“While the old adage, an apple a day will keep the doctor away is very true, an apple on your face a day will keep old age away. It is also one of the most unknown benefits of apples,” he said.

Dr Candrawinata is a health and wellness expert, clinical nutritionist, food scientist, antioxidant researcher and founder of Renovatio Bioscience, an Australian company that makes skin care, supplements and pantry products from 100 per cent Australian apples.

The products contain activated phenolics, the world’s most potent form of antioxidants capable of being rapidly absorbed by the body.

“Apples are one of the most beneficial and versatile fruits in the world.   Not only are they good for your insides, they are also very good for your outsides,” Dr  Candrawinata said.

“I have been researching the benefits of apples for many years and through my research at both the University of Newcastle and as the technical lead for product development and research, I have been able to identify the extraordinary range of benefits that the fruit is able to provide because of its unique composition, make-up and chemistry,” he said.

Dr Candrawinata recommends that everyone consumes at least one apple a day and has some spare for other important things such as supporting facial skin health as well as apple cider vinegar which is made from apples, particularly the activated type.

“One of the best and easiest ways to treat dark circles is to apply fresh apple to the skin. Apples contain tannic acid or tannins that help reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.  They also help to nourish and invigorate the delicate skin around your eyes.”

“Apple cider vinegar is also one of the most versatile products.  Because of its high acidity level and natural ingredients, apple cider vinegar is considered by many beauty lovers to be one of the best facial toners on the market,”

“Used daily on the face it helps to correct the skin’s pH balance, stimulate skin renewal and remove excess oil.   Over a period of time, the skin looks noticeably fresher and more toned.  It is particularly helpful for the treatment of pimples and acne.”
