3 DIY Exfoliating Facial Masks

Exfoliating is one of the most important steps when it comes to skincare. As we age, the skin doesn't naturally exfoliate as often, so it needs a little help. The immediate benefit to exfoliating is that it removes dead skin and encourages skin cell renewal, for younger looking skin. If you incorporate an exfoliating scrub into your skincare regimen once a week, the long term benefits include a reduction of dark spots, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Best of all, with regular at-home exfoliation, you don't need to spend a lot of money on expensive microdermabrasion treatments. With these easy-to-make DIY masks, you'll enjoy glowing, younger-looking skin with the added bonus of a fun and relaxing #selfcaresunday.

I've created three different DIY exfoliating masks to meet different skincare needs and to match different skin types. Each mask is formulated with an essential oil to enhance those skincare benefits. Though you could omit them and just use the first two ingr…

Salted-Caramel Apple Pie


When the colder weather hits and the holidays approach, I consistently have pie on the brain when it comes to desserts. A warm flaky crust and fall spices can only be improved upon by something like salted caramel. After all, my love likes caramel...and pie, so when I wanted to bake him something, caramel apple pie was the perfect choice.:)



I used this Williams Sonoma recipe as a start for the apple filling. It was the first time I pre-cooked apple slices before baking them in a pie, and I have to say it turned out absolutely perfect.




I also noticed the crust turned out better then usual. I used this basic pie crust recipe that I always use, but I think cooking the juices out of the apple first helped to make a more crispy crust.




I used a leaf cookie cutter and a small knife to create the look of real leaves on top. Brush them with the egg wash to help them stick to the top crust.

There is a salted-caramel recipe in the Williams Sonoma version, but if you need to make it dairy-free like I did, try this easy caramel sauce recipe. Enjoy!:)
