A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.

CranBeauty

The cranberry is a little fruit that is very big this time of year. Cranberries are good for you inside and out.  As a side dish, cranberries are rich in antioxidants that ward off bad cholesterol and reduce blood pressure.  When applied topically, they prevent wrinkles, exfoliate and act as a gentle astringent.  Each berry contains vitamins A and C to help with collagen production and hydrate skin.  Combine these ingredients from your pantry to maximize the benefits!

½ cup of cranberries
¼ cup of plain yogurt
3 teaspoons of olive oil
¼ cup of honey

 
Blend all together to a creamy consistency.  After it thickens, apply mixture to face for 15 minutes, rinse with warm water and moisturize.

DIY beauty is not for you?  Try these cranberry infused products instead:
