We often purchase beauty products because of the pull quotes on the front of the packages touting the seemingly impossible results. Unless you’re especially thorough, you skip the ingredients list on the back of the package – a crucial mistake made by many. “Secret Beauty Ingredient” is our way of finding those beauty ingredients that are becoming staples in the beauty world, or sometimes even better – beauty breakthroughs.
Since we’re deep into fall, we thought what better way to dive headfirst into autumn than with some seasonal beauty products? Apple picking and apple treats are fall staples, so if you’re an apple fanatic yourself, you’ll be happy to know that apples can be found in a number of beauty products, too.
They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but in the case of these beauty products, they also help keep skin and hair looking fabulous. Check out some of our favorite apple-infused products in the gallery above.
