As autumn takes hold, our skin’s needs change along with seasonal temperatures.
It’s time to perk up those post-summer skin blues and revitalise your lacklustre complexion with a luxury and targeted skincare refresh from Atlantis Skincare.
Atlantis Skincare was created by Latvian born founder Zane Piese. A journey which began in 2015, inspired by a personal and lifelong affinity with nature. After a fruitless search for plant-based skincare, that actually works, Zane who describes herself as an entrepreneur, creative, mixologist and visionary decided to develop her own, and Atlantis Skincare was born. A range of effective, results-driven plant-based skincare, backed by science.
Why is a plant-based approach to skincare preferred?
Our skin is the largest organ of our body and tasked with elimination. Whilst it may be subjective, some of the toxins in self-care products such as parabens and heavy metals can be absorbed into our bloodstream through the skin. Moreover, potentially harmful ingredients can also enter our body via the mouth when applying skincare. These toxins must then be broken down, processed and removed by our liver – why not give it one less job to do?
To say I’m becoming somewhat of a skincare cynic may be a bit strong, however, my skincare habits have most certainly evolved across the years. I’ve become much more conscious of ingredients, their role within a product and how certain chemicals in skincare can actually have a negative impact, as opposed to a positive effect on our skin.
“While our ancestors understood the power of nature’s bounty, this know-how had been lost somewhere along the way, much like Atlantis itself” – Zane.
Atlantis Glowing Skin Day Cream with Hyaluronic Acid 50ml
Boxed and sealed for freshness, Atlantis Skincare Glowing Skin Day Cream is jam-packed with nutrient-rich ingredients, it’s literally everything your skin needs in a lightweight, mildly scented formula. Application is smooth and light, yet creamy, with an almost serum-like consistency enabling you to really work it into the skin before being fully absorbed. Remember to exfoliate your skin at least once a week to promote better products absorption.
We recognise that parched skin will do nothing for our complexion, but what’s the solution? Hyaluronic acid, of course. This mighty ingredient can hold up to one-thousand times its weight in water, unrivalled at attracting and binding moisture to our skin cells.
Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in our skin, but, year on year as we age, supplies deplete stripping us of the plumptious, youthful skin tone we once took for granted.
Whilst Atlantis Skincare Glowing Skin Day Cream is infused with youth-boosting hyaluronic acid, it doesn’t, however, contain water – its waterless skincare, but, what does this mean? You’ll notice that a large majority of skincare brands list water as the main ingredient, this is to facilitate the emulsification of certain ingredients, in other words – it allows ingredients that would ordinarily repel each other to mix, (such as oil and water) Often, these ingredients i.e. synthetic preservatives, phthalates, heavy metals and parabens are potentially harmful to not only our skin, but our body too. By leaving out water, harmful ingredients can be left out too. It’s that simple – but of course, there is a science behind it.
Nature has so much to offer, with powerful natural ingredients a-plenty
This luxurious day cream is formulated to brighten the complexion and bring a renewed glow to the skin. Zane and her team of experts have carefully chosen natures best vegan-friendly ingredients including sweet almond and tomato seed oils to help defy the signs of skin ageing for a little longer.
What result can we expect to find from Atlantis Glowing Skin Day Cream?
Hydration was at the top of my list and I wanted to see my skin smoothed, plumped and a visible reduction of fine lines. I’m realistic, and whilst I realise the miracle, youth renewing cream doesn’t exist, Glowing Skin Day Cream held its own. Lasting well over the four-week period in which I’ve been trying it, I certainly haven’t been disappointed in any way.
*Overall, subtle changes have been noticeable, I found increased hydration and some minimal plumping of fine lines, particularly around the mouth area where repetitive movement lines begin to form.
Atlantis Eye Cream with Hyaluronic acid 15ml
The delicate skin around the eye area is ten times thinner than the rest of your face and requires a much gentler approach. Atlantis Skincare Eye Cream is a mild, lightweight plant-powered formula created to target and reduce puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area.
Developed in the Atlantis Skincare lab, a unique, award-winning concoction of sustainably-sourced 100% natural ingredients are blended to bring you an effective eye cream, suited to even the most sensitive of skins. Target multiple skin concerns around the eye area with enriching shea butter, rosehip oil (renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties), and collagen-boosting oat kernel. Aloe vera leaf juice, extracts of mango seed butter and calendula oil work to soothe, heal and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid binds moisture to plump and smooth the eye area.
Expected result from using Atlantis Skincare Eye Cream
Using a new eye cream always brings with it some trepidation – will it feel heavy? will I wake with irritated, puffy eyes? I’m pleased to say, Atlantis Eye cream performed well. I used it over the entire eye area (including the mobile lid) both morning and night without any unwanted issues arising. It absorbs well into the skin and the tiniest amount is all that’s required. It leaves skin feeling supple for some time after use and you’re sure to love the wonderful, all-natural scent yielded from a carefully chosen selection of botanicals.
Apply gently with the ring finger, and avoid dragging the delicate skin – treat it carefully. Thankfully, those telltale signs such as fine lines, fatigue and/or puffiness can all be tackled with Atlantis Eye Cream.
Atlantis skincare is by no means cheap and cheerful skincare, it’s science-led which of course comes at a price. That said, if you value the future of your skin, it’s surely worth the investment.
Using an effective plant-based skincare routine morning and evening, post-cleanse maintains a healthy and hydrated complexion. Foster an honest, uncomplicated approach to keep a good balance for both your face body and overall health.
Produced and hand-made in small batches Atlantis Skincare follows a “seed to skin, farm to face” philosophy straight from its own UK-based laboratory to fuse science with nature.
