Apples contain a wide range of flavonoids which are known for their antioxidant activity. Antioxidants are chemicals that reduce or prevent oxidation, thus preventing cell and tissue damage from free radicals. They have been used as a beauty aid for decades. Apples are loaded with pectin, a soluble fiber that helps tighten pores, and fruit acids that help purify and promote cell renewal. Apples are also a skin toner and help fight acne. The old saying, "an Apple a day, keeps the doctor away," comes from am old English adage, "To eat an apple before going to bed, will make the doctor beg his bread."
