The Benefits of Pomegranate Oil for Aging Skin



Pomegranates may not be the most popular fruit in the world, but it is definitely one of the most amazing!  Why?  Because with a pomegranate, it’s waste not want not – every part of the fruit can be used in some way. 

And this is completely besides the fruit itself, which is delicious on it’s own. Today we want to talk about some of it’s other more practical uses that you may not be aware of.

For instance, if you know anything about pomegranates, you know that they have seeds. And you probably have seen these seeds being used for making martinis, or being snacked upon. 

Well, the best thing we think there is about pomegranate seeds is the oil inside of them, which is extremely useful and precious. 

Once the oil is extracted from the pomegranate, it can be used for natural anti-aging remedies, which is what we’ll be discussing today. 

If you don’t believe this or haven’t heard of it before, read on, because you’re going to love what pomegranate oil can do for your anti-aging skin care routine!

Skin Hydration

Judging from the size of your average pomegranate, you might have some notion of just how much water is contained within it. 

The seeds are no exception, as they are packed with hydrating qualities.  This is because the oil comes from the seeds, which grants it the power to hydrate you as well. 

As we are aging, our skin can become less hydrating, which is one of the main factors in us appearing more tired, and ultimately more “old” looking. 

More hydration means healthier skin, and that’s just a win for everyone who chooses to hydrate.  If we can achieve a better pH balance for our skin, it will appear more nourished and healthier. 

If you have dry skin, this is a great solution – hydrate, with the help of pomegranate oil.

Prevention of Wrinkles

As we get older, more lines appear.  This is a given. 

However, with the arrival of more wrinkles, we have the opportunity to, while we can’t say eliminate them, we can say slow them down because that’s exactly what we want to do here. 

Pomegranate oil is your best friend in this department. To keep your face looking vibrant and without wrinkles, using the hydrating properties of the pomegranate oil, we can achieve this. 

One way or another, if you want nicer skin, moisturizing is one great way to do it. Wrinkles appear because of dryness, for one thing, and so we can counteract that by using this oil to moisturize.

Keeping Skin Tight and Stimulating Blood Flow

Because of the combination of both punicic acid and fatty acids in the pomegranate oil, you can help keep your skin tight and retaining much of its elasticity through the years. 

This will also help to lessen things like irritations and things of that sort that appear on your skin. 

Toxic skin conditions (acne, pimples) can be assisted in clearing up this way as well, because although it is oil, pomegranate oil is healthy oil vs other types of “bad” oils (ie. found in fried foods). 

One of the reasons that skin gets saggy is a lack of blood circulation, and pomegranate oil helps to promote blood circulation so that’s certainly a plus as well.

Stronger Skin

It’s one thing to have your skin be soft and supple, by preserving the moisture in your skin, but it’s another thing to promote the actual strength of your skin, which pomegranate oil also does. 

Overall skin health is increased because of both the anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties of this oil, which, as we just mentioned, can fight toxic elements, leading to better, stronger, and more healthy skin. 

In addition, pomegranate oil helps to generate keratinocyte, which is an agent that helps to renew the skin by growing more new epidermal cells. 

As your skin ages, it loses these cells, but luckily they can be replenished via the oil, helping us to have strong skin which can withstand all the various stresses of life.

Sun Protection

So far, we’ve provided lots of reasons why pomegranate oil is great for your skin, but here’s one more. 

In addition to everything else, this type of oil has it’s fair share of antioxidant properties, which are known to combat the sun’s rays. 

The sun’s rays, if we are exposed too long, we know can damage our skin and make it look less vibrant. 

It’s not a complete replacement for sunscreen (it’s often found in sunscreen), of course, but applying it and going out in the sun can lead to better results, including a glow from your own skin you might not see that often.


When it comes to anti-aging remedies, the health and cosmetics industry has fully acknowledged that pomegranate oil can lead to amazing benefits when it comes to a skin care regimen. 

This is why many products these days , such as moisturizers, sunscreens, lotions, and so on, contain some amount of pomegranate oil as a core ingredient. 

Also, if you take part in aromatherapy, you will also gain the benefits of pomegranate oil, as it is a natural remedy. 

Finally, if you are looking for great natural anti-aging solutions, we definitely recommend looking into pomegranate oil, as the results can be quite wondrous!
