Benefits of Pomegranate in skincare
It may be one of the oldest fruits in the world but it has only recently become the superstar fruit for skincare experts. Pomegranates have increased in popularity as a fruit that can lower inflammation and improve health from the inside out.
This powerful fruit is rich in conjugated fatty acids and antioxidants including catechins and flavonoids, the antioxidant found in other plants such as berries or green tea.
It has been proven that eating pomegranate or drinking its juice work best, but topical applications could provide some benefits too.
Pomegranate extract offers serious skincare benefits regardless of skin type, condition or age so why not including this amazing fruit into your skincare routine?
The antioxidants found in pomegranate extract plump the skin and promote collagen production. Collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin and connective tissues, and when the collagen production is accelerated the skin gets a bouncier and more youthful appearance.
Pomegranate also increases cell regeneration, which means your skin is able to get rid of old skin cells so it can rejuvenate quicker.
One of the main contributors to poor skin health and directly linked to lifestyle and environment, is inflammation.
Pomegranate contains Omega-5 punicic acid (a type of linolenic acid) which has amazing anti-inflammatory properties. Using a pomegranate serum or moisturiser helps to reduce free radical damage, which means decrease skin inflammation.
It has also been proven that antioxidants may be able to reduce the symptoms of certain inflammatory skin conditions like acne and eczema.
Pomegranate can provide some protection against sun exposure as the antioxidants help provide natural protection against ultraviolet (UV) rays. Of course it doesn’t mean you should skip out on applying daily sunscreen, but it can help.
The fruit has sun protective compounds that can help prevent skin cancer, relieve sunburn but also reduce the signs of sun damage.
Skincare that includes crushed seeds of the pomegranate fruit help with exfoliation which is very important in terms of getting rid of dead skin cells.
Pomegranate has excellent moisturising properties and its small molecular structure allows it to penetrate deeply into the skin which is effective for treating dry skin.
Its protective and nourishing properties as a dry oil mean that it is absorbed quickly into the skin without leaving any greasy residue. It is perfect for most skin types.
Using a product that contains pomegranate seed oil is a great choice as this ingredient works for most skin types, of course it also depends on the skincare ingredients pomegranate is combined with.
As pomegranate oil penetrates deeply into the skin, it is perfect to soothe dry, cracked, and irritated skin. It contains punicic acid, an omega 5 fatty acid that hydrates and prevents moisture loss.
You can either buy a pure version of pomegranate oil and add a few drops to your moisturiser to use once or twice a day, or buy a product that already contains this miraculous oil.
How to use pomegranate?
Pomegranate is safe to use for all skincare types and unless you’re allergic to it, there are no risks at all to try using it on your skin.
The fruit has a wealth of uses, mainly because it’s so rich in polyphenols that it can be used in almost any product and concentration for different purposes.
The most surprising benefit of pomegranate being its ability to regenerate skin cells.
However, just be careful if you're going to use a product with pomegranate extract because the polyphenols that reside in pomegranate quickly oxidize in water. So it is better to not letting the product sit on the shelf too long so you get the most powerful version of the product.
If you want to start using pomegranate daily, we recommend you to use our amazing Premium Natural Daily Plus + Face Serum with pomegranate extracts. Made from all natural ingredients, it’s perfect for you morning and night routine with your Roller and Gua Sha.
