Best things often come in small packages, and this saying is absolutely true for pomegranates.
Who knew that something so tiny would be packed with extraordinary beauty benefits? So, let us have a look at how pomegranates can work wonders for your skin.
1. Anti-ageing properties
Pomegranates have anti-ageing properties and can rejuvenate your skin internally as well as externally. The oil from the seeds found in the fruit helps strengthen the epidermis (outer layer of your skin), which reduces or delays wrinkles. Drinking a glass of pomegranate juice daily helps to attain glowing skin.
Beauty Tip: Drink a glass of pomegranate juice daily for glowing skin.
2. Keeps pimples at bay
The root cause of pimples is the hormonal imbalance in your body. Pomegranates are a rich source of vitamin C which regulates the production of sebum, an oily substance secreted by your skin, and which is the main cause of pimples. Pomegranates also help in improving your blood circulation and improving digestion.
Beauty Tip: If you want to enjoy the skin care benefits of pomegranates, then mix pomegranate seeds (one tablespoon) with some brown sugar (two tablespoons) , honey (two tablespoons), avocado oil (two tablespoons) and orange peel (one tablespoon) to make a scrub. Use it daily for a few minutes for best results.
3. Keeps your skin healthy
Collagen, which is the basic component of your skin, ensures that your skin remains soft, smooth and firm. Pomegranates contain certain compounds which stop enzymes from breaking down collagen, which keeps your skin healthy. Pomegranates also help in the growth of fibroblasts (which basically are the cells that produce elastin and collagen) and ensure that your skin remains soft and supple.
