The pomegranate fruit has the anti-microbial property which helps to fight against infection and anti-inflammatory property that soothes and heals the inflamed skin.

Pomegranate is a well known anti-ageing fruit. The juice of this fruit can reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Pomegranate has the ability to regenerate cells of our skin. Drinking pomegranate juice regularly can slow down the ageing process. This fruit also has the ability to prevent the formation of hyperpigmentation which results in serious dark spots on the skin. This fruit can lengthen the life period of fibroblasts that help in the formation of collagen and elastin. As you know collagen and elastin are responsible for your skin elasticity and much more. So by extending the life period of fibroblasts, pomegranates are helping to keep your skin plump, youthful and without wrinkles.

  • Treatment of Acne

Pomegranate juice is a great remedy for acne as it reduces inflammation. By applying directly on the pimple, you can reduce the inflammation. It can also prevent the occurrence of acne as the rich vitamin C controls the production of oily sebum that causes acne. As you know, acne or a pimple generally stem from digestive problems. Drinking Pomegranate juice can keep a healthy digestive system.

  • Protects against Sun damages and heals wounds

Drinking Pomegranate juice can cure skin injuries as it can fasten the repairing of damages. As we have mentioned pomegranates contain a high amount of antioxidants which helps your skin in many ways. One of the crucial function of antioxidants is to protect the skin against free radical damages and aid in the rejuvenation of skin cells. This function eventually helps to heal wounds, protect against skin cancer, soothe sunburns and eliminate the signs of damaged skin due to sun exposure.

  • Dry Skin

If you apply freshly juiced pomegranate juice on your skin, you will see the juice hydrates your skin deeply. The  Pomegranate juice is rich in punicic acid which is as omega 3 fatty acid, and this acid replenishes your dry skin by trapping and sealing in the moisture. This small molecule penetrates into the skin and provides hydration and thus treats the dry skin.  benefits for skin also include that it is very good for people who have dry skin. When we drink pomegranate juice, it penetrates deeply into the skin and provides a good amount of hydration and moisture to the skin. Drinking the juice or applying the juice on the skin will help with eradication dryness of the skin.

For Hair:

Now you know pomegranate juice is really good for your skin and not to mention for your health. So it would not come to as a surprise to know that this fruit is an excellent ingredient for your hair care as well. Let’s see what drinking pomegranate juice will do for our hair.

  • Drinking pomegranate juice will make your hair follicles strong thus preventing hair fall.
  • This fruit contains punicic acid which is a fatty acid that helps in preventing hair loss. Punicic acid makes hair strong, thick and healthy.
  • Punicic acid increases blood circulation to the scalp which stimulates hair growth

I am trying to drink pomegranate juice every day. You can buy it from a supermarket or better make it at home. All you need is pomegranate fruit and a juicer machine. Homemade juice is far better than the bought ones from a supermarket.

So, do you guys drink pomegranate juice? Or do you use it for skin care? Let me know.
