Apart from the nutritious fact of green apples, there is also a “Beauty” secret and that is if those who consume green apples on a daily basis have their skin flawless and sparkling, you can rest assured that they consume a green apple a day! This is because of the Vitamins A, B and C which are embedded in the green apple and in return which are good for the skin. Karen Behnke of California bountiful, a Skin Care Company, says, “Most people are astounded to learn that the skin absorbs over 60% of what is placed on it.” After a person reaches 30 years, the skin slowly starts its journey up the “wrinkling” stage. Karen says that green apple treatment is indeed good for the skin and keeps wrinkles at bay. She further goes on the say that one green apple, 10 green grapes, one teaspoon of lime juice, with a helping of Aloe gel made into a paste and applied on the face and neck, helps give your skin a natural sparkle. This paste should be kept on for 20 minutes and then washed away with warm water.
So the next time you draw up your grocery list, do not forget to add a generous number of green apples.
