Pomegranate: Superfood For Your Hair & Skin

The pomegranate fruit has long been prized for its excellent antioxidant properties. Due to its higher than average level of antioxidants and nutritional content, the pomegranate is regarded as a ‘superfruit’. Rather impressive for a small little red fruit that does not look visually appealing, eh?

 

Benefits For Your Hair

Okay, so pomegranates are not going to miraculously give you a full head of hair, if you already have thinning hair or suffer from hair loss. But as pomegranates contain lots of nutrients, they can benefit your hair in ways like:

Being as Strong as ‘The Rock’

The pomegranate juice can strengthen hair follicles, and improve blood circulation and blood flow at the scalp. When the scalp is stimulated, it encourages hair growth.

No More Frizzy Hair

When you sit at the hair salon having your hair treatment done, check in with your stylist and ask if the hair oil they are using contains pomegranate oil. Pomegranate oil detangles your hair and moisturises the hair shaft, giving your hair a healthy and shiny boost.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

Pomegranates are rich in essential fatty acids and punicic acid that will strengthen your lacklustre hair and give it a natural shine.

Refreshing Homemade Pomegranate Hair Mask

Ingredients you will need include: Four tablespoons of lemon juice and one cup of pomegranate. Grind one cup of pomegranate (that includes the peel and seeds) with the lemon juice and make it into a thick paste. Apply the thick paste on your hair, let it work its magic for 20 minutes and wash it off your hair, as usual.

Cleansing Homemade Pomegranate Hair Mask

Ingredients you will need include: Four tablespoons of yogurt and one cup of pomegranate. Grind one cup of pomegranate (that includes the peel and seeds) with the yogurt and make it into a thick paste. Apply the thick paste on your hair, let it work its magic for 20 minutes and wash it off your hair, as per your usual routine.

 

Benefits For Your Skin

Pomegranates are also rich in vitamin C, on top of the other antioxidant properties, which can help in anti-aging, fighting skin inflammation, treating acne breakouts and dark spots and brightening the skin.

Grow & Renew

Pomegranates work to protect your skin cells on the surface and also regenerate the skin cells in the deeper layers. If you apply skincare products that have pomegranate ingredients topically, it will stimulate the cells on the outer layer of the skin, reversing skin damage and revealing a more youthful complexion.

Smoother & Firmer Skin

Pomegranates prevent enzymes that break down collagen and extend the life of fibroblasts, so that the skin can maintain its elasticity.

Fun in the Sun with Pomegranate

Containing gallic and ellagic acid, pomegranates can fight off sun damage, skin cancer and photoaging symptoms, and relieve sunburn.

Look Younger with Pomegranates

Pomegranates’ antioxidants help to fight and repair free-radical sun damage, hyperpigmentation and age spots. These ingredients — anthocyanins, ellagic acid and punicalagin — help to renew skin cells and prevent and smooth out wrinkles, so you will look younger than your real age.

‘Boing-Boing’ Skin

Want your skin to look plumped and flushed? Use pomegranate oil, as it contains punicic acid that locks in moisture. The molecular structure of pomegranates enables the punicic acid to penetrate deeply into the skin, which is very effective for dry skin types. Pomegranates also contain omega-5 fatty acid that hydrates skin and prevents moisture loss.
