Pomegranates Used As Skin Care

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about pomegranates. As I was searching for more information about the jewel of autumn, I learned that pomegranate juice can be excellent for skin care. It is said that using pomegranates on the skin can prevent skin cancer from forming as well as reduce the signs of aging.  So with these benefits in mind, I decided to try for myself.

For almost 2 weeks I've been ending my nightly cleansing ritual by applying pomegranate juice to my face. I just soaked a cotton round with the juice and applied. The first time that I applied the juice it was sticky and my face seemed a bit more pink so I rinsed it off after 20 minutes or so. On the second night that I applied the juice, I fell asleep before I could rinse it off. When I woke I didn't feel sticky at all since my face had plenty of time to absorb the juice. So, on the third night I decided that I wouldn't wash my face again until the morning in order for the juice to be fully absorbed by my skin once again. I have to say that the appearance of my skin has improved. My husband has even noticed the difference.

What's the difference?
 Well, my skin appears more radiant and firm. The crows feet that are forming around my eyes seem less dramatic and my skin feels much softer. I'm definitely impressed and will continue this ritual as long as pomegranates are available.

A Breakdown of the Steps:
- I picked one pomegranate from a tree and dug out my hand juicer. It's a lot like this one:

-I cut  the pomegranate in half and squeezed about 1/4 cup from it. It was probably a little less that 1/4 cup, I'm estimating.

-Finally, I simply poured a little juice on a cotton round and  applied it liberally to my face. That's it!

I stored the remainder of the  juice in the refrigerator to keep it fresh. Applying the cold juice to my face was refreshing! This amount of juice that I squeezed lasted me for nearly 2 weeks. So, if you want to add it to your skin care regimen I highly recommend it. It's so incredibly simple!

**If you do try feel free to let me know, I'm interested in hearing your results!**

    1. really it does wonders to your face

  4. i'm convinced!
    the amount you say you use is minimal, so even though i buy my pomegranates, i won't be using much, is that correct?

  5. @thalassamov-
    Kalimera! Thanks for the great smiles, they're contagious :)
    I think that I may have to try your recipe for a mask using yogurt. I just have to make sure that I don't fall asleep when using it because it could get messy.:)

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    @ Phivos-

    Good morning!! I hope that you use your pomegranates to their fullest as well! Thanks for always being kind and my greatest supporter!

    Have a wonderful weekend!!
    Hugs from all of us:)

    @ Maria-
    It is minimal. I use on dab of juice on the cotton-The juice absorbed by the cotton is enough for one application.So no, you really won't be using much because a little goes a long way! Let me know how you like it.

    Have a great weekend...:)

  6. Never thought of such a use. usually i eat them instantly or mix them with my salad

  7. Sounds very interesting, although I hate putting stuff on my face :)

  8. @ tobias-
    I really didn't consider using them for anything other than food myself. We love eating pomegranates fresh & in salads as well, they're wonderful!

    Enjoy your weekend~~

    @ Ivy-
    I agree, this sounded very interesting to me so I had try it. I can see how you don't like putting stuff on your face, it was rather sticky!

    Have a beautiful weekend!

  9. Cheryl, Anytime you can actually see results is a welcome surprise! I'd be ashamed to confess how much I have spent on an tiny little pot of eye cream. The pomegranate's seeds are so beautiful and glossy, especially in the first photo, they remind me of Salmon roe caviar.
    Have a super weekend. BTW, will you be cooking a Thanksgiving feast next week?

  10. Hi Biddy!

    Yes, anytime that you can see results it's promising! I'm impressed.

    I will be cooking dinner. It's a regular week day so it will just be the 5 of us...after 6pm!! So, we'll sleep well for sure:)
    and HOPEFULLY I'll get my new dishwasher before then!!!!!

    So, are you in search of caviar?


    Have a beautiful Sunday!
