Some of the most well known, yet most neglected ways to ensure this is exercising regularly, or staying active in some form, even if it's going for long walks or dancing; making healthy eating and beverage choices (I steer clear from alcohol, soda, and sugary juices), stay away from tanning beds, limit our sun exposure and protect our skin with sunscreen when we're out in the sun; getting plenty of rest, avoid negativity much as possible, and drinking plenty of water. This sage advice may have been given many times before me, but I'll state these tips again since they are good reminders. :)
Another surefire way to age gracefully is incorporating a skin care regimen in your daily routine, using high quality skin care products, such as the Skin Rejuvenating Cream with Clinical Strength Apple Stem Cells ($80) by Apiel Skincare. The price may be steep for some, especially for those who prefer budget-conscious beauty products. However, if it is quality that you seek, quality you will get with this cream! Needless to say, it is well worth the price. Although I'm not showing any signs of aging yet, this cream has been helping me achieve healthy looking skin. Also, I have mentioned many times before about how selective I am with skin care products since I break out easily (I have sensitive combination skin), especially any moisturizing products. However, this clearly hasn't been the case with this cream. It balances my skin well and gives it the moisture that it needs without provoking a breakout. It also has a light, scrumptious scent that is reminiscent of green apples.
apiel Skin Care uses only the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple, an 18th century variety of apple grown only in Switzerland. Though very rare today, this unique variety was known for its remarkable capacity to keep fresh for long periods of time.
In fact, this variety of apple could be stored for months without becoming shriveled or losing flavor.
Over the past couple of hundred years, the Uttwiler Spätlauber lost its popularity to sweeter apples because of its bitter taste.
As a result, this type of apple is both special and rare today.
Due to the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple’s special characteristics, specifically its long-lived green apple stem cells, researchers and scientists in Switzerland studied and applied these characteristics for cosmetic use (PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica).
Today, technology has made it possible to cultivate these highly effective green apple stem cells, and include them in the apiel products.
