Pomegranates are key to super skin

Get Super Skin With This Superfood

Pomegranates are known for their healthy nutritional benefits. They can help prevent cancer, heart disease, and a host of other diseases.

It turns out pomegranate can create miracles for your skin's appearance and its health. You can thank the powerful antioxidants including tannins, anthocyanins, punicalagin, and ellagic acid.

Every minute of the day your skin is oxidizing just like what happens when you cut an apple and leave it out in the air. You can prevent oxidative stress that causes wrinkling, aging, thinning, and skin cancer. For beautiful skin that makes you look younger than the rest of the women and men in your age group, look for pomegranate lotions, balms, and body butters.

Studies prove that pomegranate will help you slow skin aging. In the February 2006 Journal of Ethnopharmacology, a University of Michigan study proved that pomegranate seed oil stimulates the growth of keratinocytes. This is important if you are interested in looking years younger because keratinocytes promote skin regeneration and slow down thinning.

Now you don't have to worry about the sun chewing up the collagen and elastin of your skin. In another 2006 study in the March issue of Photochemistry and Photobiology, it was revealed that pomegranate fruit extract can prevent damage from UVA radiation.

Pomegranates also provide a retinoid-like effect but without the irritation.
