What It Does
Apple is rich in antioxidants and vitamins, which hydrates, brightens, fights free radicals and evens skin tone.
Why It Works
Apple extract contains high amounts of phenolic compounds, flavonoids, antioxidants and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). Phenolic compounds and flavonoids reduce fine lines and wrinkles and fade dark spots. The antioxidants protect the skin by neutralizing free-radicals such as blue light damage, pollution and other environmental stressors. Additionally, the AHAs in apple extract break up the proteins that hold the skin cells together and remove dead skin to brighten and even skin tone.
