November Beauty Recipe: Pomegranate Clay Mask

Pomegranate benefits and facts taken from Women’s Health Info Lab: Pomegranate

Why Pomegranate?

  • Stimulates keratinocytes, which are responsible for strengthening and regenerating skin cells
  • Inhibits enzymes that break down collagen, extends the life of fibroblasts
  • Full of antioxidants, as well as gallic and ellagic acid, protects from sun damage
  • Anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and punicalagin increase microcirculation, promoting anti-aging
  • Polyphenol antioxidants are an anti-inflammatory agent
  • The oil found in pomegranate seeds contain punicic acid which is an omega-5 fatty acid and serves as an all-natural moisturizer

Why Clay?

  • Removes toxins and excess oil, especially when mixed with apple cider vinegar and pomegranate juice
  • All-natural exfoliant
  • Versatile for a range of skin types, especially beneficial for oily or combination skin

Since this mask is clay, you’ll need a tool for removal; rinsing alone won’t work. Keep it natural with the Intrinsics Cellulose Sponge! These specially-formulated sponges are made from professional grade cellulose, giving them the perfect grip for removal and the right amount of softness for all skin types.
