Top 5 pomegranate skin care benefits.
The history of this beautiful crimson fruit reveals references to the pomegranate dating back more than 3000 years ago. Considered to be a fruit of the gods and long-regarded as a symbol of fertility. The ancients were well aware of its health benefits, with it being a featured icon in the art and writings of numerous religions.
Pomegranate seems to be going through a renaissance with research unveiling that most pomegranate fruit parts—its juice, peel, oil, seed, flowers, bark, roots—are known to possess enormous antioxidant activity (amongst other things), with benefits especially for the skin:
Our top 5 pomegranate skin care benefits.
Excellent Moisturising properties: has excellent moisturising, protective and nourishing properties and as a "dry" oil, it absorbs readily into skin without leaving any greasy residue and is perfect for most skin types.
Stimulates skin cell regeneration: helps protect the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin) and helps with skin cell regeneration increasing circulation, aiding in tissue repair and wound healing.
Anti – inflammatory: Inflammation is one of the main contributors to poor skin health and is directly related to one’s lifestyle and environment. Pomegranate contains Omega-5 punicic acid (a type of linolenic acid) which has amazing anti-inflammatory properties.
Protects against UV damage: It can provide some protection against sun exposure. Clinical studies have shown that the wondrous ellagic acid, a polyphenol antioxidant not only inhibited sunburn in young women, but also created subjective improvements by the subjects in their own complexions.
Rich in antioxidants, which offers protection from free radical damage. According to a 2005 study, pomegranate extract is capable of protecting against oxidative damage, while also increasing/maintaining the levels of antioxidant molecules in vivo (within the living body). Apparently, ellagic acid helps to increase the body's own built-in antioxidant glutathione, which also helps protect cells from free radical damage.
If anything pomegranate deserves to be dubbed a superfruit!
