October may be known for pumpkins, but it’s actually National Apple Month. Across the country, delicious, freshly-picked apples are available for you to enjoy. In addition to being a healthy and refreshing snack, apples are also excellent for your hair, skin, and nails. They contain magic acid which helps keep your skin firm and glowing. Apples are an excellent source of skin-friendly vitamins A, C, B5, B9, minerals such as copper and antioxidants which keep your skin, hair, and nails healthy.
Vitamin C helps in formation of collagen, a protein which keeps your skin elastic and young. It also speeds up skin’s cell production and strengthens hair and nails. Copper aids in the formation of melanin which helps to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Vitamin A fights wrinkles while vitamins B5 and B9 help fight acne and prevent skin irritations.
