Applesauce is made of several #beautyfoods, including it's namesake, apples and cinnamon! Apples are high in vitamin C and naturally contain AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) malic acid, making them a great seasonal source for healthy skin. Cinnamon is good for detoxing because of its warming properties. This vasodilation microcirculates blood and lymph bringing vital nutrients to the surface of skin. Use this recipe in our Strawberry Apple Pie Exfoliating Masque, or eat alone for an on-the-glow snack!
