Juicy, delicious, and refreshing; the pomegranate is probably one of the most popular fruits in the flavor kingdom!
Loved for its tangy yet sweet tasting little beads, the pomegranate is what we call a superfood, something that’s backed by the many studies that go into detail on what makes the fruit the king of them all. Packed with antioxidants, fiber, potassium, vitamins C, B and K, just 100 grams of pomegranate give you enough energy and nutrition to help you power through the day.
It also helps that they’re only 83 calories per 100 grams, which makes it a great treat for all those calorie-conscious people out there with a sweet tooth.
Turning to the other side of the scale though, it’s really through its use in skincare and beauty that we really see the pomegranate shine, even more than it usually does!
The Purpose of Pomegranate in Skincare
Well-loved in the beauty community, the pomegranate is considered an essential ingredient in skincare, especially amongst users who want to treat their damaged skin.
Known for its effects against sun damage, dehydrated and dry skin as well as acne, pomegranate—when combined with the right ingredients—is used to treat inflammatory skin problems, like psoriasis and eczema.
Pomegranate also works as a powerful anti-aging ingredient. The antioxidants in the fruit prevent your skin’s connective tissue from degrading, all while stimulating the body’s collagen synthesis. This allows your skin to become firmer and smoother. Alongside, the fruit’s punicic acid allows the skin to lock in moisture, and that not only keeps your skin hydrated; it also reduces wrinkles, which you eventually develop through UVB radiation exposure.
Additionally, simply eating the pomegranate seeds works wonders for your hair, so you can only imagine how beneficial it is if you apply the oil or any serum directly!
Along with strengthening hair follicles, pomegranate also improves blood circulation to the scalp and through that, stimulates hair growth. Pomegranate oil also aids as a smoothing agent in hot oil treatments, and is the perfect ingredient for kinky, wavy or curly hair that needs deep conditioning.
