November is a big time in the apple harvesting calendar, with many varieties ready to pick and enjoy in crumbles, pies and other delights, but did you know that apples contain enzymes which are really good for your skin? Several of the products we sell contain some element of apple power, so we’ve put together a handy list for you to look through so you can see which products to choose when you shop for the ‘apple’ of your eye!
This moisturiser from Dermalogica may seem like a generic body lotion that you just slather all over yourself, but it actually contains a whole load of essential plant oils and hydroxy acids, from apples and sugar cane, which resurface your skin, leaving it smoother and more supple. Green tea, lavender, tea tree and chamomile oils soothe and soften the skin with their anti-inflammatory properties, while essential oils of sandalwood, orange, clary sage, patchouli and rosemary help to hydrate the skin and keep the skin moisturised for longer.
Wish so many cleansers it feels as though there’s a constant battle between being powerful enough to really clean away impurities but not being so powerful that it irritates your skin. This gentle foaming facial wash from Elemis has been formulated with that in mind and harnesses apple amino acid which helps produce the foamy texture and protects the skin’s moisture barrier while keeping your skin perfectly clean.
These handy little pouches give a perfectly measured daily dose of resurfacing cream which uses botanical skin brighteners and hydroxy acids from apples to totally transform your complexion. Unlike other similar products, they prevent any redness or irritation while helping to even skin tone and balance pigmentation.
Micellar water is probably one of the trendiest products on the market right now, with almost every beauty brand offering their own version, and Elemis is no exception. Hydroxy acids from apples combines with organic English rose water and soothing anti-oxidant rich Chamomile, so that skin is gently cleansed, whilst the natural moisture barrier is maintained. Regular use with leave your skin looking radiant and refreshed.
Although it’s called a ‘lip’ treatment on the tube, this is actually a perioral treatment meaning that it can be used to combat fine lines and crows feet around the whole mouth and under-nose area. In addition to hyaluronic acid, Nightly Lip Treatment uses this moisturising saccharide complex extracted from dried apples to help enhance skin hydration and smooth lips. Smoothing this area will help the whole face to appear more youthful.
