Yoga that can change your skin

If you’re one of those people who have always wanted to practice yoga but never seem to get around doing it, we believe this post will take you the extra mile.

Even if it sounds strange, practizing yoga can help you avoid breakoutsreduce wrinkles, and let out a natural glow

A challenging yoga session will free your skin of toxins, opening your pores and detoxifying your skin. When calming down, your blood flow will improve, nourishing your organs, including the skin.

Get started with facial yoga

If you want to experience the magic in real life, here’s a lifting facial yoga routine for you. 

Start by making an O shape with your mouth, where both your lips cover your teeth. 

Then, raise the corners of your mouth and smile using your cheek muscles. After this, close your eyes and roll them up to the ceiling.

With your eyes still pointing up, create a small O shape with your mouth, and smile. 

Slowly tilt your head back as you tighten your body and lift your chest. With long, deep breaths, raise your hands up and over your head. Imagine all your facial muscles aiming for the ceiling.

Once you’ve reached this position, hold tight for thirty seconds. Lower your hands and head with an exhale. Do this twice a day to relax and help your skin.

Yoga for the body

If you want to go further and exercise your whole body, here are some yoga asanas you should try: Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand), Padmasana (Lotus Pose), Halasana (Plow Pose), Ustrasana (Camel Pose), and Shavasana (Corpse Pose). Research the correct way to do them and practice safe and healthy exercise.

Yoga can be beneficial for both your skin and your muscles. It reduces cortisol levels, increases flexibility, and helps reduce wrinkles. You have nothing to lose with this relaxing exercise, also suitable for all levels!

Your hands matter: a hand skincare routine

Our hands are one of the body parts that we use the most. They should be given major importance when doing our skincare routine but are often overlooked.

The skin on the back of the hands is thinner than on the face, making it easier for ageing signs to show prematurely. They are often in use, washed frequently, and being exposed to the sun and other damaging agents daily.

A treat for your hands

There are a few things you can change in your daily life that will actively help keep your hands healthy. A specialized routine for your hands doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate, as you can add them to your existing routine with ease.

A good start is to wash them every morning with the same cleaner your use in your face. If you use an anti-ageing serum, make sure to apply a few drops to the back of your hands as well.

Hydration is fundamental

Moisture is really important, at APoEM we use the Restore Hand Cream, light cream with special ingredients to protect and renew your skin.

As usual, don’t forget to protect your skin from the sun, even if it doesn’t look like you will be exposed. Wear sunscreen and cover when necessary.

Dry skin no more!

Dry skin is one of the most delicate skin types out there. Having dry skin means taking extra care of your face and body, looking for specific products that won’t irritate your skin, and instead will make it feel and look better.

Today we want to make your life a little easier by giving you a great skincare routine to treat and improve your dry skin. Rely on our Replenish family of products, crafted with love for skin types from normal to dry with the extra need for nutrition.

Start by cleansing

On the subject of dry skin and cleansers, less is more. Keep your face clean with a soap-free cleanser made with mild ingredients. The Replenish Cleansing Balm checks these boxes and adds even more! It removes all impurities while moisturizing and protecting your skin. 

Speed up the process with a mask

Face masks are known for their almost instant results, giving your skin a lot of nutrients and concentrated ingredients that target your problems right away.

We recommend the Replenish Glow Mask to recharge your skin and recover its luminosity. Add a thin layer on your face and don’t remove it, to enjoy all of its nutrients.

Pay attention to detail

Your eye contour area is the most delicate part of your face. Take care of it with the Replenish Eye Cream. It ensures the best protection for the most demanding skin types while nourishing and purifying your skin. 

All for the body

Take care of your body once your face is done. The Replenish Body Cream is an intensive, fresh, and nourishing body cream of fast absorption. Follow it with the Replenish Body Oil, which refines, nourishes and enhances the skin like a warm caress.

With love and the right products, it gets a lot easier to enjoy your skin and say goodbye to the dryness. Let yourself go with our safe and natural products while the ingredients do all the work for you!

Workout skincare: pre & post-exercise

Working out can be highly beneficial for your physical and mental health, but if you don’t have a workout skincare routine and forget to take care of your skin before and after exercising, you might end up damaging it. Learn what to do pre & post-workout:

Prepare your skin

-Cleanse. It’s important to you wash your face before working out in order to let the skin breathe. The Detox Face Wash is a great option!
-Moisturise. Choose a lightweight moisturizer to help your skin retain water and prevent dehydration while exercising.
-Protect. Add sunscreen if you’re going outdoors. Remember to re-apply if you stay outside for too long or if your skin gets wet. If there will be a lot of sun exposure, wearing a hat is also a good idea.

Recover from the workout

-Shower. Your workout skincare routine also includes your body, warm water can help detoxify your skin, adding a moisturizing soap works best. It’s important to change your clothes to avoid breakouts.
-Tone and moisturize. Help seal in moisture and boost your skin’s resistance by moisturizing after your shower.
-Weekly facial. Cleanse and moisturize with a facial treatment or unclog your pores with specific products, like the Detox Face Scrub.

No matter the kind of workout you practice, even if it’s once a week or every day, it is important to keep your skin in mind. Exercising can be very beneficial for your skin if done right, it can help you detox, release toxins, and get your blood flowing in a healthy way!

Autumn skincare: prepare your routine for fall

The weather is changing and with Autumn comes warmer clothes and cooler days. Update your skincare routine and protect your skin from the cold weather.

What should I change for Autumn?

Dry and cold winds are on their way, and with them cracked cuticles, parched lips, and dry skin. Clogged pore and blotchy skin can be an issue for some, as a result of months of thick sunscreen and bronzers.

During this season it is important to go back to basics. You’ll need a hydrating cleanser, gentle exfoliation, serums, and a rich moisturizer.

Create your perfect Fall routine.

As always, it is important to start with a creamy cleanser that doesn’t foam up. Don’t strip your skin of its natural oils while cleansing, and if you use a daily toner, you should reduce its frequency.

Get rid of patchy transitional skin with a gentle exfoliator, like the Detox Face Scrub.

Choose an ultra-moisturizing serum to refresh and awaken your skin. We recommend the Restore Serum, perfect for dehydrated skin.

Avoid sensitivity and dryness with a nourishing and gentle moisturizer. The Calm Face Moisturizer is great for the most delicate skin types, or skin exposed to extreme weather conditions.

A whole-body routine.

While your face is one of the most important areas, your body must also be taken into account. Wear sunscreen even if the day is cloudy, it’s always important to stay protected from UV rays.

Make sure to hydrate and protect all your skin. Your hands are always exposed and in use, give them special treatment with our Restore Hand Cream.

Apply these simple changes to your daily skincare routine and be prepared for whatever the winter brings!

Kids & Skincare: the best routine for children

Skin is the largest organ of the human body, and it’s important to take care of it even from a young age. As a kid, the skin is more resilient, but it is the perfect time to teach good skincare habits.

When to start?

Even when they are just babies, it is important to pay attention to the products you use. It is true that a baby or even a young kid doesn’t need a bath every single day, but it is often the case as they tend to get messy. Use bathing products that are gentle and pure, to take care of their natural oils and avoid drying out their skin.

The Happy hair & body wash is a gentle shower gel made from organic coconut and olive oil. It cleanses the hair and skin while respecting the hydro-lipid barrier.

Using the right products you can even take advantage of the bath time to reinforce the natural skin defenses. The Sweet cleansing oil provides nutrition and comfort.

After a well-deserved bath, you can use the Candid face & body oil with a replenishing and soothing massage. It protects and nourishes the skin with the most gentle natural oils.

For the whole family

These products are perfect for all ages, as they are suitable for the most delicate and sensitive skin. Try to make the skincare routine an enjoyable experience, turning it into a game or a relaxing moment.

Teaching your kids good skincare habits will help them in the future. Not only it will keep them healthy at the moment, but it will also give them the opportunity to grow with beautiful and taken-care-of skin.

How to find your skin type.

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.

Get perfect skin for the holidays
