"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." -- Benjamin Franklin
How many times have you heard the phrase, "An apple a day..."? Well, we know for sure that apples are nutritious. Not only does this crisp, refreshing fruit, rich in phytonutrients, help to regulate blood sugar and potentially reduce the risk of heart disease and lung cancer, but its impact on the skin is equally impressive. When it comes to anti-aging benefits, apple stem cells have pretty much been the gold standard for effective natural ingredients.
But why go natural anyway? Think of it this way: Is is better to drink a fruit juice or eat the whole fruit from which it is derived? The natural source is always going to be the healthier option, of course, since the fruit juice probably has suspicious extras like sugar and loads of preservatives. The ingredients in most skin care products these days pose similar concerns: preservatives, parabens, emulsifiers, esters -- things you wouldn't likely dare to ingest, yet you just as easily apply them to your body's largest organ. Luckily, Mother Earth offers an abundance of natural sources for treating and protecting the skin, and studies have shown these ingredients to be as beneficial as their synthetic counterparts.
If you're already eating your apple a day, good for you! But why not add an extra dose of antioxidants topically with a daily serum? Apple stem cells in Theraesthetics Botanical Stem Cell Serum maintain and help repair skin tissue by boosting the production of human stem cells, which, sadly, are depleted over time. This skin rejuvenating wrinkle fighter -- with seaweed extract and hyaluronic acid -- penetrates deep into the skin's surface to smooth creases and help prevent premature wrinkles.
Theraplex Theraesthetics line features a variety of antioxidant botanicals -- from rose hip seeds (Rose Hip Cleanser) to red grapes (Resveratrol Peptide Complex) and, of course, apples (Botanical Stem Cell Serum). The new Theraesthetics Travel Kit features all six products from the line in miniature pump bottles, so you can try them all. Consider it your test drive for making your skin care routine a little greener.
