When I think of November, a few activities come to mind: football (watching, not playing), Thanksgiving, holiday shopping, oh, and eating pomegranates. Believe it or not, November marks National Pomegranate Month (yes, there is such a thing). At FITNESS, we’re huge fans of the superfruit for its health benefits. After all, it can do amazing things like clean teeth, regulate cholesterol, prevent arthritis and even help protect against heart disease. In addition, the red fruit also packs some sweet beauty benefits—it contains more antioxidants than red wine and green tea. To celebrate, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite pom beauty products (you’re welcome).
Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream ($13, usa.weleda.com) This luxurious hand cream is loaded with pomegranate seed oil to protect your hands from free radical damage and that dry, cracking feeling winter weather brings. High five!
Burt’s Bees Naturally Ageless Intensive Repairing Serum ($25, burtsbees.com) With pom, primrose and borage oils, this serum acts as a triple threat against fine lines and wrinkles.
Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer ($38, sephora.com) Get glowing, flawless skin with a hefty does of protection with this tinted moisturizer. Pomegranate oil, argan oil and goji berry hydrate the skin while SPF 30 protects against rays.
Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes ($12 for 25, sephora.com) Talk about a refreshing treat: these wipes (with pomegranate extract) remove dirt, makeup and oil while reducing the appearance of pores. Bonus: they’re easy to stash in your gym bag.
