Earth Science Clarifying Herbal Astringent

It’s fall which means… apple picking, apple cider, apple pie, apple everything! We have just one more to add to the list this year, and that’s apple in skincare.

This delicious and healthy fruit is surprisingly just as delectable to put on your face as it is to eat! Apples are known to be packed with antioxidants, making them super nutritious, but did you know that these antioxidants have a ton of benefits for your skin like helping fight toxins and neutralizing free radicals? By fighting free radicals from the environment, it can actually help promote younger-looking skin. Try our Cellagen Renewal Serum, which blends apple extract and hyaluronic acid for a fresher, youthful glow!

Apple in the form of apple cider vinegar has natural astringent properties, which makes it a terrific ingredient to help cleanse your skin. It’s a key ingredient in our Clarifying Herbal Astringent which can help tighten pores, remove the last traces of cleanser and makeup, and decrease sebum flow to dry out oily skin. Apple cider vinegar has even been known to assist the treatment of acne.

But, our all-time favorite benefit of apple extract this time of year is that it moisturizes and helps soften skin. As the weather gets colder, our skin gets drier, and could use some added hydration! Our Apricot Night Cream was specifically formulated for extra dry skin using a soothing blend of plant-based moisturizers like apple extract, sweet almond oil and apricot kernel oil. Need a moisturizing boost for tired eyes? Try our Azulene Eye Cream that contains apple extract, macadamia and jojoba oil.

Get the most out of your favorite fall ingredient, and feed your skin with some apple love this season!
