Pomegranates – great inside and out!
Who doesn’t want to look younger and enjoy smooth beautiful skin? Pomegranates have many health benefits and should be included in our daily diets, but did you know can be applied topically on the skin? Being in the skin care industry, I’ve noticed pomegranate juice or oil on several cosmetic formulations. You can apply it on the skin either by using the raw fruit or purchase it in a cosmetic cream.
Pomegranates are know to promote healthy blood circulation which helps prevent acne as well as heal it as it regenerates the tissues of the skin. This also helps repair damages skin cells caused from over exposure to the sun or aging. Pomegranate extends the life of fibroblasts, which are the cells that are responsible for the production of collagen and elastin.
There are two methods of availing pomegranate skin benefits, you can either opt for cosmetic formulations or use it in its most natural form. Cosmetic creams use an extract of pomegranate seeds and combine it with an array of other chemical ingredients. As a result, most of the properties are lost due to over-processing. Moreover, these products are often very expensive and do not produce desired results. The best solution to overcome this problem is by applying homemade pomegranate juice on your skin.
Put a handful of pomegranate seeds in a blender to make juice. Strain it and apply it directly on your skin or any affected area. Since, no processing or artificial ingredients are involved, the properties remain intact. Thus, natural pomegranate juice is the best way to get maximum pomegranate benefits for skin.
You need to use it for a prolonged period of time to actually notice the results. In the meanwhile, you can also get rid of any health problems concerned with digestion or circulation.
If you chose to use products, here are a few affordable ones you might consider.
