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 can’t expect to get flawless skin in one day, but there are many things you can do to speed up the process and make that natural glow come out. In order to achieve this, we must start with the basics!

First things first

Cleansing is one of the most important steps, so it is vital to invest in a good product. Always choose the cleanser that fits your skin the most, but in general, you could go for a gentle cleanser, without artificial fragrances or grey substances (those ingredients that can be harmful to the skin). This way, your skin won’t be sensitized and you’ll stay free of all toxins and impurities.
When it comes to moisturizing, don’t give it any less importance. Moisturizer is a must, even for oily skin (read a specialized post about it here), it will help you heal and protect the skin. Again, find the product that’s best for you by getting to know your skin type and its needs.
At APoEM we have great options for all skin types, even the most delicate. Look for cleansers and moisturizers to find your perfect fit. As always, our products are natural and free of any damaging agent and allergens.

Make it special

Once the basics are covered, you can get creative and have fun! We’re talking about exfoliators and face masks. These are things that you don’t usually add to your daily routine because they have a stronger effect, but it can usually be done once a week or maybe more, depending on your skin type.
Exfoliators are a tricky pick because there are many out there that can be too harsh and cause micro-cuts to the skin. We recommend Metamorphose by Sepai. Exfoliating will give you an instant boost as it is cell-renewing and pore-minimizing.
On to the most exciting part for most of us, face mask! These are vital before any important occasion as you can feel the results right after taking it off, plus you get to feel pampered. At APoEM we have a revitalizing mask perfect for dry skin, the Replenish Glow Mask. But if you’re looking for other choices, head over to Sepai and find your new soulmate, and make sure to check out the newest launch, Urban Identity.
We recommend that if you’re going to try any new products before a special event, you do so at least two weeks in advance to avoid any reaction to the ingredients.
Have fun with your skincare routine and enjoy the holidays however you choose to celebrate them!
