Pomegranate Power!

Looking after your body has never been more important, and the conversation that surrounds the concept of ‘Super Foods’ is never ending, and constantly talked about in the press, amongst friends and family, and online. One fruit that we believe has magical powers and therefore should be considered a super food is pomegranate. Pomegranate’s are the tasty colorful fruit used for eating, cooking, in smoothies and alcoholic beverages. But did you know that it is actually very good for your skin?

They are a powerful antioxidant for one! One of the key measures for tackling aging of skin is through rendering better skin nutrition. As pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, they not only nourish the skin, but also prevent damage caused due to free radicals.

Another benefit is that it helps restore your skin’s cells. In addition to being effective anti-inflammatory and high in essential fatty acids, pomegranate possesses potent anti-aging compounds, which helps in stimulating keratinocyte cells (skin cells) thereby aiding cellular regeneration.

Did you know that pomegranate’s possess 48% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C?! Which is another reason why it is so good for your skin as Vitamin C plays a key role in formation of collagen (skin is made up of collagen and elastic fibers), thus enabling various proteins responsible for making healthy and stronger skin.

And lastly, pomegranate juice not only penetrates deeply into the skin, but also moisturizes the skin with micronutrients and phytochemicals, and the crushed seeds of pomegranate acts as an excellent natural aid for exfoliating dead cells present on skin, therefore making pomegranate’s an excellent moisturizer!

EXTRASHADE’s Daily Defense Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion contains pomegranate in it – meaning your skin not only gets SPF 30, but also helps repair damaged skin and soothes irritated skin. It may also stimulate production of collagen and elastin.
