Quick Apple/Yogurt Facial Cleanser

"A man finds room in the few square inches of his face
for the traits of all his ancestors;
for the expression of all his history, all his wants."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today's book is

Country Living's Healthy Living Pure Beauty: Simple Recipes for a Naturally Beautiful Body (Healthy Living)

This book is a wonderful resource for making your own beauty and cleansing products. 
This recipe I am going to share with you is made from ingredients that you probably already have.

Quick Apple & Yogurt Cleanser
1/8 of a medium apple, peeled and cored
2 Tablespoons of plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon of honey
1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil

In a blender or mini food processor, blend these ingredients for 30 seconds.
Apply in a circular motion to your face (avoiding the eye area) and then rinse with warm water.

In addition to being an astringent, apples are full of malic acid and vitamin C,
both of which dissolve facial grease and dirt.
The enzymes in the yogurt help restore the skin's natural pH balance. 
I hope you enjoy your natural, glowing skin!
