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!

Although tight, flakey, and dull are never words we want to use to describe our skin, they can often be effects of seasonal changes and the cooler weather. Celebrate the fall season with a few tips for maintaining a glowing complexion through the winter months.

Hydrate:
Staying hydrated both inside and out is key to keeping skin looking its best. Drinking plenty of water can help maintain skin’s moisture from the inside, while using a hydrating serum like our Maximum Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum protects, hydrates, and soothes skin.

Exfoliate:
Stimulating the growth of new skin cells is important for a healthy complexion. Gently exfoliating to remove the outermost layer can reveal glowing skin. Choosing an exfoliator that does not dry skin out, like our Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub, can give you a luminous complexion without over-cleansing already parched winter skin. Using our Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub made with crushed walnut shells rather than harmful micro-beads, is not only better for you, but also better for our planet.

Protect:
Your skin will thank you for creating a healthy barrier against the elements. A moisturizer with sun defense like our SPF 30 Protective Day Cream or our Almond-Aloe Moisturizer SPF 15+ are perfect for year round protection to fight against premature aging and wrinkling as well as offering protection from UVA/UVB rays.

Detoxify:
A weekly mask can help to polish and purify facial skin to alleviate dullness or flaking. A mild, yet effective mask takes only a few minutes for instantaneous results. Try our Papaya-Glycolic Radiant Skin Masque for a three-in-one treatment that gently loosens dull skin cells, clears pores, and polishes away impurities. With no artificial fragrances, colors, mineral oil, gluten, or parabens, renewed skin is a treatment away.

Combine:
Since the drying effect of the cold months leaves skin parched, don’t be afraid to add extra moisture and care by layering products. Adding a serum, like our Cellagen Renewal Serum or our Maximum Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum, underneath a daily moisturizer can boost moisture and instantly improve skin’s tone and texture.

Giving skin extra care and pampering during the winter months can mean the difference between a dull, dry complexion and a healthy, glowing complexion.
