The chemicals you put on your skin matter. That's why it's always important to know what ingredients are in your go-to lotions, soaps, and face washes. Natural, plant-based ingredients tend to be better for your skin, especially if it's sensitive. One of the best ingredients to look for is pomegranate or pomegranate seeds. The fruit is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants. Not only can those nutrients enrich your diet, but they can also enrich your skin. Here's how:
Keep your skin hydrated.
Drinking water is only part of a good strategy for keeping your skin healthy and hydrated. Topical products with pomegranate juice give your skin a fresh source of vitamin C. This can make your skin feel smoother and less rough by directly moisturizing the skin.
Pomegranate seed oil, specifically, can help promote cellular growth in your epidermis, or the top layers of your skin. So look for both types of pomegranate infusions in skin care products.
Low-key protect your skin.
Protecting your skin from the sun is one of the most essential elements of good skin care. Even if you aren't in direct sun or you're in the sun just a few times throughout the day, the sun can quickly cause burns and skin irritation. The damage goes beyond skin-deep, too: UV radiation can damage skin cells, hasten the development of wrinkles, and increase your risk of cancer. This is called photoinduced skin aging. So sunscreen is a must.
Restorative lotions and creams with pomegranate also help because they contain polyphenols and other antioxidants. These antioxidants can help reduce oxidation in your cells.
Look less tired.
It's hard to always fit the right amount of sleep into your schedule. But poor sleep can reduce collagen production and leave your skin looking tired and less elastic. Over time, this can make wrinkles grow faster. Products with pomegranate for your face can help boost collagen production. Collagen is the protein that makes look fuller and more structured. Even better, pomegranates can help stimulate blood flow in your face to make your skin glow.
Clear your skin.
Keeping your skin clear can be hard, especially if you're stressed. Acne and breakouts can have a spiraling effect. Because they can be infected or include bacteria that propagate more acne, the skin condition can spread as you try to treat it and the more you touch your face. Start to stop the cycle with pomegranate-based facial products. The antioxidants can reduce the initial inflammation and redness that make you worry about acne. The astringent or cleaning properties in the peel can also help keep the rest of your skin clean.
