Winter skin-care wonder: Pomegranate


pomegranate for skinIt’s not the latest superfruit to leap from the produce aisle to the beauty one. But pomegranate, known as a restorative antioxidant with serious skin-care prowess, is a staple in new nighttime products intended for winter-weary skin.

That makes sense, since while you’re sleeping, your body is working overtime, firing up and circulating growth hormones, and focusing on repair—skin included. The omega-5 fatty acids and antioxidants from ellagic acid in pomegranate lock in moisture and help correct environmental damage, by soothing your dry, blotchy, chapped, and uncomfortably tight skin.
