Beautiful Skin with Pomegranates

Pomegranates are good for your skin and are becoming well entrenched in anti-ageing and sun care products. The oil is prized by the beauty industry and here are a dozen good reasons why:

  • Anti-inflammatory – pomegranate inhibits 2 enzymes linked to inflammation and early ageing
  • Anti-ageing
  • Sun protection, both before and after sun exposure. Pomegranate suppresses lipid peroxidation which is linked to damage from UV light
  • Promotes production of collagen and elastic for a more youthful look
  • Promotes thickening of the epidermal layer
  • Dry Skin rejuvenation
  • Hyperpigmentation reduction
  • Age-spot reduction
  • Antioxidant power
  • Anti-microbial properties
  • Wound healing -  contains phenolic compounds which can reduce healing time by 35% (Indian research)
  • Skin cancer prevention – the oil of pomegranate seeds contains high levels of ellagic acid, which inhibits growth of skin cancer .

LongevityBoom enjoys the Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Care  range sourced from organic farms in Turkey.  The serum is great.

But if there’s a fresh pomegranate in the house we like to make our own quick mask. Simply juice a section of fresh pomegranate, mix the juice with yogurt or kefir and apply as a mask for 15 minutes.  Rinse off.  Enjoy the benefits.

  1. I hardly comment, however i did some searching and wound up here Beautiful Skin with Pomegranates.
    And I do have a couple of questions for you if you do
    not mind. Is it only me or does it look as if like a few of the remarks come across as if they
    are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting
    on other places, I’d like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you list of all of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
