The juicy and luscious pomegranate isn’t just a wonder fruit for your tummy but also a great ingredient for skin care. Loaded with antioxidants, it is made up of a rich 17% of Vitamin C, along with 5% of Vitamin B6 and 3% of Magnesium.
Vitamin C is the well-known, proven, anti-aging ingredient and helps achieve a smooth, even and glowing skin tone. It is a hydration booster for your skin and personal care. Not just that, the antioxidant properties make it an excellent anti aging ingredient by preventing free radical damage to the skin from UV exposure.
Vitamin B6, on the other hand, is essential for the repair and rejuvenation of the skin, helping prevent dry and chapped skin, acting as a preventive measure for acne by maintaining the hormonal levels, and promoting healthy and shiny hair growth by accelerating repair. It also boosts collagen production, which leads to supple, younger looking skin. Circulation also improves, improving cell turnover and repair of the skin.
Magnesium acts as an armour for the skin by protecting it from external damage, helping avoid wrinkles, like a personal sunscreen agent, preventing damage from UV rays and helping soothe sunburns. In haircare products, it brings back luster to hair; this superfruit can be used in a variety of products!
Coming back to the seeded snack - pomegranates are a luscious, nutritious treat for your skin and hair. This superfood also helps control the levels of testosterone in the body, and hence allows for the skin to heal better from breakouts. At Omeo, we believe in promoting natural, safe and effective ingredients, and incorporate them in all our products. The hydration factor given by the omega fatty acids make skin soft and dewy.
Pomegranate is easy to imbibe as a part of your skin routine- its juice can work as a delicious toner, the seeds of the natural exfoliator remove dead skin - just blend the seeds with rose water and gently rub on the face in circular motions. The fruit pulp blends easily with bentonite or aztec clay, giving you a face mask that can even tackle hyperpigmentation.
