Pomegranates for skin & hair health
Pomegranates are a bit of work, but eating these pretty little gems is so worth the effort. These ruby colored seeds aren't just beautiful and tasty, did you know that they are also good for your skin and hair?
Being rich in Vitamin C and other antioxidants, like oroanthocyanidins and falvonoids, pomegranates can help delay the signs of aging. These antioxidants also fight skin inflammation and treat acne breakouts and dark spots. They also naturally brighten the skin and fight sun damage.
Eating pomegranate seeds can help strengthen the hair follicles. The seeds, and especially the seed oil, contain punicic acid- an ingredient that makes the hair strong. It is also known to improve circulation to the scalp and stimulate hair growth.
