An apple a day keeps the dermatologist away

Pumpkin pie, pecan pie and don't forget the apple pie are all staples of the holiday season dinner table. But did you know you can use apples to tighten your skin? So don't throw those leftover apples away!!

Apples are natural skin tighteners. They are also a good conditioner and toner because they have vitamin C, which has been shown to protect and repair skin cells, without the drying effect of citrus fruits such as lemon and grapefruit.

For a tightening and blemish reducing treatment, try an apple facial:

  • Pulp from 1 ripened apple
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey
  • Mash the pulp into a fine paste
  • Add honey and mix
  • Apply evenly to face, avoid your eye area
  • Let the mask sit for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water
