Happy pomegranate month, beauty lovers! Yes November is the month to celebrate the ruby red seed bearing fruit, which is a native food cultivated all over the world; from the Middle East to California.
As well as its biblical symbolism, pomegranates are also revered in modern times for their health boosting properties. Hailed as a superfruit, pomegranates’ jewel-like seeds are bursting with antioxidants and vitamins, and have been known to be effective against heart disease, high blood pressure, inflammation and some cancers, including prostate cancer.
As well as sprinkling the seeds over porridge, salads and desserts, you can also find the goodness of pomegranate in beauty products.
AA Skincare’s new Frankincense & Rose face toner has got us feeling all Christmassy, and the inclusion of vitamin and anti-oxidant rich pomegranate extract has made us even more excited. Skin will feel boosted, refreshed and revived if this lovely little toner is used daily.
Luxury skincare brand Murad (murad.co.uk) has turned to pomegranate seed extract for its Skin Smoothing Polish. As part of the company’s Exfoliating Collection, the polish removes impurities and relieves blocked pores, making skin look brighter.
In shower products have been given a pomegranate makeover courtesy of Original Source and its limited edition Hibiscus and Pomegranate Tea Shower Gel. Awaken your senses morning or night with this vibrant fruity fragrance.
And finally, no one quite does pomegranate elegance like Jo Malone, whose Pomegranate Noir scent is one of the beauty brand’s most popular. Whether you chose the cologne, body creme or bath oil, the rich smell will add instant luxury to your day. The fragrance was even found to be one of the most popular scents across the U.K. from a perfume poll commissioned by Heathrow Airport. It’s also available in candle and diffuser form, meaning your house can smell as divine as you do.
