Pomegranate Cream

What's so great about a pomegranate cream?

Think of your skin cells like an apple cut into pieces. It starts to turn brown because it's oxidizing. Our skin, in a similar way, starts to wrinkle and age due to oxidative stress. The potent antioxidants in pomegranates help to neutralize free radicals.

In the February 2006 Journal of Ethnopharmacology, a study showed that pomegranate seed oil stimulates the growth of keratinocytes, which promote regeneration of the skin and slowed down its thinning. In the March 2006 issue of Photochemistry and Photobiology, it showed that pomegranate fruit extract can actually prevent damage from UVA radiation.

Pomegranates are an amazing fruit and can help to promote skin repair in a completely natural way. Look for pomegranate oil or juice as ingredients in skin care products.
