3 Best Skin Whitening Pomegranate Facial Recipes


By Tiffany Moore

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 lightening and 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 are super easy to make.


These gentle pomegranate face packs can be prepared in less than five minutes and require only simple ingredients that are found in your kitchen. If applied once a week as a part of your beauty regime, pomegranate facials will help naturally remove dark spots and freckles, heal acne-damaged skin and not to mention, softens the appearance of fines lines and wrinkles as well.
