Beauty & Wellness

13 vitamins and 20 different mineral substances as well as trace elements, dietary fibres and antioxidants – the components of an apple offer everything beauty-conscious persons can dream of. Thanks to the interplay of its components the apple is the ideal natural anti-aging-product which relaxes skin and muscles.

It is easy to explain why apples are ideal for the human skin: They both have the same ph-value. This is why cosmetic products with apples are especially suited for sensitive, allergic skin types. And some components of the apple, the pectines, accelerate the regeneration of elastic fibres together with enzymes. The result is a tightened skin!

But the best is that producing cosmetic products based on apples is easy and cheap.

The following beauty suggestions have been taken from different sources. VI.P thus assumes no liability for the correctness of the contents.

Apple Oil

Apple Oil

Ingredients: 200 ml grape seed oil, 1 sweet apple (recommended variety: Fuji)
Cut the apple and put it into the grape seed oil. Steep for one or two days until the oil becomes reddish, but no longer than 48 hours as apples are easily perishable. The oil absorbs the apples’ active agents and can be used as body oil, massage oil or bath oil. The sweet Fuji has a particularly high hyaluronan level for a healthy and chubby skin after the care.

Apple Peeling

Apple Peeling

Ingredients: 1 apple (recommended variety: Braeburn or Winesap)
Divide the apple into two (for body peeling) or four (for face peeling) and make sure you get smooth cuts. Apply in circular movements and with light pressure to the clean and still wet face or body. The acid and sugar contents are responsible for a fine and smooth skin, whereas pectin moisturizes the skin. As the peeling isn’t sticky, you don’t have to wash it off.
