This remedy is therefore ideal to nourish mature, dry or irritated skin, after waxing or shaving, but also cracked and stressed skin due to the action of external agents such as wind, sun, temperature changes. Pomegranate seed oil has a strong antioxidant power to counteract the aging processes and has regenerating and firming properties, it gives elasticity and helps reduce and fight wrinkles.

Pomegranate seed oil also protects the skin from sun damage, in fact, according to a scientific study published in 2009 in the journal Experimental Dermatology by an American team (Afaq et al, Exp Dermatol, 2009), it was found that pomegranate oil, when applied to the skin, has the ability to inhibit damages to DNA and proteins induced by UVB rays, while another study has observed how pomegranate seed oil helps protect the skin from tumors (Hora et al, J Med Food, 2003). You can add a few drops to a teaspoon of your usual cream or you can put it in the preparation of your diy face cream, if you like to create your own cosmetics, in this case you can find some interesting advice in the Video blog section.
