Anti-Aging

Green apple, in particular, is great for keeping wrinkles at bay. When combines with Vitamin E and Vitamin A it prevents aging by rebuilding and regenerating the skin structure, keeping it elastic and youthful.

Acne-Busting

Apples have natural astringent properties that can help clear pores of acne-causing oils. When paired with Vitamin C, it will help clear up the appearance of acne and rejuvenate the look of skin texture.

Lightening & Brightening

When nothing is sloughing away dead skin cells, take advantage of apple’s natural alpha-hydroxy acids that help exfoliate skin and break up the proteins that hold cells together. Complexion will be brighter and smoother.

Toning

Apple extract naturally balances the skin’s pH levels, which restricts the overproduction of its own oils to tighten and tone.The amazing apple is also known to help soothe sunburn, decrease dark circles and puffy eyes and even provide UVB sun protection particles to the skin.

Here are some fresh picked apple-infused organic skincare products to try this Fall!
