With an exceptionally rich source of Vitamin C, lemons are undoubtedly one of Mother
Nature’s most effective natural skin bleaching ingredients. But, did you know that
ruby red pomegranate arils are also blessed with naturally strong skin lighteningand whitening compounds that leave your face beautifully luminous with a irresistible
so-in-love rosy glow?
The pomegranate fruit not only brightens your plate during fall and winter months,
but it is also among the very best skin-nourishing fruits to use when it comes to
homemade wrinkle-stopping, skin-rejuvenating face masks for mature skin that tends
to be dry and lackluster. And here’s why...
Like lemons, pomegranates are loaded to the brim with a cornucopia of powerful antioxidants,
Vitamins A, C and E, and zinc, all of which are essential for good skin.
Antioxidants scavenge free radicals caused by various factors like sun damage, environmental
pollution and cigarette smoking that can result in your skin showing the telltale
signs of aging – unsightly crevices on forehead, around the eyes and lips, bothersome
saggy facial skin and age spots.
Vitamins A, C and E promote healthy skin growth by speeding cell renewal and will
also help improve skin radiance to bring you skin that feels like brand new.
As an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent, zinc greatly benefits adults afflicted
with acne-prone skin. Zinc helps lower sebum production that can lead to spots, thereby
reducing the severity of acne while controlling future acne breakouts.
Another skin-beautifying benefit of pomegranate in skincare is, the pomegranate juice
contains anthocyanins (give the fruit its color), which are polyphenol antioxidants
that have been shown to help strengthen blood vessel walls and improve peripheral
circulation. Hence, drinking pomegranate juice regularly can help stop varicose veins
and spider veins from developing.
Pomegranate has been widely used in a variety of high end prestige cosmetics and
skin care products such as Murad’s pomegranate range – cleanser, moisturizer and
exfoliating mask – to fight wrinkles, restore moisture and revitalize aging skin.
They cost a small fortune so if you are don’t want to make a huge financial splurge,
try out these totally affordable homemade pomegranate skin whitening face masks that

week as a part of your beauty regime, pomegranate facials will help naturally remove
