Your skin is a window into the health of your entire body. Healthy skin indicates a healthy body. Unhealthy, prematurely wrinkled, or rash covered skin might signal an underlying factor such as kidney infection or an allergic reaction to food. Taking care of your body with diet and exercise will help your skin to look vibrant and healthy. Alternatively, taking care of your skin from the outside in, will help the health of your entire body. Since your skin absorbs what you put in it, being the largest organ in your body, you can either give nutrients to your skin, that absorb into your body, or you can put harmful chemicals on your skin, which can stress out your liver, kidneys and endocrine system. This is why at SOCO Botanicals we make nutrient-rich skin care that is 100% nontoxic, even our preservatives.
What is Pomegranate?
Pomegranate grows as a shrub with flowers and fruit which all have significant health benefits. Pomegranate originated from the Middle East before being exported to other parts of the world. Pomegranate is high in nutrition, both as a food and as a topical skincare application.
Overall Health Benefits of Pomegranate
Some of the pomegranate health benefits include:
- Pomegranate fruit is rich in nutrients, including vitamin C, folic acid, and potassium. All these nutrients are essential for the healthy development and functioning of your body and immune system.
- Pomegranate assists with digestion, since it is rich in fiber. Taking pomegranate can help with digestive or stomach complications.
- Pomegranate has been helpful in reducing blood pressure and hypertension.
- Pomegranates have strong antibacterial properties, which help fight diseases caused by microorganisms such as fungal infections.
- Pomegranates are also anti-inflammatory, which can assist patients suffering conditions such as arthritis. With the reduction in swelling comes pain relief, therefore, adding a bonus for pomegranate benefits.
Pomegranate Benefits for Skin
Pomegranate oil is one of the most important ingredients in skincare. Pomegranate contains high amounts of ellagic acid which in clinical studies has shown to reduce the incidence of skin cancer and sunspots. Pomegranate oil is helpful in reducing signs of premature aging and wrinkles, helping your skin to look younger. Applying pomegranate oil on your skin also keeps you protected from unhealthy UV rays that cause skin cancer and other skin damage.
Anti-aging and Cell Regeneration
Pomegranates are rich in Vitamin C, which is used by the skin for regenerating the cells. Using pomegranate oil on your skin helps stimulate the healing of damaged skin, and reducing skin spots caused by injury and age. Pomegranates also help the dermal cells stay hydrated and supple, giving your skin a fuller look.
Treats Acne and Breakouts
Anti-inflammatory pomegranate helps to reduce inflammation in your skin affected by acne and breakouts and neutralizes them. Furthermore, antioxidants present in pomegranates fight the free radicals in the cell, which cause damage.
Protects from Sun Damage
Studies show that pomegranates have high amounts of ellagic acid which can help to reverse sun damage. This means if you happen to get a sunburn, applying pomegranate oil over the burn will help in healing the damage.
