While apples are a lunchbox and grab and go staple (and they look great in a bowl on your kitchen counter too), fall’s queen of all fruits is also good for your skin. Read on and find out how apples offer some pretty beneficial solutions for the skin.  

Those vitamins though…

Apples are full of nutrients that nourish and support healthy skin, as their high content of vitamin C builds collagen. Plus copper helps the skin produce melanin which improves the skin’s color.

Hydrates the skin

The juice from apples when applied to the face can balance the oil production in your body, and is a great for helping hydrate the skin. It can also be used as an exfoliant. If your skin is particularly dry during the fall, consider adding a hydrating serum to your skin care routine.

A is for anti-aging

Studies show if you eat an apple on a regular basis it can help with eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. Happen to have a few extra apples in your kitchen? Try rubbing grated apple peel on your skin as gentle exfoliant. Leave on for 15 minutes and then rinse with cool water.

Lighten up

Apples have the ability to brighten and lighten your skin due to the high content of collagen and elastin. Soothing powers also help relieve redness and flakiness that can often develop in the cooler months.
