Its antioxidant properties help prevent skin from showing signs of premature aging by restoring its smoothness, creating a protective barrier against harmful UV rays, and preventing skin damage caused by free radicals. Its light texture allows Apple Seed to soften the skin while penetrating it to cleanse the pores and prevent blackheads as well as future acne breakouts.
