6 oils for wrinkles that science shows work....

Pomegranate Seed Oil: 

Pomegranates are associated with anti-aging, and the most powerful form of pomegranate for anti-aging is its oil. Pomegranate oil’s bioflavonoids and fatty acids make it excellent at protecting the skin from sun damage. In fact, in vitro research even demonstrates that pomegranate oil has a natural SPF of eight, making it a great natural sunscreen ingredient.

According to research, pomegranate seed oil appears to be a “safe and effective chemo preventive agent against skin cancer.

Pomegranate seed oil stimulates keratinocyte proliferation. These are cells found in the outer layer of your skin help rejuvenate your skin and reverse skin damage.

Because pomegranate seed oil penetrates so deeply and effectively it doesn’t make the skin greasy and clog pores. It goes to where you need hydration most.

Pomegranate seed oil also contains an essential fatty acid we now know as punicic acid. It’s also called omega 5 and it has been found to reduce inflammation, fend off free radicals and show cancer-fighting abilities. It has been shown to help thicken your skin and improve elasticity making it useful for scarring and stretchmarks as well as premature aging.

Pomegranate seed oil also contains a form of pro-estrogen, which is compatible with your natural hormones, and its hormone supporting and balancing effect has an amazing effect on skin texture since hormones play such a role in the aging process.
