Different Skin Types, Conditions & How To Manage Your Skin

Dry Itchy Skin

Dry Skin

There are many different types of dry itchy skin conditions, but the most common is atopic dermatitis – the most common form of eczema. The first step towards effectively managing your skin condition is identifying what specific condition you are dealing with. Learn more about the seven types of eczema.

It’s also important to have a solid understanding of the root cause of your skin condition and what may be triggering flare ups. Learn more about the causes, triggers, and treatment options of eczema skin.

Essentially, treating eczema is about protecting the damaged skin barrier to stop the skin reacting to allergens.

Repair dry, itchy skin with an all-natural product that calms inflammation, restores the skin’s microflora, and protects the skin barrier.

Skin needs:

  • Itch relief
  • Hydration

Acne Prone Skin

 

Acne

When choosing products to help combat acne, it’s important to avoid abrasive products that strip the skin of its natural microflora – the naturally occuring bacteria on your skin.

By stripping your skin of both the good and bad bacteria, the products actually keep you stuck in the acne-creating cycle. Balancing the naturally occurring bacteria on your skin is a huge step to achieving sustainably clear, healthy skin.

Also important is avoiding over-cleansing the skin. Over-cleaning, over-exfoliation, or using cleansers with harsh chemicals can also lead to the sebum gland overproducing sebum. This is because the message sent to the sebum gland is that the skin is too dry, so it ramps up sebum oil production – keeping you stuck in the acne-creation cycle.

Use a gentle, natural cleanser that removes dirt and dead cells without stripping the skin’s natural bacteria. Look for products saying non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, oil-free, won’t clog pores, and suitable for oily skin.

Atopis Thoroughly Gentle Cleanser is designed to gently remove dirt and toxins from the skin, unblocking pores without stripping the skin of its natural oils or microflora. Natural ingredients with antimicrobial properties reduce the bad bacteria, while promoting the good.

Young Adult Acne

For those dealing with acne in their teens and early 20’s, it’s essential to choose a product that regulates the skin’s sebum oil production. The fluctuating hormone levels – particularly androgen – mean that sebum levels increase, making the skin oily. This causes severe congestion as dead skin cells don’t slough off naturally and instead clog the skin’s pores.

Skin needs:

  • Hydration without making the skin oilier
  • Regulation of sebum oil production
  • Balance the skin’s microflora

Atopis product – Acne Prone Skin Cream, Cleanser & Toner



Atopis Acne Prone Skin Cream helps dissolve and regulate skin oils and sebum to support clearer, softer, and smoother skin. For best results, use in conjunction with Atopis Thoroughly Gentle Cleanser and Revitalising Toner. The products have been scientifically formulated to work in synergy to treat the skin.

Suggested routine – cleanse and tone skin, then apply a thin layer on affected areas twice daily.

Adult Acne

With teenage skin, the combination of skin cells being constantly renewed and an increase of sebum oil means that it’s important to use an acne treatment product that regulates sebum production. With dry, mature skin, the sebum gland produces too much sebum to compensate for the skin dryness, resulting in acne. This means that moisturising the skin is part of beating acne for good.

Skin needs:

  • Hydration
  • Regulation of sebum oil production
  • Balance the skin’s microflora

Atopis product – Acne Prone Skin Cream & Radiant Balance

Atopis Acne Prone Skin Cream moisturises without making the skin oily. The potent natural therapy cream has been scientifically formulated to regulate sebum production, meaning you can finally address the cause of acne, and break out of the acne-creating cycle for good!

Suggested routine – cleanse and tone skin, then apply a thin layer of acne cream on affected areas, then Radiant Balance on top morning and night.

Hormonal Breakouts

 

Hormonal Acne

 

If you tend to break out around your time of the month, it’s highly likely your acne is caused by hormonal fluctuations. When hormonal changes occur, sebum oil production increases and can cause breakouts.

 


Skin needs:

  • Balance the skin’s reaction to hormonal fluctuations
  • Regulate sebum oil production
  • Balance microflora

Atopis product – Radiant Balance, Cleanser & Toner

Atopis Radiant Balance soothes and nourishes skin for a soft clear complexion. The all-natural therapy cream balances the skin’s response to hormonal fluctuations to reduce hormonal breakouts.

Suggested routine – gently clean skin with Thoroughly Gentle Cleanser, protect and lock in natural moisture with Revitalising Toner, then moisturise with Radiant Balance.

Acne Scarring

 

Acne Scarring

Acne scars are the result of a pimple forming and causing the pore to become inflamed and blocked. The pore is blocked with excess oils, dead skin and bacteria, and if it stays inflamed in this condition this causes it to swell and eventually tear the follicular wall -breaking the skin.

It is when the skin repairs this damage that it can overcompensate and actually produce too much collagen causing scar tissue.

It’s important to prevent scarring by using products that reduce acne-causing bacteria and inflammation to lessen the pimple becoming more severe. Scarring can still occur, despite attempts to prevent them,, so using a product aimed at minimizing their appearance can speed up the time it takes for them to fade.

Skin needs:

  • Reduce the appearance of acne scars
  • Improve skin texture
  • Nourish and heal

Atopis product – Radiant Balance, Cleanser & Toner

Atopis Radiant Balance has properties that repair the skin which softens scarring, especially acne scarring. Atopis has been clinically shown to improve skin texture.  Using our cleanser and toner in conjunction with Radiant Balance will make the therapy cream more effective, as they are designed to work in synergy to heal and protect the skin.

Suggested routine: cleanse and tone the skin, apply Radiant Balance twice daily.

Rosacea Prone Skin

Rosacea

Rosacea is caused by a malformed protein (cathelicidin) which is responsible for regulating blood flow and inhibiting the growth of bad bacteria on the skin. This means blood vessels expand, causing the intense redness of rosacea skin. Learn more about rosacea causes, symptoms, triggers, and treatment options.

The intense redness can be reduced by using a product that reduces inflammation and restores bacterial balance.

 


Skin needs:

  • Reduce redness
  • Improve skin texture
  • Reduce the skin’s overreactions to environmental triggers
  • Balance the skin’s microflora

Atopis products – Acne Prone Skin Cream, Radiant Balance


Our acne cream treats the underlying symptoms of the inflammation, redness and bacterial imbalance. Having dealt with rosacea herself, Dr Iona Weir developed Radiant Balance to help other women break out of the rosacea cycle. The therapy cream mimics the normal functioning cathelicidin protein to treat the symptoms of rosacea. Read more

Suggested routine – apply Acne Prone Skin Cream as a serum to problem areas, and Radiant Balance as a moisturiser over top. Note Radiant Balance is not suitable for males, due to the female hormone balancing properties of the cream.

Mature skin

Aging Skin Caring for mature skin is a case of finding a product that nourishes your skin, restores collagen production, and provides intense hydration.

Many moisturisers are water-based and packed with tons of fillers, parabens and alcohol, which dry your skin even further. As we age, it’s important to use good quality, all-natural products that nourish your maturing skin and enhance your natural beauty. Read more about caring for mature and menopausal skin.

 

Dry, Dull Mature Skin

As we age, our hormone levels change. This results in a decrease of collagen production – the protein that keeps skin firm and plump. Often you’ll hear people say that they’ve lost their youthful glow – they’re just not using a product that boosts collagen production!

Skin needs:

  • Intense hydration
  • Restores collagen production
  • Promotes cell renewal
  • Protects from environmental damage


Atopis product – Anti-Aging Cream
Anti-Aging Skin Cream

Stimulates cell renewal, promotes skin repair and restores collagen, helping to bring back your radiant, youthful glow!

Skin needs:

  • Intense hydration without clogging pores

  • Cell renewal
  • Protection from environmental damage

Atopis product – Cleanser & Toner, Radiant Balance, Anti-Aging Cream
