Karen’s Journey to Healthy Skin

Karen’s Journey to Healthy Skin

Hi, my name is Karen, and this is my journey to healthy skin.

I’d had acne as a teenager and in my 20’s, but things didn’t get really bad until I was about 34.

My hormonal acne was worse than anything I’d experienced before, and I set myself a mission to heal my skin and any hormonal imbalances that were contributing to my acne.

Many days I was so embarrassed by my skin with huge swollen red pimples all over my face that I didn’t even want to leave the house.

I tried everything.  I was swayed towards natural products at first but when I found that the products I tried didn’t work, I gave up on that and was prepared to try literally anything.

When I say I’ve tried everything, I really mean it.  I’ve tried the “no wash” method where you don’t touch you skin at all, not even with water, for at least 2 months.  I’ve tried the “oil cleansing” method for another couple of months.  I’ve tried lots of different natural products.  I’ve tried over the counter medicines and skin creams. I’ve been on prescription only drugs, ranging from the Pill, antibiotics (big mistake!), and Accutane – the most hardcore acne drug around, according to my doctor.

I found all of the drugs worked in varying degrees, but with in some cases huge side effects.  I had no acne, but my lips and mouth were so dry I could barely talk, my eyes were always dry and red, and basically I hadn’t found a real solution – I’d only covered up one problem and created another.

I desperately wanted clear skin and to be honest when I first heard of Atopis from a friend I wrote it off as just another natural product that probably doesn’t really work.

It was only when I started to read more about their scientific discoveries and inventions that I became interested.

My husband, who has a science background finally had a look at the scientific stuff for me and told me that the Atopis products actually used really different science to any other product I’d used – the fact that he was really impressed with the science was enough for me to take the plunge and buy some products to try.  (It takes a real scientific breakthrough or something special to impress him when it comes to that kind of thing!)

When my first product arrived, the Acne Prone Skin Cream, I put it on my skin straight away.  I could actually see a difference in my skin within the first few hours.  Even my husband commented after a couple of days that my skin was looking a lot better.

A few days after starting the Acne Prone cream, I did experience the breakouts that they talk about.  My skin did apparently need to get rid of a lot of junk that was already in there, and I got a bit disheartened after a few weeks!

I’m so thankful I decided to hang in there though.  A few more weeks later and my skin was looking better than it had for years.  I was still getting the occasional pimple but it was way better than it had been in recent memory.

At this point I got an email saying Atopis had come out with a cleanser and toner, so I decided to go all in and got the cleanser, toner, acne prone cream, and radiant balance (I even got one of their packs with an anti-aging cream and I still use this as my eye cream – it’s lasted ages!).

It wasn’t until I started to use all the products together that my skin showed a really huge improvement.

It must be true that their products work in synergy with each other because that definitely seemed to be the case for my skin.

I don’t wear any make up any more except sometimes mascara or eyeshadow – nothing to cover up my skin.

I never believed this would have been possible before trying Atopis.

Thank you so much to the Atopis team and especially Dr Iona who came up with it all – I don’t know where I’d be without you guys, probably still hiding out in my house!

Recovering A Clear & Clean Complexion: Jo’s Skincare Journey

Recovering A Clear & Clean Complexion: Jo’s Skincare Journey

Could you please give us some background on your skin and the journey you’ve been through with it? As a teenager I had great skin, I’m probably the opposite of most people! It only started to cause me problems as I got older actually, in my late 20’s really. I would constantly have a few spots that (I felt like) I needed to cover up, and my skin would occasionally flare up and get worse without a pattern. It’s always been an issue for me as I never felt like I could confidently go make-up free, and I always took concealer with me in my handbag. I ate well, drank loads of water, didn’t smoke, and did all the things you’re supposed to do to have good skin, but nothing worked.

How did you discover Atopis, and why did you decide to give it a go? I actually found it on Facebook and checked out the website, and thought it would be worth a shot as some of the success stories from their customers sounded just like me.

What product do you use? I use the Acne Prone Skin Cream.

Please describe how your skin was before Atopis and how it looks now. I always had spots around my chin as well as the occasional ones on my forehead and around my nose if I was having a really bad streak. They were always red and painful and not easy to hide, they would take days to calm down but by then I’d have more! Not fun when you’re in your mid 30’s and everyone else has finished with their acne stage. Now, I only get a spot or two occasionally but for the right reasons like if I eat badly or if I’m hormonal or even if it’s a super humid day – like ‘normal’ skin!

What changes have you noticed since you started using Atopis? My skin is clearer, and just seems generally happier if that makes sense? I have less fine lines too, which is a nice bonus, and my skin is firmer but soft at the same time.

When did you start noticing your skin changing, and how has it changed since? It took until I was halfway through my second tube to see real improvements. When using the first tube I had a solid few weeks of bad skin and I thought to myself ‘man this is just another product that doesn’t work for me’. Then I went back to read the reviews, and people were saying the same thing and said just to keep using it and it eventually improves. So I did, and it worked; they were right!

How does your skin feel? Happy!

How do you feel about your skin now compared to before? Also happy!

What is your current skincare routine? Exfoliate twice a week, wash face in the shower with goats milk/sensitive skin soap. I Moisturise my skin with the Acne Prone Skin Cream in the morning and on most nights.

What advice would you give to someone who is at the beginning of their skincare journey? Just keep going! The results will happen and they will be worth it!

 

Struggling with Breakouts?

Our Atopis Acne Prone Skin Cream is a 100% natural and safe way to clear pimples, enhance skin health, and help you to break out of the pimple cycle.

Getting treatment deep down into the pores is what our Acne Prone Skin Cream formula does, as it needs to break down the built-up dirt and slowly bring it to the surface so it can cleanse the pore with help from our immune system.

Once you have started with your Acne Prone Skin Cream, it may take up to two or over three weeks for the skin to restore its normal functions. The Acne Prone Skin Cream ensures that bit by bit bacteria comes to the surface, which is removed by your restored skin microflora and stops future bacteria build-up. 

It’s better to have small amounts of the bacteria release over time, so your skin microflora has time to respond and heal the skin. 

Everyone’s skin is unique, so depending on your skin type and amount of blocked pores, it will take a different amount of time.

How to Pop a Pimple the Right Way

How to Pop a Pimple the Right Way

When a pimple forms it can be painful, it can ruin our day, and we just want them to get off our face!

Even though it’s tempting – popping pimples makes the skin worse than it already was, therefore not touching our pimples is the best way to avoid worsening the situation!

Looking for a solution to your pimple popping? The Atopis Acne Prone Skin Cream goes beyond managing the signs and symptoms, and helps address the causes of Acne – for breakout-free skin.

What makes up a pimple? 

Pimples contain bacteria called Acne Propionic Bacterium. 

These bacteria are anaerobic, which means they can grow rapidly when there is a lack of air and can live on the surface of healthy skin without causing infection.

Pimples form when excess sebum oil is produced by the glands in the pores – too much sebum oil makes the acne-causing bacteria multiply out of control.

These fast-multiplying acne-causing bacteria produce enzymes that break down our skins proteins which causes the immune system to react and become inflammatory (and causes the pimple).

Because this new pimple contains acne-causing bacteria that inflames and breaks down our skins proteins, it should always be kept contained!

Have a read of our What Causes Breakouts blog to learn more about how and why acne occurs.

What happens when you squeeze a pimple?

Squeezing pimples can release these acne-causing bacteria onto the skin. 

Once released, the bacteria thrives on our skin and doubles in numbers quickly.

Our immune system is immediately disadvantaged when overrun by these acne-causing bacteria even popping just one pimple.

Doing it yourself can also cause an infection or darkening of the skin, so it’s best to just not go there!

Squeezing, poking and picking our pimples can cause the bacteria to dig deeper within the pore. This worsens the pimple and can make it stay on the skin longer than it would have – which can lead to permanent scarring.

Permanent Scarring happens when the blocked pore becomes swollen and infected, which starts stretching the pores follicular wall and causing it to break. When the skin eventually heals over, it makes too much skin tissue and which how skin scarring occurs.

Our fingers also carry a variety of bacteria, and when introducing this to the skin’s surface it can infect the pimple with new evil bacteria, causing the pimple it to become even more inflamed and bigger than before.

But what’s worse than that, is other bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus infecting the inflamed pore, aggravating the touched pimple and making new pimples form on the skin – thus the acne cycle continues!

To avoid this happening, try not to touch your face, and if you have to, wash your hands first!

How to Safely Pop A Pimple:

If you have to pop the pimple, here’s how to do it without the bacteria-party starting:

Yes – there is a proper way to do it!

You’ll need:

• Alcohol wipes or alcohol to sterilize
• A pin or needle
• A Lighter
• Tissues

Steps:

1. Wait until the white head forms on the top of the pimple. The white shows that the pus has collected under the surface.

2. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and scrub your nails to avoid spreading bacteria.

3. Get the pin or needle and use a lighter to sterilize it, then dip it in alcohol once it has cooled down.

4. Swab the area you are popping with alcohol, and apply some to your fingers.

5. Dry the fingers and apply tissue to the fingers that you will place on either side of the pimple when squeezing the pus out.

6. Gently push the pin to pierce the top and of the Whitehead.

7. Using the tissue covered fingers, gently squeeze either side of the pimple, pressing around the whitehead but avoiding contact with the whitehead.

8. If pus comes out, good! If it doesn’t, then leave it alone as it is not ready to be popped.

9. Finish by applying alcohol to the open pimple to disinfect it – be careful as it might sting!

All the best with your pimple popping endeavours! But just remember, leaving them alone and using suitable a skincare product that enhances the self-cleaning process is the best way to go.

Hormonal Acne & Mature Skin Breakouts? Here’s Why.

Hormonal Acne & Mature Skin Breakouts? Here’s Why.

Both men and women are consistently asking: “Where am I going wrong?” so I decided to shed some light on the acne-creating cycle we can all get caught up in.

Once you understand what’s causing your breakouts, you can start changing your habits, and clear up your skin.

If you’re looking for a Hormonal Acne solution – we’ve created the Atopis Radiant Skin Bundle – our 4 products work in perfect synergy to give you a clear and hormonally balanced complexion.

First, What Causes Acne?

Short on time? Here’s a 30-second intro video on What Causes Acne.

 

We’ve done a whole blog post on What Causes Acne – but for now, it’s important to remember there are 3 main causes of Acne:

1. Hormones

One of the biggest culprits of acne is fluctuations in your hormones (which is what we’ll be talking about today).

Across a variety of ages, hormones and hormonal imbalances can lead to detrimental effects on our skin. Read more about how your acne can vary as you age here.

For women, acne usually appears in the later stages of the menstrual cycle, so a week before or even during your period.

It can also appear after starting a new form of birth control, hormone replacement therapy through menopause, or as a result of fluctuating hormones and conditions such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

Androgens (male sex hormones) can fluctuate in level when compounded with stress, fatigue and lack of skin care.

Androgens are the worst perpetrators for causing bad skin because they stimulate the growth of the sebaceous glands and increase sebum levels, making skin oily and causing severe congestion (known as hyperkeratinization).

This condition means dead skin cells don’t slough off naturally and instead clog the skin’s pores.

Cue the entry of bacteria and acne appears as the star of the show.

2. Lifestyle

Though less of a factor than genetics and hormones, your lifestyle can certainly be reflected in your skin.

Poor cleansing (or over cleansing), dehydration, stress, smoking, poor diet and abrasive product use can all be detrimental to your skin.

3. Genetic Makeup

Studies suggest that you’re more likely to struggle with breakouts if your direct relatives have suffered from acne.

Skin types are passed down through your genes and play a key part in how your skin responds to your hormones and how well it deals with sebum (oil), bacteria, anti-inflammatory properties and the regeneration of skin cells.

4 Stages of Hormonal Acne Development:

1. Hormonal Changes

When increases in testosterone or estrogen occur, this increases the production of sebum (oily or waxy matter that lubricates and waterproofs the skin and hair) at the base of the hair follicle.

Over-cleaning the skin, over-exfoliation, or use of astringent cleansers can also lead to the sebum gland overproducing sebum as these actions send the wrong message to the skin that its over dry. 

Unlike teenage skin, where cells are being actively renewed causing the greasy appearance due to the increased sebum, with dry, mature skin, the sebum gland produces too much sebum to compensate for the skin’s dryness.

2. Blockage

Too much sebum results in the hair follicle becoming blocked (clogged pores).

Excessive cleaning of the blocked pores then causes the sebum gland to produce more sebum and the pores block again.

This means gentle cleaning is critical.

3. Over-cleaning

Over-cleaned skin and pores blocked with sebum unbalance your skin’s microflora (your unique mix of good and bad bacteria) as the bad bacteria is fed by the sebum.

This results in what is effectively skin infection.

4. Immune system reaction

The immune system then reacts to the bacteria imbalance and tries to counter the bad bacteria by turning on defense pathways, which can result in an allergenic response on the skin’s surface and pimples appear.

If infection worsens, then a full-blown immune system response occurs and the skin becomes inflamed, hair follicles are blocked, the site contains pus and the sebum gland produces even more sebum creating a severe outbreak.

 

Why Antibiotics Don’t Work for Hormonal Acne Long Term:

Some of you might have been prescribed antibiotics to kill the acne-creating bacteria, but this also kills the good bacteria, leaving the acne sufferer with no defense against the next bacterial attack.

On top of this, the use of alcohol-based astringents open the pores, clear the blockage but leave the skin dry and inflame pores.

This can take you frustratingly back to step one of the acne cycle.

How To Naturally And Effectively Restore Menopausal Skin

How To Naturally And Effectively Restore Menopausal Skin

One moment you’re enjoying a healthy and youthful complexion, the next minute, you’re breaking out in all manner of rashes, hormonal acne, dry patches, and skin coloring unevenness – distressing, to say the least.

Are you starting to notice the signs of aging? Our Atopis Anti-Aging Skin Cream has been developed to hydrate, reduce wrinkles and restore skin using 100% natural ingredients. 

How To Balance Menopausal Skin

“You don’t know what you’ve got ’till it’s gone” rings particularly true when it comes to mature or menopausal skin. 

But it doesn’t have to be like this. If there’s a time when a little TLC is needed, it’s now.

You can’t turn back the clock on your skin’s health – however, you can take care of the present, and start treating your skin with the utmost care from now on.

Learn How To Combat Aging Skin in this video below: 

Nourish your skin with natural products

Menopause causes many changes to your skin, meaning your current skincare routine may no longer meet its changing needs.

Most standard moisturizers are plain water-based and packed with tonnes of fillers, parabens, and alcoholic substances, which dry your sensitive maturing skin even further. This damages it and strips it of its unique microflora. Our article on Always Reading The Label investigates what a majority of beauty and skincare products contain, and what they do to your skin. 

By making the switch to high-quality, all-natural products, these products will carry out the much-needed intricate repairs to your skin.

This includes; regenerating and reprogramming the epidermis at the cell, as well as at surface level, to give you the best skin possible for your stage of life. 

However, keep in mind that all skincare products are not created equal. As with any scientific breakthrough, there are an increasing number of companies that claim that their products contain ‘all natural’ ingredients. 

It’s important to remember that evidence of effectiveness and non-toxicity is very important before you part with your money and put them on your precious skin.

Think of how you’d treat a baby’s skin and what ingredients you would and wouldn’t use on it – that’s how you should treat your own skin.  

The Science Of Maturing Skin: The Plant Phenomenon

From birth, our cells are programmed to die and be replaced – it’s how we grow.

But, once we hit menopause, the replacement of cells slows down, and the texture and quality of skin is no longer that of a younger person.

In the plant world, the phenomenon of programmed cell death is called Apoptosis. In my research, I discovered that, not only was the process in plants reversible, but it could also be manipulated and used in skincare for humans, particularly for the needs of menopausal skin conditions.

In my extensive study of New Zealand and Australia’s indigenous plants, I’ve identified and isolated four main natural substances that can be extracted to work together in synergy to reprogramme and repair human skin.

These substances can help repair skin that’s suffering from the effects of menopause, as well as other conditions such as acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema.

Working from within

First and foremost, we use unpasteurised coconut water – a plant’s equivalent of colostrum (milk produced by mammals during birth), with its rich combination of vitamins and minerals.

Then, we add peptides from biotic reactions of bacteria and insect components in New Zealand native plants, bound with lipids from coconut oil to form the patented Peptilipids™. These have the unique ability to penetrate skin-cell plasma membranes and work from within.

Then, there’s honeydew – a bioactive anti-microbial from beech trees in the Southern Alps of New Zealand – with similar properties to Manuka honey – created by the tree’s natural efforts to defend itself against microbial attack.

Next, bee pollen, which is gently handled using enzymes to destroy all allergens.

Finally, a special combination of selected essential oils: coconut oil, with its Myristic acid to modulate the immune system, protect and heal, and Myracetin for its anti-inflammatory properties, plus kiwifruit seed oil, canola, avocado oil, macadamia nut oil, sweet almond oil, safflower oil, camellia seed oil and jojoba seed oil.

Once extracted, these elements are all fused together to form the patented Myriphytase™ extract, incorporated in the Atopis™ skincare range, safe for everyday use, offering a unique solution to the trials and tribulations of menopausal skin conditions.

Key Ingredients

 

How We Can Help Restore Your Aging Skin 100% Naturally

Our Atopis Anti-Aging Cream utilizes these indigenous plant and essential oil extracts as ingredients to formulate a cream that naturally revitalizes your aging skin, restoring your healthy and youthful glow. 

The natural ingredients in our product work together to: 

1. Intensely hydrate – peptides, lipids, and antioxidants work at the cellular level to hydrate skin.

2. Repair skin – reduces redness from sun damage on face and decolletage and fades age spots, evening skin tone.

What Causes Breakouts?

What Causes Breakouts?

What Causes Breakouts?

Breakouts can be annoying, painful and damaging to our self-esteem. Most of us have had the pleasure of experiencing them at some point in our lives, but for those of us who struggle with prolonged bouts of acne, the problem can be even more frustrating.

It’s important to understand what type of break outs you’re experiencing and what’s causing them, so you can find the most suitable and effective treatments. We’ve explored the key causes and triggers below so you can begin your journey to healthy, clear skin.

Causes and Triggers

Genetic Makeup

Studies suggest that you’re more likely to struggle with breakouts if your direct relatives have suffered from acne. Skin types are passed down through your genes and play a key part in how your skin responds to your hormones and how well it deals with sebum (oil), bacteria, anti-inflammatory properties and the re-generation of skin cells.

Lifestyle

Though less of a factor than genetics and hormones, your lifestyle can certainly be reflected in your skin. Poor cleansing (or over cleansing), dehydration, stress, smoking, poor diet and abrasive product use can all be detrimental to your skin.

Types of acne

Some spots can be more troublesome or obvious than others, most appearing on our face while some appearing all over our body. It’s important to identify your acne type so that you can ensure you’re not mistaking it for other potential skin conditions.

We’ve put together a list of common offenders below:

  • Blackheads – Small dark spots
  • Cystic Acne – Usually painful, larger pus-filled spots.
  • Nodules – Hard and under the surface of your skin.
  • Whitehead – Small white raised bumps.
  • Pustules – On the surface red pimples with pus.
  • Papules – Pink, smaller bumps on top of the skins surface.
  • Body Breakouts – Any of the above descriptions but outside of the facial area, with
    typical places including back, neck, chest and shoulders.

Preventative Measures

It’s important for people to understand that acne is a skin disease, and it needs to be treated as one. Our skin is an effective barrier against dirt, infection and pathogens, which is designed to beat skin disease at its own game. We’re born with our own unique skin microflora of bacteria that builds our immunity and keeps skin healthy.

Just like our gut microflora, the good bacteria and matter that make up our skin microflora, known collectively as your microbiome, needs to be preserved.

There are many lifestyle changes that can be made to improve your skin’s health and enhance its ability to self-heal.

These include:

  • Keeping your gut balance and microflora healthy through fermented foods and Kefir which helps replenish beneficial bacteria. These naturally combat the inflammatory effects of antibiotics, sugar, alcohol and processed foods which reduce your immunity.
  • Stimulating your lymph system through exercise, drinking more water and avoiding excessive caffeine and alcohol consumption.
  • Experimenting with cutting dairy out of your diet and try to incorporate Evening Primrose Oil, zinc and vitamin B6.
  • Limiting stress and getting more sleep.
  • Quitting smoking – this will enhance your skins ability to heal.
  • Avoiding touching your face.
  • Keeping your hair out of your face to avoid it from touching your face.
  • Using water based, nonalcoholic cosmetics.
  • Taking off your make-up every night and using a gentle, natural cleanser and moisturizer. Stay clear from abrasive, artificial products that could aggravate your skin.

How Atopis Can help

Some of you may be all too familiar with the hopeless feeling of having tried everything and failing to see any improvements to your skin. Try to remain patient through this process, your skin requires around 8 weeks to fully respond to new treatments or products.

When choosing your skin care products, we highly recommend sticking to natural and non-abrasive products such as our all Natural Acne Cream. Based on award-winning international research and successful clinical trials, Dr Iona Weir has formulated safe, natural products to help unlock skin’s own immunity and assist self-repair.

Atopis Acne Prone Skin Cream helps treat acne by limiting overstimulation and moderates the hormone receptors of the skin’s sebaceous glands. It rebuilds your skin through moisturising, controlling sebum levels and preventing that old villain, hyperkeratinisation.

Meanwhile, the probiotic peptides in Atopis, work to restore your skin’s friendly bacteria microbiome, just like probiotics in the gut.
