We all know that pomegranates are loaded with countless health benefits, but have you ever wondered if pomegranate juice can do wonders for your skin? The fact that this delicious fruit is full of powerful antioxidants makes it a natural anti-aging agent. (Read: 8 reasons why you should start eating pomegranates.) Wren Holmes, Urban Veda Urban Ayurvedic Skin Care Brand Manager, reports femalefirst.co.uk on 5 reasons why this tasty fruit is good for the skin:
Powerful antioxidant: one of the key measures to combat skin aging is to improve the nutrition of the skin. Since pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, they not only nourish the skin, they also prevent the damage caused by free radicals.
Cell regeneration: in addition to being an effective anti-inflammatory and high in essential fatty acids, the pomegranate possesses powerful anti-aging compounds, which help to stimulate the cells of keratinocytes (skin cells) thus helping cell regeneration.
Anti-aging: the vitamin C present in the pomegranate plays a key role in the formation of collagen (the skin is composed of collagen and elastic fibers), which allows several proteins to be responsible for producing a healthy and strong skin. A pomegranate owns 48 percent of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C.
Moisturizing cream: organic pomegranate juice is extremely beneficial for the skin. Not only does it penetrate deeply into the skin, it also hydrates the skin with micronutrients and phytochemicals.
Exfoliation: crushed pomegranate seeds act as an excellent natural aid to exfoliate dead skin cells.
