Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2014 -- Looking similar to an apple on the outside, but inside appearing more like a seedy tomato, the pomegranate is a versatile fruit. This versatility makes it a powerful ally in improving overall wellness in the body while tasting sweet and savory all at once. The skin is the largest organ in the body, and is also the most exposed, but by consuming pomegranates or using pomegranate derived products, we can protect and improve the condition of our skin through this fruits numerous benefits.
Pomegranates are loaded with vitamin C and this essential nutrient is excellent for the skin. Applying vitamin C topically can decrease dryness and roughness, and pomegranate oil is an excellent way to keep the skin moist and smooth during dry months. In addition to smoothing skin, antioxidants in the fruit can help reduce redness and inflammation from acne breakouts, leaving one with a more glowing appearance.
Not only can antioxidants reduce inflammation from breakouts, but those same nutrients can assist in protecting the skin from UV rays and pollution. This protection happens at a cellular level, and pomegranate derived products have been found to actually assist in repairing DNA damage from sun rays.
In addition to protection and reducing inflammation, pomegranates are also full of an antioxidant that specifically helps reduce collagen breakdown. Collagen is what keeps the skin soft and supple, and reducing this breakdown will decrease the tired appearance our faces often get, and can also reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that happen as we age.
All of these vitamins and antioxidants have benefits for the body as well, but in the focus to improve heart health or fitness levels, we often neglect our skin. Using the powerful ingredients in the pomegranate can assist in reducing this neglect, and provide other health benefits at the same time.
