Whether you are new to skincare or are a seasoned professional, you are guaranteed to come across the many uses and benefits of pomegranate oil. But what exactly is it good for?Pomegranates are a Mediterranean superfruit packed with delicious seeds filled with versatile oils, holding rich antioxidants, potent fatty acids, polyphenol and much more. These offer a range of benefits for the skin, including support for healthy aging, managing inflammation, offering UV protection, and containing antimicrobial properties. As such, to say that pomegranates are good for you is quite an understatement!
To explore this in more detail, here are just a few of the truly amazing uses to demonstrate what you can enjoy from a pomegranate-infused beauty routine.
The Anti-Aging Benefits of PomegranateWhen considering what pomegranate is good for, look no further than the astonishing effect it has on the healthy appearance of our skin. Packed with incredible anti-aging properties, pomegranates contain high levels of vitamin A, which actively works to support skin repair and cell regeneration, promoting youthful skin, boosting collagen and elastin production, and softening the texture of the skin’s surface.
Thanks to their strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, the oil from these wonder seeds helps to reduce signs of aging like wrinkles and dark spots to provide a lively, even complexion.
UV Protection Benefits of PomegranateWe all love a bit of sunshine, but extensive UV rays can cause premature aging and serious damage to our skin. Did you know, however, that pomegranates are also good for your skin, even when you’re out and about? As one of the best uses of pomegranate oil is to combat the damaging effects of the sun.
Thanks to its superfood properties, pomegranates provide a boost in UV protection, including photo-ageing. They also contain ellagic acid, which inhibits the destruction of collagen, all while preventing the appearance of hyper-pigmentation and age spots. When paired with an effective sunscreen, the oil from those little pomegranate seeds offers your skin the benefits of full sun protection, keeping your skin healthy so you don’t have to worry!
