Every year my family and I excitedly make the trip to a nearby orchard to pick our own apples. The smell of the crisp fall air and the anticipation of the sight of the strong army of trees full of brightly colored gems evoke such a feeling of hope and possibility I’m beside myself. I can’t wait to pull out my boots and chunky sweaters! As we cruise along the highway enjoying the sweeping sea of oranges and reds, I grin into the sunlight.
Then I catch a reflection of myself in the rearview mirror and wonder why I look like I’ve been hit in the face with a sack of flour.
Apples contain natural enzymes, antioxidants and nutrients that promote fresh glowing skin. These precious pommes can truly brighten your skin and give you that fresh face you need to tackle the impending holiday season (or even laundry or Monday).
