12 Luscious Skincare Products Infused With The Power Of Pomegranate


Pomegranate with its juicy, ruby red arils is not only a delicious fruit but has been known for centuries for its many health and skincare benefits. From being a blood purifier and managing heart problems, to preventing sun-related skin damage and even being considered an aphrodisiac, there’s little that this mighty fruit can’t do. It might as well wear a cape!

We spoke to Dr Meghna Gupta, founder & dermatologist, Delhi Skin Centre about how this phytonutrient-rich botanical can help when it comes to skincare. She says, “Pomegranate is a powerful antioxidant and is rich in polyphenols. It thus, helps in preventing sun damage, repairs and protects the skin, improves hydration, and also revitalizes and regenerates the skin making it feel and appear healthy.” Whoa! See what we mean about that cape? 

Let’s dive into each of these benefits…

Benefits Of Pomegranate In Skincare

UV Protection: While it cannot replace sunscreen, clinical studies have shown that pomegranate has the ability to enhance UV protection in the skin, where skin cells are better equipped to deal with harmful UV rays and their effects.

Anti-ageing: It’s not for nothing that pomegranates have been called a superfood. In skincare, it can help thwart premature ageing caused by sun damage – so bye-bye fine lines, age spots, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. 

Antioxidant-rich: It contains antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and tannins, which work against free radical damage, thereby slowing the signs of ageing. It also stimulates skin cells that help in cell regeneration.

Healthier looking skin: Pomegranate extracts help boost elasticity in the skin by aiding in collagen and elastin production, which means smoother, firmer skin. Moreover, pomegranate seed oil contains a unique compound called punicic acid which can help to improve skin elasticity and even out skin tone.

Excellent hydration: Extracts from this fruit and its seeds work well to moisturise the skin. Its small molecular structure enables it to penetrate deeply into the skin, making it effective for treating dry skin.

Dr Meghna points out, “Pomegranate extracts in skincare work well with ceramides, hyaluronic acid, peptides and vitamin E to name a few.” She adds that while it is suitable for all skin types, it could, in some cases, cause irritation in sensitive skin and acne-prone skin types. But nothing that a simple patch test can’t rule out.
