An Apple A Day

An Apple A Day | Apple Health Benefits

I have never been a big apple eater, until lately. Granted, it has to be the perfect apple for me to enjoy it. Perfect being, firm, juicy and a little but sweet. I discovered Honeycrisp Apples, and I love them!

I am going to give you a quick rundown of the benefits that apples can have on your skins appearance.

Apples are loaded with fiber and fiber helps to clean the bowels. The cleaner your insides are, the cleaner your outside is!

  • The skin of apples contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory pigment called Quercetin which is a powerful defense against free-radicals. Be sure to eat the skin on your apples.
  • The skin of apples also contains a phytochemical that defends against wrinkle -causing agents. Yes, regular (I mean REGULAR) consumption of apples help slow down wrinkles!
  • Apple enzymes in topical skin care can help lighten pigment, fight bacteria and surely promote healthier skin when applied topically.

This time of year, apples are definitely in season and so yummy in so many recipes. Experiment with how many different ways you can get your apple intake. Coating your apple with sugar takes away from the natural benefits, so keep the sugar at bay with this delicious, good for you treat!
