Cranberry and Apple:


For starters, cranberries are packed full of vitamin C which aids collagen production, meaning skin is plumped, glowing and firm. Cranberries also oxygenate skin cells making it easier for your skin to maximise absorption of other essences and serums... essences like Apple.


Apples also boast a high vitamin C content, but also contain completely naturally occurring copper which encourages your skin to produce melanin, this means that your skin will have a more even tone - an even skin tone can help in the even application of make-up, or if you dare to bare it will also leave you with a glowing, nourished complexion.
