One of the oldest known fruits, pomegranate has only recently had a resurgence in popularity. Known all the way back in ancient times for its medicinal properties, it was used to treat everything from diabetes to hypertension, as well as external skin diseases. In modern times, scientists and nutritionists have praised the ruby-red fruit for its extremely high antioxidant level. It can be found in everything from ice cream to iced tea. And some studies show that pomegranate juice can effectively reduce your risk of heart disease. But while the decadent fruit is tasty to eat and drink, it’s also a star ingredient in skincare. 

Pomegranate oil is richer in antioxidants than green tea or red wine, making it one of nature’s more perfect skincare ingredients. Wonderful for anti-aging, it helps promote cell regeneration while repairing skin damage. Its anti-inflammatory properties also help soothe irritated skin. Primavera’s anti-aging Natural Balance collection contains an organic synthesis of ingredients called the Re-Cell Complex. Along with Grape Seed and Rose oil (both of which you’re probably more familiar with), the third powerful ingredient in the complex is Pomegranate Seed oil. And while I recommend all of the products in the line, here are a few of my favorites:

NEW Intensive Revitalizing Serum
This concentrated serum, new to the Natural Balance line, is simply an amazing product. It’s satiny-smooth and quickly soaks into skin to help protect, hydrate, firm and brighten. Along with the Pomegranate Seed oil-rich Re-Cell Complex, the serum is also packed with soothing, skin-brightening Licorice extract and cell-boosting silver tip White Tea and Madonna Lily. Immediately skin is lifted and left with a radiant glow. And over time, bothersome lines and wrinkles are softened and skin tone is more balanced and even.

Nourishing Face Cream
If you’re looking for a plant extract-based daily moisturizer that helps wipe away your skin’s past sins, while preventing future damage, look no further. This nutrient-packed, emollient-rich moisturizer promotes a healthy, youthful appearance and supplements skin’s own moisture using the Re-Cell Complex along with organic Olive and Avocado oils. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced (up to 27%), and skin is left satiny smooth, radiant and healthy-looking.

Regenerating Mask
Treat your skin to this nourishing mask that hydrates, firms and protects mature skin. It contains Natural Balance’s special Re-Cell Complex along with powerful tomato-derived antioxidants, free radical-repelling Rooibos Extract and nutrient-rich Avocado oil and Shea butter. Lost moisture is replenished while skin is protected against future skin damage for a soft, supple glow.

Ultra-Rich Energizing Seed Oil Capsules

Primavera’s capsules all have a very dedicated following. This particular blend contains a concentrated amount (more than 60%) of organic seed oils, making them one of the most powerful ways to moisturize dry, mature skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed as skin benefits from an immediate moisture boost. That skin-quenching hydration lasts all day as moisture is continuously released. You’ll notice immediately how healthy, toned, velvety-soft and glowing your skin has become.
