The human body is an amazing machine, it is perfectly able to cleanse and purify itself on its own. Because of this, detoxing isn’t always as necessary as it might be advertised. However, a detox is good once in a while, as it allows the skin to replenish needed vitamins and minerals, giving you a more youthful appearance.
You should want to start a detox if you need a break from the day-to-day or if you want to boost your overall health. It is a good way to escape your normal routine and to make some changes in your life, as detoxing can be helpful if you want to kick off positive a lifestyle.
Not everyone can stick to those strict diets or get a spa treatment. You should choose a program that helps you cleanse, balance and heal at your own pase.
Treatments and products with mud or clay help with detoxifying, they help balance the skin’s pH and eliminate toxins. Seaweed, algae and sea salt are also great, they help draw impurities out and have balancing and healing properties.
A much simpler way to “detox” your skin from harmful ingredients and chemicals is to go for natural and safe products, like the ones we have at APoEM. All of our products are vegan & cruelty-free certified, as well as natural and free of grey substances or toxins.
It’s never too late to make changes your life, choose the healthy path. If you have any questions, don’t doubt sending us an email or messaging us through or social media.
At APoEM we always try to be the most environmental-friendly we can be. To do this, among other things, we choose to package our products in glass bottles. However, there are some people that wonder if plastic bottles are better than glass. We’re here to let you know why we use glass.
One of the greatest things about glass is that it’s highly recyclable. Glass is recycled into more glass, infinitely, and never loses its integrity. Plastic bottles, however, need to be recycled into something different, like plastic lumber or carpet.
In terms of plastic, even if the recyclable symbol is always there in every plastic bottle, the reality is that only 2 types of plastics are really recycled, but in very low proportions, compared to the number of bottles used worldwide. Every time plastic is recycled it loses its integrity, some even say that it is downcycled. So in order to make new plastic objects, you need to mix recycled plastic with newly produced plastic. If plastic was recycled more often, however, it could be much more environmental-friendly, but it’s often thrown away and ends up in landfills or oceans.
There’s one thing in which plastic bottles are better than glass, and that is in the carbon footprint created by the transportation but also during the production. It’s undeniable that glass is heavier than plastic, this causes glass bottles’ transportation to require more energy. Equally, glass requires much more energy to be molded than plastic.
However, glass is made from natural ingredients that are widely available and easier to find, so it goes up one point when it comes to production.
All these are the reasons why at APoEM we try to use glass bottles as much as we can. The only cases in which we use plastic bottles is when the products go in the shower or are prone to breaking, to make sure you’re always safe.
Making this change is part of how we help the environment, and you can help us too by supporting this cause and recycling as much as you can.
The first step when it comes to having a skincare routine is understanding your skin and knowing what skin type your face has. Learning about your skin’s specific needs is the way to go when choosing the right products for a healthier, more radiant skin.
Your skin is unique, but it can be classified within four big groups by knowing its characteristics. Determine your skin type at home by following one of these two methods.
Pregnancy is a stage of many hormonal, vascular, and immunological changes, and the skin is one of the most sensible zones on a pregnant person.
There are many conditions you should want to prevent or attenuate when pregnant. Here we’ll discuss the most common ones and give you ways to kiss them goodbye.
December has arrived, and it’s time to make the most out of the last month of 2018. Prep your skin for all the parties ahead and look your best for all the special moments that are to come.
You may think that having oily skin means you can skip the moisturizer after cleansing. Why would you want to make your face look shinier, right? But in reality, you should never underestimate a good moisturizer. Moisturizing your skin is just as important as cleansing, no matter your skin type, both are non-negotiable.
Pregnancy is a really important time in a person’s life. It is the perfect moment to pamper yourself and take care of your body, and therefore your baby.
But can something that you put on your skin affect your system or even your baby? Keep in mind that the skin is an organ, the largest one in fact; it is full of pores and does a great work absorbing what you slather on it. There are medicines and chemicals that work through skin patches and creams, so why we don’t put more thought when applying huge amounts of beauty products is a big mystery.
Beauty is a complex concept, we can’t expect our skin to be in optimal conditions with just one product, just like we can’t keep our body healthy with one meal a day. Often, we try to generalize our routine when we should be paying attention to details in order to take care of our individual needs.
