The scent of crisp peppermint and a large family meal complete with a side of cranberry sauce are quintessential holiday traditions.
Did you know these beloved flavors can also give you beautiful skin?
Peppermint oil is easy to find and we love using it in our facials come the holiday season. You can also use it in a variety of treatments at home. Mix peppermint oil with a base oil like grape seed oil, or jojoba, and apply it to your skin. The menthol in peppermint helps cool your face and reduce redness.
Mint also has a naturally high content of solicylic acid, which is used in many skin care products. The acid softens and loosens dry skin as well as unclog pores.
Cranberries are naturally rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin K and plenty of other antioxidants, which will keep your skin looking healthy and even decrease dark circles. This power-packed berry also acts as a natural toner, and when combined with moisture-rich honey and yogurt, creates a soothing mask.
