Pomegranate Seed Oil: A Beneficial Ingredient for Your Homemade Creams, Lotions, and Serums May 08 2013 2 Comments

  

While pomegranates are widely hailed by health practitioners, pomegranate seed oil is still relatively obscure to the general public.  Pomegranate seed oil is naturally high in antioxidants as well as fatty acids, including the mighty punicic acid, to help combat aging.  The oil is of medium weight, which makes it especially ideal for those with very dry skin.  People with oily and combination complexions can also benefit from pomegranate seed oil by diluting it with lighter oils such as rosehip seed oil, apricot kernel oil, and grapeseed oil.  Figuring out the proper ratio of pomegranate seed oil in your homemade beauty product recipes requires some experimenting depending on your skin type.  The drier your skin, the higher the pomegranate seed oil ratio your beauty concoction will require.  Try incorporating this nutrient-rich natural beauty oil into your homemade serum recipes for an anti-aging boost.
