Each one of us has surely heard of the famous proverb “An apple a day keeps a doctor away”. This beneficial fruit is rich in vitamin C, vitamin A and copper, which are skin-friendly nutrients. The vitamin C in apple helps to re-store the collagen content of the skin. Collagen provides the elasticity to the skin, thus keeping the wrinkles at bay and also maintains the sin’s waterproof barrier.
The copper content in the apple helps to maintain the melanin production in the skin. Did you know that melanin in the skin helps to protect it from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun, thus providing the skin natural sunscreen. The vitamin A helps to build the damaged skin tissues and facilitate the growth of new cells.
