Apples are great for skin:
An apple a day keeps the doctor away and it helps improve skin. Facial masks made from apples remove dead skin cells, treat blemishes, and increase the glow and shine of skin. Simply applying the pulp of an apple to skin can treat skin infections and maintain a healthy pH level. Reap the benefits by learning how to add apples to your skin treatment regimen.
Apples contain vitamins A and C, antioxidants that have many skin benefits. Vitamin A helps repair and maintain skin tissue, preventing skin from becoming dry and flaky. Vitamin C scavenges harmful free radicals and fights collagen and elastin destruction to support the structure of skin, helping to prevent signs of skin aging including wrinkles. Vitamin C helps to lighten skin, addressing sun and age spots that often appear on adult faces.
Additional benefits of apple for skin:
- Apples: exfoliating, mild astringent that benefits acneic skin, contains skin-renewing malic (AHA) acid, safe for sensitive skin
- Apple cider vinegar: made from raw apples, used to relieve skin and scalp itching, balance skin pH, and gently soothe and exfoliate
Using a cotton swab to apply apple cider vinegar to pimples helps to dry the blemishes, calm redness and inflammation, and prevent spreading. Non-oil face treatments and masks sometimes feature an apple base. An acne mask made from one teaspoon of crushed lavender, sage, or rosemary leaves, two tablespoons of raw or cooked mashed apple, and a pinch of baking soda or salt can be applied to skin, left on for ten minutes, and then rinsed away to keep the face clear and moisturized.
Make an anti-aging, skin brightening mask by combining one mashed apple, one teaspoon of grapefruit, orange, or lemon juice, two crushed basil leaves, and one tablespoon each of ground almond meal and cream, milk, or yogurt. Blend this to a fine mash, apply to the face, and leave on for ten to 15 minutes before rinsing off. For extra skin benefits, add two drops of lavender, rosemary, manuka, or tea tree oil.
To restore pH balance to skin, combine 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar with three cups of distilled water. After cleansing skin, dip a cotton ball into the solution and wipe it onto the face. Dabbing apple juice onto age spots helps to lighten them. A facial mask containing a blended mixture of one grated apple and two tablespoons of honey helps to repair skin when left on the face for ten to 20 minutes before being rinsed away.
