It’s November, a month when we tend to cook and bake with cranberries, more so than any other month of the year. But what about other uses for cranberries? Cranberries are a great source of Vitamin C, whether you eat them or wear them. Yes, I said wear them—as in a facemask. The ingredients in this mask are good enough to eat, but they’re also very good for your complexion.

1/2 cup fresh cranberries
1 T. plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. cocoa powder

Mash all the ingredients together and apply to your face. Allow the mask to sit for fifteen minutes, then wipe off with a damp washcloth.

The yogurt will act to hydrate your skin. The apple cider vinegar balances your skin’s pH level, and the cocoa will give your skin an antioxidant boost.
