Skin Food | Vitamin C rich Pomegranate
December 06 2015
Feed your skin with Pomegranate! Not only are pomegranates a healthy source of vitamins when eaten, they are equally as wholesome and nutritious for skin. The antioxidants in pomegranates encourage skin cell regeneration, aiding in the repair of tissues and encouraging circulation. Their high Vitamin C content plays a key role in formation of collagen, resulting in softer, firmer skin. Deeply nourishing to the outer epidermal layer, pomegranates can help to prevent age spots, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation caused by sun damage.
Pomegranates help protect the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin) and helps with skin cell regeneration in the epidermis and dermis (inner layer), increasing circulation and healing the skin, aiding in tissue repair and healing wounds. A great healing product containing this ingredient is our Protecting + Restoring Face Balm
. This is a great way to create a shield on your face, thus protecting you from environmental toxins.
Another great quality is the sun protective compounds that help prevent skin cancer, relieve sunburns and reduce the signs of sun damage. This oil works to protect against skin cancer because of ellagic acid - a polyphenol antioxidant found in large quantities in pomegranates - which researchers have found inhibits the growth of skin tumours.
Pomegranates protect against premature aging by helping reduce the signs of skin aging caused by sun damage and exposure, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Pomegranates also help prevent hyper-pigmentation and age spots.
With its incredible antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging properties and ability to encourage radiant skin, the pomegranate has been incorporated in our skin care products; especially anti-aging and lightening products.
