Apple and Frankincense Anti-Aging Cream

Frankincense is a powerful astringent that protects skin cells and prevents wrinkles. It is known to have been used bt the ancient Egyptians. It is the star ingredient of this anti-aging night cream. When combined with the vitamin filled apples and the fatty acids of avocado oil, the cream leaves skin plump and deeply moisturised.

As this is a heavier cream, apply it as the last step in your skincare routine before bed. By morning it will have worked its magic, leaving you looking and feeling baby smooth.
