Apples are rich in vitamins A, B and C, as well as beta-carotene, malic acid and antioxidants. These nutrients help maintain healthy and younger-looking skin.


Malic acid, being an alpha hydroxy acid, is considered good for maintaining soft and smooth skin because of its exfoliating properties. The antioxidants present in apples also promote radiant and rejuvenated skin.

This night cream also includes extra-virgin olive oil and rose water. Both olive oil and rose water help improve skin tone and reduce pigmentation.

Olive oil also works as a natural skin moisturizer and delays the effects of aging on skin due to its healthy fats and antioxidants.

Rose water is a great beauty aid as it calms acne, maintains the skin’s pH balance, heals scars, regenerates skin tissues and revitalizes aging skin. It has soothing, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, not to mention the pleasing smell.

  • Olive oil
  • Rose water

    1. I used a healing toner (natural) that I purchased online. I think any floral water/astringent would work but rose water is highly prized for it’s beauty uses.

  1. Do you go to sleep with this on or do I only use it for some time and wash my face before bed time? It looks like it will be messy in bed. Can I use coconut oil instead or mix them both since coconut oil is so good for out skin?

    1. Any oil will work but since the apple is tacky/sticky I don’t suggest castor oil. Squalane oil is fancy olive oil. That’s what I used. You can find it on Amazon fairly cheaply. I paid $20 w/ shipping for 2 oz.

  2. I followed this recipe EXACTLY as written and it came out VERY runny and sticky (assuming this is the apple). I suggest an apple and a half and not a great option for acne. While it’s very true that apple itself can be a great option as a mask, I don’t suggest it as a cream.

  3. I choose to use this its very natural…avoiding to buy expensives creams . Thanks home made remedies. 🙂 :* ♡♡♡ i love it
