Pomegranate for skin is a rich source of vitamin C, which research has proven is effective in treating dull and dry skin. When applied topically on a regular basis, it can reduce skin roughness. Also, around 82 percent of pomegranate’s volume weight is water and thereby it’s effective in keeping you hydrated.
Being rich in antioxidants, pomegranates neutralise the effect of free radicals in our body. The anti-ageing plant compounds in the fruit also help in stimulating keratinocyte cells (skin cells) and help in cellular regeneration thereby keeping wrinkles and sagging skin at bay.
According to research conducted by the Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, pomegranate can inhibit the development of obesity. It is also high in fibre and low in calories, which means it can keep you full for longer. If you are trying to lose weight, include a cup of pomegranate in your diet every day.
