aloe Vera juice safeguards and pampers your feet from the inside.

Its simple way of use is to apply the cream twice a day with completely clean and dry feet, performing a light massage until the complete absorption of the product.

HEALTHY NAILS AND FEET

Our nails must have the same, if not more, care that our feet. Aside from keeping them healthy, we must moisturize them to avoid possible infections, keeping good hygiene, short fingernails, and wearing comfortable shoes. In this way, we avoid common problems in this area of the body such as “athlete’s foot.”

For this reason, our foot repair cream can be used as a preventive treatment to such conditions, applying it several times a day and with a light massage.

Thanks to the aloe vera in its composition, this cream manages to heal quickly the affected areas as it keeps them hydrated.

Aloe vera, also in male cosmetics

The use of male cosmetics has increased more than ten points in recent years since beauty and skin care has been consolidated in the market regardless of gender.

The main factors of skin aging are age, fatigue, poor nutrition or the absence of physical exercises, but if we talk about the physiological differences between men and female’s skins, we can determine that the thickness, firmness, and Sebaceous secretion are different.

At Atlantia, we offer an exclusive line for men; pure aloe vera products designed for the care of the skin with soothing, moisturizing, and regenerating assets.

AFTER-SHAVE, ANTI-AGEING, AND ANTI-FATIGUE

Sin-título-1After shaving, the skin tends to lose its moisture and it dries out, causing an aggressive effect and, sometimes, irritation and redness.

For these cases, Atlantia’s Ultra Comfort Aftershave is ideal for cooling and relieve shaved areas, as well as to keep them hydrated. In addition, its minerals-lysine composition produces collagen and helps repair the skin.

On the other hand, we offer Active Energy, a leading product ahead of nature, since it conceives an anti-aging formula, which prevents aging and provides elasticity to the skin (avoids the appearance of a tired and weary face).

As a complement to this routine for facial care, Atlantia offers Acti Energy Eyes, a product that prevents and reduces lines and wrinkles of expression in the contour of the eyes, a very sensitive and, most of the time, forgotten area of the face.

VITAMINA-C

Vitamin C in skin care

It has always been said that vitamin C is one of the most complete nutrients due to its multifunctionality and the numerous benefits that it brings to the body and, above all, to the skin. Thanks to it the formation of collagen, wound healing or protection against the sun rays is much easier to our bodies, in addition to acting as a natural antioxidant.

As it could not be otherwise, cosmetic brands have gradually incorporated into their formulas the already considered gold ingredient, helping to create the definitive product.

FOOD AND COSMETIC

It is important to note that to see an optimal result and to be able to acquire all its properties, Vitamin C should be consumed in food, but especially should be used in cosmetics for the skin.

Vitamin C contained in food (especially in fruits and vegetables), Has a very short life, since the body absorbs what it needs at the moment and discards the rest, Without being distributed to all of the organs of the body.

Therefore, we must combine their nutritional use with that of cosmetics, since in this latter case; it guarantees its effectiveness by integrating the product directly on the skin.

ALOE + VITAMIN C

In Atlantia we advocate for the natural and the benefit that it has on our organism. That is why the vast majority of our products, in addition to pure aloe vera, contain Vitamin C as part of their components, as they help block the damage caused by free radicals and helps to improve the quality of the skin.

VITAMINA-CIf we talk about their benefits separately, aloe vera works as a moisturizing, regenerating and anti bacterial formula. For its part, Vitamin C prevents the premature aging and the damage to the DNA of cells, among other functions.

Thus, the combination of both natural assets results in the formula ideal for maintaining a beautiful and luminous skin.

Products like our Pure Gel, Regenerage, Superdefense, Eye Perfect and many more, are some of those that integrate pure aloe vera and Vitamin C, guaranteeing their effectiveness.

Bet on the natural cosmetics of Atlantia and get all these products and many more in our online store.

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.
