Pomegranates. One word comes to mind: yummy! It’s a delicious wintertime fruit many of us enjoy, but did you know pomegranates actually have benefits for your redhead skin? Although pomegranates are great for eating, they can also be found in a number of skincare products too.
What are the benefits of pomegranate?
1. Helps promote skin elasticity: Pomegranates have plenty of vitamins and nutrients to keep our bodies healthy. They contain fiber, protein, vitamins C & K, folate, and potassium. Vitamin C is a necessary vitamin for the body’s production of collagen, which promotes elasticity in the skin to keep it youthful
2. Reduces signs of aging: Pomegranates contain punicalagin, which is a potent antioxidant found in both the juice and the peel. Pomegranates actually contain more antioxidants than red wine and green tea. Antioxidants are key in reducing signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines and protecting the skin from sun damage.
3. Great for acne-prone skin: Another wonderful property of pomegranates is their anti-inflammatory properties. This can help with reducing redness and swelling in the face, especially for those with acne-prone/sensitive/ irritated redhead skin. Additionally, pomegranate has antibacterial properties to help fight inflammation and infection.
4. Hydrates skin: Pomegranate seed oil is extremely hydrating and can penetrate even the driest of skin. In addition to moisturizing the surface-level skin, pomegranate seed oil can help to cleanse the skin of dirt and impurities.
