What type of skin is apple cosmetics suitable for?
Most often, apple extract (especially the oil obtained from apple seeds) is used to moisturize the skin and give the complexion an even tone and radiance. At the same time, apple bioflavonoids are powerful antioxidants that also smooth wrinkles, and also protect against adverse environmental influences, preventing premature aging and skin laxity.
Also, apple extract is great for girls and women who are struggling with pigmentation: apple lightens spots and makes the skin even.
For women over 35, it is better to look for products that contain Swiss apple stem cells. They are able to penetrate deeply into the skin and fight skin aging, smoothing even very deep wrinkles. Serums with Swiss apple stem cells are especially good!
This fruit is ideal for adolescents or those with oily or problem skin types. Especially if the products contain malic (oxysuccinic) acid secreted from the pulp of unripe apples. It has antioxidant, cleansing, anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, and enhances cellular metabolism. It is not for nothing that it is often added to the composition of surface peels that can cleanse the skin of dying epidermis. Unlike chemical peels, malic acid preparations do not lead to severe flaking and irritation of the skin.
