Pomegranates have always been known for their beautifying properties, as a symbol of over-all health, prosperity, and fertility. Studies have shown that pomegranates have great anti-aging benefits from the inside-out and the outside-in to nourish, protect & rejuvenate!
Ellagic Acid- regenerates skin cells, protects collagen, guards against UV rays, prevents sun damage & protects against skin cancer!
Anthocycanins- protects cells from oxidative, enviromental stress & damage, protects DNA & boosts production of anti-oxidants.
Punicalagins- renews cells, increases micro-circulation, prevents & smoothes wrinkles!
Pomegranates have been proven to protect and strenghthen the skin on the surface & regenerate cells in the deeper layers! They aid in the production of COLLAGEN! (That key protein that maintains firm, smooth & perky skin!)
Thanks to their anti-oxidant powers, pomegranates protect against sun damage and ward off skin damage, skin cancer and the effects of photoaging. Pomegranates have powerful anti-aging action which allows the anti-oxidants to fight free radicals that damage the skin, including hyper-pigmentation and age spots.
They offer deep hydration allowing the oil extracted from the seeds to penetrate deep into the skin to fortify moisture. Pomegranate is also loaded with Omega-5 fatty acid that locks in moisture & keeps bacteria out.
There a many pomegranate beauty-boosting products on the market these days, I have tried & recommend Weleda Pomegranate Firming Night Cream, I started using it a few days ago & I already notice a big difference in my skin, when I wake up my skin is still hydrated!
