This sea­sonal fa­vorite is the latest won­der in­gre­di­ent in anti- ag­ing skin care.

Pome­gran­ate is the latest won­der in­gre­di­ent in an­ti­ag­ing skin care. This col­or­ful fruit has three times more an­tiox­i­dants than green tea and red wine, which helps neu­tral­ize the free rad­i­cals that cause skin dam­age and vis­i­ble signs of ag­ing.

Pome­gran­ate was found to have more polyphe­nols than “su­per­foods” açai or white tea. Polyphe­nols are a nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring fam­ily of plant chem­i­cals that func­tion as an­tiox­i­dants in the body, help­ing re­duce the risks of can­cer and car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease and the eff ects of ag­ing on the skin.

Pomegranat­es are packed with vi­ta­mins C and E, which slow the signs of ag­ing by pre­vent­ing the break­down of col­la­gen and aid the growth of fi brob­lasts, the cells that pro­duce elastin and col­la­gen. They’re also rich in zinc, a min­eral that reg­u­lates the growth of basal cells, which de­velop into ma­ture skin tis­sue and as­sist in wound heal­ing. Plus, pomegranat­es con­tain cop­per, which is needed to pro­duce melanin, a pig­ment re­spon­si­ble for the color of skin, eyes, and hair that also pro­vides nat­u­ral sun pro­tec­tion.

Pomegranat­es have three times the an­tiox­i­dant power of green tea and red wine.
