Not only is this superfood incredibly delicious, but pomegranate also boasts plenty of benefits for your skin, from helping to protect and strengthen skin cells to fighting off damaging free radicals, and so much more!
Pomegranate has an anti-ageing effect
Pomegranate contains ellagic acid, which helps to regenerate skin cells while protecting your skin’s collagen stores at the same time. It also helps to guard against harmful UV rays and fights off damaging free radicals for younger looking skin.
It deeply nourishes your skin
Pomegranate seed oil easily penetrates your skin, making it ideal for use in hand creams (if you’ve tried our Pomegranate Hand Lotion, you’ll know this from experience – the lotion absorbs almost instantly and doesn’t leave your hands feeling greasy or sticky). It’s also loaded with punicic acid, which reduces inflammation and also helps to lock in moisture, while ensuring that any harmful things (like germs and bacteria) are kept out of the skin.
It has powerful sun protection abilities
Although we wouldn’t recommend that you skip your daily sunscreen just yet, it’s been reported that the high levels of anti-oxidants contained in pomegranate helps to ward off sun damage, and can even relieve sunburn symptoms.
Pomegranate boosts collagen production
Collagen is the basic building block that helps to maintain firm, plump skin. Over time and with age, collagen within the skin breaks down, leading to fine lines, wrinkles and a reduction in the skin’s elasticity. Pomegranates contain special compounds that inhibit the enzymes that break down collagen to ensure that your skin is firmer, smoother, and plumper for longer.
