Pomegranate – The superfood for your skin

Pomegranate – The superfood for your skin

Pomegranate is one of my favourite superfoods, that I will quite happily eat by the spoonful whilst sat down watching tv. It’s something I have done ever since I was little after visiting our local Sunday market, picking up an array of fresh fruits.

It has been well known for its medicinal and beauty properties since ancient times and is the symbol for prosperity, ambition and fertility. Some even refer to it as the forbidden fruit from the garden of Eden.

But why is it so effective in beauty and what benefits does it have for my health?

 

  • Sun Protection and anti-ageing – Pomegranate is a powerful fruit rich in antioxidants. It contains a huge amount of vitamin C but also many other acids which are great at blocking free radical damage, which is a big cause for ageing.
  • Cell Regeneration – Not only does pomegranate detox your skin, but it also helps the skin repair from sun damage and other factors. It helps repair the outer layer of the skin, whilst increasing circulation and repairs the skin from the layers below. Pomegranate is particularly good if you have had any recent injuries to aid your healing.
  • Younger Skin – Pomegranates help to promote smooth, firm skin by promoting elastin and collagen production.
  • Dry Skin – Pomegranate penetrates deeply, softening and soothing dry, cracked and irritated skin. It also contains omega 5 acids which hydrate and prevent moisture loss.
  • Acne – It even works great for acne prone skin and scarring, combatting breakouts and soothing irritations.
