Pomegranates: Health and Beauty Benefits

Pomegranates boost your health inside and out. According to Healthline, the fruit contains polyphenols, tannins, anthocyanins (also found in raspberries), and vitamins C and K.

Together, these nutrients boost collagen, fight acne and inflammation, and brighten your skin.

According to the Canadian health group Half Your Plate, half a pomegranate contains 13% of the vitamin C and 16% of the vitamin K you need daily. Plus, the juice from one pomegranate contains about 40% of your daily recommended vitamin C intake.

Better yet, the juice also contains punicalagin, a powerful compound that gives the juice triple the antioxidant strength of red wine and green tea.

But the pomegranate offers other benefits, too. For instance, the seeds make healthy snacks, and you can even add the seeds and the oil to your face masks, serums, and scrubs.

Pomegranate: Myth vs. Fact

But while pomegranates’ nutrients fight aging and sun damage, they alone won’t cure your skin woes. For instance, despite some claims that the fruit reverses aging and prevents skin cancer, these reports only tell half the story.

So, learn the myths and the facts below.

The bottom line: while pomegranates help your skin glow, they alone won’t transform your skin. Instead, a healthy diet and lifestyle is your best route to glowing skin.

Side Effects

Adverse reactions to this fruit are rare but may include redness, itchy skin, and skin irritation. So check with your doctor before adding the fruit to your skincare routine.

    1. Thank you! I’m glad you liked the lip scrub. I use that scrub and a cocoa sugar lip scrub once per week, and it really helps.

  1. Ok so let’s say I wanted to use the lip scrub-not like I’m going to or anything-but let’s just say hypothetically I was. Could I use olive oil if I didn’t have the pomegranite oil? Just sayin

    1. Lip scrubs are for everyone, so there is nothing wrong with trying it yourself! But yes, if you do use the lip scrub, you can use olive oil or coconut oil instead. Thanks for stopping by, though. Feel free to ask any other questions you have.
