Happy Fall to you dear reader!
We are discussing healthy and delicious fall treats that help maintain skin radiance... Food certainly takes center stage this time of year, but if you’re looking to curb your calories but still want to indulge your senses (and your skin), here are my Fall and Holiday beauty product picks!
I loveeeeee Pumpkin-anything...
More than a culinary treat, pumpkin contains good-for-your skin antioxidants and exfoliating enzymes that protect skin from damage, smooth rough texture and keep pores clear. We recommend a DIY fresh Pumpkin and honey mask that really helps to restore damaged skin, especially with the Vitamin E found in Honey, your skin will look fabulous for the holidays!
What you'll need: 1-2oz of freshly blended pumpkin and 2 teaspoons of honey. Mix in a bowl and apply to face and neck. Leave for 12-15 minutes and rinse with luke warm water.

Not just for pancakes or waffles, there’s something about the scent of maple that conjures up images of the leaves changing colors in New England—and this sweet treat is rich in antioxidants as well. If you want the sensory experience without the waistline-expanding calories, try a highly nutrient Maple and oats facial mask at home.
What you'll need: 1-2oz of fresh dry oats, 2 teaspoons of fresh maple, 1 egg (egg white only). Mix and apply to face and neck. Leave fore 12-15 minutes. Rinse throughly with luke warm to cool water.
Cranberries are delicious and healthy, a great source of antioxidants, which is good news for your skin. The antioxidants found in cranberry sauce help keep your skin looking and feeling great, which often becomes a problem this time of year. Have cranberry sauce in moderation.

Yummm, apple cider…
When you reach for that mug of apple cider, did you ever think your hair would like to get in on the action? Try a DIY fresh deep cleansing and conditioning treatment for your hair. Add a touch of fresh apple cider to some olive oil and apply to dry hair. Make sure to massage into scalp. Wear a shower cap for about 15 mins, and then rinse. The blend washes away product buildup, while conditioning and softening the hair.
