Apples are good for your skin
Apples are known for their health benefits. Apples come in a variety of colors, including green, yellow, and red. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Researchers have found a variety of health benefits, from reducing bad cholesterol levels to reducing cancer risk1. Even children’s rhymes celebrate this superfruit, such as “an apple every day keeps the doctor at bay.” Did you know the apple is also a secret weapon for healthy skin?

Apple cider or apple juice in 3 quarts
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup of lemon juice

Use two layers of cheesecloth to create a spice bag. Place the cloves, bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, and allspice in the bag and close it with kitchen string.
In a large pan, steep the spice bag with a mixture of apple juice, orange and lime juices, orange zest, brown sugar, and salt. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer it for 30 minutes.
