I was waiting for my mom to finish with her hair wash and I was randomly going through the magazines there and I happened to read an article on pomegranate for skin! I love the fruit a lott...and I was really amazed with the kind of skin benefits it has.

Pomegranate are packed with potassium, Vitamin C and Antioxidants. Pomegranate helps to boost cell renewal & provides sun protection. Pomegranate seed oil is known to have soothing effects on the skin. It treats hyper pigmentation and has anti-aging properties which improves skin texture making skin firm, supple and smooth.

To boost cell renewal & for dark spots:

Normal to oily skin: Mix pomegranate juice and lime juices in equal quantity. Apply the mix on face and leave it for about 15-20 mins and then wash it off with warm water.
Normal to dry skin: Mix pomegranate juice, lime juice and aloe vera gel in equal quantities. Apply the mix on face and leave it for about 15-20 mins and then wash off with warm water.

As a toner:
Soak a green tea bag in hot water for 15 mins. Let it cool, then add equal parts of pomegranate juice & lime juice to it. Apply this with a cotton pad and leave it for 15 mins and wash it off.

For Exfoliation:
Mix 2 tsp of ground pomegranate seeds, ½ tsp honey, ½ tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp yoghurt. Apply the mix on the face and rub gently in circular motion and wash it off.
Do not use this on active acne prone skin.
